hey guys, so i just finished watching .hack//sign and felt like a lot of things were left underdeveloped. Then i saw that there were OVA episodes but those only served to confuse the crap out of me with new characters out of nowhere and such. wanting some clarity, i hit up wikipedia only to find out just how EXPANSIVE the .hack franchise is! I dont even know where to start so i was wondering how i should go about it if i wanted to really wrap my head around the .hack universe. I'm mainly interested in the cast from //sign and Aura, but from the looks of things i've seen all there is to see on that.

anyone care to help me decide on an attack plan? i really wanna get all the essentials so i'm not lost but i wanna save the optional stuff (like "Gift) for later on.

btw, i have a feeling the OVA eps werent meant to be seen right after //sign or something. any idea on what i missed in between?

I'll be honest, there's a lot of stuff to go over & it seems there'll still be stuff coming, but the above link should give you an idea of where to start.

Ahh gotta love that complex story that makes your brain hurt, brings back fond memories. Here is A link to the the .hack wiki (Instead of just the generic one) which will help a lot in regards to explanations when used with Zombie Panda's link.

lol. Ah, how I love .hack//.
Don`t think I can help you,
but I think you really would like the stories more than those links.
Yea, the video games, .Hack//infection is where it all started, I think. There`s also the books, .hack//another birth.
They go through the video games, so it`s four books long. Really quick reads, and they`re easier than going through all the links. XD
They make things make sense.
Of course, there are other parts to it, like the twilight saga (is that it?) and Ai Buster, but Kite/Blackrose`s stories are the most important.
But, since you`d not like to do all that, you can read the boring links. XD

Uh, maybe try reading the mangas (I don't know if its the same storyline or maybe just altered a bit) but its worth a shot

Oh, yea, forgot.
.Hack//XXXX.
Haven`t read it, but I hear it`s basically the same storyline.
