.hack//Roots 24: The HARD GAY challenge

Haseo has always been a conflicted man. Torn between the lure of HARD GAY and his lingering feelings for women, he threw himself into whatever was at hand in order to escape his inner turmoil- drugs, adult tapes, even a career as a movie star. Now, however, the time has come for Haseo to make the final choice- should he challenge Tri-Edge himself for the HARD GAY crown, or let Tabby persuade him to take up life as a family man?

  1. Is it good or bad thing that your made up story is much more entertaining than the one in actual anime? (I think Tabby would be better off with her new boyfriend, Haseo is an bad example for her son. =))

  2. It’s both good and bad, depending on how you look it, but maybe the best thing would be for Bandai to remake the series based on the parody version 😉

    I’m pretty sure Tabby will settle down with Seisaku soon, Haseo definitely isn’t interested in being a family man.
