.hack//Roots 23: The Truth Comes Out

Much as they’ve tried to keep it hidden, the truth had to come out eventually- Hideo is the illicit lovechild of Tabby and Haseo. Although Tabby officially has custody of him, she tries to encourage Haseo to take an active part in his son’s life- but will he want to participate in such a blatant reminder of his pre-HARD GAY lifestyle? Meanwhile, Yata invests in a cable upgrade so that he can enjoy some new channels.
