.hack//Roots 26 [end]: HARD GAY’s Greatest Loss

…and yes, I watched this episode myself too! What is the world coming to?

The unthinkable has happened. Phyllo, staple of the Mac Anu bridge and chief coordinator of The World:r2’s HARD GAY, is gone. As the male players try to adjust to this unexpected loss, they must decide whether they can now continue along the HARD GAY path, or if it is time to throw in the towel. Meanwhile, Tabby confesses her true feelings, and Yata grudgingly pays his cable bills.

  1. Nope, the thing you should do is to fine the Game’s version of .Hack Root and play it. Because it was the sequel of the anime.

  2. Uh, yeah…the point is that with this series (and several others) finishing this week, I will need to find something else to write about if I want to fill the gaps that have just opened up.

    As for .hack//GU, well, since I’m not particularly enthusiastic about the ‘new generation’ .hack or console gaming in general, I’m not going to be rushing out to buy a copy of volume 1 when the English version hits the shelves. If I do buy it at all, it’ll be when the game is going cheap.

  3. Vere Sad i dont Want it End =/ anyway i dont care how much cost the game i going buy it orginal i just wait for English Gu will out =/ i vere much want play it the sux thing its 3 parts need buy 3 games =/ i wish they reless all together

    =/

  4. wow ur so funny with hard gay at the end of every sentence not that anyone in the world couldnt have done that but you captain douche did it first good job.

  5. It’s funny how you make fun of the new series since the old one pretty much sucked. Hey lets all talk for 12 hours and not do anything EVER! Balmung was the only cool character until now.

  6. Wow. You managed to get me to ‘watch’ .hack//ROOTS even though I swore I wouldn’t until they switched in some better character designs. Either way–this version rocks; may Haseo fare well on his Bi path and not be swayed back to Hard Gay by the excessively rosy Endrance he’ll meet later on.
