its after all the other .hack stuff, after cc corp had been burnt down along with a ton of game data etc.

so they remade the world (now the world r2) and just after that it seems is where roots starts off

its the first half (maybe less then half actually) of the new .hack story after the previous stuff and the story is continued on by the 3 new ps2 games (.hack//gu)

if you want to find out more, just search for it at wikipedia :D

well after watching the last few episodes of Roots I'm confused...

Is this right:

Ovan was captured and they attempted to delete his PC, but the AIDA saved him, however then Shino found him, the AIDA (which he describes as like a Cancer) breaks out, kills her and puts her into a coma. Tri-Edge went there to kill Ovan, but when he arrived, Haseo was standing over Shino and so he left.

[The whole PKK and the Terror Of Death stuff happened]

Ovan somehow manages to draw Tri-Edge to the Temple, and then sends Haseo there. Haseo and Tri-Edge fight, and Haseo is Data-Drained. Because he has 'the factor' (Skeith) in him, he isn't put into a coma but he is logged off the world and his charecter is back at level 1.

He logs in to discover he is a level 1 again. Also for some reason, his attitude is back to how it was before Shino was PK'd.

i dont know about all of that, but this is what i think:

seemed like ovan broke out (when he was captured) on his own or in a way we dont know about yet, but i dunno about that.

you said shino found him, but the aida broke out and put her in a coma, but i'm pretty sure it was just tri edge that data drained her and put her into a coma (like everyone else - the romours about people going against tri edge and being put in a coma, if i remember correctly). unless that is what you meant :D

but didnt haseo see tri edge kill shino? thats why he wanted to get tri edge. but i cant remember that far back lol

and we (well i dont, i havent played the games) dont know for sure that ovan did lure haseo into a fight with tri edge. it seems like it, but im not so sure, maybe i just dont want ovan to be bad :P but then again, maybe he realy is good but is seen as bad, and before that seen as good :S lol... anyway...

and about his attitude after him being data drained. it seems like he still has quite some hate for the whole game and people in it (which he didnt have before shino was put in a coma) but he's realised he failed, and by a long way when he finially managed to face tri edge, which is what he was trying to do for months, so maybe he realised that what phyllo (sp?) said about him not being able to beat tri edge etc was quite true :P

But in a later episode where Ovan's escape is shown he appears at the church, looks at his arm and says it saved him. Then Shino comes running in, and he begins to scream as if in pain, and the giant gun-arm begins to throb and seems like it's gonna break. All Haeso sees is Shino falling after being PK'd, and Tri-Edge walking away.

In the Volume 2 of GU cutscenes we see Ovan's arm split open, and it becomes a sythce-like thing which kills the pink-haired women (Pia I think) and Kuhn in one swipe each.

Ovan says to himself at the end of Roots "Become stronger, strong enough to kill me." he looks at the 'Sign' and says "If you don't, that..."

Also he says that his 'problem' is the same one Phyllo is having, most likely Phyllo's cancer. He's saying his AIDA is like a cancer. Maybe Ovan isn't the bad guy, but the AIDA he has is bad and is making him do the terrible things.

Hm, so Roots Is about the Tri-Edge? Isn't there a game coming or already out about that? I believe I saw a trailer for it on the internet.

Roots is about Haseo. Between when he first logs in and a bit after he gets data drained.

.hack//G.U. Vol. 1 is out. It's what happens after he gets data drained, such as his mastery of Skeith, his turn from being a PKK, and his final showdown with Azure Kite.

Ahh, I see. So Haseo is the main character. But the Tri-edge is one of the characters? Kay. Is it out on DVD or just on air?
