.hack was more than just an anime. It was a cultural phenomenon that transformed the way an entire generation looked at the world around them. This wildly-successful franchise offered us all the chance to escape. Thanks to hack, we no longer had to be normal. We could delve into The World in search of adventure. We could run dungeons, collect treasure, and lose ourselves in virtual labyrinths. Each new installment was a melding of future and past where the rules of reality no longer applied. Hack was our ticket to the wired world, and we couldn't wait to log in. Rena and her twin brother Shugo enter The World, a massive online RPG. Playing as the limited edition characters Kite and Black Rose, the siblings encounter powerful monsters capable of sending players into real world comas. To save themselves - and The World - Shugo and Rena must unlock the secrets of the mysterious twilight bracelet before it's too late.
