Overcooled and Hato-kun head back into the World once again!
Hato-kun: So we’re back again for more .hack!
Overcooled:Yessss~ .hack//sign was so good I actually bought the boxset
Hato-kun: And is that Hanazawa? Because that sounded so much like Nessa
Overcooled: I dunno. I know Miyuki Sawashiro is in this though. Actually, yeah, it sounds a lot like Nessa XD
Hato-kun:This already seems soooo much better than Sign and LotT. AND IT’S A FEMALE KITE
Overcooled:I know…the animation is already way better. Kite with boobs is so cute!
Hato-kun:They were already fighting lizard things AND THEN RAPTORS HAPPEN.
Overcooled:Dinosaurs make everything more badass
Hato-kun:Agreed. Well, I’m fine with an all female cast in an online game.
Overcooled: Black Rose is called Mary now? XD
Hato-kun:Black Rose, that’s what her name was. Oh, a cat. I hope that’s a player.
Overcooled: BWAAA KAWAIII
Hato-kun:Yes, I’m hoping that’s a raid..
Overcooled:Look, Hato! A loli! DO YOU LIKE THAT?
Hato-kun:DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS. IT’S A RAID YESSS! ONYXIA! RESISTANT TO DAMAGE!
Overcooled: Yeah apparently it’s about some huge raid that goes terribly wrong somehow.
Hato-kun:This is so awesome. It’s more a game this time and less depressing.
Overcooled:I know!!! It feels like they’re actually in danger!
Hato-kun:Wow, she sounds manly for a loli.
Overcooled:I was about to say…she sounds like a man.
Hato-kun:It probably is. That’s probably me playing -_-
Overcooled:Lol at the subbers… “no shit?!”
Hato-kun:She did something bad. This is not going to end well. Or rather…it will end awesomely.
Overcooled:Awesome for us. : D
Overcooled: IZAYA! And that cat is a hacker for sure.
Hato-kun:Ahahaha. Yeah, I’m liking this new Kite. And that dragon is gonna get ’em so bad. FIGHT FIGHT.
Overcooled: The characters are cute and monsters are badass…I could get used to this.
Hato-kun:If online gaming was like this, I would be sooo happy.
Overcooled:*i know, i want to play this *drools* Smokebomb on a straight path LOL WHERE DID THEY GO.
Hato-kun: I CANNOT SEE THEM THEY MUST BE GONE.
Overcooled:Oh wow, so she’s like balmung…or whatever his name was. o_o
Hato-kun:Yeah, she’s Balmung. Hey, a sunset in a game? Man, I’m going to forget all their names…
Overcooled:Lol I know. Real life names + IGNS is too much to remember. Hopefully the real life is interesting too XD
Hato-kun: Into the real world, eh? Wow, over the fence, that’s pretty cool. You reckon that’s game influence?
Overcooled:Listen up: games make kids do dangerous stunts like rape people and climb fences.
Hato-kun:BALACLAVA. Damn those fences. Okay the information dealer girl is awesome.
Overcooled:Omg yes. Win.
Hato-kun:And she died…Wow, a bounty xD Now she’s a PK.
Overcooled:Can’t they just permaban her? Why a bounty?
Hato-kun:They all handle it in game, it’s kinda cool. Okay, so her friend must not play because she doesn’t know HOW AWESOME IT IS.
Overcooled:I would play that thing everyday regardless of tests.
Hato-kun:Yes. We could make a Metanorn guild and eff people up.
Overcooled:lol we could do that too.
Hato-kun: Drama is not very interesting.
Overcooled:That tends to happen when it comes to the real world…=p it’s never as interesting.
Hato-kun:But it’s a nice break from, crazy action. Yep, hacker.
Overcooled:Okay wow, he IS a hacker.
Hato-kun:And they even had a server maintenance fairy, awesome. Fishing xD
Hato-kun:D’awwwwww. Okay, that cat is the best character ever.
Overcooled:I knowwww and he doesn’t even have pants.
Hato-kun: Awww, he doesn’t even have friends either 🙁
Overcooled: Awww, qq cat hacker D=
Hato-kun:Uh-oh, already captured.
Overcooled:This bag is made of steel YOU CANNOT ESCAPE.
Hato-kun:Holy shit, dude. It was just a wiped raid.
Hato-kun:When they all die. And who does he look like!
Overcooled:Ginko from Mushi-shi!
Overcooled:OH SNAP HE’S PRO.
Hato-kun:He must be Korean.
Hato-kun:Oh yeah, they are monitoring the net. That’s so cool.
Overcooled:Way to go Izaya~
Hato-kun:He can’t run very fast because he’s a cat.
Overcooled:Yeah…the bipedal thing isn’t working out for him.
Hato-kun:Three way battle! Mobs, players! This is actually really exciting.
Overcooled:These battles are so LOVE…as in.I love them…not..full of love…
Overcooled:…lolwut CGI. and yes, definitely love battles.
Hato-kun:Man, whoever designed this area is awesome.
Overcooled:Oh man, it really looks like a game area too. I’m getting deja vu.
Hato-kun: NOOOOOO! Eaten by darkness.
Overcooled: HE PUNCHED A KITTEN IN THE FACE AND NOW THE WORLD EXPLODED. THAT’S WHAT YOU GET.
Hato-kun:That’s why you never kill a korean. That’s what happens in Starcraft as well.
Overcooled:lol yes, don’t mess with them…o____o
Hato-kun:Oh snap, the Warr got owned. Uh oh pain is real: LOG OUT!!! NOW!!!
Overcooled:OH MAN THIS IS INTENSE.
Hato-kun:NO NOT HER FRIEND NO OH GOD.
Overcooled:Video games = Serious business. OMG NO IT ENDED?
Overcooled:I have to wait for he next one??? TT_TT
Hato-kun:WHEN’S THE NEXT ONE.
Overcooled:I don’t know, I don’t know!! (Update: all the episodes are out, it’s all up to the subbers for when episode 2 and 3 come out…)
Hato-kun:Oh man. That’s not cool. And this song is really bad.
Overcooled:lol I guess no yuki kajiura for this one.
At times, the animation in Quantum amazing.
ONYXIA RETURNS. THIS TIME, IMMUNE TO DAMAGE.
Just pretend like nothing happened…
Hato-kun:Okay, that’s awesome.I wasn’t expecting it to be that awesome.
Overcooled:Same…damn. I thought they were just trying to milk the series for more money. I want more :B
Hato-kun:I totally agree with you. From what I can remember of Sign, it was really slow, really depressing, really dark, and I couldn’t determine the gender of the main character.
Overcooled:Yeah, it was a lot more psychological and slow…probably because it was like 24 episodes too while this is 4. Well, now it’s simpler because everyone’s a chick pretty much XD
Hato-kun:Yeah, I’m glad they made it easier to tell, lol. I’m actually genuinely sad that I have to wait for the next episode. If they made a whole series like that, I’d watch it non-stop.
Overcooled:The pacing was nearly perfect. They always have something interesting going on.
Hato-kun:Pacing was brilliant. The whole IRL drama was good as well. It seemed a bit more like Legend because it was much more colorful (mostly because of Kite’s clothes and hair..)
Overcooled:Yeah, but legend was….too colorful…XD
Hato-kun:Because that’s what happens wen you play online games heaps -_- You suck at classes and yo’ friends are like ‘You bad!’
Overcooled: Well, I think the drama will get more intense than studying with that sudden KNIFEFIST TO THE STOMACH that might have killed Mary…They don’t understand! The gaming world is important too! I envy that chick who can cram the night before though.
Hato-kun:The envyyyyy. If I could do that, I wouldn’t even bother with studying.
Overcooled:Bleh, I can’t wing anything any more in university. I have to study T_T
Hato-kun:I’m going to have to study in Uni, I dread it. I really hope they start researching that kind of technology.
Overcooled:…and yes. they need to get on that. 3DS doesn’t cut it.
Hato-kun:Lol, 3DS ain’t got nothing on this. Before I die, I want to play that game.
Overcooled:…lol you can be the loli.
Hato-kun:I saw that coming from a mile away -_-
Overcooled:I know. I can’t help it. It’s who you are!
Hato-kun:I’ll be that creepy player who creates female characters and scams money off all the dudes. The perfect plan.
Overcooled:…that’s what I do. except I’m actually a female.
Overcooled:Noooo, I’m teaching them a lesson. kekeke~
Hato-kun:Yeah, then they actually get smart. So they are all in coma’s? Oddly reminiscent of Sign (or most likely all the .hack anime…)
Overcooled:Maybe. That or some of them end up still being awake. I think some of them escaped. But coma for the not so lucky ones is more likely given the trend.
Hato-kun:Balmung is okay though. Warrior and Lol-mage escaped, because they’re the smart ones.
Overcooled:Yeah, and the kitty. Unless he’s in a coma to begin with. Oooohhhh.
Hato-kun:Oh yeah, what happened to Hermit? Yeah, that’s what I reckon too. That or he’s fallen into a coma in a coma.**Inception bass**
Overcooled:lolllll well, I saw THAT one from a mile away
Hato-kun:It’s funny how the series have generally gotten more action packed and lighter. Though I haven’t seen .Roots, from Legend to Quantum is a pretty crazy jump. And in Legend they said it had changed because they keep on updating The World.
Overcooled:It’s definitely a good turn. While I did like .hack//sign, I don’t think I would want another slow one.
Hato-kun:So maybe that’s their excuse for changing it a lot? The game just keeps getting patched, lol.
Overcooled:I don’t even care about the game unless it’s like the anime. lol I dunno if patches have to do with it, but that would be interesting.
Hato-kun:I bet some hardcore Sign fans are outraged by this new direction.
Overcooled:How dare they have a girl who plays a girl character! I declare shenanigans!
Overcooled:But aside from those crazy people…that was plain awesome.
Hato-kun:I’m glad I opted to review this, I knew it was the right choice! Also, “Theres going to be a manga called .hack//Quantum+ and a novel called Twin Hearts for .hack//Quantum.” I might have to read that…
Overcooled:Mmmm manga. Is it a continuation from where it will end after 3 episodes?
Hato-kun:Apparently so. Also, Mary was Kneesocks!
Overcooled:Wow! I can see it/hear it now.
Hato-kun:And Tobias is the Baby from Beelzebub xD And Celty! and Saeko from HotD
Overcooled:Bawww the cat has like no roles. And yeah, its Miyuki Sawashiro! OF COURSE!!!SHE’S ONLY LIKE MY FAVOURITE FEMALE SEIYUU
Hato-kun:She’s not too bad.
