Summary: Awsome, if you don't get it i don like you
Review: .Hack is the most awsome manga book I've ever read! They made 4 .Hack games, an anime series and now the manga's finally out in america. It's 100% authentic manga meaning you read it right to left. It has almost 200 pages and it's so good I read it in an hour-and a half. What happens 2, 14-year old twins named Shugo and Rena enter a game called the world where they meet a lot of interesting players and one Shugo already knew. they won the charecters the dot hackers kite and Black Rose [see .Hack Infection.] Anyway it's the best book I've ever read. If you love Anime and vidio games but hate reading this is the book for you. It's rated T [thirteen and up] so it's not appropriate for young readers.

Summary: The absolute worst
Review: .hack//legend of the twighlight is the absolute worst manga I have ever read it can't get any worse than this i rather read pokemon. Their is absolutely no story. except they go into the world and do stuff WOO just want I want to read I can go and do that at my own house. If you like this manga their is something terribly wrong with you. It is so boring. The worst and sickest part is that the main charachter is in love with his sister. Most of the charachters are annoying and have no point. Overall this is horrible no one should read it. If you do buy it buy it just to stomp all over it and then throw it into the fire. You will see how bad it is once you get it.

Summary: The Missing Piece
Review: Few .hack fans in the US are aware that the missing piece of the .hack universe is a manga series that has been available in Japan, but until now has not been translated into English. I've impatiently awaited their appearance and snapped this up as soon as I saw it was available.

The series is set after the events in the game. Shugo and Rena, a pair of 14-year-old novices to The World win limited edition avatars - the 'dot hacker' set that Blackrose and Kite made famous. No sooner do they start adventuring than it becomes clear that these are more than costumes. Then a visit from Aura provides Shugo with Kite's bracelet, and they quickly draw the attention of other familiar players. These include Balmung, Helga, and even Orca. All wondering if history is trying to repeat itself.

Gradually, the pair make new friends and start playing in the virtual world. This first volume serves more to build the settings than to detail any hair-raising adventures. Most of their experiences seem to arise out of the interference of Balmung, who is now a system administrator. They are being tested to find out if they are more than simple players - a strange fate seems to dog their steps. But for now, the mood is mostly silly.

To be honest, I found the manga a bit disappointing. Both the TV series and the OVA set are fairly intelligent stories - as much about the players and both their lives as they are about gaming in a virtual fantasy. The game itself is fairly straightforward, suitable for a wide range of ages. The manga, however, seem tuned to the younger end of the spectrum. The characters are depicted more as children than young adults. Their behavior is in much the same vain.

It is probably unfair to expect all the parts of .hack to be written for the same audience, but the manga are shallower than I would have ever expected. Of course, the prevailing mood can change at any time, but so far the most dramatic moments seem to arise out of Shugu's defenses of Rena's virtual honor. And his outrage when she isn't all that thrilled with his efforts.

Still, if you are a .hack junky you are going to want to have this. And it is neither expensive or offensive. Just another piece of .trivia .

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Not the best manga ever, but still an enjoyable read.
Review: I havent played the .hack PS2 games, but I wanted to read this because it seemed interesting. Its not very long, and its not the best ever, but I enjoyed it and I think its a good read for manga fans. Its interesting. In the beggining I thought it might be a confusing book, but it ended up non confusing in the late beggening and in the rest of the story. Its a little short and it ended before I expected it to, but it makes up for that with its great humor, action and style.

Rating: 3 stars
Summary: Is This The Direction of the .Hack Series?
Review: I just got this manga. All I can reall say about it is that it is quite interesting. The book takes place after the four PS2 games. The main characters in the PS2 game, Blackrose & Kite, are immortalized in "The World" as hero's. Their avatars are being given away as a marketing campaign. The story takes place right as the win the give away. The two who win the avatar's are named Shugo and Rena. This manga is only worht buying if you are completly enthralled by the .hack series, other than that to any other person this would seem like some weird comic.

Summary: C-O-O-L!!!
Review: I know this book SAYS it's rated T. But that doesn't mean you can't read it! I'm a pre-teen, and I read the whole thing in one day! It didn't even have alot of mature things in it! If your telling me, it should have an E rating. But anyway, the book was awesome!!! Especially the Cerberaus part when they fought him. And I also like the Japenese style of reading right-to-left. Plus I like the concept. It's halairious!!! I was laughing in my head at some parts. Like I said, T rating, E concept.

Rating: 5 stars
Summary: Good manga.
Review: I really like manga, so when I saw this in a bookstore, i picked it up and starteed reading. It is really good! It's about two kids who are playing in a virtual reality game as the famous .hack hackers. the only two people to ever finish the game. It's an interesting read, the boy get a 'twilight bracelet' and a kiss from a mysterious girl. It's a very good read when you're bored with nothing else to do.

Rating: 5 stars
Summary: I Loved This Manga
Review: I really loved .Hack//Legend of the Twilight. It was really funny, but it also had a good storyline. The artwork was awesome, too. If you do end up reading this, you should check into watching the show, .Hack//SIGN

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Good...yet a tad racy
Review: I recently got sucked into the dothack fandom via my little brother, so i bought this immediately when i found it.
The setting the manga is much more lighthearted and carefree than the serious, thoughtful, almost urgent facade of the anime and the video games. Yet this also has it's mature side, featuring some pinups and panty shots that will definitely make you pull a double take when you see them.
All in all, a good read if you like dothack, but the uninitiated might want to start with the other products, considering (timeline-wise) the anime comes first, then the video games, then the manga.
