5.0 étoiles sur 5An excellent novel for .hack fans.7 juin 2006
Par Rebecca Herman - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the first book in a series of novels that tell the story of the .hack video game series from the perspective of Akira Hayami, the Japanese teenager who plays the character of BlackRose.
Akira is just a normal teenage girl, who doesn't even like video games much. She prefers to concentrate on her studies and on doing the best she can as a member of her school's tennis team. But when Akira's younger brother, Fumikazu, falls into a coma while playing the popular online role playing game "The World," her priorities change. She decides she will do whatever necessary to save her brother, and she believes the video game is likely responsible. So she creates a character, BlackRose, and enters The World, where she meets Kite, the main character from the games. Kite's best friend also fell into a coma while playing the game, and now he's on a quest to save him. BlackRose decides to help him, and the two uncover the horrifying truth that The World is not just a game and there is real danger in playing it.
I'm a big fan of the .hack series, particularly the video games, so I was very eager to read this novel when I saw it would be coming out in English. I'm happy to say I was not at all disappointed. Akira's point of view gives a fresh perspective to the story, so that it doesn't seem like just an exact repeat of the games. I definitely plan to read the rest of the books in this series when they are released, and I would recommend this book to all .hack fans.

.hack//Another Birth is a novelization of a video game screenplay. Adding in the fact it was translated from Japanese into English, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that this isn't exactly what you consider quality reading. The narrative is boring, character relationships are rather flat, the dialog is pretty basic (especially in the beginning), and it won't take masterful readers more than 2-3 hours to digest. Casual readers who haven't watched the anime (or for that matter, even know about the anime) should avoid this waste of their money at mimimal costs.
On the other hand...
This book will appeal to longtime fans of the .hack// franchise - which I'm sure is the audience to which this book is being marketed. The book doesn't bring much of anything new to the table and you'll stand shocked as you watch BlackRose and Kite exchange what seems like half of their lines (mostly in the beginning of the book) as seen in .hack//INFECTION (the video game).
I think the best thing that can be said about this book is that it will look good on your shelf along with your other .hack// merchandise. More than enough reason to buy it for collectors like me.

Having played the games read the manga and watched the anime this manga series was a must for me . Its amazing and great read , without spoiling too much its .Hack the Ps2 games told trough Black Rose point of view and gives insight of what shes going trough both in game and out game life . At times its touching and can get rather sad , great story that invokes a wide range of emotions .

If you are new to the series this is the book for you reading it would make you want to buy the second one or try out the games. I truly lobe how the story goes and even Blackrose lies about what she say to Kite when the first meet (compared to the game) this is a great book. This0 story is told from her point of view. You will love it and feel nostalgic.
