4.0 out of 5 stars Good read for fans, confusing for everyone else, 25 Sept. 2008
This review is from: .hack//G.U.+ Volume 1: v. 1 (Paperback)
Like the title describes it, this is directed for fans of the series, It is a manga based on .Hack//G.U. games for PS2, Since I imagine it is a bit confusing for anyone who didn't play the games I was about to give a 3 star rating but, the art is great and the overall book quality is good(I love most tokyopop releases) so I decided to give it a 4 star, I guess it's because .hack// is a multi-media project(Novels, manga, games, anime complete themselves together) so obviously you need to know a bit of every media to really enjoy it.

The story itself is an alternative version of the games, it's not bad, actually I liked it but some parts feel rushed and are confusing, Some more pages or another volume or two wouldn't hurt if it would mean to make it a more solid tale.

Book quality: 5 out of 5 - I love the artcover, the quality of the cover is good also also, tokyopop relase usually means quality.

Art: 5 out of 5 - Despite not paying attention to the artists when buying manga, Yuzuka Morita is not well known, but it came out as a good surprise, the art is awesome and really captures the feel of the series.

Story: 3 out of 5 - The story is good, an alternative version of the main plot, despite deserving a 4 some parts feel rushed and confused that spoil the fun in some cases, so I must rate it lower.

Overall: 4 out of 5 - The book is good just not great, if you don't know what .Hack// is, probably you won't understand half of the story because it is a sequel to .Hack//Roots(anime) and even if you've seen the anime and didn't play the PS2 games you may find some parts confusing because some key things are not explained like in the game.
Fans will find this manga fun and a nice addition for a collection and I look forward to the rest of the manga.
