Japanese CGI-animated adaptation of the three '.hack//G.U.' video games from CyberConnect2. The story focuses on the 'massively multiplayer online role-playing game' (MMORPG) called 'The World:R2' where Haseo (voice of Takahiro Sakurai) is one of the players. Haseo comes across Azure Kite (Sayaka Aida), who Haseo feels is responsible for the attack on his friend Shino (Kaori Nazuka). Haseo fights Azure Kite but proves to be no match for him. Haseo is left defeated and 'data drained' but when he retains the 'Avatar' of Skeith, his abilities strengthen. He then continues to try to find a way to save Shino.
