    Right, I have the 3 volumes of the LotT manga, but I am confused as to what else there is and how the timne line all ties togeather.

    I was wandering if someone could tell me what series there are ion the .hack series and what medias they are (manga, anime ect)

    Thanks

    The timeline of .hack// goes as follows.

    First is .hack//AI BUSTER. This a novle prequel to the entire series. I'm not sure how ong it takes place before the rest of the series.
    Then comes.hack//SIGN. this is the anime series.
    Another novel called .hack//ZERO takes place between SIGN and the games.
    Following this is the four games, all in this order, .hack//INFECTION, .hack//MUTATION, .hack//OUTBREAK, .hack//QUARANTINE.
    Taking place at the same time as the games is the OAV that cam ewiht the games, .hack//LIMINALITY and a two volume long novel adaption of the game told form BlackRose point of view called .hack//Another birth
    Four years later, the events of .hack//Legend of the Twlight Bracelet (or just Legend of the Twlight) take place. Not only is LoTB a 3 volume long manga, it also has its own anime series.
    7 years later (I asumming after the game, not LoTB) is when the 3 new games that are ebing created are going to take place, alognw ith the new anime series claled .hack//ROOTS. This new project is called, .hack//G.U. Project.

    Hope that was of some help.

    I came in here looking for just this. I think it's important enough to get a sticky. ^^
