In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?
I feel that the high quality of the animation, the storyline that focuses on a youth stranded from home in a very alien world, that youth's journeys as he meets others who wish to help him, and the dark force that's pulling the strings of all the strange hapenings, are all good reasons for anyone that enjoyed FFU to enjoy Hack//Sign as well.
Two great fantasy stories. Both carry the same characteristics in terms of story. If you like one im sure you'll love the other. I did ^_^
FF:U features young protaganists stranded in a strange fantasy world, aided by a handful of capable adults who may know more than they let on. The world in FF:U is highly structured, and the pace is deliberate. .hack//SIGN shares many of these qualities, from the young protaganist stranded in a fantasy world to the deliberate pace. .hack//SIGN is also highly structured. There are many similarities in tone, execution, and pace between the two shows, but enough differences to be interesting.
Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
While the overall feel of Final Fantasy Unlimited and ScryeD are vastly different, one thing remains the same... the guy with the funky arm is the trump card to evil's plans. Great visual effects make both of these anime series worth watching, and the action's pretty decent, too.
Gene Starwind and Jim Hawkins make a living on various jobs and bounties. While waiting for their ticket to hit it big time, a mysterious woman named Hilda leaves them with a key to the puzzle of finding a starship of great power, known only as the Outlaw Star. What are these long lost spaceships and what is the Galactic Leyline?
Some of the big fights in FFU reminded me of Outlaw Star--all the amazing attacks that Gene can do with his gun, for instance. Additionally, if you liked FFU's knack for constantly introducing strange and alien settings, Outlaw Star will deliver the same, though admittedly with more of a sci-fi than fantasy touch.
“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Trigun and Final Fantasy Unlimited both carry their share of unique humor and well-rendered worlds. You'll find the animation styles to be vastly different, but one thing is the same... our main hero has fantastic powers bound to his arm that protect the weak. Entertaining and fun.
