Sometimes I can handle anime which is eye candy and not much else, although
I will probably get a bit pissed off at paying nearly 20 quid for it :)

You fiend :)  .hack looks pretty damn good - if I had a) a chipped PS2 and
b) more time to learn Japanese, I'd be importing the games - some of the
anime portions look great.  Newtype had a big thing on .hack a few months

or is this a US release?
