G.U.+ follows the player Haseo, a powerful PKKer known as "The Terror of Death". Haseo is obsessed with an infamous PKer known only as "Tri-Edge" who attacked a close friend of his sometime in the past. The manga details Haseo's search for Tri-Edge, and his eventual inclusion in a mysterious group known as "G.U."

Back story of the ps2 game (same title)
In 2015 a fire at the main CC Corp. building resulted in the loss of a lot of data, and The World was forced to shut down. By splicing in data from what would have been another game, CC Corp was able to rebuild the game system. The next year, "The World R:2" was released, but many old players objected because they were unable to bring over their old characters. However, many new users were drawn in by the new style, and over 12 million copies were sold. Though not a match for the previous version's 20 million users, it became the top-selling netgame on the market." As a result of the new world, four major clans (Kestrel, Lunar Tree, Canard, and Raven) came to power. The clans actions shape 'The World', and most players end up taking one side or another during conflicts.

This series is amazing!! The ending was pretty good, and if it had gone a little deeper into
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it might've been classified as tragedy
I wish it had, I love that genre x]
By the way, just buy the manga if its liscenced, there is no point in reading it online unless its like King of Thorn, Recast, *insert other hard-to-find series here*. This is a very popular series and you should just buy the books. This is a great series so, if you like .hack// so much, shouldnt you give them some $$ for their work? Reading it online when you could buy it kinda shows you dont care too much for the series :/

The most interesting one from all .hack series, but still quite simple plot which makes it average...

It's a really great series! And what's more to say is that the art is great as well. It does help that Haseo looks a lot like Sasuke and the voice actor of Haseo and Sasuke are one and the same! <3
But anyway, sticking with the main idea here, if you've played the game already, I advise you to read this anyway. Because I am a gamer (who plays dot hack games thoroughly) and it's pretty easy to notice that things in this manga and the video game aren't exactly the same. It has a great many differences yet following the same lines and procedures the game has.

Also, it even gives you more info on the characters meaning that it shows what's going on with them in reality not just the game. Which is something the PS2 game lacks on some parts. I mean seriously, Kite says "I'll log off for the day." but Haseo says "I'll check my e-mail or the boards." Dude!! It's like he's inhuman!!!!! Only in cartoons, people....

P.S. - You seriously need to give this a shot. You may feel lazy, but that's why laziness isn't a good thing.
