.hack the movie

  • Hi Funimation,

    I am pretty interested by the .hack animes, and I previously bought .hack//Quantum.
    I think, there is only one anime/oav/movie which is not released or to be released: .hack the movie.
    Have you got the rights for this element of the .hack license?
    Have you scheduled the release of this movie on your roadmap?

    Thx a lot!


  • Are you referring to the film ".hack//Sekai no Mukou ni" that was released in 2012, by chance? If so, then unfortunately no, it hasn't been licensed. Time will only tell at this point if FUNimation will ever go back and acquire it. Maybe if their re-releases of the various .hack series sell well, perhaps? :hmm:

    At any case, if you'd like to see FUNimation pick up the rights to the film, then the best things to do would be:

    1. Post in the official "Anime Title Suggestions" forum thread requesting the film: http://www.funimation.com/forum/showthread.php?102-Shows-and-Movies-You-d-Like-FUNimation-to-Pick-Up-Thread-Episode-IV-A-New-Forum

    2. Send a message to FUNimation's Facebook and Twitter accounts regarding the film (please be polite about it, though).

    3. Support the .hack series by purchasing all the series re-releases as they come out, and recommend others to do the same.

    That's not a guarantee of anything, but if they see enough people supporting the franchise, they might look into getting the film rights as well.

  • Thank you for the answer. :)
    You are right, that's the name of the movie.
    I will follow your advice. ^^
