Hack//Roots Vol 1
It was the year 2015 and for millions of gamers it was the year ‘The World’ came to an end. Caught within a mysterious fire, all the datacenters containing the world’s most popular game was destroyed, taking with it all the information about the game. Taking elements from what was to be a different game, ‘the World’ is reborn as ‘The World R:2.’ However as millions of players, both new and old flood the servers, they soon discover that this new version isn’t as forgiving as its previous incarnation. Being one of these new players, Haseo finds himself not only the target of countless Player Killers, but of two rivaling guilds, who hope to use him in pursuit of their own agendas.

But I like it.
As others have said, the pacing is off. Nothing much seems to go on for large chunks of time. On top of that, one of the things that really turned me off were the characters in general. It's like every griefer from every MMO you've ever played all banded together in one place. I can't stand those people in my games, and they're not any more entertaining when I watch them animated on my television. The heroes aren't really much better, and it's hard for me to get on their side, or become emotionally invested in their quest.
Whatever happened to wreck The World, it wrecked the francise too. This is for die hard fans only.
The later episodes of ROOTS, like SIGN, actually matter to the overall story and have some action. It's worth the wait.
