There is no competition. .Hack//sign was a strange part of my childhood, and I remember it very well.

For me, there was a dark story behind .Hack//sign. It wasn't the kind of forced darkness that you feel in anime nowadays, like in Shingeki no Kyojin, Naruto and other popular anime. At times, /Hack//sign could be considered reminiscent even of Serial Experiments Lain (a show that although not for everyone, was a masterpiece rivaling even Shinseiki Evangelion), touching on similar subjects such as the willingness of the Japanese and society as a whole, to push away reality for virtual reality, to the point that the very concept of 'reality" becomes distorted.

Just because there is a similar setting, doesn't mean you can compare the two. Both are great in their own respects, but .Hack//sign stands out to me as a contender with many major anime titles as one of the great hidden gems.

Also, if you haven't seen both, there's no way you can vote.

I liked both of them, although I knew what was happening more so in SAO than .hack//SIGN

.hack//Sign, all the way. But the whole .hack// universe is just amazing.

I voted for .hack//SIGN simply because its better. Its not going to win this poll unfortunately. Sword Art Online is Hip, new, and action packed. It is one of the most popular animes out right now. //SIGN is outdated by nearly a generation. SAO is good and has great animation and targets a modern, young audience. //SIGN was more adult themed, and contained enormous amounts of depth. I enjoy SAO but I don't like how close to .hack it actually is. They even had the same music composer who did //SIGN. Thats pretty lousy if you ask me. I feel like SAO followed the plot of the .hack games rather than the anime. Don't get me wrong I like both but .hack logged in first.

Here is a broad role comparison

Kite "Twin blade" - Kirito "the twin blade swordsman"
Blackrose (later on becomes Orca) - Asuna
Aura - Yui
Harold Horwick - Kayaba Akihiko
Data Drain - Dual blades "secret skill"

.hack//Sign, even if I haven't seen it, purely due to the fact that it takes place in the same universe as the oh-so-spectacular .hack//G.U.

Plus SAO's second half blew chunks.

I got my kids watching SAO. I decided they might like .Hack//Sign as well. It's hard to find the complete set now.

Sadly I can't vote here, because I've only seen part of one episode of .hack and I don't even know which one it was


I'm really enjoying SAO though and its my favorite anime at the moment
