in .hack//SIGN yes, but in the .hack//GAMEs, .hack//ROOTS (why would you watch this?) and the .hack//GU games it was a large number of players. nowhere near 10,000 though, and it was completely different circumstances and the comatose players were completely different than the SAO players.

also, the HMD and nervgear/amusphere are completely different types of devices.

Not to add fuel to this thread of flames.

But .hack was a 2002 series. In it's earliest form.

SAO was started in 2009 as a LN.

.hack//Sign premiered on April 4, 2002. The first SAO light novel was published April 10, 2009.

The clear error you made was saying the light novel series of SAO came out first. The author first published SAO online in 2002, so it may have well pre-dated the premiere of the .hack series. (I have been unable to find a exact date or month of release, so lets just assume it was January 1). The .hack series would have already been in production, however, and therefore couldn't have possibly ripped off SAO (assuming they were even aware of it).

This thread is new and exciting :P

Both series debuted in 2002. .Hack as a video game and anime and SAO as a short story. Was Reki Kawahara inspired by .Hack at the time? Perhaps. Though I don't know how long he had spent conceptualizing and writing his story- it could have been years in the making. That's all conjecture on my part though because I haven't read any pertinent interviews done by the man.

Deriving inspiration from a work or genre doesn't really constitute a ripoff though. Especially when you consider that both franchises were presented in entirely different formats at the time
