* People were disapointed that Haseo couldn't do the wedding event with Natsume. But it actually makes perfect sense. Haseo barely knows her. She joins at the end of the game and it's Haseo's first ever encounter with her. Shino Tabby Alkaid and Bordeaux also join at the end but he knows the first two from Roots and the latter two from the earlier volumes. He had plenty of time to get to know them even if he hasn't seen them in a while. Natsume is basically a stranger to him.

** The [[UpdatedRerelease HD remaster]], ''Lost Recode'', does add the option to marry ''all'' possible party members, so while this may be true story-wise, it would seem it was really just Natsume probably being a last minute addition to the line-up and possibly not having enough time to make her scene.

** There's also the fact that it's a VirtualReality game as well. Even with standard controllers for input, the immersion into one's character blurs the mental lines between reality and fiction; why wouldn't you get invested when it feels less like your character made of pixels lost a day's progress from a PK, and more like ''you'' got [=PKed=]? Characters react with genuine terror and fear when attacked, because their players are practically engrossed into things at the moment. This crosses right into FridgeHorror as well when people react rather.. realistically to some of their deaths in the G.U. games, if you don't just think everyone that gets cut down is a LargeHam.

* FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler: Possibly. In ArthurianLegend, "Morganna", a.k.a. [[EvilSorceress Morgan Le Fay]], is basically [[Myth/CelticMythology the Morrigan]] post-demonization after Christianity stamped out the native religions in the British Isles. Aura is [[{{Anvilicious}} repeatedly]] made out to be CrystalDragonJesus while Morganna will cease to exist when Aura takes power as the new [[DeusEstMachina Goddess of The World]]. Hmmm...]]

* People may think the way characters treat The World takes things to ridiculous levels of SeriousBusiness, but the key thing to keep in mind is that it's a ''MMO game''. For the people who don't know about the life threatening soul stealing dangers that exist, they're just getting into character and having adventures. This is escapism for most people, so naturally they'd be immersed while online.

* In [[DotHack .hack]], Aura's actions throughout the various storylines seem rather random and odd: at first, she runs The World and well, although she does weird thing like, oh, ''Legend of the Twilight''. Then in the GU/Roots storyline she gives up her position as the keystone of The World and everything falls apart, only coming back reluctantly (and even then she basically does absolutely nothing) when the ''real'' world is endangered. What's the logic behind these actions? This: Aura is growing up. In the early series, she was still a child, wanting to fulfill people's expectations of her. That's why she settled into her role as The World's "god" so readily, and also explains ''Legend of the Twilight'': she was ''bored'', and wanted a fun distraction from everyday stuff to entertain herself. By the time GU rolls around, she's entered the "rebellious teenager" stage, resenting her apparent purpose and saying "screw this". That's why she abandoned The World, despite the hefty consequences. I doesn't yet know what exactly she does in ''Link'', but suspects the theme will continue. -@/DarkHunter

* The black rose is a symbol for anarchy, "The World" is falling apart, the moderators are losing control and BlackRose (and Kite) is right there at the center of it all.
