Anyone know why they're calling episode 28, 'fan-made'? Was it based on a Japanese fanfic or something?

The DVD? "Terminus" I believe. So only the limited edition has this episode? That's sort of...unfair.

Though I do not know much about the 28th episode, the 27th is an introduction, albeit vague, to the game character Gardenia. Her introduction is given through a flashback of Mimiru's past, aka when she first started playing The World. Anyways, hope that clears up questions about 27. Cool

To quote Inez Freissange, oh please, let me explain.

Episode 28 is also known as .hack//GIFT. It is an OVA, not a regular episode of .hack. I think it's not fan-made, rather done by Cyberconnect2, the people who did the video games. More information can be found here at dothackers.net but in short, it's a wacky sort of meeting of the characters from the games and from //SIGN. This is definitely one worth plunking down the extra $5 for if you came all this way on the Platinum Editions. Anime smile
