Hello, everyone. I present to you the wonderful .hack online novel, .hack//Bullet. On this page I will add links to not only the chapters which can be read online, but also to PDF files I will make available that will allow you to read the novel on an eBook reader or tablet with neat formatting and images!

*Names are switched to the western style of Given name, then Family name.

English Fan Translation by Kazetrigger

Story Summary
The year is 2023, three years after the Immortal Dusk* Incident. With the hacker-group Schicksal dissolved, having resigned from CyberConnect Corp., and the position of Network-Trouble Consultant now vacant, Ryuuji Sogabe is forced to scrape together a living. However, when an unexpected request from a former colleague is put forward, the evil plot surrounding “The World” drags Ryuuji back into the fold. In this blood-stained final battle, will he come out the victor?

*Immortal Dusk is the name of the event Geist wished to create in the .hack//LINK game.

    1. The PDF version is currently on hold. If I decide to get back to it, I will fix grammar and spelling errors, improve the translation, and format it really nicely. It may take some time and I won’t provide any timeline at the moment. Sorry, but stay tuned. I hope the story gets finished soon.


  1. Hello!!! I had to comment, because you are doing a great job translating .hack // Bullet. Kazertrigger you saved me. I’ve been looking for this very Web novel … Oh’m from Brazil and I am a fan !! And when out new chapters? Thanks in advance for translation.

  3. Hey guys! Just wanted to say thanks a lot to all the people involved in //Translate. I Just finished .hack//Link a couple of weeks ago for the first time, and I enjoyed it quite a lot (even though the gameplay was a little too repetitive for me) and now I started to read .hack//Bullet.

    I was wondering if you guys are planing on finishing the translation of this novel, or now that with the new novel, you will focus on that one?

    Again, thank you all for all your hard work!


  4. Just wanted to say awesome job. Keep up the good work. With being able to purchase .Hack//G.U. Last Recode my interest in dotHack has been renewed.

    Looks like last post was made some months ago. No rush but I do hope you continue this
