The .hack//G.U. Logo

.hack Conglomerate is the sequel to "Project .hack" and the group of companies behind this second chapter of the series, although no true "conglomerate" has been formed. The companies include Victor Entertainment, Nippon Cultural Broadcasting, Bandai, TV Tokyo, and Kadokawa Shoten. Whereas Project .hack takes place in The World, the new generation takes place mainly in The World R:2, after the data from the original game was mostly lost.


The "2nd Season" .hack series produced by .hack Conglomerate are typically referred to as .hack//G.U. The majority them begin with .hack//G.U., like .hack//G.U.: Rebirth, or some differentiation to GU, like .hack//GnU.


This is a list of the meanings for the acronym G.U. Many of these are just a different version of one meaning. CC2 has said that the official abbreviation is Grow Up (成長), but they have hidden 12 other meanings within the game, with variations of those meanings.
