GIFT is available only as an extra in the fourth Liminality disc. In Japan, the only way to unlock it was to have all four Data Flags from the Games; the NA release does not require this.



  • In GIFT, the characters are all drawn like ridiculous caricatures of themselves, being made up of triangles, squares and circles, and not acting at all like they normally would.
  • GIFT is non-canon. The episode was created as a way to poke fun at .hack.
  • GIFT is only available in Japanese audio because most of the jokes are something only Japanese people would understand and it would be hard to translate to English.
