AI buster follows the adventures of Albireo, as he plays a beta version of what will soon be known as "The World." In his journeys, Albireo encounters Lycoris, a failed version of Aura and makes a connection that may turn out to be inseparable.
In the epic prequel to .hack, the avatar Albireo is a solo adventurer in The World, the most advanced online fantasy game ever created. When he comes across Lycoris, a strange little girl in a dungeon, Albireo wonders if she's simply nothing more than a bug in the system. As the two journey further into The World, Albireo watches Lycoris turn all of the rules of The World upside down. Slowly, he comes to realize that she may hold a very deadly secret—a secret that could unhinge everything in cyberspace... and beyond!
