Hellsing Ultimate

“Come on, get up!
Attack me! You’ve only suffered the loss of your legs!
Summon up your familiars! Transform your body! Heal your severed legs and stand! The evening is still so young. Come on, hurry, hurry, hurry! Pull yourself together – the fun has just begun! Come on! HURRY!”

After I first watched “Hellsing” some years ago, I finally found out about “Hellsing Ultimate”, an OVA which follows the manga’s story.

Animation: 10/10 Absolutely beautiful, but I can still say that I miss that old style of “Hellsing”. Nostalgy. 😦 😥

Plot: 9.5/10 Gripping, well-placed. Not very complex, but it has some exaggerated details. Some plot twists and one unexpected betrayal as well. 😮

Characters: 9.5/10 Realistic, complex and interesting; Alucard’s true power is shown here. I appreciated that some certain hints, like how the vampire impaled people and the appearance of the main character at the end of the final battle, led directly to Dracula, aka the Romanian ruler, Vlad the Impaler. (I mean other hints than: AlucarD–>DraculA). *yep, and there are even more hidden references XD*

Music:10/10 Perfect, just perfect.

Action: 10/10 Battles are well-placed, and completely over-the-top without feeling stupid or ridiculous. Very little combat lag or annoying prolongations.

Overall: 9.75/10

I also recommend the Abridged series. Sooooo funneh! XD
