EDIT
There have been some recent reports about missing people in the small town of Cheddar. Despite the fact that the police knew what they were dealing with, they disregarded all warnings and sent their men to capture the culprit, though it ended in disaster. In hopes of putting an end to the plight of the city, the police finally turn to the Hellsing organization, a group of elite soldiers who dispose of vampires in order to make the world a better place. A Hellsing member named Alucard is sent to Cheddar to find the vampire responsible for the carnage in that city, though his fate soon becomes intertwined with a young female officer who isn’t aware that her life is about to be changed forever.moreless

    In the small english town of Cheddar, a recent rash of ghoul sightings has forced the local police to investigate. Seras Victoria is one of the cops called in to check things out. She was just a regular cop until she was taken hostage by a vampore priest. Unknown to her, The secret organization known as Hellsing had already sent one of their best agents to handle the problem,Alucard. Alucard is a vampire who hunts over vampires. Alucard get to Seras in time to stop the vampire priest and saves by turning her into a vampire. Overall, the first episode of Hellsing does a great job in introducing the main characters. It is full of action and blood,something a show about vampires should have. Alucard is a cool character and this episode proves that fact. I could go on about how awesome this episode but if I did that, I would ruin it for you. If you like shows about vampires, check this one out.moreless
  • Cool start to a series. In fact, this is probably my favorite anime show.

    8.0
    I really don't know what overcame me to download the "Hellsing" anime series...I'm not the biggest fan of it. However, I *do* love good and evil type things, and this show's concept sounded really good. A Van Helsing type thing with hunters who fight vampires, ghouls, demons and other things that are anything but heavenly.



    I was pleasantly surprised by this show and I will in fact finish the series. It was sort of shocking, how adult this actually was. It's gory, with adult language and demonic images, and some disturbing moments. It's not perfect...in places the voice acting is very dull and it starts off kinda weird, and some places are just too slow in the story. Maybe all anime is like this, I don't know. But still, overall, it was good. If you like anime and stories of vampire hunters you should check this out.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The handgun that Alucard uses is entirely fictional. The .454 Casull is available only in large frame revolvers. The model 1911A frame used by Alucard is currently chambered only for the .45 ACP. In the late 1980s, Colt Arms manufactured a model 1911A in the 10mm, but it was a complete failure because the 10mm proved to be too powerful a round for the model 1911A. The .454 Casull has a ballistic energy coefficient 4 times higher than the 10mm, and about 5.5 times higher than the .45 ACP. A model 1911A would be blown to pieces if ever chambered for the .454 Casull. Most indoor target ranges prohibit the use of a .454 because it is too powerful of a round and will damage the range equipment.

    • Alucard is dracula spelt backwards.

    • The words "Clockwork Giant Pandas" is written above the trigger on Alucard's 454 Casull.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Alucard: Prepare yourself for an eternity in Hell.

    • Seras Victoria: (to Alucard) You're... Not human...
      Alucard: (as Seras runs away) Why? Would you have shot me if I was?

    • Vampire Priest: Wait, stop! Both of us are vampires!
      Alucard: You act more like a cockroach than a proper vampire. Left to your own devices, you would cover the world in your filth. I can't stand your kind, you don't have the self-respect to be a vampire, you undead maggot. You barely even know what you are.

    • Alucard: What a lovely night. It makes me want to have a bite to drink.

    • Alucard: (aiming at the vampire who is using Seras as a human shield) Police girl, I'm going to fire my gun now, and the bullet will rip through your lungs before it hits the maggot vampire's heart. I know you don't want to die tonight, do you want to come with me?
