Editorial Reviews

Witness the blood-soaked roots of a legend in Hellsing, the original action-horror series that launched the careers of some of anime's brightest stars. The rogue vampire Alucard is the Hellsing Organization's deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from undead ghouls and satanic freaks. He is not alone in his assault on the occult; the master has a servant. Policewoman Seras Victoria accepted Alucard's gift of dark salvation after falling in the line of duty, and now the remnants of her human soul struggle against her growing vampire urges. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good - and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.

He's killing the franchise.

What he doesn't realize is that by writing that review and scarring off potential customers; (Unnecessarily I might add.) he is effectively killing the franchise...potentially ruining the future experience for others and existing fans such as myself. As an anime man who LOVES, not just this show, but also this FRANCHISE, I can not sit by and let that happen. (I'm going to avoid an offtopic lecture in this review about how important it is to buy and support the anime franchises you love in any way possible; since the industry is so brittle at the moment EVERY show is at risk...) However, I apologize in advance that this may mean I'm slightly biased but, you know what, **** it Hellsing is amazing. Moving on.

For those curious... This is an older adaptation of a manga (Japanese comic) called Hellsing. They made this show WHILE the manga was still being released and eventually the release of the tv series passed the release of the manga series. As such, they had to improvise. This means roughly half of the series doesn't follow the original story as found in the original source material.

Hellsing:Ultimate fixes that problem. It is a more faithful, and more accurate, OAV series (Instead of TV Series...This gave them higher budgets per episode and no restrictions in the gore, ect.) that, while the TV Series is good, is widely considered and hailed as a dark masterpiece.

However, with that said, while the remake would be a perfect 5 stars this show IS STILL (Probably for most) a 3.5 star show, but it's different for everybody. I actually know a few people that enjoyed it MORE then the remake because of how dark Hellsing:Ultimate is. (Also because the two shows go in relatively different directions.

I came across the original Hellsing on late-night cable a number of years ago. I couldn't stop watching, and I am NOT a fan of anime. I do love 'supernatural' things like vampires, zombies, etc, so this was interesting and a lot cooler than I ever thought anime could be. It led me to other things like "Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne", and I have been into anime ever since!

I'm surprised that the most critical reviews are from 'fanboys' who sound like my old girlfriend who dragged me to the f*****g Harry Potter movies, and then complained about things like, "In the book the tree is over there, they put the tree in the wrong place!" OMG, WHO CARES!

Anyway, please ignore the hyper-critical reviews, this series is so very cool. If you have any interest in vampires (not the girly EMO kind) then you really need to check this out. After this go to 'Hellsing Ultimate' and you will enjoy it that much more. And for those who are new to Hellsing here is a tip: The main character is named Alucard, which is Dracula backwards. You might call this a 'reinvention' of Dracula, but it has absolutely nothing to do with Bram Stoker's character OR story.

In short, 5 starts, watch this. Period.

For those of us who are familiar with the various incarnations of "Hellsing" (this, the OVA, the manga, etc), this may seem too tame to really fit with the franchise. However, if you're new to the material, this is actually a really good starting point. It is milder than the OVA, true, but for someone just getting started into the series, it's perfect. It's also a good purchase for those of us who remember seeing it back in the early 2000s when the series first hit the US with these episodes.
The product is well packaged and contains all 13 episodes from the Funimation release. And honestly, for a "classic" anime, $18 isn't too much to ask. It's worth it to get into the series for the first time, with little commitment if you're not happy with what you see. The OVA standard price is over $50, which is a little steep if you're not sure you'll like it.
As for the actual content, I'm sure you could probably find much better descriptions of the series and the individual episodes than I could possibly give you here. This particular part of the franchise WAS designed to be an introduction into the mythos that is Hellsing. It is not designed to be a compendium, it is not designed to be the complete story, and it's true what others have said, it diverges from the "true" story quite a bit. But it's still a good anime, and still worth what Amazon has listed for the price.

Great anime if you can stand how low it's production value was. It's characters are great and has a good selection of dubbed voice actors, but it falls flat in the animation department, not to say it makes the show any worse, but after watching more modern anime the lack of movement in the series becomes very obvious. I would still recommend it wholeheartedly and love it myself.

Well, I have read most popular bad reviews and good reviews.
If you are a Hellsing fan, you have to at least buy it out of sheer curiosity. Here's some points of my own:

1. Pay attention to the year it was made. The 2000's were the years of "lazy anime", especially when it came to TV series. Because it was TV series, it had to be quick, cheap and easy. And there goes the quality of drawing.

2. Pay attention to the year it was made. The manga wasn't even half the way finished yet at that time. That means two things. First of all, the creators had to improvise with the plot. Secondly, the creators had to improvise with the drawing of that plot.
Now, as far as the plot goes, I was really confused with the most popular positive review here, which said that roughly 50% of the show doesn't follow the manga. Well, it's actually more than that, in my opinion. I thought that what the person meant to say was that the show follows the manga until the point where there was no more manga to base the show on. That is NOT the case. Don't be confused like I was. The show has completely different plot but uses bits and pieces of the manga, including the dialogues. Two examples of this could be Jan and Luke's attack on the mansion. The manga has it, of course, but in the there, Luke and Jan acted on directions from Millennium, and the ghouls had been prepared for them. In the show, they launched an attack because the decided to do that, and they had to prepare the ghouls themselves. That completely eliminates Millennium from the plot. The other example could be Alucard saying to Anderson, "So, what does it make you? A man, a dog, a monster?" - basically the same thing that he said to the SWAT officer in the manga (and OVA 3).

This vs Hellsing Ultimate
Ultimate follows the manga where the Classic series goes off on its own little tangent. Both are good but Ultimate is ultimatly better in my opinion, and once you get off this page youll see that pretty much everyone likes it more (people on this page are super defensive.)
