Product Description

Remember when vampires had fangs? Remember when they were known as terrifying monsters that stalked the night, instead of moody teenagers that sparkle in daylight? It's time to drive a stake through the lovesick heart of contemporary vampire nonsense. Satisfy your bloodlust with Hellsing Ultimate, the definitive action-horror anime. The rogue vampire Alucard is the Hellsing Organization's deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi 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 _Eand tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.

The details of the disc's as follows:

The second half of Hellsing Ultimate is even darker and more violent than the previous episodes. Nazi vampires attack London, absurdly arriving in overscaled zeppelins. Taking advantage of the carnage, Archbishop Maxwell and the Troops of the Vatican's Iscariot Organization, whose equipment includes "30 pieces of silver and a rope," charge into the fray with the aim of winning England back to Catholicism. Sir Integra Hellsing remains calm, despite the bombs, bullets, and rivers of blood: her super-vampire servants Sera Victoria and Arucard are on hand to settle everyone's hash. The last three hours of Hellsing Ultimate may have a record body count for an anime series. Characters are beheaded, dismembered, and mutilated; bullets, swords, scythes, and knives tear through bodies. How all this mayhem constitutes a coherent story is anyone's guess, and the filmmakers muddle things further with flashbacks, illusions, dream sequences, and bits of incongruously cartoony animation. Three hours after the Nazi invasion began, Hellsing Ultimate simply stops, with nothing resolved and the strands of the plot flying in all directions, like the tatters of Arucard's coat. Technically, the series is as messy as its narrative, with weird disjunctures between the drawn and CG figures. The filmmakers seem to have set out to offend as many viewers as possible, and with the many references to the Waffen SS, the Reconquista, Judas Iscariot, et al., they'll probably succeed. It's not clear why Funimation chose to spread four episodes over three DVDS, when the material would have fit easily on two, or even one. The set comes with a box designed to hold both halves of the series. (Rated TV MA, appropriate for 18 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, sadism, rape, gore, grotesque imagery, tobacco use, extensive profanity, offensive religious imagery, Nazi imagery, ethnic slurs) --Charles Solomon

I have been waiting for this for 3 years!! Hellsing Ultimate is by far my favorite anime series ever. The action, story, and characters are just amazing! The subs are good, but this is the best cast of voice actors I have seen overall. Crispin Freeman as Alucard just can not be beat if you ask me. His voice is freaking perfect for him. The others are also amazing. These episodes are when the action just gets beyond intense. A triangle of combat between Hellsing, Millenium, and the Iscariot is just incredible. If you like vampires or action anime check the other episodes out right now! You will be happy you did it. Trust me.

Finally after all these years Hellsing is back on the U.S. market! For those who are coming new to the series, the U.S. branch of Genon went under a few years ago, and they stopped dubbing all of their projects. This pissed a lot of fans off because Hellsing is one of those really memorable dubs where the voice actors really it their parts, especially Crispin Freeman as Alucard, in fact I would go so far as to say Hellsing is the best English dub out there. Anyway Hellsing is back now with most of the original voice actors, now being dubbed by Funimation. This set comes out to about 11$ per movie, and you get the Blu-Ray and the DVD versions in one, great value. The Blu-Ray's are great quality, and the sound quality is crystal clear, it's been a long wait, but it was worth it!

Also it comes with a little cardboard insert so that if you decide to buy the I-IV set, it will slide right into the same box that this set comes with, very nice touch.

After waiting for a grueling four years, Hellsing fans finally receive ova's five through eight on blu-ray. Volumes nine through ten will no doubt come out in the third or fourth quarter of 2013. The dub compared to the Japanese audio is very well done but at some points the actors could have tried being louder. I have only two complaints about this blu-ray release. The first is that Hellsing the Dawn episode one is not dubbed. It is only in Japanese with english subtitles. Are you telling me Taliesin Jaffe who is the voice director couldn't find the time to dub the Dawn? That was a disappointment for me.

My last complaint was that Taliesin made the awful and rather, dumb decision to dual voice the characters Alucard, Zorin, and Seras on certain scenes. In the first four ova's the characters did not sound like that so why change them? In disc two in an interview, he stated that he wanted the characters to sound everywhere and not just in one spot. There is no option to remove the dual voices unfortunately in the menu. Complain to Taliesin and to Geneon. Whoever is in charge and have them redo the blu-rays.

Those two complaints alone were the only reason I won't be giving this five stars. Taliesin what the hell were you thinking?

This review is of the Blu-ray and yes I own it! I got this at Youmacon in Detroit MI two weeks before it is officially released by Funimation.


If you didn't know the reason why this has been taking SO long to come out is because the animation for the project has been bouncing studios. Episodes 1-4 is from one studio and episode 5-8 is from another and 9-10 is the same studio that did the original Hellsing anime. What does that mean? Well it means that it has taken a lot longer for the whole anime to come out and the animation style is different from each block of episodes. The Blu-ray version of this fixes this problem as they touched up the anime to make it consistent though the whole 1-10 episodes. They also add in more detail. The blu-ray version is essentially a remastering of the anime, and it looks great! If you own the DVDs you will notice the difference and it's for the better. Picture quality is just stunning.


Crank up your sound systems because your in for a treat!! Every blood splatter is heard with great gruesome detail! It's 5.1 and it sounds great. You will love the sound of this collection.


Surprisingly more than most anime DVD's! I am just going to copy and past the extra's being I have not watched them at this time, so I can not tell you if they are worth it. I can say it's more than the clean opening and clean ending and promo's. So that is a plus already!

Same as before: One of the most joyfully honest and stylish anime series you’ll ever encounter. The plot is above average, with a few twists here and there, nothing too major. But the execution is just off the charts, an example of style making the most out of substance. I personally prefer the subs over dubs, but the dubs are still great.
Now seriously, where are the rest of the episodes? I hope they get brought over soon.

I have both Hellsing and this as well, This is a series I truly love Hellsing Ultimate is far darker gorier and bloody then Hellsing but boy is it one hell of a watch, Alucard has been kept in character no major changes like some series do to their main character and sometimes it is more of a detriment then a benefit. This was beautifully done and contains some adult content

You will see another side of Walter you'd never expect it is a shocker I did not see that coming and quite enjoyed it as well. Integra has to deal with even creepier creatures then she did in the original series, betrayal, abandonment. This series has more twists and turns then a curvy road, killer plot twists only add to it

Item Under Review, why?
BS, for sure.
I ordered one from ImportCDs, but the delivery was so long that I actually ordered another set from Amazon once it became available - and got it in two days. Had to return the first one when it arrived, thought. But now it went under review again on Amazon. Sorry for those who're... Read More

For anyone who has this same question, it is not one of those boxes. It contains BR and DVD versions, but there is not room for the other Hellsing Ultimate volumes. I'm not sure why Funimation decided to make the packaging for these volumes different, but I guess it looks cooler than the other... Read More

It has to be ready within this year. I hope they will get the entire actor cast without substitutions. I honestly don't really like the original Japanese voicing. Crispin Freeman is awesome as Alucard. And I cannot stand Japanese voice-actors for Seras and Integra. Somehow their voices don't seem... Read More
