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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES! FInally! September 4, 2012
By Ryan165
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value For The Price September 4, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! However... November 4, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray November 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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.

Picture:

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.

Sound:

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.

Extras:

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!
Special Features: Episode Commentary, Dubbing Hellsing - The 10th year Anniversary Interviews, Hellsing Cast Round Table Discussion, Anime Vegas 2010 Hellsing Panel, Fans' Questions Answered, The Dawn: A Supplementary of Hellsing, Textless Closing Songs, U.S. Trailer, Previews.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's good for a cheap thrill March 4, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
This review is for the entirety of Hellsing Ultimate (all 10 episodes).
I had seen quite a few scenes from Hellsing Ultimate before I actually watched it, and I wasn't expecting much for story or emotion, but I was expecting a lot of action. There actually ended up being more story and emotion than I figured, and even though there's a couple scenes of characters displaying sorrow that seem drawn out and overacted, I still felt it added to the anime. But what I did not expect was the excessive amount of chibi.
The first half of Hellsing Ultimate isn't really all that great. The story plays out pretty standardly, no big plot twists, with the action amounting to nothing real special. But the big problem is that Hellsing Ultimate seemed to just keep trying to sabotage itself. It just absolutely REFUSED to allow you to feel something. Almost every time things were getting tense, whether it be from an emotional moment or a good action scene, it would kill the mood by either showcasing one of its MANY chibi moments, or someone would just keep rephrasing a line and repeat it over, and over, AND OVER. I don't know if they thought that was supposed to make what they were saying seem more important, but it didn't.
The second half of Hellsing Ultimate is where things get good. The story progresses nicely and turns out to not be as shallow as you were first lead to believe. The action gets ramped up, and we end up seeing a lot of good battles. And the biggest thing of all, Hellsing Ultimate actually allows there to be tension! The chibi moments get cut way back...although, there's still enough of it to annoy you.
As for the final episode, I can't just flat-out say that it's good or bad.

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
