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.

In all seriousness, if you're looking for a great bloodbath in anime and can't get enough, this is the series/OVA for you. Volumes 1-4 help set the scene perfectly and Volumes 5-8 launch you right into the action. Volumes 9 & 10 are up there, mostly for the final confrontation and conclusion, but still worth every penny.
If you're unsure of whether or not you'll enjoy this, watch Hellsing Ultimate Abridged by TeamFourStar on YouTube. They did an amazing job of making the episodes funny without removing what the show offers. Don't get hung up if you think the language is too much, but do keep in mind that it is Rated TV-MA for a reason.
Like with most Funimation sets this one allows the buyer to have the series in both standard and blu-ray format which is again appreciated especially for the price.So for fans of vampire animes or gory ones or just those looking for an incredible anime series in general this one is a good choice to check out.With this we now have an almost complete set and now just await the third set to come out for fans to complete their collection.
Hellsing Ultimate: Volumes 5-8 is the epic and brutal battle between three factions; The Millennium Organization, an army of Nazi vampires led by a psychotic major driven to see London burn, the Iscariot Organization, the Vatican's selected army of catholic vampire slayers under the rule of a power-mad archbishop yearning to slaughter all sides, both guilty and innocent, and the Hellsing Organization, led By Integra Hellsing and commanding only a small band of mercenaries (after losing her army in the previous 4 episodes) charged to save London. But she still has two trump cards that may tip the scales of power; the vampires Seras Victoria and Alucard.
As with the previous set, episodes 5-8 are on DVD/Blu-ray with superb video and sound quality. It offers special features including English and Japanese dubbing (from the original English and Japanese Hellsing voice actors). The only down side is that it offers a brief episode called the Dawn, a prequel that shows a young Walter and Alucard fighting in WWII. It's in Japanese with English subtitles. I'm not certain if and when the full series will be coming out. Another downer is that there is a delay in the last two episodes. Not sure when they will be released but you are gonna be left hanging after episode 8.
When I said earlier that the battle for London is epic and brutal, that's not mere boasting from a fan. This is one of the most graphic battles I have ever seen in an anime. I won't drop any spoilers but I will give you a fair warning. The war on London, as well as the entire series, is extremely graphic and violent. If you're not too fond of gore, this won't be your cup of tea. If you are into this series or a fan of over-the-top violent animes, you're in for a treat.
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
