Hellsing is one of those classic anime that was adapted from a manga that was more like an advertisement for the manga. The series was good in and of itself, dont' get me wrong, but it's clear that, by the time it ended, they were hammering for you to go read the manga quite a bit. Now this isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as the anime is good on it's own, and it is. Not great, but good. Furthermore, several studios got together later and did a reanimation of the series, which is much better. However, I still think this is worth a watch, and if you plan on watching both, watch this one first.
The story is very simple and enjoyable, but isn't fleshed out quite as well as it should have been. It seemed like they were just jumping around between plot points, and didn't spend enough time to properly flesh out and fully establish any of them. However, I'm fine with that personally because, as I said before, the original anime series was supposed to advertise the manga anyways, and also the series was still very enjoyable from start to finish; however, this is still something worth criticizing. At the very least I got the basic concepts about Vampires, Alucard, Ghouls, and the Hellsing Organization, but it was way too short for it's own good. I consider Hellsing Ultimate to be the greatest vampire story ever told, so I'd have to say Hellsing seems like a prototype to that, story wise, which, for the third time, was probably the intent.
Art & Animation
As someone who watches mostly modern anime, it's rather difficult for me to watch older anime, primarily because of the visuals. The visuals in Hellsing, despite being released in the very early 2000's, the art reminds me of a 90's anime; this tells me that it was probably released in that period when the art of 90's anime was still changing, and thus anime with that art style were still released. Therefore, it looks very dated. It was difficult for me, but I eventually got over that and enjoyed the anime very much. If you're a person who can't get over that, then avoid it. However, hopefully you can overlook the dated visuals, I think you'll find something very enjoyable underneath the surface. The animation is also slightly dated, but is very good for it's time. I think both the animation and art are very good for the time the series was released in.
The sound is the worst part of this anime. The music isn't necessarily bad in general, but it feels so out of place. None of the tracks in the series fit the scenes they were put it, and it was a massively off putting for me.
The characters, like the story, are just above average. Alucard is obviously the best aspect about the anime. Those who take nothing else away from Hellsing, always love Alucard's role in the series. He's such a badass, such as cool character, and is always fun to watch. Unfortunately, he's not that deep of a character. In fact, none of the characters in Hellsing are more than 1 or 2 dimensional, and are very uninteresting.
I enjoyed Hellsing very much, but it's not for everyone. If you enjoy mindless fun, then this might be for you; however, if you don't, then you may want to avoid this and skip straight to Hellsing Ultimate.
Overall, critically Hellsing is only a tiny bit above average. It's a lot of fun, but there isn't much too it other than that. Like I've repeated multiple times in this review, this was clearly made to advertise the manga, and as an advertisement, that's actually it's biggest strength; if Hellsing Ultimate wasn't out, I definitely would want to go read the manga after watching this, as it gave me enough interest in the characters, the story, and the world to want to get more out of it later, which I did with the reboot. If you can watch both watch this one first, but if you can only watch one then skip this and just watch Hellsing Ultimate, (unless you are absolutely in love with mindless-fun anime). read more
My friends... it has often been said that I like war. My friends, I like-wait, what do you mean the Major isn't in Hellsing? Oh wait, this is the 2001 version that doesn't follow the manga. You know, I'm not a huge fan of Hellsing 2001. It's not because I think that Hellsing 2001 is bad, but rather it's just so painfully mediocre (even for its time). Yes, Hellsing 2001 has a certain charm to it but it has NOT aged well at all and in comparison to Hellsing Ultimate, you'd have to be a madman to even want to consider giving this a shot.
Let's start off with the basics: Hellsing 2001 came out when the Hellsing manga was still in relative infancy. As a result, there wasn't a lot of story that could be adapted so Gonzo just decided to wing it and come up with a completely new story. The only problem? This adaptation of Hellsing was produced by Gonzo, a studio whose works tend to leave a sour taste in my mouth half the time. For the record, I don't really mind if a series branches off from its source material and in some cases, I'd quite enjoy it (ref: FMA 2003, Kuroshitsuji). However, Gonzo doesn't really have the sort of "talent" that Bones or even A-1 Pictures has when it comes down to writing up an original story. For one thing, we don't have Montana Max aka The Major as our main villain anymore.
The main villain of Hellsing is Incognito, a guy that I really just don't know how to feel about since I had no idea who the fuck he was. All I ever really got out of Incognito is the fact that he's working for a master and that's about it. Say what you will about Alois Trancy from Kuroshitsuji II or the Kakuzawas from Elfen Lied, but at least we had a good idea of who they are and what they were after, regardless of how much sense it made. But Incognito? Not so much as what kind of food he likes or what kind of women he goes after. Come on... Don't even get me started on how this show is 13 episodes long. A show like Hellsing needed double the length to even begin making sense.
Aside from Incognito, the character selection we have to put up with for Hellsing is pretty similar to the cast we have for Hellsing Ultimate (at least when it comes down to the Hellsing organisation). However, they all lack the charm that they had in the manga/Ultimate (with the exception of Alucard of course). For instance, while the story of Ultimate always focused on Seras to some degree in the manga/Ultimate, she wasn't the only focal point. Here, she's pretty much the only one we see a lot of and as much as I'd like to say that she's a badass gunslinging vampire girl... she just isn't here. She's pretty much just the fish out of water getting used to her new life and nothing more. The story puts far too much focus on her and not enough on other characters like Alucard or even Integra or Incognito even. After a while, it just gets annoying.
Moving away from story and characters, let's talk about Hellsing's production. Gonzo seriously has no sense of prioritising and it's quite obvious that Hellsing didn't really have much of a budget to work with from the start. How so? Well for one thing... the animation is almost non-existent in this show. There's almost no movement going on in the background and the action scenes are so few and far between. There's a distinct lack of any substantial blood/gore like in Berserk, which is rather irritating given that the manga and Ultimate are gratuitous gore festivals. However, I'm quite fond of the colour palette used for everything since it makes the entire show have have a rather uncanny feel. That sort of atmosphere fits well with a show like Hellsing which is partially horror-based. There are also some moments where the animation quality really picks up for certain scenes and it becomes rather fun to watch if only for an instant.
If this anime had to have a saving grace aside from Alucard, it would have to be a tie between the OST and the English dub. Hellsing's soundtrack has no shortage of jazz tracks, guitar tracks, and the like which all strangely fit the moment that they're being played in. If there's one thing that this show has over Ultimate, it's also the fact that it has a proper opening (and a damn good one). The song "Logos Naki World" by Yasushi Ishii is a rather catchy jazz/piano theme which pretty much coincides with how big of a badass Alucard is and if he didn't have one already, I'd imagine this song was his character theme.
In regard to the dub, Hellsing's dub was produced by Geneon Universal Entertainment and I have to say, this dub really makes the show 100x more watchable than it is subbed. What I really love about this dub is the fact that actual people of British descent like Steven Brand and Victoria Harwood were hired to do the voice acting for some of the characters. As for Alucard, he's voiced by the almighty Crispin Freeman: a man who definitely had a lot of fun while voicing this particular character. Like when you hear the inflections in his voice, that creepy but oh-so-delicious laugh, etc., you'd be more than likely to get sucked into his performance unless you viscerally hate dubs for whatever reason.
Is Hellsing 2001 worth watching? I'd usually say no to this one, but if you're completely new to Hellsing, I'd say yes. Why? For the sole reason that if you watch the 2001 show before watching Ultimate, you can properly appreciate just how much Madhouse spoiled Hellsing Ultimate in ways that Gonzo never did with the 2001 show. Other than that, I wouldn't really recommend it. read more
Alright, before someone yells at me, I have to say that at the time that I am doing this review, I have not seen Hellsing Ultimate. Well, I have seen only part of Hellsing Ultimate anyway. I have not finished that series off but in my belief up to now, I actually think this one is better in some ways then the little bit I have seen of the OVA. Put your pitchforks down please, let me at least have a chance to explain myself.
I believe that this one has a better story. Sure the other may follow the manga (of at this point I have only read one volume of it) and might have a lot of interesting info about the characters, but this one has a story that can hold its own. This one follows the character of Seras Victoria a bit more then any of the other characters and helps us learn about the world we have just been thrust into. When I first did my review on this show, I mistakenly called her just a basic person put in there for our sake but I have a little bit of a different opinion now. Her character is actually very well put together, showing the struggle between what she was and what she becomes. It is no secret that in the first episode, Seras becomes a vampire. She was just a young police girl who was sent in to take care of a vampire priest. She was given no info about the vampire and was even just a newbie in terms of being a police woman. Suddenly, she is kidnapped by a vampire, shot by another vampire, and then bitten and turned into a vampire herself with a blink of the eye. We see the struggle she faces with this fact, and the realization she has about her situation. She brings us into the story to learn of the Hellsing organization as well as the vampire rules in the world they live in. Without her, you would of just as easily thought that vampires would shimmer in the sun like Twilight maybe (Although there is one point where I wonder about the sun part).
There are two characters that you cannot talk about really without talking about them together. The interaction between Integra Hellsing and Alucard was one of my favorite parts about this show. There is not much info on both of their pasts, and yet we get more about Integra then Alucard. Integra had a hard time growing up which I think made her rather strong but also untrusting too many of those around her. I think there was only two that she seems to trust, and this doesn’t even include Alucard. I don’t think she trusts him at all to be exact, probably why she seems to tighten the leash with him so much. In return, I think Alucard has fun teasing her. He almost seems like he tries to tempt her with becoming a vampire herself. Weather it’s because of what her Grandfather did to lock him away, or because he actually has a thing for her, I don’t know. Watching a second time, you can sort of see a small bit of sadness in Alucard, but it is very light.
Although I try hard not to spoil ending and such, I do think I have to bring this up. I will try to stay away from spoiling it though. I do believe that the ending, while not like the books (From what I am told); it has a rather good ending. It wraps things up for the way the anime was going, while leaving enough mystery for you to want to know more. This sets up you reading the manga or watching the OVA which was a wise choice in my book.
The animation… well this is studio Gonzo so lets just say its half par. We can get some amazing still shots, very high detailed and beautiful but when it comes to the movement, it sometimes doesn’t pan out. The backgrounds become nothing more then speed lines and movement isn’t always as fluid as it should. Sometimes I wonder if it’s because Gonzo makes the still shots so amazing that they can’t draw line for line of the action. Most of Alucard’s outfit for example looks black because they hide it in shadows, only showing the highlighted portion as red. Much of this show is in shadows so they use a very large amount of black in every scene. I do believe they took the manga style and made it a moving work of animation amazingly well.
The English Dub is rather amazing. I know people get on my case for always reviewing the dub but this version of the voice acting is done really good. Crispin Freeman does a really amazing job in capturing Alucard’s rather cool and yet majestic voice. He has one of those voices that could make a girl swoon and just makes him that much more mysterious in a way. The other voices are alright, Integra’s voice has the overpowering strength that was really needed. She is played by Victoria Harwood who isn’t all that well known. Her voice acting resume has only a small handful of voices from what I saw on Wiki so she isn’t that well known but I really think she should be seen more as her voice was just perfect for this character. Some of the background characters do tend to have rather heavy handed accents that make it hard to listen to, but also some of the cussing was rather hard to understand as well. I can understand some of the characters they fight are punks, but does that mean they have to cus every other word? As for the music, the sweet jazz was just perfect to fit the mood, giving an interesting energy to the show. One of my favorite Opening songs is ‘Logos Naki World’ by Yosushi Ishii and one of my favorite Endings ‘Shine’ by Mr. Big are the opening and ending to this series.
This show was rather nice and for now, I do have to say that this is so far better then the OVA. If this feeling is the same after I finish Hellsing Ultimate, that will be then but the story here seems a bit fuller right now.
Hellsing is my favorite manga of all time. It combines a fun story, memorable characters, quirky humor, stylish art, and unrelenting gore and brutality all into one little paper back graphic novel.
So naturally, you'd think that the manga would make an awesome anime. Well, Chiaki J. Konaka and Umanosuke Iida thought so too and took it upon themselves to make an anime based off the popular series. In many ways, they succeeded. But they also failed...
The anime was released in 2001, long before the manga series would be complete. So they were forced to come up with their own story, completely unrelated to the manga (save for a few key plot points). This potentially is a pretty cool idea and allows room for originality, but the story in the anime is very hit and miss. There were times I was really enjoying the series and other times that I was flat out bored. I felt that the story just dragged and was often times pointless.
The story also lacks a key element that makes Hellsing so great, and that's the humor. This anime takes itself very seriously, but it loses heart doing so.
I've heard many times from fellow fans that the anime is just poor a fanfiction, and I can't say I disagree.
The animation is just plain ugly, even by TV anime standards. The characters are all poorly drawn, the colors are bland and ugly, and animation is smooth but suffers from choppiness. Visually, this is a lifeless anime. And that's all I can really say about it.
The soundtrack and voice acting is the anime's highlight. The soundtrack is nothing short of wonderful. The jazz tracks really set you in the mood for the series and I'd go as far as saying that the actual album is worth they buy. The voice acting was also very good. Crispin Freeman, K. T. Gray, Victoria Harwood, Steven Brand, Ralph Lister, and the rest of the cast did such an excellent job voicing their characters.
All the characters themselves were great, but the one character that truly stands out in the series is Seras. Her character is really fleshed out and you got to know her alot more then you did in the manga. Alucard was great, but he really becomes more of a prop in the background then anything else. The shows villain 'Incognito' was just... blah. He was kinda cool, but can't hold a candle to the manga's villain 'The Major'.
Overall, this is just simply an okay anime. Nothing rememberable or even exciting. It's not bad really, but it isn't great either. And to be perfectly blunt, this fails to live up to Kouta Hirano's vision. In recent years, they've rebooted the series with 'Hellsing Ultimate', an OVA series that is almost panel by panel like the manga's. I highly recommend you go see the OVA's, those did everything that the TV series couldn't.
If you consider yourself a Hellsing fan, then by all means go see this series. But if you're just entering the Hellsing universe, then I recommend you stay clear of this and go straight onto 'Hellsing Ultimate'. read more
In both series, the protagonist is a powerful person of demonic origin, dressed in red, who is nearly invincible, has superhuman abilities and two big handguns of different colors. He is employed by humans to fights other demons in exceptionally gory and stylish way on a daily basis. The animation style is also somewhat similar.
Both anime have wicked red-clothed protagonists who are some kind of demon fighting against their own kind for the sake of humans. Both anime involve a lot of bloodshed, tons of firepower and insane moves.
Its all about demons.. about super duper hero who kills in no time.. :D ;)
Both have incredibly lazy but superpowerful main characters. Both battle demons/vampires constantly. Both don't have a very well developed main plot, view more for entertainment than story.
Both main characters are fighting against demons or vampires. And both main characters are very silent, but strong and demon/vampire thereselve.
Alucard and Dante are very similar to each other. First at all they have big guns and great powers; they're also bored and want to find an equal opponent and perfect competition. If you like characters who get involved in crazy fights with monsters, these are a good choice.
About blood demons things Devil May Cry have more action in it but they as some same quality try it!
Both main characters aren't fully humans. Both Alucard and Dante work for people as vampires/demons exterminators and love to shoot. They spread fear and destruction by hand of their two pistols. Plot isn't too developed, both anime are rather bloody exchange of fire.
Se trata tambien de Vampiros! Para todos aquellos que disfrutar ver el poder que pueden tener los vampiros en los animes este Hellsing se los recomiendo!
Really Similar Stories, Short, Bloody and Violent, Cool Main Characters, Adult Language
The only major difference is Devil May Cry adds a little emotional touch after every Episode and Hellsing doesn't
Both anime are dark, both deal with the supernatural, in Hellsing theres vampires and in DMC theres demons.
In both anime protagonist are male demon, propably unvaliable to kill and it fights for mankind against it's own kind.
If you liked the bloody moments in hellsing you will like the bloody moments in Devil May Cry.These to animes have guns, blood and good outfits.
both of the main characters(Dante and Alucard)have some special abilities.They cannot be killed easily,like humans.they protect one girl.They are hunters,that kill vampires,ghosts etc.
They are both fighting monsters, the main characters are similar. They fight the monsters of their same kind and there is alot of blood and good action. Both use guns. They are both short too but they are both great.
In both the main character fights his own kind. There's alot of blood shed and supernatural things in both.
Dark action, monsters, super immortal protagonist
In both animes the main characters are wearing a red coat, both are very cool and are almost invincible... and they have guns
Who doesn't love supernatural horror? Especially when you add a distinctly badass anti-hero with a dark side.
If you are a fan of mindless fighting, thilling action and amazing graphics this is it for you. Adrenaline rush down to your bones.
Both series involve a main character with a mysterious past and they both have a tendency to use firearms to protect themselves and others. These series aren't for the weak-stomached however and you should be aware of this before watching either shows.
The protagonists of both stories are demon/vampire hunters . They are both badass looking :3
Both DmC and Hellsing have a red coat wearing badass, who uses two guns as weapons, as the main character. Both Dante(DmC) and Alucard(Hellsing) are employed by humans and embark on assignments to kill their own kind demons and vampire respectively.
Both also have good soundtracks, but Hellsing has a much better soundtrack when directly compared.
Both of them are also poor adaptations of their original source material.
Overpowerful and basically immortal main character, with supernatural fights
a lot of blood,demon hunters,powerful main characters,big guns.....demons really have to cry!
Vampires, priests and lots of fights. Fairly similar storylines, Vampire that kills Vampires. Oh irony.
They're both about vampires. Even though they contrast in art style, plots, and their view of vampires, it's generally all the same vampire fun.
Both Trinity Blood and Hellsing are good, strong vampire anime. Both the main characters go out and fight the creatures of the night, which gives them friends, but they have to destroy their foe's as well.
In short: If you like the one, you will like the other.
Both main characters are powerful vampires who hunt and kill other vampires. Plots are differnet but both are still similar regardless of that fact, and their both chalk full of vampirey goodness.
Both animes tell a Story about an religious organisation fighting vampires. The main character in both animes is a vampire himself
For all those Blood Lovers out there these two are key animes for anyone that is in to Vampires. Both also show that the race does not beget the actions of the individual.
I think Alcard and Father Able kinda sound a like. Cause Alcard is A demon and Father Able is a vampire/demon well he kinda looks that way to me. but also they kinda have the same thoughts Alcard hates vampires that feast off of humans and wants them all to die. And Father Able also hates the vampires who kill inccont humans so they kind of seem the same to me.
Trinity Blood, like Hellsing, has vampires, fanatical organizations, and a main character who has different stages of vampiric transformation and is virtually invincible. The two series are also similar in tone and story direction. Any fan of Hellsing would enjoy Trinity Blood.
Vampires! Doh~! Both anime's are about a organization that gets rid of vampires. The main character works for this organization and is a vampire himself, so to speak. Even though these main characters look very alike they are also very different. Their personality is not the same at all. Abel (Trinity Blood) is a kindhearted priest while Alucard (Hellsing) is more like this fierce vampire hunter, seeking a good fight. Alucard fights with ferocity and often extreme cruelty, rarely intending to kill until his target has been disabled and humiliated. But don't be fooled once Abel might be a kindhearted priest but once he gets into battle he becomes very serious! The other difference between those two is that Abel fights with some sort of creepy Scythe weapon and Alucard uses guns against his opponent. Also both the main characters meet a girl whom the become friends with somewhere in the beginning of the anime. Abel meets Esther and Alucard meets Victoria. The rest is the action, killing and blood flow.
They both are about vampires, very strong vamps. Both of the main vamps have a woman that sorta has control over them. Trinity blood is more funny and not so much blood, while Hellsing is full of blood and spilled guts.
Produced by Gonzo, both of these Anime involve Vampire, Action, and Supernatural type themes. The main characters are quite similar, as are the plots to each of these stories.
Vampire series that is classic in my estimation, both Hellsing and Trinity Blood have several similarities:
- both series features the theme of vampires involving violence, blood, and gore
- both series' main protagonist are somewhat similar with their attitude and skill
- both series has great soundtrack as well as action and drama
- both series main protagonist takes a young girl under their wings
- both series involves secret organizations and also religious themes
Both working for a company/associations that deals with dealing with creatures, but mainly vampires. The main characters are nearly impossible to beat when at full potential. Both anime are spot on the same.
Both are superhuman beings (Sebastian and Alucard) under contract to english nobility (Ciel and Integra). Even though the main aim of the two animes are different, (revenge vs elimination of vampires), they are almost cut from the same cloth! However, Hellsing tends to be darker and more bloody.
Character: Sebastian & Alucard - Akuma (monster) serving a master (ciel = sir hellsing)
Story: style & plot kinda different..but similiar monster genre..
Ciel's character is similar to Integra's one. They are both very strict, demanding and they will do everything to achieve the goal. What is more, they are perfect examples of "being master" attitude.
Alucard and Sebastian are similar because of their fighting abilities, hidden (not every time) dark side and good look ;)
Both anime ale pretty dark with a lot of blood and supernatural things included.
In both animes there's a evil creature (demon/vampire) who have to protect a human master. On the other hands their masters are so serious and never smile......almoust.
So if you like master-servent relationship (and england atmosphere) you will love both animes
In both there are demons, which serve humans. Sebastian looks like Alucard, especially when he is in his "fighting mode" and Ciel looks like Integra in her childhood. Phantomhive family serves the Queen and executes her orders, and Ciel is the young successor of this family. So it looks pretty similar to Hellsing, and even if they have different atmosphere, if you enjoy one you will like the other too.
Kuroshitsuji is like a less serious, less violent version of Hellsing. Both have to do with demons/vampires working for a human and serving them. They just both have the same sort of feel.
If you enjoyed the Integra/Alucard dynamic then the Ceil/Sebastian relationship will seem very familiar. They both enjoy a dark element (Hellsing having violent characters and Kuroshitsuji having twisted characters). Side characters provide much of the comic relief in both with Kuroshisuji enjoying much more comedy than Hellsing.
The biggest similarity is Alucard and Sebastian. They seem cut from nearly the same mold in terms of character. If you liked one you will for sure like the other. They both chain themselves to humans who clearly need them. They are both very manipulative (even manipulating their masters). And just as it starts to appear they might really have some soul in them they remind you they aren't human they are vampire/demon.
Liked Sebastian? Loved Sebastian? Hated Sebastian?
Your answer does not matter, you are gonna like to watch some Alucard action in Hellsing. He is the only person who can defeat a demon in a duel;).
PS:I don't recommend Hellsing Ultimate because althought it is more loyal to the original manga and has some marvellous animations, it includes too much second world war events and political issues, so it will be really confusing if you're new to Hellsing story. Go with the TV version for the time being.
Both animes have strong anti-heroes as main characters, who have a human master. Stacking genres: Action, Supernatural
1 they are both set in England
2 both families the Hellsing and Phantomhive both do the queens dirty work
3 both Ciel and Integra both have servant who are more than meets the eye
4 both Alucard and Sebastian do not have any qualms with killing people
5 they both have nice dark humor
Really if you enjoy one you will most likely enjoy the other
Kuroshitsuji and Hellsing have a some what similar storyline but totally different adjectives in the end. They both have a 'Master' and a 'Servant/Guardian'. But they both have dark humor. I dont know if youll like them both but i absolutely loved them :D
They both have a master-servant relationship. They also both involve the use of fantasy characters as the servant and a human as the master. They both take place in England and the master and servant protect England. In both the master got the servant while in a desperate time of need. Finally, the servant is a really strong, or in other words, a boss-ass bitch.
It has vampires and both the main character and Alucard look strangely alike. Black Blood, however, is more concerned with the nature of vampires, although it also has its share of awesome fight scenes. WATCH IT!
Though both are on vampires, the plot on Hellsing with its dark twists, draws you deeper into the suspenseful realm of vampirism.
Both series primarily feature vampires and Jirou's design is somewhat of a ripoff of Alucard's design in Hellsing. The difference between the two is that Black Blood Brothers focuses much more on the nature of vampires, but I found that the plot within Hellsing and the general action scenes of the series to be much more intriguing then that of Black Blood Brothers. In other words, if you like Black Blood Brothers you may like Hellsing a lot more.
It is quite possible, Black Blood Brother's took some bit of insperiation from Hellsing... or not. Both stories are about vampires, but they seperate the vampires into two classes, those in control of their blood lust, and who happen to live lives with humans, and those who happen to be zombie like, no control over their hunger, having become, unlike the others, like a viral infection.
Vampires hunting lowlife vampires with government aid.
Both series' main protagonists are vampire hunters despite being part of the race itself. The weapon of choice they use are also guns and they also dress similarly. (in red that is)
Both series contain a dark story that's mixed in with action and drama.
The animetion style of these 2 animes look really alike,
And in both we have a hero with a really big Gun ;)
Dark and from "Nightow-sama". Both about "unhuman" lifeforms too
both bloody anime... both good story with a main char using a gun :)
Both are about guns and fighting bad ass monsters. Gungrave got better and deep story whereas hellsing is way more kickass than gungrave in action...
Cause the protagonist are a badass
Another solid gungslinger anime that no one should do without.
If you love vampire anime, this won't disappoint you :)
Both are about a quest to destroy vampires, by using vampires
And they both have the same kind of dark feeling to it.
Vampires in modern age... done as such that oozes style.
Both are about powerful vampires cooperating with organizations that specialize in killing vampires. The main antagonists are also engaged in mass producing vampires and are part of powerful vampire organizations.
Both anime are about killing bloodsucking monsters (vampires) to keep the world safe from those evil creatures. Both anime got the regularly dose of action, violence and bloodshed. So if you like those vampire based action anime, I'd say watch this.
Both have vampires in them. Blood+ is not as gory as Hellsing, but they both have an interesting take on vampires, if your into that stuff

What if: A Hellsing Video Game
With all the lore and popularity surrounding the Hellsing series, it's not impossible for a video game to spring forth sooner or later. Let's take a look at the possibilities a Hellsing game could have, and what it could bring to fans and gamers around the world.
Hellsing: The Millennium Organization and the Thousand Year Reich
Adolf Hitler once predicted that the Nazi regime would last one thousand years. Fortunately, his prediction never came true. In the dark and cruel world of Hellsing, however, the Nazi's are getting a second shot and this time, they have the power of vampires on their side.
