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 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.

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 read more

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 read more

Anime: Devil May Cry
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.

Anime: Trinity Blood
Vampires, priests and lots of fights. Fairly similar storylines, Vampire that kills Vampires. Oh irony.

Anime: Kuroshitsuji
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.

Anime: Black Blood Brothers
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!
