What an awesome episode ... was it worth the two-year wait? I think so! I just hope it's not 2013 till the next one comes out. Anderson was fucking BEAST! He used a Nail off of the Cross in order to turn into some kinda super-monster, which he was already superhuman to begin with. Then they end it in a crazy cliffhanger, Anderson apparently killing Alucard (though you know it's not going down like that). I'm very fond of Anderson so it's a little painful seeing him fight Alucard, no matter how badass both of them are, because I know he won't be able to pull out a victory in Alucard's anime.

This episode was mostly Alucard spamming his 'true form', a huge wave of all the souls he's devoured in his hundreds of years of undeath ... pretty badass and terrifying at that. I liked that he turned back into his Vlad the Impaler appearance at first, but missed if there was any explanation for why he suddenly switched back to his modern outfit.

5/5 ... I hope they're working on the next one already.

EDIT: Thanks for the info Klimat, I hope that's the case and it doesn't get pushed back even further. Still, 5-8 months for another episode is so long to wait X_x

Am I the only one actually disappointed with this episode?

Everything else besides Alucards entrance was mediocre. I love this show, I really do, when I heard ep8 is finally coming out I was out of my mind. Now, I just feel kinda sad to be honest.
CG wasn't on par with previous episodes, even Alucards epic smirk was somewhat lacking. Dunno, maybe I set my expectations too high. Whole battle with Anderson was also disappointing, no suspense whatsoever.

After almost 2 years I expected more, especially having recently rewatched all 7 previous episodes. Seras had way better episode with way better fighting. I won't even go into episode where Alucard fought the girl with the gun aboard that ship. This was nowhere near that level.

This wasn't bad episode, but it also wasn't as good as other HU episodes.

Oh well, waiting for next episode it is...

It took a year and a half for this episode, So i imagine it will be at least another year for the next.

It just did on mine. Though I had to install MPC because my usual ZoomPlayer+CCCP combo couldn't play it because of the Hi10p.
I liked it. Especially the Seras meets Alucard part. Master.... Hige? Though there should've been some more dialog there :(.

And i don't think the CG was lacking.

just saw it subbed. cg was a bit over done and there was still some camp but so glad they kept it to a minimum, still plenty bad-ass though. defiantly worth the wait. Anderson/ Alucard battle was as epic as it should have been. Now the wait starts again for 9.

Really liked the awesomeness of the Blue-ray Quality Fighting scenes and Alcurds full power. ^^
Vic Seras have a really cool arm, wonder how (badass) It would look if she's using it :P

The OVA was good but I don,t like the change in studio. It took to long to continue that destroyed the continuity for me since i watched the first 7 in a single week.

Studio change has nothing to do with the delay.

awesome episode~~~~~

to be honest i expected more from 1.5 years of break but i'm contend with this one. it's really good..

What i really like is it stars all my favourite characters in the series: Alucard vs Alexander Anderson. (and of coz a little of victoria sweetens the episode!)
For some reason i actually like Alexander Anderson more than Alucard...i get really pumped up when he does his trademark "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAmen"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alucard is cool too with his chant which reminds me of unlimited blade works lol!

Apart from the likings, areas that i'd like to see would be the relationship between Alexander Anderson, Maxwell and his sword-wielding + gun-firing Iscariot kids.





"I also wanted to pet Seras :(" +1

the above pretty sums up my thoughts for this episode, i'd say 8.5/10

now i can't wait for episode 9 already...

Hell yeah, finally seen this one!

Oh crap Anderson just leveled himself up into a total monster to fight another monster. >_< The meet and greet of Integra and Alucard on the open was simple enough but I had goosebumps when they talked face to face. Enrico Maxwell's holy crusade has got to be the shortest Vatican-sanctioned crusade ever. XD Anyway, I liked the imagery of Anderson and the kids at the ED.

I don't read the manga so I don't know what happened to the guy wearing a cap representing Millennium on the three way face off with Anderson and Alucard. Should I assume he's still going to make an appearance on the subsequent episodes seeing he didn't do anything on this one.

I have savored every moment of the entire episode to appease my anxiety's worth several months of waiting and then to endure several more months waiting for episode 9. X-(

Nothing has changed and the quality is still clearly visible in the last OVA...Loved the rampage Andeson went through and it was a lovely moment to see Vlad, Seras and Integra "together"

Animation was good as always, a good delivery of course...Can't wait for the continuation of Anderson and Alucard's fight and perhaps to see a bit of Seras vs Hans, we will see...

And the DAWN is pretty good too, even though I don't like Walter's voice that much (Love Paku Romi but I don't think her voice fits him that much)

I hope Madhouse or somebody else will do them. Like Saber said CG was really bad in this episode. I don't remember any CG in previous OVAs, everything was fine until now.
At least the fight was quite satisfying.

But they are all full of CGs and always were. Alucard's guns, lots of cars and helicopters, Crusaders in OVA6, zeppelins etc, etc.
I think I can only complain about Alucard's army in one certain scene (when Anderson stands in front of those familiars ordering his subordinates to retreat right after Maxwell's death), otherwise the River of Death was fine. And I really think 3D Nazis and Crusaders were awesome.

Then maybe you should wait for the better quality video and try to re-watch it. And the only thing i think was off in this OVA was a facial expression of Alucard (a few moments). It was somehow different from previous OVA's.

Quality of the episode and crappy CG (yeah, I meant the army) are two different things.

hmm I think the CG was ok... they overdid it at times, but what really bugged me was Integra and Anderson design. It was a little off for me but the rest was very tolerable.
Hopefully we will see the next two OVA soon, having to re-watch everything every time a new one is release is kinda time consuming T_T
huh?

I think when you go into anything with little or no expectations, you can wind up very, very, very enthused; hardcore fans and critics have something to complain about here, and I respect that.
But I was just along for the ride.
And I loved every second of it. I just marathon'd 5, 6, 7, and 8, and I'm very impressed.
But then again, I suppose I'm just impressed by the depth of the storyline and how it's transformed so much beyond what I expected. So OVA critics who read the manga... I understand.
But for me it's going to be a 5/5. I loved it both visually and thematically.

Oh my god, they used the old OST in the credits! <333 That thrilled me, I have no idea why they didn't use the music from the original series in this one since it was so amazing, but hearing at least that one song made my night.

Though there were some animation inconsistencies and oddities, overall I was having way too much fun watching this to be bothered by them. Finally seeing this chapter animated was amazing, and I can easily overlook the few scenes with some artistic flaws. Alucard shone where he needed to, and oh man...that Dracula form. *drools*

Watched this a while ago...

I have to say, it has been a while since I felt this excited. I absolutely loved this episode and I felt chills down my spine when watching this. Norio Wakamoto's voice made me lol at one part though.

CG didn't bother me on my first time watching, but it did kind of bother me when rewatching. Only a little minus though, even when considering the time it took for this episode to come out.

Am I the only one that was disappointed by the soundtrack for this episode? Everything was pretty awesome I thought, although I'm fairly sure the art changed - call me crazy IDC- and the animation was nice and fluid as expected.

However, the music was not as rewarding as was with earlier episodes. There weren't any special tracks like the catchy Akuma Stocking, Broken English, and the even more awesome port Das Engellandlied from whatever old German war-time wayback they found it from.
And really the ending was just a music-port of the original (if that sounds right) Hellsing Anime. It is a great piece, but really? I know that with their incredible break of time they could've chalked up at LEAST one new music beat, and put it [almost] ANYWHERE and it would've been nicer to hear.
I tell you now the words of the red moon; The wolf was born from the Great Spirit, and man became the messenger of the beast. He lives his life in silence, where the blessing of the blood of the gods is bestowed upon him.
The flower wins the favor of the lord of the night, and she gives off her scent. Firm and eternal in countenance, her form is as a lily-white, supple maiden. She stills and condenses time until all is a precious, frozen mass.
It is then that the beast shall appear...

I'm not an hardcore fan, but this was totally worth the wait. I just finished watching and I'm still a little numb. The CG may have been a bit over the top, but overall it was an awesome OVA. Seras appearance was incredible and the Dracula form stole it all. It could have had more Integra and less ridiculous Wakamoto screaming around though, that's just my personal taste.

Yea Alucard definitely looks different. I rewatched the first 7 OVAs and then watched the 8th OVA and noticed a different. Alucard also seems like he isn't himself too.

Well, if you are talking about his Vlad form, it's supposed to be different since Alucard looks older (on his late forties) in this shape. On the other hand, his red coat form still looked the same for me. Also Hirano was drawing Hellsing for 11 years and his art was improving and changing all this time, I bet you won't recognize his Hellsing Volume 1 Alucard if I show him to you. OVA team did a descent job reducing Hirano's designs to a common denominator to give the characters a stable look through the story were it is needed, but still there may be some minor differences here and there for some Ultimate scenes are really colored moving replicas from the manga.

You guys disappoint me. No mention of the awesome OST from the TV series showing up on the ED? Like, really, the only high point of the TV series was the soundtrack and seeing it being used in the end make me smirk with glee.

As for the episode itself.. man. Got no words for this except.. when do I get to see more? Good god, I was smiling from ear to ear watching the whole damn thing.

Alucard has got to be the most insanely demoniac and freakish character ever to be presented in any form of animated medium. Still all the while remaining with this sense of respect and even sympathy for another being. I'm not religious, but Jesus Christ! This episode was something else. Very well-done.

For the first time in Hellsing Ultimate I feel the latest episode didn't surpass the previous one (episode 7 was on a completely different level than anything else). Not to mention Seras became my favorite character in the series. Still, this episode delivered in every aspect, and can very well rank among the best for the fantastic character interactions between Anderson and Alucard in the most creepy war scenario I have seen.

Watching this episode is like watching a conflict between monsters reaching its pick in plain Hell.

Epic...simply epic. I had fangasms all through this episode. Hell I was so amazed the dodgy CG didn't bother me. The Dracula form of Alucard was badass, and I loved the whole Alucard vs Anderson fight. Can't wait for the final two episodes.

The CG was ok. It's always a little strange to see CG in an anime. The Major's symphony was a bit low-budget but everything after that was again the same quality animation as usual.

I know i have complained that this adaptation is usually directly from page to video, but this time i gongratulate the show for it. I remember these chapters to be so full of everything it was hard to get a clear picture of it without reading it again. Now we can clearly see whats happening.

Action was good, VA's did a good job and a big plus for the ending song which was actually pretty good and reminded me of the original show.
