Am i the only one that thought this was their first major c*ck up. I really enjoyed the series up to and, including 8. Was so pumped for 9. 8 ended on an awesome cliffhanger between Anderson and Alucard. was looking forward to an epic battle. then... first few mins Andersen is dead. gives some insight in to a past that wasn't really explored enough all to late. There was far to much of dialogue in preparation for action, then there was actual action.

Hellsing has always had a decent amount of unnecessary exposition before battles, but the pay off was always worth it , not here. i mean really, what actually mattered in this ep, only makes up about 15 mins of it. And now instead of Anderson, an awesome character that has a respectable rivalry, simple but passionate reason to fight, we get Walter. Who, and i will say was awesome when he was on the side of Integra. But i feel his reasoning for betrayal is so unimaginative, and as a villain doesn't compare to Anderson. The animation was nice, and it had a few good battle moments, but does not live up to the expectation, not even close when compared to its predecessors.

BTW Why did The Major appeared in Alucard's past, when he was about to get his head chopped?

Well, obviously it was a recall from a totally different time period, but the main reason is...


Your right and I agree with you, it makes perfect sense. Thanks for clearing that up.

Ahh so sweet, those first 15mins really sent chills down the spine. I just LOVE watching pathetic, ignorant religious f**king retards getting killed..

Individual inner strength is far superior.

Can't wait for the glorious final battle (^.^)

God, that was awesome!.....but now we have to wait to August for the last one....I think I might marathon them when the 10th comes out because I am sure I've forgotten a ton of characters and backstory which would probably make it a whole lot more enjoyable.

I've waited so long to see this part animated....And it was worth the wait.
5/5.
I love seeing this side of Walter (I'm not talking about his sexy appearance, indeed he looks amazing but that's just besides the point). To see him as someone who has worked so hard for just that moment, who has betrayed someone who, I believe, he even grew to love. He's even betrayed his own humanity for that hour/minutes. That's what I call dedication and I admire him for that.

Can't wait for X.

Remember this is practically a new team behind OVA 9 and 10 if not mistaken, that's why there's a chance they will do something different, let's hope they can pull it off with 120 or 90 mins and not very rushed with less time.

The writers never changed since the episode 1.

I won't be so sure. Original manga writer is always the same, but it looks like plot adapting guys working on storyboards, directing, OVA scripts etc. are really all over the place.

This OVA was well-put. Better than the previous one but not as good as OVA VІІ. The fights were quite epic ones nonetheless, and Walter was the most epic character in this OVA for sure. I feel kind of bad about Anderson, because he was my most favorite character, but I guess he was dead already in the previous OVA. Alucard got raped as a boy.. That’s really bad.
So we have to wait until the last OVA comes out to see the battle against that vampire punk which looks exactly like Seras? Blah.
The ED was great!

Young Walter is nowhere near as special as old Walter IMO.
Alucard summed up what I though when he said his old body was 'one trillion times more beautiful' then his new incarnation.
Being an aging, wise, charming yet slightly sinister, formal butler and dark horse in combat all added up to interesting character and 'hot grandad', something you don't see often, now, as a 'bitter young fighter', he's nothing special - not even same character.:(

Fuck yeah, that one was amazing. Completely worth the wait, unlike 8 where I was shocked over the average CG animation. This is what I was waiting for, but I'll hope I we won't have to wait that long til X..

Everything was perfect in this OVA. Wasn't Walter's Kid OVA the person that does Toshiro hitsuguaya from bleach lol? And the ED was freaking epic. I knew it was Maon Kurosaki when she first started singing. Woohhoho Final Episode next can't wait.

Umm what are you talking about. That did happen. When Walter came out and Yumie tried to kill him, she got killed by Walter, and then he tried to shoot Walter but that guy blew a hole through his face, and gave him bandages. It was around the 17 min 30 second mark.

He never said that scene didn't happen, only that it didn't disappoint (which I agree btw).

Good stuff, waiting for finale.

Tho, now I'm confused cuz of something I've heard in the subs, Girlycard saying "so I turned us both into boys"... Ummm... It might be the subs failing, but, in that form, is he male or actually female?

Nice Hellsing stuff although i expected a little more. The Anderson battle ended kind of fast after he got all immortal and shit. And the battle with the battler basically was Alucard getting his ass handed to him and still winning simply because his such a freak that is almost impossible to kill. Ok he used a nice little trick there at the end i have to admit.
Still despite a few pointers it was an enjoyable watch.

So Walter did all that staff so he can kill Alucard? Why so obsessed exactly?
Now i hope to see Seras kick ass in the last OVA and that the last will be a 90min one.

I was happy when i saw Alucard as a child in this episode, and i was unhappy when i saw, how his unlce or grandpa-shemale was doing with him..


Lol, someone really needs a few history lessons.

In theory there should be a more detailed explanation in The Dawn, but we'll only see it if they ever manage to complete The Dawn for good after all those years...

Bad.
Motive of Alucard-girl is stupid. I'm not sure but i feel like some of those stupid things weren't in manga like Anderson's vines or arab and kid Alucard scene.

Ah damn it, the long waiting between episodes must have gotten into me, this was still entertaining and interesting but somehow the awesomeness of this series just dropped a bit for me. Maybe I'm getting senile or something... LOL

Anyway I liked that Seras still thanked Walter for everything before she got on her way. Integra is cool as ever, shooting catboy Schrödinger in the head while he was welcoming them was classic and so much win in my book.

I hope I get my groove back or whatever before I watch the last episode next time. T_T

The major had some pretty good lines on this one.

Alucard's past is revealed. So he was a fighter for god, killing, burning and razing every town he saw, but he lost faith in god and he turned into a vampire. At'least thats how i interpreted it. One thing i love about Hellsing that it doesn't do what most japanese show's do: putting in akward exposition. I'm glad it wasn't thoroughly explained how it happened.

The finale of Alucard vs Anderson was once again done very well. And it was more detailed than in the manga-version so i could once again see what was happening. I almost teared a bit when Anderson kicked the bucket.

Loved Walters entrance. Aaw yeah, i'm a young rebel now. Yumie died, fingers crossed that the mangapages that had Yumie and Heinkel in them will be animated. And it was really nice how they did Yumie's sword attack.

I loved how things are timed differently than you imagined them to be. When Integra shot Schrödinger right after her last word i laughed out loud.

Alucard vs Walter. It was well animated. Just like the last 8 episodes. The part when Luke comes out of Baskerville's stomach was the best. Especially Alucard cocking his gun with his teeth. I wonder that did Walter make Luke throw the knife and shoot Alucard or did Luke do that on his own? I always thought that Walter controlled the dog itself through Luke.

The ending song was pretty ok J-rock about the female-characters of Hellsing. Not as good as the last episodes song, which still plays in my head. "Goes to download the OST"

Luke was basically Walter's puppet, so it's all Walter's doings.

Perhaps so. I started to wonder this because right after Alucard calls Luke an "undigested lump that couldn't even become shit," Luke throws his knife.

DAMN!!! I have already seen this OVA like 7 times and my second time writing about it... I think this one is on my top 3 of Ultimate. I keep repeating the fight between Alucard vs Walter, I love how Alucard participates in Walter's little show ("Shape and form have no meaning to me" epic quote) and Alucard's past, which was done so perfectly; the colors, story and music used... it's like one of the best moments I've seen in Ultimate so far. Seeing the things and experiences that Vlad went through, that trigger him to become the human he was in his days to the things that trigger him to become the kind of character we see in the story today... wow beyond words. In my opinion there isn't a greater vampire in fiction than Alucard (sorry Dio).

**** Does anyone know the name of the background song used when they are showing Alucard's past? been trying to find really hard for that track, probably is from an upcoming ost... because I haven't heard it in any Hellsing OST.

I'm sorry but MAL has to change the rules for anime such as this!

You should NOT be allowed to rate this anime lower than a 10!!!

What can I say that I haven't already said for the previous 8 episodes.

It's perfect, absolutely a masterpiece of an anime in all categories!

THAT WAS AMAZING.

This show NEVER disappoints me. Ever.

I'm going to have to say that this episode is probably tied for my fave episode in this series... excellent direction & the voice acting was stellar... .annnnd dat ANIMATION!

I had one question (as I have not read the manga, purposely so as not to spoil the ending for me), but why is Alucard "Girlycard" at the end?... why is he a girl? Does he just like taking different forms because "forms mean nothing to him"...?

That's my only confusion. Everything else was laid out pretty clearly.

SOOOO glad I waited for bluray subs.

Basically, in the manga that was mostly a homage to Hellsing: The Dawn, Alucard was like this for the whole time there and The Dawn manga had been around since forever (if I'm not mistaken, they've released the sixth chapter in November 2006, by that time we already had volume 7 and half of the 8-th one of the main story, the last Alucard vs. Anderson fight). So for the manga readers Girlycard's appearance in Hellsing was not a WTF moment, but mostly a nostalgia scene: Walter went young just like he was in 1944 and so did Alucard. It worked for the manga readers yet not for those only into OVA simply because of the release schedule of the latter, only two chapters of The Dawn has been animated by now and Alucard will only make his appearance in the third one, so it all went backwards here. Also there are occasional Girlycard shots in OVA1 and OVA4, you can spot them if you know what you are looking for.
On the other hand, the first Girlycard's appearance in The Dawn manga itself was a WTF moment at first =). Basically Alucard decided his form should sort well with young Walter's and approached this task with humor, also "forms mean nothing to him".

THANK YOU. It makes perfect sense... and it is truly bad-ass for him to use that form when he's about to kill Walter/Watch him die - it matches his (Walter's) current form and shows he's kinda paying "homage" to their time spend as "comrades." BITCHSLAP.

Ha.

this show = :D

Great episode, 5/5

So Turks raped Vlad and he turned into a vampire. That is why I am against child abuse.
