Synopsis

Hellsing, a secret organization of the British government, have long been battling supernatural threats to keep the people safe from creatures of the night. The current leader, Integra Wingates Hellsing controls her own personal army to eliminate the undead beings, but even her highly trained soldiers pale in comparison to her most trusted vampire exterminator, a man by the name of Alucard, who is actually a powerful vampire himself. Along with Integra's mysterious butler and Alucard's new vampire minion, Seras Victoria, The Hellsing Organization must face not only regular ghouls and vampires, but a rivaling secret organization from the Vatican, and Millennium, an enigmatic group of madmen spawned by a certain war over 50 years ago...

A bloody battle between monsters is about to begin, The dead are dancing, and all hell is singing...

Includes a three chapter side-story, "Crossfire".

Hellsing was part of my introduction to anime and as such it is one of my favourite fandoms. But it has only kept its place there because of its unique way of capturing the reader with action that I can only describe as being kick arse.

There is a great plot to this manga, well thought out and very grand. Being an action manga there are quite a few pages which are full of just pictures, no words, but yet the plot still unfolds well and is not lost.

Hellsing throws you into a dark world where monsters and humans coexist and do battle. Think of Bram Stroker's "Dracula" meeting the James Bond series, with a modest touch of fantasy. If your a person who enjoys being succinctly entertained with fast paced action and dialogue, then this is the manga for you. From an American's outlook, I could see where the Japanese lines blended with western comic ideals. Many characters are presented from different, competing groups, trying to hold dominion over the others for various iconographic reasons(God, Country, Money, Power, Abilities). It just seemed much more up front than some mangas I've read read more

Well before I start I'd like to get one thing straight. I never liked vampires and I thought everyone who watched twilight and those other vampire show/ movies were simply out to lunch. Thats why when I was introduced to Hellsing I was a little bit concerned that I wouldn't find it enjoyable.

But boy was I wrong, this manga was top notch. The art style was very pleasing, and I enjoyed the really gory scenes which I thought were drawn out really well (although some were confusing at times).

The story Is about a vampire named Alucard who is a slave (not against his will) read more

Manga: Gantz
I dont know what people think of Hellsing and Gantz but to put them both in a nut shell. gore, more gore, and destruction. Hellsing is a Alucard killing off his own kind (vampire) and Gantz is a group of people killing aliens. Both have very detailed story lines. Gantz would be a little more gory because there is more fighting involve but Hellsing is a great way to laugh (depends on how you like gore).

Manga: Jack Frost
jack frost is almost identical to hellsing with one small detail jack frost has a bit more ecchi in it characters are amazingly identical its like taking alucard seras and integra and adding slightly perverted to there list of characteristics 
reportRecommended by sesgel
Manga: Priest
Both featured a badass lead character who sport some impressive firepower. The main characters rich pasts are examined in depth t give a better understand of what motivates them in the present. In both works there is a heavy focus on religion and blood splatter. 
reportRecommended by 1eyedjoker
Manga: D.Gray-man
They both fight evil demons, both sometimes have a lot of blood, and D. Gray-man reminds me of Hellsing. Also, both have a vampire who is a hero. (D. Gray-man a little later on) 
reportRecommended by Slyphoria
Manga: Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
The final antagonist's eyes remind me of Alucards 
reportRecommended by Megan140
Manga: Dorohedoro
Similar partnerships with Victoria, Alucard and Nikaido, Kaiman. Both present very violent and gruesome battles and engagements. While both manga have supernatural aspects, Dorohedoro is more of a post-punk sort of setting, opposed to hellsing's more or less realistic approach.
