Why this is being treated as a stand alone item is anyone's guess, but okay, here ya go:

In this 3 minute trailer, which was available as a special on the DVD release, we get a rapid-fire, loud, and virtually seizure inducing promo for "Hellsing: Ultimate". Starts off kind of creepy, with a phone ringing, answered by Alucard who is then told by Integra to search and destroy (VERY loudly) and we get treated to a break-neck speed montage of guns, splatter, those patented wicked grins, Alexander Anderson laughing maniacally in a warped pose, and finally coming to an end with a mysterious dark figure sitting read more

Hellsing: Psalm of Darkness is a promotional video for Hellsing, the original series.
Which works quite fine as a trailer and it quite lovely to watch as an hellsing fan, I feel like watching Hellsing again :3

But when that is said it is in fact not a real trailer for the Hellsing, the original series, because you will get to see things which are only in the Hellsing Ultimate version, therefore this trailer shows that while the developers where making the first adaption that they changed in path later in the development.

The art is good but it is only as good or maybe a little bit read more

This is a trailer to the t.v. show hellsing. Not an anime per-say. Yes, it does have footage(nothing worth saving) that does not show in the actual show. which can make it as a bonus (special) but that would make all trailers a bonus. That seems to be a waste of space.

anyways the trailer makes it clear that blood will be a daily event. Another thing made clear is they will stretch the truth on what can and can't be done. Don't expect them to abide to the rules in other words.

Yes, the trailer did show what the artwork read more

To think I told myself so many times that I've reviewed enough weird abominations that dare call themselves Anime to be able to call off the bullshit on spot feels very naive from old me. But then again, I can never predict what I'll watch in the next 5 minutes, but for now, I'm having this as the downfall of it all.
It felt rather like those old ambitious but crappy AMV from the old youtube poop background, with no matching music or purpose but to transition from random shots of the series, be them relevant or not, they looked badass, so why not?
