Starting his career first as a mangaka's assistant (self-described as "horrible" and "lazy" in said assistant position), and later an H manga artist, he went on to enjoy somewhat limited success with other relatively unknown manga titles such as Angel Dust, Coyote, Gun Mania and Hi-Tension. His first major success came with his manga series Hellsing, which got its start and was subsequently serialized in a monthly manga magazine, Young King OURs, towards the latter half of 1997.

Hellsing Soundtrack: What Cool Sounds Like

Hellsing Soundtrack: What Cool Sounds Like

Super Science. Zombies. Long coats. Wide brimmed hats. Sunglasses at night. Assassin priests. Nazi Vampires. Hellsing is a boiling blood filled cauldron of awesome that runs on the rule of cool. With a show this fantastic, they needed a soundtrack to match. Did they succeed? Of course they did.

Hellsing's plot is pure schlock but damn, I was highly entertained by it.

Awful, cringey and nonsensical writing.
Art is kinda edgy, but not terrible.
