    Ultimate vampire story

    Genres: Horror, Supernatural, Action, Gore, Comedy Ultimate is my first introduction to the series and after reading a couple reviews I hurred and snatched the last copy from a close Best Buy. If you faint easily at the sight of blood or can't stand cursing, this isn't the series for you. That being said, this series is good enough that I immediately pre-ordered the 2nd set after finishing this one. Hellsing Ultimate is about the Hellsing family, the N.A.Z.I.S. (banned word for some reason#, and the Vatican's forces. Essentially, the Hellsing family of England employs Alucard, a seemingly invincible vampire, to destroy anything supernatural that pops up in the country. The Vatican reluctantly allows their operations while they have their own special forces to deal with threats that may arise. The last batallion from WWII is resurfacing after creating its own vampire army with the goal of starting the best war of all time. Not having seen the original or read the manga, it's hard to compare Hellsing Ultimate to its predecessors. The bad guys in here are just as fun, if not more so, than the good guys. The Valentine Brothers and the Major are pure awesome. The Major gives a speech which actually has a karaoke version of it in the extras if you want to preach along with him about why he loves war. Voice-acting is superb in this one. All of the original cast was apparently reunited to do this again. Crispin Freeman and Ralph Lister #Alucard and Walter the butler) get the most attention, but everyone performs superbly. Never even thought about turning on the original with subs. A butt-load of extras in here, too. About 2 hours worth. You've got commentaries for every episode, a Hellsing Ultimate panel from AX in '07, original promos, trailers, TV ads, and the Major's karaoke. Hard to find something with lots of extras in anime. Buy it, you won't regret it.

    Hellsing Ultimate is the rehashing of the original Hellsing story. If you are weary of blood, don't care too much for cursing, and believe that vampires are lame sparkly teenie boppers, then this series is not for you. It is what the series should have been the first time it was released. The blood, the gore, the violence, the cinematic work, the soundtrack, all of it make this series nearly perfect. each villain has a special level of insanity, and each hero / anti-hero has a quirk that makes them extremely entertaining. The Major's karaoke is one of the most amusing anime extras ever released. If you call yourself an anime fan, you already have this in your collection.

    This was my portal into anime shows. I love the characters and how they interact with each other as well as the plot and synopsis of the show. This is only the first 4 episodes and the second set has episodes 5-8. I cannot wait for the final 2 episodes to come out, hopefully it will be soon (I prefer the dub to the English subtitles so I'm going to wait for that, otherwise the series is complete if you watch it in Japanese). If you like the synopsis and can stomach some moderate gore then this show is for you!

    Hellsing Ultimate is a fantastic series. This Blu Ray and DVD combo pack is packed with a bunch of extra features including cast interviews. My only real complaint is that they did not release the series as one complete set but rather 3 individual sets. Otherwise it is a must buy for fans of the series.

    My daughter loves anime and loved this series when she watched it on cable. This series made a great Xmas gift for her. The series is spread over three sets, so you need to get them all to get the complete series.
