It's amazing!You can't help but like Alucard.He is what every man wishes to be;powerful,self-controlled,fully knowledgable at what he does and he's got a cool trenchcoat and hat!

And the plot keeps you going from the beginning.wich is very rare to see in today's animes

Watched 9 eps, kickass anime, great fockin' action, very cool characters.

The plot is kinda nonexistant in my eyes though, if you discount the Anderson\Alucard rivalry (VERY good stuff there) there's not a lot else of interest. Freak chips at large, be dismayed~~ And a lot of vampire related nonsense.

Still, very cool anime. Episodes 5-7 are bloody amazing (and I do mean bloody).

Hellsing, a story about a secret organisation that fights monsters in the underground. A government blackops as it were, that fights supernaturals beings like vampires, ghould, werewolves, etc of the western world. Hellsing is situated in Great Britain(aka England), Europe. The story is viewed from the point of a recently turned to vampire police woman, her name has slipped my mind. To say that Hellsing is a hypocrite departement that uses supernatural beings to fight supernatural being is grossly a misunderstanding, cause humans ability could only get them so far. With the help of AlucarD(Dracula, a vampire), Hellsing tries to fight off these supernatural beings. Like Vash the Stampede, Alucard is a superpower extraodinair, he is very well aware of his capabilities and doesn't hide them under the table either(he can't stop yabbing about it).

Right now the fansubbers are at 9-10, I have only seen up to ep 1 to 6 and 9(yes, I was impatient). Its looks good, nice style, a bit dark at the start, but its gets brighter. Though Alucard alternate form isn't what I would say cool or awsome, but it works for him so its fine with me. BTW this show has been licensed by Pioneer or some other company, but the fansubbers still bringing it out so how bad good it be

i seen 1 - 7, it was great, a friend of mine compared it to nge, but personnally i see it as nothing near nge, its good too watch, but does not give you much to think about, alucard is smoothe' and in control, from what i've seen it can get a lot better but (more into the vampires (possibly something that alu doesn't absolutely rape with a stick (can i say that?))) ;x

I have eps 1-9 and the soundtrack and a few of the mangas. I would describe it as a cross between Trigun and Master of Mosquiton or Vampire Princess Miyu. Bit of comedy. Bit of drama. Bit of good, old gothic darkness.

And, you have to love the pimpin' red trench coat

i've seen eps 1-9 so far, yeah Alucard is super cool and super freaky at the same time.

in the fansubs i saw they said that his name isn't Alucard but Arkard. i dunno where they got that from cos Alucard (Dracula backwards) makes more sense ??? i guess i'll find out for sure when the DVDs come out.

I think you got the wrong version, that takes it to literally what the VA said, cause my version from ANSI and AP both translated the name as Alucard.

I like the part after the credits. I thought "Oh, My god", Vladimir Harkonnen. Pretend this was the trigger to your "Harkonnen" weapon, would you use it . Victoria's reply; I'll never use it again

Romanized, I'm fairly confident its supposed to be Alucard. Frankly, considering the entire vampire thing, I think they meant for his name to be "Alucard", the japanese people just can't say "Alucard". Also, I'm not clear on this but a friend told me that the Japanese language does not have an 'l'(letter L) so when they transcribe Alucard it comes out Arucard or Aakard(if they speak fast).

By the way, it was [si] that said it was Arkard.
