Hellsing Ultimate Series: II (Limited Edition/Metal Box/Geneon)


Picture: B Sound: B Extras: A Episodes: D



Hellsing, a secret order that protects England from vampires and ghouls. But with the ever increasing darkness, there seems to be no end to the corpses. Here is something controlling this evil, Hellsing faces and unknown evil that wishes nothing more than to crush them. But with Arucard, thing will get a lot worse before it gets any better... Hellsing is under attack from the Valentine Brothers and their army of undead ghouls... their forces and defenses are gone, and with only Ceres a recently turned vampire, Walter the Hellsing butler and Arucard they defend the Hellsing

Mansion from these undead legion. Impossible odds... or is it?


Hellsing Ultimate is a redone version of the original Hellsing anime, with redone characters, design and story. This version is even more gruesome and gritty than the original. Be prepared for lots of carnage, explosions and lots, lots of blood... the characters are back cooler than ever, if possible, bad vampire goodness. Hopefully the series will follow more true to the comic/Manga version story of what happens in the comic series unlike the original anime series which was developed before the author came with a conclusion to the series.


The limited edition comes with a limited steel case DVD holder, exclusive book with over 200 pages of Hellsing artwork, audio commentary, anamorphic widescreen. The 1.78 X 1 image is terrific and the 5.1 sound mix, especially the DTS is some of the best Geneon has issued to date. Also it comes with an extra disc with staff interview, trailers and production art gallery! A great package! My only one complaint is it is a single episode disc and I would have liked to seen more of the series, but if you are die hard fan of Hellsing, it is worth picking up this series.
