Hellsing: Review

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]


Description:
Witness the blood-soaked roots of a legend in Hellsing, the action-horror series that launched the careers of some of anime's brightest stars. The vampire Arucard and his servant Seras Victoria protect the British Empire from ghouls and satanic freaks. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good--and tonight the streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.

Story:
What story? They establish the main plot from episode 4-7, only hinting at it in the beginning. It doesn't start out too well, and the pacing is okay. Even though it's the main plot the anime never truly focuses on it, it's shown in 6-9 minute scenes in every episode. That and it's a weak plot that is not entirely explained, even when it is explained.

Art:
Beautiful. There are some beautifully done scenes, they put alot of detail into certain parts. The guns and Alucard are done very well. But some of the animation scenes are quite sloppy, I found myself looking at some very poorly animated scenes at times

Sound:
The music in this doesn't disappoint, the music perfectly suits the anime.The music is chosen nicely. I also loved most of the sound effects that they used. There were certain crunching sounds that I particularly loved.

Character's:
Ah Alucard. Never has there been an antihero so original...or has there? Everyone loves an antihero. One who doesn't really do anything until he's needed. And Alucard does a great job of this. Too bad Seras is so useless. She spends most of her time hesitating and wasting time, so shocked at everything she sees to actually be useful at all. I couldn't see any development at all with anything she did. Integra doesn't do a great job either. I was usually bewildered at her, spending a lot of time wondering why everyone was addressing her as sir. Walter is kind of cool, but again we're only hinted at what he is. I found most of the characters really stereotypical.

My Rating:
Solid 6/10

This anime was amazing, it was too short though. Only 12 episodes.

This was an amazing series, watched it back in 2014. I'd have to say it was absolutely far too short, would've loved it they kept it going a bit longer. Great review!

To be honest, I was kind of on the fence about this series. However, after reading your review, I think I'll give it a watch. I wish it could have scored higher on your rating scale but that is your own opinion and I can respect that. Good job!

My close IRL friend told me this was a pretty great anime but I just cannot get past the rather odd art style. It's a shame how much something like that can effect me, but if what I'm looking at doesn't settle well the rest of the anime kinda falls at the way side. Maybe I'll give it a chance in the near future, not much else to watch this season anyhow.
