Hellsing Ultimate OVA Series


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anime on DVD has acquired information released by Geneon at the MIP TV trade show in France regarding a couple of new shows that Geneon is involved with or has licensed.

The first is a brand new Hellsing OAV series.

Geneon is listed as the North American and Japanese distributor for the new Hellsing OAV series. According to the one-sheet, the "Hellsing Ultimate OVA Series" is "based on original comic." Reliable information that we have received from industry sources tells us that the series will be much more faithful to the original manga than the TV series. Also of note, while Gonzo's parent company, GDH, is listed as the Asian and European license holder for the OAV, they are not significantly involved in the production of the new series.

The one-sheet lists the episodes as 35 minutes each but does not provide any information on the number of episodes.


I would like to see this OAV make it stateside.

I heard about this a while ago and to be honest I'm absolutely thrilled! Despite the fact that the original is despised by most anime fans I enjoyed it, although the plot did weaken after it diverged from the source material. Hopefully they'll finish the entire series, seeing as the manga seems to be coming to an end. I can't wait for the london invasion! Evil vampire nazi's vs Dracula! How can it go wrong?

I saw part of Hellsing a while back, it was on channel 535 (action channel) on a Friday night when they show a lot of anime. My TV was blocking it and so I had to get my dad to unblock it... for every single episode. He went to bed at about eleven or so and after the current episode was over I was forced to abandon watching the show, for I wasn't going to wake him up for the sole purpose of unblocking a channel.

What I saw was extremely entertaining, and I wish to someday finish it. It was really quite good.

I have the entire DVD box set of the series (got it for Christmas a couple of years ago).

The only problem I have with the series was that the ending was too abrupt.

Is it EVERY episode? I hope so.

Because, in the measure of time, in the measure of humanity, we sense those self-indulgent instincts to be a weakness, we sense that the needs of the community must outweight the desires of the one. Only when we admit to our failures and recognize our weaknesses can we rise above them. Together." -Drizzt Do'Urden

It had better be. Even though the Hellsing out at the moment is pretty good; it lacked character development.

Besides showing that Alucard is insane they didn't really have alot of time to get the others in. Less than 20 episodes i mean really what could they get done in that amount of time?
