Hello there,
Thank you for the screens. I gotta see Alucard in action, especially in his "i'm so sexy" disguise *___*
I was gonna watch in youtube but apparently the fragments got flagged, i hope there is some raw around there to see it or that the subs come out at some point.
So for those who have watched it, do you think it deviated in any way from the manga?

if you happen to own the manga (vol 2-4 this time around?) you can get it pretty much all in english. minus a few scene's and the addition of the wild geese bit before the title, it reads exactly the same, word for word. 0_o

The way the Hellsing OVA is treated is interesting, because it reminds me of both the 300 and Sincity movie.
Sometimes original materials like these graphic novels don't need to be altered when transferred to the screen; going word for word and scene-for-scene can actually work. It's not easy to do, but it can certainly transfer the spirit of the original very well when it succeeds.

Incredibly gruesome but oh so good. It's really cool to see why Alucard lusts for battling the strongest opponents and being arrogant and fearless.

Well, what drives Alucard is somewhat deeper than that. I don't think they're really going to get to the entireity of Alucard's lust for holy wars till OVA 8 or so.

still, isn't it nice for Alucard to have some actual character development for a change? ^_^

Wow id say that was the definition of "Ultra Violence", but pretty damn brilliantly done. The OVA's really do have alot more personality to them then the somewhat bland TV show and I think that really came through in the animation style this go round. Most shows I see lately are very high gloss and all about the CGI, but this episode had some nice grit to the visuals that I havent seen in awhile.

And as cool as alucard is I hope for more seras in the future...Just something about a cute vampire girl wielding small scale artillery that gets me aflutter.

Yeah, I enjoyed the TV series, but the OVA one kicks ass. The third one is awesome for some action and insight into Alucard. The whole hotel scene at the end is just, wow. Cant wait for more of them.

Also yeah, more Seras, she rocks and is hilarious. But from what I've heard we get some interesting character development with her, but probably not for an episode or two, if I'm to understand rightly.

Has the second one been released on dvd yet here in the US? These are taking FOREVER to get released here from the time they come out in Japan.

I think Nachi Nozawa was better fitting for Alexander Anderson, Wakamoto may be great but not for this role.

don't count on it till OVA 6 at best. :\ Though maybe they'll animate one of the "interesting" scenes involving Seras next time.

really?

I always felt that Wakamoto was a good fit for Anderson, simply because all you really need is someone who sounds badass. That's the only way Anderson acts through the entireity of Hellsing after all.

A roomate whose unacquainted with anime saw me watching episode 3, and I'm afraid what with all the extravagant violence and Nazi symbols, I'll be reported to the resident assistant about being suscept to homocidal behavior... especially in the aftermath of VT.

*Sigh* Ah well.

Fantastic, fanatstic music, can't wait for the OST to come out.

Spoiler for Alucard's OOC behavior?:

You're wrong. Anderson acts completely differently when he is teaching those kids in the beginning - he is a kind and devoted priest, and Wakamoto is not the one that can portray such two-face realistically.
