"Hellsing Ultimate: Volumes V-VIII capitalizes on the build-up of the first four episodes of the series by throwing the viewer immediately into the bloodiest action of the entire season. In fact, this set makes Hellsing Ultimate the bloodiest show I’ve ever seen and it is bloody wonderful. Not only is the level of action provided throughout V-VIII taken to new heights but it is portrayed gorgeously as well. With only two episodes left and a hefty cliffhanger, viewers should relish in the idea of being able to dive once more into the bloody world of Hellsing Ultimate."
