Hellsing Complete Series Anime Classics Review [Capsule Computers]

Simon Wolfe writes:

"Hellsing has gotten a similar treatment to Fullmetal Alchemist in that the original anime release of both occurred during the run of the manga and therefore differed from the manga itself. They both also saw a second series, each with an additional word title, Ultimate and Brotherhood respectively, that followed the plot of the manga more closely. Because of this, both original series live in a kind of limbo parallel to the manga and redone anime. In light of this, the re-release of Hellsing as an anime classic a little more than a decade after its original gives the opportunity to look back at the original attempt and how it stacks up today."

Mmm, after watching the Hellsing Ultimates these just look bad as far as production value and quality goes. Sure it is still a classic, but it is is one that's been outdone by a far superior production.

this was never impressive, I always found it to be over-rated. I'd give this a 2 out of 8

It was always bad , even without ultimate around . Pretty much only the first ep was well budgetted and wanimated . The rest was the illusion of a kick-*ss soundtrack , the coool voices , but truly badly animated and drawn eps .

It was also an awful adaptation of the manga that couldnt stay on track and invented awful fillers .

I never did understand why the original anime went off track. It wasn't a case of there not being enough manga to complete the series, and they did have hints in there to the actual plot, so their choice to go so far off base were highly confusing.
