    Rules prevent me from posting a link to the torrent, but if you download anime, you should already know where to get this.

    A shortened "digest" version of the first episode of the new Hellsing OVA is now available. It's in that stupid-ass Matroska format so make sure you have the proper codecs installed. Word round the campfire is the full version will be released in Japan on February 10, but this one is worth watching. Well worth watching. In fact, if you don't watch it, then you are a shitfucker who doesn't like good things. I just watched it myself, and in the words of the immortal Butt-Head, "This is the coolest thing I have ever seen." I'm too giggly right now to articulate any further.

    I was dissapointed by the way they changed the animation style. It looked better in the original version. More dark and moody than this one.

    That being said, I'd still recomend it to anyone even remotely interested in anime or vampires. The new/modified stuff they did was pretty cool. They seemed to have added a bit more humour to it, which worked overall as well. I also though celas victoria was pretty cool when she started to go into predator mode a bit when killing those ghouls

    In a nutshell it is about the Hellsing Orginization and its tame vampires hunting down and killing undead threats against England. Its also about looking as cool as possible while doing so. Its a fun series. The original OVA covered the first part of the manga through episode 6 or 7 before creating a new story for the last half of the show. This digest episode of the new OVA covers about half of what the original OVA covered from the manga.

    Nope, totally different. That was Van Hellsing, based (loosely) on the vampire hunter who led the mission to defeat Dracula in the original Bram Stoker novel, and has since gained something of a mythic status among vampire hunters.
    This is a vastly different story, which nothing to do with Van Hellsing, save that his name happens to be the name of the organisation.
