Wow. i just read rkenshin's review and i don't think i can beat that. Really you might want to skip my poor review here and just read her's. Kudos rkenshin, i don't think i can put it better myself.

So let's start here, this is the rushed ending of hellsing, as you might have noticed the anime started to fall apart once they stopped following the manga (Vol 3 starts a totally different plot). And the unfortunate appearance of Incognito insues therein. Really i just enjoyed the anime so much that i could not give this less than 8 though. In truth even though Incognito is here some good scences happen in vol 4. first and foremost (spoiler warnings) THE GENERAL DIES! Man i hated that guy, he never does anything important and all he says is amen all the time, seriously i think he said amen more than Shinji says hai or ano in evangelion. Good riddance. (limited spoilers release complete) High points of this volume include seeing Alucard with two guns killing like a devil, Sir Hellsing ranting, and Walter. the "story" of course concludes here with a showdown between Alucard and Incognito. In the end though this series REALLY should have been 26 episodes atleast and followed the manga a bit closer. unfortunately i don't think anyone will be picking up a liscence for season two (Please let me be wrong!) the anime just deviated to much from the original plot for anyone to do another season. However as usual in Hellsing the action is well done and its well worth watching vol 4 for just that, and for atleast a little closure.

This was the best series I've watched so far. I loved it. I wish it was longer though. :)

Bloody action and a brooding darkness with an abrupt ending by hneline1 February 10, 2003 - 11:27 PM PST

Argh -- this series deserves a 26-episode run. Studio Gonzo does an excellent job with the bloody action and brooding darkness in this horror tale. I love how the vampire story has been updated with heavy guitar rock beats and a master vampire who... well... simply enjoys what he's doing. Unlike in other typical Dracula tales, here is a creature who is quite sane and who happily uses Hellsing-issued silver bullets against his enemies in anticipation of a good fight.

However, with only 13 episodes, the ending is too abrupt and many storylines are left dangling. I admit that I was disappointed because I wanted more closure. Hellsing started with so much promise in the beginning of the series as it created a throbbing world of mysterious organizations and dark creatures in the British countryside. It began to lose its focus in the middle, with the introduction of artificial vampires and the Vatican special forces and the vampire brothers and too many other sidestories. In these last episodes, I was waiting for everything to tie together and for me to go, "wow, that one was one absolutely cool ride that finally makes sense, let's do it again."

Don't get me wrong, the ride is still thrilling and the action is excellent. The enemies are innovative and challenging. I like Hellsing and I would watch this DVD again. It's just that Hellsing could have been an extraordinary bloody action thriller with a message, not just a very good one, if only it could stop stuttering and had the time to SAY something. Oh well, I guess I'll start reading the manga now to find out what really happens later... :-)
