This review is from: Hellsing - Vol. 1 - Episodes 1-3  [DVD] (DVD)
This show grows on you, when you're not looking. You suddenly realise that you're dying to go home and play it again. The theme music gets stuck in your head. And you're still trying to figure out if "Sir Hellsing" is a woman or a bishounen. And whether Arucard\ Alucard is really... well, the dark Transylvanian prince.
Gory, yes. (So you may need to close your eyes a bit.) In places poorly dubbed, yes. (I recommend watching the English version along with the English subtitles to get a fuller impression.) Engrossing, YES!
Buy it, and the rest of the series, because you don't want to be left wondering what happens next, as each ending is cliffhanger-city. Don't say I didn't warn you...
