Description:For centuries, the royal houses of Britain have kept a dark secret: vampires and the undead exist. Not only do they exist, but often they hold power in high positions, or work covertly to subvert those positions and the people who hold them. To counter this threat, a special force of dedicated individuals, headed by the heir to the Hellsing dynasty, works tirelessly to hunt down and root out the undead where they hide. Under the direct authority of the Queen, Integra Hellsing leads the Royal Order of Protestant Knights in a shadow war against her family's most ancient foe. But unlike her ancestors, Integra has an ace-in-the-hole: A servitor vampire of incredible power named Alucard. Beset on all sides by the forces of the undead, corrupt politicians who fear her autonomy, and even a rival organization from the Vatican, can Integra protect her country from its enemies? Or will darkness reign?

Not your average vampire show!! This anime started out wonderful. Cool animation, cool introductions to characters...then, BLAM!! It fades off into the sunset and has the most disapointing ending I have ever seen second only to Neon Genesis Evangelion. This anime is all eye candy, and NO story!!

Animation -10- The animation is a wonderful sight. There are amazing fight scenes that are just perfect. Perhaps the only flaw that I noticed was the drawing of the police girl, she seems that she is drawn proportionally different on each episode, but its not enough to knock it from the 10. The animation alone makes this perfect.

Plot -1- Well as you can tell by the score, I was not too happy about it. There are some MAJOR flaws in this story, as when it ends, nothing gets answered. I mean nothing, nada. There are questions left about the Hellsing organization, about ALL of the characters, the story never gets below surface level and it leaves you hanging with many question marks. Its too bad, this could have easily been one of my top anime if it was not for this horrible story.

Humor -8- There are some noted funny parts, but for the most part, it is serious drama.

Sound Track -10- A cool jazzy opening, music that fits the scene, and an OK ending song. If you like a sort of dark jazz, then this is right up your alley...I personally plan on buying the soundtrack.

Overall -7- This had sooooooooooo much potential, but they focused EVERYTHING on action and no story, so it goes to the realms of what could have been.
