TV series vs. Hellsing Ultimate pros and cons, 6 January 2008
9/10

After watching the TV series of Hellsing, reading the manga and watching Hellsing Ultimate series, here are my personal pros and cons...

~TV series~

Pros: 1.The series went at a steady pace, if you never watched or read Hellsing before this series is easy to follow and understand.

2.Although the series steered away from the original manga story line, it still had a good plot that you could easily "get into" and follow.

3.Better listening music although I still did enjoy the music in Hellsing Ultimate. 4.Not really a pro, but I know a lot of the voice acting can affect how someone can like an anime, just so you know the voice acting is very well done and suits each individual character and their personalities. 5.Crispin Freeman has a sexy voice 6.Alucard is sexy ^_^

Cons: 1.Not the original story line in the manga(I know some people don't mind anime that doesn't follow the mangas)

2.The animation is OK. There's times where it looked good, time where it looked bad like every anime, but there is lack in detail and can have a bland look.

3.No comic relief, but some people prefer it to be that way for a dark anime.

Overall the series is well put together. Definitely an anime well worth every penny.

~Hellsing Ultimate~

Pros 1.Animation, besides the use of 3D effects here and there(which I personally don't care for) much more detail than the TV series, especially in facial features and clothing detail. Its no Vampire Hunter D, but if you were to compare the TV series/ultimate series to Vampire Hunter D animation, go with Hellsing Ultimate.

2.Follows the manga story line.

3.This can be a pro or con. One long episode per disc(about 50 mins per episode) which some people like. So no annoying skipping intros/endings to get to the next episode

4.The same voice actors from the TV series came back to work on Helling Ultimate.(I hate it when animes change voice actors)

5.Alucard shows more emotion and is more deep than he is in the TV series, but still maintains his cold sadistic personality. Victoria and most main characters show more emotion.

6.Comic relief here and there.

7.Crispin Freeman still has a sexy voice... ^_~

8.Alucard is still sexy.(even more in hellsing Ultimate in my opinion)

Cons 1.Music isn't as good. Fits the series, but not something to really sit and listen to.

2.This series moves much more faster than the TV series, making it harder to follow and understand. I'd suggest watching this after reading the manga or watching the TV series.

3.1 long episode per disc(each episode is generally 50 mins long) while this can be a good thing for some ppl, I find that most people like having multiple episodes per disc.

Hope this helped ^_~
