Hellsing is named after and centered around the Royal Order of Protestant Knights originally led by Abraham Van Helsing. The mission of Hellsing is to search for and destroy the undead and other supernatural forces of evil that threaten the queen and the country. This organization is currently led by Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, who inherited the leadership of Hellsing as a child after the death of her father. She witnessed his death which turned her from a once innocent and shy little girl to a tough and deadly force. She is protected by the faithful Hellsing family butler Walter C. Dornez, a deadly foe in his own right, and Alucard, the original and most powerful vampire that swore loyalty to the Hellsing family after being defeated by Van Helsing one hundred years before the story takes place. These formidable guardians are joined early on in the storyline by former police officer Seras Victoria, whom Alucard turned into a vampire.
As the scale and frequency of incidents involving the undead escalate in England and all around the world, Sir Integra discovers that the remnants of a Nazi group called Millennium still exist and are intent on reviving Nazi Germany by creating a battalion of vampires. Millennium, Hellsing, and the Vatican section XIII Iscariot clash in an apocalyptic three-sided war in London, and Millennium reveals its true objective: to destroy the vampire lord Alucard, ending a feud begun during World War II.
My Interpretation of the Synopsis
Newly minted police officer turned vampire, Seras Victoria fights her blood lust while navigating her new life at The Hellsing Organization.
Seras Victoria's first assignment as a police officer is an encounter with ghouls. In the small town of Cheddar, England she confronts the vampire who made the undead servants terrorizing the town and is almost turned into a mindless zombie herself.
Master vampire, Alucard, is the protector and servant of the Hellsing Organization headed by Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing. When Integra sends Alucard to investigate ghoul activity in the suburbs, he finds, saves and turns Seras into a blood-sucker such as himself.
After turning into a vampire, Seras struggles to keep her humanity, control her hunger for blood and master her new found powers. All the while Alucard, Seras and Integra uncover a deadly scheme that will engulf the world in ghouls.
There is one supporting character that deserves a mention. Walter C. Dornez is Sir Integra's butler. He's the only one that might be able to give her and Alucard a run for their money. In one of the renditions of Hellsing--he does. Walter fights with spider-like strings strong as steel and flexible as thread.
This anime is responsible for my love of this particular art form. It was also the inspiration of my first fan-fic.
That should at least tell you something.
In the past I loved art, but I was not into comics or visual novels. This series changed my mind. I absolutely love this genre of art we call anime because of this story, artwork, music, story-line and dialogue.
There are a few renditions of Hellsing and the one I saw was not the Nazi manga version but the ghouls take over the world version. So I think that's not the "ULTIMATE" story-line. But I'm not sure. I prefer the ghouls take over the world version because Nazi's have been done to death for me and I didn't really feel that story-line "fit".
The jazz music is awesome with the mood of the visuals and the dialogue at the time was witty to me. It let me follow Seras Victoria while keeping Alucard and Sir Integra mysterious with snacks of information about them I ate up like chocolate.
The plot moved. There was none of this... here's a character because we want you to care about them. This anime integrated the characters into the story. I didn't have to suffer through plotlessness that only served as filler. Each episode brought you closer to the world ending problem. When Integra and her band uncovered the take-over-the-world plans it was an unveiling that felt natural.
Left with a cliff-hanger that has me still wondering, but I'm too afraid to seek out an official second season. I'll stick with my fan-fic and dream of the second season on my own.
