Hellsing Vol. 1 - Impure Souls

Finished Hellsing - Impure Souls this morning. Really enjoyed it and I have the second dvd on hold at the library. Hopefully I'll get it soon. Unfortunately, they don't have any of the other dvds, so we'll see when I watch more after the next three episodes.

Why I liked it: Great graphics, lots of blood, gore, but not overly so. Or maybe over-the-top in a good way. Does that make sense? Basically, it's got lots of blood. It IS about vampires, after all. Alucard has this whole anti-hero thing going on that made me rather like his character. I just got shivers over that slow smile he would put on before the shit hit the fan. I'm interested to see more about the Hellsing Foundation. Also, this show has some awesome music. Just great. As in, I want the soundtrack yesterday.

So, yeah..I recommend this one. At least the first three episodes that I've watched have been good.

Crap. As soon as I saw the name 'Hellsing', I completely ignored this post because I promised myself not to buy any for a while. Now I read it, I'm buying a copy.

*head banging on the desk* Do me a favour, don't mention any more until I become rich. When? Hm, that's something I need to discuss with the hard worker in me. And maybe fire the lazy cow in me while I'm at it.

Aww...no more talking about anime? Our library seems to have a fairly good selection, from kids stuff to more adult like this one. I did pick up the second dvd, but haven't seen it yet. If I like it, I'll probably buy the third and fourth one. Someday. They're expensive. I also picked up the first few episodes of InuYasha, which is fun in a kooky sort of way.
