I still don't understand why he didn't want to become a vampire. How is being a cyborg preferrable to immortality?

Muh individuality. He hates how Alucard thrives on absorbing others into his blood.

He always could turn into a werewolf (probably). They seemed awesome enough.

>>134050947
Because he was fighting Alucard, the ultimate vampire.

I think the Captain was the last of his kind, and Nazi research was based on a vampire corpse they dug out, so it probably wasn't an option.

Did you not listen to his speech at the beginning of episode 10?

When you become a vampire you lose all sense of individuality, you become a being consisting of multiple souls, regardless if there's a dominant one or not. He didn't want that, he wanted to be his own person.

Individuality, its actually something Alucard deals with throughout the series as well. Vampires are creatures who are amalgamations of others. There power is derived from the souls of those they have consumed. Alucard during the series feels as if his stature and achievements aren't really his because he just relies on the strength of others to do anything of note. The major didn't want is achievements to be based on the power of others. He wanted them to be his own.

*German nazi science

There is a difference. Current Germany's got nothing on nazi Germany in terms of R&D.

And there was also that thing with him considering himself to be human and didn't want to be a monster

The line is pretty blurry, Anderson is considered human by Alucard despite being roided up on vaguely defined state of the art anti-vampire technology. Considering the apparent lack of mechanical parts and the regeneration factor I want to say it's nanomachines, son. Integra however views him and The Major as "things", tools who have surrendered their humanity in a different way than creatures of the night. Her viewpoint on Anderson may have changed a bit by the end of the series though as she seemed to be paying her respects in his last moments. As for the Major, he mostly just gets off on holding the high ground over Alucard, having had the strength to reject ultimate power just so he could retain his sense of self. Though it makes you wonder how powerful he could have been had he chosen to drink, since he would have been immortalized through the same method Alucard had.

I always thought there is a metaphysical meaning behind drinking the blood of the battlefield. It is not the blood per se which turned Alucard in a monster. It is symbolic for something but I don't quite get it. I've read Crowds and power in order to understand totalitarianism and human nature. Despotic rulers "consume" their victims, allies and foes alike, metaphysically - but I still don't see the difference between Alucard and Major.

Do you - by drinking the blood of the battlefield - surrender your individuality and humanity and become a monster?

But what's so unique about Alucard then? Thousands of despotic and evil tyrants existed. Maybe he lost es much humanity as nobody before him.

Is drinking the blood synonymous for killing? The Major probably never killed anyone. Others killed for him, but they have free will.

The answer is simple really, Kouta Hirano is all about being cool and edgy so he just puts in vague half-baked philosphical stuff that sounds deep.

He just loves war
ALOT
