Was hellsing ultimate truly a good anime? Or was it kind of shit.
My opinions are:
>pros
Much needed improvement on the violence, follows more closely to the manga, awesome fight scenes, and an awesome soundtrack
>cons
Not nearly enough development on some characters, not enough backstory on anyone, in reference to the increase of violence it seems like the creators tried to out edge themselves, and too much "chibi" style animation.
What are your thoughts on the series?

You watch it for Gore and Alucard and Seras fucking things up that is it.

Its a Mindless fun show if action is what you what then action is what you get.
>>
I'm on episode 3 and enjoying it, art and OST standing out. Liking the comedy and didn't expect it from a serious looking show on the surface. Every line Jouji Nakata delivers is great.
>>
>>139732783
Literally copied word for word and scene form the source material.

If you think the anime is shit than you will say that the manga is shit.

Obligatory reminder that original op is the best.

>awesome soundtrack
That was the TV series.
>>
>>139735906
But the only good thing about the TV series was the opening. Everything else was forgettable. Ultimate has a good OST overall AND great ending songs.
>>
>>139732872
Pretty much.

While you will never forget that you did watch Hellsing and characters like Alucard, etc. It felt pretty forgettable in general. I barely remember anything about the plot or characters. For example I know some guy threw cards, but except for that I don't know shit about his appearance or personality. I still enjoyed it while watching though.

How Van Hellsing convinced Alucard to serve his family is the biggest mystery in the series too.

There's a good Josei about him and loli Integra too.
>>
I was just rewatching it yesterday. It's pretty great if you just want stupid cool violence.
>>
>>139737040
Why is Alucard turned into a smug hime cut loli?
>>
>>139737190
Hellsing is a good franchise because it's not a show but a giant character profile of Alucard who is super interesting when you get past the OPness.

Like why he serve the megane even though there's absolutely no obligation besides "muh promise"? Thinking about stuff like that as you learn about him makes it fun.
>>
>>139737232
Wouldn't you though if you could?
>>
>>139737340
Fan headcanon is that it's his wife that got killed hundreds of years prior.

Because at one point he did have a wife and child. The regular Alucard form is the form of his son and the bearded one is himself.

I rewatch at least once every year. Never gets old.

From what I remember ultimate followed manga very closely, I don't think they omitted any backstory or character developement as you said.

But basically >>139732872 is right.
It's an edgy show done very well. You watch it for fun, hyped scenes, and vampires fucking everything up.

This >>139735871 as well. Original had god tier OP, one of the very few I didn't skip, but that was almost the only thing it had going on for it. Ultimate was way better.

Can we have sources for these magnificent pages?
>>
Manga is better. Ultimate should really have added content rather than just adapted every panel

The anime loses the pure majesty of the artwork

Also why did ultimate not adapt the side story?
