The riveting conclusion to the two-volume episode!
A mysterious bead and a young woman’s dying wish have brought D to the seashore village of Florence—a town that’s perpetually stuck in winter. Summer comes to this shore but one week a year and it brings something more than just the warm weather—the sole-surviving Noble comes out of hiding too!
That rare bead may hold all the secrets of the Nobility and humans. With such an enticing artifact in his hand (literally!), D is doggedly pursued by the henchmen of the young woman’s murderer. These unscrupulous assassins have no qualms using the dead woman’s sister as bait to draw out D, but the mysterious Noble has other designs on her. Finally remembering what he has been seeking all these years, the Noble won’t let anything get in his way—even a notorious vampire hunter like D!

Kohta Hirano - Hellsing 2. (angol)
A world of murder and mayhem, political intrique and religious conflict, monsters and undead heroes boils the radar of regular existence. And it's bomb-grade business! There's the cute little police girl, Victoria, a recently turned vampire, who refuses to drink blood and become the real thing (but she's still a darn good fighter); the super swank super-vampire Alucard, who hasn't completely shown his abilities; and the old butler Walter, who's got some tricks under his trousers as well. This is but a taste of characters killing and being killed in Hellsing, and the action is just beggining. With language and style at eye level with today's older youth, Hellsing is not only a good entertainment, it's fashionable gothic fantasy with a light touch and a dance of violence that jumps the fence of normalcy and runs off laughing into the dark.
