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.
