MELBOURNE, Friday, 23 March 2007 – Prepare yourselves for another bloodbath freaks!
Based on the original manga from Kouta Hirano the story begins in the British Empire where for over a century the Hellsing Organisation has been secretly protecting humanity from the undead "freaks". When Sir Integra Hellsing succeeded as the head of the organisation, she also inherited the ultimate weapon against the undead enemies, the rogue vampire Arucard. Although his signature weapon is an enormous "anti-freak" gun called Jackal, he is a "true" undead with mysterious and frightening powers, which includes the ability to transform himself into bats and other creatures.
Hellsing Ultimate has been completely reanimated and retold to the standard it deserves, featuring a production team of anime stars responsible for classics such as: Haibane Renmei, Tenchi Muyo!, Trigun, Vampire Hunter D & Macross Zero. You'll feel like the gates of hell are opening in your living room.
