Can't wait, too bad it got delayed again.. Awesome that they're throwing in some extras though, but the episode in itself will probably be more than enough.

Funimation might as well just wait to release this one at the same time as well. In fact, by the time they release it, or even plan a release date, all of them will probably be done... They better have more than a petit extra, it better be actual good extras when it comes out.

I'm still holding out hope for Season 2 (Episodes 5-7) to be released sometime in the Halloween season as a package deal. FUNimation's current modus operandi is to release DVDs in sets of episodes of 13 or so, with about a $40 price tag, and although the Hellsing Ultimate Season 2 is more like 6 regular-length episodes, I think we can expect a similar pricing scheme.

I still have to buy volumes 3 and 4. Still hoping to see the other ones this year. Won't hold my breath though.

Last year they said they were gonna release ep 5-7 sometime in 2011 along with Darker Than Black 2 and some other series. But I agree, don't hold your breath. I was hoping for a May-July release but obv not. At least there will be more Shin Chan Very Happy

Nice to see they're moving along in Japan. Now if only Funimation would release volumes five and up!

Heck, I'm not holding my breath, but I'd love to get the limited edition of number five with the figure of The Major like was released in Japan. Though with all this delay I doubt we're gonna get the special figure with it like the Alucard and Anderson ones that came with prior DVDs on volumes one and three. Hell, we'll be lucky if we even get them steel cased special editions at all.

Never mind the anime Blu Ray market is going now and I'd have to rebuy the DVDs in Blu Ray if they re-release them.

Or, if you're that interested n what happens in the series, you could, heaven forbid, actually pick up the manga which is completely released in English.

Between the very, very slow release schedule in Japan an not hearing a peep about Hellsing from Funimation since AX 2010, Hellsing has been so frustrating. Good thing these OVAs are so awesome.

I'm just surprised this series has not been axed yet. It's extremely rare these days that a project that lasts this long and has put out very little content still able to to continue.

So after Volume 8 there'll be two more and making it a total of a 10 volume OAV if I did my math correct? Cause judging from how much this has covered the manga, they're almost done. I know this OAV series has been in production for a while, but it would be a real shame if they didn't conclude it when the manga had a better ending than the TV series did.

Overall, I'll be looking forward to the last 3 Hellsing OAVs, and the US releases of Volumes 5-7.

Am I the only one that have the first OVA's sitting collecting dust waiting for this thing to complete?

I am bad with long delays and I already have enough angst with Evangelion movies, I don't need another never ending "thing" on my radar.

Your neverending "thing" will finally be out on the 24th of Oct. Hurrah! It only took almost 8 years. Gonna be funny to watch all 10 in a row knowing how long people have been waiting from release to release.

I'm pretty much just going to wait for a stripped down collection of all of them before I purchase this.
