Hellsing volume 3


Today's post is on Hellsing volume 3 by Kohta Hirano. It is 164 pages long and is published by Dark Horse. As it is the third in the series you need to have read the first two to understand the story. The cover has Alucard and Sir Hellsing on it. The intended reader likes vampire stories, over-the-top action, and very dry humor. There is language, no sex, and lots of violence this volume. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Vampire! Nazis! Bloodshed! Action! Add to that a healthy helping of sleek style and an exotic locale, and you have Hellsing volume 3. Our scant troop of vampire-killing vampires and mercenaries are planning a little trip overseas... to beautiful South America, in search of the elusive Millenium Project, an old Nazi organization wirh very secretive origins. It's the start of a war, and only time will show how nasty this war will become. But one thing's for sure, the vampire Alucard will make sure it gets off to a fitting start.

Review- This volume is not as funny as the last one but the action is very intense. And all the plot building. Still do not know much of anything about Millenium but we get to see how powerful they are. Alucard gets to play with them for most of the volume and he is having fun at the end. Millenium is prepared for him, so he having to work for the win. He could not be happier. No Father Anderson, just see him watching everything that is happening. Seras mostly stays out of the way too. It is really about Alucard having one long fight to restart the war between Millenium and Hellsing.

I give this volume a Four out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
