Hellsing volume 6


Today's post is on Hellsing volume 6 by Kohta Hirano. It is 186 pages long and is published by Dark Horse. As it is the sixth in the series you want to have read the first five to understand the story. The cover has Alucard and Sir Hellsing on it. The intended reader is someone who likes horror, lots of action, and funny plots. There is mild language, no sex, and lots of violence in this volume. The story is told from third person perspective following the characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- The war between three armies of vampires, humans, and those in between is in full swing. The Hellsing organization is embattled as London is falling to Nazi vampire forces, turning the city's citizens into rivers of blood and a population of ghouls. It looks like it might be the end of Sir Integral Wingates Hellsing and her henchman, Walter. But what's this? The Vatican? But that means the Vatican is unprotected. If you haven't figured it out yet, Earth is in chaos of a World War like no other. New forces will rise up, surprises of undead power will surge forth, guns will blaze, and blades will sing. There's no telling how this will end, as Hellsing clamors forward with a seething wit and a frantic pace, and style that passes beyond gothic grace.

Review- So much action in this volume. Alucard is only in a scene in this volume but everyone else makes up for that. Seras and the mercenaries are waiting for Sir Hellsing as they hold back the Nazi army. Sir Hellsing is with Father Anderson as they fight their way to Seras. And Alucard is heading somewhere and is quite happy. Add in lots of fighting and blood and you have have Hellsing volume 6. But plot is happening and so is character development. We get see into the head of the mercenary leader and why he does what he does. The leader of section 13 is crazy and it pays off with a promotion. I cannot wait to see what Alucard is going to do next. Only four more volumes in this series.

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.
