"I'll be honest. I normally don't go in for Limited Editions but a friend of mine is in the AX 2007 footage. I'm not a huge DVD extras junkie myself, but I did check out all of the extras and I was entertained by them all. If you're a huge fan of Hellsing and the English voice actors (and they're all quite good) then I would say you will be well pleased by the extras provided by the Limited Edition.
This third installment of the OVA is amazing. Pip is sufficiently smarmy and there are impalings, not really sure more needs to be said for fans of the series. If you're buying this for somebody you know is a fan of the series, this is a good choice if they already have the other two. This animated version follows the manga/comic *very* closely, so even a purist would enjoy it I think. If they only know the previous animated TV series then the story has already diverged and this is new territory for them. (Which is probably a good thing.) If you're buying this for yourself, and you're not already a fan of the series, you should probably make sure this series is your thing before buying all the way up to the third DVD."
How cool is this?

"Answer: Very cool. I don't normally write reviews but I want to register my support for the continuation of this series. I read the mangas and it follows quiet closely. Seeing all the familia scenes animated was great, I couldn't stop grinning. Yes its violent but its a vampire story for crying out loud. This is a great adaptation with the style in keeping with the original material. Love vampires? Love anime? Love Hellsing. I hope the producers are able somehow to continue with this series to the end."

"This DVD (and series) is brillaint.
The dub is really well done as is the original Japanese version. And the animation is superb, but maybe not for the faint hearted because of the blood etc but I'm not complaining. Also with the introduction of Pip, Major, Doc, the Captain and the Harkkonnen spirit, it makes the episode a whole lot cooler.
The extra's on the DVD's are really cool too. On the main disc you get the Japanese version, the dubbed version and a commentary with Victoria Harwood, J.B Blanc and Taliesin Jaffe (the ADR director). There are also trailers for other series from Geneon.
On the extra's disc, there is:
An interview with Ms Harwood, Mr Blanc and Mr Jaffe
The creditless ending for the OVA
A production art gallery by Ryoji Nakamori
A Voice actors Panel featuring Taliesin Jaffe, Crispin Freeman, Ralph Lister, Patrick Seitz, Josh Phillips and Jonathan Klein (and a surprise guest)
And the Geneon booth featuting the Hellsing Mansion
The DVD also comes with a bust model of Alexander Anderson (turning into his "Anderplant" form), which is extremely detailed. it includes one of his blessed bayonets and two pairs of glasses (two just incase the first pair get damaged or broken as they are rather delecate). A wonderful model to add to your Hellsing collection.
Overall, this DVD is a must b"

"It's unfortunate that Geneon (formerly Pioneer) is going out of biz in the US. Ironically, we'll probably never get to see the rest outside of fan subs... (Which means yet more of my hard earned money will probably be going to Hong Kong and other sources of pirated anime just to get the series I like...)"
