"While the first volume setup the basic premise of the show, this second volume really pushes the story further. Most of the stuff I was hoping that would be revealed in last volume are already revealed on this one.Order 04 (B): The Hellsing organization tracks down a person who distributes video of people being killed. The latest video featured on of the members from the Hellsing organization.Order 05 (B+): Jon and Luke Valentine attempt to infiltrate the Hellsing organization.Order 06 (A): Jon fights Victoria and Walter while Luke takes on Alucard. Also, Alucard's ture power is revealed.My favorite episode on this disc has to be the last one. If you thought Alucard was insane and violent already, just wait until you see him release Control Art Restriction Rating to level 1! Also, bothe Alucard and Victoria get new weapons. Alucard gets a "Jackal" which is a little bit bigger than his last gun. Victoria gets a huge gun thats as long as Walter that can easily pierce through armor three times. As I mentioned in my review of Volume 1, the F word comes into play a lot, especially in this volume. It seems like Jon can't even finish a sentence without saying it. Atleast the Valentine brothers didn't get an English accent.The packaging on this volume includes a special Hellsing crest badge. The extras includes interviews with the series staff, production sketches, textless closing and an image gallery of the Victoria figurine.Overall, this volume rates higher than the last one and still retains the devilish attitude of the first volume."

"I was amazed by how interesting this series has become. The characters and the storyline are very interesting and the action scenes are pretty cool. The music score is also very well done and the dubbed voices compliment the film nicely. The whole series is worth your time and money."
