This community was designed for Hellsing fans, people who enjoy Hellsing, have great fondness for the characters etc...
PLEASE no character bashing (yes, this includes Incognito). What is "bashing" - basically it's a complete and total putdown with zero respect shown to a character. There is nothing wrong with not caring for a character but bashing goes way too far and it upsets other members. So please, don't do it in here or any other fan community unless you want to be very unpopular with everybody.

1: Is there going to be a second anime season by Gonzo? Nope, their anime series was meant to be for one TV season.
2: How many manga volumes are there? The series ended at 10. All English volumes (published by Dark Horse) are out in the US.
3: Where can I buy the manga? You can buy it at just about any comic/book seller - here's a few links for those who like to shop online - www.amazon.com www.amazon.co.uk www.amazon.co.jp (for the Japanese release)
It's published by Dark Horse (the US release) and was in Young King Ours (the Japanese release) until the series ended.
4: Are there Nazis in the manga? Yes there are and it's a organization called Millennium (aka "Millennium Group").
5: Is there a manga prequel? Yes Kohta Hirano wrote the "Dawn" (aka "The Dawn") which appeared in the Young King Ours specials which dealt with a fourteen year old Walter (aka "Young Walter") and a very feminine looking Alucard with bangs and a white pillbox hat (aka "Girlycard" aka "Femcard") in the time of WWII.
Also, a number of the current Hellsing characters have 'counterparts' in Hirano's early hentai (adult) works.
6: The ending of the Gonzo anime was a bit weird. Was this contained in the manga? Nope, the anime followed the manga reasonably well for eps 1-6, 7 was loosely based on the manga and episode 10 was another manga episode. But the other episodes came from the minds of Gonzo.
7: Are Incognito, Ferguason, Helena, and Bubbancy contained in the manga? Nope these were anime only characters. I'm still myself wondering where they dragged Incognito from Oo;
8: Hey, I just discovered Alucard is Dracula backwards! What does that mean? There are several allusions to Alucard being Dracula, or at least a descendent/genetically modified version throughout the series. See if you can spot em ;)
