Day 3 of the 100 Day Anime Challenge. Can you guess by the cover pic alone?
Yup it's none other than the Vampire King, Alucard. The original anime, Hellsing, didn't do him justice. But Hellsing Ultimate, whoooooo man did they really make him the bloody fiend I look up to today.
This is a true vampire, able to regenerate, summon hell hounds, become a swarm of bats, and raise the dead. . . and I'm sure they didn't show anymore simply because he was already OP enough not to mention probably too much of a badass to use lesser powers.
But his original form. . . And his background story. Really make his character stand out. There was always something intrinsically sad about him though. Something left unsaid. Alucard, well technically Hellsing Ultimate, needs a sequel and a prequel.
The Bird of Hermes is my name Eat my wings to keep me tame From the bodies blood is shed Soon the ghouls become undead The Bird of Hermes comes soon Not morning, evening or afternoon The Bird of Hermes feeds on fright Soon blood shall stain the night The Bird of Hermes will devour His enemies at midnight hour The Bird of Hermes is my name Eat my wings to keep me tame The night shall soon be stained with red You and your army lay bleeding and dead Your bodies shall rise soon And join The Bird’s platoon You shall learn to live in night You ghouls are made to fight The stench of blood is ever sour The Bird’s enemies shall cower The Bird of Hermes is my name Eat my wings to keep me tame
