Hellsing OAV  
There's a very long trailer that someone I know in World of Warcraft linked to me..


I have to admit, I was a little dissappointed by the CG tossed around. The characters themselves look awesome.. and it's so neat to see some of the manga characters animated.. and animated so well. But the random bits of CG thrown in (like guns,bullets, etc) is a huge turn off. It's hard to get immersed in a series when there are things that look like they don't belong, because they don't have the same texture, etc. I would not want to see Hellsing as a full 3-D OAV, and I don't like the partial CG mixed in. Yes, I do realize that most shows are animated on computer now, but it's different. It's coloring and sequencing and stuff like that, not fully rendered objects, right? I feel that the story and the plot for this particular show already has enough going for it. They don't need a CG gimmick, such as Blue Sub N. 6, or mecha shows... Though.. The mecha shows, IMO, really benefit from the CG. And I guess it's ok with shows like YuGiOh! and Duel Masters, where the creatures are wholly seperate from the characters. But yeah.

The trailer made me happy and sad at the same time.

Oh yeah.. and I remember hearing way back when....
The release date was supposed to be Dec. 9th.. then I heard it was pushed back to late december.. then today I heard it was pushed back to late january (26th or so?).. but now the Japanese website is proudly displaying..
February 10th

i thought the original hellsing anime itself was piss-poor. i love the manga, though.

The anime is probably one of my favorites. Even though the plot has some major flaws, and they didn't follow the manga at all, I still love it :) The manga was great.. and I'm really looking forward to seeing THAT story animated. I mean.. Rip van Winkle is in the trailers, and she looks kickass! But yeah.. CG.. boooo

i was afraid the manga would be all 'we are badass vampires with attitude and we take ourselves with utmost seriousness', but found it quite witty. so i went 'wow this is great' and bought the anime boxset and felt it came across like that and returned it within a week :(
