Read full description of the books Hellsing Vol. 5:We’re half way through the series now and in this volume I felt a bit disappointed. Action wise not all that much happens in this one. Over half the volume is taken up with Alucard’s fight with Rip Van Winkle aboard a ship. Whilst the androgynous maniac is described as a werewolf we don’t get any transformation and we do seem to only get two expressions, insane glee or abject terror. Alucard’s body morphing is always awesome, but I’ve seen sharper and more interesting attacks in earlier volumes. There is one very nice bite scene though.
After the far too lengthy battle, the last third deals with the Major unleashing his war machines and airships on an unsuspecting London, whilst Alucard is distracted. Nice scenes of airships over London and Integra and Walter come off really well. Zorin Blitz with her tattoos looks pretty awesome as the next of the Generals to be introduced.
But that’s about it – the artwork isn’t nearly as good as in the earlier volumes and I felt a bit bored. I mean we know the Major’s insane and bent on war, so going on and on about his glee is a bit of a rehash. I also felt the balance wasn’t quite right in this volume. It is a to be continued of course, but too much weight was spent with Rip Van Winkle in the grand scheme of things.
I also felt this was a very self indulgent volume – It begins with Flash Point – Alucard’s dream of the spirit of his gun in the same vein as the end very random and completely off the wall Jan and Luke’s Paper War Humanity God Eat God corner. I can cope with a couple of pages at the end, but at the beginning as well? It’s like Hirano has just been let loose to do whatever the hell he wants, which isn’t necessarily a good thing.
This is still of course the awesomeness that is hellsing and head and shoulders above any other manga of its type out there, however this particular volume is one of the weaker instalments in the series.
Read information about the authorKohta Hirano (平野 耕太 Hirano Kōta) is a Japanese mangaka most famous for his manga Hellsing. Starting his career first as a mangaka's assistant (self-described as "horrible" and "lazy" in said assistant position), and later an H manga artist, he went on to enjoy somewhat limited success with other relatively unknown manga titles such as Angel Dust, Coyote, Gun Mania and Hi-Tension. His first major success came with his manga series Hellsing, which got its start and was subsequently serialized in a monthly manga magazine, Young King OURs, towards the latter half of 1997.
