Story

Good, confusing in places and full of cliché. Amazing as an action anime though. It builds to a crescendo in each episode and only slightly disappoints at the end.

 

Animation

Really dark in tone. Very well made. If you enjoyed the original this is markedly better. The action sequences are excellent and fluid and the facial expressions are all done really well. This being an OVA that is to be expected. 


Sound

Both the music and voices are superbly fitted to the series. The music is borderline epic at certain points but it feels like it is tryin too hard. The dub is brilliant. Alucard in particular is voiced extremely well. 

 

Characters

Some likeable characters, some inexplicable moments though. Alucard is his usual charming, in a badass kinda way, self. Certain characters do things that seem so at odds with their nature that they are a little hard to swallow. I won't go in to these but they are what drag the character score down

 

Overall

Brilliant, a personal favourite. Nazi zombies, warrior priests and vampires, what more could you want   

8/10 story
9/10 animation
8/10 sound
7/10 characters
8/10 overall
