Toonami to Run Hellsing Ultimate Starting in September
FUNimation has recently announced that the Hellsing Ultimate OVA series will become part of Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block starting in the 13th of September. The OVA series will be replacing Black Lagoon in its current 3 AM ET/1 AM CT timeslot. It is said that Hellsing Ultimate will take up the entire hour due to the typical episode length of the series, but will still be edited in order to comply with the current guidelines for the TV-MA program rating used in the U.S.
FUNimation’s official description of Hellsing Ultimate:
The rogue vampire Alucard is the Hellsing Organization’s deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi freaks. He is not alone in his assault on the occult; the master has a servant. Policewoman Seras Victoria accepted Alucard’s gift of dark salvation after falling in the line of duty, and now the remnants of her human soul struggle against her growing vampire urges. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good – and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.
