Classic 2001 anime series Hellsing follows the adventures of the title organisation, also known as the Holy Order of Protestant Knights – originally led by Abraham van Helsing. Their mission is to protect Queen and Country from supernatural threats. Currently led by Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, who inherited the leadership of Hellsing after the death of her father, the organisation finds itself engaged in a titanic struggle against the Nazi forces of the Millennium outfit. In their battles, Hellsing is assisted by a variety of unusual allies, including the original, legendary vampire Alucard, who swore loyalty to the Hellsing family after being defeated by Van Helsing one hundred years previously.
Hellsing features a diverse number of musical artists, including Yasushi Ishii, American rock outfit Mr. Big, classically trained composer Hayato Matsuo and 2-piece outfit Suilen.
