VI: A Proper Lupin III Adventure

Lupin promises to steal some major British relic. The Coronation Stone? The Crown Jewels? To defend against him, the Queen calls in the world’s foremost Lupin expert: Detective Koichi Zenigata.

Cue a scene in which Zenigata explains, with the detail and confidence born of experience, how Lupin would bypass every single defense the Round Table knights can think of.

The solution: go supernatural. (Integra isn’t thrilled. This isn’t Hellsing’s line of work.) Alucard, Seras, Yomiko, and various other super-powered Brits are put on guard duty.

Lupin does try to sneak in…disguised as Pip. He’s interrupted by Seras, who demands proof of his identity. Lupin is all too happy to flirt with her by way of demonstration. (Meanwhile, Alucard is dual-gun/sword-fighting with Goemon and Jigen, and having the time of his life.)

Lupin tricks a few of the powerful characters into fighting each other, and makes it to the treasure. However, in the battle, Zenigata is badly wounded, and Lupin must choose between getting away clean with his prize and making sure his old nemesis doesn’t die tonight.

The choice is obvious. A life of crime and riches wouldn’t be half as fun if he didn’t have the Detective around to chase him for it.


VII: Hellsing Heir Auditions

As suggested by Matthew Henry, back in the days when the fandom assumed Integra would be required to produce an heir to run Hellsing.

(In the final chapter of the manga, Integra confirms that the days of family organizations are over, and her job will be a government-appointed one rather than an inherited one from now on.)

Rather than get pregnant, Integra decides to adopt, and hold auditions. Many kids apply, believing themselves to be suitable candidates. Few actually are.

Walter: Sir Integra, there’s a bus outside to ask about the heir auditions.

Integra: A whole bus? Where’s it from?

Walter: Well, my Italian is a bit rusty, but I believe the writing on the side says “Ferdinant Lukes Orphanage.”
