Pulled the sound effects (*twinkle*) from a scan the Hellsing manga.
Seras: You have to wear a dress to a fancy ball like this. A special dress, bought just for the occasion! Which means that you have to go SHOPPING!
Can I come? Please? I may not be human anymore, but I still have female shopping instincts…Um…
Er…I didn’t mean to imply that you don’t have female instincts..ehehehe…
Note from The Future: Of course women can wear tuxedos (and look amazing doing it) anywhere they like. And on some level Seras knows this. She just really wants to see Integra in a dress, and is jumping on this excuse like a cat on a laser pointer.
Integra: When will this “ball” take place?
Walter: A week from Saturday.
Integra: can we rent a tuxedo in time?
Seras: A TUXEDO?!
Seras: You can’t wear a tuxedo to a fancy ball, Sir Integra! Even though you wear men’s suits most of the time — it would be sacreligious!
This is a hard figure to find these days. Which is a shame, for obvious reasons.
Just thought I’d share with you all the niftiness of this Integra figurine. Stand in awe of the really-darn-spiffiness and utter calm cool controlledness that is Integra. Worship Integra.
The great part is, those are the most dire insults either of them could think of.
Alucard: You called?
Integra: I have a question. What exactly did you tell that fangirl?
Alucard: It’s a secret.
Alucard: Don’t worry; it had nothing to do with you.
Integra: But what was it?
Alucard: Well, if I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret anymore, now would it?
Integra: Stubborn vampire.
Alucard: Nosy human.
Top: Original strip from 2003.
Bottom: Sample redraw from the strip’s 8th anniversary, in 2011.
Will this scene ever be brought up again? Keep reading.
Seras: Uh-oh, it’s waking up!
Alucard: Allow me.
Alucard: *whisper whisper*
Seras (thinking): So quiet even I can’t hear him?
Fangirl: Oh…that’s so COOL! MEEP!…*snap*
