Top: Original strip from 2003. Bottom: Sample redraw from the strip’s 8th anniversary, in 2011. Integra: How can we find out what will make a fangirl happy? Fangirl: Check our websites! All: … Integra: Fangirls have websites? Fangirl: Of course! How do you think we meet each other?
The quote is directly from Metamorphosis, formerly at Hellsing.nu. Walter: I just can’t decipher some of these sites. Look at this quote, from a Seras fangirl’s website: “I suppose Alucard’s feelings could be stretched out into something romantic, but he seems much more distracted by Integral.” What do you suppose that means? Walter: …Alucard? Seras:… Continue reading When Fangirls Attack 13/25
A friend of mine, upon seeing this, remarked, “Suuuuure, you were pulling off fangirls under the desk. I believe you. Let me know how the baby turns out.” Alucard (thinking): Of course…it won’t come off… Fangirl: Ooh, Alucard’s mad! Look out! Fangirl #2: Can’t…let…go…of…nifty…Seras! Seras: Ouch! You’re hurting me! Seras: Ohhh…is that what you were… Continue reading When Fangirls Attack 14/25
In the last panel, that’s the Alucard fangirl talking, not Alucard himself. (Fangirls can appreciate characters other than their own particular obsession. Just not as much.) Walter: Might we return to the topic at hand?…A number of fangirl sites express enjoyment at something code-named “Order 09: Red Rose Vertigo.” Integra: What’s that? Walter: A video… Continue reading When Fangirls Attack 15/25
Walter: I believe we’ve found our answer…Fangirls of everything to do with Hellsing are fascinated by the “Alucard/Integra dynamic.” The Master/servant relationship, the pride that each has in their race, the clash of strong personalities… Walter: Fangirls adore these tensions, but can get overwrought by them and “spaz out” — especially by what they perceive… Continue reading When Fangirls Attack 16/25
Walter: The point is, if tensions ran high enough, it could be sufficient to overwork every fangirl and fanboy in this room. Our little infestation problem would be solved. Alucard: Is that what you want, Master? Integra: Of course it is. But… *gasp*
I remember when I first saw that picture. My first reaction was a combination of “really freaked out” and “this is so cool.” (My mother, who wasn’t in on the “he can’t actually shoot her, she’s his Master” detail, was just freaked-out.)
Fangirl #1: Integra isn’t fighting this! Why? She said she’d never give up, she would die before giving up! What’s going on here? Fangirl #2: Does Alucard resent Integra for keeping him as a servant, or himself for coming to accept it, and losing his pride?…OH, THE PSYCHOLOGY! Fanboy: Walter thought up this plan, of… Continue reading When Fangirls Attack 19/25
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. Fangirl: A…lu…card… 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*
Walter: Now, if you’ll just deposit the fangirls here, in the interdimensional portal… Seras: Right. Walter: Alucard, if you will? Alucard: Easily. Seras: Is this portal-closing power just an excuse for Alucard to look cool? Walter: Isn’t everything?
