Kohta Hirano said in a side note in Order 05 of the manga, “It’s beginning to seem like everybody wears glasses. What to do?” On the twelfth day of Christmas my vampire gave to me Twelve pairs of glasses Eleven yellow roses, ten hellhounds barking Nine manga volumes, eight ghouls a-moaning Sven Catholics preaching, six… Continue reading Fangirl Karaoke: 13 Days of Hellsing Christmas, Part IV
