And it ALSO had to do with Nazis.

On Sunday’s Strip: The players are all here, let the games begin.

Both Hobbes and the animals in Count D”s petshop have a dim view on humans. I guess Hobbes could function as a weretiger (a tiger who could be in biped or quadraped shape or human appearance with tiger ears like Erin’s drawing) bodyguard for Calvin (while still pouncing and teasing him at times) against vampires and other threats in Shineverse. If Calvin did lend a hand to Hellsing, his weapon of choice probably be ordained water balloons.

As for guns, I think the Hellsing organization needs to make more use out of other anti-vampire methods and not be dependent on firearms. The Wild Geese could have at least have made use of garlic, holy water, etc. (if they did have it with them), when they ran out of blessed silver bullets in the fight against the Millenium vampires.

😀 It seems Pip’s idea wasn’t too farfetched after all. But I think one thing ANY of the players would love to have, no matter the objective, is Calvin’s ingenious Duplicator cardboard box technology.

Frey on Sun Mar 29, 2009 7:47 pm

Depends on as to whether Calvin will allow others to make use of his technological cardboard boxes. If he did, he would probably sell them at excessive prices. Such as when he dug up trash and mistook it for fossils and proposed to sell them at a price that no museum would pay, even if Calvin did have a real fossil specimen. Also, when selling pseudo-lemonade for 15$ a glass by using economic concepts to justify it.

As to the Nagasaki vampire research organization, what type of vampiric traits did the vampires they were developing had? Western, jiang shi, or something else?

Michigami on Sun Mar 29, 2009 10:39 pm

they were beginning to develop emo bishonen sparklepires, and therefore needed to be bombed out of existence before the horror could be unleashed upon mankind.

*sigh*

If that’s the case then I must once more lament the fact that some people just don’t take enough pride in their work to finish the job.

Hooray! Now you’ve used two of my favorite mangas (Read or Die, Pet Shop of Horrors), two of my favorite books (Good Omens, Sandman), and three of my favorite things when I was a child (Calvin and Hobbes, Madeline, Annie).

But I wonder why D thought Calvin would need Hobbes…? Maybe the monsters under his bed? Or maybe his imagination is so powerful it’s dangerous, like Goo in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Or maybe D just knew Calvin would have an easier time in his life with Hobbes around as a confidant, protector, and friend. Ah, speculation is fun~~

The yellow kid! Wow, he’s changed a lot. And somewhere along the line he acquired the ability to talk in actual speech bubbles! Good for him.

Am I the only one here who totally wants Krazy and Ignatz to show up right about now, but can’t figure out how on earth that would be possible?

Urahara on Sun Mar 29, 2009 11:57 am

I find it somewhat funny that Africa and Australia are the only continents without their own secret organizations.

I’m not counting Antarctica because there are only scientists and penguins there, which is perfect for a secret organization. No one would bother them, for one, and they could be doing all sorts of research for any government that’s willing to send people down there.

ObsessiveFangirl93 on Sun Mar 29, 2009 1:58 pm

No Torchwood?

*Looks Sad*

I’ve always imagined Torchwood and Hellsing butting up against each other a bit. Torchwood’s Supposed to Handle Aliens, (aka Foreign Affairs) and Hellsing handle problems here on Earth, (Domestic Affairs), but it never quite works that way…

…Still, the addition of the Warbucks is epically awesome.

Sum_Guy on Sun Mar 29, 2009 2:35 pm

Does this mean there will be no crossover with “Hellboy” and the B.P.R.D. (Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense)?

Also, this guy might make a good cameo in the Warbucks warehouse/factory/testing grounds:

Welcome!

That’d be awesome, wouldn’t it? But I think, sadly, this story arc has reached its limits for crossovers.

Mars on Mon Mar 30, 2009 6:39 am

Yeah, but maybe as, like, a shout out, they could be one of the organizations that benefit from Annie’s business. (Also, Pip: flirting with an eighty year old around a vampire you JUST confessed your feelings to? Not smart!)

BigKwell on Sun Mar 29, 2009 2:39 pm

There is one thing I’m curious about… how in the world did the Warbucks Organization influence events leading to the bombing of Nagasaki? If I recall history, the intended prime target of the second atomic bomb was Kokura Arsenal, with Nagasaki being the secondary target. Did Warbucks influence some of the events leading to ‘Bock’s Car’ (the B-29 Superfortress carrying the bomb) changing to Nagasaki mid-mission? 😕

That’s just what they want you to think.
