How's it going my gumdrops? Just a quick note, I wanted to give another friend from Horror-Punks.com some exposure. Marquis De Blood's band (Others) is already on the main page of It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
Anyway, Shadow Windhawk And The Morticians are low on funds. They're currently trying to raise money for their debut music video. Shadow Windhawk explains the details in this video below.

Meanwhile, Adult Swim just premiered Hellsing Ultimate OVA 1 this morning. Earlier this year, I mentioned in my Horror Anime Reviews, that Hellsing had an animated TV series. Then, Japan released the OVA's, which are closer to the Hellsing Manga.
The Hellsing Anime franchise is a Seinen Action Biopunk/Horror Drama. Speaking of, Hellsing is named after and centered around the Royal Order of Protestant Knights. The Hellsing Organization was founded by Abraham Van Helsing. It's currently led by his daughter, Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Helsing.
Sir Integra witnessed her father's death at a young age. Van Helsing's death hardened Integra and made her a lethal force to be reckoned with. She is currently protected by her family's former "trashman" now turned butler, Walter C. Dornez and Alucard. Alucard is the original and most powerful vampire, who swore his loyalty to The Helsings. This was after Van Helsing defeated him.
The Hellsing Organization's main objective is to secretly search and destroy "the undead" and other evil supernatural forces, that are threats to the queen and England.
Aside from the other characters is Seras Victoria. She is a former police woman now turned "Draculina." Originally, Seras was sent on a vampire mission with her squad. Their mission became more than she bargained for. It resulted in her being taken hostage by a vampire priest, who controlled zombies.
Alucard had to shoot through Seras, in order to kill the vampire priest.
Alucard then gave Seras the option to die or become a vampire. She chose vampirism. This led to Alucard becoming her master. Now, Seras must drink blood like a regular vampire and go on missions with The Hellsing Organization.
I planned on posting Hellsing Ultimate OVA 1 in its entirety. This is no longer an option because YouTube very recently blocked outside viewers from watching it.
Funimation Entertainment was mostly likely behind the removal, since Hellsing Ultimate premiered on Adult Swim, this morning. I swear, Funimation revels in monopolizing almost every Anime in existence.
Geneon Entertainment originally held the dubbing rights to Hellsing, before the American branch closed.
I tried getting my mother to watch Hellsing Ultimate, earlier. She turned it off within a few minutes, while claiming it was boring and the characters were ugly. I am still in disbelief, that my own mother turned off Hellsing Ultimate!
This is the same mother, who watched Witchblade!
I will admit, the characters in the Hellsing Ultimate OVA's are very harsh-looking compared to the animated TV series. However, there's nothing boring about the Hellsing franchise.
If I'm remembering right, Adult Swim didn't censor any scenes. Next Sunday, the network will most likely do some censoring because of The Valentine Brothers. I wonder how many times the network will have to censor Jan Valentine.
When I originally watched Hellsing's TV series and OVA's nearly 10 years ago, I automatically thought about Motley Crue's Tommy Lee. Jan looks exactly like Tommy Lee, when he had went through his poser stage and formed Methods Of Mayhem circa 1999-2000.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, YouTube "Methods of Mayhem Get Naked Uncensored."
If you watch it, you'll probably die from wheezing and laughing hysterically. Now, every time I see Tommy Lee, I automatically think about Jan Valentine and laugh hysterically. It's hilarious. Because I cannot access Hellsing Ultimate OVA 1 in its entirety anymore, I will leave you with the best of Jan Valentine.

Don't forget to watch Hellsing Ultimate Sunday mornings at 3am Eastern/2am Central. You can always watch it at 6am Eastern/5am Central, in case you missed the earlier Adult Swim schedule.
Let me know what you think!
