Dude all of Hellsing happened in the midst of the whole panic before Y2K
imagine that shit.
we’re talking the burgeoning internet days here guys. The original anime brought up the dark net in that awesome episode with the journalist lady and they were just touching the tip of the iceberg of an urban fantasy. I feel like the manga and Hellsing Ultimate were so obsessed with the whole nazi thing and the weird bizarro aesthetic that they forgot that there was… a world… that existed… that exists beyond its little nazi masturbatory bullshit.
