I don't know if I'd really say longer... The storyline flows differently than in the anime. There are things in the manga that are not in the anime, and there are things in the anime that are not in the manga (Incognito for instance). Although, book number 5 does say, "To Be Continued," at the end (I don't know if that means anything or not, though, I certainly hope it does).

Alexander Anderson is much cooler in the manga then he is in the anime, at least in my opinion. Much more psychotic.

There's more humor in the manga as well. And Seras's first taste of human blood is very...different...

The evil thing is that Dark Horse will only be putting out the first book then. Does anyone know how long it usually takes them to get more books out in a series?

At least with Dark Horse you can expect a high quality release with good translations! Unlike Viz.. *stabby stabby*

I really love the Hellsing manga! Integra and Alucard play off of each other really well. Those two are always bickering, and it's quite funny.
While the anime has a stylish touch I find the manga to be much better ^_^

The Hellsing manga is currently being serialized in Young King Ours.

The manga is more violent and more humorous at the same time... It is quite different in some ways.

The Dark Horse publication will come out 12/28. It will be produced in Japanese format..

The manga has Pip, Heinkel, and Schrodinger which automatically makes it better than the anime XD I'm pretty sure the manga's still running because vol. 5 would be a very... odd place to leave off.

The Dark Horse release is scheduled for December, not November. I'm certain that there will be more than five volumes, as the conflict with the Millennium Organization was not resolved. The manga boasts more characters, better characterization, and a smoother plot, not to mention entirely different villains (which I've heard did not make it to the television release due to their correlation with the Nazi regime). I own #1-5, and I highly recommend them, though the Dark Horse release will probably be preferred by most reading this.

Oh yes, check out Alucard's gun on the cover of manga volume 1. I wonder why "Clockwork Giant Pandas" didn't make it onto his gun in the anime? :P
