So this morning was an adventure.
I woke up at 7:55 am because I could not sleep. Why? not only am I having sleeping problems, but also, cause Hellsing Ultimate IV came out (I hate calling it Ultimate....I think we older fans call it "OVA" more XD). So I went to Best Buy at around 9:45 am and stood outside like an idiot waiting for the damn store to open. Once it opened, I went in and got the DVD. Of course, being a rabid fan I bought the LE one (the one with the book) Suprinsingly, it only cost me $30. Originally it was supposed to be $35+. I had been saving little by little to get this damn DVD, and I finally did, the day it came out. Aside from getting the DVD, I sent my laptop payment (DAMN BILLS!!) to Dell. I also bought food and toilet paper (TOILET PAPER SHORTAGE!!!!) XD
Back to Hellsing now XD
I have the Japanese version of the DVD, (bought it back when I was not having these damn money issues XP) and I must say, I love the original to death (Alucard's voice=sex) but the dub wasn't extremely bad at all. One thing that I must admit, I love Alucard's voice in the dub, but I feel that Crispin Freeman is over doing it at times. Not only that, but I think that he's FORCING himself to make himself sound better. Its not a bad thing, cause thats what voice actors do, but come on Crispin....I dun think he should be growling when he says "find a way for me to get on that boat..." I also loved how they added in stuff. Like Alucard's "Look (or guess, I forgot exactly what he said) what I cought?....I caught you....Rip....Van....Winkle" that was smexy. I barely fangirl anymore, because im so used to him and have been watching/reading the damn series/manga for so long, that im immune to it now. But today, today I fangirled all the day.
One thing that struck them tho, was the Rip!Rape scene. As I mentioned, I had already seen it in Japanese with subtitles, so I know whats going on. but when you see it in your own languge, you get a different feeling. I dunno how to explain it, but lets just say that the whole time he was impaling Rip with her own musket, and he was like grunting and sighing, I was thinking to myself "holy shit...he's raping her and he's enjoying it" I dunno....I think its also different from when you read it. I've always known he was like "raping" her, he technicall "vampire raped" her, since he bit her without her consent, but it was like...wow.....I love this guy, he's my fav character..but..........He just raped a chick (ALUCARD IS VIOLENT AGAINST WOMEN!!!! notice how he didn't even take out HIS guns, he just punched her and pinned her against the wall *kinda sexy* LOL!)XD
but then again, its Hellsing what do you expect?!
but yes, lol it was good. to those who haven't bought it/seen it yet, I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND (LOL sounds like my ebay feedbacks XD)!!!! Its funny, witty (thanks to Alucard's "look what I caught!" quote and best of all DARK. So if you don't like Phallicness, or, I guess, symbollic rape...yeah..don't watch. Read the Manga first.
Although I know half of you on my flist have seen/read it so XD
This is directed to those friends of mine who have not!
Anyway. Other than the new Hellsing, nothing really new in my life. I'm excited about English class tho. We are now doing a compare/contrast essay and im planning to do it on Hellsing/Van Helsing. I will give the similarities and the differences. Its going to be fun! (I loved Van Helsing when it first came out, now I HATE IT! dunno why.......). I already have the paper set in my head, all I have to do is outline it, write it out and type it. Its not due until November 6th anyway, but heh, never a bad thing to start early right?
Well, im heading out. I dun have classes or work tomorrow, so I plan on trying to sleep. I've been having sleeping problems lately, so im trying to psyche myself by going to bed early or something XP
P.S. my icon at the moment is part of the Rip!Rape scence...although that sexy, I want a hot vampire to "impale" me XD
