*lets Heavy Metal Queen grab the picture* I never considered Alucard a bishonen in the definition of the term, but a lot of people use it as a catch-all for attractive guys in anime & manga. Alucard's his own kind of vastly attractive man. I actually didn't even consider him handsome until I saw vol. 3 of the manga. I saw him in that suit HMQ mentioned and blinked. All I could think is, 'Oh my god. He's hot!'
*evil grin, waves picture of Alucard in front of Heavy Metal Queen* Trust me, you cannot speak TOO much about Alucard. My boyfriend adores Big Red, and I hear his praises just about every. single. day. I love the creepy vamp meself, but unlike some people, I can like Vampire Hunter D too!
I read just a little of Blood Knight, then had to sit down and read all of the original one that was discontinued and keep up with the current one. It was really, really good. I think my favorite from the original was where Alucard was in the white suit kicking back on top of the mansion. ;D It looked totally spify.
Considering I missed the fangirl deadline, I have to have SOMEWHERE to post the rants I thought up! *looks heavenward* Please Thoth, don't let me be the only one... ;D So....rant for...um...Alucard!
He's so very nifty, considering that he's supposed to be an inhuman beast, and he is, and he's very, very good at killing things which is true (sort of) to the original Tepes, and I love his bright red eyes (which I call 'wine-red' in my own fanfics) and how can you not fall for those really big guns, despite the compensation issues they bring up and the way he laughs when he's got someone under his boot is just absolutely spify and when he's faced with a decision of break free of his leash or save his master's life he goes for the loyal reaction and you can really tell that he and Integra have a strong friend/partnership based on mutual respect going on and I think that could lead to a LOT more but even if it doesn't it's worth watching the anime over and over again just to hear him say 'Goddamn punk!', and I love that line and I think he's so clever the way he uses his powers to play with FREAK vampires and fangirls (tribute to Erin here!) and I can totally see him waiting years and years to turn Integra cause that would be the ultimate triumph over the Hellsing family especially considering what they might have put him through, like silver chains (tribute to the original Blood Knight here!) and he's just so incredibly COOL!

EEEE! *tacklehugs Zahmira* THANK you! I couldn't find the release date anywhere. (And if it was on Dark Horse's site.... ;D Oops.) If we have to wait more than six months, I'll just start writing my own to keep myself sane! Er...well...*rubs out last sentence* There.

I'm bragging about being g/f to someone vastly indirectly related to Tepes. ;D Oh yeah, all anime fans are nuts. I'm spending over $200 on Gensomaden Saiyuki, my b/f's collecting Trigun, and we haunt certain sites looking for release dates for Hellsing #6. Yup! Loony!

*casually tucks away the wolf backpack, Good Luck Carebear, Lisa Frank 'Rainbow Chaser' oversized notepad, nylon angel wings, biography of Jeffery Dahmer and lucky chess piece* Yes. I somehow manage to keep it well under wraps.
There was a cousin of Vlad Tepes on the Mayflower. My b/f's mother does a LOT of geneological research on her family, and she found a record of a cousin of his coming over to America. Now, of course, considering the breeding that went on in the first few colonies and my b/f being able to trace his mother's side back to their first ancestor, he's crowing about being vastly indirectly related to Tepes. *snicker*
I've been threatened with dire consequences if I even think about doing #874 ;D Considering my birthday's on Dec. 9th, it really wasn't an idle idea. I really do want to do it, but I'm not willing to lose my presents over it. Well...I really am just going to have to think about it.
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally got a reply email from Erin!!!!! ;D YAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! *feels almost...silly getting this worked up over it* And my YKYLHTMW's are up on her site! *giggles manically and bounces around*
