*** Further, as we saw in the orphanage, Anderson already had plenty of children to raise. A man's only got so many hours in a day.



* If Heinkel could heal her arm and leg cut by Walter, then why did she decide to keep her face scarred?
** For the same reason Anderson has the scar on his face; those injuries were sustained ''prior'' to becoming regenerators.

* Why did we as a fandom pass up the excellent opportunity to nickname Alucard's feminine form "GALucard"?!

** Because it'd be the same as Girlycard basically.

*** The ones who didn't do the research were some of the translators (not all, imagine that. The version from Spain has her as Lady Hellsing) who used Anime version as basis for translations. It's understandable why they decided that, but I wish they wouldn't have. You see, in the ''actual'' Japanese manga, the only ones addressing Integra as "Sir" (??) were Enrico Maxwell and Alexander Anderson. They did this while they were delivering their insults in Volumes 1 and 2. Hint, people: that 'title' was meant to be an insult. Integra's ''real title'' (as she's addressed most of the time in formal situations) is ? (pronounced kyou), which is gender neutral and roughly means minister of state. Thus, men are called lords and maybe sirs (but it's higher ranked than mere sir knights, we're talking about knights who are secretaries of state); while for women, the title should be translated as ladies or, brace yourselves for the ultimate shocker, ''dames''. Now, the staff in charge of the TV series and the OVA are a different story. Believe it or not, the show is run by the same guy (the producer Ueda), so he takes a couple of liberties with the story. I'm standing up to defend the author because he gets the blame for a glaring oversight of the translators, who were probably using just the fanon to be consistent. Know that in the manga, this Sir mistake is only used as deliberate insult and Integra's real title has nothing to do with that nonsense.

** Anderson is a sworn Catholic priest and takes his responsibilities very seriously. One of the requirements is a vow of celibacy, which means he never had and would never have children.

** This is more or less explicitly stated by Alucard. He's lonely. Essentially he saw an excuse that Integra couldn't or at least wouldn't argue with and took it.

* Why exactly did Alucard turn Sera? Let's say in that scene of the first OVA, the vampire holding Sera hostage lost his nerve, through Sera to the ground and started running, only to get killed by Alucard. Then Sera would have opened fire on Alucard, would he have just killed her like any other mook or did he have a reason to turn her?

*** My understanding is that the Hellsing organization had to fall to a male heir. With an attempted coup in the recent past it was easier to legally change her gender than the organization's bylaws. She is female physically, biologically, and she identifies as female, but legally she is male and she chooses to present so butch as an exaggerated performance like a drag king.

She is essentially taunting the pompous old men by saying, "I'm a better man than any of you, and I'm a little girl."

*If Father Anderson has children, will his abilities (or at least regeneration powers) be passed on to them? Anyone answer???
