Hellsing is an older adaptation of the Hellsing manga. The anime does not stick to the original manga story and becomes a bit of a mess in the execution of its story.

Hellsing Ultimate sticks to manga and has superior quality in terms of story, narration, and animation.

Perhaps the only aspect that makes Hellsing (2001) better than Hellsing Ultimate is its magnificent soundtrack. The soundtrack of Ultimate is good, but it gets nowhere near to the soundtrack in the original.

5. Conclusion

There isn’t a specific watch order for Hellsing, although we recommend you watch Ultimate first.

 Hellsing Ultimate is every that the original couldn’t be. The characters are more fleshed out, the pacing is consistent, and the action is superior.

Watch the Specials after completing Ultimate.
