Roughly a year ago, a Bluray box set consisting of Hellsing Ultimate I-V was released in Japan.
As some of you may know, animation was originally handled by Satelight, but it changed hands to MADhouse starting with OVA V. This box set introduced an interesting change: OVAs I-IV were completely remade with new artwork and lighting changes, as well as some palette darkening and softening so the episodes look more like the style of OVA V onwards.
My question is: will FUNimation be releasing a dubbed version of this set? The difference between the original OVA and the retouched version is striking, and I think it looks a lot better for setting the tone of the series, especially when it comes to OVA I, which just looked far too bright for a Hellsing production.
It seems like the reworked version is the "true" release, and while I love my collection of Limited Editions for OVA I-IV as it is, I would love to see the new version on my shelf even more.
