Hellsing: Ultimate I is the first installment of Hellsing: Ultimate. It was originally released in Japan on February 10, 2006 and released in English on December 5, 2006 by Funimation Entertainment, under the licensing of Geneon USA.
Hellsing Ultimate starts in the past, ten years ago. Integra Hellsing's uncle, Richard Hellsing, jealous of his niece becoming the head of the Hellsing organization, hunts her down, attempting to kill her. Integra, fearing for her life, flees to the bottom of the Hellsing mansion, where her "salvation" is. Richard and two other men follow her down there, and in an attempt to kill her by shooting her in the shoulder, accidentally awakens Alucard, who then proceeds to kill Richard's men. Integra takes advantage of this and manages to kill her uncle. After this, Alucard becomes Integra's servant. Integra is now the last remaining descendant of the Hellsing bloodline.
In present day England, Alucard is called to duty to eradicate a vampire and his ghouls. However, a police girl named Seras Victoria is gravely injured in the process, and upon giving her a choice to live or die, Alucard turns her into his vampire servant. Later, on a mission to hunt down a vampire in the town of Badrick in Northern Ireland, Alucard meets and fights Father Alexander Anderson for the first time.
