Inspired by Bram Stoker's Dracula, Hellsing finds Integra Hellsing, descendant of the famous vampire hunter, now running an entire agency based on the mission of her family line called Hellsing. Hellsing specifically protects Great Britain and the Anglican Church from vampires and other evil, undead problem causers. Working for the agency is Alucard, a renegade vampire who fights against his own kind. He is the most powerful warrior on Hellsing's side but is no noble hero, and fights for his own reasons. Hellsing has been praised for its soundtrack, which incorporates elements of punk and jazz. Much of the subtext in the series is devoted to whether or not Alucard is actually the ancient Count Dracula, and fans have spent much time debating over the validity of this theory and the hints dropped throughout the course of the series to support it.
