(reads all the backed-up strips)

Okay, so we're officially caught-up on the story. Got a few opinions:

Seras was right to restrain herself. She might have injured Ann's human staff (you remembered what she did to the ghouls during the Valentine Brother's attack).

And second, I really don't think Integra should worry about looking infirmed in the sight of said employees.

I dont know what this 'deus ex machina' you speak of is, but I can take that it is Shine. I am also aware that the weapon that pip might be trying to use is one of the hand guns that we've seen him hold into the the armory a few pages back. but in all honesty, if regular or silver tipped ammo was that fragile, that the valentine brothers could easily have over taken Hellsing if they just triggered the sprinkler system and waited around a few before their assault.

As far as weapon facts go; "I cant fire because the ammo is too damp" is a major flaw here.

According to Wikipedia: "A deus ex machina (IPA: [ˈdeɪʌs ɛks ˈmakʰɪna], literally "god from the machine") is a plot device in which a person or thing appears "out of the blue" to help a character to overcome a seemingly insolvable difficulty."

In other words, it's the magic that allowed Rip and Dandy to walk away without getting a bullet in them and the humans to escape unharmed.
Gundam Wing has hot guys, kick-ass women and mechs. Hellsing has hot guys, kick-ass women and guns. ^_^ Ah, the joys of anime.

Is "I don't officially exist" slang for "I'm not based on an existing charecter"?

Well, at least there was some mention of Gunsmith Cats in the strip.

I have a feeling I know who made the custom guns now,

though if they needed a ride to get out of the area, Bean Bandit might have been the guy to hire. Minnie is not too hot of a driver compared to him or rally.

Rippy's grinning because she knows the kind of punishment Major and Doc will have for him when they get back. Millennium doesn't tolerate failure well. She's enjoying the thought of his future screams. :twisted:

One problem with Bean - he'd probably charge about $5,000 a head!

Turn your comedy sensors on next time you surf the Internet. You'll come off less obnoxious that way.

Heh! One of these days I'll record myself singing this tune (I need to get my computer mic working). Then there'll be an AMV version possible! XD

The line was cliched, reflecting banal word skills devoid of wit. He chose the line either due to incapability of trying to rejoin my comment with something amusing or to goad me with a dismissive insult by being deliberately vulgar. No matter which, the comment contributed nothing of value and was wholly unnecessary.
