I’ve never reviewed merchandise before so it’s slightly refreshing to write this…I haven’t seen much product reviews on the Hellsing Ultimate Journal which I got from Amazon a few days ago for 8 bucks. It came in the post today, and I got it because…well, I’m a big Hellsing fan and I saw the journal and I was like ‘Hey, a journal…oh wait it’s not just a journal, it’s a HELLSING journal! Neat!’ so I got it and so here is a review on it.
Of course you can probably go on youtube to see if anyone’s made a video on it or if you have a friend who owns this journal then this post won’t really help you much.

HMPH If I took over production I’d know what I’d do. Maybe they should let the product merchandising and designing to fans because fans know what they want!!!
