Hmm... well although the manga history was kinda cliched as well, at the very least it's far better than the attempt of a history the anime is. I hope they get it right this time...

Erementar Gerad is a series my sis started downloading, I watched 2 or 3 chapters of it.... although it is cliched beyond avail, I guess it is kinda watchable because of the funny trio. (man why can't they make original series anymore, except for Fantastic Children, Monster and Marimite everything that is comming out just seem to be a product of the wash rinse and repeat effect... and even FC seems to go downhill now that everything is explained... well I guess we still have to see who Thoma actually is :p)

I guess I won't be able to see something that tops my favorite (Haibane Renmei) for a while ... now if they made an anime series out of 20th Century Boy :D

I very much doubt it. It's likely it will cover the same ground that was covered up to the invasion of Hellsing. After that the anime and the manga split quite drasticly. Hell even the invasion was set up differently. There are no 'chipped' Vampires in the Manga. It all gets really wierd when the ****s turn up.

I've read the manga from volume 1 to 7, and I must say that past the part where Anderson and Alucard meet near the train, it differs completly... as for the chips, there
are some but they're just kinds of spywares

The chips as mentioned where not devices to make vampires, but devices to track them. The bulk of the force in the invasion were ghouls.
Vampires gain fantastic power each time they drink the blood to death of a person, but the more human they are (like in the White Wolf Vampire world) the weaker they are and they have an upper limit on thier power. Alucard being pretty close to the original Vampire (I'd imagine) and having drunk crap loads of people to death is virtualy immortal with his powers unlocked. Celes, being sired by Alucard is also pretty close to the source, meaning that once she does drink someone to death, she really kicks ass.

She already kicks ass, especially when she takes a revenge for her "boyfriend" in volume 7 :)

Yes, when she drinks his blood: she becomes ninja powerful.

Yeah but nah, ninjas try to be stealthy... with all the blood and flesh she puts on the walls I doubt it's hard to spot her ^^
