Synopsis

Shimazu Toyohisa, whilst involved at the Battle of Sekigahara, manages to mortally wound Ii Naomasa, but is critically wounded in the process. As he walks from the field broken and bleeding, Toyohisa finds himself transported to a corridor of doors, where a bespectacled man at a desk waits for him. This man, Murasaki, sends Toyohisa into the nearest door where he wakes up in another world. There, Toyohisa meets other great warriors like him who have been transported as well, to be part of a group known as "Drifters."

This is just a preview! (So take the rating with a grain of salt, as this is ment to just leave you with a good first impression. A first course if you will, that might get you hungry enough to watch the main course in action.)

Did you enjoy Hellsing Ultimate? Do you like loads of blood? Are you interested in freakishly awesome characters, that don't need 20 episodes in order to become badass? Well then what are you waiting for, "Drifters" already has 6 episodes out!

Story(so far):
The anime is about historical characters or figures that participate in a bloody game of killing and survival, by read more

Regardless of animation, story, setting or even genre, what truly separates an ok anime from a great one is having interesting character, and Drifters has been quite a let down.

Before diving a bit onto the review, let's explain the premise: in a fantasy-style world (think Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings), a war between humans - the current rulers of the world - and the "Ends" - who want to destroy everything - is happening. Two mysterious characters are bringing "Heroes" of our world in order to tip the war one way or the other. These "Heroes" are called Drifters, and, as expected, read more

Drifters - "Battle in a brand new world war."

That could be all I need to write since, as far as I've seen, the show has lived up to that thesis grandly.

But lets talk about it a little more just for giggles.

This show was a bit of a wildcard for me personally, given that I haven't read the manga or seen either of the directors crowning achievements (Hellsing and the latest iteration of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), but after the synopsis piqued my interest, and the Promotional Video's came out, I was sold. Further Drifters is being produced by a studio that has not read more

Tl;dr: If you like action anime, or/and if you really liked Hellsing Ultimate or/and Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, go watch Drifters.

The full preview is down below. I assume you've read the basic synopsis on the MAL page. If you haven't, the basic premise of the show is that different historical figures (mostly warriors/generals/soldiers) are transported to a medieval fantasy-esque land with creatures like elves and dragons where they embroil themselves in a local conflict.


Drifters is based on a manga written by Kouta Hirono, the creator of the Hellsing series. Its director is Kenichi Suzuki, the man responsible for directing anime such as Jojo's Bizzare Adventure: read more
