Despite the Ends’ attack on Verlina being successfully repelled, the war has not yet ended. With the monster armies regrouping, the Black King tightens his grasp on the already conquered territory. New conflicts erupt all across Orte, as its remaining forces struggle to retain control over long-oppressed demi-human races.

While Ends grow more potent each day, Toyohisa Shimazu remains unconscious after heavy injuries suffered during the Battle of Verlina. Facing enemies on every side, humanity’s fate is still on a knife's edge.

I'm going to make this brief.

Did you like the series Drifters?
Would you like to watch some more Drifters?

If you answered yes, then you probably should watch this OVA/Specials/Extra Episodes/whatever. It's largely more of the same, continuing the story and revealing more things about certain characters, particularly the main villain. The story still doesn't reach a conclusion and just kind of abruptly ends. But if you just want more Drifters, here it is.

And if you didn't like Drifters...

Then don't watch this. You probably won't enjoy this either. Or give it a try anyway, you crazy lunatics.

I gave this one 8, even though I gave the first season a 9. Actually, it is very good, and it is just the continuation of the first season, however until this 13th episode we never heard anything shallow like "I don't lose hope on humanity." What? When the topic has come to this? I am talking about what Abe no Seimei said to the Black King. There was no need for such a speech. I was watching this series as a seinen but a shounen-like scene appeared out of nowhere. Couldn't the reason for fighting and resistance just be the main instinct of all read more
