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."

One for the guys that like the whole history or war and the art of war kinda thing.

Think back through all the alternate universe/ timeline plots you've read and you'll probably realize they all have one thing in common...it definitely has something to do with the modern world. Indeed, whether it is a ninja arriving in modern time or some kid who went to the demon world, there's always a link to our daily life so we can relate to it better... Drifter throws that out the window

Without spoiling or going in too deep, Drifters is about a bunch of warriors from all culture read more

So this is the manga that Kouta Hirano is working on now that Hellsing is over.

Okay, so right there, you should realize some things it will have: Blood, Violence...and, well, more violence.

Although this manga is incredibly weird, it's a fix for hellsing fans now that hellsing is over. Personally, I like it. Kouta Hirano's signature art style is as weird as usual, and there is a serious dose of dark humor.

There are not that many chapters as yet, so it's hard for me to really say anything about the story. Clearly it is going somewhere, but at the moment I'm read more

Drifters manga, first time I read this manga made me into fan quickly. I love the fact that war generals and famous bodies are in this manga and fighting off each other! even the fact that they are all great heroes.

If I were to compare this Masterpiece of a Manga to a game, This would be totally a DOTA or Defence of the Ancient type.

But due to our lazy Author Kouta Hirana, Readers and Soon-to-be readers will have to achingly wait for chapters to be out in raws more so being translated but LUCKILY, a new scan group started releasing newer chapters already!! this made read more

Historical characters clash in a new world that has been over run by humans. The author shows the chaos and insanity of the characters with a unique art style. The art is very well done with thick lines and dark backgrounds that match the atmosphere of a time of war and darkness. The main character is very likable and very similar to Natsu in the sense of OP and personality, unless you include the way he wants to kill people for their heads. The story is somewhat predictable but in a lot of ways unexpected. One thing that bothered read more
