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.

Drifters could be a fun action packed series if the comedy is like previous samurai characters in various comedy animes.
ep.1 is an extended half of OVA, i have been waiting for the series since 2012 :d


-the smooth, the suave, and the shrewd
Oh...I actually started watching this. Think its pretty cool so far.

QUOTE (franzoir @ Oct 19 2016,7:38 AM)this. Think its pretty cool so fari'm preferring it than the first eps of Hellsing (TV and OVAs), ep.3 became even more epic introducing antagonistic 'Ends'... also many drifters left xD that crazy Naoshi Kanno rules, lately is rare to see gory animes alike airing uncensored

to save Nobunaga like that only means that Jeane... er I mean Ranmaru now has a chance with him now by a viewer standpoint.
funny to recall how romantic both historical figures are seen, in Nobunaga the Fool but here they'll meet as enemies... also by Hitler's portrait of ep.6 is clear its hellsing link, would be awesome a crossover with Alucard as new drifter :lol:
