I like the looks of every character in this sires so far but to me the first episode felt a little slow. Not much has really happened though it seems its setting up to a larger battle and the trailer shows a large cast of characters so I am seeing it being a bit slower in the start until we know everyone. I personally am really looking to know whats is up with Joan of Arc seeing as she is my personal favorite warrior in history.

So... !@#$ yeah drifters kicks ass! the action is brutal and the art is awesome (nothing less from the creator of Hellsing Kouta Hirano sensei! the corridor scene was just surreal to me dude, I wish I'd continued to read the manga but I was tight on cash and dark horse was releasing the volumes when they felt liked it (that what it felt like to me anyways lol) I am curious but is this the same team that gave us Ultimate Hellsing?


It's a different studio but a lot of the same creative staff as Hellsing Ultimate. Same animation director, same script-writer, etc.



really? I figured cause of the similarities (not that its a bad thing) but anyways thanks!

I love the art style (and gore) and how quick it got into the action.

I also love how they freak out at each other trying to explain who they are..... then pluck a bunch of duck feathers to eat together .

The concept isn't exactly new, but the "historic warriors" gathering idea is fun.

Why did they have to shove comedy into it imo it lost points because of that. Still good animation with historical characters, that's enough to continue watching.

I'll give it a couple more episodes, but that first one was just a mess.

From the headache inducing opening scenes that bounced up and down, to the off-the-wall humor scenes that just did not fit the rest of the show, looks like this show can't make up it's mind on what it's going to be.

I might like it if they stop the wacky comedy stuff. Be a serious action/adventure or be a screwball comedy. Just stop mixing those two up, please.

Guess we'll see.


That's sort of the mangaka's style.
I haven't read Drifters, but I've read Hellsing. Hellsing would have extremely serious and gory scenes, then you'd have one of those goofy humor scenes.


Thanks for the heads-up. I won't waste any more time on this then.

Has NBC/Universal always been in anime production and I just never noticed?

They used another logo before for anime, I don't remember which one though. I think the first time I noticed the Universal intro was with Arslan Senki S1 in 2015.

Episode 2

So much for saying that anybody that doesn't speak Japanese must die. In the meantime, the elves are being punished for helping Drifters by Aram and gang, which is a crime as only the Organization is allowed to help them. So the field is burned, and Toyohisa slaughters everybody, and for being such a hot shot Aram wasn't so tough. Toyohisa leaves Aram alive for the elves to take revenge against. That was so brutal, but that's what those bastards get for treating those elves that way.

The accents might take me some time to get used to.

Very glad to see that they kept the uncensored violence though to bring the show to its full potential. The OP song is also quite catchy imo with style..

This episode was much better then the last. We got to now more about the new world the Drifters are inhabiting and how dim humans are oppressed. I never read the manga but episode 2 has me hooked now I want to see what else is going on. The art style is also freaking awesome and the OP is a great music video.

So with ep 2, all of the OVA stuff have been covered now, so glad the episode reassured the airing season will have all the glorious stylized gore. Gah just liek the action style so much. And great OP.

That shot is amazing and pretty much sums up how visceral this show is
