Kodansha Comics publishes an English language version of the Drifting Dragons manga, and describes the story of the series as follows:
The draking vessel Quin Zaza soars through the skies, hunting dragons that hide in the clouds. A single big catch means full coffers and all the meat they can eat, while failure means an empty wallet and an even emptier stomach. Join us as we log the crew’s grand adventures, chasing dreams of the sky, dragons, and gourmet cooking!
The Drifting Dragons TV anime will broadcast on Fuji TV's "+Ultra" programming block beginning in January of 2020, and the series will also be streamed exclusively on Netflix.
