Made into a television series by Hoods Drifters Studio, Drifters is a jam-packed thriller filled with samurai-like action. Whats makes this manga anime series stand out is its element of ‘parallel universe.’
As the name suggests, Drifters feature characters from a different timeline, who find themselves ‘drifted’ into an unknown world. The story brings out their survival struggles, their fight against the elements which are a threat to mankind known as the ‘Ends.’
Season 1 has 12 episodes, followed by 3 OVA (Original Video Animation).
The Storyline of Drifters Season 2
At the beginning of the first episode itself, we are introduced to the main character, Shimazu Toyohisa, combating his enemies in the Battle of Sekigahara. Although he wins the fight, he is severely bruised in the process. In no time, he finds himself in the middle of an aisle, completely white in color, with seemingly never-ending rows of doors. He is pulled into an alternate world before he even reacts.
In his journey, Shimazu meets other warriors, just like him, and they form a clan of their own to stand against Ends.
THE MAN IN THE DRIVING SEAT
Murasaki, the man responsible for sending our protagonist into the fantasy world, seems to be in control of everything. Soon, Shimazu realizes there are others too who have been transported. All by the man, Murasaki.
