The announcement was made after the final episode, teasing that the anime will be back in 20XX. The unstated year is a little jab at the slow output of the mangaka, Kouta Hirano. There was a two year gap between volumes 4 and 5. Who knows if there will be another year break between volumes.
Drifters is a violent take on the isekai genre. The story follows Shimazu Toyohisa, a samurai who is taken to a fantasy world before dying. Shimazu becomes a "Drifter," a group of warriors who battle the "Ends".
Drifters was produced by Hoods Drifters Studio, which was setup specifically for the Drifters anime project. So far, the anime has adapted up until the midway point of volume 4. We might wait a while for season 2, or the anime could go into original territory.
Are you excited for Drifters season 2?
I really like to look at the darker side of things, like a shadow following you at night...or maybe I'm just trying too hard? Anyways, Persona is my life!
