Drifters Season 2 Will Premiere In 20XX


Those who watched the first season of Drifters till the end are aware of the fact that the anime has got its second season. However, the series creators didn't announce any specific release date. The only thing we know for sure is that the second season of the series will be back sometime in 20XX, according to the official announcement. However, this statement seems to be quite foggy, since it could be 2099, for instance. Of course, we are not serious about that matter. However, the world of anime follows its own rules. Many shows are updated very rarely. Therefore, sometimes it could take over ten years before the fans could have to enjoy the next season of their favorite anime series. Let's attempt to figure out when Drifters could return for the next season.

Many media outlets predicted that the anime returns for Season 2 in 2017. However, now is the end of September. Thus, the odds for a fall premiere seem to be ghostly. But, the announcement still could happen in October or November. We rather forecast the premiere in early 2018 (or even in the next fall). On the other hand, the Hoods Drifters Studio had enough time to produce another installment of Drifters, given the fact that the first season concluded last December. At the same time, it's worth noting that the series debuted in October 2016. As a result, the fall release is very possible. Since there has been no official announcement of the exact release date, we track down all the data from the official sources, to inform you on the subject.

Drifters started off on October 7, 2016, on Tokyo MX. Later, GYT, MBC, GBS, and other Japanese television networks picked up the anime to broadcast. Hoods Entertainment served as the developer of the series. FUNimation acted as a licensor of the series in North America. The anime series is available for online video streaming on Crunchyroll. The first season of the anime was incredibly popular among the viewers. On MyAnimeList, Drifters have a score of 8.07/10 based on ~ 91,500 votes. On IMDb, the series holds a rating of 7.9 out of 10 stars. Season 1 of Drifters consisted of twelve episodes.

What Is Drifters Anime About?

The story focuses on Shimazu Toyohisa, a medieval warrior who found himself amidst a white corridor along the endless doors in front of a bespectacled man, waiting for him. The mysterious man sent Toyohisa into one of these doors. As a result, he woke up in another world. Thus, Toyohisa found himself among the other warriors in a group called "Drifters."

The world he came in consists of various fabulous races. Among them, there are elves, dwarves, etc. This parallel universe is at war. A group of warriors known as the "Ends" is trying to eliminate the Drifters alongside with other humans. The Ends' army consists of many dangerous creatures, such as giants and dragons, which wipe out all the obstacles on their way.

As turned out, the only power able to resist the Ends is the "Octobrist Organization," whose members, native mages, attempt to assemble a group of Drifters able to repel the attacks of the Ends.

What Do We Expect In Season 2 of Drifters?

The second season of Drifters will depict the continuation of the collision between the Drifters and the Ends. During this season, we may figure out who stands behind the Drifters, and how his magical abilities allow them to appear at the various battlefields. Also, we will learn who controls the Black King. Since there was no official synopsis for the next season, we're waiting for the additional data.

On The Subject Of The Possible Release Date

In general, we share the common opinion that Drifters Season 2 might happen this October. However, as mentioned above, there have been no official words on the subject on the official website of the series, as well as on the Twitter page of the franchise. It seems that the series creators aren't ready for such an early release. Therefore, we suppose that the winter release date of the 2nd season is most likely. The worst scenario is that Drifters Season 2 will premiere next October. In any case, we're waiting for the official announcement. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject.
