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.
