    Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    Hey guys thought I would open up a new thread for a recently started ongoing manga series called Drifters(you would be familiar with it if you were a fan of Hellsing) by Hirano Kouta. Anyways their artwork is really similar and makes me remember the hellsing days.

    http://www.onemanga.com/Drifters/

    Plot-:
    Shimazu Toyohisa whilst involved at Battle of Sekigahara is depicted as the one who critically injured Ii Naomasa (though actual sources say that stray fire was the cause), who then retreats. As Toyohisa walks from the field broken and bleeding, he is transported to corridor of doors with man at a desk in the center. While he is stunned by this, he sucked into the nearest door and wakes up in another world, meeting others like him who have been transported, referred to as "Drifters"
    (yeah yeah I copied it from wikipedia)

    Well this manga looks to be exciting though only 3 chapters have been released yet. So feel free to discuss.

    *page turn*

    Not to hate on the series or anything. I think the mangaka is pretty decent and I liked Hellsing anyways, but gosh the way the dialogue got edited makes me want to face palm.

    That's definitely the purpose. You're getting hooked up because of those questions. People are sent to places with the purpose to save the world (that's what I make up thanks to that leader/observer's words). I like it and I expect it to be answered after this upcoming battle. The people making this ruckus in the village are probably the reason why they became drifters. The art is great imo. Drifters caught me and I definitely look forward to more
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    Re: Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    I just read the 4 chapters just now, and yes the art remind me a lot with Hellsing. Especially the blood >.< I guess drifters are those guys who do battle and usually often are famous ppl. But maybe there are also drifters who are normal ppl.

    I expect no less from Hirano Kouta, his new series will be the same kick ass like Hellsing. It just that he is really lazy (something that he clearly admit) and if we are lucky we get 24p chapter per month, if we are not, expect a 10p chapter >.<

    I am not even sure if he intends to finish Hellsing: The Dawn

    Re: [NEW SERIES] Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    I hope he doesn't get lazy on this one, after Hellsing we need something even better or as good as it.


    One more chapter up guys. I guess the statement Alternate Warring Era gives a clue as to the gathering of these warriors from diff era's. Still no sign of the antagonist though.

    Re: [NEW SERIES] Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    yup i have just read cp5. OMG even though its only 16p this chapter is quiet a badass.. I smile a bit when the 3 comparing their age lol.

    It seems like all the famous people from all over the world got drifted to that place, and the local ppl are stuck on their war about claiming territory?

    Re: [NEW SERIES] Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    The series is so slow, I have to wait for 5 or 6 chapters to be able to give a proper opinion about it
    It seems to be based on a "what if" interrogation: what if well-known warriors can have a match together, who will win? Oh, that looks like a question directly taken from manga forums It looks also like a Role Playing Game manga.
    In the first chapters the author takes a lot of time to present the historical figures that are now the heroes of the story. It is hard for me to follow the author in his re-visiting of the history. I don't know anything about these characters or these different periods in history, so I can't find any enjoyment with what the author wants to do and explore in the history.
    I also wonder if the characters are part of common knowledge in Japan.

    So, what can I enjoy in this manga?
    The colorful personality of the protagonists, so far they were interesting. The concept could turn out to be cool, but I do not know so far.
    Art appeals to me, but battles were not dynamic. So, I still continue to read it, hoping historical facts and digressions won't burden the flow of the story.

    Re: Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    well another chapter up

    seems like some sort of mystical place where the drifters aka the famous people or people who are good warriors and strategists, end up while being close to death. The place is inhabited by other mythical creatures and humans, with humans most probably controlling them due to wining some war long ago.
    Anyway seems the humans dont like these drifters and likewise, since they are evil
    Still the whole person behind this situation seems to be the person who put these drifters in that place itself, the person who was sitting in a chair and first met them when they were transported to an empty corridor before being drifted to the place they are in now


    chapter 8 up
    The last panel with the side text looks interesting

    Re: Drifters by Hirano Kouta

    Manga seems interesting, I could see a future for it. Don't think it will be nearly as good as helsing was but I would expect a very decent reading from it.
    I will give my opinion on what has been going on in general but I will put it in spoiler tags.
    Spoiler:  Serious spoiler ahead, careful show
