I am curious about the woman "Easy" and her Offscourings, who seem to be plucked from various eras of history as the Drifters are. I was nervous when I saw the banner "Makoto" among the Black King's armies. I am a fan of the Shinsengumi, so I would prefer not to see them at odds with Toyohisa and the others. Then again, if they are at odds, it is possible the Shinsengumi will switch to the Drifters' side eventually.
Since they are fleeing, I assume they will meet up somehow at the elven village. It is a curious group indeed, though those two members of the Wild Gang Bunch, as outlaws, seem the most out of place compared to the likes of Scipio Africanus, Hannibal, and Oda Nobunaga.

So, ch9 out, its been a month? and the next ch on Jan30th, work faster mangaka.
WTH famous ppl have been appearing now, still dont get how that russian women named nomanova is supposed to fight?(read it in wiki, not skilled in fighting at all).
Yea I like Shinsengumi too man, it started with Saitou in Samurai X
One more thing, these off-scourings are drifters too right? The name's diff but they'r in a way drifters too like the good guys, but they'r with the Dark King.
For now the bad guys side feels heavy with these powerful fighters on their side
Loved the chapter, keep em coming. Lots of new character which hopefully our heroes will have the opportunity ti rip to shreds. To bad we didn't actually see our heroes.
I'm more curious about those other Offscourings in the Dark Kings army, cause we have seen 2 coat of arms, whose representatives havent been displayed yet (by that i mean the last 2 frames of ch8). I think one of them might display the Habsburg monarchy of old austria, but you can never know
i'm still confused with this whole manga series, but i'll keep reading it.
http://www.onemanga.com/Drifters/9/11/). Have read that this Rasputin was still alive after being stabbed, poisoned, shot 3 times, castrated, and thrown in the ice cold river. Rasputin was also main antagonist in the 1st Hellboy movie.

new ch out, not much development, hopefully next ch out 3 heroes will get involved in the fight
Great art is all about i have to say about it sofar
But it seems like it'll get better
My impression of the manga is that it is nowhere near as good as hellsing was. Hellsing was pure win from chapter one, this manga is taking more time to make a shred of sense. While it is reasonably good and has potential, I do think it needs to improve.
I think it is going to be the same deal as with hellsing, kouta's previous work. Hellsing had a measly 95 chapters, many of which were not even as long as a weekly manga and it was serialized over 10 years. I don't expect more than 8 chapters of drifter a year as it is given the precedents.
chapter 12 is out!
I think this is the best chapter yet, mostly for what the elves were told at the end. Just like that and they are already ready to go to war -at least that was implied lol-.
Chapter 13 ... http://www.1000manga.com/Drifters/13/01/ ... it's getting interesting ...
Just caught up with all the chapters, pretty fascinating stuff. Theory proposal in the spoiler tag.
Great story so far. That Black King character looks fricking awesome; I wonder what other powers/abilities he/she possesses apart from the healing one that was revealed recently to us. I agree with kkck; it's certainly not on the same level as Hellsing but nevertheless I like what I've read/seen thus far.
