Historical Anime Mayhem

     Has anyone heard of or seen Drifters yet? It’s a crazy fantasy action historical anime based in another world. Currently Funimation is producing it in English dub and it airs on Crunchyroll in subtitles. The animation and art is great and super appealing to the eye.  It’s a great, funny, bloody, twist on our history. I love it and would love to hear others take on the show. It’s directed by Kenichi Suzuki, who also did JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. The story and manga was created by Kouta Hirano; who’s other major success was Hellsing.

      The show is about historical figures from our world being transported to another dimension right before their death. Figures from Japan, Europe, Asia, and America and all timelines. In this new dimension they are perfectly alive and have all the experience and knowledge of their lives. This world grants them abilities beyond the norm and there seems to be a reason they are all here.  Check it out and let me know what you think. Leave a comment and follow me for more talk.
