Drifters will receive a second season. Upon the release of the final episode, it was announced the anime will get a 2nd season. At the end of the final episode, a second season was announced with the message “See You Again, Tokyo 20XX”. The release date for the 2nd season is not yet known. However, when the release of the Blu-Ray box set for Season 1 was announced, the official Drifters twitter account announced that “we will hold an event on April 2, 2017 and continue with Drifters!”. Could this be a hint to when season 2 will be released?
The first season of Drifters premiered on October 7, 2016 for a total of 12 episodes. The anime was one of the more popular series released during the fall 2016 anime season.
Shimazu Toyohisa, whilst involved at the Battle of Sekigahara, manages to mortally wound Ii Naomasa, but is critically wounded in the process. As he walks from the field broken and bleeding, Toyohisa finds himself transported to a corridor of doors, where a bespectacled man at a desk waits for him. This man, Murasaki, sends Toyohisa into the nearest door where he wakes up in another world. There, Toyohisa meets other great warriors like him who have been transported as well, to be part of a group known as “Drifters.”
