There has been a sale of more than 15,000 copies. DVD/Blu-Ray discs contribute to around 15-20% of the revenue for an anime series. This may sound un-profitable and also made many animes a failure.

No Release date for the show is available as of now. Even though the show has been renewed for a second season in 2016, no development has happened that has taken the series forward. The main reason for the delay could be the lack of content.
Season one covered 3 volumes of the manga. and only 3 volumes are left for the second season. Hence, the source material may not be enough to produce the second season, But the amazing news is the makers and the writers both are working hard to write more content. Now, there are only six volumes. We can assume that by early 2022, there will be enough material for producing Drifters Season 2.
Despite the show’s renewal, we may still need to wait for new volumes to release before we can expect season 2 to begin production. We can rest assured that the manga’s author is still hard at work as new chapters were released in January 2020.
The great fact is most of the anime characters we’ve seen in Drifters are from Japan’s history and mythological characters. So viewers see, anime is full of real-life legends, and this will be the voice cast –
- Takahiro Sakurai as Abe no Haruakira
- Kane Ito as Easy
- Tomokazu Sugita as Saint-Germi
- Kenji Fukuda as Alest
- Naoya Uchida as Oda Nobunaga
The plot of the show follows the story of Shimazu Toyohisa, who is from the middle ages but is transported to a modern-day parallel world. When he wakes up, he finds himself a corridor that of hundreds of doors on either side. Soon enough they discover that this new world is full of a lot of amazing beats and people. Along the way, Shimazu also finds a lot of warriors who join him. All these warriors together figure out that this modern-day world is full of tyrants and is determined to get rid of it and free the people.
The interesting fact is most of the main characters in this anime were popular warriors of Japan, Warlords, archers and so many other fighters from different wars who were known to be dead in the present world were summoned to this world war of another dimension after their death.
So, basically, even in the afterlife, they were battling against the evildoers. Although the anime depicted brutality from humankind to the dwarfs or the Ends eliminating humans, the light humorous dialogues always made the seriousness of the situation lighter. And You can say that the anime had a historical background as well since it showed Japan’s ancient warriors and culture.
Many fans assume that the Black King, who is the leader of the Ends, is Jesus Christ. they think that the marks in his hands are from crucifixion and he has the healing power just like Jesus. Personally, I think he is just a fictional character.
