Total seasons of drifters:
I first got hooked on Drifters when a friend gave me a link to a manga written and illustrated by Kouta Hirano. So I was a fan of the story even before watching the anime.
Although the manga has 6 volumes and is still releasing more. Drifters only have one anime adaptation. Hoods Drifters Studio produced the anime. Twelve episodes and 3 OVAs aired from October 7, 2016, to 2018.
Drifter Season 2 release date:
Well, if you’ve seen the anime before, you can assume a hint from the last episode. Fans have assured that the series will return for another season. But no official announcement remains.
Since the first season spanned 3 volumes of the manga, there are only 3 volumes left for the second season. Thus, the source material may not be enough to produce the following season. But the good news is that the production team and author are both hard at writing more content.
How can we figure out whether there will be another season of drifters or not?
Only a few factors predict whether the series will have another season. First, the source material is an essential factor. As I mentioned before, let’s move on to the next factor.
Popularity is another factor. The IMDB rating for season 1 was 7.7/10, and according to My Anime List followers. The show rated 7.9/10 and ranked 6412. 205,365 followers rated this.
As we can see, the show was a hit among the viewers and is still in demand. It is more likely that the season will come soon.

Although more than five years have passed since then, there has been no development. The announcement made at the end of the Season 1 finale. “Continued Season Two. See you again. Tokyo 20XX. Sayonara.” Now it can mean every year. Even though the show has renewed. Fans may have to wait quite a while to see their favorite masked vigilante back on screen.

What is unique about drifters?
An interesting fact is that most of the main characters of this anime were famous warriors of Japan. The Warlords, archers, and many other warriors from various wars are dead in the current world. Were summoned to this world war of another dimension after their death.
So, even in the afterlife, they fought against evildoers. Even though the anime depicted brutality from humanity to dwarves or Konks.
