Drifters – Episodes 1-12 [Complete]

Originally Aired: Fall 2016

Now here’s a show that is what I would call the definition of a “mixed bag”. Creator Kouta Hirano’s story of time-displaced warriors waging a battle-royale in another dimension has all of Hellsing‘s style and bloody slickness, but the storytelling and characterization leave a lot to be desired.  The wacky humor that worked so well in Hirano’s most famous work just doesn’t acquit itself well in Drifters, and most of the characters fail to live up to their legendary namesakes. It wasn’t a bad show, but it could have been so much better than it ended up being. Joan of Arc was pretty badass, though.
