Wasted potential

This series absolutely sounds like it has the ingredients for a great and exciting story, but unfortunately it squanders them on nonsensical gags and idiotic motivations for characters. Instead of putting historical characters in interesting fantasy scenarios, to create great action, it uses them as set ups for unfunny jokes and stroking the ego of Japanese famous historical figures.

Where's the anime for this! I want to see it so here take my money! Ahem, yeah it just that awesome. I thought it was strange first few chapters, but it really grows on you. The story is unique and interesting. The characters are... well take bad asses from history and pitched them against each other and what you get?

This is a history nerd's true heaven. Not only that, but for people, like me, who aren't as "educated" or "into" history as some, this will be enjoyable. Honestly, I enjoyed a lot of the references and jokes in here. It's seriously interesting, and I love the way the author integrated the character's past and habits in their plans/ideas. Amazing. 10/10 would recommend.

Epic Heroes Carnival

Yeah, in short this manga is the stage to show how epic of each hero based on their era. Epic, is for sure. Bloody battle in samurai style is everywhere around the mc.

In brief, enthralling epic bloody heroes stories... I'll give a ten

Edit: @silentanime... the hell?!! U maybe right?! After looking at his hands, maybe u got that right... very very very extreme character to be pulled of...

Time warp fantasy fusion type stories are always great, and Drifters is definately top class so far. The humor, action and plot are all quite excellent.

For those that may be interested in a similar yet equally interesting manga, I highly recommend "Gate".

PS: Nobunaga is a total boss in this series. Between him and the main protagonist the lulz just don't stop cool

And that's why I love it!! the earlier chapters (just like some people below me say) are a bit weird to begin with, but after reading few more chapters you'll understand why the plot made like that. If you are a fan of history in general, I'm sure you'll lovin' it, since in the further chapters there'll some more surprises for you. And yeah, this is not your usual samurai story in sengoku era. IT IS MORE THAN THAT.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After reading chapter 33, it makes me want to shout like: "Hey... Isn't that means the Black King is Jesus Christ?!"
Well, since he was died in angst just like the other "ends", It does make sense. But hell, only the Japanese dare to put something like this in their works that openly.

Like people before have posted this is such an awesome manga. I don't about the others but when I was new to this series every chapter send chills down my spine like the kind you get when riding a roller coaster. The battle scenes are good but I prefer the personality and the facial expressions that the characters make. After reaching the latest chapter you would be pissed at Hirano for making this a monthly release.

This is an intersting manga thanks to that many of the characters are actual persons that have existed.
By puting them in an altenativ univers was intresting and really fun, it made me want to know more about the different historical people introdused in the series.

This is the kind of series where people complain about the violence. I can only reply that violence has it own demographic lol. If you can't take it then don't read it but that doesn't make the manga any inferior. Awesome series for people that love blood, fantasy and action. Brilliant! As lazy as Hirano is...he does draw good stuff
