I don't usually give out tens.
At first I was skeptical. The art shown here didn't do it justice, and I am tired of historical samurai dramas. The plot takes a turn very quickly from a battle to the main character "drifting" to a new world with elves. After that the plot becomes solid, the characters badass with a hint of humor. I don't want to ruin the plot so I am going to stop here.
shit is boss
you gotta read drifters when it starts off you're just thinking like, wtf is this? but it's by the author of hellsing, so you stick with it then a couple chapters later, you're just like, fuck yeah
Gotta say when I first saw this I was kinda turned off by it, but if you keep with it you will be rewarded. Currently I place this manga about where hellsing was at it's peak and as far as I can see the story is just picking up.
Not for everyone
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
This is awesome. That's all I can say for now.... but this will be great, with all the historical characters...
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.

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

The MC is just another Monkey D. Luffy in another surreal world...
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.

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?
Awesome Hirano is awesome.
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.
