    Just read chapter 1 on onemanga and was looking for a thread. The author alone is reason enough to think of this as promising. Expected a longer pilot chapter though.

    It looks promising to say the least. An assemble of different semi-mythic persona assembled by a secret timetraveling agency?

    Hell yeah:awesome

    yep, same as you guys, saw it was by Hellsing author and checked it out, looks promising, then came here to see if there was a thread yet :p

    And yeh it was too short, but does a good job of hooking you. Initially I was beginning to feel disappointed, thinking it was going to be another Samurai era historical manga, but the end surprised me, although in hindsight I shouldn't have expected any different from Hellsing's author.

    Well, it?s hirano so i didn?t really expected a big chapter count in the first place, anyone who followed Hellsing got used to waiting 2 months for pretty shorts chapters, sometimes even 8 pages.

    Kickass coloring and drawings.

    And something i read over at Hiranomoe?s....


    Shimazu Toyohisa was a real person, who died on October 21 in 1600, as the numbers on his file indicate. Those numbers are the date of the person's death. So I guess the next Drifter will be Sgt. Steven Johnson (???) who died on December 11, 1971. I can't find any information on any US Army sergeants named Steven Johnson who died in 1971, or any name similar to that (we don't know what his name really is because it's written in barely-legible Engrish as "Steven Johonson"). So maybe the next guy is made up?

    It?s the first chapter, not a pilot.

    First chapters are still usually much longer, but Hirano is a lazy fuck so this is a long first chapter for him.

    Needs more characterizing for me to get interested. The art's nice, but I think I've dealt with pure combat enough. Protagonist is cool, though.

    Don't get your hopes up. At least we will see some scenes from it animated thanks to Hellsing Ultimate.

    Ooo, that page of him dashing forward with the wreck of horses behind him sure was nice. I expected nothing less from Hirano. That was quite some ending to the first chapter, I must know what it means. D:!

    Spoiler: commentary on chapter 2
    Heh, had to feel sorry for the guys who had to carry around a random bloody guy who was weighed down with his armor while still holding his rather sharp sword. Don't quite know where this series is going but I sure can't wait until it starts making more sense. Like what that waypoint between worlds was. :O
