Drifters Synopsis

Shimazu Toyohisa, whilst involved at the Battle of Sekigahara, is able to mortally injure Ii Naomasa, but is extremely injured in the way. As he moves from the field broken and bleeding, Toyohisa locates himself taken to a corridor of doors, the place where a bespectacled man at a desk waits for him. This man, Murasaki, sends Toyohisa into the closest door where he wakes up in another world. There, Toyohisa meets many other great warriors like him who’ve been transferred as well, to engage in a group known as “Drifters. “.
