The first trailer for the upcoming anime adaptation of Kouta Hirano’s Drifters manga has been released online. This new promotional video also reveals the staff working on the project. The director, Kenichi Suzuki, previously directed Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and Ryouji Nakamori will be the chief animation director as well as character designer. Nakamori previously worked on the Hellsing Ultimate OVA series and was able to perfectly adapt Hirano’s designs for that adaptation of his earlier work. There is no word yet on the format the Drifters anime will take but I am hoping for an OVA series due to that perhaps giving us a chance at seeing the whole story eventually animated. Even though I know it may be quite a while before Hirano completes the series.
