This past season I’ve been talking about Yuri!!! on Ice and little else, so I thought it was time to showcase another brilliant anime to come out of Fall 2016. While Drifters isn’t perfect by any means, it has one thing down impeccably – writing war and all the effort and strategy that goes into it. So I’ve decided to break down the aspects of war that Drifters includes in its final battle – many of which don’t appear in other works at all – and why they’re both important and interesting. Oh, and some spoilers ahead.
Drifters has mastered writing war. Spoilers ahead.
