Drifters is a historical action and fantasy manga written and illustrated by Hellsing author Kouta Hirano. The manga started serialization on April 30, 2009 in the Japanese manga magazine Young King OURs.

The series follows historical figure Shimazu Toyohisa after he is wounded in the Battle of Sekigahara.
