Kodansha Comics publishes an English language version of the Drifting Dragons manga, and describes the story of the series as follows:

The draking vessel Quin Zaza soars through the skies, hunting dragons that hide in the clouds. A single big catch means full coffers and all the meat they can eat, while failure means an empty wallet and an even emptier stomach. Join us as we log the crew’s grand adventures, chasing dreams of the sky, dragons, and gourmet cooking!

Tadahiro Yoshihira is directing the anime at Polygon Pictures, and Makoto Uezu is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Yoshikazu Iwanami is the sound director. A four-member female rock band Red Park (Akai Kōen) is performing the ending theme song “Zettai Reido” (Absolute Zero).
