Editorial Reviews

Scaling the sixty treacherous floors of the Tower of Druaga is no game. Infested with slimes, dragons, and tentacled beasts, very few survive its twisting corridors and lethal traps. Those who reach the top must face Druaga, the demon protecting the mysterious, treasured Blue Crystal Rod. It is a grueling campaign undertaken by only the bravest swordsmen and wisest sorcerers - and Jil. A young Guardian with little experience, Jil raises his shield to play the role of hero, battling his way up to the level where Druaga waits.

Tower of Druaga is an unusual series. I enjoyed it very much, but I think it can only be recommended to the right audience. If you like epic fantasy and enjoy laughing at cliches, you might be part of that audience. The series begins with a pilot episode that brilliantly spoofs the conventions of fantasy fiction, but there's a serious plot here, too. Especially in the second season, there is a strong storyline which will keep you watching to find out what happens next. On the down side, much as I was invested in the developing plot of the second season, I found myself missing the comedy of the first season. Personally, I would have liked the show to continue the light touch with which it began. Part of what impressed me in the first season was the way that even the comic episodes could be used to seriously advance the plot or contribute to character development: they were NOT throw-a-way or breather episodes. However, I did find some of the relationship dynamics to be interesting, and these are developed most strongly in the second season. It's hard to criticize the show too heavily for trading the laughter for a little more depth, because the second season leads to a satisfying conclusion. I have to say, though, that the episodes I am most likely to rewatch are the comic ones from the first season.

This box set includes both seasons, plus the bonus episode, which is really required viewing, since characters occasionally make running gags that refer back to it. There aren't a ton of special features, but some of them are interesting (especially the very goofy commentary on one of the comic episodes). Overall, this box set is well worth buying if you enjoy a good laugh along with a good story.

The Tower of Druaga is a mysterious tower filled with riches and monsters and the god of evil residing at the top. Every 5 years, the Summer of Anu arrives and the monsters become weak. Jil and his friends are Climbers - people who climb the tower and whose goal is to defeat the evil god Druaga at the top and claim the mystical Blue Crystal Rod, which is said to have the power to grant wishes. But Jil and his friends aren't the only ones climbing the tower - there are many other groups of Climbers, and even the kingdom of Uruk sends its army to climb. The race is on!

I was first introduced to The Tower of Druaga through the Funimation preview, which impressed me by being an actual preview (unlike most anime trailers), and a good preview at that. When I found it was based on a video game, I wasn't sure if that was a bad thing or not, but when I heard favorable reviews of the series, I decided to give it a shot.

The first episode had me in stitches - it was a parody of RPG games, and was really well done and entertaining. The second episode is where the story really starts. The parody element continue to show up through out the series, though is most common in the first half. The story itself isn't bad, though full of plot holes. Stuff is thrown in with little explanation and anything important is mostly ignored as long as possible. The characters are flat, and Jil is horribly annoying. The rest are just a little annoying. And if you expect a cool ending where everything comes together and all is explained, keep dreaming.

But for all of its many, many shortcomings, Tower of Druaga was fun to watch. The Tower has lots of cool things about it and I enjoyed the references to Babylonian mythology. I finished the first half of the series slightly impressed.

This show started off as a bit of a disappointment for me. I wanted to relive the nostalgic, magical feelings that permeated me when I viewed "Sword Art Online" for the first time. However, the conflict was lighthearted, the characters (excluding the mage and his apprentice) were uninteresting, and even the world was bland. I was on the verge of being bored to tears. I suppose I could mention the comedy, which stands out on some levels, but by no means does it save the trudging plot when it finds itself knee-deep in mud. I almost gave up, but thank goodness I persevered! ACT II is far more interesting, mystical, emotional, and mesmerizing. It definitely resembled Sword Art Online in its presentation, even if the plot and characters were nothing alike. Speaking of the plot, it thickens intensely in the second half, and practically everything improves: the characters' personalities begin to shine, the world expands and flourishes in ominous beauty, the conflicts grow in magnitude and emotional weight, and one can become easily grabbed by that which failed to do so the first time around. The atmosphere also spiked, and I was completely engrossed in the perilous journey that the almost redefined characters now found themselves taking. I was very much impressed to witness the growth amongst the characters both individually and as a group, even though it was sad to see this progress completely wiped clean after the climax. Speaking of which, the anime ends on a somewhat questionable note, but I have a difficult time discerning whether I find it anti-climactic or just too muddled to take seriously. Nevertheless, I was satisfied, and dub it a hidden gem. The two aspects that were irredeemable, however, were the music and animation.Read more ›
