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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven, but lots of fun February 3, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Climb to the Top! November 16, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Blend of Fun and Fantasy June 28, 2014
By JP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series does something that is hard to achieve with most stories. It hits the exactly the mixture of seriousness and comedy. The story itself is a serious one - it's set in a tower created by an evil deity and filled with monsters. Every person climbing the tower has their own goals ranging from simply getting rich to making a name for themselves or even, in our hero's case, slaying Druaga himself just because its the right thing to do. The risks are real, characters come close to death and actually do die, leaving other characters to cope with the loss. On the other side of the coin though, is the humor. The story often makes fun of tropes common to fantasy games and stories with very entertaining results. Fantasy game fans will definitely appreciate the humor when the groups run across traps that have ridiculous effects or our hero has to conquer a tower within the tower with someone else controlling him like a game. However this humor does not detract from the seriousness of the story, but rather enhances the overall experience.
I would strongly recommend this series to anyone, even if you aren't a fan of anime. It's a well told story with good characters that I think anyone can enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny movie March 6, 2014
By rilious
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a gamer I was expecting a lot from a game movie and it didn't dissapoint, it had a lot of gamer scenes from the past which acts as a comedy for the show. the hero of the story line is a young kid with big heart and the side characters make the journey funny. I was happy with the series and had me laughing a lot
