I didn't like it at first, thought it was a bit childish but after watching the 2nd episode I started to really like it. It is a great show and defiantly worth watching. I can not wait for the final episode it will be absolutely amazing.

it was both good and bad...1st ep was dumb...reminded me of an anime version of power rangers YUCK! it was in my opinion rushed but thats ok in its own prespective because there were no boring fillers where they sat around talkin bout nothing. however a lil deeper of a background story would have been nice...over all the action is good...but one more ep. cmon they have to defeat druaga in one ep...something made out to be that great and strong going down in one ep isnt that good. thats like in a game having a boss battle that lasts 5 minutes...it aint supposed to happen. i also agree with others who have wrote on how some things werent explained...like the 3 betrayals and who is that girl...the main female character...she says she has to purify the tower and the king gave her his sword....who is she...she is completely unknown and to face that who actually kills druaga how and what happens with the blue crystal rod...its just all to much to get done in one episode. now the good. the character designs are great. the weapons they use like that girls spear that she cranks up and it twists is cool. or jils weapon that had a mini version of a pole arm that he sticks in the ground for better holds is cool. the mic the girl reminds me of a final fantasy X-2 moment and golf with lightning balls and the fire gun are all also cool in their own way. their moods and characteristics tho not well explained seem to fit well such as neeba's character. yeah it reminds you of sasuke but he has flaws like humans do...most animes like to take that whole path of everything in the world is black or white...well in this day and age that dont cut it...pple arnt all black or white they're are shades of grey to each personas. the animations are also good. all and all outta 10 id give it a solid 8. it has its bad parts (too short and all) but its also very good in its own way.

Yeah the length of the anime is the only letdown. They could have stretched this anime for so much more episodes

i think its way too fast. needs more development on the characters and basically everything. to me, it seems like im watching rpg's storyline on anime which is quite interesting because of the many attractive aspects in a rpg game.

Awesome review shinji!
I pretty much agree on saying the series was way too short. We needed to get to know the characters better and I believe it was important that the anime stressed the purpose of climbing. It was a very funny anime and I loved it but I just wish it was longer.. Oh well, short animes usually end in a bang! =D

I feel like this series could have been a hit if more time and effort were put into its production (which would have resulted in a longer series). I liked it, especially the 1st episode, more than most recently released anime. By the way, that review wasn't bad, Shinji. :P

Some aspects about this Tower of Druaga I truly enjoyed were the characters, the balance, and the originality. The diversity and depth of the characters, though some were generic, actually sparked a relationship between the character and the watcher. What I mean by balance is the fact that there was action, comedy, drama, and romance, all of which were at least decent and none of which were over-stressed. And for originality, I never played the game, but some of the concepts and storyline were not predictable or boring, especially the deaths.

I can't wait until the final episode. A clear sign that this anime is worth watching.

The anime has speeded so fast that there was no time to see their strength,weakness etc, and like u don't even know Jil's and Neeba's background properly nor where their parents is dead or alive,the whole concept of this anime seems only about The tower of Druaga you see even the start of the video u see quite alot of image about the Tower of Druaga or someone talking about them,no flow neither,if Gonzo wanted to capture the viewers attention long enough that it becomes popular then surely no one will abandon it, even if it had attention for quite awhile like Naruto which at first had attention long enough until now most anime lovers know it well enough.The other bad point is that from the start which is the newbie group consisting of Jil,Kaaya(Remind me of Kaya Bread ^^),Ahmey,Melt or Meltz or something i can't remember and Coopa if they could actually defeat Druaga in the final episode then Jil and the others which speeded through the episodes and had not gotten any stronger because the video doesn't show them any would have been able to win Druaga like child's play even before they enter the Tower :o!My point is that anime like this usually has a main character and that main character goes through alot of things like battles etc, then finally at the last episode u see the main character with alot of skills and experience usually fighting a very tough boss or something but in this 11 episodes i can't seem to see any difference with Jil at the last floor of the Tower and Jill at the first floor of the Tower so if the last episode Druaga unfortunately lost to Jil then Jil can own Druaga back then when he was a newbie outside the Tower .

hmmm... this series was hilarious and succinct. my only problem is that the beginning was confusing. i enjoyed jil's fantasy but the opening then that made me think that the series was about a boy who plays some online game and his interaction with the same people in and out of the game. the second episode cleared that up but gonzo should hava made it clearer. overall (although it fine short) the characters weren't as "deep" as I generally like them to be but i really enjoyed the series regardless. hopefully this last episode will clear up the numerous loose ends.
