I really liked the ending compared to many other shows. I predicted how he was going to kill "Druaga" but everything after that left me in shock. Second tower O.o, wow.

Well, I was a late fan, so I already knew that there was a Season 2 before watching this. Hence, I also knew that the heroes couldn't end up living "happily ever after" after ep 12. I was sort of expecting what Neeba would do, since the show constantly drops hints of his bastardly nature, and given how effective he is at "convincing people" (like Fatina), I'm not that surprised that Kaaya joined him either. Still, I can't say it wasn't dramatic, and its a perfect cliffhanger situation to get anticipation building for a Season 2.

A few questions for the knowledgeable =D:

So is the Blue Crystal Rod the reason that Gil was able to survive being stabbed in the chest O_o or did they reveal the reason and I just missed it?

********SLIGHT TANGENT ALERT**********************************************************************
They also say that no one's been able to climb up the Tower since Gil destroyed Druaga, but I was under there impression that there are at least 4 sequels to the original Tower of Druaga videogame, so I'm guessing thats an outrageous lie (Gilgamesh mentions that if you count the time he went to save Ki, that makes it 5 times he's been to the tower, so the anime acknowledges this). Admittedly, I have not played the games yet (I plan to. Hopefully Namco remakes them) but I'm guessing someone, whether it be Gil or someone else, climbs up the tower again, no?
*************************************************************************************************************
Did they ever reveal who the blue haired chick was or who sealed her in the tower? Is that another video game reference that I missed?

They mention that Gilgamesh's immortality was supposed to be some curse he received from Druaga, they don't say if it is because of the Blue Crystal Rod or not.

As for Gil going up the tower a lot, I am guessing they are bunching all those sequel's together. Although I think only the first trip and maybe the Ki prequel are getting referenced. I have no idea what happened in any of them, although I know that the current tower is different then the one Gil climbed at first, which would be exactly like or similar to the one Jil climb in that episode 8.

The blue haired chick that keeps hanging around Neeba is Druaga's former lover, no idea what happened to her in game, but it looks like her and Ki some how had their souls bound to the tower and kind of act like guardians of it, while guiding some chosen folk to climb it. During one of his earlier excusions in the tower, Neeba freed the blue haired chick in his flashback and Jil freed Ki during that one time climbing the original tower simulation back in episode 7 or 8.

Ah, that makes things a little clearer. So his immortality is a curse? Thats a pretty awesome curse, except he seems to continue to age. I'll have to rewatch that episode. I did some research on Wikipedia, and there's only 3 actual sequels (Made by Namco, or Namcot as they were called) the last one was called "The Blue Crystal Rod", so I'm guessing Gill decides to keep the Rod after that game. (Though the wiki says that The Blue Crystal Rod is needed in order for Druaga to appear, so I guess he kept it after the first one, but who cares. I guess if you played the games before, the fact that Gil has the Rod isn't a big surprise afterall)

Kaaya's probably Ishtar reincarnated, but is it possible that Kaaya's Gil and Ki's daughter? Ki mentions that she is waiting for the one she loves on top of the original Tower, so I guess its safe to bet that Gil is going to return to the Original Tower, and use The Rod to make some craziness happen. I guess we'll see what season 2 has in store =D

Oh, for anyone who's interested in the original series: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tower_of_Druaga
