  • The Tower of Druaga - A game but not a game that is a game but a show
    I'm not sure what I fully remember of watching this show. I forgot to write a review for it back when I finished it in the summer of 2014. For me this show falls into that realm of animes that make you think it's people playing inside of a game. Which is appropriate considering the source material, but for me going into this show dry I thought it was a show on a similar setting as dot.Hack or ...

  • Good overall, but slow in the middle
    The atmosphere of this first season is not constant. It switches from humorous to serious tones episode to episode. Because of this disconnect, I found it difficult to watch more than 1 or two episodes in a session. The beginning of the season and the end of it are very compelling to watch, but the middle portion may cause some to drop it due to seemingly pointless episodes. Three and a half stars ...

    Gonzo's Best Work: Definitely Worth Watching
    At first glance, Tower of Druaga looked like a questionable venture. Translating a top scrolling video game into an anime is risky business full of pitfalls and Gonzo, despite having many good ideas, often fails in the area of execution. However, after watching the entire series, I have to admit that it’s a pretty good show. Compelling characters, a healthy amount of artistic license, a quirky ...

    Tower of DRUAGA : Aegis of URUK review by Uzumaki-98
    This series was AMAZING :D
    It's only 12 episodes (there's two seasons though so , just 24 episodes). If you have nothing else to watch and not alot of time to watch anything, this is perfect for you. I was kindof taking a break from all the popular 100+ shows, and was looking for something good that isn't too long. I just finished Death Note so I wanted something rather funny and had ...

    A nice little fanstasy anime for RPG nerds.
    The story does a good job of pit the good vs. the evil. It leaves no question who they hero, and it provides charismatic enemies and supporting characters just like a good RPG. In top of that is has good comedy IMO. It can be somewhat ridiculous at times, but I kind of like that. But it is mostly about serious plot twists. i really loved the first episode (it may be my favorite) but the story ...

    Review en español de The Tower of DRUAGA
    El anime está basado en una serie de videojuegos que consta de cuatro partes principales y unos cuantos sidequests y extras. El videojuego original salió en 1984 para arcade y producción de Namco.

    Personalmente me encantó el anime desde el primer capítulo. No sé por que razón en los géneros oficiales no pusieron comedia, porque yo me la pasé riendo todos los 24 minutos que dura. Pasan todos los ...

    Very nice Fantasy-Adventure Anime!
    Storyline:
    The story isn't really deep like in other Fantasy-Adventure Animes (like Fullmetal Alchemist for example), but at least does it has a story. And not a bad one at all.
    The whole story is mixed with RPG-Elements like forming groups, hunting monsters, classes like mage, archer and so on. And because it is an Anime from a Game (or Sequel) you may think: "Oh no, just another ...

    Disappointing after some initial promise
    The first episode is crazy, but showed promise that the series writers understood many the cliches and tropes of anime - in the hopes that they would avoid many of them and replace it with original, or at least refreshing storylines... sadly that wasn't the case.

    Joint review of this series.
    This anime series looked nice and is paced well however you feel as though the series was planned to be much longer than two 12 episode anime. The storyline is something out of an old video game and had me stopping every few episodes to play a few minutes to play one of them.

    I was skeptical at first but now I see this show as what it really is. Greatness.
    This is the first season to one of my new favorite anime. I was very unsure about this series until i started watching and i was just completely blown away! I have seen many anime and almost none of which even compare to this one. This show is a MUST WATCH. I'm just sorry i didn't watch it sooner. It's amazing for those who love action and adventure, along with a love story.
