Add to Watchlist

Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk is a slightly tongue-in-cheek anime TV series based of a Japanese arcade game named The Tower of Druaga. Once every few years during the Summer of Anu the demons populating the titular Tower of Druaga weaken. Providing an opportunity for the armies of the surrounding Uruk Kingdom and adventurers, called climbers, to attempt to fight their way to the top of the tower in search of a powerful item the Blue Crystal Rod. The story centers on Jil, a new climber who wishes to reach of top of the tower and becoming recognized as a hero, as he and his party ascend the tower despite numerous obstacles. Which include difficulties with his half-bother Neeba and the army of Uruk.

The show takes numerous shots at the source material as well as its genre, often breaking the fourth wall and going into 8-bit graphics style animation during crucial scenes. Backing up the action-packed adventure tale is expensive, high quality animation with liberal use of 3D CG.
