The fact the Gonzo ‘joined forces’ (lol) with Crunchyroll and Youtube and is streaming this anime as well as BLASSREITERS (in which I have no interest) fully subtitled (in english) was a surprise. I honestly had no interest in Tower of DRUAGA and Gonzo isn’t a company I really … erm … appreciate. RxJ was beautiful, sure but it wasn’t all that. Anyways, the fact that so much effort was put into this (streaming, subbing and all) was enough to get me to watch it and so I did.
And damn … I’m surprised.
I didn’t watch the PV so I wasn’t sure what to expect but Druaga didn’t strike me to be a comedy … and yet, the first episode was PURE comedy. It was 20 minutes of pure crack and if I didn’t have a cold/fever I’d be laughing hell right now still.
The best way to attract your viewers is to surprise them. Congratz Gonzo! You succeeded in making me want to see the next episode. I have no idea if I’ll be interested for the rest of the series, but for now … Druaga has made it on my watch list.
Tentacle Rape takes the cake (and I’m supposed to be a girl ==;) really, not even the deathflags or that corny “I am your Father” line can beat that. Neeba’s face was pure gold and Jil must be gay if he wasn’t turned on. *snorts*
Though, since it was all in Jil’s dream … I’d like to believe Neeba isn’t the pervert type. He looks like such a cool character, after all!
That said, I’m looking forward to the next episode. Hopefully Gonzo won’t pull another …. Gonzo on us. I want something good. (Especially since Sakurai-sama’s in this. Gosh I’m such a fangirl)
((I forgot to mention how much I loved the “After this fight, I’m going to my hometown to get married” line, that is GOLD))
