About Tower of Druaga
In a summer once every five years, demons within in the mysterious Tower of Druaga lose their powers due to a magic spell cast by a god named “Anu”. During this time, King Gilgamesh, ruler of the kingdom Uruk, and his army have invaded the tower and built a fortress city on the very first floor of Druaga. Thus begins the story of a warrior named Jil who embarks on a quest for the legendary Blue Crystal Rod, a powerful artifact said to be held on the highest floor of Druaga. However, others want the treasure for themselves.
FUNimation Entertainment will release the series in two complete season sets beginning in late 2009.
