[Ended] The Tower of Druaga The Sword of Uruk: Less Good and More Bad

After seeing the ending, there is one big question in my opinion was left unanswered: what is the real motive for the final villain? Though it seems that the plot want you to come to the conclusion that he did what he did only because of jealousy, but I refuse to go along with that. If that really is the case, then this is a quite retarded anime. There ought to be something else I'm missing that someone else might have picked up, if you do, please let me know.

As a short series by itself, even though it demonstrated the cleverness of plot layout towards the end, I still think there's more junk than useful plots. Attach the first season to it, that doubles the amount of the junk. In my opinion, even with all the hoops they went through to try to cleverly disguise the real plot, I still think they can compact it into a single season when they get rid of all the junks. Because as it stands right now, I think close to 50% of the series is useless junk.

And just what's up with the opening scenes? Did they just make it that way for fun?

BTW, I still think Fatina is a better choice for him...

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 60 (Too much junk dramas)
Comedy: 70 (Most are retarded)
Action: 70 (Good and bad)
Art/Animation: 70 (Not that impressive)
Sound/Music: 70 (Didn't much impression)
Character: 65 (Missing key motives...)
Plot: 65 (Too much junk)
Ending: 70 (At least they finished it once and for all...)

Re-watch value: 50 (Don't even need to watch it the first time...)

Overall (not average): 66 ~ Junk plots everywhere...

Recommendation: Since I strike Gonzo off my favorite anime production studio list, this one being crap really doesn't surprise me any more. They took an ok conept, and added tons of junk to make two seasons of The Tower of Druaga. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody even if you run out of stuff to watch.
