While searching through Google results for Tower of Druaga, I came across a web site where you could stream anime. However…
The site included anime such as Naruto, Azumanga Daioh, Lucky Star, and even Avatar: The Last Avatar. It was set up through a domain name for the site, BlogSpot blog posts for each episode, and a site called Megavideo for hosting the episodes.
What stood out to me was that The Tower of Druaga is included.
, what, only a dollar each at BOST TV ?
Really. Seriously. Who can’t be bothered to spend the equivalent of
twelve US dollars on a series?
I’m guessing the main viewers are older kids and younger teenagers. The ones without a job. Sure, they may have an allowance, but they have no way to spend it online. And why would then? After all,
$12 is a lot of money to waste on only four hours of entertainment. That money doesn’t even score you pop corn and a soda.
What does it say when studios such as Gonzo invest a lot of money into a series, then a Google search such as “watch Tower of Druaga” puts a “free streaming site” on the first page results (after YouTube and BOST TV, thankfully), and searching for “download Tower of Druaga” brings up torrent sites for downloading the whole series (with BOST TV pushed near the bottom of the first page of ten results)?
