Of all the "Crunchyroll Originals" that are being released this year, perhaps none are more anticipated than Tower of God, which has just released a new trailer and poster to get fans hyped for the April 1st arrival of the anime from WEBTOON. The series, which will be joining the likes of In Spectre, The God Of High School, High Guardian Spice, and FreakAngels to name a few. With the new series presenting a young boy named Bam attempting to ascend a tower to discover his friend Rachel, the series originally debuted as a manga in 2010 and is looking to now make a splash in the world of anime!
Tower Of God itself has a premise that, on paper, sounds somewhat similar to that of Made In Abyss, the anime series that follows characters as they move down into the Earth's core to discover the location of a lost loved one. The upcoming anime series changes things up a little from the premise of Abyss, offering characters in said universe the opportunity to have their wildest dreams come true if they are able to ascend the "Tower". Each floor of the tower is as large as a continent and throws unique challenges at each character looking to conquer it, offering a number of adventures for Twenty-Fifth Bam to face.
The Official Twitter Account for the Tower Of God anime shared the latest trailer, giving us a brand new look into the world of "irregulars" and "chosen regulars" that are looking to ascend the tower in order to accomplish their lives' goals, whatever they may be:
The official description of Tower Of God reads as such:
"Tower of God centers around a boy called Twenty-Fifth Bam, who has spent most of his life trapped beneath a vast and mysterious Tower, with only his close friend, Rachel, to keep him company. When Rachel enters the Tower, Bam manages to open the door into it as well, and faces challenges at each floor of this tower as he tries to find his closest companion."
