What Is It?
The 2021 Netflix French-American animated streaming TV show Arcane (Season 1) (Arcane: League Of Legends).
This is how Fandom describes this TV show:
Based on the world behind League of Legends, Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich, utopian city of Piltover. Piltover and the seedy, oppressed underground of Zaun. Zaun. Known across Runeterra as the “city of progress,” many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home. But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that balance. The story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart. Like the game on which it is based, Arcane is aimed at a “14+” audience and will deal with some more adult subject matter.
My brother GC sent me the trailer for this show, he wanted to watch it more than I did, I am not a fan of this animation style usually, but it looked like this show had potential; and so we watched it.
To my surprise, it was better than I had expected, and the facial expressions for the characters were surprisingly good; finally another good animated Netflix production, and the fights in this were good & the hand-to-hand combat was more realistic & brutal at times.
This is a success for Netflix, who really needed it, because their quality was going downhill.
The writing for this show was good, and this is probably the best animated TV show that I have seen this year so far.
This definitely better than the disgraceful garbage Netflix anime TV show Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045.
I recommend watching Arcane (Season 1) on Netflix, I would give it a 4 out of 5 for what it is.
