Finally subscribed to Netflix and started watching this - a superbly animated steampunk TV series. Gorgeous looks, wonderful animation, great visuals, interesting characters, and a promising and intelligent story. Amazing they managed all this from a simple mobile game!

I think League of Legends is a PC game first and foremost.

I was WoWed (spot the tenuous pun) by Arcane when it came out. Not just amazing visuals, but great character writing too. You won't be disappointed by the rest of the series. It's been on my rewatch list for a while, though I'll probably wait till the second season comes out.

I think the reason I haven't rewatched it yet is that it ends on a downer, and I don't think I want to repeat that without there being more story immediately available that might redress it.

It left me wanting more. But it doesn't look like I'll get my wish. Drat.
A first look at season 2 has been posted on YouTube, for those interested.

(I haven't watched it myself as I want to keep the actual viewing as fresh as possible.)
Of public interest: the teaser reveals that the show comes out in november (or maybe a full trailer comes out in november, it doesn't really say).
