742687, Arcane (Netflix 2021)

This is definitely my favorite thing I have watched on Netflix this year and may be their best original animated project.

I was not familiar with any of the League of Legends lore but the animations, story voice work, everything was great...as long as you can deal with some Imagine Dragons music.

742861, How did you all feel about Powder?

I guess this makes me terrible, but I had difficulty feeling any empathy. She really made me tired. However, I think the extremity of her distress at being left alone was well portrayed. I definitely wasn't expecting the show to take on the portrayal of a character with a complex attachment issue.


On another note, I still just continually think about the beauty of the characters. I loved the ethnic diversity. I just LOVED Ekko's face, younger and older. And Mel's, and Grayson's, Viktor's, the sister with a clock around her neck on the Council lol, and even Marcus' shitty ass had a great face...

>Riot is coming for a lot of heads across a variety of media

and I'll be there for it off the strength of this show. I jumped in blind and came away seriously impressed on multiple levels. now I'm looking forward to season 2, the fighting game AND the action-platformer featuring Ekko. they got me.
