Great Steampunk Adventure
Arcane: An animated SF/Fantasy Steampunk series on Netflix. In the cities of Piltover and Zaun there is unrest, Piltover the upper city literally looks down on and oppresses Zaun. We have gangs of thieves, rebels, steampunk Stormtroopers, magic melded with science. This is serious stuff with great physical and “magic” fights. Also a tale of two sisters falling out and Scientist/Mages battling against the conservatism of the Council who fear the unleashing of uncontrollable powers. It’s set in the League Of Legends game universe. Directed by Pascal Charrue and Arnaud Delord, written by Christian Linke and Alex Yee. 9/10.
Excellent, also for non league fans
I watched it with my parents who don’t know anything about league’s universe. I have been playing league since 2010, So my opinion may be a bit biased.
But my parents were pleasantly surprised. They said that sometimes it was a little clear that this series is more aimed at a young adult audience. Some usage of the pop songs, and the villian being a little over the top mustace twirly. But overall they enjoyed the first 3 episodes and wouldn’t mind watching the rest in their own time. As for me. I loved it! It was everything I hoped for and then some. Riot’s art department was always on their A game. And with the track record from Fortiche I knew this had very little chance to blunder. Knowing Riot’s art department it has an excellent story, well written charaters and a lore rich world to take elements from. All in all, this show comes together very nicely. And shows some of the best talents Riot has to offer.
