Netflix’s newest animated series Arcane based on the League of Legends game was released November 6, 2021. Although at first glance many might skip this show due to not being interested in the game, let me tell you some reasons why it is worth watching regardless. Also this blog will be Spoiler Free!
First, let’s start off with the main plot. So, if you haven’t watched the official trailer already, here’s the link to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXmAurh012s
If you’ve seen posters for the series, you may have recognized the blue pigtailed girl already. That’s because she’s one of the most popular characters/champions of the League of Legends franchize: Jinx. This is important because she will be our main protagonist for the show, but you do not need to play the game or know the game’s lore to understand anything. The show will provide all the information you need for viewers to thoroughly immerse themselves into the show. But if you do play the game, most of what goes on the show can act as easter eggs or further backstory on why certain characters are the way they are.
