When it comes to Netflix and their video game adaptations, mysterious, Castlevania and The Witcher immediately comes to mind. But Dota: Dragon’s Blood, the anime based on Valve’s 2013 MOBA Dota 2, was quite an entertaining romp when it premiered last year. Good thing new episodes are coming next week to give fantasy fans one more solution after going through The Witcher again.
Last season, things ended on quite a cliffhanger for several characters, with Mirana (Laura Pulver) becoming the ruler of her people just as an elven rebellion started. Davion (Yuri Lowenthal) was captured shortly afterwards by his fellow dragon knights so they can snatch Slyrak’s (Tony Todd) dragon soul from the knight’s body. As much as the knights want it, the bond between Davion and Slyrak may be the only thing that can stop Terrorblade (JB Blanc), especially as the demon rampages and kills other elder wyrms (very ancient dragons, like Slyrak) to save their souls. to steal. The only one who seemed to win at the end of the season was Invoker (Troy Baker), and as the trailer shows, he’s gone and awakened Vahdrak, the Elderwurm of Chaos.
It’s possible, like me, that you overlooked Dragon’s Blood when it came out last year. If so, it could have been a mistake as the show looks pretty rad. Comparisons between it and other fantasy shows will be unavoidable, but the tension between Davion and Slyrak, and those great dragons, helps Dragon’s Blood feel different from some of its other fantasy brethren, animated or otherwise. And it doesn’t hurt that it looks really nice: Studio Mir’s work is always a visual delight, even if the shows themselves are rather narratively frustrating, to say the least.
The new season of Dota: Dragon’s Blood will be released on Netflix on January 18.
