If you’ve been putting off watching Netflix’s Arcane because you don’t play League of Legends, stop that right now. Friends, you’re missing out on some truly incredible animation.
The first TV series from Riot Games and French animation studio Fortiche, created by Christian Linke and Alex Yee, Arcane landed on Netflix on Nov. 6, rolling out three episodes per week until the finale on Nov. 20. And while fans and players of League will find references, Easter eggs, and character signatures aplenty throughout the show, any viewer can jump into it and fully appreciate the series’ compelling story, nuanced characters, and unique, stunning animation style.
To be clear: I don’t play League of Legends and I loved it.
It’s a bit outside of the usual OSNews content, but Arcane is an absolute milestone in both animation and storytelling. It will be the benchmark all other animation studios will be compared to for years to come, and rightfully so. Yes, my fiancée and I both play League of Legends, but even if you don’t, Arcane is something you simply do not want to miss.
Eh, the animation style isn’t that great, and can be a little distracting sometimes. It’s reminiscent of Legend of Korra, but with a heavy dose of “on a computer” and awful dips into the uncanny valley.
But the story and voice acting is great! I’ve been enjoying the show overall, and even have the 10-year old interested in it.
Too bad the writing is terrible. I managed to rage quit twice in just the first episode due to how incredibly stupid the writing was.
I wouldn’t have expected Arcane to show up on OSNews, but am I ever glad it did, because this show is phenomenal in every regard, from the writing to the direction to the animation to the performances to the score to the… did I leave anything out? It’s a towering achievement. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with myself until the next season drops (apparently in 2023!).
Now in order to write a good and high quality term paper can not do without the help of professionals and experts as it is easy to end up with a low score. But it is not easy to find specialists. Fortunately, I got it here on the dissertation help service and I hope that you will get it too! Good luck with the case!
