Connection between favorite gameplay and another work of culture is really satisfying for fans. For example, it’s fascinating when we like some game, we dealt with it so far only on our PC (or online, or console), but now we can read some books or watch some series inspired by it. This is in the case of League of Legends – we have the novella “Ruination”, and the anime series “Arcane” on Netflix.

We had already written about the novella, so now we will focus on the series. Is it worth watching? What is the plot about? What character’s biography brings us closer to us?

What do we know about the series – technical side of Arcane

Arcane League of Legends was produced by Fortiche Production in the USA. Official premiere takes place the 6th of November in 2021, however at first it was planned in 2020 to release.

Riot Games is the creator, and the scenario has been written by Christiana Linke and Alex Yee. So far, we can watch one season including nine episodes that lasts about 40 minutes. First trailer of Arcane was released during the celebration of the League of Legends decade.

This animated series was created in cooperation between Riot Games and Netflix, and of course – we can watch it over there!

The plot of Arcane – which characters we will get to know better?

Long story short: action takes place in full contrast places -  Piltover and Zaun, and the main story is about Jinx and Vi.

Piltover is a really rich and balanced city, whereas Zaun is poor, dirty and hard to survive in. Contrast between these cities is clearly shown. In Zaun there are two sisters – Jinx and Vi - and their friends. Jinx and Vi truly love each other, however these two have completely different character and sensitivity.

Coincidence makes sisters suddenly stand on two opposite sides. At the same time, the situation in both of the cities is also getting worse. It’s due to the new technology, magic and some potions that turn people into monsters.

Vi is standing for Piltover, where she is guardian of the law, whereas Jinx still lives in Zaun... and she is crazy. Why? All of this is shown in the series.

What Arcane characters will we see?

Arcane Jinx inspired many fans to do artworks based on the series, she even has new skins in LoL based on series ones. Not only she – every character that appears in Arcane Netflix has new skins in the game.

On the screen we can also see: Caitlyn, Jayce, Singed, Ekko, Viktor Arcane and Heimerdinger. In TFT you can also play Silco.

We will see some other characters relatable to the League of Legends world: Deckard or Vander. The second one can be one of the champions from the game – but we will see…

Arcane cast – who voiced the characters in the original version?

If we talk about the series, it will be bad if we don’t mention people who work hard to make it complete. What does the voice cast look like?

  • Vi – Hailee Steinfeld
  • Jayce – Kevin Alejandro
  • Deckard – Josh Keaton
  • Heimerdinger – Mick Wingert
  • Singed – Brett Tucker

Will we see the same cast in Arcane season 2? We will not be surprised when someone new arrives.

Is Arcane worth watching? We answer!

We think this series is worth watching for a couple of reasons:

  • Graphics design – this steampunk anime series is at a high level visually. It’s nice to watch. The animations are well done, we see the emotions of the Arcane characters, and interestingly constructed landscapes. Individual frames are reminiscent of those from well – known movies. Steampunk atmosphere does a great job. No wonder the animation inspired creators to make new skins in LoL, like Vi Arcane, Jinx Arcane, Caitlyn Arcane or Jayce Arcane.
  • The plot and the lore – we get to know the characters better. We try to understand their motives. The characters are not just black and white. Everything that happens to them has an impact on their decisions or feelings. It was conducted in an interesting way.
  • Contrasts between Piltover and Zaun. The environment affects the characters, also the policy. It’s not just a nice series with LoL’s characters, there is a space for deeper reflection

What about Arcane season 2?

People working on Arcane season 2 confirmed that next season, it’s on its way. But probably we will not see it in 2022.

Creators are really happy because of the positive response of fans about the series. Therefore, we are sure that we will see the continuation. Co – creators said that they definitely want to tell us more stories. And focus on the stories of individual characters also.

We don’t know when the full trailer will come, but some of the main voice – actors from the Arcane cast confirmed that they will take part in the character's voice recording again.

We have no choice, but to wait. However, after watching season 1, we know it will be worth it to wait and watch season 2!
