Netflix is getting a Dota anime series in March

Dota: Dragon's Blood is an upcoming anime series based on Valve's Dota 2

Valve and Netflix launched the Dota anime series on March 25, the companies announced today. At the top is a promotional trailer, featuring some of the main characters and showing some good fights.

The eight-episode series is produced by Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor, and Black Sails), in which Studio MIR performed animation. "Fans will love the way we think of the entire DOTA 2 universe and incorporate a fascinating, emotional, and adult story about some of their favorite characters," Miller's statement (via Deadline) said. "Movie animation, acting, and music are just the next level and I thank Valve for supporting our creative ambitions."

We don't know much about the plot and characters yet, but we do know that it will explore the "Dota universe as never before" and focus on the righteous Dragon Knight who meets the ancient Eldwurm business and princess.

"A series of hot fairy tales tells the story of Davion, the famous Dragon Knight who dedicated his life to eradicating the plague from the face of the earth.

Unlike Dragon's Dogma anime, which was announced in 2019 and first aired last September, the Dota anime series will start just a few weeks now, which is great if you're like me and can wait to see how Netflix can transform MOBA into MOBA anime.
