Running for eight episodes, DOTA: Dragon’s Blood is a short anime fantasy series following the story of Davion, whom players may be familiar with as one of the hero characters in the game. He embarks on a mission in defeating the “scourge” of the world but ends up getting tangled up in matters bigger than he can handle when he crosses paths with eldwurms, a race of dragons in the game, and Mirana, the Princess of the Moon.

DOTA fans may be enthralled at first glance, but you don’t necessarily have to play the game to enjoy the series. If the artwork looks familiar, it’s because the show is designed by Studio MIR, the animators behind The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender.

Also buckle up your seatbelts for some action-packed adventure as American screenwriter Ashley Edward Miller, known for his role in writing X-Men: First Class and Thor, is also one of the notable folks working on this animated series.
