    I want a TF2 cartoon. Valve was too lazy to get the episodes in on time but they're putting in effort for a different IP that's less funny.

    One of my students has Dragon Knight as his avatar and was super excited, so he shared this with the class earlier today.

    I guess Valve is trying to make DOTA a multimedia franchise in the same way Riot is with League. It's an interesting idea - I hope it's good.

    It's kind of safe to play it with Davion though. With a massive roster of interesting characters and designs, it would have been cool to see the animation team tackle a few other characters.

    Who the hell called the Dragon Knight? He's like the most boring and uninteresting hero in the entire cast

    Too bad the TF2 cartoon never got made.
    But hey, this is a different company from Adult Swim, and if it can work this time, maybe there's still some hope for TF2.

    I was thinking the same. I was excited to see what characters it showed. Was very dissapointed. The animations already in dota 2 are far better than this.

    So, they canceled Altered Carbon and pump out anime trash based on trash video-games.

    Glad I only enjoyed the free month and didn't renew the subscription. I was about to, actually.

    hey why so grief on animation of dota? Netflix made castlevania and its very good!!..
    Dragon Knight is a Tank in dota in my perspective, and its boring? my god what kind of community is in here..

    anyway, hope Dota Netflix animation is good,.
    hoping the story line is good, and why they battle the two thrones.

    hope they invest more animation based on video games!!

    I would love to see a metroid show/movie. Also I think dark souls/bloodborne would make a great anime

    Not every traditionally animated TV show is an anime. Anime specifically means Japanese animation. Misuse of the terms "anime" and "manga" is some of the most annoying crap weebs have to face when talking to non-weebs about cartoons and comics.
