The announcement of the Dota 2 anime, DOTA: Dragon’s Blood has come in as a pleasant surprise for the fans of the game. They were desperately waiting for a Spring or a New Bloom event since no event or custom mode had been announced since the Diretide ended in December 2020. However, nobody expected that Valve would be releasing an eight episode Dota 2 themed anime series and that too, in partnership with Netflix. A number of Dota 2 professional players and talent involved with the game in the meanwhile have put forward their first-hand impressions of the DOTA: Dragon’s Blood on Twitter.
Sadboys captain and TI5 winner, Peter "ppd" Dager, had a laugh on Dragon Knight being the protagonist of the anime.
With the teaser trailer and main trailer releasing in a few days, we might be witnessing a lot more fan theories as well as reactions about the anime from Dota 2 professionals.
