The animated series is getting mixed reviews. In its review, The Verge writes, “The show is eye candy, quickly jumping from one action-heavy sequence to the next. It looks incredible, but since it’s only eight episodes, this fast pace means it never has the time to fully develop its characters or world.”
Another reviews reads, “Dragon’s Blood is conventional, and probably among the safest ways to adapt a game like Dota into a television series. It ends with much more story to tell, and maybe with its cast of characters now established, a second season could shade in the nuances they didn’t get in these eight episodes.”
