Dota is in my Top 5 games of all time. Love it. Luna might be my favorite hero to play. When I finished the anime my only opinion was, "well they sure did make that thing. Good for them." It has little to do with existing Dota lore. I didn't feel like knowing the game well added anything to the experience because they made up their own stories to replace the lore for most of the characters. The only plot line I'm interested to see continue to play out is Invoker's. Even then I'm not all that interested in a season 2 if it gets made.I do wonder if they would plan on using more of the less "human" characters in a season 2. Kind of like how the Marvel movies didn't get into the weird comic book stuff until they had an audience hooked already.
