I've a friend watching it with no knowledge of the characters beyond seeing them in LoR when he tried it.

He enjoyed it from the story and action alone.

I've another friend who knows everything about Runeterra lore.

He enjoys it for how well it represents the characters, world… how only 4 major characters in the show so far aren't champions in the game he grew up playing.

Its just a generally a good piece of animation, even just Act 1. It since its doing so well, Riots already said they're going to make more, which IM all for. Just not Ionia, please
