Season 2019: A New Journey
We have just been amazed by the short cinematic the Riot production team has produced for the start of the 2019 season. Now, we have another short clip dedicated to capture the hearts of our anime-loving Summoners – this is A New Journey.
This 1-minute video in particular has a vibe that would make you immediately say "Oh wow, is this an anime opening?"
The story revolves around Michelle, a university student who joined a League of Legends team and played her heart out together with new-found friends.
This Season 2019 video is in collaboration with P.A. Works, a Japanese animation studio known for its TV series such as Angel Beats!, Another, and Charlotte. P.A. Works has also produced animated movies like video-game based title Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva.
The vocals and lyrics for A New Journey were by YouTuber AmaLee (LeeandLie), who's popular for her English covers and adaptations of anime and video game songs. Visit her channel here for her other covers.
Overall, the 60-second video was directed by Yamashita Shingo, the animation director for some popular anime series such as Naruto: Shippuuden and Gatchaman Crowds, and as an episode director for Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta, Tetsuwam Birdy: Decode 02, and Sousei no Onmyoji.
A New Journey encourages players of all shapes and sizes to join the League of Legends by signing up and playing for free.
