PostSubject: Legend of Korra   Mon Apr 02, 2012 11:01 pm

Fangirl

I really loved Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Legend of Korra is shaping up to be amazing as well!

I don't think it has officially premiered on Nickelodeon yet, but the first two episodes are available for free on iTunes if you didn't watch them on the special Korranation promo.

Korra is my favorite so far but pretty much every character is awesome.

I too enjoyed watching the Avatar cartoon. It was 1 of the best things on tv at the time. I'm glad I never saw the live-action movie.

When is Legend of Korra gonna officially air, in the Fall?

First couple if episodes were pretty damn good. Tenzin is awesome, as is his family; I want a polar bear dog; not too sure what I think of Mako or Bolin, but I do like the Pro Bending thing; Korra's a bit of a fuck up so she gets points for that, and the animation is fucking beautiful.

So yeah, it's off to a great start and I am pretty excited for the rest.

I think everyone wants a polar bear dog. I've watched the two episodes three times now and I say that every time.

MOVED FROM THE RANT THREAD BECAUSE I JUST REMEMBERED THERE WAS A DEDICATED THREAD FOR THIS SHOW

The more I think on it, the less I like The Legend of Korra.

I still mostly like Korra. I guess I'm just used to things that have great characters and terrible plots (I mean I read Bleach, after all).

However, I do think Korra would be 100% better without Mako, or romance in general. It's like they made Korra with the thought in mind that kids who watched Avatar: The Last Airbender would now be teenagers or young adults and would want the romance to be like Twilight. Facepalm There are other issues with the writing, but I feel like a lot of them could have been addressed better if they had left the romance and the romance triangle out of it.

I'll go ahead and spoiler my rant just in case since it is still fairly recent.

Season 2 of Legend of Korra has begun. I like the first few episodes. Anyone else watching?

So uh, how about that Korrasami in book 3? Oh My

Book 3 was so much better than the first two. If you stopped watching, I'd recommend picking it back up.

I watched Book 3. It was amazing. The finale hits ya right in the feels. And oh yeah, the Korrasami is all over there. And hopefully it becomes real in Book 4.

The fight scenes in the finale were amazing, too. Probably the best in the entire series so far. Everyone got to be a badass at some point.

I'm excited for book 4.

Surprise! Legend Of Korra's Final Season Debuts In Less Than A Month!

Yes, you read that right. The final season of LoK, Book 4: Balance, is coming Oct. 3. Just... spreading the word.

Well ladies and gents, LoK is now over. Even though the finale is not as 'grand' as how The Last Airbender [cartoon] was, it still ended nicely regardless. And those last moments in the final episode were just... go see it for yourselves and you'll see what I'm talking about. Wink

It was pretty awesome. The finale really delivered IMO. The only bad part is listening to the people with their heteronormative bullshit complain about "it came out of nowhere."

It didn't come out of nowhere so much as it went from a a 6 to an 11 in two minutes. If you want to talk about out of nowhere, let's talk about Zhu Li and Varrick.

I was ready to quit Korra cold after season 2, but someone convinced me to to watch season 3 and holy shit. Season 4 felt like it was trying to balance way too many plates with not nearly enough sticks. The budget cuts really showed, and the season really suffered for it. Kuvira never got proper development and was a one dimensional megalomaniac tyrant until her few minutes with Korra in the finale, Su's the fucking worst, Lin got told to stuff her feelings because they are incontinence to her family again, and the list goes on. It was a season of half finished plot threads and character arcs, but I can't really begrudge them for it because they didn't have the resources to do it properly.

I still enjoyed it, I just wish Nick hadn't pulled the rug out from under them. Or that it wasn't on Nick in general, really. Even Cartoon Network would have let them cut loose a little more than Nick.

Also, I'm not going to lie, Korrasami has me salty. It started out as a crack ship and now it's fucking canon. Meanwhile, we're over here waiting over a DECADE for Yoruichi and Sui-Feng to be even in the same chapter!

Yeah I don't have any fantasy that Kubo will actually do that. I'm not sure Kubo even knows what queer baiting is, or that it's a thing he kind of did.
