I really think some people don't understand the history behind the "history" that are watching at all. Many people 'see', but not 'observe'.
This series have a lot of connotations, such politics and social, from a showdown with a dictator; unto to release of real feelings. Almost all characters have a full evolution of her personality... even Naga hahaha.
At first I agree looks like a little child's series, but think is a masterpiece in all respects. I recommend this series to all public, seen or not any other series of the Avatar's universe.
PS. James Cameron's 'Avatar' not included. xD
Characters that didn't have any logic. Annoying rebellious acts for no apparent reasons. "Wise" elder characters who bicker and are useless. Story line was inexcusably weak, character development was pathetic, and it was altogether a bad show. Original Airbender was good, this was not. Teen drama crap.
Just watched all of this in a few days without having seen Avatar at all. I thought it was pretty good. Really liked the animation, the rather adult themes for a kids show, and the world built in the show. Pretty good. I'm sad I only started watching it after it was over.
Season 1: 5/10 - UnfocusedSeason 2: 3.5/10 - Garbage (It's only here to create retcons and plot holes)Season 3: 5.5/10 - Anarchism rules (Uninteresting villains)Season 4: 6.5/10 - Finally (the only one I enjoyed because has a solid story and a good villain but losts it self mid-way through)!
Good series. The finale is a little lame though in the very end. Instead of winding up with any of the guys. Korra suddenly realises she is a lesbian...the End.
In my opinion this show is better than the original Avatar. You will notice that it is supposed to act as a sort of opposite to the original in many ways. Instead of a pussy vegan hippy boy who always stays positive as the Avatar we get a fiery, angry, and disobedient teenage girl (which sounds bad when I say it here but she's actually pretty great). Where the original starts out with the whole world closing in around the avatar, LoK begins peaceful and these smaller, more focused plots come into the fold as it progresses. The show is deeper and stays more focused to the central plot than TLA which could be a positive or a negative thing depending on how you like your shows. The only big problems I have are the shameless fan pandering that goes on every once in a while but that can easily be ignored. Season rankings: 3>2>1>4
Only English serious man? Korra não chegara aos pés de Andy, ela é somente uma aborrecente
I thought this is a kids show, but now I've see "The totally RAD show" review [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u3iqRGQSX0 ] I'm really curious.I think I'll try it out.Love the artwork already!
Not as awesome as the first Avatar, but still love this world and want to see more of it. There is a comic coming out this june, and if history repeats itself they will make a few more comic books, then kill Korra and incarnate a new Avatar liek they did with Aang (I believe it was four comic books). I hope they bring it back!
Just saw this show for the first time. I did watch the original airbender when it first came out on TV and loved it, this was on my watch list for a long time!
The first show was an epic journey to save the world and bring peace and balance. Well peace and balance are still the main goals but now it feels much like a dbz style battle anime. Every season a new evil appears and team avatar goes for the rescue of the world.But in between the fights theres a strong motive of self-discovery, especially in the last season.
With it's mature content and questions this show proved that it's a bit more than a children animation and could be watch by people of different ages.
I just binged watched this show and I was hooked from the first episode. The artwork is just amazing and the characters are so deep. Is it better than the first on series? I can't say because that one has a special place in my heart too. The creators have out done themselves with this show. Now if we can just keep M. Night Shama....away from tainting the material again.
Now the original series was fantastically well done, but it would be unfair to compare The Legend of Korra to it. This series didn't start very strong and definitely dragged in season 2, but season 3 was very well made and this final season has been a joy to watch. It's a far more mature series than Avatar, and deals with more 'adult' things like systems of government and on-screen deaths. It's not a perfect series by any means, but it is rather good and I hope that the creators are able to make another series some time in the future.
Hated it in the beginning (first few ep) but now I'm hooked! (I'm at season 4). I love Korra, and I love the slightly darker themes in this!
As much as I can't wait to watch the final chapter, I really don't want Korra to finish this year...
still could be better!!! (via Clutter for Windows Phone)
Book 3 fantastic so far.
So, what's up Nick: you make a terrible decision and decide that low ratings aren't your fault but the show's? If Book 4 ends up getting scrapped or placed online, someone over there will suffer when the Fire Nation attacks!
i cant watch anything
It's really annoying that thanks to an accident Nick have decided to abandon their original plan and release Book 3 from tomorrow. Kind of unfair on overseas viewers who'll have to wait even longer to see it (like us in the UK who probably won't get it until next year or something).
La leyenda de korra libro 2 ya saldrá actualizen
Finding origin of bending was awesome,another awesome storyline for sure. but so much miss goofiness of sokka.
well done anime show
BORING ! the last airbender is way much better !!!!!
why can't I watch it
any date yet for the starting continuation?
For me this was better than the original Avatar series. The more adult themes and consistent storytelling coupled with fantastic designs, music and action create a fantastic show.
I found this took a few episodes to really get going for me, perhaps some of that comes from getting used to the new characters and realising that the world has changed quite a bit since Aang's adventures. However after that, it just got better and better. The end of Series/Book one is climactic and enjoyable and I personally can't wait for more.
@saxtus: thank you! i will keep a sharp eye for this, really loved first avatar and sure loving korra :)
@vahlkor: Korra's season 1 isn't over yet, as each season consists of two books.Book Two: Spirits, will consist of 14 episodes and will start airing in 2013. That makes Season 1 to be 26 episodes long.Season 2 will consist of Book Three & Four and will also be 26 episodes long, containing 13 episodes each.
been fan from avatar since first series, still loving it. anyone knows when is S2 starting?
I never thought I'm gonna love the new Avater. But believe me I am starting to love this one very much. though avatar Aang is still my favorite. But korra is doing her part good and may be too much good to fell in love with.
Awesome finale! I want more of the Avatar history!
All anime is deemed as kids shows in the western world. But there are a lot of anime aimed at adults. That said, this isn't japanese anime but a western variation. I haven't seen it yet but I'm pretty sure if you like this show you'll like anime. Try Naruto or One Piece if you're looking for more of this stuff :)
Nice show indeed.Aang was younger, was the last of his kind as a bender, and the world at war for 100 years was a really great plot.
As for Korra... we have to wait and see what a "modern" city can be challenging for the master of all elements.
for now... Totaly Ninja!! :)
Really enjoyable watching the show after years of waiting for new bender episodes :D
Still prefer Aang as Avatar.
btw theTVDB count this serie as an addition to "The Last Airbender"
Loved The Last Airbender, and this is really amazing!
Really like this one !
