Decided to go with a new thread afterall.

Avatar: The Legend of Korra

If Korra is looking anything like her concept art then I'll definately be onboard. I didn't care much for Aang until the last 4 episodes, and looking at that concept art of Korra makes me think she's one of those strong female types. (Balsa and/or The Major)

I'm actually a little surprised no one is really talking about this. Anyway, your thoughts?

*Insert fan nerdgasm*

Ahem.

I did not know about this. I would watch this show, buy the dvds and watch those a thousand times if they did it exactly like Avatar: The Last Airbender. This looks good. No wait. Amazing compared to the alternative (I am looking at you The Last Airbender)

Seriously I am looking forward to this.

Now I have to go tell my friends who loved the series.

i will end up watching it eventually... my friends love the series (one watched the whole thing twice and a few episodes as many as five times)
i liked it too... but i wont have a nerdgasim or anything too dramatic. i'll be glad that the movie wasn't the last say in the Avatar series above all else.

If there’s a new Avatar, that means Aang has passed on. If he died around age 70, isn’t that pretty young for an Avatar?

Konietzko: You gotta keep in mind that he was frozen in a state of suspended animation for 100 years, so he kind of burned up some of his extra Avatar time.





.....Really? That's what their excuse is?




Yes, that is really the only thing I can criticize about this entire situation. And I guess it works out for Katara, she doesn't have to watch herself grow old and die faster than her husband. I guess when there's peace in the world, you have to find some other reason for an Avatar's death, because the Fire Lord wasn't an issue, and I doubt anyone else could've really threatened him.... Le sigh.


But horray! Strong female character will be fun and exciting. I wonder if there will be fun descendants from other characters. Like Fire Lord Zuko and May's kids. I can't imagine how messed up/emo/confused they'll be, but it'll be fun anyway. AND, what kind of animal guide would Korra have? Badgermole for Earth, Dragon for Fire, Skybison for Air, and ....what exactly for water? Giant whale/eel/shark? God I would love to ride a giant whale...

Well, acording to Katara in the third book, the Waterbenders picked it up from the moon.

...I have no idea how that's going to work.

I thought they ......damn. Maybe she'll just surf like the other waterbender who taught Avatar Kyoshi. I mean that could be cool.



...right?

Bare in mind though it isn't ONLY the Avatar that gets an animal guide. All benders got them. With Roku so did Sozin, with Aang so did all the other Air nomads, and as for badger moles I don't recall any earth bender persay walk around with one. Aside from Toph who learned how to bend from them.

In the Blind Bandit episode, ....was it 4 or 5? There was a badgermole and an earthbender cleaning the fighting platform. And...that's as far as I can go with that one. Although if I were an earth bender I would DEFINITELY walk around with a badgermole.

All the time. And I would sing the SECRET TUNNEL! SECRET TUNNEL! song as much as humanly possible, to drive the people around me insane. Wait, I already do that.

That is true. But bare in mind that was the only scene. Throughout the entire earth kingdom the ONLY earth bender (And I am not sure if he is one) The Earth King of Ba sing Sa had a Bear as a companion.

I think at most with the badger bear in Blind Bandit was just doing its job.

I don't agree to that statement though. He doesn't battle his teachers for one. Sokka doesn't want to jump into every female (Nurse Joy or Police Jenny) as well Sokka is the comic relief.

I hardly recall Brock doing anything memorable funny aside from his horny lusts to get pootang. Also it is just 2 women that Sokka loved. (

)

Oh and not to mention they don't go around throwing Pokeballs at the Fire/Water/Air/Earth Nation.

I am very interested... I really am hoping that the female avatar is not needlessly girly. I don't think she will be, since she looks pretty intimidating in the concept art, and all we see is the back of her. I can't wait to see this~!

Don't forget about how Aang gains a new female companion every season and the last one is shipped off to parts unknown for who knows what.

Wait, Katara stayed part of the group for the entire series? Even after Toph and Suki joined up? Unreal.

At 1st I almost didn't get it. The comparison just wasn't clicking (especially because I never watched Pokemon. Only an episode or 2) but I suppose it does sound a little similar (just a little) but they really have nothing in common. Burori already covered everything so I won't echo what's been already stated.

Well, I figured I'd go ahead and revive this since there's a trailer out.

It looks like Korra has a polar bear/dog thing, and I must say that I like it! The animation looks spectacular, as well! Everything seems to be very fluid and well choreographed.

There are now 2 episodes of this available to see!

I must say... Despite the lack of Toph, I may like this show better than its predecessor.
