Let the hype begin! There's more info about the plot at the avatar wiki: http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/The_Last_Airbender:_Legend_of_Korra

Personally I'm super excited to see more widespread metalbending, and to see what nods to the original series they throw our way. Anyone else stoked for this?

I am SO EXCITED for this series and that trailer was awesome! Can't believe it's going to be set like 70 years later, but it looks amazing and I am excited. Ooh, Chief Bei Fong?? Toph had a daughter? She must be kick-butt, then!! I wonder, though, about Zuko and Sokka's life after book 3, it's not mentioned. Oh well, maybe further down the line...

I know it was announced, but we didn't have an active topic and the trailer just came out. BTW I believe it comes ot early 2012.


Also, it says on the wiki Toph went around spreading metalbending. And now they have a METALBENDING POLICE FORCE!

I am neutral Avatar, but most of my friends say it ain't anime, but some like it and consider as American anime. I love Japanese animes better.
Uuuh Katara is looking nice. And she has kids? Wanna show me pics of them?

Oh I didn't even think about that, I was like "Well Toph is an adult Earthbender and the Boulder is an adult Earthbended..."

That being said, there weren't many notable characters in Toph's age range in the original series. If we're looking for a "celebrity couple" like Aang and Katara, she'd have to marry an older man.

I don't see how it's milking it -- fans are dying for more Avatar and it's a brand new plot, just the same universe.

And I liked Hey Arnold and Fairly Odd Parents, to name a couple.

He can't have a wife? Ever? At all? I think it's pretty disturbing that the Avatar can have children. I mean, you could be related to yourself. Aang and Zuko being ... 2nd Cousins or w/e is already pretty fucked.

Hellblaze123
08-25-2011, 02:15 PM
I never said that the new series wouldn't be good or anything, im just saying that like all other series, once they get something that is popular they have to milk it for every cent they can get out of it. I mean look at how they are milking DBZ now by cutting out all the filler, reducing it down to ending after the Cell Saga, and naming it Dragon Ball Kai. Same principle, i love DBZ, and i like DBK, but they have been milking it so damn dry the cows tits are pretty much torn off. So with Avatar they are pretty much STARTING to do the same thing. Now whether they will kill the series or end it with this nice sequel we will see.

Also side note, i wanna find the prick who made Dragonball Evolution and beat him to death with a bat with nails on it and is on fire >.<

Psy
08-26-2011, 06:38 PM
How the hell can you get mad at animators and producers for making and profiting from something people clearly want? You want something? Well then some one has to get paid for it. I don't see how anyone could complain about there being more of something that they like? In the case of dragon ball z I do nt see your point. The "original" is not even original. In fact you could say that the first dragon ball z shown here in America was being milked for all it was worth. They cut shows out and would paste episodes together mixing them up to make entirely new episodes so it would last longer (in other words "milking it"). The Kai series is what DBZ should have been in the first place and they are finally giving the people what they want. If I remember correctly one of the reasons Sailor moon stopped showing here in America was partly due to us butchering the show and cutting out episodes and piecing together new ones (the creator got pissed and refused to let us have the license anymore). There is also something about the last season that they wanted to change and the creator was like "oh he'll naw!".

Bacon_Barbarian
08-26-2011, 06:59 PM
No. This isn't like DBZ. At all. DBZ was MADE to continue by the editors. On multiple occasion. DBGT didn't even have Toriyama on board. Kai ... As Psy said, Kai is what the anime originally should have been.

LoK is different in two ways. First of all, it has the original directors on board, and second of all, it isn't being forced into production.

Fenn
08-26-2011, 09:22 PM
Just remembered another series I enjoyed that DIDN'T get milked: Danny Phantom.

Anyways on topic, what do people make of this "anti-bender" revolution? At first I thought it sounded cliche, but once I thought about it, it really fits into the world and is quite believable. I mean, even Sokka got jealous at one point (the episode where he got his sword) b/c he felt inferior to the benders. I can see others having this same feeling.

And apparently the rebels all know chi-blocking O_O

Bacon_Barbarian
08-26-2011, 10:19 PM
This isn't caused be jealousy though ... Right? Didn't they say that it was because they thought the benders were dangerous/no longer needed? Not to say people can't be motivated be jealousy anyway.

last time it was after a year but it was a big hit and the shows ended 5 months after the america one... so i just hope 6 months.
I could always download the eps from internet in english :>

Start: 21 februari 2005 (America)
1 april 2006 (Netherlands)
End: 19 juli 2008 (America)

I can't see them eliminating a unique, powerful group liek the benders on the grounds that they're useless. Bending is more useful than any other ability in that world.

Dangerous maybe. But why rise up 70 years after the event that is basically the posterchild of bending gone awry (Sozin's comet), rather than right after?

Bacon_Barbarian
08-28-2011, 10:35 PM
Well, Korra's suppose to be A LOT more steampunk, so I wouldn't be sure about them becoming less useful.

IDK about that though.

You're right.

Steam= Water + Heat. Firebenders are a near-limitless source of clean, renewable heat as well as electricity (lightning). And waterbenders can superheat water themselves anyway, making steam. Airbenders might be less useful but they can still pretty much fly. Lastly, Earthbenders have metalbending now, and metal is everywhere in steampunk if I'm correct.

So yeah, benders only become more useful and dangerous as technology advances.

The entire concept of Avatar is about this only individual who has to give stability to the world. In the Aang story, the whole balance was about the 4 nations and their benders, so obviously the benders form part of the big balance of this world. Killing the benders would mean destroying the balance (as happened with the genocide of the air bender monks), so obviously the "anti-benders" are gonna be the bad guys, but as every good story it can't be flat, so someone has to be the biggest bad guy in here. Specially because Aang grand son (?) is part of that revolution and the Avatar will have the obligation to talk with him.

With this said, I think the anti-bender revolution is just a fragment of the story, and it only gives a social layer for it, so at the moment there hasn't been any big plot spoiled. And if the whole story is about the anti bender revolution, it would be sad.

As I see it, bender have no real advantage in this world, Zokka proved it.

Idk, i hope you're right and there's more to the story. In fact, we know there is, since Korra's journey to becoming a full-fledged avatar can be considered part of the plot. But I wouldn't be disappointed if the revolution was the main conflict. It's probably a bigger deal that they've let us know.

Sokka can't lift a finger to the better benders. He's a greater warrior than your average Fire Nation soldier, but he stands no chance against the likes of Katara, Zuko, or Toph. Simply put, if you have two 100-man armies of equal skill, the benders beat the not benders every time. The only one who could truly put up a fight against expert benders is Ty Lee; I'm surprised you didn't use her as your example.

Yeah it originally was, but I believe they mentioned at Comic-Con an extension.

ClockHand
09-08-2011, 08:41 PM
I hope there is more in the story, it would bring more layers to it. And I disagree, Sokka might not be able to lift a finger to the better benders, but he can create something to do it. He is more of a creative character at the time of take action, than using skills.

Hey, I wasn't dissing Sokka. In fact, I think part of what impresses me about him is just that. He manages to contribute against the odds. He has to be more creative than the other characters because he has te inherent disadvantage of lacking bending ability.

In general, though, benders do have a very real advantage--for now. If it's true that the rebels have learned chi-blocking, then the combat gap between benders and non-benders just closed by a good margin.

Also yeah more layers would be nice.

Captain_Neko
09-11-2011, 08:11 PM
It's probable that the anti-benders have suits that allow them to imitate bending(i.e. Flamethrowers, fire hose, Possibly a fan). Of course, It's also probable that firebenders could control the fire from a flamethrower.

Um, chills down your spine anyone?

It's SO strange looking at a statue of Aang. I mean, I know how far in the future it is but it didn't really strike me until I saw the likeness of the main character from the original series embodied in a monument.

The art style is gorgeous and I love the new take on the old theme song.

The voice actor for Sokka, if I remember correctly, was confirmed to be returning to voice a character in the new series.



Also slightly off-topic, how epic would a 2D Last Airbender fighting game be? They certainly have the character-base for it. If this ever happens, I call Iroh.

Fenn

Hmmm. Why was she using so much Firebending if she's a Watertribe girl? Also, that was fucking sexy.

She's the Avatar, and already knows Wate, Fire, and Earthbending. And she knows them well. In some parts she's disguised as a firebending soldier it appears, so Waterbending would give it away. Also, she seemed to be fighting mostly firebenders, and if I'm not mistaken one of the best ways to block a fire attack is using more fire.

Bacon_Barbarian

I knew this already, but now that you mention it ... I wonder how the plot will be drive, since she's already so much more proficient then Aang. I also like how she's closer to the age of the original viewers. AA+

Fortunately I doubt you'll need to have watched every episode to enjoy this series. They know they'll have new viewers and wouldn't want to alienate them. That being said, I HIGHLY recommend you watch the last season, or, if nothing else, the absolutely phenomenal 4-part ending.

I'm curious, what about Aang bothered you that much?

Ozzaharwood

Oh, lol. Sorry, that sounded a little rude. It's not that I didn't like the original series, it's just that I didn't like Aang as the Avatar. I understand it was originally geared toward kids/teens, so they made a character that was relatable, but he just got on my nerves for some reason.

I don't really know, actually. It was a long time ago since I watched it, so I don't really remember. I was already planning on trying to re-watch some of it soon as well, so don't worry about that. :P

I think if you only got through season one, that's understandable.

The Nick channels, for a while, were only repeating late Season 3 episodes. This was great because the plot-driving episodes were epic, and even the "filler" episodes were great for character building and creating suspense for THE FINAL BATTLE.

Later, they replayed a bunch of season 1 episodes, and it's incredible to see how immature Aang was. To the point where I was like, "Did he really act this ignorant and oblivious?" He kinda annoyed me at that point too. But really, Season 1 had a far more whimsical tone to it, so I guess it makes sense.

If you can, I'd suggest watching Season 3. Aang has matured quite a bit by then, so he'll likely be less of a pain.

Bacon_Barbarian

Yeah exactly. It's INCREDIBLE just how much he changes, and how hard it was to notice on a simple episode-by-episode basis (kinda like how real people change). It wasn't until I looked back and thought: Jeez, is he really worried about penguin sledding right now? With all that's going on? Because the first time I saw it, the series had just started and no one realized the magnitude of the situation.

It's kind of a dark, ironic theme now, seeing how much fun he had at the beginning now that I've seen what the rest of the world was going through.

No he died in a hilariously ironic way, made up entirely by the diminished urgency to preserve or liberate the world from excessive boundaries, control, and feudal unthoughtfulness, and his tremendously elite skills to adeptly manipulate all the fundamental spiritual elements of the earth

ClockHand

I saw the first 2 episodes. Korra is annoying as hell, I understand they are making a strong female character, but her whole personality sucks asses, I would like this kind of self centered personality in a more lame character, but it's really annoying in her because she is the avatar. Typically this kind of personality get changed when clash with reality, but fuck, she is the avatar, she literally bends reality.

And the 2 brothers are so plane characters, they look like something you would see as a typo character with no real role on the story. And the deal is that this is not even making a comparison with the character of the previews avatar, because when you do, you can see a step back on the quality of the characters personality. Now this can be because it's not planed to be a long serie, so making elaborated characters would challenge the deadline of the serie; it also can be that the characters might go deep in further episodes, but really, their first appearance is nothing like when you first met Soka, Katara, Aang and Zuko.

I like that the city looks like something in the 30's and there are cars now, I also like that there is a movement against benders. Still, characters at the moment are very weak and they don't really drive me to keep watching (still I will do, with hope to eat my words and find the serie become better than what it is now).

Still, characters at the moment are very weak and they don't really drive me to keep watching (still I will do, with hope to eat my words and find the serie become better than what it is now).


TBH, Korra was always raised in isolation, so she doesnt know much of the " world ", i think they are going to further develope her personailty as well, i mean her personality is probably one of the reasons she can't connect with the spirit world, and as a avatar she will have to change that, since when can a avatar bend reality, she is meant to CHANGE, however i think she will have to change :l ... So i don't really see the big problem here... But she definitly needs to become a bit smarter, but no one is perfect and the avatar is human for a reason as well (recalls episode where aang was thaught that)

And true dat on the story thing/first appearance , i heard this serie will only have 26 episodes while ATLA had 62... BUT a lot can still happen in 26 episodes, and maybe MAYBE more, since they havent started book 2 yet? (i read this somewhere) ALSO i've heard that there will be an animation coming of the promise but im not really sure... The promise is AFTER the ATLA ending, but what i didnt get is why they didnt air that now, but my sister said it was that the idea of korra was supposed to come when ATLA was still ongoing, and they didnt know how many die-hard fans would come and wonder what would happen or something, but like i said I'M NOT SURE.

Just watched episode 3, a lot of stuff going down every episode, a bit too fast actually... But it looks promising!
And i was really hyped, when i was watching it the 25 minutes seemed like 5 minutes xD..

Also i'm a bit scared of the whole romance thing, not that there wasn't romance in ATLA, but i hope they don't thicken it too much because ATLA was more than just romance, so i'm hoping this too... (the fangirls are scary, very scary about the romance D: ) I blame the trailer with the kiss!

Man episode 6 was intense. @_@

Byakuran
05-14-2012, 10:23 AM
I feel like there's a lot of nothing in the episode and in the last 5 minutes BAM.

I feel like Korra was being p. unresponsible so was Bei Fong, i think it would have been better not to hold the compition. It's not that they should amon do what he want, but he had a plan and it all felt like a trap. It's good that amon doesn't really KILL them, but taking bending away is pretty extreme, like Tahno said bending is his life :l ... I do think the episode showed us that chi-blocker revolution just started and that Bei Fong and Korra will have some bonding time. But other than that i'm always comparing the shows? Something still feels a bit missing, like i'm not connected to the characters :l ... hmmm Also i believe Amon can't take the bending away like aang did, but he BLOCKS the bending (not just a chii point, or maybe the most important chi point that can't be restored even if you leave it for a while) And that Korra should find herself a Guru, people said that korra may have a difficult Time because of Aangs chakra point was blocked... but i don't think so. After the episode with amon and she cried we haven't seen anything of her spiritual side anymore, it feels like she hasn't learned anything at all... OHWELL i miss the Gaang.

jaidurn
05-14-2012, 11:21 AM
Yeah, it's p. intense.


But yeah, I agree with the point that Amon isn't fully energy bending. I mean, Aang lit up like a beacon when he did it. It also took a longer time than what Amon's doing. It totally doesn't make sense.

Also, I think that Korra needs to learn some of the minor bending if she can. (Which she should be able to as she's the avatar, but I dunno)
That'd have helped her if she could redirect the lightning like Zuko and Zuko's Uncle could.

Byakuran
05-14-2012, 11:48 AM
Hmm

I agree she has to learn to Metalbend, Bloodbend, Lightingbend... BUT Aang didn't learn all sub-bendings, i've never seen him bloodbend tbh, or lighting BEND (not talking about redirection Or i dont remember him doing it), or combustion. I think the lighting isn't really something you can redirect, i mean Mako should've been able to, but they get shoked which is i think a BIT different than lighting, not sure tbh.
It's like the " lighting " is coming from more than one point to redirect it and it happens REALLY fast?

I think korra needs to GET HER SPIRITUAL ASS UP D:<, Learn something about chi and chakra stuffff. Maybe they should wear metal and plastic on top of the Metal suites.

jaidurn
05-14-2012, 11:56 AM
Eh.


Yeah, because Aang didn't do it I'm not sure if the Avatar actually can do it. :\ But if anything Korra should be able to Bloodbend seeing as she's from the Water tribe just as an origin. Mako probably hasn't learned about lightning redirection because he hasn't needed to/hasn't had the chance. Even though it may be hitting multiple spots, I'm sure that Mako could at least learn to focus it and make his fingers like lightning rods.

Also, yeah. Korra really needs to focus on the spiritual side of her training. Aang was always good at that because that was his lifestyle. I think that Korra's attitude towards it is what's keeping her from being able to reach the spirit world. She's pretty lazy.

The plastic over the metal wouldn't help, seeing that they need to allow holes for the metal to come through. Bei Fong doesn't even wear a helmet so how's that supposed to protect her?

AlmanacnamedTime

That was always distracting to me. Like. He body is just a little too idealistic to me (even though they tried to make it "nonstandard"by making her muscular—EVEN MORE REASON TO HAVE NO BOOBS).

* subterranean houses, actually

And what wood the Inuit do use is driftwood. I like the North Water Tribe worldbuilding better because at least they have like a flippin' snow kingdom, whereas the designers for the South Pole were like "lol Alaska Native lol igloos lol."

Clock: The creators of the show said that both water tribes were inspired by Inuits/Inupiaq.

"Lol they control water, Lol." Again, if you think about it, if you can control water/snow, then making igloos is not that crazy.

Sure, but it's a whole heck of a lot less intuitive than making a snow house. And if they control water, then how come they still bothered to make the brick pattern of an igloo?

But that's not really the point. The point is that the stereotype of native culture in that show is a wee bit icky.

One thing (of the many things that bugged me about the movie) is that Zuko was tan, and really people! You could hardly see his scar, he has pale skin!!! Pale skin used to mean royalty! i walked out after about half the movie, i just could'nt stand it! Thank god i didnt pay to see it at the movies, i would want a mager refund of time and money.
But i think Korra (herself) is really funny. i kinda hope she and Mako dont end up together. is that weird?

Lol, no, there were a ton of Asians in that film. The entire Fire Nation was from India. XD

Aside from the whitewashed cast, I didn't like the movie, because it was extremely plot-driven and barely character-driven, which is really unlike season 1 of the show. The characters we really flat with no development and the worldbuilding was... eh, less than compelling.

And why is Aang so dang serious the whole time?

It's anime, so the Asianness quotient of the characters is debatable.

Earth Nation actually reminds me of the Eurasian border, like Turkey.

ClockHand
05-19-2012, 03:00 AM
Dunno, for my everyone of them are Asians. Fire Nation Japanese with some Hindu architecture (in the most ancient parts), Earth Nation Chinese (Ba Sing Se is very evident), Water Tribes would be Inuits and Air Nomads (weird being a nomad with places to live) are very tibetan. Of course I'm doing this assumption under their architect distinctions. I would challenge the idea of Earth Nation look like Eurasian borders, specially because their architecture is nothing like that, where in Eurasian borders you have a lot of use of Lintel and use of iron and steel for designs in windows (which come from Arabic traditions) for the common building, while the political or ceremonial buildings use Vault in their sealing, towers and the whole structure have a semblance to Byzantine architecture.

Now giving an example why I believe Ba Sin Se looks more like a classic Chinese architecture, well I will just let this picture:
http://www.chinaonyourmind.com/images/dian.jpg
http://images.wikia.com/avatar/es/images/f/fb/Sector_alto.png
They use the same bilateral symmetry characteristic of ancient Chinese architecture, enclosure of important spaces (or even social spaces for a elite) and its completely hierarchical, in the sense as you can see, the development of spaces frame the social classes and political importance.

I believe, the most easy to argue about its the Fire Nation, it seems Japanese, Chinese and at the same time none of them, and this is not because is not based in one of those, but the fact that it has been extended and dramatized.

Edit:
Re-thinking about the fire nation, they are most likely to be based on Mongolian architecture.

Ep. 7 was one of the lamest episodes ever.

Wasn't the Earth Kingdom based on China, Fire Kingdom on Japan, Air nomads on like buddhist monks? and Water Tribe on Inuits...
(just like what clock said lmao XD)

Ofcourse not everything is like the same.. and lol at those igloooos. It's oke SF maybe one day, they will get like HOUSES. Maybe its just easier to make igloos for them since they just go like " waterbennndd " i don't know xD

Culturally those are the tribe bases, but I'm talking about actual race. The race of the characters is ambiguous because everyone looks homogenized except for the Water Tribe—which look nothing like Inuit (perhaps racist? /shrug). That makes me inclined to say that the races of each of the kingdoms don't match up with their real world cultural equivalents.

I feel unable to do any racial assumption if is not through material references. The thing is that, as those are drawings, they are just simplifications of the reality, or abstractions of it, which make us impossible to assume any kind of racial affirmation about them just be looking the physical features. While in contra-position, we can do racial, and in this case is better so say, cultural assumption according to material references as architecture, cloth, places or even non-material references like tradition on tea, and dance. By saying this, making a racial assumption under the cultural references displayed wouldn't be wrong, because the use of those culture's materiality, is the only tangible evidence we have that, even so it has been selected, it's still resemblance a cultural and racial ideal in our heads.

Also, yeah, its quiet racist the deal with the Inuits, but to be fair, the whole world is quiet racist.

Because sucking dick is associated with being one of the two lowest forms of life, a woman or a gay man. Both are often considered less than human and anything they do is thought of as bad.

oh its a long subject and I would have to rewrite everything I already discussed with Bya. Short story, the show has been going in a waterfall of cliches and rushing the story in some aspects while giving longer phase in less important aspects, specially less important as they have failed to create a empathic bridge between Korra and the audience. This is being reflected by the fact that Amon is way more interesting as Korra, even so we know almost nothing about Amon and he is way less under the spotlight as Korra.

The argument is long and there are plenty of points in why this "story of avatar" is being in downfall from the beginning.

Bacon_Barbarian
05-22-2012, 02:35 AM
Aang wasn't really interesting or really someone people could empathize with by episode 7 either, and having an engaging villain is crucial to having an engaging story.

ClockHand
05-22-2012, 02:49 AM
Aang: lost his people, considered the last air bender (without him the cycle is broken), he is a kid, infantile, have to stop a war and more.

Korra: She is a teenager, she can't connect to the spirit world or the other avatars, problems in air bending.

Tell me, which one of these two avatars have problems that create more empathy? and Which of them has better layers in its personality? And also, you are saying "he doesn't become interesting until episode 7", even if he becomes interesting until episode 10, the rate is way better as in that moment we are still in the introduction, we are still understanding the characters and the world, and we have 61 episodes, getting to meet and understand a character in episode 7 of 61 is pretty good, its a pretty solid moment to go in depth in a character. While with Korra we have 10 episodes (?), we haven't got a reason to care about her (she is basically presented as the avatar and that's the whole reason we should care), she have no posture against Amon (Amon have an idea, equality, while Korra fight him because "is right", while we don't know why is that right, why is Amon wrong? and even if we can disagree with the violence with which he acts, as his idea is still not proven wrong, we can still empathies with the idea more than what Korra present us), and the whole main story is being constantly driven by the conflict and not the decision of the characters, and even when it's driven by characters decisions, it's made in a very bad quality like Korra listening a conversation of the owner of the car company, talking with Amon(?). In a nutshell, the only thing that support the serie right now are the fans, because the quality of the serie has dropped a lot.

Just gonna go to say that Zuko was one of the best villains of all time.

ClockHand
05-22-2012, 04:27 AM
But why did we liked Zuko that much? Because we could empathy's with him, we knew about his relationship with his father, and how that become the reason for him to being a villain. Zuko was good and interesting for us, because we understood him and we could feel related in some level with him.

Prove enough that empathy is important and in this serie of Avatar hasn't been taken seriously.

Bacon_Barbarian
05-22-2012, 09:45 AM
As of episode 7, Aang was nothing close to a layered character, though he was more pitiable. And we've got 20+ for Korra, by the by. Anyway, not quite sure what you mean by posture, but I think I get yah. And the thing is that she does. You're right in part that we're suppose to care about Korra mainly because the avatar, but we're also suppose to care as both her and Amon's actions have pretty large consequences for the world they live in.

Amon quite obviously has some Hitler-esque themes going into him, wanting to cleanse benders of there abilities as it were, were it not a kid's show he'd probably be into genocide, not really sure how the idea of breaking people can be viewed as anything but evil. There's also some pretty good character development going on. For example, when Korra cries at the end of the episode where she was ambushed and Lin deciding to go help Korra and quit the policeforce instead of going after Amon herself. If anything this is more character driven then the first season of A:TLA. Pretty much all of episode 5 was character building.

05-22-2012, 02:26 PM
I just don't like TLoK as much as AtLA because the pace is wildly fast, and the characterization obviously took a hit in that department. That's all due to the fact that TLoK is a miniseries, though, so I can't really complain about it too much. But yeah, I liked AtLA because every single villain was worthy of my understanding and sympathy. I'm waiting for something like that to happen to Amon's characterization
Other than him taking a firebender to the parents, because LOL THAT TROPE IS GETTING OLD. (I wanna see a genocidal water or earthbender. XD )

I like the show honestly but I do see a problem with korra. Shes pretty selfish. Shes had things handed to her her entire life and people taking care of her so there is this sense of entitlement to her. She is a teenager so thats to be expected and Ang went thru some "Im the avatar so you should be impressed" kinda moments but Korra is almost milking it. They really should have played up the caged bird part of her (you know. She has everything she could want and all these people there for her but she is still almost a slave to being the avatar and her training never getting to see the real world) for more fan support. Instead it was like "Y u no let me have fun?! I H8 it here! IMA RUN AWAY YOU CANT STOP ME!!! teen angst!'. She even said she has just always had people that took care of her, so shes never worked for anything and still feels like she has the short end of the stick. Maybe that will all play into how she grows as a person and the avatar but for now shes a bit of a spoiled brat.

Mr_Liebe
05-22-2012, 03:27 PM
I started disliking Korra at around.... maybe episode 1 or 2, when she comes across an anti-bending rally, and instead of trying to understand their stance, and how they feel about the attitudes of the majority of the benders have towards them, she basically says "You're stupid, bending is awesome, I really want to knock you down for expressing your beliefs. Hopefully, as the show goes on, she matures, and begins to learn the views of not just benders, but also non benders.

Psy
05-30-2012, 12:11 AM
My theory on who Amon is.

I think it's tarlock (sp?). I think the whole fire bender killed my family thing is a lie. I think he is taking away bending but he's doing it by using chi blocking plus water bending to some how super block the chi flow of benders. He wants to be the only bender in the world because that would possibly make him the strongest person in the world. Some holes to be filled but it's what I came up with.

Edit to add to this.
So you know where I came up with this I was thinking that we all know that it's possible to heal a person from a chi blocking as well as control a person using blood bending so why isint it possible to make a chi blocking worse using bending? It seems possible since we are mostly water and if chi or pressure points can be affectedby water bending healers it should be possible to do in a combo.

The thing is that they do have an idea and a belief that goes beyond "that's cool". And not because they are Nazis they shouldn't be listened, there is obviously a problem; and such problem is the reason of their behavior. Meanwhile Korra's argument is "bending is cool".

There are 2 episodes more, I believe, in which it has to be proven that Korra can be more than what she is right now, which at the moment is quiet sad.
