    'Temp's favorite Avatar comes back to rock the servers. This is where we will discuss the newest season of The Legend of Korra. I'm not really excited but I'm sure someone here is!

    After Book 2 just tanked in quality I won't be wasting my time watching this. Once this series is over, lets hope the creators move on to something else.

    I had bad impressions about this show once I heard they outsourced their animation to the clowns who do Naruto and Bleach.

    Then I tried watching Book 2 and holy shit was it bad.

    Book 1 was okay but this show is going towards Dexter-levels of awfulness, but at least Dexter had arguably 3-4 good seasons before it died out.

    Why do I get the vibe that the series will end with Korra using energy bending on the entire planet so everyone can be equal. Every season always has the same plot, Equality, Equal rights, #YesAllWomen, etc.


    Sidenote: Also, Armless waterbender? Genius?

    Gambia, The
    when was last season about equality and equal rights? i must've missed that.
    and that doesnt seem very logical to me honestly. the season will end, more likely, with the reestablishment of the air nation and republic city and its president going batshit over a new nation appearing just like that, drawing us to the most likely conclusion hinted at even back in season one - politics vs avatar culture.


    as for genius escapees. well obviously they're specialists in their respective fields of bending. the ground guy who uses the power of friction and pressure to create heat (i somewhat expect him to be related to xin fu), the limbless woman who overcame her disability, and what is most likely azulas daughter with the combustion techniques. they're all talented and special. and that guy who was immediately an air bending master for no good reason (I excpect him to have another talent that made him part of this group of marauders)
    the last of whom is, as of now, my only problem with the new season. it didnt really make sense how he has immediate control over that whole bending thing, enough to instantly overwhelm a group of supposedly trained white lotus prison guards. (damn you white lotus, what kind of point were you trying to make, just locking these people up?)
    but the idea that you specifically need arm and hand movements to control bending has always been somewhat dumb and eventually inconsistent. they obviously are helpful because they focus what they do and obviously are what every new bender would need to get the hand out of things, but in the end, bending was always a spirit power, so the armless woman is as good an example of technique being mainly for training purposes and pretty much unnecessary, as is uncle bumis frantically punching the air without effect.


    for the first two episodes, I'm positively surprised. I didnt exactly check for animation quality, but it seemed fine to me.
    korra is still mainly how she was before, easily frustrated and jumping personalities, but for the moment, its not that big a deal to me. i do however see problems with a growing cast of secondary characters. should they be able to consistently recruit new airbenders now, i fear they might run into that inazuma eleven syndrom, where every characte ends up being rather flat and only getting one sudden character change as time moves on. (like the thief who'll be all thiefy and badboy but eventually will truly clean up his act to win back air bender girls heart).

    but, on the positive side, at least theres a slight chance that, for a while, they will do what the avatar did back in the original series. just move from place to place and fix one overseeable problem in some small town at a time

    That person seems to be really spiritual and seem to have study the Airbenders a lot. It didn't happen too quickly. He's basically a prodigy. He was probably a great fighter before.

    Probably as a example to other benders, not that it seems to be working out. :P

    It really comes down to spirit and skills.

    Look at the people she has to deal with. She did try to reason with them.

    So do I wait until the series end and then watch it just because it is Avatar or is it worth doing it as they come out?

    I'd just avoid the series altogether, but that's just me being cynical.
