The Legend of Korra
Thanks to Justin and Doofus, I decided to check out the new Avatar series. First off, for those who don’t know, I didn’t grow up with Avatar. I was finishing up high school when it first aired and wasn’t watching much television anymore, let alone Nickelodeon. I regret it now, because I’ve always heard great things about it. You know, how it’s the best American cartoon ever and resembles anime so much. Just recently, I watched the first three episodes of the old Avatar and the first two episodes of this. Both series are indeed impressive, but I like the start of the sequel the best.
Honestly, I’m loving everything about it. As the new Avatar, Korra is training to master the four elements, but air-bending doesn’t come natural to her. She’s too impatient and hot headed, for one thing. The main attraction of this series for me is to see how she manipulates elements with slick moves and tries to fit in at Republic City, where benders and non-benders mingle together. The animation is excellent, and there’s lots of humor in the character’s facial expressions and dialogue. This is all true of the first Avatar as well, but I just take a stronger liking to Korra and this type of setting. Her enemies are anti-benders called the Equalists, so this should be pretty interesting, eh?
I’m very curious to know what the rest of you guys think, especially old fans. I believe the third episode won’t air until late April,
so I’ll make up my mind about blogging it after that. *blogging* :3
