The Spirit of Competition
Woah, back up… Did Korra just say to Mako: “I really like you and I think we were meant for each other” AND kiss him on the lips? *blink blink* I’m stunned. Truly I am. I thought she’d deny her feelings much longer, saving her confession for the very end. But no, Korra just goes for it…at episode five. It’s nice to see another show airing this season to break that cliche, whilst making fun of other ones! Seriously, she caught me off guard pretty good. At the end of the day, they all learn to deal with their feelings in more mature ways. Awesome! But let’s not forget Bolin’s heartbroken reaction… He is one hilarious dude.
I loved their battles in the arena. It was entertaining to see how their attitudes affected the way they played. For instance, Bolin saves the second match in a one-on-one fashion when Korra and Mako are at odds, then Korra saves the final match against all three opponents when Bolin is too heartbroken to play well. I thought they just had to win, especially after that arrogant new challenger appeared, and they indeed manage to narrowly pull it off. The animation doesn’t dwindle one bit! I’m looking forward to their next big match. Gotta take a break from Amon sometimes while he’s happily plotting away somewhere. :3
I’m not really sure how I feel about the new girl Mako is dating. Sure, she was used for the love triangle, but that’s been settled for the moment. There must be something else planned for her, perhaps something that’ll turn Mako off. It just can’t be this good, can it? xD
Well, I am loving The Legend of Korra more and more. It has given me a reason to get up on Saturday mornings and turn on the TV to Nickelodeon, just like old times. :3
