Much better than Avatar- The Last Airbender
blasphemy theres not enough beifong
Lies, fairytales and fallacies!
“It was suppose to inspire you!” -says to Tenzin
Those kids throwing snowballs at everyone XD
(Sigh) I really miss Aang. The Last Airbender was so much better.
yes. i agree hundred percent. i miss Aang so much :C
Dont get caught up in Nostaliga this is still good
I miss Aang too. I loved the first season of this even though the character I dislike most is Korra! DX As a fellow female who went through puberty, teenage life is super complicated then throw on the whole world on your shoulders thing and I know she has it tough… but I hate her personality. I mean she’s older than Aang but he was more mature and clear sighted when it came to certain decisions as an eight year old. And the group doesn’t have the same cohesiveness Aang and his group had. It’s lacking that feeling of bondage.
8 year old? Aang was 12. Well technically like 112. But anyway, Aang seemed more mature and all that because of how the Monks taught him. Korra didn’t get that same upbringing. Everyone was always praising her for being the Avatar, hence her cocky nature. I do agree with the second part you said though. The current group doesn’t seem to mesh as well.
Would you expect the writers to just make a water tribe girl version of Aang? Everyone is different. You know all Avatars have a different persona and the team Avatar can’t always mesh. They have differences too. Every Avatar is different and every person is different they leave in a different time for Pete’s sake.
I can’t stand Korra but i’m going to continue watching because i love this show and i only hope with time she becomes more lovable cuz rite now i would much rather watch Tenzin and his fam then her.
man korra is so mean i hope she changes attitudes shhessh!!
I agree totaly
i don’t get it, its the same fucking series but people still say its horrible i enjoy Legend of Korra to the max and its not only because of the fighting, sometimes we just need a twist from the original series and thats what Korra is, they’re basically just saying that not all the Avatars story lines are the same and we should not think its is the same, Korra isn’t Aang. Avatar the last air bender and Legend of Korra is equally good in their own way. but when it comes to the time period i admit it might have turned out better if it did not exist cars and planes all those industrial shit.
I agree with everything I just read
wow! swear much. my cousins wanted to watch this show but they couldn’t because of the repeated use of bad words!!!!
how is it your problem if I’m swearing. That has nothing to do with you.
Wow if your cousins cant hear bad words… They must never be allowed out of the house. You sir are a retard. Welcome to the internet.
Soooo . . . you’ll let your cousins watch a show where people fight with each other but get offended when someone swears? Makes sense.
Fuck you and Fuck your cousins. Watch this on nick.com if it’s a big deal. Use your tiny little brain retard. As Chris said, welcome to the internet.
I think what makes it hard for people to grasp is the time difference. It’s a new avatar completely. I forget if they say exactly how long between now and the end of the last air bender, but if I had to guess, I’d say at least 70 years. It’s a long time technology-wise. Just to put that into perspective and make this more believable, we went from the invention of a flying machine to going into space within 50 years and put a person on the moon and back in a little over 60 years. As for the style, steampunk is very common for transitions for shows like this. Especially since it doesn’t get rid of a totally distant change from what used to be, but obviously pretty modern comparatively. It’s a pretty good transitional art style if you think about it.
This show is much much worse than TLA
i couldn’t agree more. I dont feel as attached to the characters as i did with Avatar the last airbender
lmao the only comments i see are people complaining about korra or the show
I couldn’t have put it better, especially the part about Zuko’s voice. That got me too nostalgic and brought back great memories. To their credit, this is a really great sequel but nothing can ever top the legend of aang
they might make a special video with the old characters find Zuko’s mom after the Legend of Korra like they did make a comic book just right after Katara and Ang kiss
Its a 3 part graphic novel called the search. It covers Zuko’s mom. Thats why they never went over it.
i hope they would make series from the comics. there would be at least 2 seasons from them. like 1 season where they find Zuko’s mother, and 1 where general old iroh spirit attacks to the city where Toph’s father lives
If they did that, they’d have to find a new kid to be the voice of Aang. Zach Tyler was around the age of Aang when they did the series, while the other actors were older than the characters they were playing.
I hate how they rushed into her mastery of the Avatar State. It took Aang multiple seasons to master it and it only took Korra like 10 episodes.
The Last Airbender was good but it’s definitely good to see some change in the setting, characters and plot. Although this series is (currently) lacking character development, we can start to see some character development in Korra. IMO it’s good to see someone really struggle to be the Avatar. I mean, Aang struggled in his own way but he didn’t have parents and authority figures such as Unalak affecting his choices. The fact that Korra is starting to make her own choices (like choosing to go with Unalak instead of her father) shows that she’s becoming more independent as the Avatar and maybe one day she’ll be as wise as Aang. Korra has a lot more pressure on her when performing her duties as Avatar. EVERYONE knows who she is. Whereas with Aang, everyone had given up on the Avatar returning so nobody expected him to help them.
As for the changed culture- personally I LOVE some of the new changes to the culture. It’s interesting to see the Avatar have to adapt to the new surroundings (like not being able to tear up roads etc with Earthbending). And the 20th Century Manhattan mixed with Hong Kong creates a very unique environment with an unusual mix of cultures that seems to work well. I’m not sure about the Sato-mobile though.. The idea was fine but the way they made ‘Team Avatar’ patrol in their own ‘bat-mobile’ like vehicle was so cringey and cliche…
TLA was good and so is TLOK. They both had their good points and their bad points.
For those who complain about TLOK being too modern, just remember they had huge fuck off drills and ships and other ‘industrial shit’ back in TLA 😉
Then don’t watch it then if you hate it
To those who keep saying they miss Legend of Aang and all the characters, please grow up and stop living in the past! Everybody grows old and die. People need to understand that. We develop bonds with the characters from the first series but we can also grow and get attached with these new characters. I really miss Aang, Katara, Sokka & Toph but I also adore the characters in this show. This thread only shows some people can grow old but not grow up… it saddens me. This show is just as awesome as The Last Airbender.
you sound like my sister.
korra is such a bitch this seaon
No he wasn’t , smart alec!!!
LOL their laugh 6:32
I miss them all.
both bumi’s have so much in common.
hey what happened to that i’m gonna steal your face dude?
This season started with Korra being a major teenage-tantrum throwing bitch, really. Finally nice to see her cool her jets down by the third episode, even if it was at the end.
Seriouslly Korra had it easy.. if we compear her to aang.. she had her parents aang didnt.. he was raised by the monks she should be more respectful twords her Parents.. Plus she gets to visit them.. She had all the teachers Ready to train her.. yet she complains..
That what I told people I don’t even watch this series.
How many times have you complained about school? Because that’s virtually the same thing when comparing kids in lesser developed countries.
youre right about that.. kids do complain.. but did u see aang complaining.. he was excited to get fire water earth teachers.. and that was not my point about schools.. my point was everything was handed to her just like that.. and she was acting disrispectful.
But Aang was raised by Airbender monks. He was raised his whole life to be grateful for everything, to not worry about material things. Contrast that with growing up in a more practically-minded society like the Water Tribe. Korra wasn’t taught since her birth to be grateful, she’s been ordered around, kept hidden, and told to follow the guidance of some secret society all her life. She’s got a lot more desire to be independent and make her own decisions than Aang, because Aang was raised to be non-material and at peace with himself
everyone gets caught up on the originals so much and doesnt really give sequels a chance. i think this show is awesome. if you didnt compare so much youd enjoy the show alot more. i thought the ending of the first season was super badass and the twist of aman being a blood bender made it even better.
Korra needs some serious wooping.
Im probably going to receive a lot of hate but I like Korra more than Aang
“Oppa ate Momo!!!”
The story is progressing way to quickly. They aren’t taking the tine to develop the story or provide much character development. The relationship of the new Team Avatar is no where on the level as Aangs. Sokka, Momo, and Appa just don’t have worthy replacements.
Well, considering that the second season was so suddenly demanded by Nick, it would make sense that the second season did not receive as much planning as the first season.
yeah i really miss zuko. i agree this is pretty good but its no avatar the last airbender. i loved toff! and her daughter is a little bit like her but its just not the same.
i totally agree!!
The voice actor of Korra’s mother sounds like the voice of Mai from The Last Airbender.
Korra’s mother’s voice is Mei’s voice from Avatar the Last Airbender (Zuko’s girlfriend).
wait who has taken zokus place
Korra is such a biotch.
That’s a bold statement, Cotton! That might be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard (exaggeration, but still pretty dumb). The only avatar you could make a comparison to is aang’s, who was raised an air bender among monks. And he was just the second latest installment of literally hundreds of previous avatars.
I can believe it to an extent. Think about the time period as well. Aang was the only air bender. And his son was the only one of the 3. So you’d think that naturally, they would bond more so than the other 2. And it wasn’t as if
Guys, shut up about A:tLA being so much better. Don’t like this show? Don’t watch it. Gosh. Stop disturbing people who actually enjoy both.
” wish they didn’t make this ” you didn’t have to watch it. If they didn’t make it you’d be begging for an Avatar squeal lol.
Ah, yes…. “I am a Great Spiritual Leader and if you don’t believe in worshiping as I do I will invade your country by force and KILL you”
Zuko’s voice named after Iro. I cried. T~T
Kora is such a bitch, she things she all good and thinks she can handle everything by her self!!! so annoying! >.<
Korra seems annoying, always getting herself into trouble then suprised about it. It’s like I can just tell these ppl are already bad. She treats her family and friends like shit when nothing goes her way, just a spoiled brat. Aang was a lot better and more caring towards ppl. 🙁
“I wish they didn’t make it” is a selfish request since everyone entitled to watch the sequel or stop watching it, knowing full well that the story based on its continuation of a new avatar instead of the previous one. When I first started LoK, the cover alone is enough of a hint to tell me that “this is not gonna be the same, old characters either died or grow old”, to be honest, there are a lot of warning already. Plus, your comment is right on season 2 episode 3, shouldn’t you had stop when you watched the first episode of season 1? I mean you already saw the old Katara right? She not gonna magically growing young again nor everyone else magically revive.
I got a feeling some people watch this series just so that they could find as much mistakes as possible to insult it (even to the smallest details) since most of us butthurt about losing the old characters. Every comments section I go, there will be people who said “I miss this, I miss that, etc etc.” (even though they already finished the anime up to this point)- shouldn’t those type of comments reserved for season 1 episode 1? Not that I don’t respect your opinion, you can say whatever you wanted. But remember, the creators wanted this series to be DIFFERENT. There is no way in hell Korra gonna be the same as Aang. That’s is the reason why I find the character to be fascinating. If Korra acted like Aang from head to toes, to being a wise kid, surrounded with tranquility and wisdom from the monks, duh, it would be boring. It’s like a second Aang with a different name, each Avatar supposed to be their individual.
Family issues everywhere…
hmm all this symptoms point only to one diagnose: She’s a Woman 😛
-No Offense intended- (actually very few humans know what they want )
omg Korra srsly sucks everything others tell her.
Hmm compared to ATLA i definitely like ATLA better than LOK so far, but that’s not to say LOK isn’t good in its own right. I just enjoyed ATLA far more. LOK’s storyline i do love, as well as the modern way of things which is interesting (i felt that the whole boxing thing was a pretty smart move on from the traditional martial arts, and hey who doesn’t love a bit of steam punk?), but character-wise it seems very lacking. Now, the first villain was great in his complexity, but the protagonists? They’re just a little difficult to like (personally speaking) and haven’t got much depth to them as compared to what we’ve seen previously in ATLA with each of their unique quirks and intriguing personalities; in fact they just seem very generic.
Team Avatar’s bonds are a far cry from that which we know from BoomerAang which is disappointing, but understandable seeing as the makers have decided to throw in all this complicated romantic relationship conflict that would never have had the time to happen in ATLA. The two shows seem to have a fundamentally different focus, and i think it’s personal preference that leads me to not enjoy Korra as much as ATLA; simply because Korra’s focus on interpersonal drama (with all the unreasonably short fuses, selfishness, etc.) rather than ATLA’s fundamental spirit of freedom and discovery and adventure, as well as deep bonds between friends, isn’t as interesting to me.
It’s been a season already, but apart from individual abilities, there doesn’t seem to be any character development at all. Something happens, and someone reacts. In the same predictable way as they always have. They didn’t learn anything from the first major conflict that happened, nothing about them has been advanced and to this end, it almost feels like the plot of it was done for the sake of cheap thrills.
This being said, i’m pretty much measuring Korra with the standard that ATLA set. Korra by itself, without comparison to ATLA, is separately still very enjoyable (big win over most cartoons we’ve watched), and i suspect teenagers would be able relate to it more, hence why i cannot fall in love with Korra the same way i did with Aang.
To end, i feel that with ATLA, there is a kind of deep-seated beauty of it all. Morality, freedom, tradition and a deep sense of the spiritual underlies it. With Korra, what we see is a much closer reflection of our own realities. The people we meet in Korra, we can meet in real life. But with ATLA, it’s far rarer to meet someone as kind and forgiving as Aang.
I love how everybody is bitching about Korra when MAKO just straight out said that he’s glad he broke up with Asami and that he’s better off without her even though she’s one of the kindest and nicest characters in this show and she did NOTHING to deserve being treated like that. Korra may be confused and irrational, but Mako is a selfish dick and he doesn’t even deny that.
Korra is being a little bitch
Why does the intro always explain something that didnt happen in the last episode?
Guys, seriously. It is the ONE Avatar spirit in ALL of the Avatars. Kyoshi, Roku, and Aang all gave the same feeling (to me anyways). Despite all the differences in style, all of them made an impression of a deep, strong, and responsible person, because the spirit is the SAME. Korra had to have a bit of that in her, but she is NOTHING like Aang! She looks at the world through the eyes of a moody girl. Aang had so much more dignity, he could SENSE the difference between people that should be trusted, and the ones that shouldn’t. Korra can’t. I salute to all those who really love the show; I respect your choice. But the only reason I am watching it is to see how the Avatar world turned out – it’s still Konietzko and DiMartino’s piece. + I started rewatching The Last Airbender right after I finished it, because the more I watch, the more meaning opens to me. ~
Didn’t catch that before, but Meelo gives a bit of foreshadowing of the final episode. When Pema asks him and Jinora about Ikki, he says that the bison told him not to worry that a giant was coming.
She is the exact opposite of Aang! Aang never wanted to be the avatar and wanted a normal childhood, Korra didn’t want a normal childhood and wanted to be the avatar. As well I resent Unalaq’s comment that she could “become the most admired avatar the world has ever known” when we all know that will forever be Aang!
i dont understand people who keep hating on this yet continue to watch it to the ending lol
The twin’s laughs XD
MY COMPUTER WONT PLAY THIS ONE >=-(
my computer wont let me play it on any player.
Wow I thought that lok sucked I was wroung
Rip sokka died because reasons
I could have sworn the voice actor of Eska was the same voice actor of Raven from Teen Titans.
the little girl go
The sound syncing seems a little off
for fuck sake stop whining i don’t say you can’t comment about the last airbender but serously this is just getting anoying once twice or even the third time is okay but for crying out loud i have seen so many comments with euuuh korra sucks euuuh the last airbender was better yes well thank you i also thought that but i don’t need to see it every fucking episode DEALL WITH THE NEW TEAM AVATAR
BRINGING AN ARMY IS A BIT MUCH ISN’T IT
They can do better
Sociological Theme: Imperialism, Independence, Revolutions
A civil war of the tribes. Not worse than angry Katara though…
Is it just me or does korra not get much boost from the avatarstate. Aang could blow up entire temples but Korra can barely get soome speed from an airscooter.
