When I first was watching this, I thought this wasn't a kids show, because of how dark it was. This show was a masterpiece! This show has the BEST animation I've ever seen, it contains loads of excitement at every turn, it has an excellent storyline, and you'll instantly fall in love with this show once you watch it. It has an excellent villain, but not as detailed heroes, but besides the fact that the show was rushed and the characters were weak in detail, I can't help but give this show a 10! Every single area of this show is perfect! A must see!
A little information what is going to happen in Book 2 (Spirits)
Korra tries to master the Avatar State and airbending as hope arises. However, problems seem to find a way into her life once again.
When a mysterious group, called the Dragon Men, try to capture Korra everything seems to fall out of balance. The Dragon Men are a fierce group who used to be run by the ultimate villain, Yakone. After his bending was taken away when he tried to rule Republic City from its criminal world, he swore vengeance on the Avatar. Yakone fled to the Northern Water Tribe and the Dragon Men never heard of him again. The group assumed a new leader named Shin Shu and decided to keep the legacy of Yakone alive. They are out to kill the Avatar! With the help of an enemy, they will do whatever it takes to end Korra. Korra and her friends will have to go to places they've never seen, encounter people they've never met, and do the whatever it takes before the impossible.......
BTW BOOK 2 WILL PROBABLY RELEASE IN APRIL 2013 IF THE VOICEACTORS HAS'NT TROLLED US.
The Legend of Korra was definitely one of my favorite shows this year. It was far to short and I have to wait way to long to see season 2. I really enjoyed the back story and how they tied it all together. The show flows into the new generation perfectly. A must watch for Avatar fans. Keep up the great work. Mako would be so very proud and honoured by the creators rememberance of him.
Legend of Korra gets a 10/10 from me not because I think it's perfect, but for one simple reason: despite it's flaws, it has a permanent and lasting appeal. On first viewing, Legend of Korra season one drew my interest in, and then captivated me. On second watch, the attention to detail stood out and I found myself amazed at the production quality, particularly the standout music soundtrack. On third and fourth times through, I realized that Korra belongs in any permanent collection and as a 25 year old male who doesn't generally watch cartoons, that's saying something. Legend of Korra is quite simply entertainment done right, for the fans, and for that it garners a 10/10 from me.
I was missing Avatar: The Last Airbender ever since the last epsiode. Reruns just don't have the life that new episodes have. When I heard about this show I was ecstatic. Then when I actually watched it I was not disappointed. Korra is definately no Aang but I love the character. I wished there had been more time for character development but the season was so short. It had it's own air of mystery and I loved watching it. I can't wait for the next season, I only wish I knew when that would be.
12 episodes and this cartoon make me one of the happy's fans of the planet. Korra is an amazing character. Tenzi, Mako, Boli, the pretty Asami, Beifong, Naga, Republic City *-* just perfect, funny and great entertainement.
Okay so honestly, i was a big fan of ATLA but i still love this series. I waited fo what seemed for ever for a spinoff (i was about 11) when i first saw ATLA. But i waited so long and now the spinoff is here am i complaining about the show no i am a hardcore fan of this series too i really like it its got a new-day kinda feel to it without abandoning its roots. In my honest opinion they should make more than 2 seasons i would honestly tune in every Saturday just to watch them like i do now. The one thing this series has that is has always had is AMAZING story boarding i mean there are just so many twists and turns especially with Amon and Tarlok i loved that bit of story. I seriously thought Korra lost her bending and Mako didn't i was like WTF but it was fine at the end. All in all wonderful series please make more than 2 seasons Please everyone loves this series :)
I was always worried that this show was going to have a cheesy story line or that everything was moving too fast. Now I realize that the creators of The Legend of Korra pieced it all together and it's amazing. I'm still so annoyed because my older brother is always spoiling the most important parts while I'm watching.
The show has such brilliant writing and despite the fact that the first book is only 12 episodes long, the creators are doing such a great job making the characters realistic, and the action in this show matches so beautifully with the music. The story line is definitely more mature than the last airbender, but the protagonist is a strong individual that it just makes the show that much more admirable.
I love the new Legend of Korra, where it combined the blend of new and old. I also like Korra where she reminds me as Katara, independent but tough as nails and hotheaded. Hope you guys also liked it as well.
The Legend Of Korra bring a western style animation. It is fast forwarded to a time with electronics and such. As I saw the first episode i was in love at how much an attention grabber this show is to me. Although it is nothing compared to the original Avatar The Last Airbender, The Legend Of Korra brings new excitement that keeps me coming back and craving for more.
A smooth blend of a fresh new show combined with a nostalgic continuity. There are just enough ties to Avatar:the Last Airbender to keep the shows from feeling like two completely seperate entities. Airbender took us on a fantastic and dynamic journey whereas it seems Korra will be rooted in Capital city. Korra herself is a perfect foil to Aang. He was very intellectual, evasive, and silly; She is older, more serious, rash and aggressive. They both loved fun but have different ideas about what is fun. Pro-bending is the perfect instrument for training both the characters and the audience in the ways in which bending works these days. I look forward to every episode and don't anticipate being disappointed.
Ok guys, the show is only in 6 episodes so idk how you can judge the plot now. There is still much to be determined. I freaking love the direction and can't see why people are not digging everything! I mean the characters have ACTUAL flaws (that's what makes the show that much more realistic and engaging! Look at Winston in George Orwell's 1984. He was ridiculously flawed and not exactly likable but he was the main protagonist). It's amazing. Korra's not Aang and I LOVE that. She's hot headed, a teenager (what the hell do you expect her to be?) and acts the part. I do agree that they are moving a bit fast but you guys have to take into consideration that they aren't sure if they are continuing it if ratings aren't the best so they kinda have to get all of the preliminary stuff out the way. there were morals and small themes that were taught by the original series but this one brings in more modern and honestly more pertinent themes like class struggle and revolution. I mean this whole idea of a "proletariat" (non-bender) uprising is just genius. Seriously, this freaking reflects a lot of the political movements occurring in Europe and Asia during the time period that this is set in [(1920s-30s, Within this time, Europe saw the rise of many Communist/Socialist states and also the establishment of multiple Totalitarian dictatorships (with Mussolini and Hitler's being the most prominent)]. Amon being the main instigator, cheated by society. (both parents are dead, face forever scarred by a fire bender, Hitler, both parents dead by age 19, personal being permanently scarred from being rejected from art school twice) Appealing to the neglected people, lower middle class and causing them to rally behind him (similar to Hitler's tactics on his way to becoming Chancellor) The "Equalists"? c'mon it's too obvious. This show's structure is intelligent. I mean take a hormonal teenage girl, MOVE her to the big city, have her have to worry about her emotions, her own personal activities and mastering air bending and having to quell a revolution? Placing all these stresses on one character... it's just freaking awesome! Seriously man this show is too dope. I really think you guys set your expectations too high and then now let those unnecessarily high standards dictate your judgement. I applaud this series.
Okay, where do I even begin to start for this review. Well, this is a very well done animated series and I am extremely impressed by it. It is definitely way above average. If you loved the original series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" then you are most likely going to enjoy the spin-off series "The Legend of Korra". I've gotta be honest about something, I didn't know what to think of this show when I first saw the promo. The promo gave mixed feelings and I was a little worried to give this show a try because I was afraid the spin-off would be screwed up and wouldn't be as good as the first. My mom, my brother, and I would watch the original series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" together and we have been blown away by that original series and absolutely loved it. My mom and I don't really watch television together a whole lot and she doesn't watch Nickelodeon like me but she would watch "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "The Penguins of Madagascar" with me at least sometimes so yeah. I told my mom about how there's a spin-off series to the original series and she was very excited about it... like I said, I didn't know what to expect. My mom and I have been watching "The Legend of Korra" together while my brother just watches "The Legend of Korra" on his own because he has his own time kinda like a schedule. I watched the 1-hour series premiere of "The Legend of Korra" and I immediately fell in love with it and it's much better than I expected. With Nickelodeon not doing so well, he have this awesome show to back it up. Oh yeah, "SpongeBob SquarePants" also since I love that cartoon so much. What made me really enjoy this show though was how modern the writers made it. I really loved the animation here. I don't know if it's just me but does the animation here seem just a little different from the original series? either way, it's still awesome plus this show is still made by the creators of the original series. I love how the storylines go in each of the episodes, it just flows very smoothly. The characters here are very enjoyable and likeable... kinda annoying at times but they are fun characters and they each have a unique personality that we can appreciate. I really think the way the storyboard artists draw Republic City is so beautiful. So how is the action here, oh my gosh... the action in this show is so awesome. It's intense, epic, and heart-pumping fun when it comes to the action. It's like I don't know what the writers think when they make the episodes but if I ever saw them, I would tell them straight up "You are the most creative people for an animated series ever". That's really saying a lot haha. The story to this show is that Korra is the avatar who has already mastered Earthbending, Waterbending, and Firebending but yet has NOT mastered airbending but she moves to Republic City so her airbending master Tenzin can train her. Along the way, she runs into the Fire Ferrets (I believe that's the name) who are a team for the tournaments and these two guys named Mako and Bolin. That's all you need to know about the story of the series from there. I also think it's awesome that Katara from "Avatar: The Last Airbender" appeared in the pilot episode of this show except she is now an elderly woman and happens to be Korra's grandmother and waterbending master. Katara and Aang are also Tenzin's parents. I hope Aang does visit Korra as a spirit though... that would be so cool to watch. Also, I hope they show Katara (now an elderly woman) again in the series so she can reveal on what happened to Zuko's mother... I'm still curious on what happened since it was NOT revealed in the series finale of "Avatar: The Last Airbender". To finish off my review, "The Legend of Korra" is a top-notch animated spin-off series with splendid storylines, unique characters, well done executions, beautiful animation, intense action scenes, and an amazing continuation to the original animated series. Overall, you need to watch "The Legend of Korra" because it is worth your time and you won't be disappointed... of course, if you hated the original series then you're not gonna like this spin-off series unless you give it a chance and see for yourself. 10/10
I'm surprised with the 7.8 rating...yeah the last air bender sure started out better than this one through the first 4 episodes...but its still been very solid and I think it has potential to be better than the original
i love this show. i was at the edge of my seat with the first avatar with ang and the gang but now i cant get my eyes off the tv this show is amazing nice job with the sequel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
