Thanks for posting this, awesome stuff
Mhmmm, thank you for posting. I'm going to order the Avatar: The Last Airbender series off of Netflix and re-watch it before Korra comes out if I can manage. I'm looking forward to this mini series and hope that it has just as much substance as its predecessor.
I was ecstatic when I first caught wind of the new Avatar spin-off sometime last July. Hell, I ended up rewatching the whole The Last Airbender series because of such wicked news. And while Nickelodeon pushed back its release date to next summer (here’s hoping), an extra fourteen episodes is well worth the wait. Even if each episode is twenty-two minutes in length, that’s what? -- nine and a half hours of element-bending action, comedy, and solid drama.
The fact that Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are writing all of the episodes is icing on the cake. No silly, out-of-character episodes like what happened in Avatar Day. Someone deserves to be slapped over the head with the damned storyboard for that one.
I also love that the main character is female. Yay! A fierce female who suddenly won’t forget how to handle herself or the situation whenever a guy enters a scene (like so many other dramatic action series). Please don’t disappoint me Korra. <3
Amon and the Equalist organization I’m already fond of, despite general lack of information concerning them. First impression wise, I can understand why some characters would loath the existence of bending, and thus wanting to end its practice. Undoubtedly there could be other motivations revealed later on, but I’m thankful for villains that I can, so far, empathize with and stand behind their methods of rationality.
Hmm, Mako is some nice eye-candy too. Hur Hur. >:3
The Track Team is returning, describing the new music as "the roaring '20s with an Asian twist". I’m flabbergasted by that statement, yet I really want to listen to it.

I think it's was really awesome of the creators to name one of main characters Mako in honor of the Va that played Iroh who passed a way after season 2. Cant wait to see Korra go avatar state wander if she will have any contact with Ang's spirit.
They're going to great lengths to improve the choreography of the fights even more for this series it seems. As the main enemy seems to be non benders who obviously have to fight with their fists, they've taken a lot of MMA and other techniques. It'll be pretty interesting to watch, I expect the fights to be exciting. Not to mention there's only 20 or so episodes so the pacing of every episode should be good. Lots of action in each.
O_O Please tell me they're going to redo Aang's and Katara's grownup form. XD Sorry, but they look so unnatural.
Hmm...Korra seems BA and it looks good, but I'm uneasy about sequels....:/ I'm afraid it'll take away from the original series, plus I'm not that eager to see the grown-up forms of Aang and co. ; Well, at least they solved the problem of the Last Airbender...although Korra isn't the last Airbender anymore....
Has anyone heard anything recently about The Legend of Korra?
I don't follow any forums over it or anything, so this is the only place I would really go to get information. I didn't see any new trailers or anything like that, but if someone finds one, please post it!
Okay, while it officially starts on April 14th, two episodes have already leaked. Thus I decided to give a thread a pump.
First episode was strong, I really enjoyed it. The old Avatar feel is there, but still also feels new and fresh. I sure miss the old cast, but the new characters seem interesting. I especially like Aangs son Tenzin. Beginning of the first episode was impressive and fun.
Imho second episode showcased Kataras negative character traits bit too much. Also new characters who I asume to be the rest of the main group did not yet win me over. Also the possible romance picture felt bit over glued. Still non the less entertaining ep. Not bad.
Katara is nice foil to Aang. Even after being rather annoying ADHD teen in ep 2, the end smoothed things a little and I do think she'll be a great lead character.
Just watched the first two episodes and it's really good. Much potential in this one.
Damn, I was wondering how Amon would compete with the likes of Ozai and Azula as a main villain, and I have to say his ability dispel any doubts. I can't wait to learn more about whatever spirits gave him his power and are against the Avatar's existences. And Korra teaming up with Mako was awesome.
Last episode was amazing...very interested in the background of this villain...and funny how both Mako and Amon share similarities in their past(family killed by a firebender)...
It's an amazing series until now...I love every character and the vibe of the villain is really cool...
Not only Amon, but I were iffy about non-bending Equalists as baddies in the first place. But this episode dispeled all my fears. This works great, and Amon is intriguing. I guess one reasons for that is, that I can understand their feelings to certain extent.
The action scenes looked very good on this episode.
