The End of Korra

Real life has really gotten in the way of watching and reviewing anime for me but I just had to take the time to wrap up The Legend of Korra now that the first season is officially over. And in the end, it was okay. Only okay.

The show doesn’t really do anything wrong (except for the romance, but let’s face it, The Last Airbender didn’t do that well either) but it failed to do anything great (story wise, that is; the action and animation were exceptional), which is a real let down because The Last Airbender was all sorts of awesome, and paved an easy road for Korra to launch off of.

The Legend of Korra: Episode Eight

Legend of Korra gets more political in Episode Eight touching on some issues surrounding justice, but before that, let’s do a quick recap of Episode Seven since I skipped it: Hiroshi Sato aka Asami’s dad is an Equalist supporter, supplying the radicals with electric gloves à la Stark Industries. As a result of his arrest, Asami, Mako, Bolin, and Pabu move out of the Sato Mansion and onto Air Temple Island with Korra and Tenzin’s family.

The Legend of Korra: Episode Five

An entire episode dedicated to the romances percolating amidst the greater storyline? Cue eye roll and exasperated sigh. However, by focusing on the one thing I really didn’t like about The Legend of Korra, the show has hopefully done the one thing I was really hoping for: getting the romance out of the way. Now that Korra’s confessed her feelings, kissed Mako, broken Bolin’s heart, and made friends with Asami, we can move on.

Oh and don’t worry: They’re all still friends.

The Legend of Korra: Episode Four

Forget Korra versus Amon! It’s Korra versus Asami!

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: I am not a fan of Avatar romance. It’s not bad but it’s not great, and it always seems out of place. But let’s say with the introduction of Asami Sato – the daughter of wealthy tycoon Hiroshi Sato, creator of the Satomobile – I stop judging Avatar romance and just be nice while it plays out. I mean, it’s clearly not going away…

The Legend of Korra: Episode Three

For some reason, so far, when I watch The Legend of Korra, I don’t get very excited. I get excited before I watch it, in anticipation of it, but during the episodes… Meh.

Okay maybe “meh” is an unfair reaction – it’s not that bad, but when I re-watch some of the episodes from The Last Airbender, I get pretty happy. Admittedly, a lot of that comes from watching Toph Earthbend. So far I haven’t seen any bending action that compares to what Toph does in The Last Airbender, but I know there’s still lots of room for things to get better. And that’s one of the things The Legend of Korra’s got going for it: potential.

Avatar: The Legend of Korra

Wait: How did I not hear about this!?

I know Avatar: the Last Airbender isn’t technically anime because it’s not Japanese, and I remember getting really confused when I first watched the original series because I wondered how this particular “anime” had such good English dubbing, only to learn later that it was an American produced series (by Nickelodeon). The Legend of Korra follows the original series, beginning approximately 70 years after the end of The Last Airbender, and focuses on Korra, the new Avatar.
