re: Avatar: The Legend of Korra: Book II Season Long Thread


Just watched it. Really good opening and I like the direction the season is heading in.

First of all I love the design of the Spirits. It seems as if they were lifted straight out of Miyazaki's imagination. Really looking forward to what other spirits they'll bring us this season.

I feel pretty confident that Korra's uncle is behind all of this. Just seems a bit too coincidental that the spirits just happen to come invade the South and kick the Avatar's, Korra's father, and Tenzin's ass, just for him to put on a show where he defeats the spirit effortlessly. Think he's going to be a well intentioned extremist type antagonist, and Korra opening that portal I think is only going to lead to bad things, since I think Aang would have opened it in his time if it was as Korra's uncle was saying. I think he's being manipulated by a much more powerful spirit and they're just letting him think he has control over them, when he really doesn't. Really curious how the Water Tribe Civil War goes down, since I doubt the South is just going to sit there and take it.

Really liked that new Howard Hughes type guy that Bolin and Asami interact with, as well as the girl twin who is obsessing over Bolin. Really looking forward where they take Jinora this season since they seem to be setting her up for a bigger arc this season.

I'd start off with Season one of Avatar: the Last Airbender, and then go from there. It helps you understand the universe and characters more, but I wouldn't say it's entirely essential. It's a new story they're telling, so it's possible you could keep up.

Like OML said, you should start with the original series first.

I've yet to watch the new show yet, but it's on my list.

I also have strong suspicions about the uncle. He's definitely making a power play, just as he did with the Northern Water Tribe.

Yeah, something tells me that Korra's father wasn't responsible for the spirit attack at all and his brother merely used his brother's raid to his advantage and summoned some spirits. I'm thinking he did something similar what Ozai did with Iroh and then asked his father to revoke his brother's birthright. Unlike Ozai's father, he agreed to it, so he overthrew his brother in the process.

Yeah, thinking the same. Be interesting to see how things go down, can;t see Korra really sitting around watching the southern tribe getting basically taken over.

I feel sure that he will succeed in it, and Korra and company will flee once they realize what her uncle plans to do. Think she'll rejoin Tenzin and hopefully profusely apologize to Tenzin, who Korra was being an absolute bitch to in the last episode to where I felt really bad for him. After her parents, it's clear that he's the person who most cares for her and has her best interests at heart.

I think his goal in the South is merely to secure more numbers to his army as he invades the United Republic and the Earth Kingdom. Think he'll have all the forces of the Water Tribes and the spirits he thinks he controls. His goal is to spread his religious ideology over the world at any cost, and the Earth Kingdom and United Republic don't have really any religion to speak of from what has been presented.

After watching the first season and the beginning of this one I just really dont like Korra. She is a selfish cunt. It's completely different than Aang who was very wise ans responsible, even though he was much younger than what Korra is.

Saying that, I still like the new Avatar it's just completely different than how Aang was and how one would assume the avatar should be. I'm sure that's probably the point to make them complete opposites but still. She is a total bitch. It's kind of annoying.

She's been cuntish this season for sure, but I didn't really ever think of her as that in the first season. She definitely owes Tenzin an apology, since she doesn't even show him the respect for the sacrifices he's made for her and doesn't give a frick about hurting him. I'm sure Korra at the end of the last episode is beginning to realize that she fricked up by not following Tenzin's advice and that her uncle was merely using her like Tarlok attempted to.

The show is making it a point though. It shows that Korra has progressed little emotionally since last season and didn't learn jack shite from facing Amon. I think she'll learn her lesson and change at the end, just as Aang grew up and stopped running from his destiny.

Honestly, Korra's powers probably should have been taken from her for a few years until she mastered airbending and her spirituality, and then she could have had it back. I do fault the show for giving her her powers back much too soon so she could actually learn from them. Definitely thought they would end the season last year with Korra only retaining her airbending, and then have this season focus on getting her powers back to face an even bigger threat.

Wow, I would have really like that. However, I like that this is teaching her a lesson that even though she has begun to master all of the elements and can use the Avatar state, that doesn't make her a fully realized Avatar.

It's incredible to me that Aang and Korra are almost complete opposites. Each one already has what the other lacked. Both are immature during their journey.

I'm super excited for this season. I love the setup for the water tribe civil war. Plus I love that there will be subplots involving Tenzin and his family. It seems like they're setting up Jinora for something special. I have a feeling that she'll play a part in helping Korra to progress spiritually.

re: Avatar: The Legend of Korra: Book II Season Long Thread


So just watched the last episode ( Here's a link to it if you haven't seen it), and I thought it was better than the first two. It's about time Korra starts catching up to how her uncle is evil. Not even that subtle about it, since he's sitting on an ice throne in a dark ominous room all alone. Definitely starting to get a Palpatine vibe from him as a villain, and he's point blank stated that he's wanting to "unite" the world. He's definitely pulling what Sozin attempted to do to Roku in having the Avatar on his side.

Really liked the subplot with Tenzin and his siblings. Doesn't really shock me all that much how they had a kinda fricked-up childhood and that Aang was much more distant with his other 2 children than he was with Tenzin. I'm curious what happened to Ikki though. Something tells me she's been abducted into the Spirit World and that opening that portal merely released a ton of spirits that are now causing worldwide chaos.

And I'm really liking the creepy twins and especially Verin. That guy is fricking hilarious and absolutely steels every scene he's in.

Also the Southern Water Tribe must have really gotten down and dirty the moment the War ended. Seriously, there were only like 60 of them at the end of the last series, and now it looks like the South has tens of thousands of people living down there. One hell of a baby boom right there.

The last we saw her wasn't she in the statue room by the statue with the circles around it like those being used by Korra's uncle to tame the bad spirits. Could be a connection.
