Give 8 out of 10. I like the cast and story was good. It really only problem was they rush the story and did not give enough time for some character development. Opinion on Mako/Asami/Korra triangle, is that I’m sad for Asami but I think she will find someone better and on Mako, is yes he some what a jerk but I think he this more of idiot who made bad decision in begin when Korra final confess to him. Really if he was confuse he should not been dating either girl. On Korra, maybe Mako not best guy out there for you, but he did really show he care for you in end so good luck. Then Bolin, he my favorite character and I do like parring of Korra and him. Note anyone who think Asami a bitch is idiot. Man I’m so happy writers did not go that route.
I love everyone and like how Tarrlok redeem himself in end and really this sad that those boys had psychopath for father. I think they may turn out for the better if he died early in their childhood before they became water benders. I think Amon was very officiant bad guy, I mean very little shake this guy. I say he more interest then fire lord in first series. Man way he this took over city and his people, it was scary. Actual do have one big problem this series, is I feel bender were in general were weak in this one. I mean fight scene were good. But it really bother me how easy most of bender were took down. I mean it was harder then hell for Anng and gang to fight any group benders and they had run away most of the time from other benders. I guess you argue that power was in who lead them and how officiant as group they are. Or that bender in old series came form people who in time of war and that bender of this series were in time of peace. But still I think you could made Amon and his group very scary officiant but still made majority of benders harder to take down. Especially let say master like Tenzin and Lin harder to fight against.
Now Korra herself. I like Len, Tenzin, and Bolin more. But her design was perfect for her role. I love how arrogant she is and how she away rushing into things. Made big mistake and often need help and did not get things right a way. If we did character study on her, I think they say she perfect for main character. Man a tough female character that is tough not because she trying prove she better then men but because that who she is. It a refreshing thing to see. I could go on forever how good, original, and real she is to me. Have ever seen character take on love as she did. I love way she this confess her feeling and kiss him. She can be one mature person by not going all bitch on Asami. The writer had her down to tee. Oh, I can complete believe she is Aang reincarnation. The animator and writer put in subtle but you can see that she does act and talk like Aang at time. She not my most favorite character and still I like Aang more. But in some way I see me actual meet her in real life more then likelihood of meeting someone like Aang.
Compare to First series with Aang, I’m afraid they can’t beat original, especial in term of humor. But the story and cast in this series are really good and I love how Aang and other look as adult in this series. They were this damn epic. It interesting how they made main plot fit in to one book, unlike what did with Aang. So I’m curious to what will happen in next three book. It nice now they be doing 3 more season.
When I heard about this series was coming out. I was very happy and at same very disappointed that we not going get more of Anng and the gang. I serious rather see more Aang and Sokka years in age between 15 - 25. But Korra was fun series to watch and I be watch it again soon and new stuff to come.
Now for shipping. I like these paring, canon or not. Favorite*: Asami/Korra*, Korra/Mako, Iroh/Korra, Asami, Iroh, and Mako fighting for Kora, Korra/Bolin, Mako/Bolin*,(Have for thing brother yaoi, don’t ask why. I don’t know.) Bolin/Iroh*, Mako/Iroh, Asami/Iroh, Mako and Iroh fighting for Bolin. Other characters so far fine with canon.
I LOVE THE BUMI! And I can’t wait For MORE OF HIM!
