Throughout all the craziness that goes on this season, Tenzin remains the voice of reason, as he takes a calm, mannered approach to it all. Roaring engines, smashing machinery, and exploding flames all fill the room with the immersive sound. We see humans crafting technology that can combat the powers of the benders, and, as things progress, the technology gets pushed even farther, into pseudo-steampunk territory. Certainly the weakest season of the series, but still a delight. So while The Legend of Korra isn't as strong as The Last Airbender, give it some time. Also please look at the pictures.

It's hilarious and not raunchy funny like most cartoons or any movie really nowadays. The original series laid all the groundwork, very carefully establishing the culture, history, and magic system of this fantasy world. No, the new Avatar's crew isn't as unforgettable as the dream team -- Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph and Zuko -- and no, the villains, supporting heroes and secondary characters aren't quite as memorable. Then you can count the days. It doesn't get more basic than that, or more advanced for that matter. Korra dresses in her Eskimo-style water tribe clothes, and she gets around riding on the back of her polar bear dog, Naga. On a related note, Amazon's exclusive Dragon Ball Z: Seasons 1-9 Blu-ray box set recently made a comeback after being sold out for ages.
With so many different characters running around with so many different skills, the action never feels repetitive, and you look forward to the next slugfest, just to see all the crazy ways everyone will use their powers, abilities, or tech next. The painterly backgrounds showcase their every last nuance. Korra really grows in Book Two, and I was absolutely fascinated by the world-building and back story. Much the same can be said for Korra. Every time I was disappointed with Book One: Air, it was only because I was comparing it, its characters, and its scope and scale to those of the original. And I gotta tell you, I was hooked right from the begining.
In motion, I had a tougher time spotting the problems. But as an adult I really appreciated the mature change in Legend of Korra. Overall I still liked it, but I doubt anything will capture the imagination like the original ever again. There is so much here that it will literally take you hours to get through. She enters the pro-bending league, and befriends the brothers Bolin and Mako, as well as Asami Sato, heiress to Future Industries, a leading engineering corporation.

The animators' line art is clean and refined with no significant ringing to report. Feisty seventeen-year-old girl Korra Janet Varney has been raised knowing full well who and what she is: the Avatar, the one person among the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation and the small remnant of Air Nomads capable of controlling all four elements. Korra discovers, though, Amon is hiding a lot more than just his face. Im not very good at describing things, so read some of the other reviews to get a better idea of what youre getting. Amon, who keeps his face hidden behind a mask, is leader of an anti-bending movement, claiming to speak for ordinary humans.

Amon is leader of the equalists, and he says he speaks for the ordinary humans, demanding they be treated with as much respect as those with magic powers. Big action, vast world-building, genuine characterization, and big big ideas are all explored in The Legend of Korra. This is a shorter, twelve-episode season, and is mainly a standalone tale, but it manages to incorporate all the things we enjoyed from the previous show while still staking out its own identity. Korra focuses on her air bending training while also fighting off the dangers of the city.
All told, I came away without any serious complaint, minus a small gripe that some scenes were a bit too front-heavy all of which I ultimately shrugged off. It's a shame that this was the last of the Avatar series there will ever be. Mako and Bolin also provide the romantic aspects of the tale. And it's a good thing too. With a battle for the fate of the world between the light and dark spirits Raava and Vaatu fast approaching, Korra delves deeper into the Avatar's past and realizes what she must do in order to restore balance between the physical and spirit worlds.
Varney is present in almost every commentary save a handful , but each participant makes the most of their time. I surprisingly enjoyed it much more than the last airbender. Lucky for you, you can obsess over it beginning on December 2nd.

A lot of screentime gets devoted to pro-bending, a sort of supernatural combination of dodgeball and Powerball from American Gladiators. Final Thoughts This Blu-ray set is absolutely worth buying, as long as you have not already bought the single season releases.
Korra is as accessible to Avatar newcomers as it is invigorating for longtime devotees; no small feat considering how dense the two series' shared mythology is and how fundamentally different the two series are. It doesn't help that the series establishes a fascinating villain in Amon only to summarily dismiss him by Book One's end. In Book Two: Spirits, Korra and Team Avatar embark on a new journey deep into the mythology of the mystical Spirit World to defeat a dark spirit once and for all. Leading a growing army of Equalists, Amon has sworn to rid the world of bending by any and all means necessary. Korra is still an addicting tale, but too many aspects are shortchanged: Korra barely ventures into the spirit world, spends next to zero time communicating with past Avatars, and doesn't seem in any great hurry to connect with Aang's spirit, much as his past plays a role in her present.
