So, yeah. First off, I have to admit, while admiring the show for what it did, I never really got into the first Avatar series. I dunno, it just didn't push my 'Squee!' buttons, so it's kinda in 'Dark Knight' territory: I know it's good, I admire what it's done for a medium I love, but I'm not a fan.

However, that's about to change:
Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.


This one DOES hit a lot of my 'Squee!' buttons.
First off, Korra herself:
OMG! She has MUSCLE! And here I taught 'Buxom' and 'Cutesy' would be the standard forms for animated females. It's good to see they're breaking that mold and made her pretty in a non-conventional way.
The setting: Now I know some people claim this was 'Too modern'.
Not really. Have you ever studied the cultural shift in, say, Japan? Things actually changed this fast at certain periods in Real Life. With the help of supernatural forces like bending and the Steampunk science already shown in the previous series? I can totally see this happening.
That BEAR. I want it.

i have to agree, i just wonder if this is after aang and katara or before because the girl looks alot like katara... and it seems the brother's personality might be in it aswell.

This takes place seventy years after the first series. Korra is the new Avatar after Aang died. There's some next gen. (Aang and Katara have a kid named Tenzin and Toph's Daughter is in it as well) but handled pretty well (Tenzin's actually quite old and already has three kids with a fourth on the way and Toph's daughter is the leader of a police group specialised in Metalbending)

Avatars always skip a generation, unless they happen to die early.

mmmm this is going to be GOOD.

No they're not. Once the Avatar dies, BAM, new Avatar's born. The reason Aang's was all messed up was because of the iceberg thing.

what she meant P. was that under a normal situation most people live to see their grand children. thus skip a generation. but the series does indeed look good. do you know when it will be coming out?

When is this starting? My avatar fix needs to be filled, I can only keep watching the three season of the last airbender for a certain amount of time before getting tired of them. Anyways this looks exciting!

I don't think there's a date yet, I hope Nickelodeon will air the series soon though, the trailer was amazing. x3

I was a bit skeptical about the show at first but I just watched it on korranation.com and it was freaking amazing! I love it so much. I can't wait for more episodes.

I watched it finally and thought it was pretty cool. I liked how they made it a bit more modern like in the early to mid 20th century and the connections with all of the characters from the last airbender. I still think I will like the original series the best, but it will be cool to keep up with this one.
