Wouldn't you guys like the story to end on a high note than be dragged down into mediocrity?

The first season established Korra has a very weak connection to the Spirit World, which is supposed to be part of the second season.

Then all they have to do is make something powerful enough that even a fully realized Avatar would struggle against it. It's not that difficult to conceive of.

I'm guessing something out of the Spirit World. There's tons of stuff in there that's far more dangerous than any Fire Lord or Blood Bender.

To be honest, I would've been happy if they just had only the first series and never touched it again unless they decided to make it come out on Blu-ray. But I think the new one is a pretty good addition. But my favorite character of every single character out of both shows is Iroh. I would definitely drink some tea with him. :lol:

You know why Korra happened? It's to make sure our last memory of the series wasn't the movie.

Ooh, sorry, the correct answer was Toph.

Toph was a good character especially when she figured out how to metal bend. But even being from the fowl Fire Nation, Iroh became peaceful even if it was due to his son dying. Without being the Avatar, he still managed to somehow visit the spirit world and relearned fire bending from the dragons who also taught Zuko and Aang. Not to mention, he was a high ranked member of the Order of The White Lotus.

And I agree that they needed people to forget the live action movie ever happened. But I have another solution, getting rid of all traces of it or going back in time and shooting Shyamalon after he made Signs.

Speaking of Toph, I just read The Promise. She was pretty awesome in it, but only because Iroh was a side character through the whole thing. He's literally in like, 3 panels.

It was pretty good though, decent continuation of the series, though the details about Zuko's mother were left ambiguous. Everything else was just about striking a balance between peace, equal rights, comedy, and fan service. Lots of fan service.

Oh, and Aang's promise to kill Zuko if he turns into his father, theres also that.

Someone put a lot of effort into Toph's face in that. There isn't a single shot of her where she doesn't have some amazing expression on.

Okay, The Legend of Korra, not needed but good. And personally, I think Naruto is good. So there's that.

What else do you like/don't like?

And I've never read any of the Avatar comics because I don't really care for them.

100% American made. Not Anime in the slightest.



I think Anime has more to do with the art style and other factors than the place where its was made.

To understand Yugioh,you need to see that playning Duel Monters is like a sport in that world,one that anyone,from kids to adults,can play.Once you get past that,you can enjoy this great series.Gets even cooler when you understand and play the card game.

So, Im watching the Wolverine anime.

I just finished the first episode and I liked it. My only real problem is where does this take place in the -If any- timeline?

I need to know before continuing, is this an origin story in another country? Or do I need some prior knowledge before continuing to watch?

Also, both this anime and the upcoming Wolverine movie take source material from the same place, just a fun fact.


The Wolverine Anime takes place in its own timeline.You can watch it just fine.But if helps,I think all of Marvel's Anime take in place in the same timline.
One example it that Wolverine appears in one of the episodes of the Iron Man anime,with the same character model,theme song and voice actor from his series.In X-men anime,i am not sure,but i think his voive actor is the same from his series also.And Iron Man makes a cameo towards the end of the X-men anime.
I the Iron Man is inspired by the movies,not necessarily being in the same timeline.

I'm all for another season, I just dont see were it could go. Besides getting into ancient history and spiritworld stuff, which is always fun, there isnt much for Korra to learn. Maybe she can refine each skill individually? Travel the world, learn from the masters?

Or the series could introduce a new type of forbidden bending, who knows?

A radical fire nation group rises up to repeat ancient history and reclaim it's people's spot as rulers of the world?

A million and one possibilities. I'm not against it. I just dont see anything being a threat to Korra if she already knows everything.


I also though unusal that Korra started the series alreay bending 3 elements,then i thought:If the series was about learning each of the elements,that would made too similar to the Legend of Aang.

Let me put it like this: I don't want to understand Yu-Gi-Oh. The Abridged series is as far as I'm going.

Speaking of, a friend of mine is a total d-bad and tricked me into getting addicted to DBZ Abridged. So I watched all of that.

Here you go. Enjoy.

For the record, they had the Saiyan Saga cut down to eleven episodes, and the Namek Saga cut down to about nineteen. They did the Garlic Jr. Saga in one episode. And none of the episodes surpass 20 minutes. More amazingly, they manage to compress everything down without losing anything particularly important. Also it's hilarious.

That series needed it. Badly.

I remember going on holiday for two weeks in the summer, getting baack home, and there was maybe one advancement in the plot. And Goku still had to land wherever it was that he had to land.

Abridged is a fan made version of a show, mostly anime, that includes cussing and other stuff. For example, DBS abridged or evabridged.

What the f*** is abridged?


Abridged is a fan made version of a show, mostly anime, that includes cussing and other stuff. For example, DBS abridged or evabridged.


He means, what, in a series that thins its plot out like DBZ, could have been cut down.

I remember going on holiday for two weeks in the summer, getting baack home, and there was maybe one advancement in the plot. And Goku still had to land wherever it was that he had to land.


Kai seems to be doing a decent job of it. I haven't been watching it, but they managed to get through the Saiyan, Namek, and Cell sagas in 98 episodes, about half the episode number of the original.
