|Not this one.|
When I hear that the creators were making a new show, a sequel, I nearly had a heart attack of fangirl joy. I was so excited and when Korra finally started, I was glued to my seat. It is brilliant. Honestly.
The thing that I hear the most on websites is that people don't think that Korra is as good as the Last Airbender. What I think is that they are trying to draw too many parallels with the original series. But you have to look at the show as its own separate entity. The characters are all older than the characters in the original show, the issues are different, and since the show is going to be shorter than The Last Airbender, so the plot has to be more condensed than in the original series.
Another thing that annoys the pants off of me is the SHIPPERS. OH MY GOD, DO NOT LOOK UP LEGEND OF KORRA ON TUMBLR IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR INNOCENCE. I have and it was not a good decision. The shippers are INSANE. I didn't even know that people could be that crazy. And I know crazy. But these people will ship (if you don't know what shipping is, consider yourself lucky. Basically, they go crazy pairing characters that they want to be in relationships.) anything. These people ship Mako and Bolin, who are brothers. Something is wrong up in the head, if you know what I mean. I mean, I understand shipping, it's fun having head cannons, but at the same time people need to take a step back and just let the creators of the show take the show where they want to take it. It's their show. They can do whatever they want.
But I love Legend of Korra because of how the show has matured. They aged the characters so that the kids who watched the first show would still be interested in it because the characters were still around their age, which I think is so cool. Plus, the characters have all of the lovable qualities that made the first show endearing.
And Meelo. He is my favorite. I want them to do an episode dedicated to this child, but since they need to pack in the plot, I doubt it's going to happen. In fact, I just want more screen time for all of the air bender kids. Just watch this and tell me that they are not amazing.
Impossible, right? That is why I love this show. I highly recommend both it and the original Avatar: The Last Airbender. They are both awesome shows and even if you aren't a kid you can totally appreciate them.
Oh, and total like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon moment. Ready? I'm about to blow your mind.
Zack Tyler Eisen, the kid who voices Aang in the original series? Yeah, he's my cousin.
Love and kisses,
