  • Summary: Avatar Roku, an Avatar incarnation, died in a volcano incident and soon after the Fire Nation invaded the world. The Fire Lord at that time, Sozin, wiped out all of the Air Temples knowing that the next Avatar would be an airbender. 100 years had past, and the Fire Nation was winning the war. The new Avatar, Aang, was discovered in suspended animation in an iceberg by two Water Tribe siblings, Katara and Sokka. It was Aang's destiny to stop Firelord Ozai, a decedent of Sozin, from using a comet's power to end the war once and for all. To halt the advances between the Fire Nation versus the rest of the remaining nations, Aang had some help from friends in his quest to master the elements that were left: water, earth, and fire. One was Katara, a waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe was his waterbending teacher, while Sokka was her older brother. Toph was a blind earthbender who taught Aang her martial art, and Zuko, Firelord Ozai's son, originally hunted down Aang to restore his lost honor with his father, but later helped Aang bend fire.
    70 years have past, and Aang, the previous Avatar incarnation who was the last airbender has passed on. A waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe is the now the new Avatar. Her name is Korra, a girl who is rebellious, alone, and ready to take on whatever issues or battles she must face. It is Korra's destiny to protect the world as it was for her predecessors. She has three elements mastered: water, earth, and fire. The trouble is, she needs to master air while there are very few airbenders left. Tenzin, Aang and Katara's son, is the only person who can teach Korra how to airbend and it is her mission to find him or risk losing the new world's industrial melting pot, Republic City, to crime and anti-bender revolts.
    Can Korra live up to her past life and keep the world in balance?

    I really like The Legend of Korra, obviously it isn't better than The Legend of Aang, because Avatar: Aang is probably the best cartoon i've ever seen, and Korra it's only a sequence. If you like Aang, you will like Korra Expand

    An amazing, satisfying season that was character focused and emotionally satisfying. Beginnings was some of the best world building I have ever seen. An excellent season of tv. Expand

    Honestly, I know some fans are apathetic towards this season but I honestly really loved it. We really get some in depth detail on the Spirit World and universe as a whole, and we got some really good development for some of the characters. No it isn't as great as the original series, but still a solid season overall. Plus, Beginnings was just a killer episode!! Expand

    An entertaining season. Not as good as book 1, but still a decent follow up. Korra remains one of the strongest animated television shows airing right now. Expand

    Okay, season two is done and-again, this isn't Avatar.
    I know that people can't really separate the original series from this one, but people
    should. This isn't about Aang's world, this is the one that he built and again, I like it.
    The problem at the moment with this style of storytelling is the disjointed style of writing, when they get it wrong-dear god do they get it wrong, but when they get it right, it's amazing!
    There were parts in this season that I loved, call backs to the original series, expansions of the universe and brilliant backstory built into it.
    Season 3 is going to be a very interesting thing to watch, I only hope that they finally give up on the useless 'Korra needs a Man' plotline and focus on seeing more of the world.

    This season basically has two really good episodes (the Wan episodes), and then a bunch of average episodes, and then a few totally cringe inducing moments spread all throughout the series. A lot of the actual dialog that the characters say is just really stupid, and not fitting with what the character is supposed to be like in terms of their supposed emotional intelligence, background, etc. Korra has a lot of good setting full of dumb characters.

    The season ending was a cool series of fights I guess, but pretty predictable in terms of how it unfolded, and in retrospect I think I expected more than just a fight where Korra punches a thing super hard with spirit-hulk powers and then the bad stuff goes away.

    This is some sub-shonen level stuff right here. Relationships are rage inducing, scripting is a total clusterfuk and ending is an insult to human intelligence. First season was somewhat ok but the second season is unforgivable. If i had not watched the first series (Aang) i would totally discard the whole idea of bending since there is not even enough attention to its differences (styles, strong/weak points, general lore etc.)

    This is clearly made for sub teenage level kids.
