  • 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?

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This season with Zahir as the main antagonist is the best season of Korra. The antagonist has a goal that is believable and that many people would empathize with, much like season 1. Watching the air nation get rebuilt as well was exciting and interesting because of the state of the air nomads before harmonic convergence. It is heartwarming to see Tenzin finally able to realize this dream. Watching the plan of the Red Lotus unfold is insanely fascinating because of the mystery and history surrounding them and Korra.

    This season is LoK at it's peak.

I've always love Avatar since The Legend of Aang, and I thought Season 1 and 2 of Legend of Korra were awesome, loved them both. However. Season 3 was something else. Season 3 was like I was watching a completely different show all together.

    The fighting and fight scenes in this Season were some of the best animation, epicness and emotion, bordering on the line of Eren vs the Female Titan in Attack on Titan.. and that's saying something.

    No longer is this a kid's show, without spoiling it, were Legend of Aang, even people look like they should have died, they crawl out of their tanks to put kids minds at ease. No longer is that the case, there is death in this Season, first season in Avatar History were it's obvious when people die, and it's even later confirmed.

    The Emotion, Voice Acting, Locations, Story and Aftermath of Harmonic Convergence are astonishing, the Music is easily the best in the series, easily the most powerful villains in Avatar History, new forms of bending, mature storyline (So mature it was removed off air) and all in all, one of the greatest shows I've seen in a loooong time (If you're a stoner, watch every episode baked, especially the last 3, my god..). Anyway, watch the god damn show!

Also, the socio-political implications of past events in The Last Airbender, the comics and Book 1 & 2 of Korra are handled in this season and the next one. The first two seasons might seem a bit meh to some but trust me, it is worth it to get here and to Book 4. Expand

However, while the Air Nation is slowly being rebuild, Zaheer and his fellow Red Lotus accomplices escape their respective prisons and set out to bring all the nations down and succumb the world into anarchy. Their belief that disorder is the natural order poses a lethal threat to Korra and she must fight to save not only the balance of the nations in the world, but also herself and the Avatar Cycle.

    I hate doing this.
    I've given two decent scores for Korra before now, because I wanted to see the good that could come from this story. I've tried to explain that it's not the original Avatar.
    But you know what, I'm done with that.
    I'm done giving this show a chance, ignoring the bad parts for the good.
    Because this show is desperately trying to be the original Avatar. And it's failing. Badly.
    I've not seen the full series yet, but up to now, everything seems very rushed, new bad guys, contrived new groups. hinting at backstory that goes nowhere.
    This season is a mess.
    If it doesn't come back after the rushed formula, I won't be upset by it, I'll just sell my Korra dvd's and ignore the continuity, after all The Rift is still being done and up to now the series is still good.
