As I'm sure most Avatar fans (not those blue aliens, THE Avatar that airbends) probably know, a mini series will air on Nick sometime during the middle of next year called Legend of Korra (full name The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra). The series takes place 70 years after the end of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Korra is a 16-17ish year old girl from the Southern Water Tribe and the new Avatar (so yes, it means Aang is dead). Korra has mastered water, earth, and fire, but will go to the United Republic (a city founded by Aang and Zuko for people of all nations to live together) to seek out an airbender to teach her (if you want to know who, check out the link at the bottom).

Like how Ozai was the bad guy in A:TLA, Korra and her gang is up against The Equalists, a group of people skilled in chibending who live in the United Republic that are against benders and bending. They use their chi-blocking techniques (just like how Ty-Lee was able to do) to temporarily prevent benders to bend while in fights.

The trailer:

A very nice collection of info about the series so far (spoilers galore) is here.

I loved the original, but was too young to really pay that much attention to it. I need to go back and watch it sometime.

First episode has been "leaked"!

Just the first one though. When it's premiered, it will be the first two episodes back-to-back.

Now, I'm not saying you should watch it, nor am I saying how to watch it, but the very end of this sentence might contain more info. Also, that sentence is full of spoilers.

Yeah, all the ones being put up on YouTube have just a couple-hour lifespan now, if that. There are still several torrents/downloads online of it though.

Also, I was going through all the folders on my computer to try and tidy up, and I found this:

That was awesome!!!


Korra reminds me of a combination of Katara and Toph I think. I love her already.

Toph was one of the most hilarious characters on that show. I love how she constantly flaunted the fact that she was blind just to piss people off.

Toph was the best character on the show merely based on the fact that she was no the token goofball, boring female sidekick, invincible moron MC, vengeful rival or a bat**** insane woman.

I nearly have the first two episodes completely memorized.
I can't even begin to count how many times I've watched it. I kinda wish Korra wasn't just going to be a miniseries, but I guess I should count it lucky we even got the show in the first place.


Don't know if you guys have read The Promise yet, but you should. First part is already out, second is coming out in May (first 6 pages), and the third and final will probably be out in September. It's pretty much what "Book 4" would be, and is what happens after the end of A:TLA and before Korra. Warning: Aang and Katara are super lovey-dovey.
