So new legend of korra started last week or so, I missed the first 2 episodes but caught the new 2 tonight. Started strong, kicked hard the whole time. This new season looks to be pretty interesting,so I won't spoil anything thus far.
The fact that
Toph had two kids by two different men is umm.... a pretty sexy thought...especially for a "kids show". She definitely doesn't seem like the type to settle down, and the creators really ran with it. I also thought she was dead what with the lack of mention and 'flashbacks'; but wow, now she's just travellin' the world. We got Zuko alive and well, I wonder if Toph will show up or save the day at some point this season
I wasn't crazy for the Earth Queen's plot (she's awful and the show likes constantly pointing out that she's awful); but everything else around it was better (I loved Bumi mentioning that it is totally in her right to conscript her citizens --- take that kid's show logics of "freedom"!). Metal city looks super cool/pretty.
Great season so far, I definitely like seeing more of the modern Avatar world (which makes season 1's Republic City ONLY idea kinda depressing all over again), and I'm digging the new villains so far, if for no other reason than the fight scenes have been simply great to watch. I also like that Asami is much closer to Korra.
= Jinora's unexplained spirit thing is back without any context.
= Everyone be fallin' in love again. Except Korra and Mako... GOOD.
= This sounds odd, but man I love how this show draws Asians better than most anime (which can just get a bit too crazy with its tiny button noses, tall eyes, and wtf hair...oh and Korra actually being pretty muscular for a leading lady).
= I also love how this show draws "bending". The fact its based on real martial arts makes scenes where they show it off a bit of an animated treathttp://imgur.com/user/SpiteTheBullet/favorites/JrFDK
= Last weeks episode; Zuko had me laugh: "I once sent a guy like that to assassinate the Avatar.... [pause]
. It didn't work". Such a complicated history this man has!
