*Remembers what it was like to date Korra*
Good luck, you'll need it.
Congrats? Oh what's that? you're a contrarian who picks the opposite of popular opinion so people can give you the attention your parents never did? well then why don't you just say so?
This face, the face from Season 4, and the "Mako Burned His Pizza" faces are some of my favorite reaction images from this show.
Although Asami and Tenzin get some good ones, too.
The worst part of the ending is that Asami deserves better that Korra. Korra is the worst part of her own show, and now I can't even call her a cunt without it being a federal hate crime.
once you declare a winner in a love triangle you can't change it, then change the change, then change the change to the change. But at least it worked out for the best in the end. Asami is a much better fit then Mako.
> being this mad
> being this misogynist
> no good options
> being this autismal
dude I've been depressed all day since I watched it, i feel like there's just a massive void in my life
So then your poll is completely irrelevant?
> being this obsessed with "truth"
For the next week or so, get angry about bisexuals.
Then let that cool off and discuss how it could have fixed, which will inevitably lead to someone insisting on removing bisexuals and derailing the topic from whatever legitimate arguments might have been going on previously.
Then, reluctantly, fapping to bisexuals and admitting it really wasn't worth getting that worked up over.
This dude was such a bad boyfriend his ex switched teams and NTR'd him with HIS OTHER EX when he was still holding onto some hope.
Don't ever mess with Asami Sato is one of the morals I took away from this story.
Not really if anything Korra and asami are the cuck's since he cheated on both of them with the other one. He's just a bad boyfriend who didn't expect that love triangles could leave the guy stranded.
Comics are very likely.
Because she's a reasonable person and was trying to establish that she wasn't annoyed out of spite at Korra or anything.
Nah, Korra took on the burden of suffering by the end of S3. The only suffering Asami had in S3-S4 was losing her dad, and that was mostly offset by making up with him in the first place.
They had no idea what to do with her for S2, but they figured out in S3 what they should've in S2, namely that Asami's place was to be Korra's friend and moral support.
She was her fear of failing and being a letdown of an avatar. They really should have had a really quick scene of her fading or something after the bit with Zaheer or something and Korra having a sigh of relief or something.
What happens when Nick eventually decide to continue the franchise without Bryke's involvement?
>have male lead as the Avatar cos people hate girls
>execs agree that's obviously the reason Korra wasn't as popular as TLA
>Korra and Mako's son
What do I believe then?
Why would Nick decide to continue the franchise without them? The core audience wouldn't watch it, and lord knows Korra wasn't a resounding success for the network when aired traditionally, so who exactly would be their planned target audience?
Even if they somehow did go full retard enough to greenlight a sequel, do you really think Nick a decade or so down the road would want to be known as a "homophobic" network?
The best scene of the finale was when Tenzin, Pema, and Lin went off and had that threesome.
Or maybe I'm just imagining that part because it's slightly more believable than what actually happened.
There would be no reason for Nick not to greenlight comics, since the ATLA ones have seemingly been very successful. While Korra missed Nick's target audience, the series hit a bulls-eye with the kind of people who read comics. I'd be shocked if Dark Horse didn't approach Nick about acquiring the comic rights, especially since they need more big new properties to replace Star Wars.
>Or maybe I'm just imagining that part because it's slightly more believable than what actually happened.
What exactly are you bitching about, anon? I sure hope it's not the relationship that has been subtly hinted at for over a season.
Michael has already re-shared several articles talking about how great it was that Korra and Asami are totally gay, so yeah, they definitely seem intent on setting the record straight later on.
Not that guy but I do think it was a bit weak.
Being able to go toe to toe with the Avatar attempting to blow up republic city and the avatar in a last ditch effort, only to fail and end up in a solo confrontation with the avatar again only to just give up.
Korra should've killed Kuvira. That would've made things a little more believable.
Also it really felt like someone watched too much Attack on Titan before writing that season finale.
No. Ambiguous shit like that generate more media buzz and longevity.
And since Korra for a good majority was a piece of crap outside of say part of season 1, majority of s3, and small portion of s4, it's mostly going to be remembered as the one cartoon that might have had a lesbian ending
Let go your earthly tether. Enter the void. Empty, and become wind.
>mfw after I watched the finale of Korra, I could fucking fly
>What exactly are you bitching about, anon? I sure hope it's not the relationship that has been subtly hinted at for over a season.
No, I'm suggesting it was overall another lackluster finale from a series that seemed to make a habit of lackluster finales.
they will literally set the record straight
they did this shit on purpose and they know that even if they say "she's not gay" people will still carry on like she is because >muh headcannons
>Zaheer gets his foot frozen
>He starts to fall
>This season he's bound by 2 giant chains and has his arms chains
>Just floating around like a boss
Really need some friggen consistency.
>tfw Korra was a good show and the Korrasami ending is all it will be remembered for
>tfw you actually like Korrasami but think both the people that hate it and the people saying it was the best thing ever are crazy
>tfw this is all every thread will be about until 6 months from now, when discussion will be dead
>tfw there is literally no good place to talk about LoK at all
I dunno whether to dislike or like the fact that every season ended with some sort of death
>S1: the infamous double suicide
>S2: good riddance Unalaaq
>S3: Pi Li explosive decapitation (?), Ghazan suicide, Ming Hua electrocution
>S4: Hiroshi getting smashed
It really feels like they were just trying to make up a lot of times for bad writing mid season with a shocking ending
>Korra should've killed Kuvira. That would've made things a little more believable.
Are you serious? Korra's entire story arc has been the character learning the need to employ words and emotion over her fists. Ending with a straight-up beatdown of Kuvira would have been so much weaker than Korra finally successfully becoming the Avatar she's striven to be for four seasons: an individual who is just as capable of fulfilling the Avatar's role of mediator as enforcer. Season 1 Korra probably would have let Kuvira died. Season 4 Korra was willing to put her life on the line to talk down someone who'd repeatedly tried to kill her.
Kuvira giving up made perfect sense to me. She saw herself as doing what was right for her people even as she slipped further and further into extremism, and she was surrounded by yes-men without anyone to engage her in a rational challenge to her ideals. Once she started razing an innocent city and attempting to kill her fiancee, it became much more difficult for her to convince herself that she was still a hero.
In the end, Kuvira was exactly what /co/ wanted: a villain with some actual depth and redeeming qualities, who was able to recognize that she'd gone too far and become the very thing she wanted to prevent.
>they will literally set the record straight
Go read the tumblr story about the importance of Korra and Asami being gay to one family that Michael called heartwarming or some shit, and seriously re-evaluate your position.
Why are we all indulging in faggotry /co/
Why can't we be amicable adults and discuss Avatar logically like adults?
You could view each of them in context instead of arbitrarily grouping them like that.
I liked the S1 and S3 examples. S2 I didn't give a shit about because fuck you Unalaaq. S4 was just "well of course".
You'll have to give it a couple months until all the buzz about the lesbian ending goes away.
That might have seriously ruined/made Korra entirely, who knows. Let's see what people talk about in the future going forward if Korra is brought up again
Honestly Korra sparing Kuvira felt a lot more meaningful and well written than Aang sparing Ozai.
It means a lot more to spare a life when you're not a pacifist, and have actually killed before. (Korra straight up murdered Unalaq's soul, remember)
We can do this, Anon. We just had a really awesome Korra thread awhile ago in the midst of all this by just not responding to shitposters (at least at first). Be the change you want to see in the board.
What would you like to talk about, Anon? I promise to respect your opinion and engage you in an even handed, reasoned way.
Korra was designed to be Aang's antithesis. Aang needed to fight and, if necessary, kill (thanks Lion Turtle, Nick) and Korra needed to learn to not tackle problems like The Hulk.
He doesn't want to admit that Bryke could actually have anything resembling a character arc in their show.
Right there with you, Anon.
>tfw it's Nick's new cash-in spinoff Avatar: Go!
Lin had to blow off some steam after dealing with her shitty family for so long.
Yeah the music and the scene with him and Bolin really made me think that was it for Mako, part of me thinks it would of been more memorable and dramatic if it was but another part thinks there really would not of been the time to do anything with it, and you have to have time to do something with it if you kill off one of the main characters.
S2 really drags the others down, but I'd consider S1 solid and S3-S4 very good. I don't even mind the romance bullshit in S1, but the unfortunately rushed ending hurt the season. The show has all-around great characters, great action, and fun humor throughout most of its run. I really can't call TLOK anything less than at least good.
Asami puking the slop into the bowl remains my favorite TLOK reaction face.
Would people agree that Korra's biggest problems were that it was originally only supposed to be 12 episodes and then following seasons were only 13-14 eps long?
If Bryke had known from the start how much time they had could it have been better?
Yeah but Korra has Airbender to fall back on and season 3 which I have said before is good but cannot carry the rest of the seasons into good tier. It basically has good heritage to fall back on.
>ATLA book 1 and the first half of book 2 are the worst part of the series
>halfway through it turns awesome
>LOK book 1 and book 2 are the worst part of the series
>halfway through it turns awesome
It's like there's a pattern here or something.
I personally thought they played it almost perfectly. I think one last, impotent punch from Kuvira in the Spirit World before breaking down would've been better, bet eh.
After the robot blew up, seeing Kuvira get up, injured, and run into the Spirit Wilds was amazing for me. I love when villains are totally defeated and run away in vain. And having her use the laser in a last ditch attempt to just up and kill korra, and end up causing destruction she couldn't stop, it was just great. I rolled my eyes a bit when the beam was about to pass over her, but Korra saving her saved the moment from being trite.
I feel like they handled Kuvira extremely well in the finale, save for the whole exchange with Su. It was hitting all the right spots for me, but like I said before, I think resorting to fists would've been nice.
Kuvira new she'd been beat. She knew she'd gone too far. She wanted the Empire to be strong, not to be strong, but to not be weak. It makes sense. Especially when we saw the flashback with Su. She wanted Su to do it. It wasn't opportunism on her part, but desperation.
Kuvira was a great villain, and was handled well in the end, though it was bumpy at some points. I think that one missing episode (that turned into the clip show) could've done a lot to help flesh out Kuvira (as well as Korrasami).
I'd agree with that yeah.
I still don't think it should have had 24-26 episodes like ATLA, since it was always meant to have tighter pacing. But 16-18 episodes would have been great. And it's clear they kinda had to reset things at the end of Book 1 when they got more seasons.
That was season 1's problem
Season 2 was the problem of having so many great ideas, but implementing them so piss poorly
Season 3 was mainly just ending the season without it feeling rushed, which was a recurring problem from previous seasons.
Season 4 they kinda took a step back in terms of writing, so a lot of shit felt really fucking slow at times.
Imagine anon. A planned series. Four books, two based on zaheer, then two on kuvira. First half of book one could have conflict that leads to new airbenders, or alternatively zaheer and co are active while zaheer still doesnt have bending, showdown in b1 finale = new airbenders. Then time skip, then kuvira and remnants of red lotus b3 and b4.
ATLA is not nearly as good as /co/ remembers it as, honestly.
I don't know anything about either of those shows but
>You can make a good story with limited time.
This is true. But BRYKE clearly struggled with it, and that's what we're talking about.
Makorra was 2 seasons long
Korrasami was at best 1/4 of a season long (hints don't qualify as plotline)
How is it that Korrasami has more basis than Makorra?
Nick still can kill or make their career, they are literally one of the giants in the animation industry.
And their say can influence the higherups in other companies from hiring bryke in the future
>You'll have to give it a couple months until all the buzz about the lesbian ending goes away.
I just heard about this and as an anime fan I find it hilarious that this sort of thing causes controversy in American animation.
Season one was admittedly a bit of a cunt (but only in relation to korra, who was also a cunt). Season two he was fine, seasons 3 and 4 he got sidelined hard but when he was let out he was based as fuck. He really did grow into a fucking bro by the finale.
It still irritates me that every season except for 3rd ends with Korra nearly fucking nuking an entire population/world before she finally decides to stop being a retard and permanently changes the world to fix it
Yeah, the lack of knowledge that the show would continue really hurt. S1's ending was way too compressed, and S2 was basically Bryke flailing around trying to figure out what to do as a followup.
The self-contained villain seasons actually worked out pretty well for the show overall, much to my surprise. The Red Lotus and Kuvira were both established, developed as interesting and compelling villains, and defeated in a single short season, while Team Avatar's character arcs carried over in between seasons (much like, say, Buffy.) The end to Amon's character arc was fumbled a little before that beautiful murder-suicide, but that's Bryke's fault for not having him defeated by Korra in a more believable manner rather than any fault of the available time.
Bryke as a creative team definitely benefit from the ability to see what's working for fans and correct based on that.
>(hints don't qualify as plotline)
Yes, they do. Korra and Asami had started dancing around each other, metaphorically speaking, by the end of S3. Now that we know the intent was for those hints to be romantic all along, it's really easy to look back and see the beginnings of romantic interest that finally sparked into a real relationship with the series finale.
Bryke just did us all a favor and kept the romance in the background.
I felt the same way after I watched
the season 3 finale of pone. I took it like a punch to the gut and then I realized I was way to invested in a shitty television show for my own good.
>I just heard about this and as an anime fan I find it hilarious that this sort of thing causes controversy in American animation.
LoK was already hugely controversial in the fanbase. This is just something for the people latch on to, one way or the other.
I hope they let Platinum make at least one more game. They loved the setting and I could easily see an epilogue game that's a co-op Beat Em Up where you play as Korra with her bending and/or Asami with gadgets, equalist gear and hand-to-hand
so can someone summarize season 4 for me? I haven't had the chance to watch it but from what i've heard its not as good as season 3 and I don't wanna watch another season as bad as season 2
>Korra and Asami dancing around each other
Dude, it seemed more platonic than romantic
You have never had 2 sisters before have you
Best case they are treating each other more like sisters
the weakest villain korra's ever fought manages to get away with shit because she runs a hitler like campaign across the earth nation and korra is still too mind broken from her battle with zaheer to do shit.
Also Toph shows up, confirms what we already know that Korra's a shitty avatar, Asami's dad dies, zhu li talks, zhu li and varrick get married, lesbian korrasami ending
makorra was the endgame of season 1 (before the finale it was Masami with hints of Makorra), and their relationship was a downward spiral which lasted either half of or all of season 2 depending on whether you count the time after memory loss.
in this case, I would say that a bad relationship was worse for establishing series endgame than the hints given for eventual korrasami
of course, I wanted korrasami since their first interaction in season 1, so I'm biased
It's not as good as season 3 but it's still really good.
Thing is it's largely an introspective thing centered around Korra, especially for the first half. So if you hate Korra as a character you're gonna hate this season. Plus it was unusually structured for an Avatar season.
rondo duo by tinkerbell. futa on girl visual novel, there's no scenes with that chick
>Season 1 actually had a reasonable and plausible villian
>The rest of the season was shit, and they rushed the ending because they had to have love triangle drama bullshit instead of actual cool shit
>Season 2 had a fucking incredibly idea of a Dark Avatar, which could've been expanded upon greatly throughout season 3 and 4 and potentially a new god damn series but it was never explored further because good always wins :^)
>Zaheers deathbender squad was amazing, and probably the best season
>Kuvira was just shoe horned in for another season easily.
Would've been amazing in a new series for a reincarnation of a new avatar and dark avatar and the dynamic of one being evil and one being good and not being sure which was which would have made for an amazing series imo.
Not that anon but I have two sister and I've never held there hands while gazing lovingly into their eyes from 1 foot away.
>people are still saying they're just really good friends.
I'd rather keep the 4 villains, 4 seasons. That actually worked out quite well, and indeed ATLA did something similar with Zuko as S1's main villain, Azula as S2's, and Ozai as S3's. Just have more of Korra's self-esteem issues and the fallout from the Equalists carry over into S2, and make Unalaq/Vaatu less cartoonishly evil. Have Unalaq be out to destroy/co-opt Vaatu for the good of the world or something, and genuinely intent on helping Korra at first, and then it all backfires and he ends up going full Dark Avatar.
Also have Korra and Asami actually become friends in S2, because it was just plain idiotic that they weren't, especially since Korra's daddy issues were a big theme and Asami understood that better than just about anyone.
With a powervaccuum left over from the red lotus killing the Earth Queen, a rogue military force from a neutral city-state is assisting in bringing the chatoic Earth Kingdom back to stability. The leader of this military force, after spending three years stabilizing the country, decides she's not going to relinquish control to a naive new ruler and declares the country is her's to rule.
She takes her rogue military force back to her home city-state and attacks it, taking the city's leaders and it's people. She then forces a brilliant engineer to create a super weapon to take the last piece of neutral land left in the country under her heel.
This fails when the Avatar and company topple her greatest weapon and the Avatar is willing to save the leader of the rogue military force and convinces her to give up on her rampage.
The Avatar then leaves to go to the spirit world with her friend for a vacation.
I don't get the Korra hate. I mean, I totally would if we were still on like episode 2 or 3 or whateveer of season 2. It was unbelivable how awful Korra was at the start of season 2.
She got a lot better though after that mess.
Denial ain't just a river son.
I agree, it felt like a proper thematic conclusion to Korra as a character and to the themes of the show, Aang's COULD of felt like that but it's ruined by the fact that it's acomplished only because an exterior force literally hands him the way to do it.
The one episode in this show where I was genuinely happy to be watching it was that first episode where we got to see Tenzin having an adventure with his siblings. For just that one episode, I felt like I was watching a show about Aang, Katara, and Sokka as adults.
Then it hit me that they could have just made a show about the Gaang as adults, and then depression.
>>Kuvira was just shoe horned in for another season easily.
They knew exactly what they were going to do in Book 4 when they were writing Book 3 and you can tell by just how often Kuvira shows up in the background.
It's especially funny after watching Cross Ange which has regular 3-4 way lesbian orgies and the main character picking up one of her squadmates by the vag and boobs to throw her.
I still ship BoLin.
Bolin's face is my opinion, Lin's face is literally everyone else.
>hat actually worked out quite well, and indeed ATLA did something similar with Zuko as S1's main villain,
Zhao was S1's main villain.
Zuko was always a second protagonist.
It became cool to hate on Korra thanks to her pig-headedness at the end of S1 and for most of S2. Some people still just haven't been able to accept that S3 turned Korra into a pretty level-headed and good person.
Do explain what you think Bryke intend to suggest by sharing various stories and articles talking about how great it is that Korra has a canon gay couple, then.
Asami helping Korra with physical tasks, holding her hand, and letting her know that she would be there for her is the first really intimate moment between the two characters, and more that could easily be read as romantic proceed from there.
>I do not understand why she said this when she was fighting with her boyfriend.
>This was one fucking random line.
She was actually jealous that Mako was moving in on Korra, but she hadn't figured that out yet.
It's a lot easier to build audience goodwill in the first place than to gain it back after losing it. One someone starts to hate Korra they're INVESTED in that hate and will do anything to justify it. The same is true for a character they love.
>more so that Kuvira turned good after one conversation
Kuvira didn't turn good. She just surrendered because she no longer believed in her victory or, arguably, her fight period.
Yeah honestly if not for Book 2 Id say LoK would basically be equal to ATLA, one solid season and 2 very good ones, unfortunately it also has that extra bad season hanging around.
The problem with having a different villian each season is that it turns into fucking Bleach or generic shounen.
>Another villian just so happens to show up
Should've had max 2-3 villains with at least 2 getting 2 seasons each.
>Bumi in particular
>tfw you're really excited Bumi is gonna be in the show in S2
>mfw the minute he started talking
It was over before it even began.
Little did Bolin know, when you get together with one of the Beifongs, you get together with ALL the Beifongs
I didn't say the episode or the characters were good. The three of them together were obnoxious caricatures of the original gaang. But even so, just having a nod to the original show like that, no matter how poorly executed, made me think back to how much I loved the original show and that is the reason it made me happy. The whole of LoK is shit and I don't ever want to watch it again, but that episode at least reminded me that Avatar used to be good.
>implying they aren't all just good friends
I wish they just did an Avatar series that was largely episodic in nature or had 2-3 episode several mini-arcs over the course of one season.
Yeah but cross ange stated up front or at least heavily implied up front that all the characters might be lesbians or definately were. Therefore no one would really care. Korra on the other hand was shown in season one to be fairly boy crazy, she basically attacked Mako as soon as she saw him, they then most of season two dating only to break it off near the end. Asami as well in season one was presented as heterosexual pursuing a relationship with Mako as well. She also tried to restart it in season 2 when Mako breaks up with Korra. Season 3 had little to no romantic leanings (and was the strongest by far) Then suddenly she and Asami become gay in the last season out of left field for no reason. Its just stupid doesnt make sense and seems like pandering, especially for a show which is expected to have decent writing. Cross Ange on the other hand is not expected to be anything other than fapbait.
I think I have to agree. Or maybe Hiroshi's death. Sure we all saw it coming. Someone had to die a heroic death, and he was the only expendable character in the cast.
Also just any Varrick scene. But that may just be me. I love it how everyone just forgot he was a criminal just like Hiroshi. Or maybe even worse. Hiroshi was motivated by what he thought would be better for Republic City. Varrick was just motivated by business interests.
Varrick really was the one bright spot in the first half of season 2.
A military man with a wild side, not a retard who got his position in the military probably because of his dad.
>ATLA was mostly episodic
Exactly, they kind of got locked in the format LoK was since the first season was just intended to be a mini-series and they ended up following that same formula for the rest of it.
But they also clearly planned the Lion Turtle ahead, even though it was a terrible, poorly executed cop out. The fact that it was sitting there for three seasons as part of the actual plan makes it that much worse.
>P'Li is a fucking amazon
And a goddamn cutie.
>you will never be her little spoon
There's nothing wrong with LoK being a different format. I like that they were different. But I like serialized stuff better than episodic stuff myself, anyway. It's a matter of taste.
If they fucked at the wedding, Lin probably just looked at it as a one time thing because she was drunk and lonely, watching her stupid ex with his stupid wife and her stupid sister with her stupid fuckboy husband. Mako thinks there's more to it and he tries to make a real relationship out of it.
And hijinks ensue.
>you will never be her little spoon
Don't remind me.
For you, anon
In the very first episode, Ange gets stripped naked, chained to a table and apparently fisted by her hot commanding officer, who has a metal arm. It wrecks the arm
The biggest problem about Korrasami is there were plenty of moments to develop it that Bryke just ignored.
I mean, why is Asami nearly completely absent from the finale? Why doesn't she talk with Korra before the final battle? Why isn't Korra worried about her safety right as her dad saves her from being crushed?
There were so many times they could have implied more but they only have these barely anything more than platonic overtones that somehow are supposed to explain the whole thing and not make it seem like a rushed last minute decision.
It just doesn't work, especially when they really did care about Mako. It's a forced coincidence. There should have been another female character that had nothing to do with him.
Basically this whole post explains why it's poorly developed.
For the record, I would have preferred Korra to not be in a relationship at the end.
>Would've been amazing in a new series for a reincarnation of a new avatar and dark avatar and the dynamic of one being evil and one being good and not being sure which was which would have made for an amazing series imo
I like the idea that since Raava absorbed Vaatu, over time, each successive avatar becomes more and more influenced by Vaatu.
Damn nigga, take someone out to dinner before you fuck them.
That Wuko is so canon.
respectfully disagree, but understand where you're coming from because the only thing between them that couldn't be interpreted as nonromantic was the blush (only other time I remember Korra blushing was way back when she had a crush on Mako and couldn't talk about it, and again when she kissed him)
>>tfw it's Nick's new cash-in spinoff Avatar: Go!
People here are already adoring TTG and shitting on TT. Imagine the kind of shitstorm if that happens: the combination of that with already existing LoK hate would be catastrophic.
>So is shipping.
I'm the one you're responding to but...yeah, touche.
I'll leave this here....
The only acceptable ships are crackships... for umm, entertainment purposes.
It could have benefited from more time, yes.
But Asami cared about Korra way more than you're giving her credit for this season. I mean in that one flashback she was wanting to abandon everything and go with Korra to the South Pole for her recovery. And she was pretty pissed off Korra left her.
>I feel like /co/ has good taste in anime
I got charts for yah son.
Confirmed for didn't read. They never had to be explicit about it, there were plenty of ways they could have just interacted more.
Someone needs to count how much screentime Asami had in the series compared to everyone else because I'm pretty sure Lin is even more important than her.
>They never had to be explicit about it,
They never were very explicit. It's a hugely understated relationship that's just begun at the finale. Which I think is part of what people are having trouble wrapping their heads around. Traditionally, a relationship CULMINATES in the finale, it doesn't begin.
There's no reason for that. It's just the tradition.
Does /a/ have really good taste in western comics and cartoons?
Season 1 is pretty good, Season 2 goes full retard out of the gate and puts the pedal to the floor.
CA actually has a decent plot underneath all the fanservice. It's made by the same studio as Code Geass
The holy grail desu~
You're supposed to watch everything on it Anon. Then go on /a/ and realize you still haven't seen enough, so you just pretend you've seen more and watch the flavor of the season to fit in.
They're only crackships until they're canon, bro.
>mfw I'm shorter than everyone on team avatar, even the girls.
Life is suffering
Not my posts in that image.
I'm fine with Korrasami. I don't ship, and don't really care, but I don't have any issues with them being a couple. What I do have a problem with is the apparent switch that was pulled.
We see mostly a platonic, friendly comradery develop between two women who have had a lot of hardships in the last 3.5 years. They understand each other is going through some shit and they have some emotional baggage.
If Bryke wanted so baddly to make them a couple they could have done a just a bit more to actually make them seem caring. I think if we'd gotten all of 30 seconds worth of additional scenes though out the last 5 episodes, it would have really improved the ability to definitively say that Korrasami was a thing. As it stands it seems like two friends decided to say: "Fuck it, lets run off and ditch our responsibilities for a few months and oh yeah, lets start a relationship that is more than just a friendship."
I honestly think that if it had been handled better /co/ wouldn't have a problem with it at all.
Well yeah, you're used to mindless fanservice, all you are saying is that you have lower standards.
You do realize there are animes made as recently as the last 15 years where they talk about black people like they're monkeys right? Japan really isn't that progressive.
It was enough for me. I respect that you have different tastes though.
>. You need to go elsewhere for actual discussion.
Where? That's what every Korra discussion everywhere is like right now.
Not that there's ever been a good place to discuss LoK. Avatar has the worst fanbase.
Daily reminder that /co/ killed a guy over Korra.
Every time TTG is mentioned, the thread turns into a massive circlejerk. It can be samefag, but I don't think so considering how frequent and consistent it is.

I'm calling it.
>/co/ killed a guy over Korra
>it was over Korra Book 2, the worst season
>it was over an extremely low quality camera recoding of Korra Book 2
/co/ you are a monster
Here's the thing, in the eyes of a very strong vocal minority on /co/, Korra can NEVER do anything right, ever. I've seen people say season three was shit. I've even seen people say ATLA was better animated than Korra, which is as close to objectively wrong as you can get.
I would say the reason for most of that is time, they had a lot to do and show and not very much time to do it.
Why does everyone care so much about all this anyway, why should Bryke be any better at writing Lesbian romance then Hetero romance. Just assume everytime Korra and Asami talked to one another was their attempt at being subtle and move on.
Though I would say the ending does put that whole dinner awkwardness in "Reunion" into a whole other light.
I noticed this, I saw a lot of people just invested totally in hating Korra for a whole bunch of reasons. Like hating her on a personal level.
Like, they don' realize she isn't real. It's weird.
>Kill la Kill
There is still sanity in /co/ anon.
The point I'm trying to get across is that the people who actually have a problem with what was presented, and are not just being the typical flamebaiting retards, would probably be okay with Korrasami too if it was written better.
Bryke as all the subtlety of a bull in a china shop.
>I noticed this, I saw a lot of people just invested totally in hating Korra for a whole bunch of reasons. Like hating her on a personal level.
Someone post that image that involved hatefucking Korra. You know, the one with Master Shake.
If Korra were real, someone on /co/ would have found her, murdered her, and worn her skin while masturbating by now.
not saying this cause lolol racism, but its legitimately good and would satisfy your action needs. at least the manga, haven't watched the anime, seems full of censors
people also really like Parasyte but i can't say if its good or not
>and are not just being the typical flamebaiting retards, would probably be okay with Korrasami too if it was written better.
This is a very small minority.
But yes I'm willing to accept that there are reasonable people that just don't buy it because it's too understated.
>Bryke as all the subtlety of a bull in a china shop.
If anything, the complaint I'm getting from you is that it was TOO subtle in this instance though.
I watched the whole thing son, even the OVA. Shit was mediocre at best, favorite part for me was the OST. I expected more from Trigger, hopefully their future endeavors are better.
>If anything, the complaint I'm getting from you is that it was TOO subtle in this instance though.
Yeah, I'm fine with Korrasami because I don't really give a shit about ships. It would have been more believable (and I think others on /co/ would agree) if there had been any actual build up for it though. As it stands they went from just being each others emotional crutch to starting a relationship at the drop of a hat they're calling a vacation.
I have seen so many girls crying, like water falls over the Korrasami ending, but for some reason guys are the ones who almost always go, "Eh, maybe"
Well except this one 40-ish old woman who says Korra is the product of Frozen.
Careful watching it if you don't ship Korrasami, cause you will just to spite her.
>This is a very small minority.
Not that guy, but almost anyone will be fine with something if it's true well-written. The small minority would be the actual homophobes who can't handle that sort of thing.
>If anything, the complaint I'm getting from you is that it was TOO subtle in this instance though.
I think his point wasn't that any romantic development wasn't too subtle, but that it was non-existent.
It's like watching the show with someone else, except you don't actually have to talk to them.
There was actual build up. Saying there was no build up at all is willfull ignorance. I can understand you saying "there should have been more buildup". I can't understand THIS though.
>I have seen so many girls crying, like water falls over the Korrasami ending, but for some reason guys are the ones who almost always go, "Eh, maybe"
It's almost like something regarding emotions and gender..
More the complaint is he doesn't believe they can do subtle which to be fair all evidence points towards them not being able to do so.
All instances of developing relationships had obvious telgraphed signs
Y'know musical cues, visual cues, blatant exposition, etc. When a character liked someone they didn't pussyfoot around it, even when they were pussyfooting around it.
Not to say I agree, just there may be some juxtaposition from what their usual schtick is.
Asami's coming on kinda strong as of Book 4. I don't think Korra even considers it until the finale though.
I've argued this so many fucking times over the last couple of days though I really can't bother anymore.
/pol/ doesn't give a shit about cartoons, they know its been full leftist since the 90s ended.
Korra threads are MUCH better in the late night/early morning hours. Shitposting drops off sharply.
You don't see genitals or whatever happens to Ange's butt, but the rest is pretty graphic.
>girls ever being close friends and just that again
>in the age of LGBT rights and the belief that having a different character = a deeper character
>in the age of tumblr and /co/ creating a sizable fanbase for shows that care only about romantic relationships
>in the age where creators can directly interact with this audience and cater to them easily
>Korra threads are MUCH better in the late night/early morning hours
It seems to depend heavily on the OP too. I mean this one: >>68127434
Was great for the first 300 posts and the opening is just a giant essay call to reason.
>i was in that thread
most of those posts are from that thread anyway, a few are wildcards.
>Bryke can be subtle
pic related. it's Bryke
I maintain my theory that though he looks like he's just zooming around with no effort, flying actually requires the airbender to furiously twiddle their toes at all times. The ice interfered with that.
I'm not saying they aren't hugely unsubtle most of the time. In fact that's kind of my point.
I saw no evidence of any growth spurt.
Do you think Jet is alive, too?

This is better? Can't we just post Korrasami fan art and enjoy the adorable pairing? bad/rushed writing aside, this crackpairing from season 1 is actually canon. Makes me happy
Bryan talked about it during the NYCC panel. Korra's a couple inches taller than she was in book 3. You can see the comparison on the left.
Let's just discuss things normally and not respond to shit posters. There's plenty to talk about from this finale. Korrasami dominating it is sad no matter what side of the argument you're on.
Not everyone in the Avatar world has surnames. I'm pretty sure no one in the Water Tribe does.
I like how sisterhood's been so heavily criticized and questioned the past couple decades it's far easier to just write lesbians and keep the relationship as shallow as possible. When in doubt, fan service. People care so much about relationship status because ultimately they want a status quo, a certain mundaneness to these fictional characters. There's going to be a lot of boring Korrasami fan fiction because people fantasize about them just being an ordinary couple. Don't know if that says anything about our real lives and what the internet has done to us or not
Just think of the subtle eye-fucking that took place during all the times Bolin spent with Varrick.
They had an entire episode dedicated to a clip show that brought pacing to a halt due to a slashed budget. When they could have just done a a dialogue heavy, minimal animation episode entirely dedicated to character building.
>That breast reduction
It was great while it lasted.
First Mako cucked Asami with Korra, then he cucked Korra with Asami, then Korra and Asami both cucked Mako with each other.
Korra is beautiful no matter what.
I honestly didn't notice until it was pointed out to me.
>3 AM on east coast
It does seem to be getting better. Maybe we can have good discussion now.
What would you like to talk about?
Witcher threads on /v/ seem to have the exact same phenomenon. They're either absolute shit or impossible until late night/early morning US time
Use to be the same with Elder Scrolls threads when Oblivion dropped. Once Fall Out 3 dropped though, any TES game thread was shit for ever. /vg/ and have some good discussion in their waifu general, but nothing will match the /tg/ threads every couple months; there's like one /tgesg/ a week, but they're not always that great.
I want to like Legend of Korra. I kept watching for 4 seasons hoping it would get better. Season 3 was a particular bright spot. But the out of place conclusion was just the shit sundae at the end of a mediocre, if interesting, meal.
They are pretty cute together, no matter how you feel about the finale.
You shouldn't watch 4 seasons of a show you don't really like, Anon. There's no call for that. Why are you hurting yourself?
>But short hair is clearly best hair.
I respectfully disagree.
Yeah they actually fooled me into thinking he'd die for a second.
Honestly I don't care. I can't get into comics, and the ATLA ones just bored me. This level of writing can't survive without animation, soundtrack, and voice work.
makani pointed out that this is the last ever shot of Lin, which owns
>When Kuvira kept blasting the shit out of the airbending group and everyone was just OK i sorta just sat there a little flabbergasted
I expected nothing different.
The Avatar Franchise has never had the balls to kill a main character. They showed some balls with Korra, but not that level of balls.
god damn it Lin why can't you be happy for once
>This Kebab isn't even grilled properly.

>The waiter didn't even offer me any pita bread
>Am I just meant to eat it of the shank like some water tribe savage
>Where's Korra? I gotta pass this off.
Exactly, Korra is incredibly "safe"
They just made it edgy by marketing it as a kids show but really made it for adults. Then somehow doing a bunch of regular adult show shit on a kids show is somehow regarded as revolutionary.
A lesbian relationship? A strong female lead? ABSOLUTELY UNHEARD OF. Except its been done, to death.
>Okay yeah looking back Water does only have like 6 truly good episodes I guess.
Pretty much. But two of those are the finale so it's remembered as much better than it actually was.
I got through one and decided I couldn't see it anymore. I hate sharing opinions with some of these people.
That murder-suicide in book 1 surprised the hell out of me. I think you give them too little credit.
>Korra's hair is never shit you take that back
maybe it's because she was such a retard in books 1 and 2 to the point that i wasn't even attracted to her because it was like being attracted to someone who was mildly retarded and felt weird, but idk. her ponytail thing just doesn't do it for me, but she was qt as fuck with the hair down and all of book 4
>Then somehow doing a bunch of regular adult show shit on a kids show is somehow regarded as revolutionary.
It is revolutionary. Western animated action shows are kiddie as fuck and usually slapped straight down when they try this shit.
>oh my god my shipper heart
ok I lol'd. only because
I loved the korrasami ending.
>wanting to watch overemotional PMSing teenage girls overreact to their fanfiction ship being granted because the creators realized their series was so bad they might as well make the teenage fans who are teh only ones who even care about the series happy
How the fuck can anyone take out two helis with a single nade?
What has to happen in the writing room for the people to all agree that, YES, this should happen.
It's so weird to see these girls crying and flailing about because their ship was confirmed. I found the finale genuinely moving on its own merits and never participated in shipping. It's like these people are watching a completely different show or something.
Well what else would you call it?
I think Korra is actually the least interesting character in the series. Since the whole universe is centered on the Avatar being some retardedly strong bending god with a get out of jail free card (avatar-state) it makes all of the struggles and problems she faces virtually meaningless, since you know shes going to win.
S3 set a precedent with putting her in a chair. But guess what? S4 shes back and more powerful then ever about halfway through the season.
I don't really know how you could even watch this show if you didn't like Korra, given that LoK focuses on her in a way ATLA ever focuses on Aang.
I think Korra is a pretty great character though.
I hypothesize that Bryke was given an order for more seasons after the season 1 miniseries and said to themselves, "shit, what the hell are we going to do?" So they plotted out a general endgame. Since Asami got fucked over in the end of season 1 they had to do something with her. And what's more fun than slowly maneuvering the characters into a lesbian relationship?
>those shitty as fuck, even for modern anime, cgi trees
>the two helis going off screen to explode with little animation, and what animation there is is just static images sliding around
>like goddamn, it's almost as bad that infamous QUALITY car chase clip
>hair color is a gradient
>has lesbian orgies, 10/10 must watch anime of the season
So this is what people who complain about everyone gushing over Korrasami, and ignoring the problems of the finale as a whole, are feeling
>I hypothesize that Bryke was given an order for more seasons after the season 1 miniseries and said to themselves, "shit, what the hell are we going to do?" So they plotted out a general endgame.

>mfw I realized that Mako getting back with Korra post amnesia in Book 2 only makes sense if they were deliberately poisoning the well between him and Asami so Korra and Asami could hook up
I mean either that or he was just deliberately depicted as a shithead. One of the two.
I was going to stop after season 2 but my friend would come over and we'd watch it together every weekend.
I'm glad I stayed for S3 and maybe a bit of S4, but overall the show is remarkably average and doesn't deserve all the praise its getting. S3 was easily the best season. Its easy to watch a series when the villain is likable, and relatable, S1 had that, S2 didn't, and S3 had it in spades, S4 felt like power hungry/mommy issues which were thrown in at literally the last second to make Kuvira seem more human and relatable, which is the worst kind of way to develop a character.
I don't think Korra is a bad character either, I think shes just not that interesting. I just don't think she added anything to the series which is hilarious considering shes the main character. She was literally a vessel for cool fight scenes and not much else and it shows in a lot of the episodes which don't focus on her as much.
All I can think of is "have seen almost any animated action show in the last 5 years?"
>I was going to stop after season 2 but my friend would come over and we'd watch it together every weekend.
This is a legit reason for watching a show you don't like. Congrats. I'll never understand the rest of /co/ on this, though.

I don't really agree at all and we don't even have enough common ground for me to begin knowing how to argue it. Agree to disagree, I guess.
You know what makes it harder to say goodbye to the series? I didn't like the ending. It's hard to be so bitter about something you really enjoyed, and to know that you'll never have anything but the bitterness.
I think they just throw fucking darts at plotpoints and don't care one bit at how they get there.
the fact that her brother is being drugged and more-or-less consensually fucked by a literal dragon lady and probably has been for years
and we're halfway through the show and suddenly
the rival shows up to introduce some kind of looping timeline plot OUT OF NOWHERE!
And then you have stuff like Fukuda complaining on his twitter that the japanese are such prudes and he could have put more lesbian rape in there, if they weren't so stuffy.
Cross Ange is a crazy show made by crazy people. But the enjoyable kind of crazy.
This along with Parasyte and Rage of Bahamut has been making my weeks lately.
>How the fuck can anyone take out two helis with a single nade?
>What has to happen in the writing room for the people to all agree that, YES, this should happen.
That's actually pretty tame for the Wacky Mecha genre. I've seen a guy tied to a chair loosen a screw from it, kick it up into the skylight above him, then catch a shard of falling glass to cut his bonds and kill his captors with.
If you want to watch a show with a budget, we have those too.
Did you guys see the finale?
My favorite same-sex pairing was confirmed for canon!!
Do you have any idea of the implications of this for the entire LGBT community?!
As of right now "It depends on how you look at it." Meaning, there's just enough stuff so subtly hinted at, and then right in the last 15 seconds of the final episode, the have a scene that feels really out of place if you interpret the subtle scenes differently.
The last scene of the series seems to ambiguously portray Korra and Asami as lesbians for some reason.
Absolutely 100%. Uprising is easily one of the best action shows of the past 5 years. It's pretty similar to Batman Beyond if you liked that.
>but it's really subtle and understated all the way through.
They managed to make a coherent story with fun, engaging characters out of a mobage game.
