How can people like Asami as a character?

>Literallyno development as a character post season 1
>Walking talking character device
>"Techincal" skills near Deus Ex machina levels
>Literally used as nothing but mere contrast for relationships between characters in all other circumstances

Why can't these threads go away. Why are people who hate LoK so autistic?
>>
>>78758445
She is also a marry sue simillar to korra.
>>
>>78758601

I'd argue that she's MORE of a Mary Sue than Korra, because at least Korra struggles and changes throughout the seasons.

Asami?

Not so much.
>>
>>78758445
I like to think that it is because she can fit whatever traits you want. The only things that are really established about her is that she is nice, looks good and have some level of technical skill. Anything else is up for grabs. Which is why i personally can't recognise the Korrasami fandom version of Asami which seems to include being confident and dominant.
>>
She's a girl. That alone is enough to get her a basic fanbase

Autism is black in white

There is only progress when color is involved.

>>78760769

She'd let Amon and Unalaq kill each other due to their conflicting views and end having both her problems killing themselves.

She'd also out gun the shit of the Red Lotus. That Giant Robot is no match for a 1000 megaton thermonuclear bomb.

Those are in colour and he's definitely autistic. Like you.

Yeah but his art is like Chris Chan tier

Your opinion is 110% ill relevant.

*bad guys
>>
>>78760865
Your dialogue is in the same tier.

And your art is just one tier above Chris'
>>
>>78760769
no clue.
She's shown to be good at fighting and driving and not much else. She needed help from others to run her own business and never batted on eye toward the unusual requests when it was finally revealed Varrick was war-profiteering.
>>
>>78760937

I consider that a good thing because Chris's art is Legendarily bad.

I'll take that as "I've seen improvement."
>>
>>78760975
As opposed to Korra being halfway alright at fighting, and nothing else? The Avatar does get fight/bending training.
>>
>>78761050

Korra canonically didn't even finish her Air Bending training Tenzin was right that Pro Bending was a massive waste of her time.

Meaning Korra went throughout life only using 2 of her 4 elements.

Asami as the Avatar would get 5 elements. Air, Water, Fire, Earth, and Money. She would excel at them all, and drive a motorcycle... in the sky and on the water.
>>
>>78761050
what part of Korra being such a massive Mary Sue do people not get why she is simply too perfect of an Avatar?
Book Air alone:

Hi, Bryan
>>
So about Asami's love life.
She was interested in Mako after hitting him with her motorcycle.
She was interested in Korra after spending a year bathing and diapering her during recovery.
Does Asami have a medical fetish?
Will Korra wake up in a body cast one morning, and discover that Asami has no intention of ever freeing her?

Nah. Her main method of transportation around the city would be a massive gas guzzling hummer like vehicle.

Long distance travel is by Yacht or by Private Jet/Blimp. A huge enormous space wasting vehicle for one person.

Why save the world when you can't do it comfortably.

Anyone remember that one episode of Drawn Together where Clara tortures that one character over and over and over again because everytime she "fixes" him she thinks Jesus is going to accept her into heaven?

I love that episode.
>>
What happened after Book One, anon? I only saw that first one and I liked her as a character and actually thought she a Korra would be a cute couple: rich and poor(er), femme and butch, light skin and dark skin, nonbender and avatar... But I've heard from a lot of people that they ended up kinda forced.
>>
>>78761531
"Forced" is the wrong word, it was simply without any development. They showed no outward signs of romance, and then decided to walk out into the sunset together at the last minute
>>
>>78761531
They literally coupled at the end with the bare minimum of buildup in the final season.
The season before that they just said they were okay with cheating on each other with the same guy.
>>
>>78761612
It was pretty forced. They had no romantic interactions for 4 seasons, were fighting over the same guy for 2 seasons, and ended the last five minutes of the show with happy ever after lookalike. No Kissu though.
>>
>>78761531
In book 2 she's basically just the universe's designated butt monkey for a while with a subplot that went absolutely nowhere.
Then she spent what little screentime she had in 3 and 4 desperately trying to piece together some semblance of an actual personality in fear of just poofing out of existence from sheer irrelevance.
And then BAM, lesbians.
>>
>>78761660
Forced would be if the fought each other for 4 seasons and then changed modes for some other scene that could not happen if they were not getting along. The scene simply lacked visible support, just like most of the season. The word "forced" here is just meme talk.
>>
>>78760683
You know that's not gonna happen, anon.

I can only imagine what /co/ will be like when micheal makes the korrasami comic.
I might just have to hide and filter any mention of korra
>>
>>78761767
But isn't going full fairytale between two good friends pretty forced? (whose friendship in itself is forced).

I mean it comes off as specificly trying to appease someone just for the sake of it. I honestly believe that if Korrasami hadn't been one of the most popular fandom ships we would have had a different ending.
>>
>>78761910
No, it wasn't. There was nothing preventing it. It just didn't get proper exposure. The whole show was plagued by motivators that were told and never shown.
>>
>>78762044
It didn't get the exposure for sure, but the characters where also established as hetero. Which would prevent any kind of homosexual pairing including them. They were also shown to not actually be interested in each other romanticly which also prevents the pairing.

It's not like it was a maybe they will maybe they won't kinda thing. It was considered by mostly everyone to be a crack-ship with hot porn. So it was pretty forced when it actually happened.
>>
>>78762276
You only saw either of them in one prior relationship, so there was no real pattern. Not to mention that nobody forced you to live with the new romance, because the series ended immediately. There were no elements preventing the pairing, there was no potential conflict caused by the pairing, and there was no duration in which you had to live with the pairing impacting events.
>>
>>78758445
I felt sorry for her being cucked twice, but then I realize she's now trying to date the person responsible for ruining her previous relationship, as if that will go well for her. Seriously, how are Asami and Korra even friends, let alone lovers?
>>
>>78762357
The elements preventing the pairing i allready mentioned.

And while there was no conflict within the show, there was a huge conflict within the fanbase which included the creators.

And with the upcoming comics it is definately going to impact the events of the show and fanbase.

So yeah them getting together was forced into the show to please certain people and get Bryke praise and hopefully for them an award or two. It's pretty much as bad and forced as Makorra.
>>
>>78762616
There was nothing forced, because nothing prevented it. You just don't like the ending.
>>
>>78762674
Well duh, i obviously don't like the ending. But it's mostly because it makes no sense within the show. The pairing isn't even unlikely imo, it's impossible.

It, like alot of things in LoK, only happened because Bryke needed it to. Which seems forced to me, because basic writing would prevent it from happening. Also i did give you examples of things that prevented the ending, mainly it can be summed up as "the characters being out of character". If something requires your characters to not be themselves you should probably not go with it.
>>
>>78762830
Clearly it wasn't impossible, because it happened. They were no out of character, they just didn't act in accordance to the fanfic in your imagination.
>>
>>78762869
I didn't change the character traits to make a pandering ship canon. My only "headcanon" is that the established characters remain consistent with their development.

And obviously the writers can make anything happen if they force it hard enough, like they did with this. But sure lets praise fanfic tier writing because it sounds hot from time to time.
>>
It's simple OP: they don't hate women.
>>
>>78762978
A privileged liberal with father trust issues and a buff muscle chick. Two characters that always got along. They spent a year together interacting intimately while the privileged girl gave 24/7 home care to the muscle chick, and then stayed together intimately at the ending. Sounds like an effective formula for lesbians.
>>
>>78763202
Got along =/= liked. And Asami was pretty pissed throughout book 2 that she was once again being left for muscle chick.

Korra lived with Tenzin while in the wheelchair until she was send home to the southpole. For all we know Asami only helped her dress once for Jinoras ceremony.

So all thats really going for it is the forced ending that lasted less than 5 minutes. All the other stuff is headcanon made up to justify the lack of development.
>>
>>78763303
There was no forced ending. Just an ending that didn't align with your fanfic.
>>
>>78763355
The show isn't fanfic.
>>
>>78758445
I thought that Asami's skills were simple and practical since as the non bender of the group, he has to rely on smarts, hard work, and gadgets. Just think of how great the final battle with Amon would've been if they both started out with hand to hand combat.
>>
>>78763378
Yeah, which is why the show includes them leaving together.
>>
>>78763494
Which is forced because the show doesn't support that ending in any way.

I'm not saying it didn't happen. I'm saying it doesn't make sense that it did, and that it shouldn't have happened.
>>
>>78763546
They even made romantic googly eyes at each other in the episodes leading up to the finale. Take some time to re-watch the clip show.
>>
>>78763632
At the platonic tea time? please That is fanfic. Actually Asami managed nothing in that scene. Whereas Tenzin was able to calm Korra down.
>>
>>78758445
Jesus, fucking, Christ. It's been a year already, and you still talking about this show, so stop pretending that you don't like it.

>>78758445
I liked her because she seemed to be the only character portrayed as consistently nice and good-hearted.

As the seasons passed, it became clear that the only reason she seemed that way was because Bryke had given her a characterization about as solid as wet cardboard. But I guess that in TLOK, not-being-a-dumb-asshole can be considered a plus.
>>
>>78766320
I object. Her characterization was as solid as concrete wall. She might not develop, but at least she didn't deteriorate.
>>
>>78766320
There was probably no intention to use her past the first season. She was just an in to let Korra meet Hiroshi Sato.
>>
>>78766367
she most definitely did back in Book 2
>>
>>78766595
She was meant to be an Equalist spy, but then Bryke took a liking to her and decided against that.
>>
>>78760726
Nah my man, that shit is almost half of all protagonists but definitely not Korra thorough all 4 books.
>>
>>78767680
We were not watching the same show
(and yes that definitely includes s3 & s4).
