>>78948892 my only disagreement is with the complaint about the very end. asami worked hard to end any sort of backstabby relationship between herself and korra earlier, and while there wasn't much leading up to it onscreen, it's perfectly reasonable for romance to bloom in a time of strong tension & grief. people tend to grow close a lot faster when working together to survive against terrible odds.
>>78949089 >asami worked hard to end any sort of backstabby relationship between herself and korra earlier we don't exactly see that. I mean, they are already friends by S03 somehow; it's just... weird considering they didn't really do anything together before S03 or even had any kind of talk about backstabbing each other. Hell, even considering S03/S04 they didn't interact much to be considered "best friends".
>it's perfectly reasonable for romance to bloom in a time of strong tension & grief only if there is buildup can a romance bloom. In this case there was none. Notice that friendship alone does not lead to romance (this would imply that Gohan and Piccolo ending together in DBZ would make complete sense). Also, about "romance blooming in times of grief", i'd say it's not... realistic. You don't go to a funeral and ask someone out, like Korra kind of did since the guy just died. Also, all of Korra's moments of tension were with other people. Tenzin/Mako helped Korra much more than Asami at some points of S04. Hell, Tenzin actually goes all the way to the south pole to see her. In the end, the romance doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it; they shouldn't be friends (or at least they didn't explain to us how they are), and friendship is different from romantic buildup. Every moment of struggle or doubt from Korra, she was with other people. And then, she ends up with Asami? might as well be someone random.
>>78949255 why must the buildup of their friendship be onscreen in order to be valid? we already know korra has bad writing & things that should've happened onscreen happen off it instead, and by the end a close friendship is definitely in place. asking someone out at a funeral, an event dedicated to respecting a dead person, is completely different from asking them out at some point after the person has died. if i were in their position, i would love to get away from everything for a bit with someone i cared about.
>>78949352 >why must the buildup of their friendship be onscreen in order to be valid? just so it doesn't looks like it magically happened. It's not about "being valid"; Korrasami is also valid. It's about not being out of nowhere.
>is completely different from asking them out at some point after the person has died like, just after you left the funeral, right? the point is.. the person is still thinking about her dad, you don't go and ask her on a date. Damn.. the city is still destroyed, they probably didn't even buried him yet. If you want to make the person feel better, there are other ways to go about it that won't involve using her moment of weakness to have your way.
>>78949440 >I think it gets hate primarily because it's just not as good as the original it was legitimate bad. Seriously, how can people ignore so many flaws and just say "you hate it because the original was better".
>>78949428 i suppose. i don't think it was great storytelling or anything, it was mostly the idea that korra & asami couldn't possibly have gotten over tensions from earlier seasons when that's perfectly reasonable, and the idea that people must act in very specific ways after a tragedy, as if stress and grief can't make people behave erratically.
>>78949613 one thing is to like it. Another is to know it was objectively bad because of it's flaws. Calling people that didn't like it "nostalgiafags" is jut silly. You can ignore Kuvira going inside RC with her giant mecha for no reason if you want, but you can't claim this does not turn the story to complete shit.
>>78949718 >most things on /co/ korra being bad is subjective it's really not subjective; when Korra thinks it's a good plan to take down the most dangerous crimminals on earth by herself, that's objectively stupid. When Korra opens the portals, that's completely retarded. When Kuvira goes inside RC for no reason, that's forced plot. The show is full of those moments, you're just ignoring them.
Korra had its moments, but I couldn't appreciate it very much. It felt like every season wanted to be 24, but set in the Avatar universe.
A thriller series in a magic world isn't such a terrible idea, but when the main characters are plot armored teanagers who are dealing with family/celebrity drama all the time it doesn't work all that great.
Yeah, it's a kids show, but so was Avatar and Avatar got away with it because it was more of a fun adventure series with the fate of the world being resolved after 65 episodes, not four different plots spanning 12/14 episodes each.
>>78946439 I don't know why they ruined so much from the original series in Korra, bending went from being a connection that people had developed with the environment around them to it just being doled out by dragon turtles for no real reason and the avatar went from being a mysterious balancing force with the past experience of all previous avatars to just a power-boost given by some dumb embodiment of goodliness. I think the Wan episodes ultimately ruined more than they fixed, even if they were the entertaining and visually interesting highlights of a crappy season.
I still think the show is worth watching, especially for the third season where it actually becomes good, but man, it's basically the Star Wars prequels but for TLA.
>>78951094 >bending went from being a connection that people had developed with the environment around them to it just being doled out by dragon turtles for no real reason i think it was only firebending and waterbending that depended on the moon/sun, and even so this does not exclude the dragon turtles from existing. I mean, the power had to come from some place. They can't just look at the Sun and get powers.
>>78951157 I'd rather have the source of bending be more alluded to as being a connection to nature (like how we were told that people started earthbending after learning from badgermoles or firebending from the dragons) rather than it just being "Oh the dragon turtles did it". It just removes an element of mystery that was better being there than it wasn't.
