A few nights ago, I was debating with some people as to whether or not Korrasami was cannon, and whether it was "forced" or not. Well the creators just took the words right out of my fucking mouth. EVERY argument that I made is in here (the music, past hints, etc). I hope you see this and know what it's like to feel the sting of defeat!

This is potentially the worst romance ever, as evident by the people who weren't sure whether it was on purpose or not. Namely because the 'hints' were at an autism Chris Nolan level of compression and could be taken as anything, let alone a super secret lesbian relationship. Nobody missed anything, it's just that it was so poorly executed and build up.

Well, you sure showed us, OP.

Showed us that even with all the time those two said they had, they still couldn't write a budding romance in a way that didn't break suspension of disbelief for half of the fandom. The ending reveal is actually more forgivable if they just tacked it on at the end like a lot of people expected. Now we've got just another confirmation of just how terrible these two are at writing for characters and in general.

I don't know if they confirmed comics or not. I haven't heard anything personally. I'm not sure if they should either.

I wondered if those cues were just my imagination. They were subtle. And I figured if they went that way, it wouldn't be so subtle. Though I guess they needed to be to go under the gaydar of network censors.

Plus Mako seemed to be on the outs with both of the gals. Just as they seemed closer than ever. Though I still didn't think they would go there. Eh. Sure. Why not? Go for it.

I probably didn't think it would because how u conventional it is to see gay couples in kids shows even today.

Rather makes Nick dropping network broadcasts of the eps interesting.

What? You don't like two women together? You need dick? What are ya? A faggot?

And tell gay couples raising kids somehow they cannot raise their kids. Sounds like the same bullshit people made about interracial marriage in the 60s.

I too got suspicious, but only that they might actually try that. I immediately dismissed it as the build up had in fact not been nearly enough to make it work. This was silly of me, of course: Bryan and Mike have shown us over and over again that such small things as reasonable flow and progression are beneath them when it comes to fulfilling all those important bullet points on the plot checklist.
>>
>>51750602
It had a pretty shit period, I'm not going to lie. Lucy maybe suicide was probably the dumbest/most entertaining plot development in a while. Then the creator came on /co/ and got told why her comic was sucking so badly. Once people stopped whining about Lucy the comic picked up decently, so it all worked out I guess.

Right on the money.

The people smiting the ending on this thread aren't claiming that it's not a homosexual relationship, they're claiming that Bryke are just shit writers and that the resolution came in totally left field. Anybody can cherry pick out three scenes from 500 minutes of film and claim that there are 'hints'. They want something more, when there isn't any more than one simple fact, the relationship made no sense at all, confirmed or not confirmed.

Oh how wrong so many of you are here. Since I don't feel the need to respond to all the idiocy, I will address the show's move to online. Nickelodeon switched timeslots around, cut their budget, and failed to market it. In fact, they only gave a weeks notice before releasing book 3. Nick messed them up, not the show itself. The show is actually very well-received. Numerous review sites can attest to that.
>>
>>51751550
More like Nick saw how bad Season 2 was, realized how hard they'd screwed themselves with that whole buying three more seasons at once decision, and lost all faith in the project.

Also, why exactly should anyone give a shit about what review sites say? Are people not allowed to think for themselves now? Even fucking Roger Ebert thought Phantom Menace was a good film.

Don't give a fuck whether there's same-sex relationships in one of my favorite cartoons, but what pisses me off is how they forced it into the last episode with no fucking buildup. Everything about TLoK felt so goddamn rushed. I never felt this problem with TLA.

Not only that, but they said this was the last Avatar series. What a shit way to end. Absolutely depressing.

Avatar was indeed one huge story, but it had all these other little stories in every episode/set of episodes to keep it interesting. A lot of these were connected with the main storyline in some way. The problem with TLoK was how disjointed every season felt. It would've been better to just have one main story, and find a way to include Amon, and all the other bad guys.

I dropped it after the second season ended, and I really wasn't enjoying the second season by about 2 episodes in, but I needed to stick it out.

That whole "make the human and spirit world one!" thing was absolute garbage, mainly because it basically destroys Korra's relevance to everything, after it happened I was just completely done.

Korra was so annoyingly unlike-able, Mako was a whipped bitch, and Bolin was boring as fuck.

I never really saw Asami as anything other than a nuisance, because after the whole 'my dads in charge of the evil robots" thing happened she was only there for romantic shenanigans and didn't actually offer anything to the plot, not to mention she had basically no fucking personality.

Enjoying more mature works and growing out of cartoons is perfectly natural.

no, all that was fairly tame other than mlp, /v/ invaded and started brand loyalty shit posting and it caught on, that was NEVER a thing on /co/ until about 3 years ago.

It's calmed down now though, the gays are getting a little pushy but it's getting back to where it used to be.

an additonal problem is that /pol/ style shit posting came to /co/ and turned off a lot of the jews, which as you know jews created something like 90% of all /co/ related content, so when they left the humor and board specific OC went with them.

Now try again without some arbitrary opinion you pulled out of your ass.

Once again, you're assuming this didn't happen to the OP. Who's to say he doesn't enjoy mature cinema? As far as naturally growing out of cartoons, I seriously doubt he watches as many cartoons as he did when he was a child.

>>51755974
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” - C. S. Lewis

As you grow older, at a certain point something as cartoons cannot satisfy your intellectual hunger anymore, and you move on to superior media. This is the whole point, if you DO really grow up, you lose all interest in them, it all has nothing to do with "accepting what you like"

I never believed in scapegoating /v/. I place blame solely on the obnoxious autists and the webcomic faggots that couldn't keep their SJW crusade to themselves. That wave of Sinfest and damn near daily Dobson threads were particularly painful.
>>
>>51756126

C S Lewis was a pious asshole. The Narnia stories were shit. Susan gets locked out of heaven, away from her family for eternity, for the sin of being a teenage girl and interested in boys. Also all Muslims worship the devil, unless they are good Muslims, in which case they are actually praying to Jesus without realising it.
>>
>>51756206
there isn't any overtly SJW shit on /co/ though I don't know where any of you got that idea from.

Dobson is all /v/ fucking talks about, /co/ used to like him back when he was CattyN.

It's not a scapegoat, I go on a lot of boards and /v/ clamps onto shit that catches its attention and runs it into the ground hard.

Why? Because it's animated? You're telling me that if an animated series had the same dialogue, themes, and musical score as your favorite films; it would automatically be rendered unwatchable infantile shit because it doesn't have people standing in front of a camera?

That's pretty stupid, anon.

I'll admit one thing though, if you're the type of insufferable cunt who watches film to fuel your "intellectual hunger", then you definitely wouldn't enjoy this cartoon show. But since we're posting on /tv/, I think it's a fairly safe bet that your intellectualism is entirely put on.

Oh come on, it's a show for kids. Don't even deny it. We are not discussing Waltz with Bashir.
>>
>>51756276
It's a fucking kids show. It is made for idiot children to enjoy and pass the time with.

If you want to argue that some animes are intellectually stimulating or artfully made, that's fine, and I would even agree in some cases, but this is The Legend of Korra we are talking about. It is made for 8 year old children to understand and enjoy. If you ritually watch and enjoy it as an adult you need to grow the fuck up.

Tiny Toons is more intellectually stimulating than any anime

So no, they are likely just best friends. It's pretty ignorant to take that 2 girls holding hands is a sign of homosexuality.

"if" is a keyword here. Very, very, i mean very, rare cartoon can be considered to be on the same level as cinema in all aspects you mentioned. I believe there're some, but honestly can't come up with any examples right now. What i know for sure, is that Avatar not one of them. It's a cartoon for teens.
And all i did, just pointed that if you really did grow up, i wouldn't even be explaining all this to you, and we didn't have this argument to begin with.
But judging by

i say you got rather upset

>>51756395
I'm not talking about the show, I'm talking about cartoons in general.

I just don't understand why cartoons in particular are seen as different from like movies or literature. No one will bat an eye if you mention you're reading Lord of the Rings or rewatching Star Wars, but these are all properties created to be consumed by children.
>>

Well, no
>>
>>51756399
You're not arguing that something can't be artfully made if children can understand it? And you're telling me I need to grow up?

If your argument is that all media has to be "intellectually stimulating" in order to be enjoyable, then yeah, cartoons probably aren't for you. But you're also a complete faggot.

>If you ritually watch and enjoy it as an adult you need to grow the fuck up.

I don't watch it. I watch cartoons that are even more shallow; and nowhere in your tedious post have you explained why this is a bad thing.
>>
>>51756507
Both George and Tolkien describe them that way, so take it up with them. I'm not sure why you would disagree though. They are clearly made with children in mind. That doesn't mean that adults can't enjoy them, they are entertaining for people of all ages. And guess what, so is this cartoon.

Sure, I was just wondering if his objection to cartoons is literally just the fact that they are drawn.

>And all i did, just pointed that if you really did grow up, i wouldn't even be explaining all this to you, and we didn't have this argument to begin with.

And all I did was point out that if you were really grown up, you wouldn't be so concerned with acting so very grown up.

>i say you got rather upset

I'm not. I think people who say, "I only watch INTELLECTUAL cinema" are insufferable cunts. This doesn't make me upset, frustrated, or whatever other arbitrary emotion you want to assign to me. I think it's a silly way to treat any hobby.

I just don't get why Korra and Asami didn't kiss.

The writers confirmed that they were cannon in a romantic way. I thought if Korra was going to end up with anyone it should have been Asami but what are the writers so afraid of?

No actually gives a flying duck about homosexuality these days. I really isn't a big deal.
But the make it such a big deal in TLOK. They have them hold hands for a second at the end of the season and then later confirm it on their twitter.
Why didn't they just kiss? Every other couple did.

It's like that guy who tells you he isn't racist, but... The writers are like ya we are so progressive about gay people as long as it is in the last episode as a sort of hinted implied ambiguity that we will later confirm on our blog and we won't actually show any gay stuff on the cartoon because we are afraid of the reaction.

Like they got moved to the internet, they could have made anything really, there must have been little to no network interference this season as it is obvious Nick didn't give a flying fuck about them.

The problem is actually, that i act as a normal person would, while you just being childish.

What i meant, was that most of the movies are far more intellectual than most of the cartoons, thus as you grow smarter with age you naturally move on to something more interesting and thought provoking.
Your insult was absolutely uncalled for
>>
>>51756696
>I'm just curious, you didn't just made that up? I'm confident that Hobbit was a book for children, but LoTR and Silmarillion? Anyway, citation needed

Actually, you're right. He wrote the Hobbit as a children's book, and so The Lord of the Rings was initially published as a children's book; but he considers them to be appropriate for anyone to read.

>If you have problems with development, yes

Lazy insults aside, explain what makes this cartoon different from the franchises I just mentioned. Do you think that someone enjoying the Hobbit has "problems with development"? I mean, it's a book for children! That means anyone entertained by it needs to grow the fuck up, right?

It's a slightly different situation, but without going into the details, i say yes. Just try reading it, you will understand what i'm talking about. You wouldn't be really interested and legit entertained by reading Mother Goose Tales, would you? Would you discuss it on the internet? Would you protect it as a hobby worthy of an adult?
>>
>>51756825
>The problem is actually, that i act as a normal person would

Oh, I'll agree with you here. Your views regarding cartoons and those who watch them are very normal. Though that doesn't make them well thought-out or sensible. As an aside, am I the only one concerned about the growing number of people coming here to brag about their mainstream opinions and how great their normalfag beliefs are? Who gives a shit?

>What i meant, was that most of the movies are far more intellectual than most of the cartoons

This part of your statement is true, and that's why most people aren't looking at cartoons for intellectual stimulation. We're looking at them to do things that is simply impossible to capture in a live action series.

>thus as you grow smarter with age you naturally move on to something more interesting and thought provoking.

The part of your statement is just nonsense. Yes, most adults watch movies because they are thought-provoking and emotive. I do. I watch far more films than I do cartoons. That's a natural part of growing up. The idea that I should have to completely abandon something I enjoy however, is nonsense. They do not exist for the same reason and are not attempting to do the same thing. And I personally consider a well-made cartoon far more palatable as art than a generically mediocre movie.

>Your insult was absolutely uncalled for

You should cry about it, then.

What a silly comparison. You're a silly, silly man.

>Would you protect it as a hobby worthy of an adult?

Why would I think less of someone for liking nursery rhymes? These stories have existed since the 1600s and most of us grew up learning them. I see absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of nostalgia, and it's something that can easily be shared with one's children. You really are very pretentious, you know that?

>Citation needed
Are you fucking kidding me? Lucas described it as a kid's movie to Richard Dreyfuss back in 1977.

When questioned how did he go from writing a children's story, to a "mature fantasy epic for mature adults such as myself", Tolkien said - "My work did not 'evolve' into a serious work. It started like that. The so-called 'children's story' was a fragment, torn out of an already existing mythology. In so far as it was dressed up as 'for children,' in style or manner.
