I remember. I remember nobody thought they would, yet they did.
is that really all it takes for /u/ to call things like that a "win"? I mean, I know we can't have nice things 99% of the time, but you don't really have to lower your standards that much because of it.

Some victory. The awful writing, terrible characters, contrived plots, and general disservice to the original series only won this show apathy or scorn. And of course>>1964525
since the writers couldn't be bothered to show an actual friendship that manages to develop into something onscreen rather than the far background.
They drew paralells with wedding scenes just before they got together, they had korra blushing and crushing on Asami the entire season (and some of season 3).
Sadly, this is as much of a win we can get in an american cartoon, which is rather sad. Hopefully, we can actually see an actual relationship when we get the comics, since they can avoid the troubles that came in with regulations as far as showing homosexual behavior on television.
In otherwords, blame executive meddling at Nick for keeping it low key.
It only happened because Korra x Mako was so hated. It only got more hate after they doubled down on forcing it in the second season. Only then was it even considered as a possibility.
Ironically it's only because of how much praise this got. The execs got the message that a gay couple wouldn't get shit on, but instead get them praised.
That likely wouldn't have been possible if this didn't get showered with so much love and praise.
I'm going by wiki for the day so and this is a first draft:
Remember, remember the Nineteenth of December,
Yuri at the end of the season and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Yuri season
Should ever be forgot.
for a second there i thought i was at /a/
normally /u/ is all over this stuff, just as >>1964547 mentioned when the episode aired and pretty much the entire time since then
OF COURSE this is not like Muh chinese cartoons where they can make out in the middle of the show, but it's still a huge improvement, thus it deserves to be called "winning"
baby steps everyone
