No, it wasn't. There was no build up, and the moment was so ambiguous Bryke had to confirm Korrasami being canon on not one but TWO blog posts.

It was cowardly, tepid, and ineffective.

The last season was so garbage I didn't even care about the finale, didn't watch it till a couple months later out of apathy. This show is onw of those things that is so infuriating because it had so much potential and even managed to use some of it but dropped the ball real hard on nearly everything important.

It was so badly conveyed, that I, a delusional yurifag, STILL wasn't sure if they'd actually done it.
You don't just wait until the last thirty seconds of a show to kind of imply that two main characters were officially rubbing clams after being willing to drag two whole seasons down with entire episodes based around their terrible straight romance subplots. It's cheap.

I still can't fucking believe that the season where they're supposedly "dating" off-screen during the second half was the season where they actually had the LEAST chemistry.
They spend most of Book 4 apart and when they do reunite, they have one blatantly shipbait-y scene together and then spend the rest of the series barely interacting again until the very end.

I happen to have proof Bryke lied
Also, in an interview in early 2014 when asked about shipping, they said roughly that they think people like the idea of happening in their heads rather then playing out on the show.
In fall 2014, they had another interview, and when asked about Korrasami, they said almost verbatim "we can't make the pairing that has the most likes or whatever on tumblr, we do what we made"
Basically, the tone they were giving until the end was "we're fine that people like the pairing, but we aren't going to follow through with it just because the fan base wants it, or at all.

The ship was just badly developed. They hated each other for the first two seasons and then suddenly they are friends in just one scene. And then they are suddenly the characters that care about each other the most, because, they hung out together? And we don't even get to see it. There was hardly any build up.

I would sooner believe that Mako and Wu were together because their relationship got entire episodes to work with and build off each other over time.
>>
>>78295806
It wasn't planned but it was a supported path among the staff and they started planting the seed in Book 3 at the end.

But the reason it wasn't approached earlier is the reason many shows steer away from such is that its just been a given networks will just tell them no.

It just came into a unique position they just went with it.

So now its set a precedent and will be harder for Nick just to say no anymore.

Now its time just to sit back and see where things go, we know Cartoon Network is open to it now. All that is left is Disney.
>>
As far as this show goes, I think a lot of stuff was underdeveloped or even very badly developed. So as far as Korrasami goes, I don't think it was any more badly developed than the rest of the show. I think they absolutely could've done much better as far as having Korra and Asami interact more and actually have more of a reason to get together (although they weren't TOGETHER together at the end of the show anyways - just beginning to explore their relationship in a romantic way). However you do also have to take into account that they couldn't get away with making it too gay on Nick, so they were stunted somewhat. Again, they still could've done better, but if you want to complain about the show there are so many other things to complain more about. If Mako and Korra would've gotten together it would've been absolutely cringeworthy after all that's happened.

And as much as people like to yell about it being 'for the tumblerites', whoever it was 'for', it was a pretty great thing to do, and at least partially broke down a barrier that was long overdue to be broken down. People will still complain, but I'll always appreciate what the show did, even when there's much, MUCH better stuff that comes out in the future.
>>
>>78296052
>So now its set a precedent and will be harder for Nick just to say no anymore.

This. And honestly, it would be hard for Nick to say no anymore anyways, because of how public opinion has swayed in the past couple years. A company that says 'no' to a creator that wants to include gay characters is going to be seen as the 'bad guys'. 2015 was already pretty damn gay in animation, 2016 will probably be more so (although with Nick's lineup of very cartoony shows lacking substance, it probably won't be from them unless they come up with something new).
>>
>>78296069
1. there was no development at all. It wasn't 'badly developed', there was no development.

2. Nick didn't say anything that they couldn't do. Bryke just thought they couldn't

3. as Bryke themselves said, they did it "for the fans, for gay people, and for themselves".

4. it was retarded and Korra should end alone.
>>
>>78295904
They only disliked each other for a small period of time, even bonded a bit in book 1 and outside the Mako thing they cooperated throughout Book 2.

Book 3 was officially burying the hatchet and they bonded over the course of how long that Book ran with the end setting up further developments for book 4.

It was shit writing and shit planning.

Korra SHOULD have ended up alone to reinforce the character arc that they spent the last 4 seasons building. Either that or after she did all this hard work to be alone she could have come back to Mako and worked things out. But Asami? Made zero fuckin sense. It was just bad writing, gayus ex machina, stupid as fuck pandering bullshit.

It was terrible writing in-story but I entirely understand due to the restrictions of Nick on allowing a homosexual relationship, and really appreciate that they had the balls to push through with it. Yeah, there are real world reasons this ending was needed, and I'm not exactly crying she didn't mend the ship with Mako.
>>
>>78296052
Nick doesn't seem to be against it to begin with. And no they didn't ship it in the staff any more than any other ship. The real reason it wasn't approached earlier is because they hadn't thought about it yet and choose to react to the fan base.

The earliest time they could start planting the seed so to speak would be book 4, but at the time they weren't going for that either. They got the permission halfway through the season and told some of the staff some time after that.
>>
>>78296203
1. There was definitely development, but as anon above said, they didn't realize it was something they wanted to do until season 3. But there was definitely development - their interactions in season 3 and the end of season 3 being an example. I think one problem is that people are used to a certain KIND of development of romantic relationships, but Korra and Asami weren't romantically interested in each other at that point (or Korra wasn't at least), so what we were seeing was only the beginning of that at the end of the show. Again, I still don't think it's well developed because we didn't get to see them get that much closer as friend (or not enough, imo). However, there IS development, for sure.

2. Same difference really. And I'm sure there's some things Nick wouldn't have let them done, like have a kiss onscreen. The important thing is that, while most creators don't even THINK about pushing that barrier, Mike and Bryan did, and they actually bothered to fight for it.

3. Something wrong with that?

4. k

>>78296296
Funny thing is though, no matter how much people complain about it, it's not going to change, and I'm glad it happened. Even if it was pandering (which I absolutely don't think it was), it was an important thing, and something the show is going to be remembered for. And heck, it was sweet, even if it was underdeveloped. In other circumstances, I actually would totally agree that the series should've ended with Korra alone, and I would've much preferred it like that, but considering the unusual circumstances, I'm glad she ended up with Asami. You don't have to agree with me, but there's no changing it now, and now that it's out there it has meant a lot to a lot of people, and, I think, moved American animation forward at least a bit. It makes people happy, so let it go.
>>
>>78296069
It was a shit thing to do because it's so fake. It's obvious pandering and nothing else. If it had been for something great they would have done something real for it. Like make an openly gay character. It isn't coincidence that they choose to change those two characters out of their entire lineup.
>>
>>78296461
I don't think there are a whole lot of people saying that it was incredible writing. People are happy about it for other reasons. So if you're mad people are praising it because they think it's god-level writing, that's definitely not it. As for 'changing' the characters - not really. Bryan said it was something he considered since before the show came out. I have to agree to disagree with people who say it felt 'fake' or 'forced' or like 'pandering' though, because it honestly didn't feel like that to me. It felt like something the creators wanted to do, and it felt a lot more natural than the whole Korra/Mako thing at the end of season 1, which absolutely did feel somewhat forced.

>>
>>78296421
>Korra and Asami weren't romantically interested in each other at that point
And they never came to be either in the actual show, which is a huge problem.

>However, there IS development, for sure
Not for a romance. And the way the ending is framed is not a "lets see where it goes" ending. It is a happy ever after ending. They might aswell have gotten married because thats what the ending was implying is going to happen anyway.

>Mike and Bryan did, and they actually bothered to fight for it.
They didn't fight for anything. They asked and got the expectable answer. And now they're harvesting praise for doing nothing at all.

>Something wrong with that?
When it doesn't make sense within the story you're writing and is fucking with the characters just to fit and agenda, yes there is something wrong with that.

>>78296556
There are many people who see the ending as perfect so there's that.
And yes really, they changed the characters. It pretty obvious that they did when you consider that season 1 was a standalone story. Bryan is obviously lying since he had no idea it was going to even be a thing before the fans started shipping hard in book 2.

It's even more forced and hamfisted than Makorra and an obvious attempt at attention grapping (which unfortunately worked).

>>78296638
Then make and acceptably gay character. The point is you don't just up and change characters from one moment to the next just because you want to please a group of fans.

Also how can you pretend it wasn't forced? It was literally forced in there in the last couple of minutes. Makorra was forced too ofcourse, but it feel less forced than Korrasami since Korrasami also forced a change in sexuality that wasn't present before.

doing things only to pander to gay people? yes, there is something wrong with that. When you make your characters act some way they never normally would (like asking someone on a date right after her dad was murder), there is something wrong with it.
>>
>>78296968
>bisexuality
Wasn't established at any point in the show. Not even if you like Korrasami can you claim that they ever established bisexuality in any of their characters.

>'the ending was too ambiguous there was no proof they got together!'
The last part with the hand holding is only ambigous in the sense that they could deny it if they really wanted to. In reality it mimick the Atla ending (minus the kiss) and the previous wedding scene. They're also never going to break up for good because Bryke will get ripped to shreds if they do.

You're an idiot if you think it didn't try to mimick ATLAs fairytale ending. And no, handholding on it's own means nothing, but the scene, the music, the light and animation makes it very clear what they're going for.

Not that i like what they where going for. Tbh it just makes it even more obvious pandering.

Why would Korra not act like this? I honestly don't get that.

I totally understand the sentiment that it's not well written or well developed enough (again though, no different than the rest of the show), but when people bring out the 'they were only doing this to pander to [insert group here]!' it gets a little ridiculous. I can't tell if some people are just butthurt because they need to oppose anything even remotely 'tumblrish' or if they're just uncomfortable because gay. Either way, it is what it is, and it's not going to change. It's hard to convey in words how much something like this actually does mean to people if you aren't someone who's affected by it, and if people want to be mad about it forever, so be it, that's your problem. Either like it or you hate it I guess.

THAT'S WHAT BRYKE SAID. "we did it for gay people". Pander.
>>
>>78297186
Because Korra and Asami aren't gay. They're both straight as the show established and conveyed for atleast 2 seasons. Them turning gay in the last second is out of character.

It might not ever change (unfortunately), but lets not pretend they actually did anything for anyone. All the feelings people had were projections because the show never at any point tried to be about sexuality. It can't represent something it never even attemptet to show. I personally don't care about tumblr, i want consistent characters and stories, and for the most part that is true even for LoK. But this ending is completely inconsistent with the rest of the show and the characters and their interactions. And that is why it is shit.

I'm pretty fucking tired of people talking about Korrasami, one way or the other. It's a stupid distraction from the rest of the show. Wow, you don't think it was developed well? That's nice. Talk about one of the better developed themes or fuck off then. Wow, you think it was developed well? Talk about one of the more interested themes or fuck off then. I want people to debate the wisdom of Wu's decision to turn the Earth Empire into a confederation. Will it result in a Chinese Warring States Period thing, a Holy Roman Empire thing, or a United States thing? What about the spread of new technology, like the advanced mecha-suits? Will using spirit vines become morally acceptable or will people respect the spirit world? And that's just a small part of one season! We could talk about a world in which Amon wins or reaches some sort of compromise with benders. ANYTHING BUT FUCKING RELATIONSHIP BULLSHIT. JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT ALREADY.

>>78297330
Didn't the ending and the whole wedding scene take place some time after the war? Also, Korra wanted to take a break from all that and take some time to heal. Bringing someone along who you love = bonus. Actually, you just made a great argument as to why they didn't make it more romantic and less ambiguous. Neither Korra nor Asami was ready for that quite yet, and if they would've kissed, THAT definitely would have felt forced.

> "we did it for gay people". Pander.
I think people use the word pander FAR too freely. If the creators shoved a romance in there because they felt like that's what the fans want, but didn't particularly want it themselves, sure, that would be pandering. But the creators DID want it, and did it even if they were going to get some backlash from homophobic people. And since when is doing something for someone, or a particular group in mind pandering? Are creators supposed to go against EVERYTHING just so they can prove a point? Creators who do that just make themselves seem like assholes imo. There is a balance you can reach. They did a nice thing, and they did it because they wanted to, thank goodness they don't have 4chan's contrarian attitude about everything.

>>
>>78297482
You should do what the story leads to. And in this case it never lead to Korrasami, which makes it forced as fuck. And they did pander, they never intended for Korrasami to be a thing before the fans made it into a thing. So they pandered for progressive points at the very end, hoping that those who didn't like it would forget the last mintues, and that those who did like it would remember it forever. So they did it and it worked, they got recognition despite doing nothing for it, and anyone who didn't like it either moved on or can be disregarded as "homophobes".
>>
>>78297538
What would doing it well mean?

Still confused as to what people are asking for.

Established emotional connection between the two of them reciprocated and decided to embark on a relationship at the end of the show.

They weren't in a relationship but starting on the journey to one.
>>
>>78297451
You kinda have to assume that once Wu declares the monarchy over, a confederation or different regional blocs (at the very least) will naturally replace it. It doesn't necessarily have to be a tight confederation, either.

The real trouble would probably start if and when a state tries to restore the monarchy, but a lot of them might look to the United Republic as an example of how successful democracy can be, especially after living under a totalitarian state for up to three years that was even worse than the monarchy, even if it did bring an end to banditry.
>>

Set it up before hand would be a start. You could also make it a possibility before ending the show on it.

Not doing it would be even better, because you recognize it's a bad choice at the time.
>>
>>78297656
You can't just make the jump from friends to lovers without something to spark it.

Calling Korra and Asami friends in the first place felt forced as fuck.
>>
>>78297482
>Didn't the ending and the whole wedding scene take place some time after the war?
not stated. Perhaps a couple of days. Fact is, Asami is still thinking about her dead father and RC is still destroyed according to the last episode, and Korra asks her on a date. This is ridiculous.

>Korra wanted to take a break from all that and take some time to heal. Bringing someone along who you love = bonus.
way to be selfish, asking the girl that had her father murdered on a date.

>But the creators DID want it
they didn't even have that planned, so i doubt it was "they want it". It's not something they were thinking for a while. It was, as Bryan explained, "we don't have anyone for Korra to end up with, but fans like Korrasami, so we asked Nick if we could do that in S04".

>Are creators supposed to go against EVERYTHING just so they can prove a point?
they are supposed to do the story as they planned beforehand and as they think it will fit better and be more interesting. Korrasami wasn't meant to be interested, or to fit the story. It was just meant for gay people.

sincerely? you're trying too hard to like it. You're not thinking logically. As we were discussing, there is NO buildup, and it was the worst moment possible for a romance. This means that going for a romance is just in the way of the story. Why Korra can't just end alone and learn something? perhaps ending helping rebuild Republic city? perhaps reconnecting with the past lives? or even learning a lesson from her mistakes. Anything could be a better ending than a sudden romance. As i said, Korra might as well end with some random dude and it would make just as much sense.

>>78297656
there is no way for a relationship to happen at that point without being bullshit.
>>
>>78297681
they were literally chaos before Kuvira. It is unlikely a confederation will happen.

more likely, even if they become democracy, they will be small countries and become weak. Somehow, Kuvira was right to take power.
>>
If you knew just how bad Korra would turn out when season 1 ended, would you still want more?
>>
>>78297805
But now there's a bunch of Empire troops throughout the nation to keep the peace while Kuvira is off playing Godzilla and she's 99% likely to keep them in line and work with Wu and Su to keep the nation she loves at peace.

The Earth Empire is fucking huge. You're underestimating how difficult it is to keep such a large amount of territory and people under control, especially as the population increases with advances in public health and agriculture.
>>
>>78297872
>she's 99% likely to keep them in line and work with Wu and Su
Kuvira is in prison, so no.

>The Earth Empire is fucking huge. You're underestimating how difficult it is to keep such a large amount of territory and people under control
exactly. That's why they will probably become small countries, meaning it gets weaker. In other words, they were better with Kuvira or with Wu in power.

S3 and 4 both were way better than 1 and 2. If anything, the show basically got better as it went on, although you could make an argument that S3 was better than S4.

It happened, plenty of notice by those who picked up on it "hetro lens" or not.

Was it deep or expected? No it wasn't because who would have expected such in the track record of kids shows. But it did and I think its fine place to start.
>>

You mean that time when it looked like Asami was gonna straight up kill a bitch?

Korvira would of made more sense as a ship, at least they had more in common than riding the same dick. (Which is literally how they refer to their bond in the show SEVERAL FUCKING TIMES)

>S3 and 4 both were way better than 1 and 2
"i like giant mechas"

c'mon. S03 might be 6/10 or 7/10, but i think S01 is probably the best. Perhaps because of how much potential the show had back then.

and of course, S04 is retarded.

Yeah, Su is going to let her rot there even if she could use her to keep the peace. Because that makes total sense.

>become small countries
Probably, but a confederation doesn't need a federal government in order to count as one. Just treaties affirming certain conditions between the states, like tariff-free trade, free travel, and military alliances, to name a few. Also, freedom is more valuable than power, especially when there's not exactly anyone jumping to take advantage of you. Korra's a very young Avatar and there aren't any militaristic powers in the world like the old Fire Nation or the Earth Empire.

that's... basically what she said.

and i know what a confederation is. I just don't think the rich regions will care about the ones in chaos to do that. I'm not saying NO region will try to get on good terms with one another, i'm saying that most of them will just keep being the same shithole. Earth nation will be half of what it used to be, if it even becomes 'earth nation' again. This means the entire place will be weaker and they were better with Kuvira or Wu in power.

Opinion null and void.

S1 was just wasted potential in a show that were already basically 'Wasted Potential: The Show.'

If anything, S1 was more of a letdown than any other season.

S01 was good simply for showing us Republic city. Say what you want, but RC was well done. Korra also had her reaons to be a piece of shit back then and we could expect character growth. Better than S03 when we are sure that Korra is still the same piece of shit.
>>
>>78298202
Sure, in the heat of the moment. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Kuvira will be imprisoned, but it'd be stupid to think they won't let her out as much as they need to, so long as she goes right back in again. Ultimately, Kuvira loves her nation and would agree. Once that was all over, she'd be in prison again.

>I just don't think
You have a point, Su was a total bitch after all, but ultimately I think Korra would just lean on them until all the weaker states had protections or were incorporated into richer states with some degree of autonomy. Aang and Zuko basically reorganized the Fire Nation and its colonies however the fuck they wanted, so there's no reason to think his reincarnation and the nominal leader of the Earth nation wouldn't do the same. A balance of power could be created and maintained by the Avatar and the other nations.

i don't think they trust her enough to let her out, no matter how much she says she has changed. You're proposing letting her out AND keeping her in charge again of an army after just invading a city. It's just... weird.
>>
>>78298356
>Say what you want, but RC was well done
Not really?

They barely showed much of anything aside from the Equalists, and pro-bending. Should've shown more of the Triads and such.

>Better than S03 when we are sure that Korra is still the same piece of shit.
S3 was when Korra got her comeuppance. But more importantly, it wasn't even just Korra, fucking everybody improved significantly without completely changing their character.

Mako got some depth and became more likeable, less of an asshole for no reason.

Bolin was Bolin but he was funnier, got a new skill, and gained some confidence.

Asami showed off her technological inventiveness and actually grew closer to Korra.

Lin came back and we found out why she became kind of a bitchy, cranky person, although you might argue that we never really needed to see that side or that we never really needed to be introduced to Suyin.

S3 was the point at which LoK became a tolerable watch.

Your better off just watching S1 and pretending it ended there

>>78298466
No, I mean let her out under guard and do propaganda, not meet up with a bunch of officers and tell them specifically what to do. Just have her show up and say, "Listen to Su/Wu/Korra/leader the trio have picked/whoever will keep the peace the best".

>>78298472
I think RC was well-done and they showed enough. Yeah, I wish there was less relationship bullshit and more triads, but it was still well-done.
>>
>>78298472
>They barely showed much of anything aside from the Equalists, and pro-bending. Should've shown more of the Triads and such.
they didn't, but the thing is.. we WANT to see more of it. We know there is much more going on. That's why it is good, there was potential in RC. They just didn't use it.

>it wasn't even just Korra, fucking everybody improved significantly without completely changing their character.
>Korra improved
- "i'm not going to help with the shit i'm resposible for!"
- "helping save people with spirits? screw that, let's teach people this nice new air trick! it sounds more important".
- "how the FUCK you don't want to be an airbender? get back here, you're coming with me!"
- "hey, i have a good plan. I'm going to stop the most dangerous crimminals on earth by myself!"

yeah. She changed so much.

Asami, bolin and Mako had Zero reason to go with Korra. They all had better things to do but Bryke couldn't think of a good reason. Asami should have Korra for S02, but she gives her a fucking zeppeling. What the fuck?

Reminder that it should have been impossible for Kuvira's forces to harvest spirit vines from the Foggy Swamp.
>>
>>78298556
>"Listen to Su/Wu/Korra/leader the trio have picked/whoever will keep the peace the best".
people followed Kuvira because they believed in her, not because she forced them or because they have some obligation. I don't think they will follow anyone else. It will just looks like Kuvira was forced to say that.
>>
>>78298670
>- "helping save people with spirits? screw that, let's teach people this nice new air trick! it sounds more important".
Now hold on. How the fuck was rebuilding the Airbender culture NOT important? It was a pretty big deal on a cultural level, not just for Tenzin, but the world in general, after the FN wiped almost all of them out during the war in A:TLA.

It was practically preventing extinction.
>>

People are more easily fooled by propaganda than you might think, especially before the Information Age.
>>
>>78298764
>How the fuck was rebuilding the Airbender culture NOT important?
why is it important? not only that, why is it more important than saving people?
>>
>>78298799
they had Kuvira defeated and imprisoned. I don't think it will be that easy as to say "oh, now we are all good friends and i'm totally doing this out of free will".
>>
>>78298831
Why would she just let an entire people die out if she had the choice to rebuild it the best that she could?

>why is it more important than saving people?
What are you even talking about? It was pretty much the only thing on her plate at that time iirc
>>
>>78298846
And how many people know exactly how it went down? Like twenty dudes in mecha-suits yards away who only heard Kuvira say "Stand down, it's all good!" and might have caught a glimpse of her in cuffs. Shit's not gonna spread like fire throughout the whole Empire. And even if it did, who are people going to believe at the end of the day, something some soldier told someone who then told someone you know or Kuvira's voice, loud and clear, on the radio? Giving some patriotic speech about how the time for peace is at hand and she's helping restore balance to the world.
>>
>>78298906
>an entire people die
they are already dead. What do you mean "let people die"? again, why is "culture" so important? cultures die all the time. We shouldn't try to rebuild all of them just because they are culture. You fail to point out what value this have, and how is it that taking a bunch of people from the earth nation will rebuild anything.

> It was pretty much the only thing on her plate at that time iirc
spirits fuck shit up all the time. I could give at least 10 examples of spirits fucking shit up in ATLA/LoK. Are you telling me that after throwing a bunch of spirits from the spirit world, things are okay on the rest of the planet? of course not. Not only that, even in RC they were needing a lot of help. In the same fucking episode a building falls and people almost die because of the vines. How is this less important than teaching people an air trick? how many spirits are there fucking with people? we will never know because Korra didn't bother.
>>
>>78299009
It was a pretty big deal to Aang. If you actually watched ATLA or read the comics you'd understand just how much culture is within the avatar world.
>>
>>78299009
Most spirits are peaceful unless provoked.
>>
>>78298959
>And how many people know exactly how it went down?
there was an army there, and they heard Kuvira giving up after a fight. You're telling me the first thing going on their minds will be "oh, it's all cool. We are all friends now"? they will know she got taken prisoner. I think not giving orders for her army after being restrained shows that. And you can be sure that people will believe a soldier that was actually there. She doesn't simply have "soldiers". She have second in command, capitains, this kind of shit that will get answers from the soldiers that were there and then explain to the entire army what happened, and believing people that were there/had a high patent in the army is way more reasonable than believing Kuvira is now friends with RC.

Putting it better: they don't believe in Kuvira's words, they belive in what Kuvira stands for, what she defends. If Kuvira is now saying they have to follow their enemies, they won't do that quietly. They won't jump off a bridge because Kuvira said so.
>>
>>78299126
>It was a pretty big deal to Aang
going to the bathroom is a pretty big deal for me right now. Being important for someone doesn't mean it is important for mankind. Saving people is far more important.

>>78299226
that's not what we see in ATLA and LoK at all. Spirits are either attacking for no good reason or invading RC. Examples: the panda spirit, the douchebag from the rift, Koh, the owl spirit, the mist spirit from LoK, the vine spirit, the spider spirit from LoK, the wolf from mother of faces, the kidnappers from smoke and shadow, etc.

I love this ship, and I feel like there needs to be more representation in tv shows and cartoons and whatnot, but I HATED the way this was just tacked on to the end. It felt so fake and political. Hopefully the comics won't just start of with them making out but actually show how they go from close friends to lovers, because all the show built was a close friendship and not a romance at all.
>>
>>78302469
>and I feel like there needs to be more representation in tv shows and cartoons and whatnot
You know what that's called? TOKENISM.
>>
>>78302502
All romance in tv shows, movies, cartoons, comics etc is dictated by who the writer wants to pair up. The trouble isn't a writer choosing to write a same sex relationship, it's when the writer chooses it then writes it poorly, or in the case of Korrasami, does a good job writing a friendship, but then at the last minute decides "oh by the way, they're totes lesbos!" THAT is tokenism.
>>
I still say that the main reason it happened was to indemnify the ending (and by extension the season and by extension the character writing in general) against people shitting on it for ample reasons.

And it worked, sadly enough.
