First footage of The Legend of Korra Video game by Platinum games
They’re both like, “Fuck relationship issues. Had enough of that in the past.”
Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT…
Beifong teaching the Avatar.
I see you bryankonietzko.
Ha! I didn’t actually come up with this. Mike, Tim, Josh, and Katie named it after me and my propensity for raw vegan smoothies. I’ll have to try this particular recipe, though I will likely throw a banana or two in there.
Yoo Jae-myung, animation director of The Legend of Korra, discusses Nickelodeons initial hesitancy to accept Mike and Bryans proposal of the show… and Korra.
“The sequel focuses on the incarnation of the new Avatar, Korra, as she tries to save a city called the Republic City.”
“So, Korra is a young girl , not a boy. Heroes and protagonists are usually men.”
“That actually became a problem.
Nickelodeon was reluctant to produce this animated series at first because the protagonist was a girl.
I guess you could say that Americans are more conservative than Koreans.
The production was suspended just because the protagonist was a girl.
To compare this situation to a movie production, it’s as if the lead actor has already been cast, but the production agency decides to stop the filming because they don’t approve of the actor.”

You know what?
I’m blaming this. This is why we can’t have nice things. This is why we don’t get the episodes. This is why we don’t get commercials or proper advertising or merchandise. This is still prevalent, they’re still bitter about this, and their utter incompetence and ineptitude when it comes to marketing and promotion could not have POSSIBLY been the genuine reasons for this show’s troubles in the ratings, so it must have been because she’s a girl, so you see “we were right”. That’s all.
This viewpoint will continue until I have a better explanation from the studios. I don’t care if the episodes are on their website when I post this message and jump over to the site, my stance will remain the same. I want an explanation. If you’re not going to give me the product I want to invest in, I want an explanation as to why I can’t have it.
Legend of Korra: Old Wounds: “Metalbending”
Korra has yet to master one element but she is sure ready to learn!
For those of you who can’t view it on nick! [x]
Some things never change…
I just wanted to make a quick post to talk about how I love how genuine Zaheer seems to be when talking to Ikki and Meelo. I never thought he was just sucking up or being manipulative, he just seemed to like talking to them or, in Meelo’s case, be respectful to the little guy. I sorta theorize this is because (as he said) hes been a fan and scholar of airbenders for a long time, he probably has a LOT of respect for original airbenders like Meelo and Ikki. Sure, its definitely creepy to see Ikki discover Zaheer in her dads study in the dark, but the way he tells Ikki about the pendants poem and even says goodnight to her before he fights Kya makes the character seem more human. besides, he seemed to get a lot of happiness from getting to share some knowledge about Guru Laghima to Ikki, as he’s smiling pretty genuinely the whole time, but as soon as Kya walks in his smile goes away and hes immediately scowling a bit and more defensive.
This is something I think book 3 is doing so well at. We have all of the villains having their moment of being relate-able. Whether it be Gazan being uncomfortable around his friends making out, to Ming hua “Showing off” around P’li, these characters all feel like bros and are all relate-able in some way. I don’t know, I just love these villains!
Let’s just stop and take a moment to appreciate the fact that they’ve even animated the fucking pupil light reflex correctly.
(*sigh* I freaking love Legend of Korra…)
my heart still beats for borra I can’t deny it
and I took too long cleaning this up sorry about that
