Bumi’s Role in Book 3, Book 4 Production Update, End of Romantic Arcs and Life after ‘Korra’

The Wall Street Journal released the second half of their interview with Mike & Bryan and it includes a few new Book 3 details along with a bit of Book 4 news as well. Mike was a bit hesitant to give out any more Book 3 news but he did confirm that the next season will include “a lot more Bumi.” In regards to Book 4, the writing is reportedly “pretty much” done meaning the storyline for The Legend of Korra is about to conclude. Of course, we won’t know how the series concludes for another two years.

The next bit of news we received didn’t pertain to any Book specifically, but rather the series in general. I think many of you will be ecstatic to know that Mike & Bryan understand that many people hate the romantic arcs they integrate into the show. More specifically, they know that many fans are “uninterested” in Korra’s love life.

Bryan stated that “[fans] get completely angry when we have fun with the teen romance stuff” and that he’s “going to leave it alone.”

So did the breakup between Mako and Korra signal the end of “teen romance stuff?”

Possibly.

Based on what Bryan said, it looks like the co-creators finally understand the agony fans have gone through with the love triangles and backstabbing. It takes away from the show’s storyline and creates a subplot that many people just don’t care about.

It ruined Mako’s character, it made Asami’s character virtually useless and it almost ruined Korra’s character which would have been detrimental to the show.

My take on this is that Team Avatar should remain friends up until maybe the end – just like The Last Airbender. That way, there’s no interference during the plot and everyone can live happily-ever-after in the end.

If Book 3 drops the teenage romantic arcs, the series will finally reach its full potential.

The last bit of news we received pertains to life after ‘Korra’.

Bryan states, “We definitely don’t have another series planned, but I think this universe that we cracked open 11 years ago, I think it will always draw us back in, throughout the years, and I think it’s still an inspiring place for us to create and we have various other ideas, but we’re really busy just trying to get these episodes done and we’re not actively trying to figure out the next step in this world yet.”

Clearly the co-creators don’t have anything planned for life after ‘Korra’ but they’re not necessarily saying they’ll be done with the Avatar universe once ‘Korra’ concludes. The universe always tends to draw them back in and I wouldn’t be surprised if it draws them back in a third time.

Hopefully if they do create another series, they’ll explore another Avatar before Aang’s time rather than a future Avatar after Korra’s time. That’s just my opinion on that matter.

What’s yours?

  • Iroh

    I think an older avatar would be better

    • Iroh

      maybe even the second avatar the avatar after wan would be interesting

    • Eliminator

      this is a kids / teen show…
      older avatar = older friends = older team avatar = older group of people watch it…
      think about it.

      • Iroh

        im sorry i didn’t mean older as in age wise i meant older in the avatar cycle so an earlier avatar

        • Eliminator

          oh that makes sense! I dont mind another avatar series as long as it is as awesome as LOK is. Only a week ago i watched the finales of book and now i cant wait anymore longer till book 3… Patience sucks!

  • Brendan

    Can’t wait for Book Three!

    I read most of the interview… and I’m already way too excited to wait (!!!).

  • chewgum

    book two is amazing!!!!!!!
    i can’t wait for book 3 and i hope that bryan and mike put on the season some romantic moments…i miss love triangle…:___

  • DigitalBlawks

    I had the best idea for it they make a show on an Earth Kingdom Avatar. The Avatar would be born in the royal family of Ba Sing Se, and is destined to be king and the Avatar and has to go through the struggle of caring for all four nations, but wisely take charge of a single one. This could be a really good idea for a plot because if he tries to bring balance by stopping one nation, he could start a war since he’s technically rules one and he’s causing chaos with another.

    Anyone else agree that’d be a cool idea for a show? King of Ba Sing Se and the Avatar? Imagine how awesome and powerful that could be story-wise.

    • jonas

      I feel like the avatar is always involved with the Royal Families, Roku was best friends with the crown prince, same goes for Aang, Korra is the daughter of the southern chief, related to the northern chief….

      • DigitalBlawks

        But they never are the ruler. The mental conflict of this idea would be so powerful. The Avatar is supposed to unite all four nations but when you rule an entire one, what the hell are you supposed to do am I right?

        • jonas

          his role is to bring balance (being between nations, or between spirits and humans) not to unite the nations. Roku said specifically that the nations were ment to be separate. In the end Aang created Republic City as a solution.
          Honestly I prefer an Avatar that just travels around, regardless of his heritage. The avatar world is so full of life, i feel like we haven’t seen enough so far. Republic city is starting to become repetitive

          • DigitalBlawks

            No I don’t mean unite. But when trying to bring balance to the world and you rule a big chunk of it, another country may just think you’re trying to overthrow them which can lead to war.

  • Loklover

    But I REALLY like the love triangle stuff!! It makes it more interesting imo. I just want mako and Korra to get back together

    • chewgum

      yeah, we would have to do a petition to put on book 3 or 4 love traingle stuff!!!!!!
      TO BRYAN OR MIKE IF THEY READ THIS:
      WE WANT LOVE TRAINGLE STUFF!ahaha:)
      No, seriously…

      • Loklover

        Haha yeea totally!

      • crystalline

        Totally agree! Please someone petition. Its a shame they don’t even respect many other people that actually do enjoy the romantic aspect of the show!

      • Lualia

        Why not right?! So many people want it, lets petition the writers to take out the love triangle with asami, and just make it a light romance between mako and korra.

    • Nombre.

      I am all for Mako and Korra, but please no love triangles especially with Assami

      • chewgum

        No, i’m agree with you NO LOVE TRAINGLE WITH ASAMI!

        • chewgum

          All, but not with asami!

      • KorraKorra

        i agree no love triangles with masami

  • Lena27

    I hope they don’t cut out the romantic angle completely. Airbender had a perfect balance of that, enough to be entertaining and sometimes funny but it was by not means the focus of the episodes. it was just a side thing. I loved the romantic arc in book 1 but book 2 covered all the teenage angst and break up that no one wants to watch. They didn’t go into it too deep in ATLA, why not just keep it like that??
    As for Makorra if they say its done, its done. I kinda knew it before reading this interview, the scene with their breakup in the last episode had an air of finality to it. I loved their relationship in book 1 but I’m fine with it ending. I’m totally ready to see them develop Bumi and hopefully Kya’s character more, maybe Tenzin’s kids too. And most of all, I’m totally ready to learn about Lyn’s past and who her father is (aka who did Toph get with???) lol

    • Nombre.

      Agreed. I don’t want them to get rid of it entirely either, just make it a way smaller part of the story. It only got annoying for me in book 2 for me as well. Now I just kinda wish they wouldn’t have introduced her love life in the first place to only let it end.

      I liked the breakup it showed some personal growth on both parts. But I hoped that when they both matured they’d eventually get back together. I didn’t think they were done for good (probably foolishly and after reading to many hopful tumblr posts) just that they weren’t ready for the relationship and needed time apart to grow and find out who they were. That’s a storyline I’d be happy with.

      • Silvermoon

        Agreed I don’t want the romance to completely end.

  • James

    I personally hope they do drop it between Korra and Mako forever, there’s not always happy endings in real life. She’ll hopefully find someone else, perhaps.

    • Finn

      General Iroh is handsomely single…I was really dissapointed by his lack of appearance this season!

  • Pokefan9150

    YES!! HaHaHa!! No more love-triangles!! Finally, the creators understood how it messed up the characters.

  • Gustavo

    the legend of korra should end with an animated movie

    • Loklover

      OMG I would totally love❤️ that! But I would only see it if it were produced by Mike and Bryan.

      And dear m night shyamalan,
      Pleease….. I’m begging you, DONT make another avatar movie!! It sucked ballz!

  • chewgum

    I would be if mako and korra will be back together, or a new character would fall in love with korra

    • chewgum

      *It would be good

      • Loklover

        If mako and Korra don’t work out….. then in all for either Tahnorra or Korroh!

        • chewgum

          Oh yeah!!!!ahahah:)

  • paul

    It would be REALLY cool if they’d made a 4th book for Avatar: The last airbender. It could be about the life of the gang after the war, what I’m really interested in.

    • Loklover

      That would be awesome!

      • paul

        I even thought about it before korra :)

        • Loklover

          Haha. I really don’t like reading the comics…. I wish that they just made the search(all three parts) into a fourth season of Atla

          • Paul A

            Yea, I agree. But I already read them so no point in that for me xd

          • Loklover

            Yea me too but it’s more appealing to the eyes when it’s on tv. Haha

          • paul

            that’s true

  • Loklover

    But seriously guys, I have nothing and I mean NOTHING to watch anymore! Lok is the ONLY show that I really really LOVE

    • paul

      where did you find the case? ;o
      (I can’ t see it)

    • Loklover

      Wtf! Where’s the picture?!?! Sorry guys it didn’t show up. I’ll try again

    • Loklover

      Maan… I bought a phone case with the waterbending scroll on the back and then they took it down. :( Now this what they have. They also have a firebending, earthbending, and airbending one too.

      • Loklover

        If you cant see the pic… go to etsy.com and type in “avatar the last airbender phone case.” Once you do that then you should see what im talking about.

      • Katherine M.

        “The illustrations are quite stylish.”

  • Loklover

    This came out a while ago but I assume that its from Book 3.

    • Loklover

      ugh…. I should just stop trying to post pictures. it never comes up!! haha

      • Nombre.

        I see it :) Thanks for posting! Looks interesting. If its from book 3 then its good to see team avatar together in the same room and Jinora. She deserves more screen time.

    • Daniel A

      I love that picture. It’s so nice seeing Team Avatar taking some time to sit down, eat, and enjoy each other’s company. They really haven’t had time to do any of that because of all this plot.

    • Katherine M.

      Korra looks confused or surprised and Asami has her arms crossed and a stern posture. Bolin is being Bolin. It looks interesting, and I don’t think it’ll end too well.

      • Legama

        isnt this the scene where they discover Bumi is an Airbender?

  • Loklover

    Found this on tumblr, the first four episode titles. I don’t know if it’s real or not. It’s most likely fake tho

    • Daniel A

      Never seen this before but it seems fake. “The Earth Queen” probably refers to the female “bad girl” bender Grey Delisle voices, but her being an earth queen is just a rumor that blew up.

      The “Zuko” and “Acceptance” thing probably refer to finding out about Zuko’s mom, and then Zuko accepting what happened to her. Just fandom nonsense.

      The only one that’s realistic is the first one based on what we know so far.

      • Muggle

        No, “The Earth Queen” would refer to the actual Queen of the Earth Kingdom. Bryan mentioned her before in response to a fan who was upset that there weren’t many female leaders, and we didn’t see the one that we knew was there.

        I’m disappointed that it’s not real since I’ve really wanted to see Zuko.

        • Daniel A

          Oh, thanks for pointing that out. I thought it came from a combination of the Grey Delisle thing and people wanting to see a villain that bends an element beside water. That’s cool, though. I wonder if she’s related to Kuei in any way.

          I know, I was really hoping we’d get to see Zuko in Book 2. Instead we got some woman who kinda possibly maybe resembles Azula…? Hopefully he’ll show up in Book 3. Maybe he has some spiritual knowledge by now that could become useful now that Korra left the portals open.

    • Katherine M.

      Bryan Konietzko posted this on his tumblr. The symbol for change is completely different from the one in the above picture.

  • Sibis

    Mike and Bryan understand now how bad their flagship romance was. Well, they just aren’t that good at romance in the forefront when they put to much priority in it. Doesn’t work when it’s the same bad love triangle formula for two books.

    Asami is not on an even level compared to Mako and Korra.

    Eska and Bolin was good as that was unique.

    Bolin and Ginger was just him throwing himself on Ginger until she says, “Yes.”

  • crystalline

    I seriously will love this show soooooooo much LESS if they completely take out all the romance. Although it takes away slightly from the main plot, it still makes a show that much more appealing. I actually really enjoy romance in a series and hearing they may completely drop it has ruined my anticipation for the rest of the show. I can’t believe they basically disregarded the many people who actually do enjoy the romantic element of the show. I don’t understand why they cant just make the romance more like in ATLA, where the just hinted and played slightly with the romance between Katara and Aang and Suki and Sokka and what not. It wasn’t overbearing and at the same time it wasn’t too little. This makes me really upset. I actually kind of enjoyed that Mako and Korra were together. Even though the love triangle got annoying at times and made me start to dislike some of the characters in a way, I loved the tension because I like to see how it gets resolved, because we all know it will be! Ugh, cannot believe they are doing this. I really cant express enough how upset this information has made me and I almost wish I never read this. As interesting and exciting as the fighting and adventure is in this show, this show will be pretty boring to me if there is no romance at all. At least they should let the characters have a love life outside of Team Avatar, that would ease a lot of the tension and create more room for the main plot to develop. If everything is happy, then we wont have to worry about all this drama and the show can go on. This is just sad……. Can Korra at least get with Iroh or Tahno, there is nothing wrong with them!

    • Name

      I agree! I am a bit disapointed. Except the romance isn’t the most important part for me, but its still a part I enjoy. Not so much in book 2 tho and I can see why so many ppl were put off by it. They could have just scaled it back and made it subtle instead of getting rid of it all together. I also found it interesting that they didn’t seem to take into account the people who do like the romance elements.

    • Michelle M.

      I’m really pissed about this too. I just want my Makorra, man *starts to sob* That’s really all I want as far as romance!… I-Idk how or-or when they would get back together… but all I know is-is I need them baaaaack! D; No but seriously, a lot of people –especially Makorra shippers who still have hope– will be very angry about this. They should have romance, but just not the love triangles! It was fine that Makorra broke up that first time, but when they put Asami in there, it made me want to flip a table. There probably shouldn’t be any romance in book 3 but in book 4 they need to find a way to include some. It’s just something this series always had! And you have to admit, it’s fun shipping the characters. What’s not fun is the drama, and Bryke blatantly put drama in there which is a major “no, no”

      • crystalline

        Yea. I still believe they will get back together by the end of Book 4. I am very certain that those frogs in The Guide I think symbolized the two and their relationship so I am sure we will get what we want eventually, but I will in no way enjoy the long wait.

        • Eliminator

          Nice to see, that I am not the only one being shocked about this interview :) but i think, they were misunderstood… i have not read anything in the interview, that gives an absolute statement for cutting out romance?!

      • KorraKorra

        Makorra Forever

    • Sibis

      Romance is okay, just that their approach of bringing back the same love triangle is what got it so messed up. The fact that it was the same love triangle made it predictable at points. We generally knew Mako was going to toss Asami aside for Korra again.

      What could have resolved in episode 11 was dragged out all the way to the last part of the finale. All part of Korra losing her memory, convenient. Mako once again thinks lying is the best way to go about in a relationship.

      • crystalline

        Yea Mako just needs to get his act together. It is really annoying that they revisited the love triangle again! And im sure Asami and Mako wont last long and Korra will be back in the picture. I agree, they should have let it be after Korra and Mako broke up and just let them be friends until they mature and can be together again and be happy.

        • Sibis

          So far the show has proven that it doesn’t work for Mako either way with Asami and Korra.

          Mako broke up with Korra. So he can just go back to Asami then he’ll be back with Korra.

          Seems rather silly.

          There should be new characters for those three to meet new people rather than doing the same three way tango over and over.

          • Eliminator

            there won’t be new characters, which play a large role in the next 2 books. IMO Team Avatar (Korra, Mako, Bolin, [Asami], Tenzin) will still have the biggest attention. That’s fine, I like them all , except Asami :p

          • crystalline

            Agreed, but I wish there were new characters, or they give older characters, like Tahno and Iroh, a larger role in the upcoming books.

  • Pablo09

    The love scenes aren’t that bad. And they’re very few, I don’t understand why that much of hate.

  • Monk Gyatso

    Hey, so I just came up with a possible time span of ATLA, and worked it into a viewing schedule to watch as “things might have taken place.”

    Come look at it and let me know what you think:

    http://airbendinglessons.blogspot.com/2013/11/avatar-viewing-schedule_17.html

    It is something to do while we wait for book 3

  • PRATN

    I say if they go back in and do another TV show, do one AFTER Korra so we can further see the show further evolve.

    Anything pertaining with the past can be left with one-off specials or guide books.

    • crystalline

      Agreed. I would like to see how things keep getting more and more complicated as time progresses. I am too worried about what happened in the past, it cannot be that significant if everything is fairly smooth now.

      • crystalline

        *not too worried

  • Ariana Moreno

    Hmmmm, I can see where the creators are coming from, but is it necessary to remove all possibilities of love interests? I mean, for me it should be balanced. Yeah, they don’t have to make the series revolve around love interests, but at least include a little bit of them or hints of them like they did with atla. I don’t know. I think a good balance of romance in the show would add some spice to it, or drama. They don’t have to make it focused on that completely, but don’t take it all away either.

    • Pokefan9150

      Even though I hate shipping, you’re kind of right, a balanced romance arc can indeed make the characters look more humane. However, what went wrong in my opinion is the fact that the creators rushed it too early. Before we can even like Mako as a character they made him cheat on Asami by kissing Korra back in Book 1. Seeing the protagonist involved with someone that has that kind of behavior is kind of frustrating. Don’t get me wrong on this, but aside from girls not a lot of people like Mako. So, if they established more interest into the characters before making them love eachother there would have been no problem with the romance, or Makorra itself.

      • Ariana Moreno

        I agree. Though, not all girls like mako either haha, I’m a girl and I can’t stand the guy. But yeah. It does kind of seem like the love interest thing was rushed too quickly. Maybe if they had established each of the characters first and took the romance thing slowly it would’ve been perfect. But yeah, still think they should leave hints of it in there at least, instead of getting rid of it completely. Even though they feel like fans are pissed a lot about it, I think they should still decide what happens in the end. It seems like they’re letting some people control what happens in the plot because they see that a lot of fans were angry about the romance thing, so now they’re basing their decisions of of what fans think. Yes, I would probably do the same if I created something people didn’t like, but on the same token, it’s my idea and if people don’t like it, they don’t have to watch it. They said it ruined mako’s character, made assami look useless, and almost ruined korra’s character. That’s what they claim. They say it takes away from the plot, but all in all, a balance with romance is all they need.

        • Pokefan9150

          Well, it’s kind of true. It did ruin characters, try to find another role for Mako except being a “lover-boy”, his only second role was to play “Sherlock Holmes” for something that wasn’t even a little relevant for the plot. Asami, is kind of useless and is just a pawn used for love interests, and as for Korra, everyone adored her in Book 1 until Chapter 5 when she kissed Mako knowing he has a girlfriend. I get the fact they want to make Korra have a normal teenage life aside from being this demi-god, but it doesn’t have to be in a complicated love triangle. Characters of LOK are already weak enough (in terms of design, they have weak backstories, no drives/goals/dreams and nothing interesting about them like ATLA characters) putting them in such a controversial circumstance can hinder what viewers will think about them. Anyways, nice to discuss with you again.

          • Ariana Moreno

            I see what you’re saying. All of that stuff you mentioned was probably designed to illustrate the teenage aspect of korra and everyone else, because they felt it would be more relatable with the fans. When it comes to the dreams and backgrounds of the characters and all that, it seems like they have so much to get through in so little time. Maybe they thought they would focus more on korra and her goals, since she’s the main character. But who knows, maybe things will get a little more interesting. Maybe things aren’t what they seem so far. Haha but I just know that I can’t wait for book 3 to come out! Yes, you as well, nice discussing once again. I’m sure we’ll end up meeting on another article again soon.

          • Pokefan9150

            I fucking love Korra and never had a problem with her. She’s an interesting character. But, the rest of her team seriously needs better design and development ASAP, I mean… we’re half through the show, Korra and Tenzin developed so well, but Mako, Bolin and Asami are still at square one.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Woah haha okay I believe you haha. XD And yeah, maybe book 3 and 4 will give the others their chance to ”shine”

          • Pokefan9150

            Believe? Believe what?

          • Ariana Moreno

            I believe you when you say you love korra haha

          • Pokefan9150

            Oh. I’m just stubborn about it since she has received so much negative response by fans when her behavior is perfectly justified and clear.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yessssss!!! I agree! Thank you! I see people criticizing and insulting her nonstop about every little thing she does, just because they don’t like it or they don’t think it’s justified! I’m thinking, really? You’re crazy! I even see comments about her like “korra is the worst avatar ever” and stuff like “she a f*** let down of an avatar. I’m thinking, really?!! You are crazy!!! Poor Korra. I think she deserves a lot of praise for the things she does! Okay, maybe she isn’t perfect, but who is? She’s a teenage girl for goodness sakes! She’s still growing and learning! Like someone wise said, “just because she’s the avatar doesn’t mean she’s ready or perfect because she’s still learning!” People are haters. I think she’s amazing, despite that she may make mistakes at times. because of the fact that she is the main hero of the show and she isn’t perfect, makes it more realistic! i mean how boring and uninteresting would it be if Korra was perfect and had nothing wrong!? It’s more realistic when the hero themselves has a thing or to to work on!

          • Pokefan9150

            She’s been tolerating Tenzin’s conservative teaching for 6 months. Then, she learns he and her father lied to her and kept her away from the world all her life. Aang was 12 and traveled the world in time of war without adult supervision, how is she supposed to feel after that. No one ever trusts her, Mako betrayed her (well, kind of) in Republic City by putting his stupid job over his girlriend the AVATAR Korra. I mean, can’t she feel a tad bit of anger. Hell, even Aang would get angry.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Exactly! Seriously, it wouldn’t be so easy to criticize Korra if they were in her shoes. Then the behavior would be justified wouldn’t it? Not to mention her own uncle trying to kill her and harm her family! I’m also sure being the avatar is so stressful. Korra was facing a lot of pressure from everyone around her! The whole world depends on her, and if one thing goes wrong, she gets crap from everyone. An example would be how that girl threw snow at her and told her she was the worst avatar ever. Her family was also a huge thing on her plate. There’s countless other examples I’m sure

          • Pokefan9150

            I always thought Korra is the most relatable character in the whole series (both ATLA and LOK). What teenager nowadays doesn’t get upset when things don’t operate their way, what teenager doesn’t want everything to happen immediately? If people stopped comparing her to Aang (which was raised by monks meaning he’s an exception to have so much patience and wisdom) they would see how great Korra us and how strong she is.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yes! You are absolutely right! I agree! That’s what i was talking about when I saw that people kept comparing her to aang and that was getting on my nerves. She’s her own person! She’s different! More realistic and relatable for that matter. Making comparisons is something in life that tends to be useless and only seems to be harmful. But yes, you are very right. I mean even avatar Wan was reckless and immature at the beginning, and it took him some time to mature and grow. No avatar is going to take on their role in the same way or style. They are also going to have different weaknesses and struggles to overcome. They will also be gifted differently whether it’d be physically, emotionally, mentally. People should be more open minded. It’s even explained that Korra is the opposite in aang, in which she has the physical aspect of bending down, but her spirituality was very weak. for aang, he was more patient and wise, and spiritual, but he couldn’t get the physical aspect of bending right away. They are opposites! It’s even explained! I don’t understand some of the things people say sometimes

          • Pokefan9150

            You bring up some excellent points. Wan is like Korra, reckless at first but revolutionary at the end (They both created different spiritual eras, that’s not a small detail that should be forgotten.) Also, you said some are gifted differently, I couldn’t say it any better. Aang was weak physically at first but very strong mentally and spiritually from the beginning. Korra is bursting with power in the beginning and she’s now learning to master her spiritual self. That’s the whole point of the show, the creators even said from the beginning that Korra is definitely and completely the opposite of Aang, that’s the purpose. So, I don’t understand people when they say Korra is failing or a bad avatar. There’s 2 other seasons left, what’s the point if she masters everything halfway through?

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yes! You got it! And what? Are you saying it’s expected that she still has room to learn since there are 2 seasons left? Sorry, I’m tying to make sure I understand what you mean XD

          • Pokefan9150

            I’m trying to say that Korra can still develop a lot. Look at Aang, he became a true avatar only at the last episode of his series. Look at its title “Avatar Aang”. The same will happen with Korra. What’s the point of having two more seasons if she becomes perfect halfway through the series. It’s no fun to watch someone succeed all the time. So, in brief, what I’m trying to say is haters hate on Korra because she still isn’t perfect and has some flaws. But, this is something normal since we’re watching a show where Korra develops throughout the series. So they’re hating on something that is completely normal and they’re giving themselves a reason to hate the show for nothing.
            Hope it helped haha

          • Ariana Moreno

            Oh yeah that helped haha thanks. And yes! I agree with everything you’re saying. You are right! People just need to really think about it and appreciate Korra for what it is and stop complaining about something it isn’t! I am grateful for the show, and I’m happy for the creators and all they do! It isn’t easy doing what they do! They work hard and they use their creative imaginations to bring us awesome entertainment! We should just be grateful! Sure, there is always room for improvement, but when isn’t there for anything? People should just appreciate Korra for all the good things it brings to the table.

          • Pokefan9150

            Exactly, in the end it’s a show made for entertainment. It’s better to enjoy it rather than hating it. Although, I love discussing and arguing aspects of the show. Thanks, and I will meet you in another article! :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            Well put!! I agree :) thank you and yes!

          • Pokefan9150

            Hey, I’m bored want to discuss The Legend of Korra… :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yo!! Sure! Whatcha wanna talk about?? I’m up for anything :)

          • Pokefan9150

            Alright! Umm… let’s see… Well, we could talk about Book 3 (predictions and speculation), we could talk about the best shippings (if it is in your interest), we could talk about the subelement of airbending, or thoughts on the new spiritual era or compare old and new characters, anything you want :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            Those all sound great! Well, I really am hoping for some good drama in book 3. You know that villain everyone is talking about? The supposedly water bender girl who is voiced by Grey D? Well, it’d be pretty sweet if she became very close with korra, and in the end turned out to be someone with bad intentions. It would be cool if korra had to choose either between this character’s life, or the whole world’s. So it would be cool to me if this character’s existence endangered everyone else’s whether it be because of the character’s deliberate evil intentions, or just her existence being a danger to everyone, and korra would be in a dilemma…either save her close friend, or save the world. I don’t know, it’s completely random and weird, but I hope korra will definitely be dealing with a female villain this time, and if not, a rival. it’d be pretty sweet. Shipping wise you are gonna think I’m weird, but I adore Korra and Wan together. They are alike in so many ways, and they just look adorable together! Haha i know it will never happen, because people would probably see it as her technically dating her past self haha but it’s just an idea…

          • Pokefan9150

            Korra and a rival… This just sounds awesome! Especially that Korra is hot-headed and doesn’t really like defeat. This form of conflict would build tension and suspense all along the season. This is why I like discussing The Legend of Korra with you, you get what’s good about the show and what makes it good. As for Wan and Korra as a couple (forget the fact that they’re past lives for now) it sounds like a compatible couple, waaaayyy more than Korra and Mako. The only reason people ship them together is because they look beautiful together yet they are definitely not alike. Wan is also rash and dynamic like Korra. Grey Delisle voicing the next villain? Great! Though I really hope the next villain is not a waterbender, it’s been two seasons already, I want an Earthbending villain or nonbender. Another thing I’m hoping is that Korra and Asami become better friends, they looked good together (not in a relationship way) in Chapter 7 of Book 1 when they were racing. It’s just sad they’re kind of distancing themselves because of a douchebag like Mako that basically uses them.

          • Ariana Moreno

            yayyyyyyyyy! Dude thank you!! And yes you too! You know what’s up when it comes to Korra! And you know, i hate to give you the bad news but it is supposed to be a water bender again, you and i think alike! i totally agree about the villain being an earth bender!!! but yea. I love your ideas too! Korra and Asami should totally grow closer in book 3! and yes! Chicks over dicks all the way man! I think asami should dump mako and he should get a taste of his own medicine.

          • Ariana Moreno

            You know what else I thought would be interesting? If someone in team avatar went bad…maybe asami? she gets crap from everyone even though she’s one of the nicest people ever. She should snap or something

          • Pokefan9150

            Chicks over dicks xD The female version of bros before hoes. I love it! Feels great talking with someone that gets what you say and that actually thinks the show through instead of just just liking it for the sake that it’s Avatar. Look how Katara and Toph had some great bonding time together and worked their differences and appreciated themselves.Korra and Asami actually have a lot in common, they’re both independent, they’re physically strong and a can make a kick-ass fighting team, or racing team. I just hope Mako pulls out a Zuko and becomes likeable because I’m not comfortable with the idea of hating a main character especially if there’s a chance he’ll end up with Korra, which is one of my most favorite characters.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Good point. Good point. and thanks! Me too. I mean I honestly don’t like mako, so hopefully book 3 will change my mind. But yes Korra is my all time favorite!!! look at my comment below, cause i made another comment about asami. what about you?? what do you think?

          • Pokefan9150

            I can’t seem to find it :( Can you copy-paste it in a new reply? I want to read what you said about Asami :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            You know what else I thought would be interesting? If someone in team avatar went bad…maybe asami? she gets crap from everyone even though she’s one of the nicest people ever. She should snap or something (there you go haha XD)

          • Pokefan9150

            You have no idea how many times I’ve been thinking about this. I really feel bad for Asami, she’s putting her life on the line for Korra, Mako and Bolin (and we all know it’s mostly for Mako’s sake) and she doesn’t get anything in return. She must have a strong heart for containing all of the betrayals she keeps getting. You know… if she were to become a villain I’d be on her side. :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yes!!! Everything you’re saying is what I think! Really? Hm, that’d be interesting…but what about Korra? What if it came down to Korra and Her fighting/battling?

          • Pokefan9150

            Hmm… I really love Korra too. But, Asami has went through so much. I’ll tell you this… If Asami poses a threat and Korra would at least consider their friendship, all the help Asami has given to her and try to resolve this peacefully until she would be forced to resort to violence I will side on Korra. However, if Korra is just like “Asami’s no one and since she poses a threat I’ll put her down in an instant with a few fireblasts” I’ll definitely side with Asami and hope she would for once get something her way.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Hm, okay, okay. I see. So, what are your thoughts on book 3? By that I mean who do you ship? Have predictions? Preferences? I feel like I’ve been blabbing haha.

          • Pokefan9150

            Blabbing? Well, Book 3 focuses on Earthbending and Lin (which sounds so freaking awesome.) Lin is one hell of a character, she’s funny and very, very strong. We’re going to re-visit Ba Sing Se! Sounds interesting, I wonder if the Dai Lee is still in operation and if Ba sing Se is as technologically advanced as Republic City. Korra has matured a lot, so I can’t wait to see how she will handle things from now on. And I wonder if Bolin is going to have anew love interest. o.O

          • Ariana Moreno

            Yes! I couldn’t say any of that any better haha! Yeah, hm, Bolin…Oh Bolin…I think he and Mako just need to learn how to be the right person before they find the right person for them. Bolin is too immature and obsessed with being with someone. I feel like he just wanted a girl friend for the sake of being with someone. You know how people will just choose the first person they see available for the heck of saying they have a partner? I feel like at first that was bolin’s goal with eska. It’s like she was his rebound after seeing that korra was taken by mako. As for mako, it was so annoying, him not having any respect or consideration for korra’s and asami’s feelings. he is definitely a user and cheater. He needs to do some more growing before he’s ready for a girl friend, and like i said, bolin can do some growing too. Korra, also could work on her anger a little more, but we’ll see what happens

          • Pokefan9150

            You’re spot-on. It’s like you’re reading my mind. Are you a psychic? Mako and Bolin definitely need to learn who they are before looking for a partner that requires loyalty, attention and commitment. To be honest, I’m gonna miss angry Korra, she’s jus so awesome when she’s ready to kick anyone’s ass. When she kicked Mako’s desk with an airbending kick you should’ve seen my reaction, I was amazed how Korra’s frustration can lead her to such badassness. xD (Well, maybe I’m the only one who thought her airbending kick was awesome) Although, I’m very eager to see her new matured behavior.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Oh heck yeah!! Oh yeah man! I was just hoping instead of the desk she would’ve got mako! I agree with everything you’re saying! You are psychic too! sorry brb

          • Ariana Moreno

            i’ll tty later tonight! gtg for now

          • Pokefan9150

            Nah, it’s cool take your time :) Oohoh yeah, if she would’ve kicked Mako’s ass it would’ve made my day. We all know Korra can easily pound Mako into a grave without breaking a sweat. You know.. Now that humans can enter the Spirit World, I was thinking they should pay Uncle Iroh a visit so that they can gain wisdom and learn about their true selves and their true potential (if they ever have any xD)

          • Ariana Moreno

            haha yeah man I agree with yaaaaa! XD we need to see them get some good knowledge yo! it’s like mako goes to iroh and says, old wise one, how does one stop being an asswhole?? XD

          • Pokefan9150

            Iroh would teach him well, he is so nice and knowledgeable that even HE can turn Mako into a likeable character. As for Bolin, I’d be wrong to say he’s bad, he’s quite funny and a good fighter when he gets serious. However, he only needs to get a better role than simply being a comic relief. Look at Soka, he was a comic relief but he was a great leader and without him Aang and the rest would be totally lost. Korra can save the world without Bolin. Aang could have not saved the world without Soka.

          • Ariana Moreno

            couldn’t have said it better! :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            So, I will take a look at the video you created and I’ll be sure to give you my thoughts!! :)

          • Pokefan9150

            Thanks!

          • Ariana Moreno

            Btw, is there anything else on your mind that you would like to talk about? Anything that bugs you? Or makes you happy? or just plain what ever? I’m here if you wanna talk :p whether it be about our favorite show, or something random

          • Pokefan9150

            Well, hmm… I’mcurrently addicted to Breaking Bad so we could talk about that yet again I’m only at season 3 so far and I want to talk about something you’re interested in. Well, tell me do you like other shows, animes or videogames?

          • Ariana Moreno

            Well, that’s pretty nice! I personally didn’t get into it, but I completely understand where you’re coming from because it’s like the most popular thing on tv. My brother is addicted to all that kind of stuff so XD yeah. I understand! I like other animes like naruto, hetalia, fruits basket, romeo X Juliet, princess mononoke, spirited away, a bride’s story, it wasn’t too much of an anime, but teen titans, I liked the girl who leapt through time, I like fighting games like super smash bros brawl and melee, naruto fighting games, (I have all kinds) Mario kart, super Mario sunshine, animal crossing, and that’s all I can think of for the moment. oh this is kind of bringing back the other subject of korra, but I just adore Noatak when he’s a child. When he’s an older teen I think he is so hot XD sorry just had to get that out of my system. anyway, carry on with what your interests are haha oh and I love cartoons and Disney movies! I like all the older cartoons like rockos modern life, angry beavers, my life as a teenage robot, catdog, hey Arnold,

          • Pokefan9150

            Teen Noatok looks like a male version of Korra. So that makes Korra hot as well xD I’ve seen a couple of animes as well like Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, Fairy Tail, Sworad Art Online, Death Note, and the rest I can’t remember. My favorite show of all time is definitely Avatar The Last Airbender. The amazing mix of Eastern and Western worlds with philosophies coming ffrom Taoism and bending forms coming from real world Martial Arts. I just love Avatar!! As fofr videogames, I like Pokemon, all variants of Mario games, Super Smash is definitely on my favorite list, Harvest Moon, League of Legends, I can’t think of anything else for now, so many games xD. Movies? Umm, The Expendables, Ted, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Angels and Demons, Rush Hour, also too many I can’t remember.

          • Ariana Moreno

            yeaaah! you have good taste! haha and you think so? Korra is beautiful, but I think Noatak is still like the hottest guy in Korra if I were honest. As a teen at least haha. But yes! You have good taste! I also forgot pokemon is another anime I am obsessed with! And your video: HOLY.CRAP. THAT WAS SO AMAZING!! I’m not just saying that! You’re editing and choice of music is amazing! You also captured a lot of the most action packed moments in both alta and Korra! Very talented. You are gifted :) thank you! I also think it’s variety of the moments captured give people who are curious about both shows a little bit of a sneak peak of both, without spoiling anything. PERFECT

          • Pokefan9150

            That means a lot thanks a lot! ^^ Pokemon, I love this anime!! I still re-visit it almost everyday. My favorite moments are from the first to the generation (meaning Kanto to Sinnoh). As for Korra, she’s naturally beautiful, meaning she doesn’t need to even try to look beautiful yet she does. As for Noatok, I admit he looks clean, proper, athletic and strong. Which means you have great taste yourself! :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            No problem! it’s the truth! and thanks! yes, I love first generation pokemon too! I watch all that stuff all the time!! brings back childhood memories! So, who do you think is the most attractive in Korra? just curious haha

          • Pokefan9150

            Is there any way we can also chat? It’s kind of inconvenient on this blog

          • Ariana Moreno

            yes! have a facebook?? sorry about that, I didn’t see yout reply till now haha my bad I’m sorry. facebook or something?

          • Pokefan9150

            I don’t know… I mean, I don’t want to make it weird for you. We are on the Internet and all. If you’re comfortable with it, sure. As long as you’re fine with it.

          • Ariana Moreno

            I guess you bring up a good point. I don’t know either haha. I mean nothing against you but you’re right

          • Pokefan9150

            Sorry I had to go to the bathroom. xD Anyways, I don’t mind if you don’t. It’s just for making chatting more convenient.

          • Ariana Moreno

            np. yeah haha I mean I’m sorry if this is inconvenient for you. Are you a girl? I was curious this whole time haha I didn’t wanna assume anything

          • Pokefan9150

            No, I’m a guy. That’s why I kind of feel weird asking for this. I hate making other people feel awkward. xD I just want you to feel comfortable as well.

          • Ariana Moreno

            No problem! I appreciate your consideration and everything. I understand haha. Thanks. So, if you’re a guy, who is the hottest person in Korra in your opinion haha

          • Pokefan9150

            I definitely think it’s Korra. She’s tall, athletic, she has beautiful hair both when tied and untied. Her skin color ads spice to her beauty (sounds weird but best way I can put it xD). What I like about her as a person and not avatar? She’s honest, meaning she doesn’t act as someone else to catch attention, she doesn’t spend her time shopping for clothes or doing “girly” stuff for, again, seeking attention. You’re a good example as well, you play videogames and like anime, you’re not scared of admitting it because you’re an honest person, same goes for Korra. She likes to have fun, she eats in a normal way, recall her date with Bolin. She’d eat her noodles just like Naruto, or Goku. She’d burp, she’d act like a real human being instead of acting snobby for attention. She prefers having fun with her date rather then just trying to be intimate and cuddle (Compare Masami’s date and Borra’s date and you’ll get what I’m saying :) ).

          • Ariana Moreno

            That’s awesome! Yeah exactly! That’s why I said that I can relate to Korra as a sister even! She reminds me of me. Well said :) it’s awesome when guys don’t always go for the snobby prissy girls

          • Pokefan9150

            I can’t stand snobby girls, I’m always in conflict with them. If you relate to Korra, then you’re awesome as well, and you’d be one hell of an Avatar. Honesty is what a value the most and what snobby girls value the less.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Thanks for saying that! Yeah man! me too! Snobby girls make me sick. I cant stand them either! I feel like they make girls look bad. We need more people like korra around here! I am always the tomboyish one when I’m with my friends, so it’d be nice to have more people who are like me to hang with, but honesty is a very important quality! I agree. ;)

          • Pokefan9150

            You completed my thought! Tomboyish girls. God’s gift to guys. For me, no, fact is tomboy girls = girls who get honesty and its value the most. Why? because they act like they feel like, they do whatever THEY like not because it’ll make them have the biggest crowd of boys around them. Andas for Korra, the more of her the merrier xD. Also, I think that’s why people hate Korra, because she’s not acting to be the likeable cute girl, she’s acting like the badass fighter she is, and if people don’t like it, they gotta deal with!!!

          • Ariana Moreno

            yes yes yes yes yes!! You are very bright you know that?! Seriously!! And because of the fact that Korra isn’t like those sissy girls who are obsessed with nails, boys, and makeup and crap, she is awesome! Because the show’s main character is a tough, head strong, hot headed tomboyish girl who doesn’t back down from a fight no matter who it’s against, that’s what made me get into it! I loved that there was a show out there with a character who I could relate to perfectly!!! yes! I was so happy! I thought finally, someone I can relate to and feel the same things she feels! it’s amazing! I love the creators for doing that! You are awesome! Glad we agree on these things! XD and just like korra says, to all those out there who wish other wise, “I’m the avatar and you gotta deal with it!” That’s why I adore Korra and she’s my favorite!!

          • Ariana Moreno

            Cool beans, cool beans Xp

          • Pokefan9150

            Thank you, very much. Your compliments are very flattering. Oh, and YOU’RE awesome!!! You use your mind to understand why you like the show instead of liking for the sake that it’s part of Avatar The Last Airbender. And, yes! Korra is herself. That’s what’s important to me. She’s true to herself. How can her haters not admire that? Now, I’m a big fan of Shaolin Monks, and since Aang and all the airbenders are inspired from their culture I really like Aang. I like it how wise he is and how he can channel anger into forgiveness and how strong he is in face of danger. But to hate Korra just for being different? That’s sheer stupidity. I’m just happy that Korra isn’t perfect and represents a strong female character that can inspire other girls to be as awesome as her and you! :p

          • Ariana Moreno

            Dude thanks! that’s nice of you to say! :) and yeah, people just want the same boring unordinary sissy girls, and because korra is different, people automatically think that she’s not worth it. but really. not every girl is the same, and it’s awesome that they made korra different! it makes it more interesting! and even honest too like you were saying! I mean does every girl really like makeup and boys and nails and stuff? I don’t care about any those things, so why would you want the same type of unoriginal female character that they have in a lot of other shows too?! it’s just plain simple. Korra is amazing in many ways and if people can’t see that, then they are missing out, and maybe they should get their priorities about what they expect from others to be like in the real world, straight as well. that’s what the media teaches and brainwashes us into believing: if you don’t look a certain way, act a certain way, or do anything a certain way for that matter, you are inferior or not worth it. the media is the biggest myth maker in the world and I can’t stand it. it brainwashes us into believing false things about not only us, but the world, and how society should be when in fact, it shouldn’t be that way.

          • Pokefan9150

            One of the guess that I would take is that The Legend of Korra’s fandom is mostly constructed by anime fans. And anime is famous for sexualizing women by giving them unrealistic body proportions. However, The Legend of Korra doesn’t depict women of that sort, and that’s why most of its fandom isn’t used to this. And you couldn’t be more spot-on about what you said about the media. Just look at today’s idols, a complete disgrace because of these sluts acting like they’re something important or revolutionary. You’re like a hidden gem, stay like you are :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            Like I said, you are very bright and you know what’s up!! I agree with everything you’re saying and I couldn’t word it any better! Thank you so much! You know, you are also God’s gift to the guys in society because you could educate them about everything you’re saying to me! You could open their eyes and help them to see more of what’s truthful in society, and not an illusion! Thank you! talk to you soon!

          • Pokefan9150

            Thanks to you. See you soon as well!

          • Pokefan9150

            I forgot to add, stay like Korra! :P

          • Ariana Moreno

            Thanks dude XD

          • Ariana Moreno

            cool beans man! Xp

          • Pokefan9150

            I’m also curious to know, what are you watching during those dry days of The Legend of Korra?

          • Ariana Moreno

            I actually just go back and rewatch all kinds of korra episodes! some from book 1, my favorites are the finale in book 1 and episode 8 and 9. I also watch episodes from season 2 including the finale over and over haha. I also find korra videos on youtube where they put audio into them, like ”korra crack” you really should search it! it’s hilarious as heck! it’s like abridged but with movie and show audio and stuff! music too! what about you??

          • Pokefan9150

            Well, I needed a new show to help me through this tough wait for Book 3. So I watched Attack on Titan and finished it in 2 days. It’s very good, but it’s not good enough to get hooked on a new show. So I started watching Breaking Bad and I’m hooked, it’s crazy o.o, I can’t shut up about it to my friends xD I usually have no interest in drugs or anything of that sort but this show has such a good plot and characters that I can’t stop watching it. I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Y as well. Also, since you like Avatar/Korra Youtube videos, I made an AMV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf4seTtGjq0 If you ever feel like watching it, please tell me what you think! And don’t hesitate to tell me if it sucks.

          • Ariana Moreno

            I also find it hilarious that mako didn’t have the balls to break up with korra in the beginning and tell her the truth to her face. She was expressing her anger towards unalaq and describing what she was gonna do to him and then mako was like, oh shit, i can’t mess with this girl if i wanna save my ass XD

          • Pokefan9150

            Exactly xD Mako is legitimately scared from Korra. However, that wasn’t the main reason he didn’t tell her at first that they broke up. First of all, it’s a total lack of respect for Asami. She was right there, in front of him frowning even and he didn’t have the balls to tell Korra they broke up. The worst part for me was when they were heading to the South Pole and Korra was outside Varrick’s boat (Zhu li xD) thinking and Mako would go hug her without any hesitation. What a jackass!! Oh yeah, and I remember when Korra saves the day during the finale and Mako runs to her and kisses her on the cheek. Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with that guy? Where’s the loyalty, respect and commitment?

          • Ariana Moreno

            Dude!! That’s what I was gonna bring up too!!! Where he still dared to kiss Korra after him and Asami were back together!! if I were korra at that moment I would’ve been like, woah, just saw in the tree of time that we broke up, so which is it??! that’s why I can’t stand him!!

          • Pokefan9150

            Then people actually want him with Korra. I understand there is different opinions in life but seriously, who the hell wants Korra, the goddamn protagonist to have a relationship with a guy that can’t hold loyalty for more than a freaking second. It’s like you can’t put Mako next to a girl before he’ll be all over her. I just hope the bad waterbender girl lures him and cuts his balls off (if he has any). That’ll show him to play with people’s hearts.

          • Ariana Moreno

            HAHAHAHAHAH!!! YEAH BUDDY XD agreed.

          • Pokefan9150

            Where are you? D:

          • Ariana Moreno

            I’m sorry about that! I was in class in stuff and now I gotha leave my laptop again! Just know I wasn’t ignoring you or anything, but I love discussing Korra with you, and I certainly can’t wait to talk to you again! I check this site every day, multiple times throughout, so I’m sure we’ll be able to discuss more!! I have more to say and I’m sure you do too! Talk to you soon :) although, even if I’m not on the site, don’t hesitate to message me if you wanna discuss something else, because I’ll check it and respond eventually XD

          • Pokefan9150

            Of course! :D I’m just happy I found someone who gets what I’m saying and understands the core of my favorite show. You take your time with your responses and only answer when you feel like it, I never get mad at late replies. I understand people have real life issues to take care of and it is more important than discussing a show. :) Take care and feel free to discuss with me at anytime!

          • Ariana Moreno

            Where’d you go?? XD

          • Pokefan9150

            Right here :)

  • Daniel A

    The romance wasn’t a big deal for me. From the second episode, it was obvious that Korra and Mako were the OTP. That’s fine. I just didn’t care for how the relationships between Team Avatar was based on their romantic feelings for each other. So I’m glad they’re cutting down on the romance. Give the characters some room to experience other emotions beside lust.

    OMG I JUST GOT DONE WITH THE FINALE AND IT EAS JUST MIND BLOWING I CAN’T SAY IT REALLY!*Q*

    Anywho if anybody is interested I’ll be posting my review on my DeviantART tommorrow! If anybody’s interested just go to: http://www.ChoOhana.deviantart.com
    If anybody has a DeviantART on here plz watchhhh me!;w;

    Okay now back to Korra and less focus on me!^.^ I guess it would be nice for Bumi to be a big role in Book 3. What I don’t get the most is that people don’t like the “romance stuff”! I don’t see how it’s gross or anything! I’m also wondering if there will be spirits in Book 3 or not? Um if they made another Avatar series in the future I don’t really care if it’s a Avatar after Korra or before Aang just as long as it’s good although that would be pretty cool to see the life of an past avatar I have to admit!^_^

    Well that’s all I have to say, nite!;)

  • Katherine M.

    I don’t think the romantic aspect of the show is completely gone. I think Bryan meant the love triangle when he said teen romance. Teenage romance is romance but not all romance is teen-oriented.

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      I agree with that. Taking out the ENTIRE romantic angle is unnecessary.

  • Jackson

    YESSS!!! I’m so happy there’s little to no more romance, I wish it could’ve been like this starting from season 1, but it’s better than nothing.
    These creators are pretty trustworthy (Unlike some other ones) and give me alot of hope for Book 3

  • Falco

    I wasn’t all too against the romance stuff in the show so far. I mean, it’s constantly going up and down, but I think they’re trying to take a more modern approach on the show. That kind of stuff happens nowadays, and they’re probably trying to appeal to the fans more, especially since the show is aimed toward a more mature audience, unlike ATLA which was more for the younger crowd.

    Also, if they actually made a full-length movie for LoK, that would be INCREDIBLE! And imagine if it was shown in theaters… I’d be first line for midnight show, every day of the week! :D

  • Kyle Edgecomb

    An avatar befor aang? Hmmm nice idea, but im a bit all out for s new avatar after korra who adjusts to our type of modern society in a 21st century style avatar world

  • razorstar

    Korra needs to move on to General Iroh 2.0. That’s what she needs to do. Mako can’t make up his damn mind so Korra did it for him by saying “it’s over for real this time”. Mako can stick with Asami bc she’s on his dick no matter what apparently. Korra let Asami have Mako and you can get a new man.

    • Sibis

      Mako deserves to be alone. The show proves the point that he’s just terrible to have a relationship with.

      Iroh would be good for Korra. They respect each other highly.

  • Katie

    I think that it might be interesting to make a series where you can learn along with Korra, the airbender kids or somebody about all the past Avatars. Well, not all of them, but some of the important ones and what they did to change the world.

    I would be a HUGE fan of an Avatar related to Toph. That would be EPIC.

  • Octavio Guzman Vazquez

    I say it’s not the first time I see such situations, yalo saw in shows like adventure time, regular show on such issues and in my opinion should say that falling in love korra asami to have a relationship together to improve the program

  • Sibis

    I think it’s time to do a major time skip forward. The whole teen thing is worn out. Time for these characters to grow up. Especially the Air Bender kids so they can do more.

  • Eliminator

    I just found ab interview at the beginnings of book 2, which made me quite happy. Here the source:http://family-room.ew.com/2013/09/13/legend-of-korra-season-2-burning-questions/

    The most important part of the interview for me was this:
    DiMartino: One thing you can always expect from Avatar is a little romance. We show how Korra’s duty as the Avatar and Mako’s job as a police officer put a strain on their relationship. And Bolin is really trying to find his way in life and love, which leads him into an awkward relationship with Eska. Asami will always be a friend. I don’t think there’s romance in the cards for them.
    ——-
    I know, that things changed since the beginnings of book 2, but the ALWAYS makes me believe, that we can still see some romance scenes – hopefully.
    Your thoughts?

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      I don’t mind the romance. But love triangles WITHIN Team Avatar are tearing these characters a part. An outside love interest for each character – like Bolin & Eska – would work out a lot better.

      • Eliminator

        I agree with that, the love triangle was indeed a bit annoying, although it reminds us about real life, which is not always perfect either…

        I made a lot of comments already blaming Asami to be the trigger of this love triangle, but I realized, that it’s mostly Makos fault.
        However at least the love triangle will come to an end, i just hope, they dont end romance at all. (If they started to write book 3 shortly after book 2, they probably haven’t changed much anyway.
        Also Konietzko stated:
        “Mike and I as writers, we wrote it the way we found it to be entertaining, and that struck a chord with some, but maybe not with some others.”
        and by the way: Bolin x Eska

  • Drace

    No, I want to see the future of that world. Korra did a wonderful job, taking the known Avatar-world into a technological future, that’s kinda similar to ours and now, after Harmonic Convergence, we see a huge spiritual change to that world, too. I want to see how that world would look like another seventy years in the future. Imagine these people walking around with SmartPhone-like things one day. XD Or even better: Wait for the first lunar landing. How would that turn out in that world? :D
    I find it also interesting, that they have already established possibilities for future storys. It’s not that long for the next run of Sozin’s Comet, for example. And what’s with Unalaq/Vatu? If he’s really a negative version of the Avatar… shouldn’t he have already been reborn? Think about it: The two Avatars, destined to fight for all eternity. Well, that’s mythological!

  • julia

    i actually kind of want to see a 21st century style avatar. I just feel like- as a viewer- i would be able to understand the show a lot more than i would understand a show that was set in a time period of the 1940s (it looks like the 1940s) and i feel as we would also be able to relate more to the show. I dont know, thats my opinion :P

  • Alchaggy

    I just want to say that more than 13 episodes are needed Per book, 20 or so would be fine to explain and to everything else in the series, besides more chapters will mean more avatar stuff !!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    I would love for them to carry on the series with a male Earth Nation avatar set right after Korra, maybe it’s timeline would have similarities to real life modern time. Maybe if that one is successful, they should totally do one more series with a Fire Nation avatar possibly set in the future where the villains are advanced artificial intelligence bent on eradicating all humanity. I would definitely like to see the Fire Nation avatar be a girl similar to Azula, just you know, not insane and murderous. I would really hate for the creators to go backwards and make a story for an avatar the precedes Aang. We’ve already moved on with Korra, might as well keep going.

  • Wise Lion-Turtle

    First off, I stopped reading this when I saw: ”they know that many fans are “uninterested” in Korra’s love life.” I am agnry because of that, because I do know that there is much Makkora fans out there, including me, and that this is not true. So please, Mike and Bryan, I don’t want to tell you how to do your job, because you’re doing it excelent. I only want to tell you to not say something which is not true. Second stuff, what happened with team Avatar is horrible. They spit up and everyone turned to his life even in the middle of a great danger, the spirits (which are actually a dissapointment. Why? Because for me, A GIANT CARROT CANNOT BE A SPIRIT NOR BLUE BUNNIES WITH MOSKITO WINGS, so please, take it more seriously). There own stories aren’t bad, but boring, no one cares for Asami’s Future Industries, nor Bolin’s acting career. I think they should bring them back together and make some great and new team avatar adventures like in good ol’ days. Beside all that, it wouldn’t be bad to bring the Pro Bending Tournament to life again. That’s all of me :)

    • Grant

      I agree completely the old days with little technology was much better. The first season of LOK was so into this generation of tech and it kind of bored me, the old avatar days were much better. Although I feel like season two of LOK finally brought back the old side of avatar, with more bending and spirit stuff than advancements in technological warfare.

  • Wise Lion-Turtle

    And one more thing to say, the past would be much better to do as the third avatar in my opinion, the future looks gray and full of machines which is horrible for me. The wars between brave soldiers with sords, their bendings, mounts like dragons, bisons and similiar ones are way more better then fighting with guns, airplanes and other stuff in the gray metal future. In my opinion, the avatar fits beter in nature, old cultures and a beautiful still young world without these scars of new machinery, where still are feared spirits like Koh, the face stealer. Korra was and still is awesome, even with this crap of book 2, but the avatar series shouldn’t go any further in future. In my opinion, the avatar isn’t for future, Korra is the last stop for me.

  • Nelson64

    I think they should keep going forward with the Avatars. I’m just not very interested in the past anymore. We know most of what there is to know. I feel like the future is more uncharted waters.

  • Elizabeth

    I LOVE MAKO AND KORRA DONT END IT!!!! SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIKE IT!!!!!

    • Grant

      Exactly.

  • Lualia

    I don’t think they should cut out the romantic angle completely, but they should DEFINITELY not make it an emotion roller coaster for their viewers! Book 1 fans were craving to see Mako and Korra finally together, but book 2 literally ruined them. Mako is now not even liked as much for basically choosing Asami over Korra which should absolutely never have happened. There was also too much romance in it. What I would like to see in book three in a neutral zone in the romance aspect, but still have Mako and Korra want to be together. If they do get back together, they should not be so overly intense. It’s like they loved each other more than anything one moment, and then were in the worst fight ever the next. The writers really disappointed me with the way that they had handled it. Honestly, there are so many people I know who may stop watching this series because of the immense disappointment and emotional pain that these characters created. If Mako finds another interest beside Korra, or Korra finds a different love interest than Mako that will most definitely be the end for this series for me. These characters were supposed to be together. A lot of fans want the romance angle, just not the conflicting love-triangles and the taking away from the actual plot line of the show.

  • AvatarFan!duhuh

    Yeah.. at the beginning of season 2 I was like “oh no this series is going bad, way too much unnecessary silly and romantic stuff here…”, except for the whole war between the northern and southern watertribes, really didn’t see the betrayal and everything comin’ ;)
    But THEN the whole storyline with Rava and Vatu started up and I was like “oh yeah, now we’re getting somewhere!:D” I really like that whole plot, it’s very original and it sheds a light on the origins as well as the future of the Avatar :)
    I guess if anyone “needs” a boyfriend in the series, it would be Asami rather than Korra cause Korra’s already such an independent, strong woman, you know ;)
    Guess fire and water just was kind of impossible to combine in a relationship :P
    We want more!! Bring on season 3!!:D
    PS: oh and while you’re at it how about a sequel to “The Last Airbender” movie? that kinda left me in suspense..:P

    • Grant

      Just going to say that was definitely not the best movie ever

  • Grant

    Personally I really like the romantics involved in the plot of LOK. It makes the series better overall because of the romantics. In ATLA the romantics made the series well rounded and in the episodes that weren’t so important and had some romantics within them made them a little more interesting. I think they should leave the romantic level exactly were it has been all these years. It’s perfect. And for those people out there that think the romantics take away from the series I am here on the other side to say that they add to it and make it better.

  • Grant

    If they do end up making a new series I also hope that they go into the past instead of the future. If it goes too much further into the future the avatar role will be so far diminished because of technological advancements and the growth of the population of non benders that the spiritual side could be lost. Then it wouldn’t even be the avatar theme we all know and love.

  • Sven

    What would be really cool is if they did four seasons following an Avatar from each type of bending… Two down, two to go… I like the idea of doing prequels… I would love to see a series around Roku and see how the fire nation spun out of control only to try and conquer the world. Who knows…

  • avatarfangirl

    I totally agree on your last words, it would be super cool if they continued with past avatars miniseries or something like that. :)

  • Jessica

    Okay, the love triangle is done. So, that means Masami is coming back now? DX I mean, Mako is available, and Asami is always all over him anyway. Now that Makorra is over, Masami just might come back. -_- Asami just might come on to Mako AGAIN, and Mako will take her back, AGAIN. -_- If Masami comes back, *sigh*. Who do these creators/writers ship, Makorra or Masami? I really wish I knew. *sigh*

  • Kate

    I think they should do what they did in ATLA and have a couple characters within the group have mild crushes (whether it be on someone in the group or not) and show it subtly through some awkward glances or mild flirting but no relationships until the end. Maybe even further Eska and Desna’s characters to the point where Bolin can actually have a relationship with Eska without it being as overly bizarre as it was. I would even like to see a Sokka/Toph type of relationship where one character clearly has a crush on the other and makes cute gestures but they’re still okay with being just friends. I still want a little romance and flirting but I just don’t want it to take up the whole storyline and ruin people’s characters like it did in the past. Plus I like the thrill of shipping and trying to predict which characters will end up having the big kiss at the end.

    just please no more Mako. He’s such a tool. He knowingly hurt Asami by kissing Korra in front of her when they had just restarted their relationship and messed around with Korra when he was with Asami. Blech. I really hate that guy.

    I’m all for Iroh. Bring on the beef. Leave Mako to twist in the air. jmo.
