Image of Korra & Asami from Legend of Korra Book 3 Released

Bryan used Tumblr just several hours ago to publish another Book 3 image – this one finally featuring Korra and Asami. The image is unfortunately in black and white because Bryan’s phone apparently doesn’t like to take pictures of screens. In the image, we see Asami holding up punching pads and Korra standing in a fighting position, with both of her hands in fists. In the background, we see some trees but it’s unclear what the location of this image is. The caption of the image reads, “Book 3 buddies.”

Some time ago, I wrote a post talking about how a friendship between Korra and Asami has been confirmed by the writers. I see this image as bonding time for the two female characters, which is great if you’re looking forward to a Korra-Asami friendship. And I stress friendship because there are a lot of fans who are convinced that Korra and Asami will end up in a relationship.

No! The chances of that happening are literally 0% – Korra and Asami will remain friends. Now onto something worth discussing: Asami seems to have adopted new training gear. Correct me if I’m mistaken, but it looks a lot like an Earth Kingdom based training gear due to the trim around the shoulder and chest pads.

It’s a bit hard to tell since Bryan’s camera conveniently took a black and white picture, so I’ll leave that up to you. Is Asami wearing Earth Kingdom based training gear? You can see the full picture below:

Book 3 buddies.

  • Nico

    Definitely looks like Asami is wearing Earth Kingdom gear. Very curious about the black and white… what phone can’t take good pics now? Sounds fishy.

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      Agreed. Sounds very fishy.

  • Ariana Moreno

    FINALLEH XD some KORRA!!! It looks to me that Korra is teaching Asami some pro bending moves! haha could it be? Asami not in a vehicle or seen with one?! what has this world come to O.O haha XD but bottom line no matter if it’s pro bending or earth bending, she’s not with a freaking piece of transportation equipment!!! XD

    • Josh

      Lol why would Asami be learning pro “bending” moves. Last time I checked she was a non bender. Unless a lion turtle swam over and decided to give her some bending I doubt it. It’s most likely the other way around.

      • Ifreke Umana

        Maybe Korra’s the one training and the costume is for Asami’s protection, but then again it’s not clear what’s going on exactly.

        • Josh

          Yeah, Korra is obviously the one training, but it’s hard to say why.

      • Legama

        Wild question. If Asami were to be a bender, which element would she bend?

        • Josh

          Fire, definitely! I mean she’s just so fierce, I can’t imagine her bending anything else.

          • MG

            Hiroshi Sato is a Fire Nation colonist, which means that the Satos are of Fire Nation heritage, so yeah. Fire.

          • melon lord

          • Ariana Moreno

            i think she’d be an air bender to be honest if anything, she’s too soft! fierce? haha XD you’re crazy

          • Josh

            Have you not seen her when she’s kicking ass or driving? That’s the fiercest a women in Korra can get.

          • Ariana Moreno

            no. korra is the fiercest a woman can get. i shouldn’t even have to list examples of how many times korra has expressed her anger and aggressiveness. asami? pssh, you gotta be kidding. anyone can drive like justin bieber XD

          • Link9150

            That’s your only example for fire bending? What about her usual behavior, she forgives, she doesn’t hold a grudge, that doesn’t tell you anything?

          • Ariana Moreno

            exactly. you get it! sheesh O.o

          • Josh

            Yeah, but can you really picture her airbending or even wearing an airbender outfit? If she didn’t want to fight she would be a pacifist, like aang and many other airbender’s. And she’s basically from the fire nation soo…

          • Ariana Moreno

            so the only reason why you say she wouldn’t be an airbender is simply because of the style of dress? that’s silly bro there’s more to it than looks

          • Josh

            Not just that, her personality shows that she doesn’t mind fighting, which airbenders do. Also she is very precise and calculating, so she reminds me of Azula.

          • Ariana Moreno

            she uses transportation equipment. she doesn’t fight at all!! she’s useless! she’d be helpless in a match with benders! you can’t compare her to air benders either. she’s nothing. korra is the fiercest. but how can you say this over someone who can’t even have self respect? and you’re comparing apples to oranges completely

          • Josh

            Have you watched this series. Book 1 episode 10, Asami kicks a bunch of ass. And Book 1 episode 7 and 8 so she can fight!

          • Link9150

            Because she can fight she can’t be an airbender…!?!?! Are you real?

          • Ariana Moreno

            she’s not a fighter naturally. only when she’s desperate defending herself and friends. but she’s not a real fighter. it’s not in her heart. she didn’t even fight her dad after what he did. korra was always ready to fight anyone including her uncle and yeah, what does fighting have to do with air bending? Aang fought…

          • Josh

            Umm…Againg did you not watch this series? Asami fought her dad twice! In episode 7 and the Book 1 season finale!

          • Ariana Moreno

            yeah but she didn’t’ want to continue. she controlled herself. she held back. plus still, how does any of what your’e saying prove she’s a fire bender? her hair? XD

          • Josh

            I mean when fighting one of your parents who wouldn’t hold back? Korra didn’t hold back against her Uncle because the fate of the entire world was at stake. And an Uncle is completely different than a father. Korra wasn’t even close to Unalaq, at most she saw him once a year during the Glacial spirits festival. Asami and Korra both did what was necessary.

          • Link9150

            So you’re basing something that is part of their natural personality on decisions they both made on their feet? Yeah…ok, brilliant.

          • Ariana Moreno

            okay. but you know, still. how does this prove that Asami is a fire bender?

          • Josh

            Your the one who brought it up, i’m just disproving you.

          • Ariana Moreno

            no. you’re far from that. the biggest difference between us is that you have failed so far to use actual logic to back yourself up

          • Ariana Moreno

            my whole point is that she is not the fire bending type at all. she’s anything but fierce. she’s an airbender.

          • Josh

            Asami is definitely fierce. The creators tend to call Asami a badass a lot, would they call someone who is very peacefull and elegant a badass? No! they would call someone who is fierce and a fighter a badass.

          • Ariana Moreno

            she’s not a fighter. she’s soft. if asami is fierce, what is korra?

          • Josh

            Asami is not soft. If she were soft she wouldn’t keep on getting into these dangerous situations with her friends. Korra is also fierce, but I wouldn’t use that exact word to describe her, because fierce is a more feminine word, and Korra is not feminine.

          • Ariana Moreno

            Asami is too soft. if she’s so fierce why can’t she handle a smaller problem when a douche like mako disrespects her? why does she let korra get away with stealing mako why does she help people who don’t appreciate her and mistreat her/take her for granted? also, if she’s very forgiving and puts up with shit, she’s soft. look at how Tarrlok easily arrested her and she did nothing. she’s not a fighter, fire bender, or fiercest character in the series. again if she had such fierce power, her role wouldn’t be cab driver for the team. also, it’s easy for anyone who has a weapon to act brave. but that doesn’t mean they’re capable with out it or brave. pema doesn’t fight. but don’t you think she would if she had a glove? those equalist weapons change everything. asami is anything but fierce, and a fire bender. it’s not in her. the anger, the power, the rage, the hunger for control. she’s calm and forgiving. plus, now your making words have gender based meanings? fierce can be used for anything no matter if it’s male or female. fierce is used to describe anything. now you wanna tell me you know which words are more masculine and feminine? really?

          • Ariana Moreno

            creators are gonna say what the hell they want about characters they made up! it’s self praise. heard of that? look at what the fandom says otherwise!! plus, would you really go by what they say especially when book 2 went down the way it did?!

          • Link9150

            Asami and Azula…? Yeah, ok… I don’t know how I can take you seriously now.

          • Ariana Moreno

            sorry pal, but anyone can have road rage. that doesn’t make them strong. at least enough to convince you of the person being a fire bender…i have no clue how you came up with this claim

          • Link9150

            So it’s about appearance for you? How pathetic. Aang was fierce when needed as well, but he was peaceful and pacifist naturally. Same goes for Asami when in danger she gets fierce but she is always peaceful and calm. Her attitude favors airbending very strongly.

          • Josh

            No, appearance isn’t the only thing, but it is a factor. Can you imagine Toph being a waterbender or airbender. Can you picture Azula being an earth bender, water bender or Air bender? If you think about Asami’s heritage then she would be a firebender. And this show defines elemeNts by colors and appearances all the time. Water benders wear blue, fire benders wear red. What does asami wear…RED!

          • Ariana Moreno

            but personality wise she’d have so much trouble with fire bending. air fits her more. she’s too soft. look at her personality. personalities and elements are also linked…not only that, but atla gang dressed as fire nation but they were water benders, so who says that clothing is an accurate backup

          • Link9150

            Azula looked pretty cool in Earthbending clothes in Book 2 of Avatar… Do you even know what you’re saying? Elements are related to your behavior, for example Aang had difficulty with Earthbending since it’s not like his behavior, same with Korra and airbending… Don’t you pay attention, geez

          • Josh

            I pay attention, its just when I picture Asami bending its fire not air. Elements are depicted by personality,aslo peoples heritage. Asami wears red because she is of fire nation descent so technically speaking she would be a fire bender. If you wan’t to get technical then there you go. Noithing you say can change that fact.

          • Ariana Moreno

            dude…really? so color automatically tells you what element someone bends? the personality matters more than their freaking clothing O.O

          • melon lord

            Ok. then the way you’ve been describing Korra she should be fire not water.

          • Ariana Moreno

            she does use fire bending a lot actually. but she’s the avatar. so, water was the element she was born with first. plus look at unalaq. he’s hot tempered and powerful, but still a water bender!

          • melon lord

            So if she wasn’t the avatar she’d be fire??

          • Ariana Moreno

            maybe. but anyone can be fierce. look at her uncle and dad, and they are water benders. what does fierce mean to you? does it automatically mean fire?

          • melon lord

            maybe?

          • Ariana Moreno

            if she wasn’t a water bender, i’d say yes! it would be the element she’d be able to handle the easiest. she uses it the most out of the elements.

          • Link9150

            And why is that?

          • melon lord

            Quoting Ariana,

            “no. korra is the fiercest a woman can get. i shouldn’t even have to list
            examples of how many times korra has expressed her anger and
            aggressiveness.”

            “you obviously haven’t seen the way korra’s personality is then…which
            is surprising, considering that everyone complains that she’s too rash
            O.o”

          • Link9150

            Question: Does fierce only mean fire to you?

          • melon lord

            Answer: no

          • Link9150

            Then you’ve just contradicted yourself. Why wouldn’t water or earth or even fucking air get considered as fierce. Water can slice, Earth can crush and air can create fierce tornadoes as well.

          • melon lord

            so now air is fierce now? that means Asami isn’t air because she isn’t fierce.

            Ariana, ” i think she’d be an air bender to be honest if anything, she’s too soft! fierce? haha XD you’re crazy”

            Sorry Kevel for getting off topic again on here.

          • Link9150

            Any element can be fierce, but longterm wise Asami`s behavior strongly relates to air since she forgives and is relatively calm. Saying she battled once or twice means nothing and is completely overshadowed by her naturlal behavior and personality.

          • Ariana Moreno

            unalaq and tonraq also have the fierce attitude. korra is even described as having her father’s personality. so, how am i saying she’s only a fire bender??

          • Josh

            I beg to differ. Before you know someones personality and just saw there clothing, you would automatically associate the color of it with an element. The creators set up a world so that it would be easy to know someones heritage or bending based on what they wear.

          • Link9150

            So you’re using a childish system that favors aesthetic preference rather than more logical facts such as the correlation between one’s behavior and element?

          • Josh

            Im just saying that the creators set the world up that way. I never said that personality isnt a major factor. But be honest if you saw someone wearing a water tribe getup you would think waterbender!

          • Link9150

            Yes, they made it up that way for children to easily identify, just like the Power Rangers for example. Let me ask you something, what if an Italian wore a shirt where it says “God Bless America”, wouldn’t you automatically think her’s an american when he’s in fact an Italian?

          • Link9150

            Looks like you can`t handle my heat. At first you managed to argue with both Ariana and I, but now you can only manage to argue with one. Pathetic. I`m off for now, if you ever feel like repeating yourself do it on a reply of mine that you haven’t yet. Do yourself a favor and re-watch the show. Oh! And pay attention, would you?

          • Josh

            Lol I mean when both of you are posting like two comments each on something I post, It’s hard to reply to both of you in a timely fashion. And i’m sure what i’m saying to her is exactly what I would say to you!

          • Link9150

            I’m progressing and deteriorating your childish argument on clothe color and you don’t seem to respond, may I ask why?

          • Josh

            I just told you why, I don’t have time to keep on scrolling down to see your comments. I just reply to the ones that are closest lol. And the only thing that You and Ariana said that could disprove my clothing theory is the thing about the Gaang wearing other clothing. But that doesn’t do a good job at disproving anything since those are the only characters we saw wear clothing that wasn’t native to the lands.

          • Link9150

            I’m using personality dammit!!! It’s one thing for you to sound stupid but it’s another thing not to follow what I’m fucking saying. You’re the one that brought up the colors since you clearly have the brain of a fucking five year old.

          • Ariana Moreno

            how many times have we used personality too?!!!! pay attention Asami is anything but fierce. she is not naturally a fire bender.

          • Ariana Moreno

            hey i just argued with your pathetic attempt to make asami out to be the fierce fire bender she is look below

          • Ariana Moreno

            i just told you how everyone in atla dressed differently for disguise. why do you think none suspected them of being a bender of a different element? if that were true, Aang and the gang would’ve been easily spotted. same with azula and her friends pretending to be earth benders. same with Zuko. sorry, but no.

          • Josh

            You just contradicted yourself so much! Lol with what you just said your basically agreeing with me!

          • Ariana Moreno

            no. i’m saying how do you know that someone isn’t in disguise? the point is you can never tell by just clothing!!! i’m not contradicting myself! you don’t get it. everyone who is wearing clothing in atla wasn’t that bender. so going based off of just clothing isn’t smart. personality would define the element the person bends more.

          • Josh

            You are, because your saying that because of their clothing they were considered to be of different heritage. I’m saying that because of the world set up by the creators it makes it easy to be able to associate a person appearance/clothing with the element they bend. How many people do you think are in disguise? Asami always wears red, meaning that she comes from a fire nation background, so if she were to be a bender it would be a fire bender. It matters about heritage as well as personality, but heritage over powers personality End of story!

          • Ariana Moreno

            you are completely ignoring the personality aspect which is way more important and linked to the element they bend. so, again, how is Asami a fire bender, and how is she the fiercest? not only that, but Aang and Katara and the gang still had trouble pretending to hold angry personalities when disguising themselves

          • Josh

            Your completely ignoring the heritage aspect of it all. Asami is of fire nation descent, not airbender. Thats like saying if Korra weren’t the avatar she would be a firebender, since she is so aggressive.

          • Ariana Moreno

            we could’ve said that katara and Aang had fire heritage because of the way they dressed. but they didn’t did they. plus, what heritage? wheres the freaking proof of this in the first place?

          • Josh

            Hiroshi said that he was from a small fire nation colony! And has Asami ever worn anything other than red, hinting that may be she isn’t firenation? No!

          • Ariana Moreno

            she would be an air bender. why won’t you answer my question and use a different argument? what makes her fiercest, and what makes her a fire bender other than her clothing??

          • Josh

            I told you countless times that her heritage makes her a fire bender. As much as you think her personality may resemble that of an airbender, it doesn’t matter since she is of firenation descent. If Tenzin happened to do some adult things with Asami’s mom, then maybe she would be an airbender.

          • Ariana Moreno

            where did you get her heritage? her clothing? haha XD pathetic. heritage can’t be guaranteed either. it could be mixed. like link said, look at mako and Bolin, so how is there any proof of your argument? personality would determine a bender more than the color of fabric on their body.

          • melon lord

            Go check out Nick’s character description if you want proof, I left a link for it bellow. And MG commented on it too.

          • Josh

            As for her heritage I know it because Hiroshi said he was from a small fire nation colony. As for Mako and Bolin, yeah they have parents from different nations,but they still wear their native colors, do they not?

          • Link9150

            So to you color is what matters? Tell me, what if an Italian wore a shirt where it says “God Bless America”, wouldn’t you automatically assume he’s an American when in fact he’s an Italian?

          • Josh

            You and Ariana are so stuck on the colors. I clearly keep saying that heritage is what matters most! Although color is a factor as well as personality. The only people that we have known to wear colors that aren’t native to their respectful element are the Gaang, and tha’ts because they were hiding.

          • Ariana Moreno

            well you’re basing this all on Asami being fierce. but she’s anything but that.

          • Link9150

            I’m stuck on it because that’s the only thing you’re talking about. As for heritage, I told you it is completely overshadowed by behavior and personality. Some of you said that Korra’s naturally a firebender because of her attitude, well… She’s by heritage a waterbender so you’re contradicting yourself. Don’t put your lousy arguing on us.

          • melon lord

            who has said she’s naturally a firebender?

          • Link9150

            Certainly not me, I think it was you in an earlier comment.

          • melon lord

            Nope not me. I just said seemed like Ariana was from two comments I read early in the conversation.

          • Ariana Moreno

            i’m saying fire is something she wouldn’t struggle with because of her personality. but that doesn’t mean she’d be a fire bender…

          • melon lord

            Then I got confused somewhere earlier. I agree with you.

          • Link9150

            Then surely Josh or another one, I know I’ve seen it once or twice in that comment section for sure.

          • Ariana Moreno

            no no no. i said IF she wasn’t a water bender. also i said fire woulld be the easiest element for her to learn. that’s what i meant.

          • melon lord

            Alright, thanks! Then I was just confused. I havn’t read the rest to keep up so this is where I respectfully bow out.
            Man hope Kevel doesn’t get too mad

          • Ariana Moreno

            yeah. so if you wanna get involved, make sure you know everything first cause then it causes more problems

          • Josh

            I never said that, so don’t put words in my mouth lol. Ariana said that if she wasn’t the avatar she would be a firebender. Which is dumb considering none of her parents have that ability. I don’t know if you have taken biology or what, but there are these things called genes and when two adults have intercourse their genes go into the baby that is made. So personality means nothing next to a persons heritage.

          • Ariana Moreno

            no no no. i said IF she wasn’t a water bender. also i said fire woulld be the easiest element for her to learn. that’s what i meant. we’re talking about personality and elements. not clothing and elements.

          • Link9150

            If personality didn’t have a major part influencing it then why ask the fucking question and discuss it in the first place, you moron? I don’t know if you know this but elements is primarily correlated with one’s behavior. If you can’t understand this don’t show off about biology on me. Because that would mean you have no culture at all. And since you can’t read I said one of you, not you.

          • Josh

            first of all I didn’t bring up personality, you and Ariana did. Secondly you and Ariana’s logic of personality being what decides what type of bender you are is just stupid and illogical. Yes personality does influence bending, but if none of your family members can Airbend do you really think your going to be able to solely based on your personality? If so then I don’t know what else I can say, because that would mean you and Ariana don’t take facts and logic to heart. And when you reply dont mention colors because we have been moved on from that!

          • Link9150

            Oh my God, from the start Ariana and I were talking about Asami’s bending regarding personality and you come up here showing off with elementary-based knowledge of genetics and clothe color. That’s what we were debating, regarding fucking personality. Even nowadays in real life when someone asks you your element you base it off your fucking personality. Sato may be coming off a Fire Nation colony or whatever the hell, but he’s still a non-bender, so he or his grandparents or ancestors might have migrated from an Air Temple or Water Tribe or the Earth Kingdom. So suck it up, shut the fucking hell up and admit you are wrong.

          • Josh

            Me admit i’m wrong? First of all, people in the avatar world base peoples bending off of the clothing that they wear. You can’t try and tie the real world into a show because it’s completely different. We don’t wear colors to define where we are from or what element we would bend, but in the avatar world they do. When Bolin first meets Korra he says that she is a waterbender, based on what she was wearing, not her personality. Do you really think people have the time to learn somebodies personality just to figure out the element they bend? As for the Genes thing, you sound ridiculous, Do you think her Heritage honestly goes back that far. Asami is from the fire nation, deal with it! Don’t try to refute facts by saying things that would never be the case, that’s where you make yourself look childish. Everything I have said in all my comments are facts! In the avatar world people use colors to identify where a person is from or what element they bend. In the avatar world bending is passed through the genes. so if you don’t have any ties to airbenders than it’s impossible for you to be one! Even if your personality resembles an airbenders. I really wan’t to know what made you think that you would win this fight. You and Ariana used little facts, the only thing that was a fact is that a persons personality influences or is influenced by the bending that they ALREADY have. And I never said that that wasn’t the case.

          • Ariana Moreno

            what kind of question is “do you think her heritage goes back that far?” haha duh, ancestry goes back in time and it’s generation by generation. your grandparents, their parent, their parents, and so on. can’t believe that i have to spell that out for you. heritage goes back to the beginning of history! how can you ask that question?? also clothing doesn’t prove everything in the avatar world. there are other things to consider. also, if you say that personality is also influenced by the bending, wouldn’t’ that even make more sense to claim that asami is not being influenced by fire? because fire is known as the angry, dangerous, rash element. asami is anything but that. she is calm, and forgiving. she is slow to anger. this has nothing to do with a couple of times of her defending herself. look at korra and asami. you will see a difference with the temperament there. bending influences personality, and vice versa. so if you agree with that, how the hell can asami be a fire bender when her attitude clearly resembles an air benders? also, you have no proof that in her bloodline there is no trace of air/water/earth. if you wanna go based on looks, might i add that she has green eyes? green eyes usually resemble earth bender trates. so, if you wanna go based on looks, how about that? i normally don’t go there, but if she were a fire bender, don’t you think she’d have gold/brown eyes? mako and Bolin’s eyes match their element. so, now what? this just proves that looks can be inconsistent when trying to prove someone is a certain type of bender. you are contradicting yourself. you can’t win this argument. just admit it.

          • Josh

            If anyone cant win this argument it’s you. The things I say are based on facts Melon Lord even provided a link that tells you about Asami’s Heritage and how her lineage can be traced back to the earliest fire nation colonies. The argument that personality decides what element you bend is ridiculous, where are your facts? If you want to continue that argument ill give some reasons why Asami’s personality leans more towards a firebenders. Firebending is aggressive, precise, and likes to spread and conquer. When fighting and driving Asami is very aggressive and precise, being a business lady she likes to spread her business and crush the competition just like her father did. As for airbender personality traits she has little to none. She doesn’t like to meditate, she is argumentative and definitely doesn’t have a problem with fighting, which most airbenders do. Any chance Asami gets to fight she will take it, she doesn’t like to sit on the sidelines and be a helpless “soft” girl.

          • Ariana Moreno

            this doesn’t make someone a fire bender. “being a business woman, and having road rage in a car,” that doesn’t make someone a fire bender. now you’re just plain making shit up. Asami is always pushed to the sidelines. that is the problem with her character and now you wanna deny that all and say she takes every opportunity to fight? i give you examples of how she gave up on fighting quickly and this is all you come up with? hell, you challenge me to look up the definition of fierce, and i do, and it just ends up backfiring on you. you ignore it when we prove you wrong, and just start making up other shit/exaggerating things to make yourself look high and mighty. but seriously. you have no logic. you deny things i’ve brought to your attention, and you tell me that just because someone “cares about her company, and drives like justiin bieber on the road” automatically backs up your claim of her being fierce. if you can’t defend yourself, don’t do it because it just makes you look desperate and stupid when you come up with things even after they’ve backfired on you. we didn’t lose shit pal. if anything, you’ve lost your mind and ability to use logic when saying asami is fierce. also, again she has the attitude of an air bender. enough said.

          • Josh

            OK first of all I haven’t made anything up or exaggerated. As I have been doing this whole time I’m using facts. Personality wise Asami is more of a fire bender.I gave you plenty of reasons why, yet You haven’t given me any on why her personality is that of an air benders. “Oh, its because she’s soft and forgiving!” No! anyone can be forgiving. And Asami is far from soft. Also when has she ever given up on a fight? When she fought Hiroshi she defeated him, she didn’t give up. Also every opportunity Asami has had to fight, she has taken it. Not once has she refused to. I will admit to Asami being pushed to the sidelines, but that’s because she has other things to do that don’t always fit into the plot. So your the one making things up. Don’t try to make it seem as if i’m the one losing by telling fruitless lies. Everything you said was based all on theory and speculation. Is it true that bending influences a person personality…Yes! But based off of Asami’s personality and Lineage she would be a fire bender. An Airbender is probably the last thing she would be. In your next reply I wan’t examples of everything! Tell me when Asami gave up on a fight, tell me when she has refused to fight, and give me some examples of why she would be categorized as an air bender! This will be the only comment that I reply to out of your most recent ones, since they all basically say the same thing.

          • Ariana Moreno

            OH MY GOSH!!! O.O you’re crazy. i’m not arguing with you anymore. you’re so freaking blind. have you not been reading everything i told you?! you know, since you wanna act all smart, i’m sure that you won’t have a problem figuring out what i’m referring to when Asami is soft. it’s obvious as hell. anyone can say that about her character. i gave you examples in my other replies, and i’m not gonna repeat them. just use that brain of yours that you claim you have, and start thinking about it. also, Asami is not the fiercest fighter in korra. Korra is. It’s easy for anyone to act like tough shit when they have a weapon to cheat in a battle. how much do you wanna bet she’d be helpless and run if she didn’t’ have a weapon to use? want examples? watch the series again. you can’t deny her personality isn’t that of a fire bender. it’s not. case closed. if you have anything else to say, i don’t care, because your’e hopeless. i’m not wasting my time anymore with you. get educated before you decide to argue with someone next time, and make sure that everything you’re saying makes sense. because right now, you don’t. go ahead and deny logic. it will definitely get you somewhere. keep telling yourself that you’ve won, after a while, someone will join you. but obviously you haven’t been reading my comments, because i’ve backed up everything and countered what you said. have fun

          • Josh

            I cant take you seriously. You keep on calling me dumb and crazy and you say I deny logic and fact. But have you presented any logic or facts. I asked you to do one thing and that was to give me examples of when Asami has ever fled from a fight, or how her personality is an airbenders,and how she is soft. Yet you haven’t done any of this. So this just proves that you have no facts to back up your claims. You keep on saying find it yourself, I know this series like its the back of my hand and Asami has never fled a fight! Also I even said that Korra would kick more ass than Asami, I mean Korra can bed all 4 elements. And not just anyone can be good with a weapon, it takes skill. Also that’s like a handicap for Asami since she is a non bender. That’s like saying that anyone who has bending is a cheat. In a battle using no weapons or bending Asami would most likely win against Korra since she is more adept to using hand to hand combat. There are no and if’s or buts about it. Based on the facts of the show Asami would win. But I honestly don’t want to get in another debate with you lol. So lets please not start about who would win between Korra and Asami.

          • Ariana Moreno

            you know why i haven’t done it so you claim? because i shouldn’t have to. it’s that freaking obvious. also, i listed things for you in my other claims. you wanna know another fight she didn’t participate in? the finale in book 2! as soon as korra told her to leave with her dad, she did without one word of “oh korra can’t i fight with you?” don’t you think that if Asami was a fighter she would’ve stayed and tried to help out? she didn’t have anything going for her and also, she didn’t speak up for herself when korra asked her to leave with her dad. that’s not what fire bender does. also, what’s the matter, you don’t wanna debate another topic with me? afraid i’ll make you feel stupid again? XD

          • Josh

            Asami didn’t flee. She knew where she was needed most. Why would she argue with Korra for no reason. Korra’s dad was severely injured, someone had to take him. Asami did her job she helped Korra and the rest of the team get into the spirit world. without her they would have never made it past the northern soldiers. Some people would have had to travel by land and they would have been fucked!

          • Ariana Moreno

            really? if korra saw value in her as a fighter, don’t you think she would’ve used her to help gain ground for closing the spirit portals and distracting unalaq? that’s not asami’s character! oh my gosh. i’m done with you. once again, transportation is different than fighting one on one in combat, and not using a weapon. this doesn’t prove jack shit. you just don’t get it. and i know i’d kick your ass in another debate about who would win if it was korra vs. asami, so i’m not gonna waste my time. bye.

          • Ariana Moreno

            i have presented logic and facts. the question is, have you?! because obviously you can’t even understand the logic that’s coming from our arguments…you must not even know what logic is itself

          • Josh

            This is really my last comment. Personality being what decides what type of bender you are is your own opinion, NOT fact. Anyone can be peaceful or aggressive, it doesn’t matter the element. My heritage argument is based solely on fact so there is nothing you can say to refute it. Asami is of fire nation descent, so if she were a bender she would bend fire. Lin is of earth kingdom descent that’s why she bends earth. She doesn’t bend earth because she has the personality of an earth bender, its because its in her genes. If your personality argument was right that would mean Lin would be a fire bender which she is not. People can have personalities that don’t go along with their native element. I mean look at Korra, she may have the “personality” of a fire bender, but she was originally a water bender because of her heritage. My color argument is also based on fact. In the Avatar world People’s nations and elements are depicted by the clothing that they wear. We have only seen about 10 people at most wear colors that were not native to their nation. That’s only because they were in hiding. Fire benders wear red, water benders wear blue, earth benders wear green brown and gold, Air benders wear yellow and orange. These are facts! If you wan’t to try and argue facts that the creators have made then go ahead, make your self sound stupid.

          • Ariana Moreno

            you made up the definition of fierce by the way. that’s one thing you’ve made up XD so, in case you were wondering why i said that. because if you want the real definition of fierce, go on merriam webster. you make me laugh XD

          • Link9150

            You’re nothing but a pretentious fuck. You act like you know everything without considering logical possible facts that can counter or extend what you’re trying to say. I counter your heritage argument and you can’t admit it. Pathetic. Go have fun with your color arguments, faggot I’m done arguing with a stubborn pretentious dick like you.

          • Josh

            I don’t act like I know everything. You must feel as if I do. If you think i’m the one ignoring logical facts than you must not recall what you have been writing. Personality doesn’t mean anything next to a persons heritage. If you have no air bender genes than there is no way in hell that your gonna be able to air bend. Maybe if you used a different argument that wasn’t silly and based on little to no facts then you would be able to put up at least a little bit of a fight. You bringing up my color argument (which is also based on fact and is frequently used throughout the series to depict a persons heritage and bending element)just proves that you have lost this. We haven’t said anything about that since like 50 comments ago lol. Also it’s not like it’s a bad argument, its more solid than you personality argument. But at the end of the day My heritage argument crushes yours! I mean you can’t refute facts and science.

          • Link9150

            I just fucking countered your heritage argument. Why are you still ignoring it?!?! I obliterated it in pieces and you’re still repeating yourself. Suck it up, I owned you.

          • Ariana Moreno

            you just don’t wanna admit your ass was kicked by two people at once XD

          • Josh

            You just don’t want to admit you got your ass kicked by one person. I find it so hilarious that you think you won this debate. You presented no fact or logic. Don’t say you have because you haven’t. Everything you said was completely opinion based. Don’t try to sound smart or try to refute my FACTS, because you fail every time. Once you go get actual facts then I will be happy to entertain anything you have to say. Goodbye! The only thing you were successful in doing was wasting over 6 hours of my life. I really don’t feel like having to repeat myself again and again. This will probably be my last comment to you on this particular subject. I hope your not the type of person who holds grudges. I like to forgive people and look past things(So I guess I must be an air bender! I’m being sarcastic by the way.)But in all honesty I do enjoy debating with you, lets just save our energy for another topic because I have been up to long, and have barely gotten any of the work that I was supposed to be doing done! Bye :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            then the creators wouldn’t bother saying Aang and Korra struggled with elements and bending them…their personalities influence their abilities…

          • Ariana Moreno

            i said IF she wasn’t a water bender…listen!! that doesn’t mean she’s a fire bender. i’m just saying it’s obvious that fire comes easiest for her to learn. she is a water bender so that’s out of the question. but if she was never a water bender, she’d be a fire bender!

          • Link9150

            Forget this faggot, he obviously can’t defend himself. He’s just trying to act like a smart ass. Meet me at the Forum if you can. Fuck this guy.

          • Ariana Moreno

            lets forget the heritage for a second. tell me how the hell Asami is the fiercest character on korra? if you consider Asami the fiercest, what is korra to you? soft? cute? nice? really?

          • Josh

            I take it you wan’t to drop heritage vs personality thing since you know you lost that battle lol. But Asami is the fiercest because she is a strong independent women that knows how to kick ass. When she is fighting she is very aggressive, and when she is in her many vehicles she just looks badass. I know your gonna try and say she cant fight, but she can. Asami has been in self defense training since she was a toddler. I mean it shows in the amount of chi blockers she can defeat. On the nick page it even says that equipped with her trusty shock glove she could take on any bender. As for why Korra is not the fiercest, it’s because fierce is many times used as a feminine word. With Korra being so masculine that wouldn’t be the correct term to use to describe her. I’m not saying Korra doesn’t kick ass, because she does, and a lot more than Asami.

          • Ariana Moreno

            dude, you just backed me up right there. Asami uses….wait for it….A WEAPON!!! she can’t fight on her own! she needs a weapon to defeat opponents!! it’s easy for someone to act tough when there’s a weapon in their hand, but that doesn’t mean they would last one second if they were on their own. So, no. Because someone can drive like maniac on the road doesn’t back up she’s a badass and tough. she was easily arrested by Tarrlok. Example right there how she didn’t fight back. Also, several times Mako did shit in front of her with korra, and she didn’t say shit after that. once. but the rest, she just put up with. she’s soft like an air bender. case closed.

          • Ariana Moreno

            fierce has no gender base to it. look it up. and not on google where people can post random shit.

          • Ariana Moreno

            again, we could’ve gone back to thte gang in atla, wearing different clothes. if we didn’t’ know who they were in the beginning, how do you wanna bet that we would’ve assumed they weren’t firenation? they’re too peaceful. something would’ve stuck out. clothing doesn’t prove anything. it’s the personality. not only that, but the gang couldn’t portray believable fire nation attitudes.

          • Josh

            Well then if its the personality, then Asami must be of Airbender descent since you think her personality is that of an airbender. You sound stupid saying that everything is based on personality. Just as shown in ATLA and LOK there are fire benders that aren’t aggressive, and there are earth benders that aren’t strong and confident.

          • Ariana Moreno

            hah i sound stupid? you sound stupid saying shit like “Asami wears red, and she drives fiercely so she’s a fire bender.” how is she fierce? you still haven’t answered me. how does Asami make a good fire bender? that’s like saying Aang would be better at fire than air, and korra at air better than fire. really? i fail to see how anything you’re saying about Asami is true. i’m not the one that sounds stupid.

          • Josh

            Umm… OK I’m not sure if you haven’t been reading any of my comments,but I have stated plenty of times that Asami is fierce because she isn’t afraid to fight, and when she does she is very aggressive. And no that’s not saying that Aang would be a fire bender, He is the least bit aggressive,he would rather run than fight. If Asami didn’t want to fight she wouldn’t have gone looking for chi blockers in episode 8 would she? And like I also said its not just about personality or clothing, it’s mainly about a persons lineage. Asami happens to be of fire nation descent.

          • Ariana Moreno

            you gotta be freaking kidding me. Asami only followed the chi blockers for the sake of aiding korra! she was transportation! if she was a fighter, why was her role so limited when they could display her so called fierce attitude and power? you are so pathetic. Aang still fought as well. Look at what he did to keep republic city even! he charged after yakone. he would defend himself if in trouble as well. that’s what asami did. she didnt go looking for a fight. she just helped korra out passively. if she did do something, it’s not enough to say she’s a firebener. Aang did more than Asami did! And sure, she isn’t afraid to fight, but neither is anyone else. Bumi went after the water tribe in korra book 2, would you call him fierce? no. you’re not convincing me with logic. this doesnt’ make Bumi a fire bender.

          • Josh

            In that fight Asami was actually the one that took out the majority of the chi blockers with her shock glove. Also how can you say that she wasn’t looking for a fight. They were on the hunt for chi blockers, do you think Asami thught they would just give up willingly? Now lets think about this, if we set personality and clothing aside, Asami would be a Fire bender due to her Heritage. I mean if that doesn’t convince you then I don’t know what will

          • Ariana Moreno

            with a weapon!! anyone can act brave with a weapon in front of them! that changes everything! but notice when Asami didn’t have that glove, or plain, or car, she was useless and didn’t do much. look at how easily Tarrlok took hold of her to arrest her. fighter? fierce? fire bender? she’s not that type. that’s like saying Aang is a fire bender… you aren’t making sense.

          • Link9150

            Why have you stopped replying to me? I just sent you a reply that destroys your childish clothe color argument. Come on, reply dammit. Show me you have more arguments in store or else you’re simply talking out of your ass.

          • Josh

            Lol to be honest I didn’t even see them, and I was clearly busy talking to someone else.

          • Ariana Moreno

            everyone in atla fell for the gang’s disquise because they assumed that their clothing defined them. but look at the truth they missed out on behind all that…

          • Link9150

            Ok, first of all Asami doesn’t wear red she wears fucking black. Second of all, you’re not making any sense, you’re saying that just because she knows how to fight which doesn’t make sense since airbenders can also fight…. You’re contradicting yourself. Third of all, if you’re solely focused on heritage you can’t be accurate. Just like Mako and Bolin have parents of different nations the same could be with Asami.

          • Josh

            I don’t know if I would call her outfit black. I mean unless your color blind. As for airbenders not being able to fight I never said that. I said that they are pacifist meaning they don’t choose to fight. If Asami had a mixed heritage I doubt she would only wear firenation colors

          • Ariana Moreno

            i told you there are times where Asami chose to stop fighting!!! she’s not the fire bending type. you’re saying things like Tenzin being just like Zhao. makes no sense.

          • Josh

            I haven’t even mentioned Zhao or Tenzin in this conversation lol

          • Ariana Moreno

            but your logic is like comparing the two…

          • Josh

            No it’s not, please give me an example of how it is.

          • Ariana Moreno

            dude. you’re comparing Asami to Azula. do you know how that’s logical?? you’re basing someone’s element based on the color they wear. her personality is anything but fire.

          • Link9150

            I think you’re more of the colorblind, she wears mostly black. Is it too hard for you to forget a baseless childish argument? Or is that the only thing you can hinge on as of now?

          • Josh

            Lol it’s more half and half. The way you described it was like she only wears black.

          • Link9150

            I used that argument once since you couldn’t stop saying she was wearing red therefore she’s a firebender… Do you have ADHD?

          • Ariana Moreno

            so someone’s color tells you all about their bloodline? what the hell. logic? please?

          • BRANDON

            Calm down its never that’s serious!

          • Ariana Moreno

            you obviously haven’t seen the way korra’s personality is then…which is surprising, considering that everyone complainins that she’s too rash O.o

          • Josh

            Korra is strong and very bruting, but I used the term Fierce because Asami is still very sexy and feminine when she fights unlike Korra who looks more masculine.

          • Ariana Moreno

            wow…so depending on how someone appears automatically makes them a fire bender? seriously??? there’s way more to it than attractiveness. you don’t know the laws of bending then O.o or the way that things are in avatar

          • Ariana Moreno

            that’s just pathetic. please don’t’ waste your time with those very uneducated sounding comments. you don’t’ even realize the way you look and sound by saying all that bullshit. and what’s wrong with tomboy girls? we need more girls like that who aren’t sluts who are obsessed with the wrong things, and who are made to matter for looks only. at least korra is a role model and is herself. she has many reasons to be praised. asami? not really. she’s nice, but even then i would say she’s too nice. she’s too soft. fierce? not at all pal fierce is used to describe wild animals even. so your’e saying wow, that was a fierce tiger..you’re saying wow, that was a sexy feminine tiger! haha XD don’t make me laugh

          • Josh

            Go look up the definition of fierce on google then read the sample sentence. The word is used to describe a women. You never hear someone call a man fierce. I’m not sure if you don’t like Asami, but she is a good role model too, she is strong independent and runs her own company, what girl wouldn’t aspire to be like her. I don’t know where you get this idea of her being soft from, because she is far from it. She is not afraid to speak her mind and stands up for herself. Also girls don’t have to became tomboys, they just need to stop all that twerking and grinding, like have some class. I’m not saying that all girls do it,because they don’t. But with the way the world publicizes things like twerking and fighting its hard for them not to.

          • Ariana Moreno

            asami sticks up for herself? what the freaking hell have you been watching? she has been taking shit from everyone and hasn’t said a fucking word. everyone wants to see conflict between the 3 for a reason! because she hasn’t done shit to solve her own problems! she’s soft as hell! OH MY GOSH IT’S LIKE YOU ARE SO BLIND TO WHAT I’M TELLING YOU!! YOU ARE’T THINKING!!

            : very violent

            : eager to fight or kill

            : having or showing a lot of strong emotion : very strong or intense- this is on merriam webster. not google, the site anyone can post shit on!!! seriously????! oh my gosh you are pathetic.

          • Josh

            I will admit she could have done something more in the whole Mako being a man @#!*% fiasco, but she did stick up for herself in episode 10 of book 1 one. She told Mako that if he keeps doing what he’s doing their relationship is over. When her home is raided by police she is very uncooperative and argues a lot. Sticking up for herself and her family. Also who else has she taken shit from?

          • Ariana Moreno

            still. even if there are little moments here and there of her standing up for herself, it’s overall not enough for her character to be seen as someone fierce and strong, and angry. she’s very forgiving, and she took shit from the whole team avatar if you ask me. mako, korra, her dad, just think about it. why do you think everyone complains about her character doing nothing? she does nothing significant! that includes being a strong person and having self respect! book 1 may have shown more of that side, but in book 2 it was basically erased. all she did was bring love triangle back.

          • Eliminator

            Yes, she is a really useful taxi driver for Team Avatar. Best thing for Team Avatar is, it’s for free. ;)

            What are you talking about? I bet Korra is even better than Asamis little martial art skills.

          • Josh

            I doubt it, when you have bending you would tend to focus on honing those skills as opposed to other ones such as martial arts. Asami is very good at martial arts, she beat plenty of chi blockers. People who have beat Korra a couple of times. Also it’s pretty clear that in the picture Korra is the one being trained/training. So if you want to deny whats right before your eyes then be my guess!

          • Eliminator

            I feel a bit offended. Mike and Bryan posted the picture to let us interpret it in different ways. Just because we do not agree wtih your “I freaking love Asami, best fighter ever” – theory, doesn’t mean we are denying anything.

          • Josh

            OK it can be interpreted different ways(But only a few different ways at that)I’m not saying I love Asami, i’m just telling it how it is. Hand to hand wise she probably is the best fighter since that’s all that she is capable of doing. And to be honest Asami is probably not even in my top 10 Korra characters lol. I just like sticking up for the under dogs:)

          • Eliminator

            My problem about Asami is, she is a non bender. I even think, that in a fight without bending Korra could win because her strength overpowers Asami’s fighting skills. Benders just do have an advantage. Why keep her as a supporting character if there is nothing to do for her? Being Korra’s friend isn’t enough reason to still feature her. In a real fight against wild spirits Asami could only do the thing she did in the finale of book 2. Team Avatar’s taxi driver.
            I accepted her in book 1 because she was good against chi blockers and had a job to do. I didn’t see her contributing to Team Avatar in book 2, neither do I have a idea how to include her in book 3.

            I don’t think she’d shave the front of her hair like Yang Chen. But in terms of personality I agree. She’s more of an airbender, spot on.

        • razorstar90

          She’s an Earth Kingdom gal so She’d obviously be an earth bender

      • Ariana Moreno

        looks like someone can’t take a joke O.o haha XD can’t people learn to have a little fun around here? sheesh heheh

        • Josh

          Lol, sorry I just read the first part. I din’t realize how many “Haha’s” you put in there.

      • Eliminator

        You really think, a non bender could teach an almighty Avatar anything?

    • Link9150

      Looks like Asami moved on from being the new Appa xD

      • Ariana Moreno

        hahaha XD you bet

      • Angel Schneider

        hey. i can’t return to the forum anymore. but know that i’m sorry, and i miss you. i had fun while it all lasted. i will never forget you. (i still believe no matter what…)

      • Angel Schneider

        Just in case you’re wondering who this is, it’s me. I really do hope that in the future, if you change your mind, you can still talk to me. because now i can’t return to the forum at all. i tried, and apparently things on here affected my ability to get on the forum as well. we are a team. i refuse to let anything get in the way of that. so, please, if ever you want to talk still, you know ways to do so. i miss you. it’s crazy. but i will never be able to forget you. you have no idea how much faith i have that this, what we see now, isn’t the reality. this isn’t going to end here in other words. all things are possible. you gotta live open minded. i sure am. trust me, this will all fit together later.

        • Link

          (Last words, because it looks like I wasn’t clear last time)
          We’re through now. I don’t want to keep going on what we have, I disliked it little by little and it blew up on Friday. And I kid myself by thinking it was cool. I might also meet someone soon so you’d be (don’t take it personally) a burden. Please don’t message me anymore and leave me alone. I learned something as well, I shouldn’t ever take any sort of relationship online seriously again. Take it as a lesson as well, it helped me. Now, just reply by saying one word so that I know you read this so that I can delete it. I don’t want anyone to know what happened.

          • Ariana MoAngel SchneiderAngean

            okay

      • doesn’t matter

        alright.

    • Legama

      Told you, we just had to wait a bit more, so we could finally see her. Lastima, there are no surprises awaiting us on her : /
      Lets see what Bryan has for us on next week.

    • Eliminator

      It looks like she is arguing with Korra. Why is everybody interpreting this as “friendship”. Anyway she can fight as much as she wants, she stays a non bender and therefore not a worthy addition for Team Avatar. Let’s face it. Benders are cooler, unless you do have special leading skills like Sokka had.

    • Eliminator

      There was an unanimated picture of book 3, where Asami is entering a ship/boat. So no, she is still Appa xD

  • Cody Dennison

    This is looking pretty cool. :)

  • Rache

    Does anyone remember at the time when book 2 wasn’t out, how frequently were screenshots like this coming in? Because I remember that it became more frequent just a couple months before book 2 came out, so with the amount of book 3 screenshots coming in, I wonder how much time there is until book 3 now.

    • Mollie Nicole

      thats what I’ve been thinking. We’ve gotten one still a week for the past month. Also, we knew the name of Book 3 the week the Book 2 finale aired on TV. I’m the only person I know, however, who thinks Book 3 will premiere before SDCC. And this still is different, it’s on screen. My crazy theory is that Bryan and Michael are watching first draft (or even finished) episodes. But that is just one of my crazy theories that never seem to go anywhere.

      • Josh

        If you look at the background you can see that they are in color correction.

        • melon lord

          If they are in color correction, how much longer should it take to finish up? I know nothing about the process :/ (nor how you were able to tell they’re in color correction).

          • Josh

            After Bryan and the Gaang received take 1 footage for the first couple of episodes in Book 2, it took about 6 months for it to be released. Since Book 2 had a lot of difficulties with production I would assume that the Korra team had to do a lot of retakes. Now that Studio Mir is back, the Korra team shouldn’t have much of a problem with animation and character design . At the earliest we might see Book 3 by mid April. I don’t think that the creators or Nick will mind airing the show before comic con, because they did that With Book 2 of ATLA and Book 1 of Korra. They could also just go to comic con during Book 3′s release just as they did with Book 2. At the latest I would say August or September, but I highly doubt it since book 3 would have been done for around 4 months by then. The creators have a tendency to wan’t to release their content as soon as possible. So if Nick doesn’t have a problem with an April/May release I wouldn’t be suprised if we see it by then.

          • rache

            Awesome. Thanks for the info

    • Josh

      Well Bryan has been releasing screenshots within the span of 6-7 days now. The first one he put out this month was released on the 3rd, the next was the 10th, then the 16th, and now the 24th. With this data you can predict that the next screenshot will be released either next thursday or friday, just as I predicted the release of this current screenshot.

  • Josh

    What really intrigues me about this picture is not the clothing or location, but it’s what Korra and Asami are doing. You can see that Korra and Asami are immersed in some sort of combat training,(then again Korra may just be relieving stress.) If Korra is indeed learning how to fight better using hand to hand combat, then the question is why? Could it be that this season Korra will encounter a foe that is immune to her bending, or will she lose her bending for a second time? That would be a very interesting plot, Korra having to learn new ways of fighting as oppose to using her bending. And to be honest I really enjoyed the hand to hand fights that Book 1 brought with the equalist.

    • Eliminator

      Korra losing her bending is a joke, now since she is a fully realized Avatar with full access of the Avatar State.
      And nobody is immune to bending, not even Vaatu, and that counts. With book 3 featuring spirits and humans, it’s most likely a bending only book again, and therefore I guess Korra is just relieving stress or doing something else. I don’t thin she needs more martial art training. Why should a bender learn that particularly unless you are Amon.

  • Link9150

    Asami seems to be in a Probending costume. I liked Probending in Book 1, I really enjoyed it, but I hope not to see it anymore. It’s a subplot element and I don’t think I want Bryke to ever put in more subplots. I also hope that Asami and Korra’s friendship feels natural and not forced (like other things in this show…) All in all, I must admit that this pic inspires more optimism than pessimism in me. It just really pisses me off that it’s in black/white. Come on.. Colors can’t reveal that much.
    I think that this pic is taken in the Air Temple in Republic City. Also, if I had to take a guess I’d say this pic is from the first three episodes the most. If I ever learned something from last season’s screenshots is that there were always from the first two or three episodes.

  • Greenfire32

    It looks like Asami might possibly be wearing a modern version of the Kyoshi Warrior’s armor?

    http://i28.tinypic.com/zmkxhv.jpg

  • razorstar90

    Looks more like the Firebending gear Korra wore during her firebending exam. It also is very similar to the Pro Bending training gear in Book 1. I will say this Asami is pretty brave to take a hit from Korra. Korra’s a strong chick, remember when she threw that ball at Mako and he went flying. What’ll happen when she punches something?

  • Guest

    BOOO no new outfits or hairstyles BOOO (whatever Asami’s wearing doesn’t count)

  • Josh

    As far as the location goes I would say it’s between the Earthkingdom(Ba sing se, or the Beinfong Estate.) and Asami’s Mansion. Although it’s a little peculiar that Bryan’s phone suddenly stopped being able to take good pictures, I would have to go with Asami’s mansion. I mean it’s the most logical, and Asami’s attire looks like something she had tailored specifically for her. I doubt that they would have training gear that fit Asami perfectly at any other location. It even looks like it’s the same color as her normal outfits. I’m not sure why Bryan changed it to black and white. It could be for the reasons he stated, or it could be to hide something that would give the location away. Two things that could giveaway the location are the color of characters clothing and that wall in the back. If the top of that wall is green/brown that would mean that they are somewhere in the Earthkingdom.

    Below are pictures of the Beifong Estate. You should be comparing the walls in the pictures.

    • Legama

      It wouldn’t be rare if the team does a visit on the Beifong’s mansion. Since the book is heavily focused on Lin’s family.

  • Legama

    Good, i like this constant flow of pictures. It seems like Asami is kinda training with Korra, probably she asked some fighting advice so she could be more useful on the team. If Asami is going to continue on Team Avatar she has to learn a couple of new fighting moves.

    • Josh

      It’s most likely the other way around. I would assume that Asami knows more hand to hand combat than Korra, since she doesn’t have the luxury of being able to bend.

      • Legama

        Thats also a quite good posibility.

      • melon lord

        Could be, especially since Asami’s father had her trained in self defense. At the same time Korra has held her own with hand to hand combat in the past. Like when she took out that guy at the equalist rally with Mako’s scarf. So its not like she isn’t great at it herself. There’s always room for improvement tho?

  • Azulaalwayslies

    Is Korra learning Chi-blocking :D??? That would be so cool, or maybe they just take turns in a sparring sort of way.

  • Octavio Guzman Vazquez

    If you may perform a same-sex animated program, and to me is not great to see this kind of problem couples, sounds like a great opportunity for people to start thinking that homosexuality is normal as long as it respects and is a good idea to put in this series and animated where same-sex movies for future generations.

    • Josh

      MAYBE(emphasis on the maybe) in another 10 years. I’m not saying that i’m against same sex couples or marriage,but i’m sure that people who are would have a problem with their children watching it on a channel that’s about fun and learning. It would cause to much controversy, and there is also a rule that there can be no same sex couples or gay people in television shows that are tailored to the Kid demographic. Again, don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against it, it’s just that the world isn’t ready yet.

    • Legama

      Like Josh said, in 10 years or more. Even the US stills very conservative on that area. The show would be banned in several countries (i think even in mine, although is an occidental one) so it wouldn’t be good for Nick. Remember Nick was almost canceling Korra because the protagonist was a women, i cant imagine it approving a homosexual Korra. That would be just toooooooo much.

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      I’m completely fine with it, but there’s no way they’ll allow it on a Nickelodeon show yet. Not a chance.

      • Josh

        Sorry about all the off topic comments. You can delete them if you want lol.

        • Ariana Moreno

          yeah? so that others can’t see how much of an empty headed arguer you are? XD

          • Josh

            Lol everything I said was based on fact, you on the other hand have nothing to prove your, “Personality,” theory. I asked if Keval wanted to delete them because I know he doesn’t like off topic discussion. In my eyes you and that other guy lost this debate! I mean the things I said actually made sense. You were just going on about if they have a certain personality that means they would be that type of bender. A persons personality is influenced by the element they bend. Also Asami’s personality has little to no similarities to an airbenders. She doesn’t mind fighting, which airbenders are against. She likes to spread and conquer since she is a business lady. Lastly she is very aggressive and precise when fighting and driving. I guess those are airbender traits! As for her being soft, you must be mistaking that for her elegance and charm.

          • Ariana Moreno

            we have the logic of avatar to prove it, but you on the other hand wanna claim that owning a business and driving a car makes someone a fierce fire bender. no, haha you’re the one that lost this debate. you challenge me to look up the definition of fierce, and the definition i found on a reliable source is nothing asami is like, but you wanna make words masculine and feminine. what is wrong with you? but hey, we can all expect a little denial from someone like you. no worries.

    • Eliminator

      Our civilization isn’t that far to tolerate this yet, and with all religious people and so on LoK with homosexuality is like Bryke suiciding.

  • Octavio Guzman Vazquez

    True Love :)

    • Legama

      ¬¬ what are you trying to say?

    • Eliminator

      If you are trying to start anything of Korrasami you should do it on a different website. There are special tumblr and forum sites for this kind of stuff.

  • Kailee

    Asami looks awesome!

  • SD//

    Heyy. Asami is wearing a republic city police uniform rie? ^^

  • Kyle Edgecomb

    Yeah fans need to realise that Nick wouldnt allow a lesbian relationship in the show, cause its mainly aimed 12 onwards..

  • 23129

    right now: KISS

  • Aangism

    Ahh..arguments. It would be nice to read an argument that’s ACTUALLY RELATED TO THE ARTICLE.

    that is all.

  • Muggle

    It looks like Asami is in some kind of training gear, possibly Fire Ferret gear? Or something totally unrelated. I don’t see non-benders being allowed into pro-bending, and Asami’s rich enough that she shouldn’t have to borrow Korra’s old practice outfit.

    I think Korra might actually be learning hand-to-hand combat. It makes sense, because book 1 showed that she can’t always just rely on her bending and that benders in general aren’t all that great at close-quarters combat.

  • daniel yefru

    its really hard to see what there doin fighting or what?

    • Brandon

      Looks like a fight to me

    • george

      Looks like some kind of fighing practice. I think Asami is holding punching pads for Korra.

  • Brandon

    Keval you should consider blocking Link 9150 from posting because he/she seems to be incapable of having a level-headed debate without being rude and frankly offensive at times.
