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:
