Legend of Korra 2 Year Anniversary, Book 3 Release Date Re-Prediction, Book 2 Source

Two years ago today, Nickelodeon premiered the first season of The Legend of Korra, titled Book 1: Air. I was a junior in High School and it’s simply amazing to look back and see how times have changed. One thing that has not changed, however, is my love for the Avatar series.

Even at age 18, I’m still in love with a series that was technically meant for children. However, as a college student, I’ve finally been exposed to a better sample of the world who share the same love as well. There are students – both younger and older than me – who share an equal passion for the series.

It’s simply remarkable to meet people around campus and hear about how they, or their best friend, are in love with Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. I should remind you that all of these people are in their late teens, early twenties.

Remarkable for a “cartoon” that’s on Nickelodeon.

While today is the 2 year anniversary of The Legend of Korra, it was also the day I expected Korra Nation to return. Unless Nickelodeon decides to initiate a new phase later today, it appears as though my prediction for Book 3’s premiere will get pushed out some more.

The fact of the matter is that Nickelodeon will spend about two months advertising The Legend of Korra. As of today, we’re looking at an early-mid June release date. Just to keep the record straight, I expected an April – May release date mostly because I thought Book 3 was coming “soon.”

Image of Legend of Korra Book 3 Villain Released

So we get a news hiatus for about a month, and Bryan decides to break it when I’m at my friend’s lake house – without a computer.

I’ll be posting from my phone today, so please excuse the lack of content for this post. Bryan released an image from a color correcting session that happens to depict Book 3′s villain.

The image is sort of blurry and, to be honest, I can’t really make out much of it. The villain appears to be a male and perhaps an Earthbender, too.

One thing we do know, however, is that the Earth Queen likely isn’t the enemy – as I predicted. The fact that a villain has been publicly released is fantastic because it means this particular character will be developed as a villain from the beginning – much like Amon as opposed to Unalaq.

As far as the writing is concerned this makes me extremely happy. Based on the image, the villain looks frightening, which is almost the opposite of Unalaq because, frankly, he didn’t scare me.

I’ll have more analysis on the villain when I get home. Feel free to speculate for yourself.

High Expectations for The Legend of Korra Result in Criticism, Negativity

I’ve been generally absent from the fandom crowd for some time now, mostly due to the lack of news and partly because of my personal schedule.

Now, as I jump back into The Legend of Korra offseason world, I find myself thrust into a “dying” fandom and an alarming amount of negativity to which I was ignorant prior.

I read through Keval’s article analyzing the current status of The Legend of Korra’s fan base with a distressed, echoing call from the distant back of my mind. This call is the one measure I believe many loyal fans of the series have overlooked since the airing of Book 2: The Legend of Korra’s standard of quality.

I do NOT wish to fuel the fire of negativity, so please don’t take my article as a lecture, and instead perceive it as an assertion of opinion.

So, what do I mean by The Legend of Korra’s standard of quality? The quality standard is the degree of success we the fans expect our favorite TV shows to reach with every episode. If an episode is below the standard we set, then we will be disappointed by the content. However, if the episode ranks above the standard of quality, we will be surprised and extra excited by its content. Personally, my standard of quality for both The Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender is at about a 9 on a scale of 10 (which is very high for a TV show), and so if an episode ranks below a 9, I’ll be a little let down (depending on how far below the standard it is), and if it ranks above a 9, I’ll be ecstatic.
