Too bad I like real discussions...
Though, personally, I must say that waterbenders are the coolest :mrgreen:

I have always related more to firebending personally. Because I am 100% sure, that if the bending arts were real, that would be the element I would have. I'm just that kind of person.

Anyways, now that I've had a chance to cool down from the initial hype, I do have one concern. Perhaps 70 years was a little too soon to separate the two series. Maybe the comics will explain it better, but I think that 90 years would have been the ideal time-skip rate.

Now I have a question. On the (almost) completely asanine idea that they make another series after this one, Will the prefix remain "The Last Airbender"? Because the new comics are still called "Avatar". So what do you think?

Discplined and ambitious? Cause Avatar actually did a very good job at avoiding the "fire=hot-headed and emotional" cliche. All the master class Firebenders were extremely disciplined and ambitious.

Take even the most sunny and warm character like Iroh. He had to have extreme control over his emotions to not get bitter over Ozai getting picked for the throne, rather than himself(Iroh was the older brother afterall), and managing to be in the Order of the White Lotus with an agressive warmonger as brother. And Iroh was ambitious, too. He interpreted the dream of himself conquering Ba Sing Se(actually freeing it, but he didn't know that yet) as fate leading him to immortality.

Plus, the pinnacle of Firebending is Lightning-bending which is said to require discipline as any mistake will kill you.

Hell, it's the Earthbenders who seem to be the more inclined to be emotional and passionate. The top Earthbenders are Toph and King Bumi afterall. Though Earthbending seems to be mostly about willpower and patience.

Perrito Caliente wrote:Now I have a question. On the (almost) completely asanine idea that they make another series after this one, Will the prefix remain "The Last Airbender"?

I think it'll be "The Last Airbender". They seem to want to phase it in, as the official moniker of the franchise, to avoid a lawsuit battle with 20th Century Fox.

I know it may seem "stupid", but it's better to be on the safe side. Look how a fantastic franchise like Marvelman got ruined simply due to a name battle.

Yes, I am... well no I'm not. I guess I would make a better earthbender (I always found it the most practical of all the elements). Now that I think about it, I'm not enitireley sure what kind of bender I would be. :unsure:

Anyways I guess "The Last Airbender" could work. It's something I can live with. After all, most franchises aren't in sync with their names after the second or third installment. (Ben 10, Street Fighter, etc.)

And yes i got that from the wiki.

Now does anyone have any speculation on who Asami or Hitoshi Sato could possibly be?

I relate to her more than I should. The whole striving to be perfect, and acting like things don't bother you (example for Azula: Her Mother liking Zuko more) even though they do, and kind of just blowing it off until it comes to a breaking point and you can't ignore it anymore. And I am quite manipulative irl, sad to say.

I think in that sense i relate more to Zuko. I have always (and still do) done everything I can to please my father, yet sometimes its just not enough. It's not like he's abusive to me or anything like that. It's just he's always expected me to be perfect, and hates it when I do anything less than that. I always bottle up all my feelings, just to be polite.

Technically, the title isn't accurate even with this one. If (as has been stated) Aang had kids, and some of them are Airbenders (and we know that at least one is, the one who is going to teach Korra airbending) then, by defintion Aang wasn't the last airbender. Unless the implication is that Aang was the last Avatar who was an air bender (i.e. the Avatar line is going to die out in one or two generations, before another Airbender is due to ascend) and even that seems dubios.

I know. There are 4 airbenders now (6 including Korra and Pema's yet to be born child) Tenzin and his 3 kids. I was just saying, it's kind of normal for a series not to be directly in sync with its title.

On itunes they are selling ALL THREE SEASONS OF AVATAR FOR ONLY $15.

.....

Wow. Considering the complete box sets are like 30 bucks each on amazon, that's a pretty good deal.

I've always thought of Waterbendering as being the most emotional based art. Like, Hama learned Bloodbending from anger, spite and revenge, while Katara learned it due to fear and desperation. Also, using bloodbending requires a sort of primitive rage; Hama to earn her freedom, Katara to avenge her mother’s death. It’s the complete opposite of Lightningbending, where one has to free themselves of all emotion to perform the art.


Perrito Caliente wrote:I was just saying, it's kind of normal for a series not to be directly in sync with its title.

The title being "The Last Airbender", is more for a reference kind of thing. People see the title, and think "O! This (new series) is related to that (old series)." That's why the creators add a bunch of stuff after the main title (i.e. The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra) to relate it to the new arc or saga or whatever. It’s to make it easier on the audience, and, even more important in this case, to avoid a lawsuit.

I think the Luitenent is that one cop chasing Korra throughout the trailer.

I also have a theory that the Order Of the White Lotus will make a re-appearance and various youngsters from the original series might be members.

I really like the name Hiroshi Sato. Very japanese.

The track team has desided that the music for The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra will be "If Jazz was invented in the 20s by the Chinese...". This is a very interesting idea. How do you think it will be realized? The Track Team has also stated on thier twitter page that the first episode will feature string quartets and it will be "very emotional". Do any of you have any links to chinese jazz songs that you think Korra's music will be similar too? Are there any instruments you think they will use? Are there any original tracks you want to return?

That is a really odd combination. Jazz music is a mix between Western African and European music. So, will the Avatar Jazz be a mixture of African, European and Chinese, or just African/Chinese or European/Chinese? This makes me wish I knew music theories, so I could imagine what it would sound like.

They'll use the piano, drums and bass, definitely. Personally, I hope they incorporate the trumpet, saxophone, violin/viola/cello, gu zheng and a multitude of Asian instruments I happen to have no clue about. I really do hope, though, that the music includes vocals. Not with every song of course, but I believe that vocals are an important part of jazz. They can just be so soulful. I wouldn't mind any language they're sung in either, but I want it to be a combination. Like, one song in English, the other in Mandarin, then Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese; just a bunch of languages, since the cartoon is basically a mix of all Asian cultures and some American.

Also, super epic Jazz song in Cantonese:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN-efauSp3c
I have no idea what it's saying, but the music is spectacular, and the woman singing is fantastic. I don't know about you, but to me this song just screams Korra.

Wow what a coincidence. I favorited that song just the other day. I do admit it sounds amazing.

I was reminded of the Scarf Dance song from the original show. I do hope they incorporate some vocals in their jazz music as well. Since the creators are Cowboy Bebop fans, I wonder if they will do anything like that show did.

Considering anything the Track Team made is pretty much guaranteed to sound breathtakingly beautiful, and since jazz is my favorite genre of music, whatever Korra produces is sure to satisfy me.

Water, earth, fire, air.

Long ago, the three books lived in harmony,

Then, everything changed when M. Night Shyamalan attacked.

Only Michael Dante DiMartino, Master of all three books, could stop him,

But when the world needed him most, he vanished.

Four years passed, and the internet and I discovered the new Avatar, a waterbender named Korra.

Although her waterbending skills are great, she has a lot to learn before she's ready to save anyone, but I believe, Korra can save the show.


Just found this on youtube.

Have any of you heard that they might reschedule the release to 2013? Dark Horse's press release has what many consider to be a typo in it. Read here for more info.

I think it's a typo, I doubt Dark Horse would be the first to announce something like that, even if it were true. And animationinsider(what kind of source is that anyway?), is just echoing the Dark Horse entry.
