I'm fiiiiinally gonna watch an episode of LOK.
And while this seems totally insignificant to everyone, it's like a huuuuuge thing for me.
I really adore A:tLA and it still gives me so many feels that I somehow can't accept a new generation (and absolutely stupid and unlogic Kataang...*mutters*) and absolutely refused to watch it, and tried avoiding it when it aired in my country as well.
In the last months or so, I managed to watch half the intro, before the feels became too much and I stopped again.
Ridiculous, I know...
Because no matter what, I couldn't avoid getting spoilered to no end... I know every single character with name, face and purpose and the entire plot.
So I choose this lazy and boring sunday to finally watch the first episode of Book 1. And I'm not gonna get my memories of the beautiful A:tLA show get destroyed by shit. No. I'm just gonna pretend it's something entirely different. Yeah.
Here, have beautiful artwork by Nymre of my favourite character so far: Eska
*whisper* and look at Nymre's artwork of the most gorgeous ship of LOK
I'm still not sure if I like Korra. I hear people complaining that she's never gonna be as great as Aang, but in all honesty, I don't think that Aang was a good Avatar. What he did after the show might have been great, but of what we've actually seen on A:tLA I simply think he isn't. But I like Aang anyway.
Awesome fanart by Ninjatic.
What annoys me the most are the couples/relationship troubles between Korra, Mako, Bolin and Asami. But that may come from the fandom talking about it so much. I'll see.
Now, on with it!
xxjust a quick update (03:26 CET | 21.10.13)
I finished book air just now and wanted to share a few things.
First off: the music is really beautiful.
Bending looks very ugly. Just punches and kicks all the time, no real bending moves.
I think I like Korra. Also, I think Bolin is quite the nice, funny guy and I find him absolutely annoying. Don't know why people keep saying he's such a good character. Asami is okay.
Mako is not an asshole, like everyone was screaming around.
Seeing the older Aang is weird. He's not Aang in any way. Could've been someone entirely different and it wouldn't make any difference.
It was way too obvious that Amon/Noatak was Tarrloks brother.
And another thing: I've never watched the original show in English, only the dubbed version, therefore didn't know beforehand what Zuko's voice actor Dante Brasco sounds like. I knew he was also voicing Iroh II and I was rather perplex and disappointed when I heard him talk. Dante Brasco seems like a very sympathic person, but his voice is nothing like what I imagined after everyone on the internet was totally fangirling over it. It sound's way too boyish and young and doesn't really suit Zuko and Iroh II is even older and supposed to sound more manly than that. Sorry Dante Brasco.
