Avatar: The Legend of Korra Question

Does anyone else hate Korra?

I really hate the character. Usually the main character isn't someone people would hate in the real world.

I feel like was over dramatic when she lost some of her bending. She unlocked her airbending, which she had been spending quite a bit of time trying to do. She could still bend! It's not like all the other characters who lost their bending, they couldn't bend at all. She could still bend! Airbend! That's amazing for her! Only four (Maybe five if Rohan turns out to be a bender) other people could do that! Amazing! And she mopes about it. Lin had a much more valid reason to cry about it, but you see her perfectly calm and composed, trying to convince Katara to keep attempting to fix Korra's bending. It's all about Korra.

On the more romantic side of things. Yes, she is the avatar. No, that doesn't mean it's okay for her to kiss a boy when she is well aware he has a girlfriend. Imagine if Asami had kissed Bolin while he and Korra were dating, there would be so much hate on the poor girl. Yet, Korra kisses Mako and people still love her.

Bolin, Mako, and Asami go through so much more than she does. Bolin and Mako lost thierp arents when they were young and had to struggle to live on the streets. Asami lost her mother when she was young, her father turned out to be evil, almost tried to kill her, and her boyfried cheated on her with Korra. Korra's parent's are alive and perfectly nice and loving to her. She doesn't have any tragic past to cry about. Yet out of all the characters she cries the most.

It seems like if she wasn't the main character and she wasn't the avatar everyone would hate her.

So, is it just me who hates Korra? Also, who else feels really bad for Asami?

she's the avatar and loosing three of her bending abilities is not something she'd take easily, she responsible for keeping balance in the world.

Wouldnt that hurt ? Ohh that's what I thought so with your thotty ass. So Shutup nd stop writting bad stuff about korra

Pragmatist said:
Korra represents what is wrong with our societal norms today. She is the embodiment of a post-Feminism culture infused with serious entitlement issues.

She's unlikable because she, like most girls brought up in today's "I'm special/feminine infallibility" culture, has no concept of the qualities of heroism. She has sacrificed nothing, has taken as she pleased, has shown no maturity or growth and disrespects everyone.

She is the antithesis of Aang in every way - she has no virtue beyond her powers, cares more about her own desires than the greater good and has a complete disregard for even the most basic considerations of those around her.

Where Aang was a hero and someone I would be happy for my kids to see as a role model, Korra is an anti-hero (I'd go so far as to say "villain") and exudes the selfishness and inflated sense of entitlement commonly taught to today's young women.

I find this follow-up to the Avatar: The Last Airbender masterpiece a great disservice to its fans and completely contrived from businessmen and marketing analysts instead of born from timeless poetry and relate-able lessons and morals.

I was deeply saddened to see such an unlikable and negative protagonist presented to our children as "one of the good guys." Shame on the writers.

I agree that Korra completely missed a chance to continue the morality and deep spiritualism of The Last Airbender. The episode in Season Two "The Guru" when Aang is learning to unlock his Chakras, was eerily similar to consciousness awakening classes I've taken and spiritual experiences I've had. I found it very moving. Anything of that ilk is absent in Korra.

Korra gets almost no hate. Asami gets hate. No, everyone else did not chose thier life. Mako and Bolin did not chose to grow up on the streets. Asami did not chose for her mother to die or for her father to turn out evil. Tenzin and his kids did not chose to be the last airbenders in the world.What do you mean by "Everyone else chose this life & wanted it"? Who chose and wanted it?

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
I 100% agrees with your statements.

Overall the script was bad, the character developments were lacking, and the worst part is, the main character was the main reason that made this show suck so much!!!

I was really hoping throughout the show maybe the creators are trying to make her look reckless, irresponsible, and unlike-able so there would be a redemption journey she has to go through to redeem/renoun herself, but no, all she does is saunters around making trouble for everyone, as well as, hurting others with no consideration nor remorse what so ever.
Then in the end of the episodes, it is shown that everyone should love her and apologise to her for the things she's done (makes no sense what so ever?!?)

The conflicts within this show is solved in a way that, she is always in the right and there is nothing she has to do or change to accommodate for the feelings of others. she just has to do what she think is right [AKA only the way she wants to do things and no other suggestions are accepted]

here's the basic formula that pretty much sums up the set up for each of the episodes: (*possible spoilers*)
1.someone steps up to provoke korra
(ex. makko, tarrlock, amon, and so many others, take your pick)

2.instead of thinking of a proper solution she runs straight in to the problems and takes the challenges with no second though of the possible negative consequences
(ex. confronting makko about her feelings after going on a 'date' with Bolin/ also forcing her statement on makko liking her too (...really?...), use intimidation tactics (her being able to bend all 3 elements) to force tarrlok to free her friends, challenge amon to an one on one duel, )

3.korra gets in trouble
(ex. Bolin saw the two kiss; poor Bolin is heart broken, got blood bend then captured by tarrlok, got captured by amon )

4.?????? (some ridiculous bs happens here)

5.korra is unharmed, but doesn't even look back on what she needs to change so it won't repeat again.
(-Bolin being a okay with having his heart shattered into pieces; now on to hurting asami's feelings
-Naga finding her in the snow saves her; let's go and confront some other villains without any strategies/ planing again! (hinting at calling out amon's real identity)
-amon not taking her bending away...wat? =____=)
"i'm not scared of anyone!!!" hm... just me and mako in the centre location of tons of equalists, and now knowing amon's a blood bender, lets just hope amon will play fair. fingers crossed amon will not use neither his blood bending nor the swarm of equalists to stop us...

At the last episode of season 1 she still has yet to show any character development. why? cuz the show is proving she does not need to....



Personally i think Asami is the nicest girl in the show, i really do feel bad that after all the heroic/ bad ass things she has done everything was taken from her, and no one is there to be by her side to make sure she is safe. ='(

Really? No progression in her character? The way she has been in the last five or six episodes of this series have shown a pretty drastic improvement in how she handles herself. To say there has been hardly any improvement seems strange to me.

No I don't hate Korra but I'm not particularly happy with her. I was a bit irritated when she freaked out about 'not being a bender' right in front of a non-bender. That probably offended Asami a bit. And I'm also not happy that she came in and stole Mako when Asami needed love most. But I still think she's a cool character and I like her personality.

Yes, I feel terrible for Asami. I'll just restate some of my old posts;
Seriously I wanted something good to happen to Asami but what I got was her getting tossed a side by her (rude) boyfriend, called an insolent child by her dad, almost killed by her dad, and was never comforted by anyone... To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. :/
Ifkr! She gave up everything for them and only suffered for it, and she continued to help them even after they hurt her! >__> Everyone rants about how she's a 'flawless Mary-Sue, I think it is a flaw that she's so selfless and trusting! Bolin is so sweet he's the only one who even tried. As for comforting KOrra; seriously, the woman was moping about losing her bending, and how not being able to bend is so horrible, right in front of someone who can't bend (probably leading her to think 'is it really that bad to not bend?' or something of that nature.)! Yet she was still nice to Korra.
Mako on the other hand, still irritated with him. I'm also pretty mad at Mr. Sato, he almost killed his own daughter! "You can never be saved", way to tell your own story Mr. Sato. Seriously it's like Asami was the only one who didn't get a particularly happy ending...

I don't hate her, but I do have problems with her.

What bothers me about Korra is, we don't see her grow very much as a character. Maybe on a little things, but she's still the hot-headed action-first girl that we were introduced to. Example, she challenged Amon to a duel in episode 4, and realized that it wasn't a well thought out plan and that she shouldn't underestimate him. But in the finale (8 episodes later), she and Mako went to a rally full of armed Equalists and Amon supporters, and accused him of lying even though she should know by now that he is a calculated person. She even said that Amon is always one step ahead. And wouldn't you know it, Amon covered his lie. It was only by chance that she managed to get the truth out.

It would've been nice to see her change fighting tactics. Tarrlok said that she is opressive and aggressive- both things that non-benders hate with benders. If she was going to be fighting a revolution based on equality, I think she should have learned to fight on that level. No bending, no aggression, etc. We didn't see her connect enough with the non-benders. It isn't that she doesn't care, but I still wanted to see a different side to her. What also bothers me is that when she went into the Avatar State for the first time, she was in complete control- Aang didn't have any control until the end, and he was much more spiritual than she was. It just feels like she had everything handed to her in the end, the boy, the power, the gift of giving back bending, etc.

As for the romance, I don't understand why she liked Mako to begin with. She never gave a reason. I didn't like how she kissed him even though he was dating someone, and it was even worse that she got to know Asami and still went after Mako (I'm not saying to completely disregard her feelings for him, but just to respect others feelings more- I know she cared, but it needed to be displayed that way more.) I lost all interest with Makorra, since it feels like it was built more on sneaking around and hurting people than the actual personal feelings towards eachother.

Well said. She is too one dementional. Aang was constantly looking inside himself, growing and changing, becoming a realized Avatar before our eyes. Korra seems like one of the bratty girls we all knew in high school. The one who only chases attached boys, or men who aren't interested. She's been given everything, loved, encouraged, taken care of. She has no pain in her past..... why should any of us relate to her.

keroberusreed said:
Her recklessness and sense of self-entitlement goes beyond annoying. If she were a girl at work or in school with me I would be among those totally hating on her. The lead heroine of a story should be someone people can admire, especially young girls who would look up to her, not someone you want to slap into oblivion. And though she is strong, her opening scene as a child pretty much sums up her one-dimensional personality, "I'm the Avatar; you all gotta deal with it!" She's a brute in a skirt.

There's nothing admirable about a girl who tries to steal someone else's guy, someone who foolishly runs headlong into danger without any regard to whether her friends are going to get hurt, or someone who doesn't redeem herself by understanding her own limits and thereby overcoming the largest obstacle: herself.

I realize she's lived a caged life under the protection of the White Lotus and she's hungry to experience everything, but seriously, could Michael DiMartino and Brian Konietzko have made her any more annoying? Maybe if she had a piece of snot hanging from her nose at all times...then MAYBE...

What ever possessed them to ask a group of tweenie girls (who don't understand the value of the dollar they just used to download an app with their parents' money) what they'd like to see in the next Avatar as a basis for Korra's character is a mystery.

Aang's character was likable and far more forgivable. He was still a child when he came out of that iceberg so you could chalk up his mistakes to naivete and youth (not to mention his entire people were massacred in genocide, so he had it rough). Korra is older, far more well-trained, and has had everything going for her since day one and still, she's a brat. Aang may have been a kid but he at least had deeper feelings. Korra's? "Oh, he doesn't like me? Oh well, let's move on." ...what?? I'm a fan of well-paced drama but did I just miss the part where she feels bad about what she's done, and to her friends nonetheless? Oh wait, it was entirely MISSING from the script.

For heaven's sake, she's not even the heroine who kicks butt and takes names!! She's a brat who gets her butt handed to her...a lot.

I realize that every prior Avatar had a "flawed" personality, but they were admirable against the enemy they faced. I'm still waiting for the moment to admire Korra... she almost peed her pants at the thought of not having bending.

Heaven knows where the "redemption" part of the story is going to be -- it better not be the last episode! This thing is only two seasons long. You have an awkward, annoying heroine and you want me to keep watching.... why?? (Oh wait, I already stopped watching at episode 5.)

I love your answer! I couldn't agree with you more! I only watched the show for Asami, Lin, Tenzin, and Iroh. And occasionally Bolin. Korra is by far the worst avatar and she has no respect for anyone. She is selfish and annoying. This season has put ATLA to shame.

No, I don't hate Korra, but she is certainly not my favorite protagonist.

She had her badass moments, and I don't think she overreacted when she lost her bending. I mean, she is the Avatar, master of ALL 4 ELEMENTS. So, if she couldn't bend all 4, she wouldn't really be the Avatar, now would she? ;)

Now, on the romantic side. Bleh. I could care less about the relationships. Though everytime Mako wanted to be all heroic and stuff I always said "Goddamn it Mako." Because I did think it was wrong for him to go after Korra when he still was with Asami. Yes, I thought she was gonna go bad or fight with Korra, but I really did pity her during the last few episodes. Mako became one of my least favorite characters in the series.

Overall, I think Korra's development was....alright. She had her moments, though her relationship with Mako (if that's what you could call it) was completely rushed. I did not feel like those two characters were in sync. But anyway, I don't hate Korra, but she definitely not my favorite.

Bolin and Tenzin were the best characters xD

I hate Korra with a passion of a thousand suns. I completely agree with you on everything. Korra's character just really bothers me and I find her so annoying, stubborn, and irritating. Her character is really lacking in character development. When she got her bending taken away, I didn't feel sorry for her one bit. She STILL had airbending! Also, it was kind of poetic justice.......like karma's a bitch because you were a bitch kissing another girl's boyfriend. But I felt her without bending was also a way for her character to develop and she would be able to relearn the bending or something along those lines. But no! Because she is the damn avatar...a terrible one, I might add, she gets her bending back within one day of losing it.
The season finale bothered me.......and this series puts Avatar: the Last Airbender to shame. I feel very bad for Asami. She, unlike Korra, is actually nice, cares about other's feelings, and she is always there for everyone. She lost the most, yet she doesn't shed one tear. She even sacrificed her old life for Korra, only to be shit on by Korra in the long run.

I personally love Korra but I will admit she made alot of mistakes that would have either gotten her killed or she would have lost her bending in the long run. I also disagree with Korra kissing Mako when she knew Asami and Mako were dating. It's kinda messed up she would do that. BUT let's face it she has NEVER really had self-control. Self-control is her weakest aspect. And that trickles over into other things not just bending and spirituality.

I see what you mean about Korra whining about bending but let's face it. SHE LOVED bending it was like something important was taken away from her. Asami never bended so it wouldn't matter either way for her. She wouldn't know the feeling. Compare a normal person losing some important aspect to Korra losing her bending. It's the same feeling. I am pretty sure she didn't mean to offend Asami in that aspect.

I feel bad for Asami. Mako just dumped her to be honest for Korra. I kinda saw that happening. I am not a shipper but I feel Bolin should have been with Korra as opposed to Mako. Just my take on the romantic side.

BEING the avatar is stressful. I am serious. Do you think you could do better? I mean really you say she cried too much. You mean to tell me you wouldn't have done the same? The avatar is the most important job in the world and people are expecting things from her. So she is leading a hard life in a sense.

And no even if she wasn't the main I bet people would still love or like her. Alot of people hate main characters in other shows so that logic is flawed. It depends on the character not status of the character.

Aang was only twelve(mentally) and he went through so much more, yet I think he did a much better job of handling being the avatar. He didn't even want to be the avatar. Korra is very happy with being the avatar, even when she was little. Korra not having any self-control is part of why I don't like her. Tenzin is right about her needing to be patient. She hasn't had to put up with the stress of being the avatar for very long, has she? She had lived almost he entire life in the training center and didn't have any problems before that. She never had to worry about saving people before. That does make her unprepared for the stress, but most avatar's didn't find out until they were sixteen. At least she had time to prepare for it and knew something like this was coming, yet she still breaks down. No, I don't think I could have done better. Do you? Probably not. Would you want a character who reacts the same way you do to things? I don't. If Aang reacted the way most twleve year old boys would have most ofv the first season would be about Aang having nervous break down. Korra should react like a strong. powerful and confident person who spent almost he entire life preparing for those struggles, because that's what she is.

GabbyFiore said:
The biggest issue with Korra, along with many other female characters, is that she was written as a female. Male characters are written as "unisex" characters; you could apply Aang's qualities to a female, and it'd translate well. If you applied Korra's to a male, he'd come off as a girly little prissy bitch that everyone would hate.
Think about Zuko's more emo moments. It was hard to relate with him, because he was acting like a PMSing girl. When he got his shit together and did what was needed, we liked him.
The main difference, Zuko had losses. Zuko was trying to reclaim something he thought he lost, and even shrugged off his wonderful uncle Iroh.
Korra doesn't have losses. She's the Avatar, yes. And I think the only thing in her past that could be blamed was that apparently they did nothing to cultivate spirituality in her. Like they waited until she was a hormonal teen to begin that. Somehow she got through Water, Fire and Earth just fine, without learning the mystic qualities of each.

So, Korra's faults are with the writers. She's an entitled bitch whose backstory wasn't developed with enough plausibility. How is the Avatar raised with no spiritual backing? Or really, without any consideration beyond the superficial? As she seems to care only for the material, and for her own desires.
They wanted a "strong" tomboy type to appeal to superficial pseudo-feminists, and unfortunately did just that. They didn't create a properly strong female; they created a brat who'd fume when shit wasn't going her way. Korra is a girl who was raised without a care in the world, because the world was supposed to bend to her.
Conveniently, she's the Avatar of the World, it's literal living embodiment; but she acts like real girls who want the world to bend over backwards, despite just being a little self-entitled bitch.

THIS ANSWER. Wonderful! I couldn't agree with you more. We still have Book 4, and Korra still has some subtle entitlement issues. The writing isn't developing her to where she should be.

I disagree. I think if Korra was written as a guy, fewer people would have a problem with her. I like Korra fine; I think her problems are perfectly relatable and understandable and I think that - if I had met Korra in real life - I'd like her very well. She's shown a great deal of progression, I never once thought she was genuinely bratty - because brats sit around and wail and wait for the world to be handed to them on a plate. The thing about Korra? She goes out and acts on what she wants. She is prepared to work for it. Her flaws lie in her lack of patience as she believes that once you put the work into something, you ought to get something in return, and life isn't always like that (which she starts to learn, but it's still an integral part of her and is a constant struggle). Her other flaw is that what she wants is sometimes misguided or flat out the wrong thing for her; that's a natural mistake that everyone makes (Aang definitely made it several times over). Overall, I think that Korra is a perfectly fine character with plenty more thought and dimension than you give the writing team credit for. It's a matter of preference whether you like her or not, but I think you are certainly selling the writing team short with some of these complaints.

I actually don't hate her she's not my favorite character that honor goes to Tenzin at the moment but Korra has a lot of similarities to Aang t be honest whether you see them or not. On top of that yeah she is a bit over dramatic but she has hardships to. She's the AVATAR! That's a big responsibility so i think we can forgive her if she freaks ot once in awhile. I mean its obvious that Amon was only the beginning and there's alto more trouble ahead and she has to master being the avatar in bending and in spiritual wise.
So no i don't hate he but she has a lot of room for improvement. You guys should ease up its only been one season or 11episodes. You haven't given her much of a chance.

I think Korra's character sucks. To be honest, a real girl wouldn't steal another girl's boyfriend. I think Bolin would have been better for her, but she doesn't see that. At all. Which sucks.


Asami is alone now, Bolin and probably the little airbenders are her only friends.. I wouldn't expect her to forgive Mako or Korra.. :(

Have you seen the world? That would totally happen! Sadly. But I do agree that Korra and Bolin are a good match. If you've seen season 2, you know that Asami and Mako are sort of contemplating getting back together again, so I think that Bolin and Korra should go out now . . .

i understand your point,but you have 2 remeber:
KORRA IS A TEENDAGE GIRL.even tho shes da avatar, she is still a teenager and ALL teenagers will get in a "bad mood" or have mood swings.

Yes it was wrong of her 2 kiss mako,but he admitted that he liked her and in da finale he admitted that he LOVED her and vice versa.and like i said b4 all of them r teenagers (i think) and messed up stuff like than can and probably will happen in the average teenagers life.

i do feel bad for asami,but i think she truly understands mako's true feelings 4 korra.

o and last of all DOES ALL OF THIS REALLY MATTER???!!!! i mean jeez u guys r acting this is reaity t.v or based on a true story.IT IS A CARTOON ment for the entertaiment of mainly CHILDREN yes i watch and technically i AM a child cuz im only 11.by the way sum of u guys r talking, i doubt any of u r 12 or younger.and nickelodeon just made this cartoon due 2 the large demand for a sequel 2 avatar:the last airbender which they probably made TONS of money off of.nickelodeon doesnt give 34 craps wether the cartoon is "quality" or not.as long as they make money its all good.

Korra is a one of a kind avatar. Opposite of Aang. To say that she doesn't care about other peoples feelings is not true. She offered Asami a place to stay and told Mako to comfort her in her time of need despite how she feels about him. And about the kiss, she didn't like Asami at that time. She never said a word to her until the end when she thanked her and her father for their help with the team. Yes it was wrong of her to kiss Mako. She is impulsive, a problem a lot of teens have. And cartoons or tv shows don't usually make it seem that bad because they are promoting that specific couple so they make it seem so sweet ignoring the fact that he is cheating on Asami.

She apologized to Bolin for leading him on and hurting his feelings and said he was one of a kind. What more do you want? Bolin took the apology well.

Yes it is known I'm no fan of Asami. But im not one those nutjobs that says she should be killed off. She just bugged me. And yes it does look like she didn't get a happy ending losing her boyfriend, fighting with her father, forced to arrest him. But I don't think Asami took it that hard when Korra was upset about losing her bending. I do agree that they could have let her go without bending for a little longer.
Korra is impatient and all but she reminds me of Toph except for the love situation. More or less. But Korra isn't that bad

pred123 said:
Korra is not a terrible character, she may be a terrible role model (for now anyway) but she is an interesting character. Yes she is all those bad things you mentioned except weak idk how you got that. But I think if you think about how she was brought up you may see why she is that way. She was brought up but the Order of the White Lotus (OWL) since she was 4-5. She was brought up training in the art of bending which is a martial art. She was also brought up knowing she is the avatar, most avatars were told at age 16 when they are mature but Korra grew up knowing she is the most elite bender in the world and that gives her a HUGE super hero power rush. She thinks she's invincible and that nothing can touch her. She doesn't need help and that any problem can be solved by smashing though it. She is seriously messed up, and it's the OWL's fault. Every now and again you see good parts of Korra like when she gave them all a place to stay in episode 7 and when she helped find Bolin in episode 3. Also you stated that Korra was over dramatic when she lost her bending. Imagine this, she grew up knowing that she was the avatar that was all she knew. Unlike all the previous avatars they grew up as Aang or Roku or Kyoshi, and then at 16 they became Avatar with the exception of Aang. But Korra grew up thinking all she was is the Avatar she's not Korra she's Avatar Korra. So when her bending is taken away everything she thought she knew about herself was gone. Its kinda sad, she grew up her whole life thinking that all she is good for is bending, without her bending she thinks she is useless and Korra HATES being useless and defeated and weak. So before you start hating Korra think about how she was brought up. If you want to hate on anybody hate on the OWL and hope and pray they never raise another child ever again. Hopefully in the next seasons they can make Korra into a lovable and kind girl, she already is all of that underneath the shit the OWL pored on her and I hope she can break free of the OWL shit shell.

You can't blame the OWL for her personality. They didn't tell her who to be, they didn't tell her to be irresposable or big-headed Yes they told her she was the avatar, but nothing more. She chose to handle that information with a power trip, the OWL were actually trying to get her to knock it off.

Oh my God THANK YOU! I just watched Avatar: The Last Airbender for the first time, and gobbled up 3 seasons in three days. From the first 5 seconds I was charmed and delighted. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out I could continue the story in Legend of Korra...and then I watched the first few episodes.

Legend of Korra breaks my heart with how much it sucks. So far we've traded a world of breathtaking temples and smoldering volcanoes for a run of the mill sci-fy esque city. Gone are the ancient bloodlines. Earth Kings and Fire Lords given way to a centralized government and a police force and cars of all things. I feel that by modernizing everything they've sucked the soul, the spirituality right out of the show.

And then there's Korra herself. Ugh. She's a self-indulgent, spoiled, naive girl with shoulders like a line backer. And her bending is so blunt. All the bending I've seen thus far (don't even get me started on pro-bending) has been predictable, graceless swishing. In The Last Airbender the bending was always spectacular or at the very least creative. I was almost always thrown for a loop when a bender worked their element. The battles were ingenious and paced just right. Korra's bending is boring.

Anyway, I haven't seen the entire series. But after watching a few episodes I felt compelled to sniff around and see if anyone else thought the show was as awful as I did. I hope it gets better, though. I really do

I think you guys are getting a little too upset, I mean, Korra is just a fictional character, I'm not saying you have to like her, but she isn't real. I must admit I like her, but I definitly do not think she is perfect, nor do I worship her, at all. While the first season could have definitly of been better, I didn't think it was the worst thing I had ever seen. Makorra was rushed though sadly. What Id like to see in a future season is more of a realtionship develop between Asami and Korra. And no I mean a bff relationship. I think it would be awesome to see those two grow closer together and become like sisters, in my opinion that would be cool. Anyway, I think the hate can get a little overboard, for both Korra and Asami. It is just a cartoon. Plus season 2 is almost here, maybe we will see some great development in season 2? Don't give up hope yet, there is till time to see Korra get a good character deleopment and maybe just see the whole series in general get better. :) That's just what I think though, I didn't want to upset anyone, so I apologize in advance if I made anyone mad.

I totally get where you're coming from. In my personal opinion, at least from what I gather from both sides, either way, I would share the truth. At least from Korra's perspective, my thing would be.... "yes I already have a strained relationship with this other girl, but if I value this friendship and believe that honesty should come first in our friendship, then I should tell her." And from Asami's perspective, I'd think I'd want to know if my "friend" was with my "boyfriend." I wouldn't be as forgiving as Asami.....and would probably find new friends..... but I'd value their honesty. But that's just me though, and that's kind of why I'm so adamantly pissed with Korra and Mako because of this love triangle shit.
bakes2389 posted over a year ago

Which I get. I'd probably agree with you to an extent had Korra and Asami been friends during the incident. I have friends who have behaved much worse when it comes to relationships, so I really can't bring myself to hate Korra and Mako for handling an isolated incident in a poor but kind of understandable manner. Also, they haven't really focused on the love triangle since season two, and even that was pushed to the sidelines for a good chunk.

She thinks she's great because she's the avatar and she's way too childish for me, compared to Aang, who i think, was more responsible for a 12-year old boy unlike a 17-year old girl like her.... yuck....

I think you are all being too hard on Korra. First off, all of you that are saying that as the Avatar she has no right to make bad decisions think about that for a moment. Do you really want a main character that ALWAYS does the right thing and never makes mistakes. That would be boring and it would also make her a Mary Sue. I don't think the writers of Avatar: The Last Airbender could write a Mary Sue if they tried. Yes, Korra isn't as composed as Avatar Aang, but that's because she isn't Aang. In fact they are polar opposites. Aang is an air nomad and like most nomads he is composed, spiritual, and rational. Korra is water tribe; passionate impulsive and acts on her emotions. These are traits shared by the previous water tribe Avatar, Kuruk. Add to this Korras "fatal flaw", lack of self control, and the fact that she's really just your typical impulsive teenage girl. She is everything Aang wasn't and do we really want another Aang. The first series was a work of art but we've been there, done that. I personally welcome something new. If you want more of the same rewatch the original, heaven knows I have many many times.

People have also said "She doesn't have anything to cry about compared to Mako, Bolin, and Asami so what right does she have to feel sorry for herself" or "she is so immature compared to the others". Of course she immature. She's still a child. She's never had to look after for herself. She's always had someone to take care of her and mop up her messes. Of course she doesn't understand the consequences of her actions in terms of life or death just like any other teenage girl with doting, someone overprotective parents.

Bolin and particularly Mako had to grow up too fast. When there parents died they had to become adults, with all the responsibilities and concerns of real adults, in a split second, because of this they are years ahead of Korra maturity wise. The same goes for Asami coupled with the fact that Asami is one of those old souls that has always seemed older and more mature then her peers. We all know someone like that just like we all know someone who is incapable of seeing the big picture and always acts on their impulses regardless of the consequences. This doesn't make Korra a bad character it makes her a realistic character and an interesting, unpredictable character. As to weather it makes her a bad Avatar is a matter of more dispute, but I believe that that question is the backbone of this series. Aang had to become the Avatar fast in order to save the world. In the world LoK the Avatar has become less important. Do they even need this relic from the past when they can create electricity and automobiles without the help of bending? Korra needs to figure out not only who she is as a young woman but also as an Avatar for the new century.

As for her having no right to cry. Just because the most horrible thing that has ever happened to you isn't the most horrible thing that has ever happened to anyone doesn'

That's like saying that a child that loses a parent in a car crash shouldn't be aloud to cry because somewhere in the world a child has lost everything in war that killed his parents and destroyed his village. Everyone has the right to cry. One last thing, a lot of people where upset about her moping about losing most of her powers when so many people had lost all of them or in Asami's case had never had any. Many people thought that feeling sorry for herself was very selfish. This is not how I saw this scene at all. She wasnt feeling sorry for herself she was disappointed in herself for letting everyone who looked up to her as the Avatar down and ashamed that she had failed at her one true duty as the Avatar, to master all four elements. This is the first time in the series that she was thinking about the big picture and that is why she was granted the avatar state.

While she is the Avatar, and that is of great importance, that doesn't mean she can walk around like she owns everything. And Mako didn't exactly get a free pass either. While at times I felt like I could relate to the cast of TLA, I can't relate at all to the new series. At best, I relate to Bolin and Asami.

And to Kurls_Basd:
I'm pretty sure Mako was of great importance to Asami. Yes, she is responsible for keeping pace in the world, but, this isn't like TLA where there was am active war going on. Amon was defeated, and they're hinting that he died in the explosion. It might even be a key point in the next season, her getting her stupid bending back.

And just to make my point, she doesn't take anything easily.
At all. She's all just "Me me me."

I don't hate her, but i the defense of those who do; you don't have to like the main character to like the show. Naruto is an annoying character but I love the show Naruto. Harry Potter is kind of a boring character but I adore the series. They are here for the characters they do love (mine being Sato) they are here for the plot, they are here on behalf of ATLA. There are so many reasons to love the show other than the main character. And of course they know she's just a fictional character, but some people are very passionate about characters they love or not so much, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's fun and way better than fighting over more touchy things like race and religion.

I don't hate Korra... but she's not my favorite Avatar either.
Yes, she was over-dramatic when she lost her bending. But only because she felt as if she lost something that was a part of her. I mean seriously, if you had been firebending, waterbending, and earthbending for your entire life and then one day you just lost it, how would you feel?

Okay it was soooo wrong of her to kiss Mako while he was with Asami. It's not like she was doing to hurt Asami, it was just the heat of the moment. Seriously.

From what we've seen on T.V., we really don't know all that much about her past. But it does seem like she hasn't been through as much as the other characters. I semi-agree. Keep in mind, however, Korra is the Avatar. She's has the whole Republic City's safety (and the world's) on her shoulders. And Amon was practically trying to destroy her. I think this was a little too much for a teenage girl. But yes, she does cry more often than the other characters but I honestly think this has to do with being the Avatar, however and Amon (considering how scared she was of him).

Yup. I feel soooooooooooooooooo bad for Asami. She's been through so much. I hope she doesn't turn against them in the next season. But Korra's really not that bad. We wouldn't want an EXACT REPLICA of Aang now would we? Been there, done that.

Are you kidding me? Korra's awesome! Hear me out . . .

First of all, it was pretty epic when Korra unlocked her airbending. And why wouldn't she be sad? She's the Avatar! It's her job to protect the world! She needs all four elements!

And, let me just say, Mako and Korra are meant to be. Plus, you can tell that Asami's going to end up with Iroh anyway so she'll have someone to comfort her. (For the record, I DO feel really bad for Asami. Hopefully her life will get better soon.)

True, everyone else does go through a lot. But so does Korra! Wouldn't you be afraid of Amon? I would - especially if I were in Korra's situation. I mean, someone wants to take away her bending, the best weapon she can use to defend everyone, and the fate of the WORLD is resting on her shoulders. Give her a break!

I definitely don't hate Korra and I still wouldn't hate her even if she were a less-important, non-Avatar character.

Yes.... yes I do. She acts like such a spoiled brat!! Whenever something doesn't go her way, she either throws a tantrum, sulks or both. She cares about no one but herself, she's childish, big headed and just plain ANNOYING. There's nothing likable about her personality at all. She's not a nice person. She's not the only bad character, either; Mako, Bolin, Asami... none of them seem very interesting or exiting to me. Thank goodness new characters are introduced in book 2.

Korra's not the only problem with the series, though. In ATLA, the characters traveled the world. In LoK, the whole of book 1 takes place in one city. It seems... stale. Book 2 is a little better, at least, in that respect.

Also, I don't like the time period. Avatar doesn't suit having technology like microphones, cameras and cars. It feels wrong.

Can't say I hate her, since "hate" is such a strong term, but I do find her at the moment very disagreeable. when Aang said "when we are at our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change" I don't think she actually reached her "lowest point" at the end of the first season. I think for the start of book 2, and possibly throughout this book (since there's supposed to be 3 more seasons) we're meant to see her at her worst, and therefore many things about her no one will like. That way, in future books, we will actually see her Grow; not just as the Avatar, but as a person.

If you pay close attention, there are a lot of subtle clues that she was contemplating suicide at the time. After all, if she just killed herself then there would be another fully realized avatar ready to protect the world in 20 years tops. If she didn't, and continued as just an airbender then there would be no avatar for as long as 60 years, not to mention the extra 20 for the development of the next avatar. Google it, and you'll be convinced that she was at her lowest point.

My problem with LoK isn't Korras personality. I have a problem with the writing. Korra does not have any development throughout the story. She could be an amazingly good story about how she develops from a brash and selfish person to a respectable and good avatar. Instead they give here no growth. At the start of the second season she is the first episode of the series.

Unlike the LoK, ATLA was a amazing and deep story. Every major character has a lot of development. Aang started the series as a scared 12 year old who was not ready for his job as the avatar. He ends the series as a great avatar ready to take on the fire lord single handed. Sokka was the series comic relief who started the series as the loser non-bender. At the end he had a awesome "Space Sword" that he lead a raid on the fire nation capital with. I probably don't need to explain Zuko. Katara was a incompetent waterbender, but at the end she is one of the strongest characters in the series bursting with confidence. Even Azula, May, and Ty-Lee changed.

If we talk about LoK, Bolin, the comic relief started the season as a goofball and ends it as a goofball. Mako starts and ends this series as a cocky jerk who can't make his mind up between two girls. I've already said my problem about Korra. Asami who has no character comparison to ATLA might have the most development in LoK.

In conclusion LoK has a lot of potential, but it is not done well. Compared to the development of ATLA there is no comparison in any series, but LoK does not seem to make an effort.

I'm amazed at how immature she is considering she is older than Aang in his story. All these petty arguments with Mako? It makes you wonder if Aang and Katara would ever argue like that even though they were so young. And what is with her and sides?

I put up with her in Season 1 because Amon was quite interesting. But Season 2 got off to a really slow start and is only now starting to pick up speed. How predictable is it that her uncle was plotting something?

This whole show in general is less spiritual than the original. Maybe it is the writers' intentions? Since the show takes place in a more modern world? Someone went so far as calling Korra an entitled feminist type, I might have to agree. Again, maybe the writers' want to show how society has distanced itself from old values. I would be really disappointed if the show ends without Korra maturing.

Read the graphic novels, Aang and Katara did fight. She was also being negatively influenced by Unalaq. As for Mako, he spent more time complaining himself than he did trying to figure out how to help Korra.

Yeah I hate Korra. I've just watched season 2 episode 5, and she has so far shown an unbalanced desire for recognition as the Avatar, and as an adult, but continues to be an irrational hot-head with no regard for the feelings of others. I was YELLING at the TV for Mako to dump her for like 3 episodes now. She never listens to him and treats him like her's are the only and most pertinent problems while consistently ignoring digging herself further into a bad public image. I am a MALE viewer and even I can tell when the writers are being sexist. She's Self-important, irrational, overly emotional, and too attached to the physical world, she is also pushy. She throws a DESK in a police station. In a POLICE station! But I guess they can't arrest the avatar, right? especially since it's established in episode 5 that the Avatar only has PHYSICAL (and LITTLE) spiritual power, but the REAL power goes to the president of Republic City. yeah... I hate her. In the words of the old Fire Lord "even with all the power in the world, you're still weak."

She has little to no character development. She's still the brash and impulsive girl that she was at the beginning of the show. She lashes out at people even when they're being reasonable. It's irritating. I know I shouldn't compare, but...I just prefer Aang so much more. I miss him so much.

*sigh* you guys have it all wrong. Korra is not some "entitled feminist" character (not saying that it would be good if she was though...), nor is she the embodiment of all the problems of today's society. Case and point: "Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers." You may read this and say "Well that's Korra for you!" And you would be mostly right. However, take this quote into context and you'll see just how wrong your statements are. This quote is from one of the world's most famous philosophers: Socrates. Who lived thousands of years ago.

Korra is arrogant. Korra is impulsive. Korra is human. If you can't admit to having at least one of the faults Korra has, you probably put a lot of people off with how arrogant you are. Funny, isn't it? However, Korra is not self-centered. Sure, all she ever wanted to be was the avatar, if you started painting million dollar paintings at the age of four, you'd be pretty miffed if you got your hands cut off. She does, however, have a strong desire to help bring balance in any way she can. She's made mistakes, but we all do.

As for romance, have you ever heard of the "heat of the moment?" She kissed Mako because 5 minutes before, she thought he hated her, but then he confessed his feelings to her. An emotionally charged moment, highlighting the lack of foresight teenagers tend to have (shown in the timely arrival of Bolin). If anyone was at fault, it was Mako. You don't go telling someone you like them when you already have a significant other, that's just stupid. Plus Korra never dated Bolin, there's no arguing that. Maybe Bolin had a reasonable expectation that that was what was going on, but Korra was just hanging out with a friend. She may be a tomboy, but she definitely would not burp like that in front of Mako.

Long story short, Korra, Mako, Bolin, Asami: all characters that have flaws (even Asami). That is what makes it worth watching though. Kids learn how to deal with situations both by living through them and seeing how others deal with them. Korra is a much better influence on our children than most of the things out there today not to namiley any names though. Look at shows like Total Drama Island and compare them to Korra on a scale of letting your kids watch them. I guarantee you'll pick Korra

I don't hate Korra..in some ways I actually DO like her... but she is dramatic, and arrogant at times.. and a lot of the attention is focused on her because she's the avatar. and even in ATLA Aang didn't have all the attention all the time. Another thing that bothers me is that Korra isn't as spiritual as I want her to be! For ex: whenever Aang went into the avatar state-- it took time (not like a long time but a decent amount of time) and he really meditated and calmed downed and focused..Korra just uses it whenver, wherever, and however she pleases. I don't know if i'm the only one who thinks that or who else might be bothered by that..but it really bothers me.

tsmith120 said:
'I feel like was over dramatic when she lost some of her bending.'
I call bull on that. Consider this: She has spent most of her life training in these three areas. She has grown up believing that is the entirety of her existence, to be able to bend the four elements. Then in one moment, it's taken from her. All that work, years of gruelling training, and what she feels to be her very identity - gone. I don't think she was over dramatic in the least.
'Lin had a much more valid reason to cry about it, but you see her perfectly calm and composed, trying to convince Katara to keep attempting to fix Korra's bending. It's all about Korra.'
Could that be because she's the main character? Because she's the Avatar, considered vital for maintaining the peace in world? Of course not, it's because she's a terrible character who has been written terribly! That's the only logical answer! Seriously, it never occurred to you that because Korra is the main character, we see her distraught reaction in a way we don't for characters like Lin? Besides which, Lin is a different person - of course she will react differently, she's a trained police officer, tough as nails, a seasoned veteran. Korra may share some of Lin's qualities, but she hasn't had her experiences toughen her up in the same way.
'Yes, she is the avatar. No, that doesn't mean it's okay for her to kiss a boy when she is well aware he has a girlfriend.'
Er... When did anyone ever say it was? Nothing good comes from the kiss, she learns from the mistake and moves on. Why can't her haters do the same?
'Yet, Korra kisses Mako and people still love her.'
You mean to say... People may actually like characters despite the fact that they screw up, which is something ordinary people NEVER do, of course? Heresy!
'She doesn't have any tragic past to cry about. Yet out of all the characters she cries the most.'
OK, again - main character. We spend the most time with her in her most vulnerable moments, we're naturally going to see her cry more often. And secondly - and I love how few people in the fan base ever pick up on this, makes me feel so superior - did you ever consider the lack of tragic backstory and the crying may be linked? I'll explain: A person with a tragic back story understands hardship. They went through it before; they know how to deal with it better. Korra, on the other hand, has not had such an experience - as far as we are aware - that would teach her to handle such hardships in the same way. Aside from the fact that the instances of her crying have NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with her backstory, and are caused by events which we watch ourselves, we could also take from this that her relatively pain-free life has made her more vulnerable to suffering when she finally has to join the real world.

I agree that Korra is a useless avatar. For ten thousand years, everything is cool (minus the hundred year war) and Korra comes along and almost destroys the world. And after going through all the trouble of fighting Unalaq, even losing her connection to the previous Avatars, she decided to leave the portals open. Isn't that was Unalaq was doing in the first place?

I completely agree. There is virtually no point in an avatar anymore. If she's left the portals open because people need to be in tune with the spirits, then what is her job? She's basically telling everyone to deal with spirits in their own right. I also find it funny that Korra is the one avatar that has caused more trouble than actual good for the world.
bakes2389 posted over a year ago

From what I understand, the reason the Avatar kept being reincarnated was because everything was decidedly NOT cool in the world. Plus, you could make the argument that Aang running away from his destiny is what caused the hundred year war to go on as long as it did. If he hadn't, either he would have mastered the elements and stopped the war or he would have died, the cycle continued, and someone else would have saved the world.

^ Technically, Aang was only given one plot that took 4 books to rectify. They chose not to give him 4 different plots like Korra..... Korea's story jumps all over he place and just now they are trying to establish a connecting theme with them. Hell, this Kuvira problem now is a repeat of Aang's problem too. The Earth Nation wanting world domination matches what Ozai was doing for the Fire Nation.

AirRocks said:
Come on people everyone agrees that “Legend of Korra” ………SUCKS! I’m a huge “Avatar- the Last Air bender”, “the Legend of Aang” and “Aang” fan. In my own unique way I’d consider myself the biggest, the greatest and the most passionate Fan you could ever imagine for “Aang”. Please, let me clarify the reasons to hate the good for nothing, bullshitt T.V. series: - “The Legend of Korra”.
The first reason is that Korra is some stupid, headstrong, teenage bitch who thinks that she knows everything. The main reason to hate this series is that the Avatar had turned out to be a woman (female); whereas if the Avatar had turned out to be a guy it would have been much more correlated and agreeable. Now you might consider me as some gender biased, sexist idiot who thinks that females should not be given priority; but believe my words; when a female is entrusted and shown doing a task that males are good at(or meant for males), the whole task and the whole process turns out to be crap or bullshitt, for example : - Sports (nowadays sports had given priority for females, but nobody wishes to watch those matches and people don’t enjoy it the same way they enjoy watching their male counterparts play for their national teams) and doing jobs (from the early days onwards, through out the evolutionary process the female species(in this case mammals) were meant for taking care of their offspring, today nobody realizes the fact that the lack of motherly care for children and lack of feminine care for husbands had caused a huge impact on the human species). When guy gives out a harsh truth like this people speak and come up with gender inequality, but this is the dead serious truth.
*but I’m well aware that there were female avatars before Aang (avatar Kyoshi & Yang Chan), still they weren’t depicted the same way they showed the story of avatar Aang, but if there was a story that would show these females the same way they showed Korra, I’m sure the same shitty aspect would‘ve happened again. The main point is that Korra isn’t some regular average teenage girl, but some typical big breasted slutty bitch who’s after some stupid love life. This shows that this series was not meant for normal Avatar fans, but for people who’d prefer buxom bosomy sluts who’d go after men for some teenage sex life. Bolin can be considered a dim-witted nerd who tries to impress his slutty girlfriend Korra and Asami can be regarded as another slutty vamp that uses her sexual charms to attract men.
This fact ruins the whole story and the story turns out to be some typical bull shitt love story where as; in aang’s story it had a lot meaningful base and was a lot inspiring good story which consisted morale and value within the story. I sometimes wonder why these same people who made a perfect + awesome series like “Avatar the Last Air bender” had ended up creating such a horrible, sickening series like this

So do I, I hate Korra. The guy Air Rocks does seem to speak with sense bcoz nobody expected the avatar to be a pig-headed, headstrong female? True, “Air Rocks” uses some “harsh” words to give out his opinion, but still he tries to give out something sensible. If it was suppose to be that way (wilful and headstrong avatar) then the avatar should’ve been male. That way it could have been acceptable.

Another significant fact he tries to pinpoint is that Korra is totally the opposite of Aang, she is wilful, doesn’t respect other peer ideas, a lot proud about being the avatar and tries to show off that she’s the avatar; whereas on other hand Aang was a lot simple minded, humble, respectable, wise character compared to Korra. Creators or the story scripting writers had done some serious mistake creating the main character, bcoz Korra being a lot over dramatic and stubborn had caused a lot avatar fans to be disappointed whereas they would have expected a wise and down to earth avatar. I’m sure these facts make Korra a bad role modal to a lot female fans out there.

What this guy‘d said can be acceptable in a way, bcoz these days no one expects some stupid love story. The Love aspect in Legend of Korra ruins the whole story. It takes turn as “two girls fighting for one guy thing” the same lame aspect that took place in the “Twilight” series. Only thing that results from these facts is that the whole story turns out to be shit like. Even I used to be a good avatar fan until the Legend of Korra came out. It is really a disappointing and pathetic state to witness the Avatar series turning out to be a failure + being ruined like this. A lot avatar fans are dismayed (depressed) because of Korra and the fact that the story had turned out to be bad ass like.

I Don't Think She Is Over Dramatic.She's The Avatar And It's Necessary To Possess And Master All Of The Element Bendings In Her Duty To Preserve Peace And Order.Being The Avatar Was Also Korra's Biggest Life Goal From When She Was A Little Child So It's Only Natural Being Devastated From The Loss Of The Three Bendings Which She Was Trained In Her Entire Childhood.

WHY I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE LOK SERIES
1.    CHAPTER 4, THE anti-climax ENDING…So picture me, a power hungry dictator with armies at my command. After having taken over the entire Earth Kingdom and naming it the Earth Empire, I fail in my bid to take over one last stronghold and voila, the Avatar saves my life from my own doomsday weapon, brings me into the spirit world, gives me a small pep talk and JUST LIKE THAT, I SURRENDER? What kind of bone headed leader am I? Imagine, I still have my POWERFUL Bending, still have armies at my disposal, still am considered the supreme leader by my troops and all it takes is a SIMPLE PEP TALK for me to lay down all that power and rule. NO WAY! NOT IN THIS WORLD.
2.    Are you telling me Zuko learned absolutely nothing new except taming cool dragons? What’s up with Katara and Toph? There are wars going on and they just leave it to the kids. That’s both selfish and irresponsible. In ATLA, there was BUMI who gave Aang great advice and training then fought in the war himself, and he was 112 years old. There was Master Paku, Jeong Jeong, Piandau and Uncle Iroh. They were all old, and fought with amazing power and strength. Then here comes granny Toph, with more power than all the earthbenders combined, and she does absolutely nothing, while having a golden opportunity, to prevent Kuvira from perfecting her weaponry, saying we got to leave it to the kids. To me, that is just selfish, lazy and dumb.
3.    Now, here’s Korra, experiencing being blocked from entering the spirit world and who does she choose to go to? The man who earlier tried to murder her. Are you telling me that in the entire avatar world, only three people (Jinora, Zaheer and Korra) ever have the ability to meditate into the spirit world? That in itself is lame. Someone should have been able to enter the spirit world, sought the help of Uncle Iroh who should then come into the human world(multiple other spirits does it) and then help the Avatar to go into the spirit world to free her friends. She should never have to go to a convicted felon regardless of his knowledge and abilities. She had to pretty much place her life in his hands where he could have done any old thing to her spirit. I think that was pretty uncool.

The thing that made me hate her, and I'm sure other people will agree, is her first line. HER FIRST LINE. "I'm the avatar! And you gotta deal with it!" that line just made her sound obnoxious and self obsessed.
One of the first pictures when you search up 'Korra' is a picture of her looking all smug with her arms crossed. That doesn't really give a good impression. By that look on her face, you could tell she wasn't really going to be a character you would sympathise with.
When she lost her bending, everyone cared about her. Did anyone care about Lin? Nope. Lin was the one who was chief! And she was the daughter of Toph, who invented metalbending! And she gave up her bending to save Tenzin and Pema and their children, when Tenzin broke up with her! I think she should be the one getting upset, when Korra still has one bending left.
It's also annoying how she never really grows up. She stays self-centered, and doesn't get wiser like Aang does. I'm pretty sure most people just watch Legend of Korra to see the sons and daughters of the old characters.
And why did they have to name themselves the 'New' team avatar? So many things were just a rip-off from the original show.

Yes, I find Korra to be a disappointment. I really wanted to like her, but found her to a self absorbed brat. It's not about character flaws, Aang was loaded with them as well. He almost had a village wiped out because the fire nation was looking for him in the beginning of ATLA. He also threw hissy fits, but I expected that from someone his age. Through it all I found him to be a likeable character, maybe because his behavior seemed to match his age, but with a hit of maturity that didn't. Korra seems to lack that past-life hint of maturity.

Maybe, because she was marketed as a strong female lead, she couldn't live up to the hype. Not to mention if she were a guy, I would call him a self absorbed douchebaggy ass-hat so high on his own farts it's amazing he realized anyone else was on the planet. I mean, the girl was surrounded by people who have sruggled with losses and made the best of their situations, but she was upset because she only had 1 ability left after loosing 3?

It was really disappointing when they brought romance into it. Yes, she's a girl, but more importantly she's the freaking avatar. Why did it even need to be brought into the storyline so fast? The romance angle made Asami more likable and Korra seem like more of a bitch, hard to pull for a boyfriend stealer. I'm not saying Mako was a saint in all of this, he should have kept his feelings to himself, and his lips off Korra, while he was dating Asami. He was an asswipe to both Asami and Korra.

Having liked the original, I kept watching the series hoping to see her grow and develop more. Considering Korra had access to advanced knowledge practitioners well before the last avatar, it didn't seem unreasonable. They had plenty of opportunities for Korra to grow and learn as a character, but at every opportunity she had problems miraculously workout to her advantage in spite of her actions.

Unlike others, I didn't dislike the idea of pushing the story forward in history. I felt it made the statement early that this will not be a duplicate of the original ATLA. Having said that, I felt the cultural/historical points of being the avatar and honors given to certain characters, that were drilled in during the original series, were shat on in LOK.

I think this is a case of a good cartoon dragged through the manure of franchising in the name of greed.

I absolutely despise her. This is after watching the entire thing twice.
She is the anti -Aang. Petty,unintelligent, incapable of understanding anything beyond her lady-dick, arrogant conceited and completely with out qualms.
Not even Voldermort has stirred such a passionate hatred in me.
I'm done '

I literally hate Korra, she tottaly led Bolin on, and STILL kissed and flirts with Mako in front of him! HOW MESSED UP IS THAT. She totally stole Mako from Asami, and she's always exploding at everybody, and crying all the time. I'm so sick of her. Not to mention Asami when korra was kidnapped she kept saying why is Mako so worried? LIKE B***! REALLY? And another thing about korra, she ends up "talking to." in a couple way WITH EVERYONE she goes on that date with Bolin, she goes out with Mako and eventually even ASAMI!!!

I watched The Last Airbender around 2009, then again and again, several times before I gave Korra a try. Here's my experience:

- Music: The music in The Last Airbender was beautifully moving. Every theme, every instrument used, just made you get immersed in this world. In The Legend of Korra, even though the music is still very artistic, it was mostly grim and dark, as if the message in the show is 'despair, things always get worse when you grow up."

Characters: Don't even get me started. Have you ever seen a show, where the people fall in love with the characters, only to have the sequel kill your most favorite (cartoon, children) characters abruptly? With grim notes like 'When mom died (Katara) who packed up and moved in with her?" The creators definitely seem like spiritual seekers who believe in the philosophy, but it's just deceitful to their fans to abruptly kill their favorite characters or show them as really old all of a sudden. For a person who started with Korra and didn't meet ATLA, I can understand them loving the show, but as a previous fan, I can't help but feel cheaply deceived by them playing on my emotions.

Also, the characters on ATLA are all ones to love. Sokka was hilarious and lovable, Katara was caring and passionate, Aang was playful and amazing, Toph was just someone you can't resist liking. Zuko, the main villain for a large part of the show was complicated and conflicted, unlike Amon or the other Korra villains. Hell, even Appa and Momo are more lovable than the new characters.

Setting: The Last Airbender featured amazing cities and beautiful scenery, coupled with beautiful music, deep philosophy, and a riveting journey. In The Legend of Korra, we hear police sirens, we see dark, gloomy scenes all around, we see Korra kissing Asami's boyfriend like its nothing, and we see him treating his girlfriend like dirt, as if he and Korra are for some reason entitled to be jerks.

At the end, I have to put this disclaimer: The world of Korra is still beautifully drawn and animated, yet I can't help but think that while Aang and his group were a source of hope at every turn, Korra's band offers no similar sense of depth.

There were times when I'm particularly stressed out and watching The Last Airbender, I remember feeling the ups and downs of the characters, and truly listening to and thinking about the lessons put forth in the show.

The creators are people too, and we can't expect everything they do to be perfect. I have to say, however, that The Last Airbender was a perfect show, and for that, I would like to dearly thank the creators.

No, I hate Korra too. Actually I hate Korra so much... that there isn't a way to describe my hate for her yet in this world.
Reason why I fucking hate her?
Sincerely, the first and principal reason 'cause I hate her is that she exists only because Aang is dead. Her life means that Aang is dead. And I'm serious when I say that I really ADORED him. HE'S THE BEST AVATAR EVER! <3 Of course, not Korra.
Only for this I really hate her.
Another reason why I bloody hate her? She's natural in all she does. Korra never had really difficulty to governate the five elements. She never had to do anything to improve herself.
She was able to dominate all the 5 elements already from 3 yrs. Yes I started to hate her from that moment.
I have tried to watch the series without prejudices trying to control my deep hate for her... but I couldn't.
Simply I couldn't 'cause I can't stand her nor in person neither in picture!
I hate the simple fact that she exists and breaths. I have always hoped for a sequel of Avatar, but I meant a sequel of The Legend of Aang, not another Avatar.
I really wanted to lear how is proced the story after the defeat of Ozai.
And then... I see this: Aang dead and another Avatar came to replace him. Another Avatar who never had to commit to do something. She's lazy and useless for this reason, to me.
There is only a way to describes perfectly Korra: "the WORST Avatar ever".
I hate everything about her "legend" -if we can call in this way...- and for me the creators have done a really disaster, a flop with Korra.
Personally I think I've never hate a characther as I hate Korra. She would never be existed, in the first place.
And... guess? I never hate a main character before, or like, Korra... this says a lot to me.
Fortunately I'm not the only person who hates her. Thank God because she's a really disaster and the others have noticed it.
I repeat once again: she never have be existed/created.
Well done, creators, you are able to ruin and besmirch: "Avatar: the legend of Aang".
Well done, really...!
I have no word to describe how much I'm really disgusted for the "legend" of Korra. What then... Legend? What fucking legend are you talking about? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
If I had too similar -and I am not talking of the divine skills of Avatar skills but of its annoying skills omniscience and super Learning-as Korra save the world would be a breeze! Easy, is not it? hahahaha
Legend? Her? HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
But... for heaven sake! Make me the favor, please!

The only thing about her I hate (I haven't seen a lot of the show) is that she blames everyone else. She puts her frustrations on other people. I don't mind her impulsive anger too much because that's just her personality, that who she is. I just can't stand her blaming everyone else.
