I'd like to nitpick about jumping from ancient Chinese architecture to 21st century skyscrapers in a single generation, but I'm too busy squealing with delight.

Hey Shyamalan, you keep your grubby hands off this, hear me? I swear, I will cut you.

Cena_mark
This might wash the shame of Shaymalan right off.

ProfessorChaos
Ba Tsing Se was already pretty huge.... so was Omashu. Just sayin.

Cena_mark
Think of the Avatar world as just having had their WW2. This is just the progress that follows such a huge war. It isn't too far fetched considering the changes our world has had in the years following it.

IrishWhiskey
Ba Tsing Se and Omashu were big, but mostly primitive earthen homes with no glass windows or steel frames. The only reason the Earth kingdom had any grand architecture is because of their earth-bending. The sudden appearance of huge cities of skyscrapers and a technological revolution is ridiculous, unless they somehow invented metal-bending, and it's not like anyone... uh...

Okay, if the explanation involves the spread of Toph's discovery with now cooperative Fire Nation lightning-benders to create a steel and electric revolution, I will be impressed.

GravidWithHate
The fire nation seemed to have a late 19th century level of tech, just going by their military equipment. Supposedly this is a 70 year time skip from the end of the last series, so the setting is rather plausible.

Also, does it remind anyone else of Vancouver?

Cena_mark
Irish, well Zuko was ushering an age of cooperation and rebuilding at the end of the first series.

Caminante Nocturno
Dude, spoiler alert!

voodoo_pork
You know you guys are arguing about a FUCKING CARTOON, RIGHT?!

IrishWhiskey
No, voodoo pork. Avatar was a documentary, and its events were filmed in real time.

Xenocide
There's more than one Airbender now. Your title is a filthy lie, Nickelodeon. Why not just call it Avatar: The Legend of Korra?

But I guess James Cameron has pretty much locked up all use of the word "Avatar" on the planet Earth for the next decade or so, so what can you do. My heart goes out to any franchise that has to choose between referencing James Cameron or M. Night Shamalan in its title. That is some Sophie's Choice shit right there.

The Most Recent Avatar: The Legend of Korra

takewithfood
Also, there is still only one airbender.

Sundry
We don't really know how many kids Aang had. But going by MY fanfic, at least 15. With Zuko.

Xenocide
Kora is the Avatar, so she can airbend. Her teacher is going to be Aang's son, also an Airbender.

"There Are at Least Two Airbenders, Possibly More if Aang Slept Around, Which I Bet He Did Cause Come On, He Was Really Famous and Chicks Are Into That: The Legend of Korra."

Caminante Nocturno
The Airbender of Indeterminate Chronological Occurrence: The Legend of Kūkaku Shiba.

I mean Korra.

takewithfood
Korra is impressive. Most impressive. But she's not an airbender yet.

Sundry
I think it is fitting because the first part of the story seems to include Korra searching for The Last Airbender to teach her.

RocketBlender
Maybe they just want to get away from the title avatar after... you know...

Aoi
Cameron trademarked "Avatar". Despite the first cartoon series coming out well before his movie did. So they aren't using it in the title. They could probably win if they challenged it in a court case, but the gains simply wouldn't outpace the costs involved.

The moral of the story is that Cameron is a petulant bratty dick.

dairyqueenlatifah
Oh joy, more "LOOK SEE KIDS WE INTENTIONALLY POORLY ANIMATED THIS TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE JAPS MADE IT, TOTALLY COOL" bullshit.

Teen Titans and Totally Spies, eat your heart out.
Caminante Nocturno
Gettin' angry at cartoons.

That being said, it looks like the Avatar series isn't going to stop shamelessly ripping off Bleach.

IrishWhiskey
I just did a quick wiki search, and Avatar started airing only a just three months after Bleach did, which doesn't give them a lot of time to 'shamelessly rip off' your anime thingy. I suppose it's possible they could have read the 'manga', but it's unlikely, given that the creators are adults with relationships and jobs.

The insult doesn't have to make sense, you just have to deserve it.

Xenocide
Avatar had the most consistently great animation of any television cartoon since Batman: The Animated Series. You are fat.

Caminante: I like the gratuitous Spanish in Bleach, and Rukia. Unfortunately there is nothing else to like about Bleach.

Cena_mark
Don't one star this Caminante. This is one cartoon you should actually watch.

dairyqueenlatifah
You must have issues with your vision if you would call anything about Avatar's animation "consistent". Don't believe me? Go ahead, open an episode of Avatar in Virtualdub or any other video editing software, and just step frame by frame...it's awful.

Also, completely pushing the poor animation aside, there's the grossly limited color palate and those hideous big, shiny eyed, line for mouth except for when it's opened gigantic character designs. They did everything they could to make it look like low budget anime.

That being said, Mr. Xenocide, I am indeed fat, but that has absolutely no bearing on my dismay for this piece of crap franchise.

Writing this much about Avatar is a new personal low for me though, I'll give you that.

Caminante Nocturno
Avatar fans are basically otaku who are too dense/scared to admit it. They exaggerate the show's quality, mostly to pretend that the 'best' cartoon to come out of America had to copy its art and plot almost entirely from boilerplate anime.

dancingshadow
Yeah... I used to like avatar until I stepped through it frame by frame. Now I realize it totally sucked.

It's usually not possible to make me hear a noise when reading comments online, but I distinctly heard the sound of two cunts slapping together when I read your comments, odd.

HotwaxNinjaPanther
I get angry at things without taking character development and plot into consideration.

Honestly, if the animation was the only interesting part of the series, all of its fans would be no more than ten years old.

Cena_mark
What the hell. You seriously expect us to take a Brony's cartoon criticism seriously?

Macho Nacho
Hey guys, didn't you know that you're supposed to judge an animated series based solely off it's frame rate?

Fuck character and plot development, who gives a shit about that?

Xenocide
Uh huh. When I say "fat," I don't mean heavy-fat. I mean grasping-for-excuses-to-hate-a-cartoon-because-it's-popular-fat.

This is an important distinction. It's the reason why people loved Dom Deluise but no one wants to touch your local comic book store owner, even though I have it on good authority that both men weigh EXACTLY AS MUCH.

And anyway, the art style on Avatar has at least as much in common with 90's Disney as it does with anime.
Caminante Nocturno
Dom DeLouise has certainly lost a significant amount of weight by now.

themilkshark
I'm just glad it's not Shyamalan-related. I think that movie killed his Hollywood career.
Dread Pirate Roberts
Don't count on it.

WHO WANTS DESSERT
I am a grown-ass man and I am going to watch this cartoon for children and love it, because it is great.
Cena_mark
This cartoon isn't for children, its for people of all ages.

Caminante Nocturno
At least until those people of all ages graduate to something more mature, like actual anime.

Cena_mark
Anime is like anything else. Theirs crap and then there is decent stuff within that crap. You can't go around saying that anime is inherently better than western animation.

FABIO
Shaymalan's move just came on Netflix instant and I tried watching out of morbid curiosity.

Even after seeing clips on it on youtube, it still didn't prepare me for how awful it was. Half the scenes are completely flat, and the ones that aren't flat are a bunch of horribly disjointed (first) takes slapped together. Who in the world looked at Shaymalan and decided he'd be perfect for a big budget action adventure?


Endless laughing at "Avatar sucks when you analyze it frame by frame in video editing software!"


gmol
I've never seen an episode of the series on TV, it just looked too anime-wannabe. This looks pretty damn cool though.
Caminante Nocturno
That's exactly what it is, and it's more annoying fans' desperate attempts to claim otherwise is really effective at making it seem even more unappealing.

Cena_mark
Weeaboos hate American Animation styled like anime for some irrational reason. Probably because we do it better.

FABIO
I'm sure you could find thousands of weeaboos who LOVED this show until they found out it was made by Americans.

Weird. It was coming up as removed on copyright grounds, so I submitted a replacement. Now it's working again.
