Product Description

The fifth volume of Nickelodeon’s hit series Avatar is available on DVD September 19th! Avatar: The Last Airbender Book 1: Water - Volume 5, contains 4 more exciting episodes filled with love, loss, hope and a fierce battle with the Fire Nation (episodes 17 through 20).

Chapters 17 through 20 of Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 1 Water, Vol. 5 find Aang, the 12-year-old Avatar destined to bring peace to the world by mastering the four elements, once again in direct collision with the forces of the Fire nation. In "The Northern Air Temple," a sad Aang visits the ruins of a monastery well known to him in his past life. Aang is shocked to discover a tribe of faux Airbenders living there, presided over by an inventor with a dark and even treacherous secret. "The Waterbending Master" introduces Aang to a mentor he would just as soon avoid: an old Waterbender who can teach him to move, shape, and fight with liquid, prerequisites to Aang assuming his place as the world’s savior. Meanwhile, Aang's traveling companion Katara is frustrated by that same master’s refusal to sharpen her own natural, Waterbending talent; until, that is, an unexpected link between them becomes clear. (Aang's other friend, Sokka, stays busy--and crazy--chasing a princess who gives him mixed signals about her romantic interest.) "The Siege of the North, Parts 1 and 2" is yet another epic confrontation between Admiral Zhao's Fire Navy fleet and the Aang gang. The twist this time is that Zhao attempts the murder of Prince Zuko, an action that cannot go without consequences. As usual, Avatar is visually exciting and highly original, an otherworldly yet fully accessible fantasy full of dreams and good humor. --Tom Keogh

Avatar: The Last Airbender is a great cartoon. While it may appear to be a "anime" type cartoon at first glance, it is in fact made entirely in the US, and is based on Chinese Martial Arts. The character voices are engaging and believable. The plot is not too outlandish and it is a cartoon that is actually telling a story, a new chapter with each episode.

The best thing that I like about the show is that the main character, Aang, the Avatar, is not a hero who is without flaws and is ultra powerful. Aang is a 12 year old who loves to play games, and visit exotic locals to see and capture strange animals. He is a goofy kid who is growing into the world's most important role: that of Avatar. He is not angst ridden nor is he fool hearted. He is a normal boy that all ages can relate to, not only boys but girls as well. No matter what the markerters say, the "Target audience" for this show extends to much more than boys, but to girls, teens, and even adults.

Another great thing about this series is that if you are familiar with Kung Fu, and other Chinese martial arts, you will realize that this cartoon is ACCURATE. Water benders use traditional tai chi moves. Fire benders use northern shaolin kung fu to manipulate fire. Earth benders use a more southern tradition of kung fu and Air benders use bagwa, a flexible form of martial arts. Those that are interested in Kung fu and other Chinese martial arts will enjoy a cartoon that IS ACTUALLY BASED ON TRADIONAL FORMS AND MYTHOLOGY AND HISTORY. A story rooted in reality is all the more enjoyable.

I love this show and the episodes are very re-watchable and are worth owning and watching again and again.

I was doubtful about this show in the beginning- but after the first two episodes I was hooked. This is hands down the best show currently running on Nickelodeon. The animation is good, but reaches its highest point during the fight scenes- the pacing is spot on and the movements often fluid.

Another highlight of the show is the characters- all of them are well-rounded and developed. Even the antagonist has a backstory and motives.

And don't let the Asian inspiration repel you- this show isn't just "American animation trying to be anime."

I have too much to say about "Avatar" to fit it into a reasonably sized review, so let's just leave it at this: Buy it. Now.

I got into this show when I was flipping channels and watched the pilot episode. Since then, I look forward to watching it every time it comes on. For what the Nick studios has to offer, this is probably one of the most original shows ever. The characters are wonderful and interesting to follow. The plot line does remind you of the old kung-fu movies but it has this ancient parallel universe to it where the whole world is comprised of Chinese-based characters and legends. I recommend this for the entire family. It gets you hooked from beginning to end.

This finished my entire collection of ATLA, having watched it since the first episode came out, I've loved it, as my family has. In the 5th volume, they go to an air temple, meet the new inhabitants, & fight off the fire nation. Then they go to the Northern water tribe to learn water ending from a master. The master refuses to teach Katara water ending due to that she's a girl, and through her standing up & challenging him, she learns from him & quickly advances through the class. The fire nation attacks again, with the intention to kill the moon spirit. Iroh & zuko steal away on the main ship after an attempt on zukos life. Zuko grabs aang while he's in the spirit world and takes him to a cave, where they attempt to wait out a blizzard. Sokka, Katara, & Sokkas first girlfriend who turns into the moon, go find them. Upon returning to where the moon & ocean spirit are, the admiral kills the moon spirit, rendering the waterbenders defenseless. Aang soon goes into the avatar state, defeating the fire nation, only stopping when noticing the moon has returned to normal. The princess gave up her life, since the moon gave her life, and bam that's how Sokkas first girlfriend turned into the moon.

If there ever was a gut blasting, action packed season finale then this, my friend is it. from The beutiful scenery of the northern water tribe, to the splendor of the northern air temple to the final showdown between Zhao and Zuko. this DvD has it all. The first season goes out with a bang here because there is tons of emotions and the promise of the next season is super. in this DVD the episodes are:

1. The Northern Air temple- Aang hears stories of airbendrs around the temple, and goes to check it out.

2. The Waterbending Master- The crew finally gets to the northern tribe and Aang/katara lear waterbebding(Zuko almost dies in pirate attack)

Zhao A

3. siege of the North part 1- Zhao attacks the north tribe, Aang tries to contact the spirits to help him and Zuko finally captures Aang.

4. siege of the north part 2- Zhoa has a crazy evil plan to kill... AND Aang escapes from Zuko and uses his new powers to...

This DVD sets the 2cnd season up perfectly, but you should probably watch all previous DVD before watching. ALRIGHT DUDES!!see you next season!
