Avatar - The Last Airbender: The Complete Series
After a lapse of 100 years, the Avatar-spiritual master of the elements-has returned. And just in the nick of time. The Four Nations (Water, Earth, Fire, and Air) have become unbalanced. The Fire Nation wants to rule the world, and its first conquest will be the Northern Water Tribe. It's up to a 12-year-old boy Airbender named Aang to find a way to stop it.

In case you haven't noticed this review is for the recently released avatar the last airbender blu ray set. What the hell took them so long? The legend of kora has been on blu ray for a while now.... All well we have it now so it doesn't matter. Lets get into the review!
We all know the story of the last airbender by now, I don't really have to repeat it. It's a fantastic journey were the boy Aang goes on to learn the rest of the 3 elements so that he can save the world from the fire nation. The slip cover looks amazing and the art cover for the blu ray case looks fantastic. Really well done compared to the legend of kora blu ray set, even though I wish it also had an artbook like the legend of kora blu ray set because I do indeed like the artwork of the avatar series.
Some technical features are that the picture is in a 4×3 size hence the black bars to the side. I guess it makes sense that they didn't want to stretch the picture due to the old animation originaly made to fit tv screens. I'm not complaing seeing as I own other old animes on blu rays with that aspect raito like yu yu hakasho.
It's 3 disks per book. Book water being on disk one, two and three, Book earth being on disk four, five and six, the final book, the Book fire being on disk seven, eight and nine. It's has 1 disk more than the legend of kora blu ray being 4 hours longer than legend of kora which is quite a big difference.
The whole runtime is 1464 minutes which in simple terms is 24 hours and 14 minutes long. This doesn't touch the fact that on how long the special features are.... That's a lot of watch time... That's even more runtime than a 51 episode anime series. If you think your going to watch this in a day? That would be physically impossible... It's something that it can take you more than a week to watch if anything. Even a 25 episode animes that's quite a lot to watch in one sitting... So if your are wondering if this is your bang for your buck, yes it is...
Special Features Include: The Making of Avatar Featuretts, Original Uncut Animattic "Bato of the Water Tribe", Original Uncut Animattic", Behind the Scenes with the Avatar Cast & Crew, Avatar Super Deformed Shorts, Into the Fire Nation at San Diego Comic-Con, The Women of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" as well as even more Featuretts, Audio Commentaries and More. Thats a lot of special features right there, pretty sure most of them were on on the previous dvds just ported over to the blu ray set.
The picture looks better than ever even with the black bars on the side, the technicolor gives it better color, Audio is dts-HD Master Audio and Dolby Audio, it sounds great for only 2.0 audio, though should be 5.1 audio like the legend of kora... Still it looks great on blu ray, even though it's older textures still being there.
Conclusion? This is one of the best blu ray purchases I have made in a LONG time. The price alone is fantastic for so many episodes! If this wasn't a cartoon but an anime then the price would probably be nearly over 100 dollers! For only 29.99 plus tax? This is a steal! Go buy it right now.
I also recommend buying the legend of kora blu ray set.
I've attached two photos: one from the box set and one from streaming on Amazon. If you look closely you might be able to see the double-line blur on the box set image. Looks fine when streaming on Amazon though. You'd think they could fix this... But I guess they just want to get rid of old stock by repackaging it.
First thing I should clear up because Amazon puts the DVD reviews in with the Blu-ray for some strange reason: The "double-line" issues of Book One's first disc has been FIXED! That alone made it worth it to me. There are times when the animation itself is wonky, but this show is 13 years old now and wasn't made with HD quality so .
Naturally, it still also has the full screen aspect ratio (black bars on the side), but that's to be expected. Just wanted to put that out there if that bothers anyone.
The box is nice and didn't arrive broken. I like the two different covers on the sleeve and on the case itself. I wish there was a bit more "artfullness" to the inside and the discs themselves, as they all look the same. I recommend everyone making sure they have all the right numbered discs when you buy it, just in case.
I bought it for $30 and it is worth it. That comes out to $10 a season. Considering a few years ago, people were trying to sell all the DVD Sets for $60-100+ on eBay, you might as well get the Blu-Ray
