Love It
Verified purchase
As a 25 year old woman, I grew up on the original ATLA and it took me a while to come to terms with a new avatar. Once I moved past the nostalgia and opened myself up to LOK I was hooked immediately.

I've read other reviews comparing the two and for me it comes down to a few simple things:
This is a DIFFERENT avatar. Just how I can appreciate Aang for always trying to remain peaceful and balanced, I can also appreciate Korra for her hotheadedness. Fact is she is in a world that does not need an avatar and its refreshing to see her character develop throughout the series. (Honestly I would love to see a 3rd series with Avatar Kyoshi which would be a completely different story arch too!) Seriously though, how many times do we want to see the same regurgitated story line where a character has it completely together, knows their purpose and how to accomplish it? This makes the difference with LOK and why I enjoy watching it.

Next, the supporting characters that make up Team Avatar are not master benders. There shouldn't even be an argument here. ATLA Katara was a master after book 1 and Toph is just a bamf from the very beginning. For LOK we aren't dealing with that at all. So sure we can't expect kick ass bending but again, its for taking it for what it is. I feel like LOK makes up with that some seriously awesome fighting sequences.

BOTTOM LINE: I love ATLA, the comic series and LOK. Fans who love the original, who can appreciative 2 different characters with 2 different journeys will love this show as well. It still is it the best animated programming I have ever come across.

Nice change-up; Well written
Verified purchase
Shaking my head as I read the negative reviews. Outside of the imbecilic reviews regarding the packaging or quality of the DVD (save that for the merchant, not the series) I'm noticing a trend of people comparing this series to The Last Airbender originals.

Let's move on people.

I understand that Korra comes across as a self-entitled brat. She is. But don't you understand? A good character, driven by good writing, grows and develops and changes. Be patient as Korra moves into a more mature person... it makes her personality more believable.

The relationship between Bolin and Eska was surprisingly entertaining. The transition away from familiar settings (Republic City, Air Temples, etc.) was a great move.

Appreciate the details people!

Scripted family entertainment doesn't get any better than this!
Verified purchase
Following in the footsteps of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "The Legend of Korra" does not disappoint. Writing is terrific, with a great mix of humor and depth. Character development is some of the best I've seen on any show, animated or otherwise. The pacing is so well done, it feels like the story could have been drawn directly from real life. Production value is very high -- beautiful drawing and animation and spot-on voice active. We watch this together as a family (mom, dad, and two pre-teen boys), and we each love it. For fans of the original show, there are just enough shout-outs to make you feel like an insider. To those new to this universe, you don't need to have watched the originals first -- but you'll want to go back and do so for the fun of it! For everyone, there is plenty of new material here, and it does not feel at all like a simple retread of the the original show. Cannot recommend this highly enough, especially for families to watch, enjoy, and discuss together.

4.5 Stars rounded up to five. Epic Avatar back story!
Verified purchase
This is so hard to rate because I really do love it, and the story is excellent, but the first few episodes were stupidly predictable although still entertaining. After the seventh episode I simply couldn't stop watching. They made some really cool changes with the animation for episodes 7 and 8 as they fill in the back story of the very first Avatar.
I feel like there are always some details that get skipped over, like the fact that Korra had mastery of all four elements and yet she is still easily overpowered by a water bender. And the evolution of technology has baffled me since the first season. I feel like there's a lot of details missing from Aang's adult life.

We get more exposure to Tenzin's awesome siblings. General Iroh, on the other hand only showed up for a minute, maybe two at most, for the whole season. The whole Korra Mako relationship is a mess. In fact, Korra's character in general is a mess. She's so hot headed and rash to the point that she deserves to get beat up for all of her stupid decisions. Bolin is entertaining, and there are plenty of characters who bring comic relief to this season, but I still miss Sokka.
Overall, there are a lot of great elements to this season, but as much as I love it, I don't think it reaches the same 5 star level as Avatar: The Last Airbender. I had this same struggle when rating the first session, and I think I caved and gave it 5 stars, because really these are like 9.5 stars on a 10-point scale and just don't merit a mere 4 stars on a 5-point scale. So 4.5 stars rounded up to five

welcome to the spirit realm
Verified purchase
The are many good elements in book 2 of legend of Korra that I missed having never watched it on TV just from DVD set. Team Avatar trip to the south pole festival winds up with Korra divided with her loyalty between family and Avatar duty during the north and south water tribe civil war. The book also has Korra meeting General Iro of the fire nation whose relationship to Zuko become obvious by not only looks but having old series Zuko voice actor for him. It is also nice that when Korra takes her first trip into the spirit world she comes across Zuko disease uncle and is invited to the type of tea party he was famous for in the last air bender series while Aang's grand daughter trip to the spirit world winds up in the spirit library Aang first introduce to use in the original series. I believe that the book title SPIRITS have a duel meaning as it not only focus on the spirit world and Korra trying to get spiritual balance but its a test of Korra spirit trying to choose sides between her parents and her northen tribe uncle. the set tells the origin of the first Avatar and how Korra to become the last Avatar in the battle against the dark Avatar.

Second Book of the Legend!
Verified purchase
This season is let's say interesting some people love it others hate it, in it we will learn the origins of the Avatar and Korra's recklessness causes a civil war between the two Water Tribes... and with it she unleashes an ancient evil that could cause the destruction of the world. We get to know more about the Spirits and the Spirit World and for better or worse Korra will lose a part of herself forever and must rise to bring peace again while reaching her spiritual side to become a complete Avatar and join the spirits and human world once again.

A lot of people dislike this season because of the animation is done by two different studios, the first half of the book are done by Studio Pierrot and the second half are done by Studio Mir, the same which made the first season, some subplots are not as interesting but we get to know new characters like the eccentric millionare Varrick and his assistant Zhu Li, the villian in this season is the weakest in personality of all the books, but it's interesting to know more about the mythology about the Avatar Spirit and the ancient fight between light and darkness.

The Last Air Bender's adventures continue and are more grown up
Verified purchase
I'm reviewing The Legend of Korra in a general way, and not so specific to just the second season. My kids loved The Last Airbender, the animated series if not the movie. The Legend of Korra continues in the oddly parallel universe about 50 years later. The setting is parallel in technology to the early 20th Century. For all parents who engage in viewing media with their kids, Korra is a wonderful break. Both my 7 and 10-year-old love the show (boy & girl), and it has enough of a plot to hold the interest of an adult (well, a fiction-loving adult anyway). It is one of the few shows we all like to watch together, and it brings up concepts that spark conversations about social equality, politics, and justice. It does this in a way that allows you to address these issues as abstracts and not specific to historic events (i.e. they address equality as it relates to benders (magic) and non-benders (non-magic) people, and not as gender or race equality). It's full of good adventure and action without getting too violent. I'm sure it will capture the interest of teens and young adults as well. Give the series a shot if you haven't already.

Decent Story, Animation Terrible!
Verified purchase
Compared to the other seasons of LoK, this one stands out in a very bad way. For some reason, the animation got bad. Like really bad.

Many of the keyframes maintain the quality of the other seasons, but the in-betweens, especially in the non-action sequences, are downright atrocious.

I don't know who they outsourced the tweening to, but it does at least improve slightly halfway through the season, but it makes the first half difficult to watch for anyone who notices that kind of thing.

Season 2 can mostly be skipped though, as it has the weakest story of the four seasons. It takes place over less than a year (from season 1) and season 3 is just a 3 week timeskip. Just watch from episode 7 onward and you'll get most of the info you need to keep track of who's who and what happened to them.
