Come on, who doesn't love the original Avatar?

I am aware of the Legend of Korra thread, but I could not seem to find a thread for the original series. I'm surprised and angered by you, Animeforum Western Animation forum! For shame!

On a serious note, i've only seen up to Chapter 6 of Book 2, and hope to see the rest very soon. So far, my favorite moment is... Well, I don't remember the episode name, but it had a psychic named Aunt Wu and a servant named Ling who had a crush on Aang. The whole second half of the episode is pure awesome: they manage to convince the town the volcano's gonna blow, and then when it does AANG KICKS THE LAVA'S BUTT. It also helps it's one of the Kataang episodes :3

Speaking of Kataang, this thread can also cover shipping, if you like. As long as everyone remains civil and always keeps a focus on the original show, there shouldn't be any problems.

Avatar is probably the best thing to come out of Nickelodeon.
Azula's always been my favorite.

Though Tai Lee's really got a lot going for her...

I love Avatar, and can't wait for the Legend of Korra. Too bad the new series is only going to be 12 episodes long, unless it gets good ratings. :P Anyways, Avatar is amazing - and another plus, its fanbase is mostly sane. My favorite episode is either the one that introduces Bloodbending, the one where Aang and friends meet the one dude that sings the Secret Tunnel song, or the one where the group is lost in the desert and Sokka gets high from some cacti. xD


Azula's always been my favorite.

Yesss. *brofist* Azula is amazing. ♥ And cute.

The series was amazing... I hate that M. Night Shamalan directed the movie; he's a suspense director, and made Sokka WAY too serious.

They just came out with a graphic novel of a continuation of the series after the cartoon ended. Avatar fans should check it out!
Hands down the best cartoon I've ever seen; I fealt ashamed of downloading it (which doesn't happen often), so I went on eBay and bought the entire seires.

I love the show. I have seen it many times, and will always be a fan. Its been a long time since I watched it though. I have not really had a chance to check out much on Legend of Korra, though I do plan to soon.

I really love Avatar... It's the best western animation I've seen so far. :D The story and plot is really very interesting, and there is never a dull episode for me. :3
Zuko is my fave character coz he's so freakin' awesome! >.< Momo is real cute too!

Avatards represent!! o3o

I can't wait for LoK; it's premiering early, by the way (March 24th). So far, Bolin is my favourite character of the new series, but as for the original A:TLA, it probably has to be either Smellerbee or Toph :3
I ship them, you know :}D

The best "Western" cartoon i have ever seen. I never finished it but it was my favorite show for a while! I like the girl who was blind and could do earth bending: So sick! X )

I love Toph. She's my favorite.

And really, this fandom is the most sane?! I've seen ATLA fans on Tumblr complaining about how it's the worst fandom and then a week later they're like 'wow we're the best fandom ever'... Mood swings much? xD There also seems to be some sort of war going on with people who ship canon couples and people who ship fanon couples. I haven't run into any of those types of people but they sound scary...

My favorite is Sokka. I like the comic relief supporting characters.
Book 2, Earth was my favorite part of the series. Maybe because I like the earth kingdom.

Pretty good show. I like the fact it actually has a sort of anime look about it, including even how some of the characters have that "animeish" appearance.

04-22-2012, 03:13 AM
my favorite would have to be Sokka and May. If this were to be considered an anime, I'd honestly id rank it in my top 2 with Eureka Seven.

I love Avatar I was obsessed with it for the longest time and I still love it! I think I have seen every episode at least 4 or 5 times haha
Sokka and Momo are my faves haha
HATED the live action movie -__- it was atrocious!!

Sokka: What is that?
Aang: This is Appa, my flying Bison.
Sokka: Riiight and this is Katara, my flying sister.

Hahahaha still my favorite quote!

Avatar was a great show I've watched and rewatched that show multiple times. I would have to say that Aang and Zuko are my favorite characters because you see how their destinies are intertwined and how in the end they both need each other more than either of them realize. Show was 10/10!!!!!!:D

Avatar the Last Airbender is a show of amazing feats. It is created by those that work for Nickelodeon, and is based on Asian cultures for it's style of artwork, costumes, and characters, and settings, plot, music, and many other aspects within the show. The show has perfect characterization, each individual character is completely unique and has the ability to invoke emotion into the audience. This is also done by the help of the amazing color scheme of the show, the background music, and the voice acting. This is much more than a show, it is a novel. We are not shown a new character and then we know everything about that character but instead shown a new character and then we get to see how they develop not only physically but also mentally. Very few shows have that in them. I own the entire series on DVD, and I defiantly (I hope that word is right) recommend it to anyone.

Yes it was (70 years after that is).

second paragraph from the top.

The new series takes place seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc

I love Toph. She's my favorite.

And really, this fandom is the most sane?! I've seen ATLA fans on Tumblr complaining about how it's the worst fandom and then a week later they're like 'wow we're the best fandom ever'... Mood swings much? xD

Why do they complain about it?


There also seems to be some sort of war going on with people who ship canon couples and people who ship fanon couples. I haven't run into any of those types of people but they sound scary...

I ship pretty much all fandoms myself, lol. I guess Im not that picky when it comes to things like these... ~ ship all the ships! xD I have also seen some complaining about some of the "couples" but seriously speaking, I don't get either why people complain so much *joins the crowd of complaining*. It's a fact that everyone doesn't have the same taste and besides; the more fandom and shipping there is (no matter which people they are shipping) the more pictures is there to see on tumblr and such! :-D And Jesus Christ, shipping or not.... Even if it was a while since I did watch that first show I can still sit and laugh so hard to those pictures that people are posting. I love fandom! Especially the Avatar fandom is one of my favorites, so why are people complaining about it?? Q-Q I demand an answer!

Lol, since we are talking about the fandom here (since you like Toph);

Zuko still wants to know what happened to his mom

Essentially, Anime = Animation. The Cartoons you know and love = animation. BUT not all cartoons are animated, ie: your comics section in the news paper, yes the funny pages, all contain comic strips which are cartoons as well.


EITHER WAY!!!!


Let's get back on topic, shall we?


Have any of y'all seen a box set containing all the books/seasons for ATLA? or are they still selling them by the books/seasons?

I don't know if anyone's paid attention in the comic book world, but IDW is running an Avatar: the Last Airbender series. I've just picked up two hardcover trades and there's possibly a third coming out too. They take place right after the events of the show, with Zuko now being the Fire Lord, Aang trying to restore peace and harmony across all nations, and Toph starting to teach metal bending at her newly founded school. The first trade is The Promise and the second is The Search.


In The Promise starts off with Zuko, Aang, and Katara, trying to bring peace and harmony back to the nations by removing the Fire Nation colonies out of Earth Nation territory, an sending them all back to the Fire Nation. Problems arise though as Yu Dao (the oldest of the colonies) fights to stay, not only as a colony, but also as a mix of Fire and Earth nation due to many Fire and Earth benders becoming friends and family over the years. Because of Yu Dao's attempts to stay and with Fire Lord Zuko's support, the Earth Nation decides to take over Yu Dao by force. Could this re-ignite the war between Fire and Earth Nations?


In The Search, Zuko seeks answers to the whereabouts of his mother. So he gathers Aang, Katara, and Sokka, as well as Azula in order to learn what happened to his mother. But with Azula being insane, what will she do when she finds their mother?


Yes, I've already read them and know the answers to these questions. Just want to entice you to read them. ;P


I must say, as an avid fan of the series and Legend of Korra, I really enjoy the work they've put into the books. They're dead on with the show, and the artwork is just like we remember it. Both books are 238 pages of content, including 12 pages of art sketches and design work for the trade. And I can't really wait for the next one. -fangirls-

Here's a snipit.

Fine. is there any reason for Korra and Asami not to date? I'd have already written their wedding, but I'm waiting until the end of Season 4 lest one of them be killed off.

DeathBlade/13.666
11-05-2014, 01:43 AM
Because there's more to the show than just your ships. Also because Korra and Asami don't EXIST in Avatar: the Last Airbender. They only exist in the second part of the Avatar franchise through Legend of Korra.
