Watched it on Nick.com. Should be taking pony's place until season 2. Which isn't such a bad thing, considering Avatar was a good show. Element Bending + Steam Punk = License for Awesome.

Edit: Huh, was the same site after all.

Seeing the modern looking cities makes me wonder how much time has passed.

I saw a single picture rumoring this sometime last year, but a video of a Water Tribe member bending fire is awesome lol. I just hope it'll be of the quality of the original series and not the crap that the live-action movie was.

The setting for the story is approximately 80 years since the end of The Last Airbender. I'll put some of the rest in spoilers since I'm not sure how early it will be introduced in the show, though I expect fairly early since they've told people already.

The story takes place primarily in one city, which is the major metropolis of the world. Aang is obviously dead, and it is assumed he will help guide Korra from the spirit world as others guided Aang. Aang and Katara ended up marrying and had a child who will be possibly a mentor for Korra and he is likely an airbender and the one who will teach her airbending. Korra has so far learned all the elements except airbending.

Yea I've been waiting for this series for a while now (I think it was last year when they [Nick] teased with photos and what not).

There is a wiki page for anyone who wants more info Smiley: grin

Woot! Love this series. Hopefully it's as good or better than the first. That's cool that they are tying in offspring of the first shows characters.

Is it just me, or is 80 years not quite enough time for so many huge cities to be built. Granted, I'm only like 20 episodes into the first series, but last I knew only the Fire Nation and Earth Nation had any real cities left at this point. Weren't the Water tribes down to like 6 people, collectively?

The Water Benders were split between a Northern Water Tribe and a Southern Water Tribe, and only the Air Benders were really gone. The Fire Nation was already using steam technology before Aang was even iced, and by the end of the series Toph had discovered Metal Bending, which according to the info out there she goes around teaching other people. The end of the war and with resource sharing between all the nations it wouldn't be difficult to advance technology leaps and bounds.

Also, just a cartoon.

Well, I dunno who Toph is.

But is the avatar supposed to know metal bending now as well?

Can't really explain what it is without major spoilers, but the long and short of it is no, an avatar doesn't need to learn it, but it certainly couldn't hurt either.

And Toph is awesome personified.

Also, as I stated before in my spoiler section, The setting for the new series is in primarily a single city, which is the largest metropolis of the world. That explains why it looks so developed compared to the countryside we mostly saw 80 years ago.

As for metal bending, it isn't really a separate bending skill. It is a subset of earth bending just as lightning redirection can be accomplished with firebending and waterbending can do healing.

Yes. Which makes him like 112 in the cartoon.

Toph vs B. Toph. Chicks blind, and sees with her feet. Everything King B would do would give off some kind of ground wave and she would totally feel it Smiley: tongue

This.

I think she's as badass as the rest of Team Avatar combined in most situations.

I was actually thinking about earthbending today and a lot of the techniques seem very similar to steel pushing and iron pulling.

It's not really the same. Steel pushing and iron pulling are really just that. Pushing and pulling. Nothing like the full control and shaping ability you see in Avatar.

(massive bonus points for the Mistborn reference though)

So I watched a few more episodes of the first series. On the one hand, the characters are likable and the animation is decent. On the other hand, this story is moving waaaay too slowly. It's a bunch of largely unrelated segments that barely manage to actually progress anything.

It's getting tiring--I wanna see some interesting bending, dammit. Kitara's slow water bending progress isn't cutting it, and Aang hasn't used any new airbending tricks in a while. I'm surviving on a supply of cute jokes and adorable animals. Which, while enjoyable, is really holding me back from finding this show as being something particularly special. Though I'll HAPPILY grant that it's one of the best american animes available. Actually, it might be the only thing American made that I'd be willing to even call an anime.

On another note. Koala otters are awesome.

I find it somewhat depressing that the character I always relate to is the one who is always beat up. :(

C'mon, it's not Sokka's fault he's a realist!
