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.
Anyways, you all are horrible, @#%^ed up people
Never underestimate the healing power of a massive dong.
