The Legend of Korra


I’ll start off by saying that I never really watched the Avatar series that proceeded this – I actually tried quite a few years ago, sampling the first couple of episodes, but I just wasn’t into it. I have a hard time with shows/movies from the west that rely heavily on Asian influences, as it usually always comes off as cheesy and just a weird mishmash. Yes, this in particular is fantasy, but I still got that vibe initially. But I saw The Legend of Korra (spinoff series to Avatar) pop up on Netflix, and since I’d heard good things about it I decided to give it a try. I’ve watched about 4 episodes now, and although it’s not blowing my mind (my favorite anime series right now is AJIN, also on Netflix), I’m finding it quite enjoyable, and I have a feeling that it’s going to keep getting better as the story progresses. We’ll see how I feel once I’m done with the first season, but it’s also making me want to give Avatar another try.
