The Facts are These:
Six months after the events of Book 1, Avatar Korra is travelling to the Southern Water Tribe to attend the Glacier Festival when a rogue spirit attacks her. Korra needs to learn how to quell these rogue spirits and save the world from them.
The Legend of Korra season 2 is not as enjoyable as the first, the story is not as strong as the first season. I enjoyed that they were bringing in more elements of the creation of the Avatar (they do this mostly through an amazing two parter) and the main big bad guy is the anti avatar, which is basically the devil. What I do like is what we see of the spirit world in avatar. The avatar was always meant to keep the peace between the two worlds (the spirit world and human world) and the nations. For the previous seasons we have only delved lightly into the spirit world and now we go balls deep out of nowhere. Which is a great thing we can understand more about the world of Avatar and how the spirits are and work (because most spirits we have seen so far were jackasses). Though my problem is with the big villain,,, THE DEVIL, how do you progress after that. You can’t really have another villain after the devil. The only way they can go is to fight maybe space devil… I don’t know, but I did not like the villain.
Behind the Scenes:
The series was created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. The show was produced by Nickelodeon and the animation was done by two studios Studio Mir (The Legend of Korra and The Boondocks) and Studio Pierrot (Yu Yu Hakusho, Bleach, Naruto and Beelezebub). For the first 7 episodes of the series was animated by Studio Pierrot after Studio Mir turned down animating Season 2 to animate the less heavy series Boondocks. They decided to reanimate the show after they asked again by Nickelodeon. Being afraid that Korean animation studios would be tarnished for Studio Pierrot blunder they came back.
A Brief View of the World:
The world of Avatar is different that our own with some people depending on from which nation they are from can control the elements Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. This series takes a different turn and shows us the world before the current world where spirits and human used to live together, though not in harmony. By the end of the season the spirit realm and the physical realm merge and now both spirits and humans live together.
I did not enjoy this season as much as I did the previous one, however there were two episodes I enjoyed immensely, the introduction to the first avatar. The animation was amazing and it could have been it’s own TV movie. Overall the season was okay compared to previous avatar seasons.
This season is as rewatchable as other, depending on whether you like this season or avatar in general. The big aspect I would recommend other rewatch would be the Avatar Wan segment, that was awesome and deserves another watch.
Avatar the Last Airbender – To watch another Avatar show for comparison.
Teen Titans – For a good teenage Superhero show.
