Legend of Korra Book 2 - DO NOT WANT

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 21, 2013, 6:14 AM


Its rare that I find myself wishing that we as fans of series do NOT get more of something, but after a very VERY bad reboot of Avatar, the last airbender in Korra the schizophrenic love triangulating bitch who came out a year or two ago, I'm just not hyped to see more. Let me be more clear:

I do not want to see this. I don't know anyone that wants to see this. I haven't met any fans of Avatar: TLA that want more of Korra.


Korra lacked any import, she was a side character in her own series. The series was too short to tell any sort of meaningful story or experience real character development. She was never in any real danger, not with all the drooling slack-jawed male half-wits competing over who will get to bang the avatar willing to die for her at EVERY opportunity. Then in the final episode, bam! Suddenly all holes plugged, literally, superpowers attained as if by plot convenience, suddenly spirit powers go!, and 'i luv u forevar korra!' 

Yeah, no. Fuck no. Hell no. DiaF.  

PS: Nickleodeon, its very telling that you've disabled comments on your trailer video.

"I do not want to see this. I don't know anyone that wants to see this. I haven't met any fans of Avatar: TLA that want more of Korra."

Um, where on this planet Earth have you been dwelling on? I've yet to meet a single soul who's watched LOK and isn't ecstatic for more. Of course, it's perfectly fine not to like this show, but claiming that you haven't seen a SINGLE person who isn't the least bit excited? "I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man."

"PS: Nickleodeon, its very telling that you've disabled comments on your trailer video"

Actually, it doesn't. ALL but one of videos on that channel have the comments disabled and a good half of them also have the like/dislike ratings disabled. Also, look at the trailer's like bar. It's arguably the most liked video on that channel. Them having the comments disabled out of your suggested hate doesn't really make any sense.

I haven't met a single person out of all the people I know and knew that had watched Avatar: TLA that want more of Korra. I don't consider social media a proper means to know people or meet them. So no, coming across the zero Korra fansites that I've never visited (that I'm sure exist) and the many many 'shipping tumblrfag sites that I also never cared to go looking for don't really count as people I know. So while I'm sure that there is a militantly vocal, yet small number of people who cluster together on various fan pages/sites to express feelings of over-saturated joy over the news, amongst the people I have met and can count, no one wants more of Korra and her many overly dramatic relationship problems. 

I find the disabling of comments to be a show of bad faith regardless of who's channels are involved. Also, sure its the most viewed video on that channel. Of course it is, there's only 11 videos...and half of them didn't exist when I posted this journal. And most of those are ultra short crappy interview snips from comic con. Not exactly awesome content compared to the single biggest announcement trailer for Nickelodeon in over a year.

I for one would love to see the new part of Legend of Korra. Sure, the original LoK was supposed to only be a mini-series (hence the rushed relationships and overall plot), but it shows that some fans took a liking to it. They want another chapter to the Avatar series, especially after that bad M. Night movie (didn't watch it since no one around me wants me to experience its horror...) and people want a definite conclusion to what happened to Zuko's mom and the rest of the TLA crew. It's cool if you don't want to see it coming out. It's just a cartoon so, I hope you're not too upset over it... I'll respect your opinion nonetheless~

Well, you and your friends and maybe some third party might not want Korra. But there's still a lot of people who do want Korra... :iconpachuuplz:

I think you'll find quite a lot of people think that Korra's the best thing that happened to Avatar next to M. Night Shyamalan. That doesn't mean they're right.

Oh no, I think the fandom as a whole can agree that the M. Night Shyamalan movie was a bust. (Even my grandmother, who loves TLA, but has been out of the country to not see Korra yet, disliked the movie.) And to them, they're right that Korra was a great step up from Mr. Shyamalan. Just like you're right for your own opinion on this.

Actually there are a lot of people who want this...look at tumblr. There are also a lot of people on tumblr who do not want this, and that's fine. They don't have to watch it. You don't have to watch it. Is there any reason to bitch and whine because they're choosing to cater to the fans who DO enjoy the series? Good lord.

Also, Tumblr is not a good excuse for anything. That's like saying that the 'shippers are wetting their pants over this new season. Whoopdyfuck

Yeah, because it sucks, and they aren't doing anything to actually improve anything or the writing or the pacing. That's quite a bit that's a valid reason to complain. Its more of the same, would you like another Shyamalan movie plz. Its going to be more exploring Korra's sexuality, more e-drama, vagina worshiping bullshit. Ooo, its the Spirit Realm (TM)! How about money down now, that Korra will get a new boyfriend (FB) who at the end turns out to be the shape changing face stealer from the real Avatar series? Because he showed up in the first series, and sequelitus tells us that if it was in the first one, it needs to be in the second. Also, because we have a female protagonist, that means sexuality strife, because why waste a perfectly good opportunity to have more teenage angst?
