Legend of Korra, I Pick You! [Part 1]


Three years ago when I first saw Legend of Korra with all the posters and trailers, I was intrigued mainly because we seldom get cartoons that feature female heroins. You could argue that anime has a lot of them but think about it, which of them isn't sexualised, or for the sake of fan service. 

So Legend of Korra actually stands out a lot being particularly unique because not only the main character is a young, athletic female, she is not a white and by the western animation standard, it's a pretty risky move. I know Disney produces many movies with female as their main characters but they are all always damsels in distress whereas Korra is different, instead of being saved, she is doing the saving. I mean the idea is getting old and I am pretty tired of the media representation when it comes to females and always portraying them as weak beings that need to be rescued. It's time to show something different in the cartoon televisions!

And that's how I started watching Legend of Korra. You should try it out! :)


  1. The Korra series has its good and bad for me; I wonder if that's due to its circumstances during / between production of each season. I feel seasons 1 and 4 are the best for me.

    I've the feeling you haven't watched the prequel "Avatar: The Last Airbender" series. I highly recommend it if you haven't already.

    1. I admit that i have never watched the prequel because when I came to know about the series. it was through that movie, which really sucked and that immediately destroyed my interest in in the cartoon series as well. LOL! I think I would pick it up next time when I have the time since LOK was quite a good job!
