Did you notice her airbending was closer to firebending without the fire? Seriously, it's far more aggressive and less fluid than most airbending, meaning she still has more to learn.
User avatar #38 to #1 - guitarguise (06/25/2012) [-]
honestly what I didn't like so much about LOK is that all the fighting by the younger people looked like boxing. I know that's what the tournament fights were based off of, but even outside of the rink. It wasn't as beautiful, artistic, and fluid as TLAB's fighting. TLAB usually had flowing movement, even from Toph, and the bending seemed to come out as a force of nature. Now in LOK it seems more like bursts of elements shooting out of fists. Consequently the moves seem less powerful.

Those are my two cents on the subject

Well these are alot more modern times.
You have to take into account bending morphing to fit the culture.
People aren't as much into the real spirit of bending anymore.
They want it to work, and they want it to work fast.

lightning bending is still cool though. Its still the same motions
#13 to #1 - InfernalOneShot (06/24/2012) [-]
It looked ridiculously cool though. Like punching through the sound barrier

Well considering it was her first time actually bending it, I think it's fair to give her a break. That, and I think for that first strike she was trying to use a fire blast, and she just ended up airbending instead.
User avatar #94 to #4 - joedlicious (06/25/2012) [-]
my theory is that (i dont know if you remember in the beginning of the show when she was trying to learn air bending, i dont know who said but someone told her that she has to feel love and not anger like firebending in order to airbend.. maybe im confusing something else because i cant remember exactly when...) but whatever, so i think when amon was about to take makos bending, she felt love and it triggered her ability to bend..... or maybe im just an idiot.
User avatar #127 to #94 - qazxswedcvfrt (06/25/2012) [-]
I don't remember them saying that in LOK at any point, but I could be mistaken. You have a good point though, since in A:TLA Zuko had a lot of trouble firebending once he switched sides since all of his energy had come from anger before. Which was why he had to find the sun warrior tribe, etc. So her emotional state probably had a lot to do with it too.
User avatar #133 to #127 - joedlicious (06/26/2012) [-]
yeah that makes sense, then i dont know where i heard that...

Guys what if Korra can only use all 4 elements only in the Avatar State, and other than that she can only Airbend

It was never outright stated to be Avatar stuff. It could have just been spiritual stuff, in which case Patik has it covered.

To all the people saying "hurr durr hed be ded" Guru Pathik was around 150 years old when he trained Aang and he was in perfect health. He could definitely have lived another 70 years.

User avatar #65 - icetre (06/25/2012) [-]
I was personally somewhat disappointed with it. She never really learned patience and I didnt really see here truly connect to her spiritual side. I just happened with no provocation, meditation or even a truly significant spiritual event. And at the end, how did she just enter the avatar state at will to restore Lin's bending. Aang didnt learn that until after the whole guru thing.
User avatar #68 to #65 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
well the writers were like " **** having a plot lets just have aang teach her how to energybend"

Ehh fair enough. They missed out on quite an opportunity with that one though.
I wonder what they are going to put in for the next book then. (Book 2: Energy)
User avatar #72 to #70 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
i think shes going to return everyones bending and possibly try to convince people bending isnt evil and now since she can energy bend she might possible "give" people bending but i guess you could say unlock their bending
#96 to #65 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
It is never said if she willingly entered the avatar state.
You don't need to be in the avatar state to energybend
Aang learned energy bending from the giant lion-turtle
Aang learned how to willingly go into (master)the avatar state from the guru, which took the opening of all chakras. It is possible she unknowingly opened all the chakras, except the last one. That would be why she only needed to "let go" of her beloved bending. Or **** me, maybe she didn't master the ******* avatar state.
User avatar #89 to #65 - ivoryhammer (06/25/2012) [-]
I think they should've kept her bending gone and spent the next season of her trying to regain it. Would've made the ending more bittersweet

It wouldn't have worked like that.

Korra's "connection" with the other three elements were completely severed, as Katara said. She couldn't have mastered them again if she wanted to, because she wouldn't ever have the ability to bend water/earth/fire again.
User avatar #117 - conantheviking (06/25/2012) [-]
Many people are complaining about the fact that Korra simply had her bending-abilities granted back to her with Energybending, rather than have her go through the whole process of learning it again.
But how could she learn her bending again when her connection to bending was "severed?" Amon didn't make her forget her bending, he literally removed her entire ability, beyond conventional healing.
The only way Korra could get back her bending would be from non-conventional means, such as Energybending.
User avatar #118 to #117 - InfernalOneShot (06/25/2012) [-]
I know, but people like to bitch and whine (look at the complaining posts on the front page haha)
User avatar #119 to #117 - fuzzyballs (06/25/2012) [-]
so can non-benders be made into benders? since people say the original benders were animals, and they learned from them
User avatar #135 to #119 - Furubatsu (06/28/2012) [-]
not only that but apparently it has something to do with ones chakra and how in tune you are with spirits and ****
hence why the air nomads were all air benders, becasue there monks and connect with the world thorugh meditation, so; it isnt unlikely that they could
User avatar #134 to #117 - mathmatical (06/26/2012) [-]
my problem was missing the journy to master air element and connect FULLY to her spiritual side. then, and only then, should she have had it reconnected to her.
User avatar #122 to #117 - shiningfinger (06/25/2012) [-]
My question is: Can she use energy bending to give non-benders bending?
What about using it to connect them to new elements? Or increase their natural bending ability?
#42 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
noticed that roku is the only old avatar, because he died as an old man, but why are the other ones middle aged.. did aang died 'young'??
User avatar #46 to #42 - pureoz (06/25/2012) [-]
I think that the avatars' spirit forms are when they were at their prime. Example, Aang at 40
User avatar #60 to #46 - ilovetocuddle (06/25/2012) [-]
well kyoshi was over 200 years old. and she looks 30 up there. Your idea had merit sir.
#86 to #60 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
As far as I've been able to tell, she used Energy bending, of a sort, to retain her healthy / youthful looks, and live an incredibly long time. However, the reason any of them appear the way they do is because it is how they choose to be represented. Often, it is the appearance of where they felt they were in their prime, agewise.
User avatar #22 - burnitall (06/25/2012) [-]
I was hoping she would have to go to 3 spiritual places to get her bending back.
User avatar #23 to #22 - thejokerxx (06/25/2012) [-]
would have been boss and she could have meet Koh because she said to Aang they would meet again
#7 - anon (06/24/2012) [-]
Why is Roku so ******* old?

and Aang not so elderly like?
User avatar #9 to #7 - kamehamehanurd (06/24/2012) [-]
Aang did die early. He was 50 - 60 years old.
#11 to #9 - JustaPeek (06/24/2012) [-]
What the **** ? He was stuck in an iceberg for 100 years.
User avatar #12 to #11 - kamehamehanurd (06/24/2012) [-]
But his physical age. Years he spent, well you know. Actually aging.
User avatar #10 to #7 - InfernalOneShot (06/24/2012) [-]
I think it's to do with when they are most content. Kyoshi is a young lady in her incarnations
#20 to #10 - vwgreen (06/25/2012) [-]
Actually Kyoshi looked that young most of her 230 year life. I think this was hinted in the Avatar Day episode of ATLA.

But yeah you're probably right about the content thing.

i just watched it and i hated this ending. she just got her bending back like it was no big 			*******		 deal, i literaly didn't have time to feel anything, not sadness or anger or even happy. i was just left with what the hell tv show why wont you slow the 			****		 down a bit. that and the whole amon thing. you think maybe you could have saved his identity for later instead of having some lame character tell you who he is and is whole 			*******		 back story in under 3 minutes?? rant over.

#61 to #59 - irishlawyer (06/25/2012) [-]
the point was her connecting to her spiritual side...
User avatar #69 to #61 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
by crying....yeah thats deep real deep
#84 to #69 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
You do realize that she was contemplating suicide, right? With her bending blocked, she felt like she could no longer help the world, as the Avatar. Hence, Aang coming in, and discussing her "lowest point." The rabbit hole goes a lot deeper than you'd think.
User avatar #85 to #84 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
yes exactly thats what she was doing
#87 to #85 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
You have to admit, that's a bit deeper than just "crying" >.> She had a profound existential crisis, that's about as spiritual as you're going to get.

As for the whole Amon thing / slowing down bit. When they made the season, they weren't going to have a second one. By the time it had been approved for a second one, given that it was an episode or two in, and how long it takes to make episodes, 11 and 12 were probably already in production. Much too late to slow it down, and move it to season 2. Given this, you have to admit, as a self-contained season, with a Nickelodeon-decreed episode limit, it was fantastic.
User avatar #88 to #87 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
no it was not fantastic it was good but i cant give it the title of fantastic
#73 to #69 - irishlawyer (06/25/2012) [-]
well, as aang said, its when they reach their lowest point is when they connect most, and when she cried was like aang losing appa, seeing gyastos dead body, etc.
User avatar #74 to #73 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
yeah but it really was super rushed it was like oh cool she connected and then it was like okay here lets skip a bunch of stuff that would have been good story line and just give her bending back no training no nothing just here go **** all you
#75 to #74 - irishlawyer (06/25/2012) [-]
i can tell you really don't care and is still going to watch the show when it continues
which is exactly why the creators didn't mind rushing it a bit
User avatar #77 to #75 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
yeah i will but idk it was just disappointing[greenish-gray][greenish-gray] is all
#97 to #59 - smeissisafagisafag (06/25/2012) [-]
Was i the only one who got a feel when the bloodbrothers died?
I thought that was the most impressive scene in the entire season.

Its just the two of us now brother, like it always have been..


Boom
User avatar #129 to #97 - mathmatical (06/25/2012) [-]
i barely had time to feel a real connection between the brothers. it would have been more heart breaking if they spent more time on their real relationship. and it seemed almost lazy too. i really like amon too, he was cool and finding out who he was really killed it for me. its like finding out who V was in V for Vendetta. keeping his identity a mystery (somewhat) was what made me love the movie
User avatar #100 to #59 - artisticotaku (06/25/2012) [-]
Thank you someone else (people above you in the comments understood too) but dude you just explained all my feels that i tried explaining to my one friend and he said "well shes different and thats why she got all her bending" wtf i swear i NEVER heard anyone get all their bending back just like THAT. if aang couldnt do it when there was a FRICKIN WAR going on, why did she get hers so fast when they basically had defeated the bad guy and she still never really learned patience?...anyway, i loved your comment.

TL;DR Television = **** logic and i loved this mathmatical's comment
User avatar #128 to #100 - mathmatical (06/25/2012) [-]
well thank you sir im just trying to make sense of it all
User avatar #131 to #128 - artisticotaku (06/25/2012) [-]
You're welcome and it's actually ma'am but hey eff it, you can even call me dude also bro XD lol and well I would like to thank you for actually making sense/logic unlike the mindless people that are all "hurr durr well she's a different avatar, and her situation is different from aangs so you just gotta understand that"...I just realized, this just shows that even in tv shows, a girl will get special treatment because she has boobs, lol jkjk XD but yeah enough of my ranting...again...it just really grinds my gears lol. oh and you are very welcome to make sense dude, anytime! :D
#78 to #59 - thehollow (06/25/2012) [-]
The creators wrote this season originally without the intention for a second season. Which they just finished writing. And still it felt like it was the end of the series, i thought it was fantasically done, don't worry book two will be epic
User avatar #2 - tacobadger (06/24/2012) [-]
if Korra discovers a new kind of airbending doesnt that mean they have to shave her head for the tattoo
#3 to #2 - shadoward (06/24/2012) [-]
that's an airbender thing, shes from the water tribe, she does not follow that nations teachings, just the bending styles.

It was kinda a copout to give everyone their bending back. I hate "everything's back to normal" endings. It would have been cool to have her re-learn the other elements, especially considering that she had already learned them when the show began. They wouldn't have to spend an entire season on it, but it would at least provide some conflict going into the next season instead of having to invent a new villian/problem to deal with.
User avatar #54 - drkilliwiggles (06/25/2012) [-]
When she lost her bending i thought she only had to relearn the bending, because right after she lost it, she could airbend. She never fully learned airbending, so I thought she had finally learned it, can someone explain why she could still airbend?
User avatar #55 to #54 - galgawine (06/25/2012) [-]
When she got her bending taken away, she couldn't airbend. It was right after that when she learned to airbend. So when Amon took away her bending, there wasn't any airbending to take away.
User avatar #71 to #55 - crazyhindu (06/25/2012) [-]
you know i thought maybe since amon didnt know about her airbending he didnt take it away and kind of like a mini avatar state type deal her body then unlocked airbending to protect herself kind of like adrenaline but your explanation sounds more reasonable
User avatar #57 to #55 - drkilliwiggles (06/25/2012) [-]
ok, I see, thanks
User avatar #58 to #57 - galgawine (06/25/2012) [-]
np, just hope I cleared it up some for you ;)
#81 - anon (06/25/2012) [-]
Just to point it out for those of you who don't understand, it was her admission of grief, her allowing herself to cry over all she'd lost to that point, that was her connecting to her spirit self. Yes, it was rushed. Yes, it was extremely fast paced, but so was that entire chapter. But if you have to put it in terms of the original Avatar series, it's like Aang proclaiming he can't earth bend then he can suddenly. Korra gained her ability to air bend because she no longer had the other elements that she could connect to blocking her mentally and spiritually. Again, rushed. But who gives a damn, it wasn't a bad chapter in a new series. Get over it and stop crying.
