102-A Leaf in the Wind
« on: November 11, 2012, 09:16:34 AM »
Frustrated with her failed attempts to master airbending on Air Temple Island, Korra disobeys her teacher, Tenzin, and shifts her focus to Republic City's famous Pro-bending Arena. There, she befriends the brothers Mako and Bolin, who compete in professional bending matches. The Avatar is immediately drawn to pro-bending's dynamic fighting style

Doug, again, you should've reviewed this along with the first considering they were released together. Now that I thought of it, Air does seem to fit Korra as her opposite and that the most difficult element should be the one opposite to the Avatar's personality. If you really think about it, Aang had more trouble with fire than with earth. The Pro-Bending I liked at first, though I admit that I was afraid that it would  take up the majority of the series. Thank God it didn't. I think I knew right off the bat here that Makorra would be canon.

First appearances of Mako and Bolin did not disappoint!! :D (well, if it wasn't for Mako being so harsh on Korra... :P)
One of the best episodes of Book 1.

"How do you solve a problem like a Kor-raaaaa?"
"How do you catch a cloud and pin it dowwwwwn?"

Well, not that Legend of Korra ever turned into a musical (although that'd be an interesting thought), but I'd lay money that Tenzin had a thought or two along those lines during this episode.

And a few others.  XD

On that note, Meelo must have been an incredible handful to train.  And for that matter, it makes me wonder how Tenzin did get around to training Ikki and Meelo.  I mean, Jinora I get; her firstborn seriousness helped her and helped Tenzin get things across to her very well.  Ikki and Meelo... oil and water, I would say.  Another fanfic plotbunny.  Hm.

As far as that is concerned and not to speak ill of Tenzin, but I wonder if Jinora might have made more progress with Korra.  Just a thought.  I think Jinora might have been able to connect better with Korra here, as we learned later on.  Ah, well.

Also, I'm still a fan of Korrasami and Bopal, but I really think Borra would have been interesting, and good for both of them.  I also have to say I still really like the way Bolin started out--as opposed to how he turned out.

"Being the Avatar isn't all about fighting, Korra!" said Tenzin.  "When will you learn that?"  Very good question.  Certainly I asked it for a few seasons.
