Did anyone NOT see that breakup coming?
Fuck Korra, all of season 2 (and near the end of Seaso 1) she’s been a pain. Shes thinks everyone is against her but the only person who is truly against her is herself. She takes everything personal and really hurts everyone who loves her. She is too immature to deserve a boyfriend, let alone be the avatar. On the same note, Mako ruined the mission, Team avatar’s only intention to returning to Republic City…so I can understand her anger. While we are on the subject of Mako..he is a terrible person. Falling in love with Asami because of her good looks and then breaking her heart and his brothers by stealing Korra from Bolin after he fell in love with her because of her personality. He doesn’t deserve her just as much and she doesn’t deserve him.
First off, have you ever been a teenage girl before? You think the world’s against you A LOT of the time. Everyone’s the bad guy and you get mad at the drop of a hat while struggling to understand your place in the world and how you affect it. Korra is in the same exact boat right now. She’s trying to find her place, and on top of that she’s the Avatar. That will make things worse. The Avatar has to be the bridge between the spirit world and the living world, has to master all four bending techniques, and act as a mediator between clashing parties, using the tools best suited to bring peace. Aside from that, the people that love her have kept her from becoming her own person because they feel they’ve been doing what they think is best for her.
Being a budding adult it’s hard to prove that you make a difference, that you’re mature enough to handle adult situations without parental supervision or guidance. At 17, you think you can do everything and no one should be there to hold your hand. You’re independent. At the same time, Korra still has a lot to learn and experiences to be had. She needs to take the time to grow up some. As a native from the Southern Water tribe, Korra has the spirit of a warrior. She attacks things head-on and doesn’t prefer to take a more passive approach, like Aang. The two are vastly different people and their personalities reflect that. Those surrounding her want her to be more like Aang and what they’re doing is impossible. Filling someone’s shoes is completely different than making the person be exactly like their predecessor. You might as well make a clone. Keeping the Avatar shielded while raising her and training her will only work for so long, and even then will sow seeds of resentment.
As for Mako, Mako is doing the absolute best he can and feels overwhelmed by the power of being so close to the Avatar. He probably feels helpless because he doesn’t know what to do or how to help. Plus girlfriends are very complex creatures. Period. That never helps. He needs time to grow up as well. Aside from Asami, Korra is Mako’s first girlfriend, as he is her first boyfriend. Not all first relationships work out well. He is not necessarily a bad person. There is a lack of development, yes, but that doesn’t make him bad. As things stand right now, a relationship might not be a good idea.
Oh, and for the record, since it seems you can’t stand Korra or Mako, or anything else that’s been going on, make it easier on yourself and stop watching.
Holy shit, you guys just created a new level of intellectual debates about Korra.
Who cares if he/she is a teenage girl C.T…that doesn’t matter. Your making it seem like Korra’s actions are justified because she is a teenage girl, and that is how they all teenage girls act . Not every teenage girl behaves like Korra. And judging from your comment, I infer that you are one of those teenage girls that do.
Oh, and for the record.. just because he/she doesn’t like the way Korra and Mako’s relationship is being developed, doesn’t mean he/she has to stop watching the show.
When someone’s review of the way a show is being developed doesn’t match with yours, you jump on the opportunity to attack. Just chill out and realize that not everyone is a teenage girl who watches this show, so there is bound to be people who dislike certain aspects of this show.
The whole damn plot of this is really Korra is against Herself.
Is this a essay? It’s a CARTOON, bloody hell.
Taking thing head on, non-passive, risky behavior, and hot temper. I don’t think you mean teenage girl as a whole but this is strictly Korra as an individual.
Also to the initial comment, Korra is not the same as Aang, the authors even emphasize that part very very well even from season 1. Remember how air bending is the only thing she had a hard time with? Air is more relax, passive, and deflect, Korra is the opposite of it. If you have to ask me, she had more of an earth bender/ fire bender characteristics.
Lastly, this is a freaking cartoon, the people who created ATLA are also the one who created LoK. So stop comparing them, they are fictional characters (what could be more obvious?)
This would be the longest comments section I could possibly see if not for youtube debates
about PS v.s. XBOX
C.T. Aang was young and immature yet he always saw the bigger picture, he was never selfish (except once) and always put the welfare of others above his own, he respected his elders and took the opinions of others into consideration before making decisions….korra is a spoiled self entitled brat. she treated Mako like shit the entire season and is surprised when he breaks up with her….
So, basically, you’re saying Korra is being a little bitch right XD
Congrats. You just ranted at a cartoon character
i think everyone saw it coming……
I’ll be honest: i thought they’d drag it out for a few more episodes. At least pretend like it wasn’t a foregone conclusion that they’re gonna reset Korra’s entire character…
Omd can you not spoil stuff?
Yeah realised I shouldnt ever look in the comments whilst waiting for the video to load anymore, bub.
I am the only one who happy to see it coming? Darn the korrasami fans must be overjoy in this episode. I am not a makosami person. If anything, Bolin and Asami could even make a better pair.
Fuck Korra, all of season 2 (and near the end of Season 1) she’s been a pain. Shes thinks everyone is against her but the only person who is truly against her is herself. She takes everything personal and really hurts everyone who loves her. She is too immature to deserve a boyfriend, let alone be the avatar.

when does the next episode come out?
when do you think that episode 6 will be on the internet like according to the clock. if you dont know just say right out you dont know
cant wait for the next episode, just hope its more epic than this. this was like its just an answer to up how things will end up…… i guess (sorry if u did not understand a sh!!!t about that…. it tends to happen that people dont understand me)
I hate the voice of Zuko being used for his own son. Its so trivial ….
Good for you, no one cares.
Oh My God!!!!!! Why Why Why !!! Of course I didn´t wanted to see that one coming…it was sooo obvious but I hoped that they lasted at least a little longer ;(
everyone worrying about their relationship but seriously did korra just die?
if she did then there would be a new avatar and they would just end the season in 5 episodes so im guessing no
of course not, they wouldn’t end it like that.
I cant believe this show is still so terrible after the first season. i supported this shit, bought the dvd because i was sure it will get better after season 1.
And even though some storybits and this funny rich dudes make this kind of entertaining, it still sucks as a whole. Korra and mako are terrible characters. they get anti character development lol.
its just shit bring back aang i can rewatch that shit endlessly but korra..nope
shut up there teens there supposed to have problems aang and katara had it easy they were kids who liked each other they werent teens they didnt have normal problems like korra and mako do
i just love korra for me i just enjoy the drama as it unfolds
omg finaly someone i can agree with
YES! Thank You. Finally.
Zuko’s voice actor!
I hate the voice of Zuko being used for his own son. Its so trivial
It’s his grandson…
There is a difference.
Iroh is Zuko’s grandson. Keep up.
OMG ZUKO’S VOICE
DAMN I MISS THAT BADASS
She kicked over a table at his job and is constantly questioning him then is shocked he’s breaking up with her?!
Tenzin: I created a monster!!!!! ROFL!!!
Does anybody else think Korra is a little on the bipolar side?
I can’t help but think that Aang wouldn’t have went down that fast.
LOL! lin said flameo from last airbender!
What’s forgotten a lot is that Korra was essentially secluded away for training. Lack of proper socialisation can result in a lot of the issues that you can see in Korra. She’s not inherently a bad kid, nor someone with ‘daddy issues’, she is just inexperienced with the world and hence naive when dealing with people who shroud their motives. She is immature, and that’s not necessarily her own fault, she just has absolutely zero experience dealing with some things that could very well be seen as normal by us, the audience, because her developmental conditions are so different.
Her anger can be understood from the view point that she’s now experienced a world where people don’t tend to be shackled down, and she has been shackled to her training her whole life. She wants that freedom that she’s tasted from being part of the fire ferrets, and seeing that she has to go on training would be a big hit to that newfound sense of freedom. She sees it as unfair, and a typical emotional reaction to unfairness is anger, and a feeling of being treated as less than those around you. She feels like she isn’t allowed to make decisions for herself, she feels less than those around her because of this, and gets angry. Bam. That’s a whap from that psych course I took at uni. Lol.
I disagree with the ‘oh she’s an emotional girl’ thing being tossed around.
It’s more of a ‘she’s a girl who’s been training all her life to be one thing, has no real experience with people, is suddenly thrown into a vastly complex world of social and political interactions with which she is not familiar, (is feeling out of her depth, and reacts often in knee-jerk manners), and is trying to hold on to the new sense of freedom that she feels she has’ thing.
<: It's not that hard to see how her current state of mind tacks on neatly to the last season. She doesn't want to train the way the people around her want, she wants to make her own choices. But at 17, we don't always see what's best for ourselves simply because we lack the life experience to do so.
So. Basically, I disagree on the maturity front with you. Maturity is to do with life experience. You can't really compare Aang's character with Korra's at all, because of their completely different developmental conditions. Aang was raised and socialised in a community, Korra was isolated and almost idolified. Aang was raised to be humble, and Korra feels like she can take on the world (and it's pretty scary when you realise that the world will squish you).
It's not a case of one being better than the other, they're just different and incomparable on all fronts. Maturity and approach to dealing with issues is a result of the application of experience moderated by personal schemas, which are a result of previous experience and upbringing.
Blah blah blah blah it's a show everyone should just shush and enjoy the martial arts magic.
I must say, those were the 2 best replies to Jacob Sharry Broderick’s comment: “Is this an essay? It’s a CARTOON, bloody hell”.
you, sir, hit the nail on the head, i must say! i agree fully, i’m happy that you did this comment! many seem to forget the facts you brought up. *bows* thank you
Korra has to go into avatar mode like every episode and she’s so rude and mean to the people who are trying to help her. It total bull crap falling into the stereotype of a “teenage girl” like whats that suppose to mean? I take that offensively, teenage girls are just people they don’t need to be super dramatic and angry at the world, like Korra is perceived to be..
Not all teenage girls, pretty sure you don’t see Tenzin’s girls or Asami running around having temper tantrums…no, they’re just being friendly, or playful, professional, etc. It’s just her personality and that’s the way she is ffs. It’s prolly why she pisses off so many fans.
Ok how about this: picture it.
Everyone tells you your whole life that you are amazing and powerful. They expect you to live up to someone who had the same fate as you and changed the entire world. Everyone is simultaneously holding you back and egging you on. Constantly. Your entire life. You’re not really allowed to interact with other people your age. You want romance and some semblance of a happy life but dont know how to go about it. You’re a late teenager girl who has basically no friends, no love life, you do nothing but train constantly and try to live up to everyone perception of you.
Tell me you wouldnt be fucking fed up, angry at the world, and confused.
when i first discovered this show on TV in season 1, i thought everyone would’ve felt the same as me: an excellent followup to The Last Airbender with some interesting changes. i never thought there would be so much backlash against Korra. Korra is so similar to Aang that i’m starting to think that some fans of The Last Airbender who gripe about her are just plain sexist.
I think it’s more like Korra does so many immature decisions and things that piss people off, especially in Season 2. That or people just can’t let go of The Last Airbender.
Are we watching the same show? Korra is like the exact opposite of Aang LOL. You’d never find Aang threatening to kill a judge or anyone for that matter. He’s so much more forgiving, respectful and hates violence, whereas that’s Korra’s go to for every situation she finds herself disliking. They’re both kind people and they’re both Avatars, and that’s where the similarities end.
Nah m8 she can just as easily as Aang and every other avatar, they can do it at will, just Aang couldn’t until he met that guru guy to unblock his thingies. Don’t know why
~chakras, chakras, everyboody loves chakras~
I didn’t just train pokey…I trained all the lemurs. *does his alpha thing*
‘I’ve created a monster.’ …LMAO my favorite part out of this whole entire episode..!!
questioning him doesn’t sound that bad now that he’s a snitch.
Seriously now…am I the only one who thinks Korra is a great protagonist who is way more relateable than Aang? Sure she is a brat but she learns from it. I think she is really interesting. Ok guys: Bring on the hate.
I’m with you. People are expecting perfect protagonists, from what I can tell. I found Aang terribly boring as a protagonist, and I really enjoy in contrast how flawed Korra is.
i fully agree with you! i can relate to her a lot better, even more since she is so human.. and she reminds me of myself when i was a little younger… (i sound so old even though i’m just 17 xD) ..
and i love her character developement! people can hate on me for this, i’ll take it! i think Korra is awesome and a great protagonist! she is behind in nothing! and lets not forget she had been hidden from the world for years not knowing what the outside world was like, being isolated, having no clue about society, politics outside the southern tribe. so it is only understandable that she is naiv and has problems dealing and processing things we can deal with and process just fine because we experience them on daily basis. well, she didn’t. many people seem to forget that…
Sorry, I don’t have any “hate” on me right now… You wanna check back in the alley though? I hear there might be a stash of it for sale back there… >_>
Don’t understand the Korra hate. Really like her. Just plain sexism there.
Random Northerner, “Get a real dog!”
Good, I wasn’t the only one…
When Meelo put Pokey on the ground, was anyone else expecting him to say, “It’s lonely at the top?”
Imagine if Avatar Roku acted like this when Fire Lord Sozin requested for his support in the war. I am not saying the North, or South are right; I am saying that is no way for an Avatar to act. She is one brat of an Avatar.
Because Roku was a teenager when he opposed Sozin. /sarcasm She’s doing what she believes to be the right thing to do. Her character will eventually learn the ways of the avatar, but if she was already the perfect avatar, then how would she grow as a character?
She is the most stupid Avatar ever! Bitch!
Friends, just watch it. It was kind of hinted at when Bolin told Mako about him breaking Korra’s heart.
“I think I just figured out your true calling”
Oh FUCK he’s gonna be a politician.
I don’t like how easy it is for Korra to go into the avatar state. She can just do it whenever she wants to and she hasn’t even unblocked her chukras yet. It doesn’t agree with the way the avatar state worked for aang
Great. I just had to read the comments first!
Note to self: Don’t read comments before watching the video…
Or until you’ve finished the series itself.
Some people just want to see the world burn.
You have seen the future, unknown guest.
Is anybody else wondering how so many people were born within such a short period of time? The southern water tribe went from a minuscule village to a massive city within 70 years!
I totally expected the break up, but not so soon.
Ugh, I hate Korra as the Avatar. And I REALLY hate how she sucks as a fighter…even when in the Avatar state (which as I recall, Aang NEVER lost while he was using it, and it usually made people around him scared) she still loses. Terrible. They should have held off for a while on letting her reach the Avatar state, and let it be her DEM when she got in real trouble. Right now it seems so useless…
As much as I love the fact that they continued Avatar, I am still disappointed with this show. Especially Korra. I understand that it’s difficult for her what with everything going on, but I disagree with a lot that she does. She never stops to think. It’s clear that she’ll use anything as an excuse for violence. An example is when she goes looking for the judge, where she deliberately uses violence to get information, and then she has to break her dad out of prison like that. Doing stuff like that is irrational because it lets her uncle know where she stands. If she was patient and formed a plan, then some of these problems could easily be avoided.
And the avatar state? What’s WITH that? Why does she lose with it? What’s the point of it? I always thought that the avatar state was the wisdom and ability of all the avatar’s being channeled within one person.
Also, it’s Mako and Korra’s relationship is infuriating. For one, I HATE love triangles and the whole BolinxKorra thing and then the MakoxAsami thing and THEN the MakoxKorra thing is just weird for me. Another thing is how the old gang, or The Gaang, was very tight. THeir friendship was good because they were there for each other through the hard times. Not only that, but nothing REALLY happened between Aang and Katara until near the end. It’s hard to have a good friendship when you’re dating everyone, and breaking up with everyone. The relationships are so different here. Not just with Korra’s friends, but also with Korra’s relationship with Tenzin and her dad and especially her past lives. There were no bad people that turn good, which is an idea I’m quite fond of. ANd I loved the relationship between Uncle Iroh and Zuko. I miss the “honour” thing too.
And I’m sorry but Bolin is just not Sokka.
But, I think the main problem is the story of the show. In Atla, there was one main goal: to defeat the firelord and restore peace. But here, you don’t know what the goal is. It’s just a bunch of problems that present themselves in front of Korra. The stories in Atla run pretty deep and this show just doesn’t make up for that, it’s just too shallow. In Atla, everyone had their own story to tell, what with Zuko and his family, Aang and his tribe, and Katara and her mother, but this was shown not told. I would have liked to seen more of the different characters. I want to see Mako and Bolin mixing with the gangs. I want to see Lin Beifong trashing air temple island. I want to see Tenzin and his trips with Aang.
ANd Aang! I can’t believe he played favoritism! It just doesn’t seem like an Aang thing to do! But I definitely want to see more of Aang, and the old gang. I guess I also loved how they used to travel around. It let you get to know the world that they live in, and it made you feel part of it too.
How do you download on iOS???
i’m watching this now in 2015 laughing at the makorra break up bc i know korrasami is coming and i am happy. i actually never quite liked Mako and Korra together, they’re too much alike for me.
I HATE MAKO…. GET AWAY FROM KORRA
IM A TEENAGE GIRL AND IM NOT LIKE KORRA!!! LOOK AT ME I CAN REPRESENT ALL TEENAGE GIRLS!!! IM BEEETTER AND DIFFFFERENT THAN GIRLS WHO HAVE BOY PROBLEMS!!!!
Give it a fucking rest.
I thought they said get a real job lol.
I love the dude who screams get a real dog to Korra… It killed me !! 04:25
Ha I love the : do the thing ! And she just turns the button
I hate that Dante Basco didn’t change his voice even a little while swaping from Zuko to Iroh (the new one) :/ I’m keep seeing the scar on his face xD
Was I the only one thinking back to the advice mako gave his brother when he broke up with Korra…. I was thing damn…. That preach is gonna come back and kill u when the anger of a break up sets in…. You know what Touf’s daughter threw a warning in there too…. Watch your back mako she may just go Avatar state on u…. lol I wonder how his brother is gonna react is he gonna be mad, or happy that he’ll get a second shot to win Korra over…. I guess I gotta just keep watching huh?
I was trying to type “Leach” not” preach”
WHAT THE FLAMEIO!?
I find it really strange that after book 1, the endings for the rest of the 3 books always make a negative chain effect for each other LIKE EVERY SINGLE LEGIT ANIME I’VE SEEN BEFORE!!
Originally Aang’s chakras were blocked, for a number of reasons but mainly because of the guilt he felt over abandoning the world, I believe. It’s possible that all Avatar’s need to have their chakras unlocked and Korra just had it done at a younger age, but I don’t think so.
After unlocking his Chakras, Aang was temporarily killed in the Avatar state and that blocked him from entering it again, until the fight with Lord Ozai when he was hit right on the spot (presumably a chakra was blocked again or something, I dunno.) and the Avatar state was again unlocked for him. After that he could do it at will, as he’s done in flashbacks in this show.
Anyone else hear one of the guys yell “Get a real dog!” at Korra during the peace march? xD
What the flameo happened here?!
