Intergalactic warrior Star Butterfly arrives on Earth to live with the Diaz family. She continues to battle villains throughout the universe and high school, mainly to protect her extremely powerful wand, an object that still confuses her.
The world is divided into four elemental nations: The Northern and Southern Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. The Avatar upholds the balance between the nations, but everything changed when the Fire Nation invaded. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, can stop them. But when the world needs him most, he vanishes. A hundred years later Katara and Sokka discover the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. Together they must help Aang master the elements and save the world. Written by

Only five of the characters throughout the series have their age explicitly mentioned: Aang is 112 (though only 12 biologically), Zuko and Yue are 16, Toph is 12, and Tom-Tom (Mai's brother) is 2. It is also mentioned that Mai is fifteen years older than her brother, which makes her 17. Besides Aang, at least two other characters are over 100 years old: Bumi (who knew Aang before he got frozen) and Guru Pathik (who knew Monk Gyatso). Certain pieces of information from various episodes also imply that Firelord Sozin, Avatar Kyoshi, and Avatar Kuruk had lived for over 100 years each. See more »
The design of the white lotus tile changes through the course of the series. The first design is shown in the Book 1 episode "The Waterbending Scroll", when Iroh holds up the tile he finds in his sleeve. The second design is seen in the Book 2 episode "The Desert", when Iroh makes the first move in the game. (The old man that Iroh is playing against confirms it is the white lotus.) Then, in the Book 3 episode "Sokka's Master", the tile given to Sokka by the butler more closely resembles the first design. See more »
Water... Earth... Fire... Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. And although his airbending skills are great, he still has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone. But I believe Aang can ...

The art and research put into this story matches the quality of the plot and character development. This show is what Nickelodeon needs to give it some respect. Not since Samauri Jack has an American show been able to pull off an anime style that works. It's good to know that children that watch this show may actually learn what it takes to have a good story. The research put into the story is amazing. The bending styles all coincide with different styles of fighting and can be seen in every episode. The show itself is also planned out, as minor questions formed in one episode may not be answered for another 10 some episodes later, so it's not just another Nick "story" show like Danny Phantom, all episodes are connected and well planned out. I wouldn't doubt that the next 3 seasons are already written. The character development and writing can match even some of the best television writers out there, it may even be able to stand toe-to-toe with the works of Joss Whedon.
I give the show an easy 10/10, especially if you watch all the shows in order.
