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 »

Great anime style toon from Nick
1 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Avatar:The last bender is a must see show. Each episode is action packed and contains light humor and has a good storyline. And another plus is that the animation is great, in fact it is so great that Nickelodeon spends about $1 million on each show. It costs more than making 2 Spongebob episodes. Its basically about a child prodigy with unique air bending powers, who is the Avatar master of all 4 elements, who must save the world from the Fire Nation along with his friends. Katara a water bender, and Sokka, Katara's warrior brother,Appa a giant flying bison, and Momo Aang's(the avatar)pet lemur. Basically the future for Earth is at stake and the people depend on Aang to save them.
