Taking place 70 years after the events of "Avatar: The Last Airbender," this story follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang - a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern "Avatar" world, Republic City - a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang's son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.Written by
Going into this series after having finally watched Avatar: The Last Airbender, I was expecting it to be a classic sequel-case with excessive fan-service and more one-dimensional plot lines and characters.
I'm very glad to say this this really isn't the case. The series does not use The Last Airbender as a crutch - it evolves past it, exploring characters completely different to those seen in the original series, all the while expanding the Avatar universe - everything that a sequel should aim for. This show is wonderful journey not dissimilar to ATLA, but it also stands on its own, and is no less enjoyable.
I cannot recommend this series enough to anybody who enjoyed The Last Airbender.
