For a while Nick wasn’t working for me, AND I FIGURE THE PROBLEM OUT ON THE FINALE!!! LUCK FAVORS ME FOR ONCE!! (check your cookies if you live in the U.S. and have this problem)
I’m kind of sad the series is over now, like it’s hitting me so hard right now. I was thinking near the end, “are they shipping Korra and Asami????”, and I guess they did. So I guess all the Korrasami believers finally got their wish come true. At first I thought they were gonna make Mako and Korra come together again, but it looks like they wanted to have a change of events. Although I have to admit, my favorite couple is Mako and Korra, and I’m kind of sad they didn’t get together, even though their relationship seems kind of old. I’m also with mixed feelings that they went on a vacation alone because Mako and Bolin were left out :/
I thought the music was awesome throughout, especially at the end. It really had me getting them feels lol. On top of that, it’s making me get that feeling I get when I have to wait next week for a new episode, except there are no more new episodes );
The fighting was insane, and it wasn’t an all out battle. Although I felt that a military battle would be adding to the fun, the concept was nice. It was indeed similar to the drill, but they added stuff that made the episode a good finale. It went from hardcore action all the way to making every fan think.
As for the action, I’m not sure whether Mako’s lightning generation was in episode 12 or episode 13, but it was amazing. The music playing while he was creating the lightning made it seem like he was going to die. I honestly felt scared for Mako because I got the Zuko vibes when he was fighting Azula. The hummingbird suits were amazing, and I think they really are innovational pieces of technology. But the fact that Hiroshi Sato was killed made me feel really bad, because I was starting to like him as a character. When he was saying “almost done,” I had a feeling something was going to happen, but I didn’t think that he was going to get killed like that. And finally, in just episode 13′s fight scenes, what I liked most was how they showed that the Avatar is more powerful than the laser cannon, and I loved how it got destroyed!!!! FINALLY, I got my answer on how they will deal with the weapon! Korra is going to make an awesome Avatar, and that spirit portal that opened up….. too nice.
I loved the new spirit portal. It looks so nice in the middle of the city, and it feels like a whole new change. It’s different from the swamp in that it’s more open, and there’s less trees, but it’s the best thing in Republic City now. It’s giving me the concept of huge change, but a restoring of balance as well. There’s a north portal and a south portal, and now there’s one in the middle, and I think it’s amazing.
Prince Wu man!! At first I thought he was rapping, and I was thinking, “If I met him, he would so be in my squad.” His rhymes were on point, and I love how the badger mole thing did the sneak attack. It was a nice reference to the episode where those singing nomads came with Aang in the Tunnel of Love thing with the huge Labyrinth. So now people, Wu can not only dance, but he can sing, rap, AND dance. Entertainer of the World in the future lol. I liked how he made a mature decision to make a incomplete democracy of the Earth Kingdom, like the United States. (Did they refer to it as the Earth Kingdom again and not the Empire, because if they did, that makes me even more satisfied lol).
Now after the action, the wedding was absolutely perfect. I also loved Varrick’s proposal. I think this episode answered lots of people’s shipping proposals, because the couples were nice. I was hoping Bolin and Mako would get someone at least, but I guess we’ll find out in the comics. Back to the wedding, I love how everyone was dressed up and everything. Personally, I thought Korra and Asami looked really nice. And don’t forget about Zhu-Li. And finally when they press the button together to shoot the fireworks was absolutely perfect. I also love how Bolin arranges the wedding because he wanted to ship them so bad too lol.
I still want to ship Korra and Mako for some reason. Maybe it’s because I saw them first, maybe I’m still attached to them? I have no problem with Korrasami, it’s just I wished Makorra. Wow, first time I kind of wish for some other shipping than what the series provided. It also gave me the feels when they left the spirit portal because I wanted to see more of LoK. I wanted to see an ending for ever character, and I wanted every character to get so much spotlight. I guess what I really wished for was that Nick allowed them to have a 4 episode finale, or even a 3 episode finale, so that some of these things can be addressed. Of course, it’s not necessary, it’s just how LoK attracts all the fans.
As I write this it just keeps hitting me that LoK is over now. Man, I’m going to go to school tomorrow half depressed and half excited. Or I guess I should say today because it’s Friday technically. (I also gave up on hw to watch and write this, and it was worth it). And the thing that’s really bugging me is that the next comic comes 2015!!!!! And it’s an ATLA comic!! I want a Korra comic tooooooo >.<
Wow, this finale got me hooked so badly and I want to watch the ending over and over again. I'm probably gonna rewatch the season finale, then go back to season 1 because I was planning on watching all the good ol' times of Korra. It's what I did with ATLA, and it's probably what I'm going to do with Korra until the comic comes out. The thing was though, the comics came alongside the series, so nothing felt that long except for the wait for Book 2. I almost wished Book 4 came out later because I don't wanna wait this long…. (did I write 2 paragraphs complaining about the release date of the comic??)
Ok well I'm going to post another reply a bit later so that I can clear my thoughts and somewhat calm down my feeling of sadness that the series is over.
