Review: Nickelodeon brings comics to life

Characters, story key to success for ‘Avatar,’ ‘Korra’

“Avatar: The Last Airbender” and “Legend of Korra” are two of Nickelodeon’s most successful shows and worth checking out for fans of all ages.

Both shows have their own strong points. For “Avatar,” the creativity in the battles are pretty amazing. “Korra” features stories for each season that are pretty interesting as well. 

However, what they both have in common is the character development. Korra and Aang’s character development throughout their respective shows are surprisingly deepp. Aang learned through his mistakes, and he fixed them by doing so. Korra starts to be more patient. 

Not to mention, the show’s story development is pretty good. Each season is a strong follow-up of previous seasons, including the ‘Legend of Korra” show. “Korra” is followed by the ending of the comics of “Avatar.” If you read the comics, then you’ll be able to understand the cartoons even more, but it’s not necessary. The comics still goes on with the cartoons. 

Not to mention, you can also learn some life lessons from watching these cartoons. You can learn to forgive, you can learn to enjoy what you have, and you can learn how to change.

Both the “Avatar:The Last Airbender” and “Legend of Korra” are excellent shows and they both are unique in their own ways. They both give lessons that can be used in real life as well, and you can follow some of the advice that one of the character’s gives.
