Why is Avatar the Last Airbender banned in China?

Since when did this happen? Link?

Or is it just that state-owned television channels are "not distributing it"? They don't distribute a hell of a lot of stuff, Avatar's hardly unique in this respect.

You should really consider asking Indy the Great as he's the so-called expert on all things China (don't).

I've been searching for answers for the past couple of nights, but what little I found points to yes.

Yeah, I don't think it's banned in China. Perhaps it never aired, officially, in the first place.

As mentioned above, I am feeling morbidly curious:

Is there anyone that honestly _prefers_ the movie to the series?

Well, there's a thread on /pkmn/ that had to be locked because it was constantly targeted by a spambot. So that isn't really surprising.

Sharky, I think it's time to lock this thread
>> No. 116944
I'm not typically in the practice of locking threads, but Murph is right.

Luckily for us all, the movie stopped being relevant soon after it's release and we can rest easy that it's good and dead, so locking it to stop a spambot is small potatoes.

What would be the primary things that people would remember Avatar Korra for?

Aang is remembered for helping to establish Republic City and the United Republic as well as ending the one hundred year war.

Something tells me that the Equalists would merely just be a small footnote in her life. She definitely would be remembered for leaving the Spirit portals open as that would have a major effect on the future world. But what else might people remember her for?

She's gotta be remembered for something especially when her entire life has been trying to become the best Avatar she could ever be so she cannot be completely upstaged by Aang's accomplishments.

I get the feeling that Republic City might end up being voted as one of the Avatar's greatest achievements.

Not sure if everyone is aware but Nickmade a deal on tumblr to get a certain amount of reblogs and they would release the final 2 episdoes.

Didn't see a thread about it so figured I would post it.

In a universe where there is a spirit world and there is confirmation that celestial bodies have a spirit or are a spirit themselves. How would this effect the upcoming space exploration that is sure to come as the human's technology continues to evolve?

I don't think it's ever confirmed ALL celestial bodies have spirits of themselves. For example, there appears to be no solar deity, with Raava being the only light spirit.

But all that shit at least had an old world steampunk look to it all. The Drill, the jetski's the tanks the zepplins all had a look that, while more advanced than what you'd expect to see in that world, still made than look like part of that world.

That shit up there is honestly just someone straight up tracing over a picture of modern truck loading silos. See picture. It may even be more far more simple a design than that other shit, but it doesn't fit the established style of Avatar technology.

You're focusing on bullshit tangible details that don't even cause any problems with the world that's already been established. We know for a fact that the Fire Nation have fairly advanced metallurgical skills, which means making objects like those, or like the fences in the image we're arguing about, are well within the realm of possibility for them. So if it's not physically impossible for these things to exist, what exactly is your argument? "The architecture's different than what I'm used to?"

Seriously, if you love nitpicking this much, you need to learn to do it better. Like start by learning to identify what the actual problems with the story or the art, rather than focusing on things that have nothing to do with how well a story works.

Their world doesn't seem that horrid of a place especially from what was seen in A New Spiritual Age. Even Iroh retired there. So why would spirits either in Korra's time or Wan's time want to inhabit the mortal world? What is so bad about their world that makes them want to crossover? Sure, there are dark places with dark spirits and not to mention Koh the Facestealer, but I'd figure their world is probably near-infinite. Couldn't they easily get away from such terrible things?

Oh and was this area basically New Zealand meets Wonderland?

Yeah from what we've seen so far it's pretty one-sided. I guess humans would hurt them indirectly by taking away their habitat in the physical world, but unless the spirits' nature changed through those ten thousand years I'm wondering what non-benders can do to protect themselves against the nastier spirits without also pissing off the good ones.

Oh shit, it's this thread again!

But no pie-in-the-sky dreaming for us, we've actually got three committed writefags, one of whom has outlined a first episode already.

Summary: An AU where instead of being found by Sokka and Katara, Aang is discovered by Mai and Ty Lee. Hijinks ensue as the dangerous ladies, pursued by Azula, try to reform the fire nation from within while helping the young Avatar on his journey.

When we rejoin Aang, he is waking up atop Appa, who is being flown by Mai. Ty Lee is overjoyed to see that Aang is awake and gives him a hug. Mai quips that Aang's lucky they didn't just leave him there after that stunt. Aang apologizes and thanks her for that. Ty Lee asks what happened exactly. Aang says he's not sure, but when he stared into Avatar Roku's eyes, something just came over him. He describes briefly what he saw, saying he couldn't tell what was the past and what was the future, what were his memories and what memories belonged to someone else. Mai tells Aang that he gets "weirder by the minute." Ty Lee just says she's glad he's okay. Momo crawls back up on Aang's shoulders and rubs against him. Ty Lee giggles and says Momo's glad he's okay too. Aang thanks Momo with head rub. Aang notices for a second that Mai's gloved, palms look like they're covered in fresh dirt, though he doesn't ask about it. He and Momo then turn to look back towards the temple. "We're sorry, Aang," Ty Lee says to him. "Did you need to stay a little longer?"

"No, that's alright" Aang sighs. Mai looks back at him softly as he finishes his sentence. "There's nothing left to see." The last frame/panel is of the place where Mai found the corpse of Gyatso. However, outside the small structure, there is a crude stone marker with a carved spiral into it with the earth in front of it disturbed (the implication is that before leaving, while Aang was unconscious, Mai dug a grave for Gyatso).

Just a quick note, these aren't the final drafts or anything so some details such as dialogue, plot points etc. are still subject to change. The way I see it, after these second outlines are finished, they can be converted everything to a more detailed and definitely more thoroughly proofread comic script. Right now, I'm just focusing on Book 1, but I'm brainstorming ideas for Book 2.

For any one who may still be keeping up with this, I'm almost finished with the second outline for Episode 4 (it's a bit difficult cause I changed a few things from the original outline, more on that when I finish), but I thought I'd stop by again and jot down some ideas I have for Book 2, if anyone still cares:

>Before Zuko continues his search for the Avatar, he and Azula oversee the occupation of the Northern Water Tribe. Zuko doesn't like sitting around, but is forced to wait. He and Yue develop a funny kind of mutual respect for one another before he leaves.
>One of the early episodes in the Book deals with Aang and the girls stopping in Yu Dao which explores Aang's reaction to how people live there.
>In Yu Dao, further seeds of an organized resistance against the regime of Ozai will be seen, made up of disgruntled colonials and mixed FN/EK citizens who feel like they aren't respected by those from the homeland.
>Kori Morishita, one of these frustrated individuals, although not part of any of the scattered cells of would be revolutionaries, decides the best way to prove herself would be to help capture the Avatar. In her first appearance, she's an antagonist of the Gaang's, but her distaste for Azula causes her to help Aang escape being captured. Kori also becomes Aang's first Earthbending tutor before he meets Toph, when this would be though and for how long, I don't know.
>The Gaang meets Suki and the Kyoshi Warriors again as they're fighting the Fire Nation, which is occupying their island. Many people of Kyoshi have since fled, but have nowhere to go. Aang attempts to reconcile the problems between the people of Chin and the people of Kyoshi so that Suki's people might have a place to stay until they can return home.
>Not sure how to redo the Cave of Two Lovers, but I had an idea that Aang says to Mai that maybe if they kiss they'll find their way out just for Mai to anticlimactically say "That so

Why can I still not get over these two episodes? I want to see more about Avatar Wan and his time. The second part skipped a whole lot of his life and implied that he has seen a lot. Do you think we may see more of him in a future season of Korra or perhaps even an animated made-for-television movie?

Not necessarily. The entire speech at the end of Book 2 seemed to be about forging your own new path without needing the shackles of what came before, etc. Plus Book 3 is called "changes". If it's about reconnecting with past lives that's kind of counter to what the theme is supposed to be.

I'd LIKE Korra to get the past lives back but I can see them saying they're gone for good.

>The highly anticipated return of The Legend of Korra is off to a very soft start in its first two weeks back. Both episodes have scored series lows, with the hour-long return on September 13 scoring 2.600 million total viewers. This past Friday’s new episode was even lower – with 2.191 million.

>The series’ first book aired from April to June 2012 and scored between 4.548 million for its highest during the series premiere and 2.976 million at its lowest in early June. Book one aired on Saturday mornings at 11am, while book two has relocated to Friday nights at 7pm.

>Korra isn’t alone. Nick’s other series are struggling to reach decent ratings. Last week’s new Sam & Cat scored 2.331 million viewers and newer series The Haunted Hathaways dropped to 1.896 million. Even Sanjay and Craig returned from a break to 2.378 million viewers on September 14. Korra was the 7th most watched program for the week ending September 15 on Nick – behind six SpongeBob repeats. September 21 and 22 ratings haven’t been released yet, but with Nick’s Worldwide Day of Play on Saturday, they are sure to be down even more than normal.
