Does anyone even watch this show?  I'm way outside of the intended age demographic and think its awesome.  I've overheard some guys who must have been 30 who were talking about it.  Any way just curious because a couple of my mates are starting up an RP forum.  It's still under construction but functional. http://avatarnationsrp.proboards56.com/ (http://avatarnationsrp.proboards56.com/)

Live action is a definite maybe, as I know. Also, it will not be called "Avatar," as a name the exact same was already chosen for a different movie, so they have considered "Airbender."

I saw the season finally today finally. It was good.

Air Benders, Water Benders, Earth Benders, Fire Benders, Lighting Benders, Metal Benders, Ice Benders, Sand Benders and even Plant Benders... I wonder if they will have a lava bender. I wonder if it will be based out of Earth Bending or Fire Bending.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Luminar on February 01, 2007, 06:16:00 am
What confuses me is that for being based on Taoism or possibly Shinto (a religion which incorporates said 4 elements), they seem to have forgot the chinese elements actually number 5 and are Fire, Water, Wood, Metal and Earth. (Another possible model (possibly Hindi) did indeed have the four classical elements, Air Earth Fire and Water, but also had a fifth which was "Aether" (something to do with space) if I remember rightly).

So where's the fifth element? Anyone says Leela and you die a horrifying death. They'd better not pull some "Heart" crap like captain planet if they decide to do it, not only because Heart was a lame power, but Heartbenders sounds like some kind of freakish boy band combined with a soap opera. Spacebenders on the other hand... you know, while we're on the subject of reality physics, what about Timebenders?

And Avatar is hardly anime. The animation quality is actually good so it doesn't qualify as anime on that count. Merely having an oriental context doesn't mean it's anime.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Krakow Sam on February 01, 2007, 07:08:55 am
Depending on the cultre the 'void' or 'Aether' element is either meant to represent the supernatural or spiritual aspects of the world (you could call it Soulstuff, or something) or it represents a sort of palpable nothing which allows physical objects to exist, like Luminiferous and Magnetic Ethers used by the victorians to describe the medium through which light and magnetism were supposed to travel.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: aligon on February 01, 2007, 06:29:37 pm
This show doesn't have to be based existing religions or beliefs, so I don't think there are any "missing" elements to the show or anything. They just decided that in the Avatar's world, there are in fact 4 elements.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Hydromancerx on February 01, 2007, 07:28:53 pm
Yoou are taking toi too seriously. Avatar takes many world cultures into one. Mostly east asian but some India and even Inuit too. I even noticed some resebled other world cultures as well that were not asian at all. Such as the swamp water tribe was very much like the bayu culture of the US. While the earth sandbenders were much like the middle east nomads.

There are two females my friend.  Two within the group, and then the Fire-bending princess and her two friends.  So, actually, more like five token 'tough females.'

They're not even remotely weird, they're just fusions.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Notorious B.O.B on March 21, 2007, 08:16:11 pm
First off, not entirely 100 % fusions (seriously, have you ever seen a six-legged mammal?)
Secondly, regardless, they are still weird


In fact, in reality Luminar, no matter how original the animal, we can only create something that is made of things we've seen before.  So any creature from Creation Corner, any alien, genetic experiment gone wrong, or what have you, from any story, is a fusion of elements of our experiences (for example, dinosaurs, skeletons, bugs, and machines for the Xenomorph from Alien).  So really, these are not not weird due to the fact that they are merely fusions.  Otherwise, no creation, fantastical or otherwise, would be weird.  Its just that the animals in Avatar are, I guess, less 'subtly' fused, so to speak, and are thus easier targets for the snobbish among us to dismiss with disdain.
Think about THAT!  :o :D  ;D

Well, metalbending is good, only Toph can do it because she has supa powas fo shizzle. Bloodbending is bending the plasma in blood. But both have limitations. Metalbending is harder, because it is stronger and bloodbending is only available at full moon.

No, what's disturbing was that last episode.  I get that they wanted to establish that Aang still feels the pressure of what he has to do, but it was just over the top.  It's one of the few episodes where I liked Zuko's bit better than the Gaang's.

I like a good laugh, and the shows humor is usually spot on.  That's why Soka is an awesome character.  But it needs to at least fit as something that could happen to them, or I just feel like the writers said "this is too serious, add something zany in that bit."  The whole episode felt like that.

Ah well, I'm sure the day of the black sun will make up for everything, and hopefully put an end to the filler episodes.

WHAT??? ITS ON THE NET NOW???

Haven't seen it yet but will soon, the reason for this is that I just upgraded to Internet Explorer 7 and add-ons are disabled so I can't use flash or javascript right now until I bypass it to reanable themm again. Sorry for the life story guys, but from what I am hearing it's a great episode.

p.s. not to just ask for help but does anyone know how to reanable add on's not in the tools menue but in general. The manage addons options is still there not greyed out but just to turn them back on again. And people just don't do research on it to help me just curious ok,again sorry for giving you my life story. ;)

PS. Love this show! Only problem is I'm not able to watch all of it because they restart the show every month or so. :P But that doesn't change the fact that I like it, a lot. ;)

Well, since all of the air nomads are air benders, and all their children end up being air benders as well, it is possible that he could have air bending kids some day, and they will continue his people that way.  Either that, or the cycle will be broken.

Now, I've never watched the show, but isn't the title "Avatar: The Last Airbender"? That would sort of imply that the Airbender featured is, in fact, the last one.

Who knows, maybe it's just a ruse until some weird twist leaving us with the fact that there are air benders still left. But thats just my honest assumption at the moment, if you know how directors are they can add plot twists and plot holes to add the shock factor. But this isn't the first time this has been discussed, checkout tv.com and you'll see what I mean. :)

Yeah it kinda was.

Spoilers:  The part of what makes a firebender was kind of intreging, but also sorta of stayed away from some (not all of the plot).What makes the firebender is what fuels their power to bend. Zuko losing his firebending abilties was a major surprise and gaining them back was a hassle, you can really tell when he snaps at Aang during his lessons.But my favorite aspect of the Ep was the fact that firebending was hidden until firebending became something more dangerous by people that use it with anger and hate instead of happiness and passion. And the dance they did was kinda badass, impressing the dragons looked difficult but the end result was amazing. And finally Aang firebending again was a great relief as I couldn't see him not firebending at all.

Yeah, the whole different aspect of giving power to firebending besides hatred was really cool, and that's what stopped Aang from thinking it's evil. Also, I hope they can change colours of flames too, like the dragons. Now that Zuko has peace within, will he be able to thunderbend?

Ya think Aang will ever learn to bend the other elements? You know, light, blood, shadow, etc. They're just different combinations of the four elements. Like blood being a combination of earth and water, with a little touch of fire. :-\
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Neoadept on March 29, 2008, 07:01:49 am
Blood bending is a subset of water bending, otherwise Katara couldn't do it.  There is no evidence of light or shadow falling into any bendable category, and I think I'd stop watching if they started inventing new schools of bending instead of including them in the first four by logical extension.

As for Aang learning blood bending, and let's throw lightning in there too, It's an interesting question.  The Avatar is supposed to be capable of becoming a master in all four elements, but these special subsets seem to be beyond even that.  They seem to be something that only those with a such a strong spiritual connection to their element that it allows them an innate understanding of these subsets, and I'm not sure if Aang has that.  Really, these subsets seem like they were created to give really strong benders an edge against the Avatar, so I doubt he'll be learning them.  Hell, even in the Avatar state he's never used something like them.

Didn't see the finale. I thought thursday's episode was pretty good, though (tbh, I don't really follow the show too much); it used two of my favorite plot themes - redeemed/ing villain and "facing your demons" (SW is addicted to said plot themes :) ). They're great themes IMO because they really give the protagonists (and sometimes the antagonists) time for character exploration.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Neoadept on July 21, 2008, 07:07:34 am
Saw it, it was a fantastic ending for the series, even if it does leave a few questions unanswered.

Though, I am a little bothered by Azula.  I was fine with her going crazy right up until the end.  Insane paranoia suits her.  But the laughing?  Just a little over the top.

And then I'm bothered that they didn't show us what they did with her.  This is Azula we're talking about, eventually she'll calm down into that slow, boiling, hatred that we're so used to.  She'll still be dangerous even if her fire bending is taken away, which is questionable, because unlike her father she never really relied on it.  She conquered Ba-Sing-Sei and the only fire she needed was against the Avatar team.  All it will take is one tricked guard, and she'll be out constructing Machiavellian schemes for revenge.  If they do make a spin off, and it takes place within a lifespan of this series, I expect her to make an appearance.

Hey, look at that, quick, effective spoiler method that requires neither quote button nor copy/paste to read!

Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Ultramarine on July 21, 2008, 09:03:14 am
If anyone payed attention I posted a link for that ages ago ::)

Anyway Neo, the question of Azula isn't the only thing, there's the location of Ursa as well.

*Spoiler*

First off seeing Azula go mad was fitting for her character personality but also sad to see as well.
I mean a 14 year old going through all that is astonishing, the writers really hit the nail on the head when it came to insanity.

Honestly the laughing was just enough, I suppose she was due to the fact she thought she had the advantage in battle (which she did for some time). But she was slipping, with her lack of anyone else to fear her and the loss of her fathers attention she was slowly spiralling down into a pit of anger, madness and sadness. There's further evidence of her falling down during the Southern Raiders, during her fight with Zuko she was more more reckless with her attacks and nearly lost her life in a fall (but with her skill she survived). In the end with no one to love her and no one to fear her she finally loses it, and the way she goes out with a bang is , in my opinion, one of the most graphic scenes I've ever seen on Nick. It wasn't graphic as in gory or violent, just seeing her writhe in pain anguish and sadness all the while trying to escape her confinement whilst bellowing fire from her mouth and nose was a hard realization. This is one of the first times I've ever felt bad for her (including the Ursa hallucination sequence).

But as you said there are some unanswered questions to the series:

1. The fate of Azula
2. Ursa's location

The main ones at least, but some of these are suggestions I've been hearing:


1. Toph's unexpanded story in the case of the Finale episode. When they were searching for Aang she brings up her childhood, with Zuko tagging along he totally dismisses Toph's story and tells her to focus on the mission, which indeed bothers her. I mean COME ON, yes we've expanded on Toph quite a bit but not nearly enough, I really won't mind seeing a touching moment between her and Zuko since they both have trifled pasts.

2. The idea of the Last Airebender. If you've noticed the next avatar will be a water bender, than fire than earth than air. You see the problem with that? As far as we know all of the airbenders are dead (and the air "nomads" as far as we know"), so I doubt airbending will just pop up hundreds of years later as the Air bisons are extinct (in theory since none other than Appa have been shown to exist), and they were the original airbenders. (dragons= firebending, badger moles= earthbending, the moon= water bending) I mean it could still continue in the cycle with just the 3 elements but still.

That's all I can think of for now, but with the issue of Ursa:

If you notice Zuko's interrogation of Ozai, he asks why Zuko truly came to speak with him. You'll notice that the music speeds up, a possible clue to...I don't entirely know a spin off of some sort? But that's wishful thinking who really knows, it could have been a hint or a plot device devised by the directors to keep people guessing. And for the most part a lot of directors add plot devices to keep the show alive beyond TV, that's why people make fan fics, art et cetera showing that the show still lives on. I mean I'd love to get some more closure but maybe that's for the fans to decide (still some sort of explanation would be nice, or an entirely new series would be pretty cool)

Honestly compared to the shows like DBZ, Yu Gi Oh or any other animated television series this one ACTUALLY tells a great story. I know it's mean to pic on another show but the analogy  is right. In my opinion this is the greatest thing Nick has done thus far and overall Avatar: The Last Airbender is spiritually binding, an amazing tale of good restoring the balance to the world in a fun action packed manner; last but not least one of the best animated series of all time not considered anime. It's sad to see the series end but at least Aang's story is finally over and peace is finally in their grasp.

Post by: Ultramarine on July 21, 2008, 09:38:01 am
Sounds good to me, and I think that's what the writers were origionally thinking of to do since the shows creation. They dismiss it now but it's been hinted something else might be in the works (possibly book 4 or some other type of spin off).

I hope they tie up some loose ends, it's really needed; one I would like to know is did the Earth King take back his role as the ruler of the earth kingdom. Also what ever became of the Dai Lee?
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Neoadept on July 21, 2008, 11:07:51 am
As far as Air Bending is concerned, I wouldn't worry.  The writers mentioned at one point that Bending is more about spirituality than genetics.  If you recall, there's a group of free spirits flying around in gliders at the northern Air temple, and we've never seen a single one of them bend.  I'd guess that at some point in the near future some kid will get born there and breezes will do weird things around him.  And the Avatar will show up.  And it will be passed on.  Possibly alongside awesome steampunk tech.

The secondary title "The Last Airbender" keeps it open for other sagas if they decide to continue. Lets say if they go back to the very first avatar. That's a possibility.

This deviates from TV discussion but due to the all time high success of the finale, Nickelodeon decided to make an MMO as a prequel to the show.

http://kotaku.com/5029183/nickelodeon-rolls-out-avatar-mmo (http://kotaku.com/5029183/nickelodeon-rolls-out-avatar-mmo)

Knowing the general reputation of Nickelodeon games with THQ I can't expect it will be great at all. It may even ruin it. But I guess it will tie over those Avatar fanatics.

Also I was lurking around the Nick site and the where abouts of Azula has been said:

Quote from:  Nick.com
After Zuko defeated her in the Agni Kai, Azula was shipped off to a mental health facility on a nearby island where she is supervised around the clock

Some how I knew this would be, but it's still unknown if her bending is still intact.
I bet she's in a padded room :D

Still the writers decide not to give information on Ursa's where abouts.
With that in mind it could be hinting something still, or it's to be revealed in another way (hopefully)
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Logan Felipe on July 26, 2008, 03:36:15 pm
I saw the finale today (yay reruns), and I must say; I was impressed.



My favorite part was the internal conflict Aang had. Where other programs simply kill off a villain, he actually sought a way to stop him without killing him, even when all the past avatars thought it wasn't possible. It reminded me of how Luke found a way to restore the balance without killing his father, even though Kenobi and Yoda thought it impossible (naturally other stories have similar themes, but I'm most familiar with the Star Wars version).

Yea, networks often mangle some of their best shows. If they're not showing the episodes out of order (Firefly), they're just mixing and repeating the same episodes over and over (Batman and Superman), until their audience gets tired of it and stops watching, which I guess makes them think its a bad show so they cancel it. Sometimes I think the guys in the broadcast booths must be retarded or something.

Avatar was an epic show, too bad that it ended. But I prefer it ending epically, then dragging over for a lot of seasons and slowly losing its charm.

Avatar ended quite well. The choice not to extend the series into the nth season was a good idea, it assured that the series wouldn't eventually be filled up with absurd secondary plots and unneeded 5 episode long battles. A wonderful show all around.

Wow. Guys. Didnt realise there was so much love for this show on the forums..

Last Thursday, my mate begged me to watch the first episode of this show called Avatar: The Last Airbender on the net. I knew of the show, and i'd seen an episode like 2 years before but thought it was just another kids animation show. Dont get me wrong, im only 15, so i suppose i can still be interested in Nick shows. (Spongebob respect.) So i agreed.. and by Sunday night i had watched all 3 books. I just couldnt stop watching. Has to be one of the best shows on TV i have ever seen, with Lost being the best of course.
Man, im just feeling really, really annoyed that there is no more to watch! Its been like a year; i reckon they should create a spin-off. I WANT MORE AVATAR!!

My mate also told me about the movie after i watched all the episodes.. At first i wasnt really impressed after looking at the director, but after a bit more of a look into it, im sort of looking forward to seeing it next year. Really hoping it doesnt destroy the story.
(Watch update 1 through 9: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcLhKFyn4Bk)
There will be 3 Avatar movies if there is enough support for the 1st.. 1 for each book. I cant wait.

And for those that havnt yet seen any avatar, i strongly suggest checking it out. I have the best website for the 3 books. Its got those embedr things, so you you stay on the same webpage for every episode. Fast and reliable.
http://www.avataruploader.piczo.com/?cr=3

Please check it out if you havnt already. Jeez. I was like on a high while watching it.. Now ive hit an extreme low.. How sad?


Edit: Wow! I want to talk more! I love Momo. Sexy beast. I love the fact that its an asian style cartoon written by Americans... The jokes in it are classic. Most of the time they were funny, but i only actually laughed out loud once.. in one of the last episodes.. My favourite character has to be without a doubt, Uncle Iroh. The final battle was epic i must admit.. But at the same time i found it kind of anti-climatic. Aang was fighting without the avatar state and losing terribly, but when he went into the avatar state he was pretty much invincible and from then on it was just cool watching the ownage of Fire Lord Ozai.
I dont know which ep is my favourite. I keep watching funnier ones and forgetting the names of them.

This is certainly one of the best shows I have seen on TV. 'Tis a shame Nickelodeon doesn't seem to show it more often.
I always laugh out loud whenever I see the episode where Aang hallucinates due to lack of sleep.

It's by M. Night Shamaramallamadingdong. (I don't know how to spell his name, so that'll do for now). So... there is a 65% chance that it'll be utter crap... especially since the rumor is that Aang is gonna be white/Caucasian (Dragonball Evolution-syndrome).

Rumor was a while ago that the actor playing Aang in the movie was going to be Caucasian/White. That may have changed or could have just been a rumor, but my 65% number stands (in my opinion) just from his track record. I just hope the writers respect the lore.

In my opinion the series kinda dragged on for a while. Of course a lot of other shows do that, but avatar seemed to take forever. >_>
Maybe it was just the reruns that came on everyday of the exact same episode for three weeks straight before playing a another rerun for the same amount of time.
I say if you can stand though the first chapter(Water) then it gets better from there. Especially the finale, that was awesome.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: dndfreak on November 07, 2009, 10:22:44 am
This worries me.  There are only 61 episodes, so if it has a good deal of filler then what can there be for actual content?

Wasn't he caucasian in the series anyway?
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Doomsday on November 07, 2009, 05:05:56 pm
Technically, since Asians get classed in with Caucasian, yes. Still, his features were more in line with portions of Asia, especially Chinese and Tibetan. It would not be a major stretch to make him "white" but it is kind of off-putting for fans of the series. I doubt very many of the kid fan-base would care, but Avatar had pretty broad appeal considering it's deep story. Towards the end you almost couldn't tell it was a children's show, what with the Blood Bending episode(s), darker themes, and romantic sub-plots.

Heck, the story and the world were pulled off together nicely and while parts of it did drag, especially in parts of Water and the first half of Earth. Still in the end, Toph made up for Earth being a little slow. I'm not usually one for tsunderes, but Toph is the West's take on one and she kicks arse.

DnD: Since most of that will probably be Greek to you, let me say this. I highly recommend it. For a Nickelodeon show it isn't overly childish, the voice acting is very good (most of the time), it's a wonderfully crafted world with depth, the characters are well crafted, and the fighting styles are based on real fighting styles. A lot of care was taken to make the fighting believable, even in a fantastic setting like this. It's light-hearted most of the time, but it really is just an all around good show to kill time with.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: dndfreak on November 07, 2009, 05:18:28 pm
I could care less whether or not it was on Nick, if it's anime it's anime.  I saw the first episode or two at some point way back, but never really followed through.  As far as believability goes, we're talking about a show where a thousand year old pact turns little kids into elemental warriors so I really don't think it makes too much relevance.  What I worry about is the steaming pile of filler.  Where it only takes up 61 shows, any amount of filler makes a difference.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Doomsday on November 07, 2009, 05:47:42 pm
You don't seem to understand what Filler is... Filler, as I've come to I've come to know it, is anything that doesn't follow the canon of a story in or side stories that mess with the timeline of the original source material. The Last Airbender was not based on anything else; comic, book, manga, movie, or otherwise. The show itself is canon. There is no filler as it all plays to the plot on some level. Whether it's character growth or advancement of the story. You also call it Anime, this is not technically true. It uses a different color palette, it's stylized, and story-drive (like Anime) but it is ultimately a Western Cartoon with Anime Influences. It is an amalgamation of the two art forms, especially when it comes to storytelling, as the story is more Western in nature.

About believability, your right that in a story like this that it isn't that important, but it helps suspend disbelief and helps to make the characters and their styles seem more real.

Long story short, there is no real "filler" but some parts drag on a little longer than others, especially the parts mentioned earlier and with Zuko at first. So once again. No filler, but episodes can drag a bit between major events.

You don't seem to understand what Filler is... Filler, as I've come to I've come to know it, is anything that doesn't follow the canon of a story in or side stories that mess with the timeline of the original source material.

Filler episodes are entire shows in which nothing of importance occurs.  In the case of the filler-whore DBZ, it was because the manga it was based on was being produced at such a rate that the show had caught up to it so the show's creators had to stall until the next part of the story was released in the manga.

In summary, filler is when an episode does little to no plot advancement at all and cutting it all together would make no difference.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: Doomsday on November 07, 2009, 06:58:48 pm
Under that definition there is only one episode that definitely would definitely fit that description (and it's dedicated to one of the VAs who died, and touches on the plot at the very end of the episode). To me, character advancement isn't filler... if it is for you, then there may be quite a bit of it.
Title: Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Post by: dndfreak on November 07, 2009, 07:20:03 pm
No, CA doesn't really qualify as filler... at least, unless the CA is never referenced or pulled upon in the rest of the plot.

Just watch it then, its good, its original, and its fun.

There is no filler, sometimes it was slow, but most of it was all good stuff. Hence, its only 61 episodes, thus there is little room for filler within 3 seasons and a fully completed story.

New season announced! (http://www.geekosystem.com/avatar-the-legend-of-korra/) :D

Quote
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.

A few tanks, a drill, a hot air balloon (Which yes, in the right context, is steampunk), and a few other things.

Also a train looking thing I think (in the sleep deprivation episode? I think it was the episode right after they made Toph the Earthbending Teacher?).

Same as how Aang learnt Earthbending? As Airbending and Earthbending are opposites.
