    • lets hope theres another one

    • There's that comic on Mai that's coming up, but it's right after part 1 of the search. I heard there's another comic series after the search. The point of these comics are to be the bridge between LoK and A:TLA so I'm assuming there's going to be more of a bridge.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, we also do have the upcoming Mai comic. THAT I will be excited to see.

      Probably even more, yes. Though hopefully they're not all out solely to bridge things with Korra. The Gaang has other adventures they can have in the meantime.

    • Yes, the Lost adventure comics ^_^ They already have those though...

        Loading editor
    • Always room for more, if you ask me.

      Me, I encourage more Gaang-centric adventures. I'm not done following them.

        Loading editor
    • It would just be awesome if they made another series of A:TLA, even if it is with different voice actors. They did that with family guy, why not Avatar?

      but then they might screw up...ah well. Guess I'll just stick with comics

        Loading editor
    • Yiggh, I'd try to get as many of the originals to come back as possible. Most of them can still do the voices. Most of them.

      Dunno about you, but Korra hasn't delivered if you ask me. But, you probably knew I thought that. ^^;

      The comics are what I'm looking forward to.

    • Yea but the most important one, Aang, probably can't. He hasn't done anything besides Avatar (except Ant bully) and he's 19 now. I'm guessing his voice has probably changed. Mae whitman could do it and Dante basco still has his chill voice. Jack DeSena also hasn't done anything besides Avatar, and he's older now. Cricket could probably still do mai though and Grey definitely can still do Azula. 

      Yes I did, so that's why I thought "they might screw up" XD

      Yes, comics ^_^ But a lot of people oppose the comics too

    • i would love more episodes with avatar the last airbender.  are they going to make a tv series out of the comics?

        Loading editor
    • They'll have to get someone new for Aang, unless they age up Aang himself.

      Grey can still do it, Jack MIGHT be able to do it. Mae can do it, Dante can definitely do it. So we'll have the majority oif not all of them.

      Cricket and Olivia need to come back as Mai and Ty Lee. We need them, they're young enough to continue the voices. Olivia Hack was in her mid-twenties at the time Avatar aired.

      Korra definitely screwed up, and I'm not hopeful for Book 2.

      Eh, the haters of the comics........I don't know, I don't hate them. I think the comics are good. Not masterpieces, but they are fun.

      No, no show is to emerge from the comics. I'm sorry =(

        Loading editor
    • I'm quite sure no show is coming from the comics. Besides, what would be the point of that? THERES THE COMIC.

      Yea Korra wasn't the best, but just give season 2 a chance....at least I am

    • I don't plan to be active when Book 2 airs. I'm even more convinced now that I've re-reviewed the concept art for the redesigned Southern Water Tribe. XP


      I don't think so, but if I find one, I'll let you know.

    • I'm pretty sure that Jessie Flower wouldn't be able to return to voice Toph, though, even if such a second series were to happen ... she started sounding distinctly different even at the end of the duration of the series to me,  than she did when she was first introduced. Sighs. Oh well.

      And no, there's no recent interviews of Gene Yang & The Bryke currently available online. That I'm aware of, anyways.

        Loading editor
    • That's gonna suck not having Jessie or Zach if they ever got the Gaang together again.

      I didn't think so.

        Loading editor
    • Yes. Especially because it was the two twelve-year old characters that I found most appealing to me in the original series; you can't really have that when the two voice actors have clearly grown up. :(

      Part of me wants to know what Toph sounds like (and acts like) in her teenage years, though. Which of course has me speculating on what voice actors they might choose, even though I know it's unlikely they'd ever air such a show...My fanaticism is showing again, isn't it?

        Loading editor
    • And it takes a special kind of voice actor to capture a child's voice even in adulthood. Some are able to do this, Grey DeLisle and Tara Strong being perfect examples. However, it's likely Jessie and Zach don't have this talent. Bummer.

        Loading editor
    • If you look on zach's twitter, he has matured...alot.

      But yes, I also noticed their voices changing even through the series. Even Katara too. I actually didn;t notice the difference in Iroh's voices

        Loading editor
    • Katara? Yes, somewhat. Though I think Mae can still do Katara's voice. She plays Tinkerbell in those new Disney movies and Tinkerbell's voice is even more childlike than Katara's.

    • Thinking about this made me imagine a Toph teenage-viglante spinoff series between classes today, in which she once again takes on the mantle of the Blind Bandit to fight the rising crime in Republic City . . . and causing a lot of mayhem in doing so, but eventually being rewarded for it anyways (shrugging off damages as billable to the Beifong Estate, which I'm sure her parents would enjoy).

      I think I need a better hobby... O_o

        Loading editor
    • That would be a lot of fun to watch I think =D

        Loading editor
    • Heh. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so, then.  :)

      I guess I'd really just like to see that side of Toph, and at that age. Seeing her teach Metalbending in The Promise was great and all, especially since it help shed a more mature light on her than most thought she was capable of standing in, but it'd certianly be worth the money spent to see her in her "rebellious teenage" years, 'specially since she was such a free spirit to begin with. And somehow...that led to me picturing her destroying the streets of Republic City with huge waves of Earthbending, essentially to catch criminal via complete overkill to relieve her teeenage angst. Like a Metalbending/Earthbending, female version of The Dark Knight... I think she could certianly give Batman a run for his money on that account. (Toph-bias coming out again...)

       (On a related note, what do you think of this picture I found on tumblr?)

    • so even lost adventures are part of the timeline?

        Loading editor
    • No way, we need more Toph! =D Toph rocks!

      I thought that was one of the highlights of Part II, I felt it really added depth to her character.

      Yeah, seeing her as a rebellious teen would be fun. Would be fun to see the girls hanging in like their late teens, early twenties as well =) All of them, including Ozai's Angels ^^

      Whoo yeah, even Batman would be needing to rethink his strategy if he had to fight Toph. He can glide about with his wing-like cape. Toph can literally control the earth.

      Oh hey! I saw this piece =) That's jeftoon1's work from DA. Great stuff, no? =D

      I have to say I like Toph much more than Lin, but they look pretty damn cool in this picture.

      Check out this guy's newest work: http://th01.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2013/034/d/3/inside_republic_city__sato_heiress_by_jeftoon01-d5tpto4.jpg

      I swear to God, I'm in love here. =)


      Yup, The Lost Adventures are part of the timeline. Most of them anyway, a small handful of them are not considered canon.

    • I'll just leave you and jeftoon alone, then....Doesn't wish to interfere with their romance...

      And yeah, that was a major highlight for me as a Toph fan. Perhaps part of the reason I didn't overreact to the rushed character development/"backtracking" for Zuko, Aang, and the like in The Promise, was because I had already had to go through that for Toph in "The Runaway". It seems like Katara and Toph had mended their relationship as it stood in "The Chase" by the time of "Tales of Ba Sing Se", where it was happily replaced with what looked like a healthy sister-sister (though partially also surrogate mother-daughter) relationship. So, when "The Runaway" came about, the sudden return of bitterness between the two of them with little to no warning just felt like "backtracking" to me, the whole fight a poorly-done rehash of what took place in "The Chase". Feeling I owed it to the character to at least try and understand what they were going for, though, I eventually was able to overcome my disgust for the way it was handled and let the good in the episode (the talk between Sokka and Toph, and Toph dictating a letter to her parents to Katara, stand out the most to me) balance out the bad in my eyes, at first artificially but eventually coming more naturally to me.

      The Promise Part 2, though, really made up for it in my eyes, as it really returned to me a more mature conception of the character & one that I had begun to wonder if I had been wrong in thinking that Bryke shared. It showed that Toph had grown to the degree where she realized that a dogged pursuit of her own dreams was restricting them simply so they could meet her vision of them, just as her parents did to her, and yet was able to maturely decide to give up her metalbending academy so that she would not use it as an outlet for the pain she felt from her relationship with her parents onto her students. It shows that, despite the "tough love" attitude she displays to her friends and students, Toph does have her own moral standards, able to reform her actions when it appears she's being a hypocrite in the way she's applying, and at this point really begins to first step beyond the sphere of her parent's pyschological influence to stand as her own person. Not bad for a thirteen-year old girl, especially when just the year before she was lashing out from the pyschological discomfort of missing her parents despite Lao's authoritarian treatment of her, now is it?

      It's probably for this reason that the somewhat rushed portrayal of Aang and Zuko never really phased me, as I had long since learn to overlook minor faults and to embrace the good still left in the way the Avatar mythos was developing. And from what I've seen, I don't feel like I'm wrong in hoping that these portrayals will eventually be properly balanced out as well.

      And yeah; we need to see them all as teenagers, and Aang, Sokka, and Zuko as well. (Fire Lord Ozai, however, I don't need to see as a teen. =D) And we (the Toph fans among us, I mean) really need to see how Toph acts when in a romantic relationship; if she's not grossly mischaracterized or exagerrated, it seems potentially very interesting (and probably also worth a few laughs along the way).

    • Well that wasn't quite what I meant, I just really like some of his works ^^;

      Yeah, The Runaway while fun I guess can be legitimately accused of backtracking. It was sort of a repeat of the conflict that was more eloquently developed in The Chase, when they were still getting to know each other and thus their personalities clashed frequently.

      Yeah, The Promise, Part II really did a lot of justice to her character's growth and development. Why doesn't anybody else acknowledge this, I wonder.

      Yeah, I'd like to see them just a couple of years older, and I would like to see if Toph has any sort of romance in her near-future. She obviously did if she had Lin, but it needs to be elaborated on eventually.

    • Chuckles. I knew what you meant for the start, of course. 

      It also seemed like it was backtracking in regards to Toph's relationship with her parents, although that's admittedly more subtle. In "The Earth King" Toph seemed to be quite happy about seeing her mother again, although rather nervous about it, only for her to suddenly pronounce "I do hate them" in the aforementioned episode. The way I've rationalized all this, is that the fact that "her mother finally understands me!" was suddenly changed into "Crap! My dad sent bounty hunters after me!" would naturally do quite the number on her relationship with her parents, and so she'd naturally have mixed feelings about entering into a foriegn land without them (while said land was under Fire Nation dominion, no less) after this point. Anything that reminds of her parents wouldn't be  very comfortable for her pyschologically at this point, and so naturally Katara's heavy-handedness would set her off into a total revolt against all morals and rules restricting her. I'm guessing this is what they were going for, anyways,  although they should have played up that angle just a bit more instead introducing a pointless mudfight between her and Katara. (Did. Not. Want.)

      No one acknowledges what The Promise Part 2 did for her character growth, because frankly they aren't willing to do what I did for Toph in "The Runaway" for their own favorite characters, out of some misguided sense of entitledment, and so fail to see the good in what Gene Yang wrote. Add to this the fact that people tend to want to see Toph as a static character whose basically just snark and Earthbending, and most will end up seeing what they want to see in the end, be it bad or good. I could explain in detail what The Promise Part 2 did for her character development (as I did in a more recent edit to the comment above; check it out) at the top of my lungs for several days straight, and still they would issue unjustified complaints which show a complete lack of appreciation for what Gene Yang was attempting to do in the comics.

    • Cool. =)

      Asami just really looked incredible in this one. I definitely am beginning to think she is my favorite character from ALOK. Not to knock Korra, though. She's still cool for the most part.

      Wait, she actually said aloud that she did hate them? God, my memory's lousy.

      LOL, the mudfight did not entertain?

      Yeah, I guess it could've been played up more strongly, the angle on her avoiding any of her old parental influence and memories, with Katara being a constant reminder of them with her own motherly persona. That bounty hunter thing certainly would not help her relationship with her parents, no. Toph's parents clearly don't know how harmful their methods have been.

      No they don't. The haters just keep painting the comics like they suck so bad that there's nothing redeemable in them. I admit, they're not as strong as the show proper, but there are at least a few good points worth acknowledging, and I for one was greatly moved by Toph's story in Part II. But yeah, the fans just don't appreciate what they did give, instead of focusing mostly on their flaws. Again, I acknowledge that they do have serious narrative issues, but I don't think they're crippling. And frankly their is some excellent character development to be found here and there.
