When I first tuned into Legend of Korra it took a while for me to warm up to it. The characters were teens, they were hot headed and rugged, and the world just wasn’t as enchanting. But there was one character that I really liked, and one ship that I could sail all day long. Bolin, and Borra.
Bolin was charismatic, funny, and just a little weird. That made me love him more than his distant, aloof brother. Plus, he had a hopeless devotion to Korra, and if theres any romance I like its one with hopeless devotion. I was sure that Bolin would be Korra’s steady friend through the entire series, just waiting for her to come around and realize that he was the one, sort of like Aang and Katara. Unfortunately that ship has sunk, and the character has gone a little off the deep end too.
In season two I was a little angry. Bolin devolved from charismatic, funny, and a little weird to sniveling coward who jumps stupidly into every bad relationship possible. Seriously?
He was revived a little in season three. He’s not so annoying anymore, still, he’s not the same character he was on episode one, but thats okay. As far as Borra goes I’m not so disappointed anymore. They gave him Opal and I like that ship more than Borra. So I have come to accept that its not what I expected, or wanted, but it’s still good.
What about you? Anything in LOK that really disappointed you? Any ship that sunk?
