Fifty years since the Hundred Year War ended, and in Republic City, a new sport has developed enough to the point where formal competition is now being held, and for the first time, it will go live in front of an audience of thousands in an area, and countless others through the radio. How will it all go off?
I have so far enjoyed the inside-look into Pro-Bending’s opening match and the characters involved. Characterization, not action, is what made this fanon click for me. KFB has built solid personalities that shine through even in the action-saturated match.
Story – 8.8: An entire fanon revolving around the first Pro-Bending match is unique, but that very same concept forces it to run a little slow.
Action – 9.4: The action is done Shiro Shinobi style here, with everyone’s favorite announcer giving his voice to the match. KFB matches his same commentary stylings as seen in LoK.
Writing – 9.2: Apart from a few minor grammatical hiccups, KFB’s writing is quite good.
Creativity- 9.4: As I said previously, this fanon is the first of its kind. It’s unique.
Believability – 9.5: KFB has crafted a believable tale, with events, emotions, and reactions going as one would expect.
Character Development – 9.0: With only three chapters thus far, there hasn’t been much time for the characters to grow and change, but what little time there has been has brought it on quite nicely.
Average Score: 9.2
Note: All scores are out of ten
Advice for KataraFanboy: Well, there’s not much I can say, other than ensure that your writing is double-checked to prevent errors and such. Goof job.
