I recently noticed similarities between A: TLA and HP. Here's why:
- Both stories revolve around protagonists who enter a new world in distress (the world and the characters are in distress).
- Both boys must fight off an evil antagonist.
- There are similarities in each story: each year, Harry acomplishes something and defeats someone. Every season, Aang learns a new element and defeats part of the Fire Nation (with the exception in season two, where the Earth Kingdom falls.

- In HP and the Deathly Hallows, Voldemort yells at Harry, "You are WEAK! Just like your parents!" In the series finale of A: TLA, Ozai yells at Aang, "You are…
It seems as though the popular suspicions of another Avatar series have been true: Viacom signed a deal of the trademarking of "Avatar: The Legend of Korra". Is this what we've been waiting for?

So welcome to the newly-formed A: TAS blog! (Wow, do I sound geeky or what?) For those of you who don't know, A: TAS is a [hilarious] parody of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was created by GanXingba on YouTube, and basically, he (and his co-parody makers, including PsychoSilver) edit down scenes of the original show and do voice-overs to completely change the plot. To put this as simply as possible, this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Ever.
GanXingba (let's call him GX, because the full username is a mouthful) completely changed each character t…
