Fans of the Avatar franchise, particularly its second iteration will have something really cool to watch this entire November: It has been announced that the entire Legend of Korra series will be made available on the Nick App and Nick.com until November 30.

An overview of the series that fans can watch:

  • Book 1: Air, Korra struggles to fight an anti-bender movement led by the mysterious masked leader, Amon.
  • Book 2: Spirits, Korra and Team Avatar embark on a new journey deep into the mythology of the mystical Spirit World to defeat a dark spirit once and for all.
  • Book 3: Change, the world enters a new age when Airbenders begin to reappear and Korra finds herself pitted against a group of dangerous criminals seeking to overthrow not only governments, but the Avatar herself.
  • Book 4: Balance, Avatar Korra is now broken and bruised and begins a journey of self-discovery and survival in a new world where the strong prey upon the weak. When an aggressive military force rises up led by the power hungry Kuvira, the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance and only the Avatar can set things right.
  • Additionally, fans can also watch three new vdeos called “Legend of Korra: Every Bend Ever” Book 1 and Book 2, and 12 Best Moments. There’s also a new game called The Legend of Korra: Epic Trivia Quest, which aims to test the full extent of a fan’s knowledge of the series.

    By now, everyone who’s interested in videogames is aware that Steam is currently running one of their yearly massive sales. But it’s worth pointing out that not every discounted game is appearing on the front page, and there is a chance that you’re missing out on a hidden gem, particularly one that is relevant to our interests here.

    Case in point, the following anime and cartoon-related games are currently on sale:

    The Legend of Korra – a short but sweet third person brawling take on the beloved Nickelodeon series. The game was already a budget title when it was first released, so the current $51 discount makes it even more of a steal.

    Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst and Revolution – both of Cyberconnect’s landmark 3D cel-shaded take on the popular shonen franchise are on sale for 66% and 55% discounts, respectively. The choice of which title to take (if you don’t have them already) will depend on your preference. Do you like story-driven single player content and streamlined combat mechanics? Go with Full Burst. Do you like balanced combat with more options and an updated roster? Go with Revolution. Revolution, being the newer title is significantly more expensive even with the steep discount, so if you prefer it, you have the option of simply adding a few more bucks in order to get both games in a bundled package.

    Injustice: Gods Among Us – Warner Bros and Netherrealm Studios’ Mortal Kombatified take on the Justice league is also on sale with a 50% discount. The game has already gone down in price since its original release, so if you still don’t have a copy, the sale is most likely the right time to get in with the program.

    Dragon Ball Xenoverse – DIMPS’ MMO-inspired take on the Dragon Ball franchise is also on discount. It’s only at 33% right now but the base game is cheaper than the Naruto games so you may still end up getting it cheap, especially considering that it’s relatively newer.

    Now, before you empty your wallets at Steam’s sale, bear in mind that you may want to pace yourself and at least wait until the last day of the sale before buying the above games. Their discounts could still go lower, as anything that isn’t going on 75%-80% discounted rates could still go lower, especially if they’re older games. If you buy it now, you may end up regretting it later if they suddenly drop further in price. The only exception is if it appears on a flash sale, it’s usually the lowest it will go at that point.

    Note: I would like to thank everyone on making my works and everyone else here on Toon Barn great and we here all are wishing you fans of the site a merry Christmas and a Much Better and Happier New Year. I do want to say that even though I haven’t posted much here – That will change in 2015. I’m going to be posting a lot more in 2015 because I feel as though Toon Barn has the right balance that other sites do not have and are not willing to have. I also feel that there has to be a accounting for many of the misconceptions we animation fans face. And in the coming year that will be shown. There is also something new im planning but that has to be discussed. But its something I wanted to do and have an audience for. So watch for it.

    Korra should have been truly amazing.

    Nickelodeon was going through a misstep with the Avatar franchise. The movie many people believed, was being whitewashed. M. Night Shamalan directorial skills were on the wane, and Nickelodeon were going through some crisis with their live action work and overreliance on  SpongeBob.

    So it came as a shock, that Korra arrived and it was going to be something well thought out.

    To be fair, I wasn’t a huge fan of Korra and only saw a smattering of episodes – I believed that they missed out on better voice actors. I also wondered why would one continue from what was already – one of the better animated series in recent decades, that wasn’t a sequel?

    The first season of Korra missed the mark. But in a ironic sense I believed that the last three episodes of the first book were some of the smartest written – because their was a fear it was going to be the last episodes of the whole FRANCHISE.

    So just like the Thundercats – 2011 (which aired around the same time as Korra) it was going to end with parts missing.

    But Nickelodeon asked for 3 more seasons. Which was a nice surprise…until they moved it online in the middle of the Third season.

    Now, Nickelodeon was showing their true colors. One part of the world was ahead of the others – part of the changing landscape of animation – and to prevent the pirates from winning – “as they stated” they moved the show online.

    People were legit angry about it.

    But some minds were changed – and after a while – it went back on Nicktoons Network and later the main network towards its final episode.

    And for the first 3/4ths of that final episode – it was everything you wanted.

    The last part – however was the issue people will be talking about for years.  Unnecessary so.

    What has happened is that if what the creators say was true – then it was the fundamental crux that killed Korra as a leading lady.

    Where was the tragedy between these two? It was way too easy. It was too much parting glances, and shipping between both. Where was the rivalry and the things that would keep them apart?

    I felt that the show lacked some of the choices even Frozen, with its bulllarkey script had. The liaison felt “tacked on”. A call to those on tumblr who in the end of the day were the only supporters of the show.

    The ratings were nothing too special. Nickelodeon was moving on from its “Bad as I want to be, but in a cute way” days of the Icarly/Sam and Cat years and needed series like TMNT and the Power Rangers to do it. Those two shows were stop gaps in the plans for newer live action series which were more boring than their predecessors in the “out of place” department but their scripts are inoffensive to a fault. With two award shows for Music (pretty much sponsored by Vevo and Disney in the highest of Ironies) and its original Kids Choice now adding other series – Nickelodeon is seen as the CNN of the right/left dynamic of DisneyChannel/Disney XD and Cartoon Network/Adult Swim/Boomerang. Centrist to a fault.

    Which makes the whole issue of the ending perplexing. Did Nickelodeon had a inkling this was going to be the final act? Could have it been the reason for the move to online (because other shows do air ahead of the US), and then a move back to the network in a slow burn because it would have been more controversial if it did not air?

    Both Females enter a light tunnel and … nothing? The Ending music doesn’t spill to the end of the frame and beyond, to show that this relationship was too powerful enough to even have a scene?

    It showed something that was wrong in the ending that didn’t happen in Avatar. The latter ending was done with care and concern. This ending shows how much things change in five or so years. Korra’s ending was such a major, major disappointment in the face of its issues with the network and the writers/producers of the show. “What you gonna do, fire me” coming from these same creators/producers of Korra is a joke compared to what John K. went through nearly a generation ago with Nickelodeon.  Its almost a sniveling retort on the way the industry has been broken down into fiefdoms, and how “one needs connections with the right people” to keep the weakness of the narrative going.

    There is a inherent weakness, and maybe lack of understanding and dubious grandstanding – with a lot of North American animated productions in the last five or six years. They speak to an audience that is already “shellshocked” (by our modern way of life after 9/11) by words and terms that they cannot handle – that existed before them, and they have no way of handling such idioms. They see the world in terms of trigger warnings, safe spaces, and refashioned arguments to suite their paradigm because the leaders of our country did it before when it came to handling the issues of battle. That is what has happened to the industry. Its now speaking to a culture that has all the money in the world, and since money has become speech, that audience are dictating to artists what they want in the story and not the story the artist or cartoonist wants to say. It is a five year difference – but to see the Korra Team miss the mark here, at the moment of greatest importance to this craft, those last five minutes; when everything is most desperate in action animation-if not all of animation, should scare the heck out of you if your a fan of cartoons!

    If The Korra Team cant get why people are wondering why they only hear small cheers, in front of hundreds puzzled shouts – then maybe Avatar was a flash in the pan. A Miracle. The Last Great Animated Action Series of its day.

    And maybe, soul searching for us fans is needed. If Hillenburg is “coming home”, but Ward is gone…what does that say about Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network, nea, the North American Animation mythos and culture as a whole?

    Korra could have walked alone to the pillar of light and been the strongest of her time,

    As strong as Serena was.

    As strong as Jem was, as strong As Cheetara was, as strong as Brite was.

    As strong as Adora was.

    You folks at Korra Team missed the mark, the point and the plot.

    And that, maybe the greatest tragedy our fanbase – the animation fanbase has seen.

    With The Legend of Korra’s swan song fast approaching, us Korra fans need to get as much Korra content as possible in as many mediums and platforms available and thankfully, Platinum Games has developed a third person beat ‘em up game adaptation of the series.

    Legend of Korra is one of those rare animated franchises that had a massive and loyal fanbase but still fell short of the network’s expectations ratings-wise because it was saddled with an inconsistent airing schedule that was made worse by the lack of announcements over said changes. Thankfully, unlike Motorcity, the Legend of Korra wasn’t cancelled unceremoniously and was allowed to finish its third season via Nick.com and the Nickelodeon app.

    …and it turns out things aren’t so bad for us fans who want to see things through the end. At the very least, we’re not going to be left hanging as Legend of Korra will be returning to Nick.com and the Nick App on October 3rd for its fourth and final season. You can check out the official message straight from the source:

    Yesterday, we posted a blog entry about an upcoming action game based on The Legend of Korra franchise, which is being developed by Platinum Games and published by Activision. Now, Activision and Nickelodeon have jointly announced additional details about the game, particularly a new contest that will let fans join in on the creative process.

    According to the announcement, fans of The Legend of Korra will be given a chance to choose the cover art that will be used for the video game, based on a voting system that lets people choose between three different concepts drawn by one of the show’s character designers, Christie Tseng. To join in on the fun, Korra fans can visit www.facebook.com/legendofkorra to cast their vote. Voting will run through June 30 at midnight PST.

    The Legend of Korra videogame is slated for a fall 2014 release and will be multiplatform, with ports coming to the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PC. There will also be a handheld Legend of Korra game developed for the Nintendo 3DS by webfoot Technologies, which will feature a story similar to the console versions, but will use a turn based strategy RPG engine.

    If you’re a fan of The Legend of Korra and you think tomorrow’s debut of Book 3 is the only good news, you’ll be pleasantly surprised because it’s been announced that a video game is in the works, with Platinum Games in charge of development. If you’re not familiar with Platinum games, they’re the developer responsible for the quirky action game Bayonetta, so you can rest assured that The Legend of Korra’s martial arts and fantasy elements will be done justice in the game.

    According to IGN’s report, The Legend of Korra videogame will have ports for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PC so it’s going to be all sorts of shiny and next gen-y. It was also said that the story for the game is being written by series writer Tim Hedrick, and will be set in the timeframe between the second and third seasons. Activision will be publishing the game.

    After a long wait, the much-anticipated return of The Legend of Korra is finally here!

    Well, it’s not exactly here right now. It’s going to happen this coming Friday, June 27, at 7 PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon. The return of the extremely popular animated action series will be heralded by two back-to-back episodes titled “A Breath of Fresh Air” and “Rebirth,” followed by a special bonus episode titled “The Earth Queen.” After the debut, new half hour episodes will continue to roll out every Friday at 8 pm ET/PT starting on July 11.

    The first two episodes of Book 3 will focus on the events after Harmonic Convergence, with Avatar Korra discovering that her decision to leave the spirit portals open actually has some unexpected consequences. Namely, the spirit vines have overgrown Republic City and Airbenders are suddenly popping up across the four nations. Now Korra, Tenzin, and Team Avatar go on a quest to search for new Airbenders in an effort to recruit them and rebuild the Air Nation. However, a band of sinister criminals have banded together in order to hunt down the Avatar.

    Nickelodeon and Dark Horse’s graphic novel Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift Part 1 managed to debut at the top of the New York Times’ Best Sellers list for the week, beating the massively popular The Walking Dead Compendium. The new graphic novel continues Avatar: The Last Airbender, and serves as a great companion to The Legend of Korra.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift Part 1 was written and illustrated by Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru, with help and input from Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. The story focuses on Aang as he asks his friends for help in honoring an Air Nomad holiday, which hasn’t been celebrated in over a century.

    However, cryptic visits from the spirit of an earlier Avatar leads Aang to discover a jointly owned Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom refinery that operates on land sacred to the Airbenders. Is this the cause of the pollution Aang finds there or is something more mysterious happening?

    Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, despite receiving praise from fans and critics alike, went through a bit of a rough spot in terms of ratings due to some problems with scheduling, but it seems like there’s no need to worry about the series’ future as co-creator Bryan Konietzko has recently used his Tumblr account in order to provide a teaser for Book 3.

    Howdy, friends. I haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been buried under deadlines as well as under the weather. We are all really excited with how Book 3 is turning out. As promised, it features a lot more Lin Beifong than Book 2, so I thought I’d share a cool screen shot of her. OK, I’m going to crawl back underneath my deadlines and cough.

    Nickelodeon has just announced the launch of a new line of Avatars based on..urhm…the latest Avatar, Korra, for the Xbox Live Marketplace.

    Legend of Korra's Book 2 to End This Month?

    After the frequent change in schedules and a brief hiatus, Legend of Korra is back with a new time, but this piece of good news is piggy-backed on really bad news, as Co-creator Bryan Konietzko has stated that Book 2 will be ending this month. As for how that’s possible, Nick will be airing one episode tonight and next Friday, with the remaining episodes being aired in one hour blocks in Novembers 15th and 22nd:

    Friday, Nov. 1, 8:00pm – Episode 9
    Friday, Nov. 8, 8:00pm – Episode 10
    Friday, Nov. 15, 8:00pm – Episodes 11 & 12 (one hour!)
    Friday, Nov. 22, 8:00pm – Episodes 13 & 14 (one hour finale!)

    Via his tumbler account, Konietzko made the following statement:

    So you can see with those two one-hours it made more sense to start at 8:00, and to just air the rest all at the same start time.

    Hard to believe it is almost over. These episodes, especially the last four, pack a serious wallop, so those are going to be two incredibly dense, juicy one-hours. It has been a long, hard road to get these episodes finished. In fact, we’re still finishing the last one! It’s always down to the wire with us. Have a fun, safe Halloween and I hope you enjoy the back end of Book 2!
