20130306-222737.jpg

I’ve been planning on doing some sort of give away on this blog for some time now, but I was never sure what to actually give away. Surly Legend of Korra action figures wouldn’t do. But what about a copy of Book 1’s DVD?

That’s when I knew I had found the perfect prize. In order to repay each and every one of you for your loyalty to this blog, I wanted to hold a giveaway in which the winner receives a free copy of Book 1 of The Legend of Korra’s DVD – completely free of charge (obviously).

Signing up is extremely simple and it should take you less than a minute:

All you need to do is follow me on Twitter @kevshah95 and @LegendofKorraWp (if you haven’t already), then tweet the link of this post to all of your followers. You can use the Twitter button at the bottom of this post to do that. If you don’t have a Twitter, make one! You don’t have to use it, just make one so you can give yourself a shot at a free copy of Book 1’s DVD.

Once you’ve done that, comment your Twitter name below so I can verify that you followed the twitter accounts. If you do not leave your twitter name below, you will not be entered.

The winner will randomly be chosen on March 29th in honor of the Matsuri Con and the DVD will be shipped to the address of his or her choice.

History is Repeating itself When it Comes to the Development of The Legend of Korra – Will Book 2 Really Release this April?

Just to clarify, the image above depicts a scene from Book 1’s Color Correction Session, not Book 2’s.

When it comes to the development of Book 2, history is repeating itself. The Crew is currently hard at work on color corrections for the new season. A year ago from today the Crew was hard at work on color corrections for Book 1.

This may not seem like such a big deal, but this is most definitely a good thing. It’s a good thing for Legend of Korra fans such as us as well as the show’s creators.

History repeating itself is good for us because it means that the schedule for Book 2’s arrival should be similar to that of Book 1. It’s good for the creators because they shouldn’t have to hear fans complaining about The Legend of Korra’s absence for much longer.

Book 1 of The Legend of Korra DVD to Release on May 21st, 2013 [Update: Release Date was Inaccurate]

Update: It looks like Amazon might have made a mistake. Their page now states that a release date is yet to be announced, thus making the previous release date invalid. Maybe we can be optimistic and expect an earlier release date now? It’s really up in the air at this point. Big thanks to Airspeed Prime from Avatar: The Last Airbender Online for pointing this out.

We finally have one of the two release dates we’ve been anticipating for several months. Book 1 of The Legend of Korra will finally hit shelves on May 21st of this year. This information comes from Amazon, who for the longest time posted that no release date was announced, but that post has since been updated with the actual release date.

A May release month is much further down the line than I would have predicted, especially since the cast commentaries were completed a month ago, but it’s no big deal.

The fact that Mike and Bryan decided to finally relay this information to the fandom is great. Hopefully they’ll decide to relay some more information in the area of “release dates” sometime soon.

Hear me Talk about The Legend of Korra on Avatar: The Last Airbender Online’s Podcast

Earlier this morning, 6 AM to be exact, I guest-stared on Avatar: The Last Airbender Online’s official Podcast. Morgan Bannon, also known as Airspeed Prime on their hugely popular fan site, interviewed me and asked some questions about my take on running an Avatar Fan Site or blog. We then went into some Book 1 discussion as well as Book 2 speculation. If you want to hear more about my thoughts on The Legend of Korra, be sure to check out the Podcast.

Republic City Needs to be Explored More in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra

One thing I have learned over the years is that there’s no such thing as a perfect show. The Last Airbender was probably one of the best series’ of television I have ever seen, yet the show did have its fair share of flaws. The same thing can be said for The Legend of Korra.

One thing I noticed in Book 1 of The Legend of Korra was that Mike and Bryan really shied away from showing off Republic City. With the invention of the Satomobile and the constant use of Naga (who can walk through a city much easier than Appa would have been able to), we never really had the chance to see Republic City for the awesome city it supposedly is.

Instead, we saw the same parts of Republic City over and over again in different episodes. Personally, I never felt as attached to Republic City as I felt towards Ba Sing Se mostly because I have yet to see the city as a whole. I’ve seen Air Temple Island and the Pro Bending arena loads of times, but what about the shops and merchants on the sides of the streets? Or the towering sky scrapers that Mike and Bryan talked so much about?

We saw parts of Republic City that were meant to continue the story line, but there was very little exploration that was actually done.

Fan-Made Legend of Korra YouTube Series Talks About the Aftermath of Book 1

The Republic

The biggest problem I’ve always had with Book 2 is the fact that it takes place 6 months after the events of Book 1. At the end of Book 1, the big picture of Amon and his tyranny were cleared up, but there were still a lot of loose ends in terms of the overall plot line.

The biggest loose end has to be whether or not the Equalist Regime ended completely or not. You can’t expect such a large rebellion to simply die out once their leader has been killed. But since Book 2 contains its own separate plot line, it’s doubtful that the regime will even be mentioned.

Thankfully for us, we have the creative minds of the fan base to help fill in the gaps that Mike and Bryan left for us. So what really did happen directly after Korra ended Amon’s wrath? Obviously, we all probably have our own theory, and we can probably tell it to as many people as we please. But the YouTube group known as The Republic Online has the unique ability to show it to us, and show it to us well.

The Republic Online has created a live-action YouTube show that essentially portrays their vision of what really happened after Amon and Tarrlock were killed (yes, they were killed). I don’t want to spoil anything because the shows are extremely well done and the special effects are surprisingly good, but I will say that they’re well worth watching.

Book 1 of The Legend of Korra’s DVD to Have Commentary from the Voice Actors

A couple of weeks ago, we found out that the DVD for Book 1 of The Legend of Korra was reportedly “coming soon”. We still don’t know exactly how “soon” it will be out by, but if you ask me, I’d expect it to hit stores just before Christmas.

Anyways, Bryan Konietzko used his Tumblr a few days ago to break some more news in regards to the DVD. According to Konietzko, the DVD will have a special commentary section in which the voice actors/actresses talk about Book 1 of The Legend of Korra.
