Two days ago, we were given the information that the identity of Lin Beifong’s father as well as information on the subset of Air Bending was going to be revealed in The Legend of Korra. I had explained that these two aspects would be revealed in Book 2, but I may have had a bit of a slip-up.
While I was reading Morgan Bannon’s (Airspeed Prime) latest post on Avatar: The Last Airbender Online, he pointed out a very interesting observation: this information was never confirmed for Book 2, specifically. While going over the Tumblr post again that had revealed this information, I realized that Morgan was correct.
Even though we will learn about Lin Beifong’s mother as well as the Subset to Air Bending at some point in time, we can’t necessarily confirm that this information will be revealed in Book 2.

Amidst all the anger and animosity towards Nickelodeon, I’ve noticed that some of that anger has trickled onto the plates of The Legend of Korra’s creators, Mike and Bryan. I’ve read comments along the lines of Why aren’t Mike and Bryan announcing the release date? and I hate how the creators won’t give us Book 2’s release date. While I respect the passion that some of these fans clearly have for the show, I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t call them out.
What these fans are saying is completely inaccurate.
In this scenario, Mike and Bryan are essentially being framed for a crime that they didn’t commit. They are taking the blame for something that is completely out of their control because, quite frankly, Book 2’s release date is completely out of Mike and Bryan’s hands.
Mike and Bryan have no say in the release date for their series’ as well as the announcement for the release date. That decision lies solely in the hands of – you guessed it – Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon makes that decision on their own terms and they do not involve Mike and Bryan at all.
So if you want to complain to someone about not knowing the release, don’t complain to Mike and Bryan, don’t complain to me (ridiculous, I know, but I have heard complaints for not announcing a release date), and don’t complain to the voice actors involved in The Legend of Korra.

A few days ago, an event called Momocon was held and Steve Blum (voice of Amon), Sifu Kisu (martial arts master), and Sifu Rodriguez (consultant for Toph) were present for a question and answer session.
During the question and answer, fans were able to obtain new information on Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. What we now know is that a subset to Air Bending will be shown and the identity of Lin Beifong’s father will be revealed.
It’s interesting because these are two speculative topics I’ve already covered and voiced my opinion on. Many months ago, I speculated that the Duke could be Lin Beifong’s father. I also speculated the possibility of a subset to Air Bending and I ultimately rejected the likelihood of it being revealed to us.

Back to one of my all-time favorite blogging topics: the Nickelodeon network. Only this time, I’m here to defend their most recent acts of stupidity. Over the last few months, there have been several instances where Legend of Korra fans have almost expected an announcement for Book 2’s release date. In both instances, fans were severely disappointed.
The first instance was when fans expected a trailer of some sort to air during the television premiere of The Last Airbender. I don’t really feel like reiterating why exactly this was expected, but if you’re interested in that, you can read my first official “I Hate Nickelodeon” fan mail that I posted a few months ago.
After the fandom got over that, we all got our hopes up for the Nickelodeon Upfront 2013 where Nickelodeon revealed their television line up for the upcoming year. Most of us expected them to announce a Book 2 release date since a Book 1 release date had been announced at the 2012 Upfront. We were disappointed once again when no news showed up, and all of you unleashed your anger into an open thread I posted when I was too disgusted to rant.
I’ve now digested most of this ridiculousness and I think I’m starting to see things a bit more clearly. What if Nickelodeon hasn’t revealed a release date because they literally don’t know it themselves? What if we’ve been complaining about not having information that doesn’t even exist? It’s certainly a possibility, and it might even be reality.

The past few weeks haven’t been the best for Legend of Korra fans. All this hype was built up for Nickelodeon Upfront 2013 and then – disappointment. Complete and utter disappointment. But it’s time to move on; dwelling on the past can be dangerous and depressing.
Besides, there are plenty of things we fans have to look forward to. There are, in fact, three pretty big things we have to look forward to in the coming months. And even though I’ve been wrong on pretty much everything up to this point, I think it’s safe to let our guards down and truly anticipate these upcoming events:

Bryan Konietzko went at it on Tumblr earlier today to reveal a bit more Book 2 news. We didn’t get any kind of picture this time, but we received some information that was oddly left out at Comic-Con 2012.
We’ve known all along that Korra’s Male-Twin cousin’s name would be Desena, but Korra’s Female-Twin cousin was left nameless for a while. Today, she received a name.
Bryan has used his Tumblr to announce that the female-cousin’s name will be Eska.

I’m honestly at a loss for words…
I really don’t know what to say. I decided to write this post as soon as it became official: no Book 2 release date was announced. You are currently reading my raw, uncensored emotions.
F**k this sh*t!
Just when all the points seem to line up perfectly, Legend of Korra fans still get screwed over by Nickelodeon. I’m even angrier at the fact that I got all of you so hyped for this, only to be disappointed. That being said, I truly am very sorry for hyping all of you up disappointment – yet again.
