I am very late to the party folks. I watched glimpse of Avatar when it was shown on tv and i had nothing to do at that time. I thought it was good but I wasnt particularly interested in it. And then I saw an artbook of Legend of Korra in a bookshop, and thought, hm..... maybe I should watch it. I started with Avatar, and I watch episode after episode after episode. I couldnt do that even with some of my favourite anime. I finished it, and it is one of my favourite shows ever.
I am currently watching Legend of Korra, and I'm currently at book 3. Compared to Avatar, it is darker, more mature, and makes me scratch my head. The characters in Korra though are more interesting and fun, I only liked a few of the cast in Avatar, but I like most of them in Korra. And the soundtrack, oh I love it! So spiritual.
I have to say, watching Korra has made me wanna try meditating. Put it in my routine, and see what kind of changes it will make to my life.
By the way, my favourite characters in Avatar are Toph for female, and Zuko for male. For Korra, I like most of the cast really, but if i have to pick for now, it would be Tenzin and Jinora.
