if you don't have an Uncle like Iroh, than you become like Iroh, care about all, be honest, be strong when others can't, and care for your nephew more than your niece because she's crazy and needs to be stopped

wait, dont bomb him out yet, he has a point, he existed on someone imagination and translated to a visual universe reproduced as an animation, within the interpretation of someones or multiple mixed philosophies that turned out to be wise enough to mark people on their growing nature. so yeah, he wasnt real in our material reality, but the consolidation of him as a concept and a complex idea makes him exist on paper, on mind and for some, as a proper example of knowledge

Don't think so, even when the avatar enters the spirit world the body stays and needs to be protected, man and spirit are separated, "spoiler" also most likely why Iroh was not changed by Korra's emotion like the spirits was.

Just based on your comment I went and watched the entire second season of The Legend of Korra and I lost my **** when I saw Iroh! The build up to the finale was great but then... the finale was good.. but awful at the same time.. It was a good plot twist but in the most ****** up way possible yet somehow still being anti-climactic.

Forgive me I still may be a little surprised as I just got done watching it, but I can't believe that the foundation for the entire series which was the Avatar State and all the past lives tied into it was just destroyed in seconds after making us follow it through a series and a half... it's just shocking. Will Korra just start over now as the first avatar in a new cycle?

I guess it's going to be kinda like "Spirits can now enter this world so the past avatars may do some kind of cameo or something". And I highly doubt it's going to be severed forever. Remember in the TLA when the Guru told aang that if he left in that moment he could never go into Avatar State again?

And he did. So maybe they'll find a way to reconnect the past avatars. There must be some sage/old wise guy who may know of a way. You never know.

Time for my opinion of the shows:

LoK is great. I like the show a lot, but it wasn't as 'touching' as ATLA. It might be because I was younger during ATLA and it's the original, but I was disappointed with a couple things in LoK.

The Avatar State. In ATLA, the Avatar State was such an emotional and spiritual incident. When Aang lost Oppa in the desert he was so upset that he couldn't control himself and the Avatar State just happened. It was about emotional control and how powerful this state can be when he wasn't controlling these emotions. Katara risked her life and grabbed his arm. That was an amazing scene.

Korra uses the Avatar State to win races against Jinora.

Lightning. Again, the use of lightning in ATLA was an emotional and 'touching' incident. It was rare; only for the strong hearted. Iroh didn't even want Zuko to ATTEMPT it because of how dangerous it was.

Now any fire bender can use it.

I understand that LoK is like an "industrial revolution" of bending (as well as industry), but where's the emotion? Where's the heart that the characters put in themselves in ATLA?

No matter how many feels I get from LoK, it's just not the same.

Lightening redirection was dangerous, lightening bending was not. The reason lightening bending wasn't that much used was probably because the amount of energy involved would be tiring to use, which would explain why Azula, whose bending was bursting with more energy than anyone else, was the only one to use it in actual combat.

I can understand that argument on how certain abilities tend to lose that emotional touch but the same can be said about most shows, especially Dragonball Z. When Goku turned Super Saiyan for the first time, it was just the absolute peak of a legendary warrior status. Later on, Anyone could essentially become a Super Saiyan just through genetics where it was reduced to a "child's play thing".

Don't forget some of the episodes that were just mini adventures in the first avatar. Now it seems that every new episode is just plot, plot, plot. Were did all the fun little story's go, like when Sokka got his own sword or when Aang led the opposing tribes across the Great Divide?

The reason for having so many fun/filler episodes in A:TLA was to emphasize how long and time-consuming the Gaang's journey was. They were traveling across the world several times, and thus covering a lot of ground and seeing a lot of interesting sights. The reason for having so little of that in LoK is that most of the plot takes place in one city, and the particular kinds of struggles there are never stop. The fight is so close to home that there's no chance for a break. However, I believe Book 3 at least (maybe 4 too) will have some more of that fun/fillery feel since it will supposedly contain a lot of stuff about the Earth Kingdom and Lin.

I haven't actually seen the second season of Korra, but I'm going to base what I'm going to say off another show, namely Ranma 1/2. It's not a very serious show, but there are "emotion" based attacks which link into what 'ATLA' used with the avatar state / lightning bending.   
   
Aang is very spirtual and avatar state became tied into his anger and depression because they were his strongest emotions; the rest of his emotions that could start up the avatar state, such as a drive to be better than anyone, were pushed down due to his training. His happiness and love only pushed the avatar state away.   
   
Korra, however, is very self centered, at least from what I gathered in season 1. Not completely rude, but she is very confident in her abilities until they explode in her face. Only air bending, which was to make yourself aware of the world around you, gave her trouble because she was so focused on her own image.   
   
This is why she can use the avatar state at will after reaching it once, because her strongest emotions revolve around herself. She /wants/ to win badly, with every fiber of her being, and connects to the avatar state through those emotions. Aang wanted to find Appa, with every fiber of his being, but his anger and depression effected his mind, making him unable to stop the state.   
   
As for lightning bending, I'd say it's probably taught to all fire benders at an early age due to the increase in electrical usage. This would be for jobs and for safety. I can't say for certain what emotions tie into lightning bending, I don't really remember Iroh's explanation, but if you're taught something at an early age, the state you were in when you learned it tends to stick with you. They probably teach the children to level their emotions so they can bend lightning completely out of reflex.   
   
Or at least that's what I think.

It's honestly one of the best shows I've watched/read. It's a real shame they aren't going to remake it like they are with Sailor Moon. Those two were pretty close together popularity wise, though Ranma was more popular in Japan. Plus they were put into a lot of stories together.

Still, I would have liked to see the Saffron fight animated.

Definitely is on the top ranks of my shows, too. I always watched it when I was little and I really love the special humor of Rumiko also boobs!

That's why I really like Inuyasha, too. I feel like it has the same kind of silly humor with the relationship of Inuyasha and Kagome, although it feels a bit more serious.
Though I have to admit I have neither read nor watched everything of both shows

I enjoyed Inuyasha, but not as much as Ranma. Probably because of how they dragged Inuyasha out quite a bit. But you actually miss quite a bit by not reading the manga. They're several characters that don't appear in Ranma 1/2's anime, though there's also a character that /only/ appears in the anime, which is Sasuke: Kuno's servant.

There's also Konatsu, the 'male' Kunoichi, that works for Ukyo after being abandoned by her(his) evil step-mother / sisters. Saffron, however, is probably the biggest villian Ranma had to fight and it was a real shame they didn't continue the series after that fight.

Picture related. It's Konatsu.

I gotta read it sometime when I got more time but at the moment I'm reading through all of the Warhammer 40K novels...it's probably gonna be the manga, because I always feel like that's the original and not altered to fit into 20 minutes-or-so episodes

I actually know Saffron because I bought the last comic to see how it all ends. And it is indeed quite a rapid end, with Ranma beating him and then the wedding and then it's over....was actually quite a bit disappointed back then...

To be honest I'm not too upset with the ending. Yeah, it's a shame it ended, but at the same time it allowed fans to make a huge amount of content based on what happened afterwards, or before. Ranma 1/2 has a very large fan base that have created many stories and what not. I think one of the more popular stories was the Sailor Sun series, which is pretty okay, even if it's a little cliche.

Hope you enjoy your Warhammer, though. I'm not too keen on robots and space things, otherwise I'd say I'd check it out.

Yeah I can also understand that she wanted to do something else after doing the manga for 9 (?) years And it also was very nice, the edition I had bought had little letters in the back from fans who wrote Rumiko since it was about 10 or so years after it had actually ended...
Also, well, everything has to end sometimes...and for that she had made a very nice ending with the wedding and all, though I can't help but feel a little emotional thinking back and all

Sure do, it's exactly my thing, being brutal and grimdark and all

Also where's that pic from? From the art style I'd say One Piece but I'm not sure

Supposedly she went on to do Inuyasha, since it was what she really wanted to do, and a lot of things from Ranma influenced Inuyasha. The flea guy, for instance, was base off Happosai and his 'wife' in the anime was based off Cologne. They both used the same voice actor too, just like Inuyasha and Ranma's male form had the same voice actor. A huge amount of the villains were also influenced by Ranma characters.

Also, yes, that image was from One Piece. It's the handsome Duval.
