Okay I love this question but where to start?   
   
Well, I think the characters are beloved so much because in each episode we not only see the strengths of the characters but we also see many of their weaknesses and fears such as Aang feeling a crushing guilt that he left his people to die while he hid in the ice, Katara has her immense anger towards the fire nation because her mother died which also causes her to act motherly with the rest of the group, Sokka has insecurity issues with himself because after their mother died and his father left he was the man of the house and had to protect his little sister but since he isn't a bender he has always felt insignificant (Usually covered up by his need to be funny) and finally Toph who, since her parents emotionally abandoned her since birth, feels compelled to act strong and independent as if she doesn't need anyone else because she thinks that's better then being hurt again (Later on we learn that isn't really how she feels at all but she still tells herself that in order to keep strong)   
   
Through all this we see that the characters are not infallible but people with hopes and fears like the rest of us, making them easily related and thus we actually feel for them when they are happy or sad.   
   
Aaaaand that's the end of my rant but to demonstrate the amount of feels you can get from this show here is a gif that hits me with many feels in a split second.

I'll take every red thumb you give me, but I feel like the Korrah characters are playing too close to the original characters and there won't be as much character development :/

I don't know why I love the show so much. I just do. I think its because when Aang goes into the avatar state he looks like a complete badass and i've learnt more life lessons from Iroh and even Zuko than I have at school. Also I think Toph is awesome, and Sokka has an enormous emotional range and that's pretty cool, like he isn't JUST the comic relief but he's also really loyal and self depricating. And I also loved the whole Aang and Katara thing.

I really love the way the characters are represented at the beginning as compared to the end. Because they are so well put together day to day, it shows a lot about the human condition...


blah blah blah best show evar

Any well-written form of media can make you empathise with the characters.

That's what a good plot should be. Characters going through experiences that the audience can relate to in order to advance viewing immersion. Avatar does that very well
