Avatar: The Last Air Bender [sic] was great because it was incredibly thoughtful for a childrens show and gave the avatar Aang a lot of big issues to work through. There were love stories, but they evolved over time and didn’t take up all of the screen time. With Legend of Korra, it feels like the writers decided that now that there’s a girl at the center of the story, the show has to turn a high school gossip session over who-kissed-whom. Instead of spending time on character development, Legend of Korra mires its characters in absurd, round-and-round fights over who gets to date one another.

B*tch Magazine advocates for less romance in Korra…

I think Korra has a lot of potential. She’s not a perfect “Mary Sue” character: She’s stubborn, doesn’t always listen to others, and likes to solve problems by force. She has a lot of trouble connecting to the spirit world, makes mistakes, and often ends up apologizing to people. But the show’s focus on romance is not giving her enough time to work through her issues. Instead, she is only ever working on dating. It seems like the writers feel that a show’s audience—even for a children’s show—can only relate to a woman through her love story. And that’s just not true. So let’s please have Korra and Asami ditch Mako, develop as people, and save the world together. Thank you. 


The romance is what made me drop LoK with a yawn when I loved the original series. I never care about who wants to date whom. It’s done to death.

See, this is why I have yet to watch the new LoK episodes. I’m more afraid to discover it than I am excited!

And vote for Korrasami! 8D

KORRASAMI GO! (I’m just glad Makorra isn’t winning. But if Korrasami gets more votes…<3)

I always hesitated between water and air for myself. But if these are correct, I’m totally Air. Totally the worst I can be as well.

And hey
