So, Im NOT going to San Diego Comic Con this year. Things fell through, and it just didnt happen. Believe me, if I had a fairy godmother who could poof me there, I would JUMP that pixie!
Hopefully when I whine for videos and funny stories and cosplay pics from you guys, youll be good enough to indulge me.
WHO CRAPPED THEIR PANTS AT THE AVATAR SERIES FINALE?!
I did. It was AMAZING. The animation and design and music was so beautiful
I could go Crazy Foaming Guy. SRSLY.
Aangs moral and spiritual journey, it was awesome. Stood up against friends, foes, former lives, and still was able to do what he felt was right while saving the day. Some folks say he was lame, but I thought it was very brave and touching. Also? BIG TURTLES. O_O
Ozai was absolutely TERRIFYING. He was just UNSTOPPABLE, and hes a really fast undresser! 8D The music really added to it. Nick, sell me soundtracks. I pay you good money! The rock into Aangs back unlocking the Avatar mode was kinda lame, tho. I would have liked it better if redirecting lighting would have fixed it
at least it would have tied back into the lightning-death that blocked it in the first place. When Aang went Avatar the battle was so intense
I think the only thing scarier than Lord Ozai might be Aang when hes in battle mode. Oh, but the kids belittling Ozai? NOT COOL. Ozais been such a ferocious villain, I frowned when he was cheapened into Captain Hook. It wasnt right.
Oh, Azula, I know I said I wanted you to break down, but wow. It was horrifying to watch, even if the fight was out-of-control awesome. I hope Mai and Ty Lee can take time from their schedules to help you a little.
Katara, Toph (MELONLORD), Sokka, and Suki you were ALL great. I damn near freaked when I thought Toph and Sokka might bite the big one.
Iroh and Zuko Im so glad yall made up! Zuko, tell Iroh you used Jun to find him. Thatll perk him up!
Order of the White Lotus was pretty fly, y/y/y? BUMI HOLY SHIT. I knew you were a badass
Oh, and Pakkana? CANON, BIZNATCHES. Yeah, all the other shipwars can stuff it, I got my ship. It is dry, wrinkled sexytiems nao. And, even more than that, the idea of a Grandpakku is so cute to me. PREPARE FOR INFLOOD OF PAKKU ARTZ OH NOES!
Overall the finale was great and beautiful and emotional and a wonderful end to a wonderful series, and quite frankly I think I lack the eloquence to do justice to the feelings of awe I have for the finale and the series.
Looking back on Avatar as a whole, I can now say my favorite episodes are:
Winter Solstice, part II
The Waterbending Master
Return to Omashu
Day of Black Sun, part I and II
The Boiling Rock, part I and II
And all the season finales
plus pretty much a million runner ups,
With the best character episode being The Puppetmaster and Zuko Alone. The best fight scenes I believe go to Bato of the Watertribe, The Waterbending Master, Return to Omashu, The Chase, The Drill, and the season finales.
GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW
But now that its over (or at least this part of it)...life
WUT U MEEN WUT NAO? DONT U KNOW THE AZTEC CALANDAR ENDS JULY 19 2008 BOOTER?
Yeah, I know. After three and a half years, its hard to imagine no more new episodes for this particular saga (spinoffs plz?). Or no new episodes being held hostage at Nick (no, I definitely wont miss that part of Avatar).
Im sad, I guess. But only for the days of discussion and conspiracy that came with unseen eps. Now that all the eps are aired and most of the questions have been answered.
Oh, who am I kidding? There will always be discussion and conspiracy forever and evar!
I, for one, am psyched and rarin to watch the whole series again, starting from episode one. Really get down deep and appreciate it for its finer details as well as its whole. See the progression of characters and story in one smooth flow. Relive the fight scenes, the culture, and the totally lulzy moments. Its gonna be a glorious rewatch!
As for arts, dont worry, Im not stopping just because the main series is finished. I plan to continue gagstrips to a hundred, and all those loose ends have me ITCHING to do comics. I know I will be making a big Thank You comic for the folks at Avatar for making a wonderful series.
But aside from that, I think you can expect to see more art from my other fandoms, the ones that have been neglected since Avatar took a chokehold on my life. Not to mention the MASSIVE overhaul TRV has been getting
complete with redesigns, woo.
*gets to work*
