Help! I'm Obsessed with the Avatar

With Book 2 of Legend of Korra coming up on September 13th, I've been obsessed with all things involving the Avatar series: Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Last week I rewatched (I watched them all the first time last year) all of Book 1 of Legend of Korra out of excitement for the upcoming season. I cannot wait to see what the producers do with the show! It was pretty intense last season, and I can't wait to see what happens between Korra and Mako and more bending! I lowkey wish I could bend--being the Avatar seems so cool! If I had to pick one element, I think I'd want to be an earthbender.

So after finishing Book 1 of Legend of Korra, I decided to go back to basics. I decided to start over with the original Avatar. I watched most of the last book of the series, but I had only watched bits and pieces of the older episodes, so I decided to start from the beginning.

I have just finished Book 1 and am going to start on Book 2. I've been getting so into it and spending lots of time in my room lately just to watch it. I'm such a nerd for being so antisocial. I'm usually an extreme extrovert who doesn't like being alone for more than a couple hours, so locking myself in my room to watch the series is a big deal. That just shows my dedication to finishing the series.

There are only a couple downsides to starting over with the series. One, because I know the ending and what happens at the end of the series, I keep getting mad that Aang can only airbend and waterbend a little bit. It does also make me a little too excited because I know what happens towards the end of the series and with Legend of Korra. Two, school is in the way. If it weren't for school, I'd be halfway through the series already. Sheesh, what is school? Ain't nobody got time fo dat! Haha. I'm only kidding, but I wish I had school without the homework.

I may not have cable at school, but I still have so many shows to catch up on. Legend of Korra is one of them. I don't know why I love the series so much, but it's something about the plot that is just very addicting. Now that Book 2 of Korra is coming up, I can't wait to see what happens this time as Korra encounters the spirit world. The graphics look pretty amazing too. I cannot wait til the premiere!

If you're not into the series already, I highly recommend both Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra! The storylines are different, but many aspects of the two shows intertwine with each other, most notably, Katara, who was friends with Aang as a kid but later married him and was Korra's waterbending teacher. I'd love to go into more details, but I don't want to give away too many spoilers if you haven't already checked out the series. It's very complex and well-written.

I hope I've convinced you if you haven't watched it already; let's be friends and watch Book 2 of Korra together!

Chau for now ♥


  1. I have been waiting for what seems like ages of Legend of Korra to come back. Also, I generally blog about TV/movies and the blogosphere gets a little bit lonely when most other people on HerCampus are fashions bloggers. My face lit up when I saw a post about a tv show.

    1. Thanks for reading my post! & yes, I am so excited for it to come back as well. For me, although I do write a lot of fashion posts, I love writing about anything really, as long as it interests me and if it's happening in my life, I'll write about it!

  2. I need to jump on the bandwagon. This is one of the only nerdy things I'm still behind on. I caught up on Doctor Who... now it's time for Avatar. You've inspired me.

    1. Yes! You should definitely catch up while you can before book 2 starts! I'm happy to have inspired you to watch it. [:


Talk to me! If you have something to say about this post, say it! I want to know. Happy commenting! [:
