I'm not surprised at all. I've been going to denofgeek.com just to read the reviews on each episode. The reviews are well written and discuss the more mature themes that show up in the series thus far.

I absolutely love this show. Korra is a fantastic protagonist and I love all the other characters as well. Great character development, storyline, setting, music, character designs, art quality, and fight scenes. If I had one qualm with this series, it's that waiting an entire week for the next episode can be excruciating.

Isn't anime only considered to be from Japan, so Avatar doesn't really count as an anime since it's Western animation and only takes inspiration from Japanese animation. Then again, I guess it really doesn't matter.

Yes, I'm not sure why it's in this section. I believe LoK is created here in America, while the animation studios are Korean.

With that said, the series as you stated does have a good storyline, art quality, and music.

Avatars are only human so they have the same lifespans as anyone else and they get sick in the same ways as anyone.

Kitara lived as women generally live longer to begin with, but she is assumed to be the only one left, though she said most of her friends have past, so can we assume there may be one or two out there? So, Aang was 12 when he came out of the ice, and Kitara was what, 14? 70 years later (hopefully the number of years gone by is approximate) then Aang to that date would have been 82 years old, however, because Korra is the avatar and at the age of 16 then from that we know that Aang himself only lived to the age of 66 years old when he past away. Of course we don't know the cause, 66 is still early.

Still, I wonder if we're going to see Aang's other two kids in cameos or Sokka's descendants. We may not see them this season if ever.

The soundtrack is excellent.

I can't wait for Korra to really kick ass. They depicted her as physically strong (she was able to lift and throw humans with ease) but still has average fighting technique. Her joining the Pro Bending will take care of that in the future.

actually avatars do have long life spans but according to Wikipedia the avatar state puts tremendous strain on the user. ang froze himself in the avatar state for 100 years so that shortened his life span by alot.

I found that wiki posting, but it's speculation as it was not revealed in either series so far.

http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar

Wiki entry regarding the matter of the avatar's lifespan
"Another downside to the Avatar State is the considerable mental strain it can cause to less experienced Avatars. Prior to his tutelage under the Guru Pathik, Aang would often leave the Avatar State feeling horrified at what he'd done under its influence. Further use of the state, at least in extraordinary circumstances, can place such a large physical strain on an Avatar's body that their life-span can be affected; as such, Aang's hundred years in the iceberg contributed greatly to his eventual death at sixty-six years of age (biologically). "

This article does not say that the avatar has an unnaturally long lifespan. Aang's stent in the iceberg is closer to suspended animation than simply counting those years against him. It simply points to that one incident "boy in an iceberg" may have strained his body using the avatar state's powers before he was a fully realized avatar, or knew a second element for that matter. This was probably added later to explain why Aang died at the age of 66 when The Legend of Korra began. Who knows, but what is fact is that it the show itself does not reveal as to why Aang died. Konietzko quote in the wall street journal interview below just throws it out there, I'm not sure he's believes what he was saying.

I found this forum linked below. It even has a poll results as to how Aang died. This forum thread is pure speculation.
