The only thing about The Legend of Korra that I am unsatisfied with was that there wasn’t enough time for the creators to give us as much detail as Avatar The Last Airbender.
I would have loved to see Korra be as cutesey and lovey dovey over Asami, as she was with Mako. I would have loved to see her talk about how she was developing feelings for a girl, and when she realized she was bisexual, or pan, or wherever she aligned.
I would have loved to see Asami realize where she fell as well.
I would have loved to see some more background on the Red Lotus.
I would have loved to see Kuvira’s complete backstory.
I wanted to see Opal, Kai, and the other Airbenders train. I wanted to see their growth as characters over the past three years.
All I wish is that the creators had the time to give us those small details, instead of a smack down, right here, this is what is going on. If we had gotten 20 episodes a season instead of twelve, we could have had SO MANY ADORABLE FANSERVICE EPISODES.
Maybe we could have seen Korra talking to Katara or Kaya about how she didn’t feel romatic feelings toward Mako, but did with Asami.
I just wanted to see the development and growth. Yes. Korra and Asami blushed at each other ONCE in this season and then ran off into the sunset(Spirit world), holding hands and gazing into each others eyes. What I wanted to see was Asami doing Korra’s hair and something happened and they almost kiss, and then are interrupted by a bystander. I WANTED TO FEEL THE SEXUAL TENSION.
Did I want Makorra to be endgame? Well, yeah. I like Mako and I like Korra, and I liked them together. They were endgame. Then Nickelodeon contracted a second season. That ship docked and was torn apart for scrap at the end of season two.
Season 3 was a big season about growth. So was season 4.
I just wanted time with these characters; time that Nickelodeon didn’t give us the time to be with, to fully understand.
Though the ending was beautiful and pretty tied up, I just feel like some of the pieces of the puzzle are missing. Hopefully there will be bits and pieces in the comics.
Congrats Korrasami shippers, your ship was endgame.
And to my fellow Makorra shippers, SHOW SOME DAMN RESPECT. THEY PUT UP WITH US UNTIL THE END.
Balance my beautiful fandom friends. We saw both ships sail, no matter the amount of time they sailed, or are still sailing. We need to find that common Korranation ground with each other and try not to insult one another in the process. We all love Korra, so lets act like it.
