Everytime I see a post bemoaning the fact that Bryke totally missed a chance to really explore Korra’s PTSD in Book 4, I keep thinking that the entire LoK fandom needs to watch Oban Star Racers, which not only has several characters dealing with PTSD in their own personal ways that doesn’t end abruptly but also has the following:
Kickass main female protagonist
Gay mechanics and lesibian vampire bikers
Awesome art (just really really awesome art)
Creepy looking creatures and awesome character designs
A multicultual cast of human characters
Also, it’s only 26 episodes long and the creators has expressed desire to return to this universe so please watch Oban Star Racers, members of the LoK fandom, you will not be disapointed.
Can we appreciate that Prince Aikka didn’t go “you’re a girl” when it came to Molly being the racer for the Earth Team? Can we appreciate that this guy, who comes from royalty and from what everyone speculates as a traditional, medieval world is so accepting of a female character who is his equal in every way than the guys who come from a world that’s apprently more progressive (Earth Team*coughcough*)? Can we generally appreciate that Aikka doesn’t make a big deal out of Molly being a girl? Or trying to act differently around her or akwardly as he would’ve had Savin gone with the “he doesn’t get girls” kind of behavior? Can we appreciate that Aikka doesn’t treat her like a “girl” or a “guy”, but as a friggin’ person?
Can we just appreciate how badass Aikka is please?
I thought he would ram into Ondai or pull out his bow from somewhere. But no, this motherfucker pulls out a short sword and jumps the big gap onto Mr. Roboto and cuts some important stuff SWORDCUTSMETALROBOTWOWEE and kaboom Ondai down.
