“You have indeed felt a great loss, but love is a form of energy, and it swirls around us.  The Air Nomads’ Aang’s love for you has not left this world.  It is still inside of your heart, and is reborn in the form of new love.”

The announcement of the upcoming graphic novel brought up all sorts of old feels, so in commemoration of the continuing story, I decided to break my own heart.  Enjoy.

Avatar Remastering Project

Hey guys! Exciting news–the fan-run Avatar Remastering Project is getting closer to completion everyday! This project is upscaling and remastering every single episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender in beautiful HD (1080p vs the original 480p, or 1440x1080 vs 720x480). 

This means, for the first time ever, you’ll be able to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender in HD! 

Additionally, the interlacing and haloing (glowy white borders around black outlines) have been removed.

The latest update was November 27, 2016 (2 days ago):

We’ve finished upscaling all 61 episodes. This unarguably took the most amount of time (400+ hours) Right now we have to look for visual errors in every episode and correct those scenes. Not sure how long that’s gonna take. After we’re done fixing everything, we’re ready to start uploading.

I’m not affiliated with this project, but I am super excited to be able to watch and edit Avatar in HD for the first time ever! The dedication of the Avatar fandom never ceases to amaze me, and the fact that a fanmade project like this is in the works more than 10 years after the show’s premiere is a real testament to the quality of ATLA. 

For more information, check out these posts from the people who are running the project: 

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: Iroh, though. He could’ve stayed in the Fire Nation and lived a cushy life. He could’ve had whatever he wanted - a comfortable home, a slew of servants, a tea shop - any retiree’s dream following a long, highly successful career in a war. He could’ve been mostly happy and mostly content, free to do whatever he pleased really as the Fire Lord’s brother and a former general. He didn’t have to do any of the things he did for Zuko. He really didn’t. Zuko wasn’t even his kid! But guess what? Iroh loved Zuko like his own son. And Iroh left everything he knew to follow this asshole of a kid around the world on a pointless mission all the while loving him like Zuko had never been loved before and I just... Iroh, though. Uncle Iroh.
