MD: Toward the end of production on season two of Avatar The Last Airbender, Nickelodeon asked us to create some extra content that could be used online or on DVDs. We immeditately thought of doing shorts in a “super deformed” and chibi style, which is popular among anime fans. The style was simpler, the stories were sillier, and everyone involved had a really great time breaking away from the normal style of the show. Designs by Bryan Konietzko and Seung Hyun Oh. 


“Some friendships are so strong, they can even transcend lifetimes.”

The Avatar and Monk Gyatso

The Avatar and the Fire Prince

The Avatar and Katara

The Avatar and Fire Lord Zuko

Roku’s words keep ringing true and my heart keeps melting. 

The Avatar State is a defense mechanism, designed to empower you with the skills and knowledge of all the past Avatars. The glow is the combination of all your past lives, focusing their energy through your body. In the Avatar State, you are at your most powerful, but you are also at your most vulnerable. If you are killed in the Avatar State, the reincarnation cycle will be broken and the Avatar will cease to exist.

i give up dashboard keeps ruining the quality and idk how to fix that ;-;
