In my opinion, I thought Korra was an incredibly unlikable chatacter. Her uncompromising attitude towards conflict, her entitlement towards being the avatar, and how shitty she was to tenzin left a bad taste in my mouth.She had nothing to work towards,either?Its rly absurd that a 4 year old would already be the master of 3 elements when it took aang a long time,and even then he still stuggled.The romance was handled in a superficial & junenile way, and imo nothing would be lost if it was cut out
I saw a post a while ago which explained in a really good way why a lot of people found Korra harder to like from the off. With Aang, as an Air Nomad, he’s been brought up in a pacifist world and taught a pacifist ideology by the monks. Then when the war kicks off hes thrown into a situation where as the Avatar, he has to actively do things that go directly against all of his pacifist upbringing in order to end the war, and he finds that incredibly difficult and, notably, struggles with it from the off. Korra however is a strong, feisty, and somewhat hotheaded girl, and although that made it hard for her to master airbending, she is still able to solve the main issues in the majority of the first few seasons in any way she normally would; by running in guns blazing. Its not until she has to help to try and rebuild the air nomads that shes actively thrown into a situation where she needs more diplomacy and tact, something she struggles with, that you see that conflicted side of her. And thats why a lot of people find her harder to like almost from the off because its basically a feisty girl being feisty and beating people up whereas with Aang it was a small monk boy finding it hard to accept that he had to beat people up and attack people. Korra was far more suited to the role of the Avatar from the off because she had more of an aggressive instinct and actively wanted to be the avatar. Aang never wanted to be the avatar, and I think that adds a lot of development that, with Korra, isn’t there and I think that threw people off.
