A Must See Avatar Sequel: The Legend of Korra and The Promise Comic Book Trilogy

The Legend of Korra

Everyone would agree that Avatar: The Last Airbender is the only Non-Japanese animated series that we could consider as "anime." Maybe because it tackles martial arts and Kung Fu that only stream from Asian way of thinking. No matter the reason behind this exception I can say that the series is a great hit among viewers that when it ended on the third book we couldn't get enough of it and wanted to have some more. So thanks to the creators of this series they are giving us a new perspective of the Avatar world through its futuristic sequel: The Legend of Korra.

In order for us to have a glimpse of its story, here is the synopsis of The Legend of Korra from Nickelodeon:
Republic City is everything that Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko fought for when they ended the Hundred Year War. With balance restored to the four nations, benders and non-benders can live together in peace, in this thriving metropolitan area. But even the steampunk paradise of Republic City has its problems, as the next Avatar discovers. When Avatar Korra arrives in Republic City to master her airbending, she comes face to face with criminal bending gangs as well as members of a vocal anti-bending revolution. Before long, Korra's Avatar skills are put to the test when she encounters a group of Chi-blockers led by the charismatic and mysterious Amon, who threatens the city and all the benders in it. Despite the immense danger, Korra vows to fight the growing anti-bending revolution. But will she be able to stop Amon before he rises to power and makes his vision of a bending-free world a reality?
