this is literally the greatest subtitling job that has ever been done. someone learned how to speak cat.
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Just saying we need to be aware, especially in Hawaii, since Poke is such a big thing, well consuming fish in general is such a huge part of our culture, can you imagine what were consuming if the radiation is this bad????
That is not the level of radiation in the pacific ocean. That image is about wave currents.
Want this new figure? It costs $365. Pre-order Now!
I have thought about it myself but I don’t think Su will turn out evil, although I agree she shouldn’t have asked Korra to chase Aiwei.
After Su discovered Aiwei betrayed her she was devastated, and probably didn’t use common sense but was rather acting impulsively. Throughout the fighting scene with the Red Lotus, you could see Su was determined to save Korra and not to let the criminals escape. She really did care about Korra, as well as she knew the Avatar must be protected.
As for Aiwei, he probably knew Su would do everything to capture him, hence the 10th episode is called “The Stakeout” (the Red Lotus ambushing the Krew in the Misty Palms Oasis[?]).
I agree, but I’m sure Suyin Bei Fong is hiding something.
I’m still quite disturbed as how Aye Aye simply possesed the guy, and casually said he considered killing him. That, and he left him disfigured for all his life.
The backstory of Omashu was certainly the best part of the Cave of the Two Lovers. I loved the painting style they used, and the use of widescreen. It felt like falling into the legend of a legend. Who would have thought that Omashu had such an interesting backstory. It it’s true, than Omashu is thousands of years old.
The Octopus Form is so cool looking, and actually looks very useful for combat… how is it possible that it has been almost a decade since this form was introduced and we have only seen it used twice?! Once in this episode, and a second time, where it’s pretty much a cameo. I want to see it in Korra… they HAVE to put it in Korra!
"The Avatar State" was an excellent way to begin the second season. After the amazing finale, this episode did an amazing job introducing a new villain and making us look foward to the rest of the season. A lot of little details that would come much later are introduced here, and it feels very good to remember in retrospect. I particularly thoight that tackling the subject of the Avatar State was a fantastic way to begin the season. We had seen it in the past, but we didn’t know exactly what it was. The episode finally begins to give us a glimpse of what the Avatar is capable of, and the dangers of the power it bears.
Oh my, what an introduction! Azula’s introduction as a new villain has to be one of the best I’ve seen. She doesn’t do anything truly horrendous on screen, instead is the way she expresses and talks that leaves the first impression. It’s all pshycological: you only have to see her on screen and listen to her leitmotif to just get the vibe that something very dangerous awaits… everyone that crosses her way. As one reviewer once put it: “unlike Zhao who was seeking power, Azula already has power, and what she seeks is perfection”.
Fun story: I wasn’t able to watch the Siege of the North Part 2 until some time after it aired. I had only watched the first part, so I had no idea how the finale ended. The second season began to air by that time, and one of the trailers showed only the Gaang and Azula, so I thought for a moment that Zuko perhaps was transformed into a girl somehow. Oh my, imagination.
