Just want to know your opinions. If you've watched it go tell me! And if not, find it on nick.com...

And for those who are lazy bums that won't go find out when it shows and watch it... here's a link to see a preview online http://www.nick.com/all_nick/tv_supersites..._id=ava&clip=16

Edit: err... they've now added an annoying coco puffs ad in front of the actual preview... just wait through the ad and then the preview will show up.

... I like it too! Usually I think any anime-imitations on nick or cartoon network belong in the grave, but avatar is actually pretty good.

I went around some other anime forums and I saw that most just dismissed this show... I'm so glad you guys gave the show a chance. biggrin.gif

looks interesting. its a better anime-imitation than Teen Titans or Totally Spies, at least. the art sometimes reminds me of the art of Abenobashi... anyway, looks fairly good.

I've never seen Abenobashi (maybe I should...), but I think the artwork has a hint of studio ghibli in it...

Yeah it is anime-imitation. But yeah I have to admit, so far it's good. Well it's better than I expected. Nothing to be obsessed about, but yeah the plot is actually pretty good.

The thing I hated about Teen Titan and Totally Spies is because it's not coherant. It doesn't have a overall plot and the characters are always the same. THere's no character development and the characters dont have a background, childhood or another life besides what is shown on TV. In anime (the good ones) the characters act and think the way they do because something happened in their past or and stuff. You can guess their life story and stuff. The whole series revolves around the character trying to accomplish a goal.

BTW I really HATED totally spies because the girls are such ditzes.... >_<

Old review thingie... read if your interested...

Nick Premiere Show

Check out subsequent pages of this exclusive Animation Insider news feature article for additional reviews of additional episodes of this intriguing new, original animated television series airing on Nick.

Anyone watching Avatar: The Last Airbender will be reminded of the anime-style cartoons seen on the air today on other networks. Some are calling it Nickelodeon’s way of gaining an audience of Japanese Anime fans, and others are calling it a new style that probably wouldn’t hurt to try at least once.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is the story of a young boy named Aang, an Airbender of course, one who can basically use air to do all sorts of interesting movements and tricks. He carries a stick that can turn into a kite – like flying device, allowing him to fly as he manipulates the wind with his powers to airbend.

Twelve year old Aang is found in a glacier in the South Pole by two members of the Water Tribe village known as Katara, whose the only water bender in all of the South Pole, and her brother, Sokka, whose a young warrior in the tribe. Other characters Aang and the rest of the audience gets to meet include Zuko, a fire bender and, in fact, prince of all fire benders. During the time that Katara and Sokka find Aang, Zuko is on a major quest to search for “the Avatar,” whom apparently is Aang, the one whom supposedly has mastered all earth elements, from fire to earth to water to air. Simply, an Avatar is someone who can control or shape these earthly elements. Other characters include Aang’s flying bison, Appa, whom seems to be quite the interesting creature to travel on.

The conflict is protection. The water tribe for some time has been under attack by the fire benders. No one has been around for about a century to keep all of the land in balance between the elements of earth, fire, wind, and water. Aang just may be the one to help bring balance back to all the land; could he be the Avatar is the question. Many would sound out yes immediately, but perhaps the many other upcoming episodes will allow the public to answer the unanswered questions. As we look further into the premiere episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it turns out that Aang only knows how to airbend. A little over a century, the fire group apparently worked towards taking over most of the globe, and at that the same time many wondered if after all this time, the last Avatar died after such a long period of being missing in action. If Aang is the Avatar, he is much younger than a century or so old. After being stuck in the glacier so long, assuming that things were still peaceful, Aang had no idea of the conflict that was taking place. The end result is that it could very well be up to a twelve year old airbender to learn all the tricks of the trade and help restore peace across the lands, with some kind of help from Katara and Sokka, and if were all lucky, a few others along the trail.

The characters are quite interesting. Aang seems to be the lighthearted kid that you can easily familiarize yourself with. He seems to bring comfort in the most dangerous or hostile situations. Aang is practically unafraid. Katara seems to be very close to the age of Aang, and most likely will continue to grow closer to a strong relationship of friendship with Aang. Katara doesn’t mind having the ability to water bend, but she wants to learn to improve her skills and believes that Aang would be able to really assist her in some form or fashion. Sokka is kind of a bothersome but meaningful older brother, who has very strong pride in his tribe. Sokka proves to be more than just what the show leads him on to be. He thinks Katara and Aang are both very weird, but most likely as the series goes on, he’ll get use to it all.

from what i've seen so far, it's pretty interesting. for the most part i like the voices and characters (especially sokka tongue.gif), and the logo and commercial with the painted hills and stuff are well done, which get bonus points in my book. i also really liked the element-bending powers, aang's in particular. and dude, appa is awesome. wink.gif
