DAYUM!!–Avatar Korra Season 4 off to an interesting start

avatar-korra-s4

The Final season of Avatar Korra Sesaon 4 was released online on 10-3-2014. Due to Nickelodeon’s new method of delivery the animation will be an online only viewing. The fans can see all episodes on Nickelodeon.com or their mobile application(app). Viewing the first of the final arc brings excitement to see how the creators will close this chapter. The greatest aspect of this show is the embodiment of strong female lead characters which has been very lacking in animation. Beyond that without giving too much away we are brought back into the world of Korra three years after the incident of season 3 which left Korra yet again almost killed and used as a means to an end. This also destroyed her pride in herself as the Avatar and who she is as a person. Loosing her link to her past lives left her broken and alone with the weight of her past decisions creating the current situation. It’s a tough burden to bear as a young person maturing into a figure of hope. The pacing picks up rather quickly with a possible new threat who upon watching the premiere you will be made aware quite quickly as a strong female nemesis, again another thumbs up as this show has the highest in terms of strong female ladies. What I loved about this animation was the martial arts used in the form of bending it’s simply fluid and seamless.
To conclude this show is off to a great start and I would like to see what else they have up their sleeves. The preview of the season looked to be a heart stopping fiasco. For more on Avatar Korra check out the Nickelodeon page.

DAYUM!!-Sword Arts Online -Totally awesome anime!-on Hulu!!!

sword-art-oniline_001a

Late to the viewing of this anime but recently I watched a series called ‘Sword Arts Online’ which was an anime based on fantasy MMORPGS but on a scale where your mind is brought into the world much in the vain of the Matrix trapping the users in the virtual world where if they died in that world they would also die in the real world. The only way to escape this world was to defeat the game’s end boss.

The characters designs were typical fantasy anime attire no real mystery there. Over the top action with all so amazing 2d animation by really talented artist. Hands downs this is yet another wonderfully animated series worthy of a collection corner.

Much like many anime that seems to have its theme around a particular construct, like gaming, sports etc it totally dominates the arena. There are other anime that SOA shares a likeness but hands down this is laden with emotional impact, which most anime I have watched are capable to deliver with amazing results but lacks.
What I love about this anime is the bond the main characters have for each other, its almost intoxicating. There were moments when characters died and all you can do is feel the loss knowing that even though this was a virtual world these characters actually died in the real world thus pushing the seriousness of the situation they were all in. Another key thing was they captured the whole team spirit of a MMORPG which is key to making a story based around that theme. You form team/guilds and you work together on the front line and when you were not on a quest you worked the town as a sword-smith, inn keeper, merchant etc. There are many events I will leave out to not ruin your viewing of the show so when you have a chance watch it, enjoy it and follow it up with the other series call SOA2 Sword Arts Online II. This will surely be added to my collection.
