A couple of weeks ago, I borrowed Bisdak’s dvd copy of Avatar: The Last Airbender to relieve myself of chronic weekend ennui. Verdict: I love it! This Nickelodeon animated series is so interesting that I did nothing but watched Books 1 to 3 non-stop for two days.
Being an anime fan, I was a bit surprised that a non-asian production could actually churn a wonderful pan-asian series like that. Of course there were ‘duh’ moments (some american teenager stuff that seem odd in an asian-inspired world of martial arts and elemental magic) especially in the latter episodes, but who cares? I highly recommend this series to all my buddies who love animes as well as anime-inspired films.
