I think they're trying to bring the old avatar feel back even with the characters gone :3;; 'cause bolin really reminds me of a bending sokka and mako is a lot like zuko lol. I love korra too, though I really need a bit more time to get used to her voice... >:
and fffs break is my favorite! ;_; I'd change my UN to something PH-related in a heartbeat if i could, waa. but yeah, the mangaka never fails to surprise me. there's always something new happening now that i never would have expected. ;o;
I'm flipping out over the new series, and so far I'm enjoying just as much as the first, though I really miss the old characters. ;w; However, Korra is an amazing character, she's almost like a fusion of Katara and Sokka, and I find that amusing. xD
& I looove Pandora Hearts, one of my older usernames here was Break. \o/ I wish that series had a bigger fanbase, but then again it's huge on certain social network sites. That series blows my mind in every chapter, especially within the last year or so.
