Critic Reviews for The Legend of Korra Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Maybe having a 17-year-old girl run the world isn't as weird an idea as it sounds. In The Legend of Korra, it's sure entertaining watching her learn how.

[Avatar: The Last Airbender was] three seasons of dense mythology, solid comedy and amazing anime-inspired animation, followed up by "The Legend of Korra," a spin-off series which proved even more intriguing and progressive.

I've honestly loved that Korra was willing to go to continually sadder and harder to deal with places all season long.... sometimes, things suck and that's the way life is.

Continuing in the tradition of epic fiction established in Avatar: The Last Airbender, this series boasts a surprising level of substance for an action cartoon.

I'm pretty sure Naga is the most impressive character in this show so far.

I found the season to be a delight to watch. The animation from Studio Mir is crisp, clean, and has a wonderful atmosphere.

The Legend of Korra, another slick-looking, anime-informed concept,... this [series] represents a bit more ambitious storytelling for older kids, and perhaps a few adults with the geek gene.

For both newcomers and fans alike, Season 1 gave us a memorable journey with dramatic highs and plenty of good-natured humor to back it up.

Sep 20, 2018 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

[Non-benders vs. benders] seemed like the most interesting out of all the arcs.

Sep 20, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Its finale, in which Korra walked into the sunset not with any of the male characters she'd known throughout the show, but with her female friend Asami, was nothing short of groundbreaking for a franchise aimed, nominally at least, at kids.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Korra: Season 1


Super Reviewer

Beautifully animated and surprisingly gritty, The Legend of Korra starts off with a bang - and setting the bar high up for animation with a dark storyline, great additions to the mythos and memorable characters.
