The Legend of Korra: Book Four - Balance Reviews

October 31, 2018
The martial-arts action segments are unparalleled (like an animated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), but Korra's status as one of the great feminist cartoon heroines secures her place on this list.

[Kuvira] is a fearsome beauty, possessing a strength and determination that could rival Amon, or even Zaheer. While her motivations for this new world order are still unclear, she should be an interesting addition to this season

I loved this show by the end, and I can't tell you how happy it made me to see such a strong lineup of female characters, led by the strongest who was a woman of color.

Korra's growth from brash and impatient teenager to capable leader and mature woman is incredibly satisfying; Korra managed to be one of the best series about a female superhero since Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I appreciate Book 4 [for] putting one of its central conflicts front and center from the start, and delineating the two sides very clearly.

While some characters were underutilized and several episodes dragged, the overarching story was solid, specifically in terms of theme and allegory.

[Book Four] eases us back to life with old friends. Knowing that the core characters' emotional lives continued forward is the real joy.
