Nick just posted this trailer on their site. Pay attention to the last word Korra speaks at the end.
I know right! I was drinking something and almost spit it out all over my screen! Bryke has said this season will tie up all of the loose ends, answer all of the hanging questions... and be the end of a generation of GOOD American Anime.
I mean, when was the last time you got excited about an American cartoon? When we talk about Korra, we don't relate it to Spongebob or Adventure Time... it's on a whole different level (nothing against those shows). We compare it with things like Fullmetal Alchemist and Cowboy Beebop... because, honestly, that's it's niche. It's amazing a show this good got on American primetime television at all.
Whether you liked the Korra seasons or not, I think we can all agree that it SET the standard for future American Anime; pushed the boundaries for what an American Cartoon can do and be. The animation was clean and beautiful, the music (oh the music) was to die for, the voice acting was amazing, and the stories go beyond anything a season of Spongebob ever attempted to do. It was brilliant. It's still brilliant.
Can you believe it's all coming to an end?
But, it's not over quite yet. Book 4 starts just a week from today on October 3rd. It's coming on the heels of arguably the best season of Korra yet, so this fourth season has a lot to live up to. And then you add up all of AtLA and everything that has come before... it's a daunting task. But, I have faith in Bryke. This is going to be epic!
