      Previous Hannah Strom Bitch Media Instead of spending time on character development, Legend of Korra mires its characters in absurd, round-and-round fights over who gets to date one another. Jan 20, 2021 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety 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. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review David Hinckley New York Daily News 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. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Kaci Ferrell Den of Geek 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. Sep 22, 2018 Full Review Emily Ashby Common Sense Media 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. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Rebecca Pahle The Mary Sue I'm pretty sure Naga is the most impressive character in this show so far. Sep 20, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next
