Yeeeah...I don't think The Legend of Korra is intended for kids at all...the same can be applied to Naruto Shippuden.

I remember, when I was a kid I loved all the superhero shows mainly because of cool superpowers. 
But also because the storylines were better than a lot of other shows. I loved the darkness, the seriousness, the love and all the feelings. It seemed real! Like TLOK and ATLA does.
I think we give kids too little credit sometimes (:

Personally I think this is a good thing for children. A talking yellow sponge who flips burgers all day and blows bubbles with his best buddy isn't real life. The Legend of Korra is one of the most real show's I've ever watched. The last scene made me extremely happy because OMG NICKELODEON ACTUALLY ACCEPTED BESTBIANS OMG THIS IS AWESOME.

I'd really like more homosexual action in shows.

LETS BE MORE LIKE JAPAN, AMERICA. I KNOW YOU CENSORED SAILOR URANUS AND NEPTUNE'S RELATIONSHIP.

I'd argue that it isn't really meant for "little" little kids. Because I'm pretty sure the 10-15 year olds who watch this show, apart from the college kids who also watch this show, are old enough to handle the tough situations and gripping drama. It's probably the best made animated series designed for a pre-teen audience, beyond Gravity Falls and Steven Universe. Except this feels like as strong as a live-action drama.

I know this is still meant to be a joke. But I think we give "kids" far less credit than they deserve. This is the kind of show that helps kids to mature into adults.

I don't know, you seem to be "bending" the logic there, it seems a little "hot" to talk about. But then again you didn't "water" it down, you kept it down to "earth" for us to understand. Be sure to tell yourself " 'Amon' a roll with this humor," Cause you are. I was glad to see this series when it was on the "air" thats for sure!  

Nice IROH pun btw.

the last air bender was made for kids and supported them all the way up to their tweens to mid teens and Korra didn't come in till those tween/teens were (hate this "made for Helo-Parents" word) young adults to late teens.


Korra is for the fans that went to see the Last airbender at theaters and didn't get their money back

Yeah.. children cartoons made for children get an adult crowd.. and mature movies like Jurassic Park & Marvel & DC superheroes get dumbed down for children... (JP4 is going to be dumber than JP3, that's guaranteed).
I don't think they would've been taken seriously by their shareholders had they asked to make the series for a more mature audience, whether it be teenagers or young-adults/adults, etc.
Why? Because people who own stocks in those kind of industries, are not consumers, they don't want to take risks, that's why they hate anything progressive or new.
Plus, they have to catter to a stupid audience who will spend too much money on products such as toys, clothes, etc.
Take Blizzard & World of Warcraft.. they just had to make an expansion pack about pandas.. but for who? Hardcore gamers? no Mature players? no Children? DING DING DING ,yes indeed.
That's how the world works.
If it had been made for an adult audience, they wouldn't have been able to get the funding they got, and it would've ended up as a cheap animation, like your usual anime manga with 10 framers per minute.
At least we got descent animation, a storyline that didn't suck most of the time, except for its few needless querks to make children laugh.
We live in a world of nascar uneducated bastards who can't understand or follow any story that's remotely complex. And they're the ones who are targeted by Marketing Focus Groups, not us.

How was I even supposed to read all this???
And I only said it would have been better is because I think that with these characters and settings they had the story just didn't fit in...
And if they wanted to make it different they would have got the funding from somewhere else... Or not...

Skullfaceguy said: ''It would have been so much better if they didn't try to make it for kids...''


Here's what I meant to say:

- Agree, it would be better if they didn't try to make it for kids.

- It is ironic, that shows like The Last Airbender & Legend of Korra seem to attract a mature crowd, and tv/movie content meant for adults, seem to catter to & attract a younger crowd.

(for example: movies like Jurassic Park III, Jurassic Park IV (although JP4 is not out yet, I do not have high hopes for it, JP1 & 2 was good, but the third was complete shit),
Marvel & DC superhero movies: Superman, Superman vs Batman, Ghostrider, Ironman II & III, Avengers, Thor, Captain America, S.H.I.E.L.D., The Flash [...], etc )

If they had asked the studio to make Legend of Korra with a mature crowd in mind, I don't think the shareholders (at Nickelodeon) would take it seriously, and then, they wouldn't be very enclined to fund it as project meant to bring in revenue for the company.

^ why do I say this?   - Because people who own stocks in those kind of industries (entertainment) are not consumers, they do not want to take risks (alienating children from the viewer-base, because if

the show dealt with complex matters 1) the children might feel lost >>   2) their parents might not allow them to watch it  ||||

The shareholders do not like to take the risk of investing in something progressive or new, because re-doing what's already been done, in a slightly different manner, is seen as better, because then, they feel they have more control, that they can predict what their consumers will do > which is part of marketing > which is part of how they run the business: (Nickelodeon & affiliated studios).

And what is worse, is that they tend to catter to a stupid audience, children who are not smart, who will bother their parents to buy all the shit from the television show: A.k.a. ; toys, shirts, books, comics

Here's another example of how entertainment industries makes decisions which are at odd with their consumer base, even in content that is supposedly mature:

- Take Blizzard Entertainment and their game, World of Warcraft (Rated Teen: 12+ ), which has, or had a player base which consisted of a majority of adults (18+)

They made a cheap expansion, called Pandaria, that had a dumb storyline that involved Pandas, and seemed to be inspired by a very simplistic/borderline-racist view of Chinese culture.
^
Who did they catter to with this expansion? A) was it the Hardcore players?
                                                                      B) was it for the Mature players?
                                                             or     C) for Children                                            <<<<  DING  DING DING, the answer is C)

yes indeed, and that's part of how the world works.

Marketing interests > Consumers interests



if Legend of Korra had been intended for a mature audience, they would've received less money for their budget, and it would've ended up as a cheap animation, like your usual anime manga with 10 framers per minute.

Why couldn't they simply ask for funding elsewhere? Simply because it's a product, with copyrights, which are owned by Nickelodeon. Shareholders from Nicke do not venture in the world of adults, as for them, animation/cartoons & adult-interests is bad investment, they do not believe/feel that it would gather a large enough crowd,
and for them, that would be the equivalent of throwing money out the window.

Conclusion:
At least we got descent animation out of Legend of Korra, a storyline that didn't suck most of the time, except for its few needless quirks to make children laugh.
We live in a world of nascar uneducated bastards who can't understand or follow any story that's remotely complex. And they're the ones who are targeted by Marketing Focus Groups, not us.




NOW, is that a bit easier to read? Or does it take too much time to read?  Is it completely irrelevant to what you said because I made a reply that consisted of 626 words (2940 characters) ?

I was a little disappointed that Amon turned out to be a water-bender instead of being a kickass non-bender like he said he was, and I thought Korra being able to suddenly give everyone their bending powers back was a little contrived, but despite that, Korra season one was fantastic.

And yet, cartoons like this are typecasted as kids shows simply because it's animated, while crap like Grown Ups 2 and Bay's Transformers franchise is considered awesome and edgy, when in reality, they're shallow attempts at story, character, and overall quality. And yet, the latter are more favored by society while you're made fun of for watching this. I feel ashamed to live in this society.

I freaking WEPT at that last bit with them. I was just bawling. That first season was definitely way beyond the "eleven year old" range, but then again, the original series was intended for "6 to 12"... O.O

Oh, but there are so many others things in LoK that are totally not for mature audiences only! Things like : Biochemical torture, murder-suicide, nazism, what-is-basically-mind-rape, and my personal favorite: Death-by-head-explosion!

But remember, two girls kissing would be just too traumatizing to actually show.

I'm pretty sure TLoK is aimed at a slightly older audience (which is why most of the main characters are around 17~19 years old, whereas in TLoA the characters were around 12~14). Which is also why they decided to use more drama and also to approach some serious issues in the show, such as PTSD and such.
