    I'm reading the description and I see

    Mako is named after the Mako
    That's an awesome homage. For those of you who don't know, THE Mako was the original voice actor of Uncle Iroh. He was also the voice actor of Aku in Samurai Jack.

    The animation looks fucking awesome. Avatar was a surprisingly deep cartoon, hopefully this will be as good.

    I wish these guys could get off Nickelodeon so they could actually show blood from time to time and have characters die

    In addition to Aang, the rest of Team Avatar is dead by the time the series starts, according to Andrea Romano.

    The reason they didn't show it in the original series is because it was too dark for Nickelodeon, and since this is going to still be on the same channel, I doubt it will be shown.

    OH SHIT so excited I didn't know there was a knew trailer but they've all been removed! This is like the only Nick cartoon I've enjoyed since Spongebob and that was like 14 years ago.

    Oh just noticed the HD link that looks great.

    There was a theory that she killed Azulon because he ordered the death of Ozai's firstborn son, aka Zuko, and Ursa, being the loving mother that she was, chose her son over anything.

    or the alternative where she hired an assassin, so they could of just put a scene where she hands money to a guy in a mask, which would have the assassination implied (like Jets death)

    That's a bit of a cop-out to be honest. Loving mother sacrificing it all for her Son seems much more dramatic, and better, to be fair.

    They could've flown to mount doom on eagles the entire time?

    I mean they could've killed the Fire Lord with a little bit of money the entire time?

    I might check this out but I didn't really like the first show. A bit too kiddy, and the animation was a little weird.

    Obvious question, but I missed the last few episodes of the series. I'm guessing Ang defeated the Fire-lord?

    Because it's dumb to have characters fight with swords and spears n shit when nobody ever gets cut or stabbed. Consequently, characters like Sokka are useless because censors wouldn't allow him to do any real fighting.

    I remember that one guy who used hookswords, and like all he did was trip people with them because anything more would exceed Y7

    yeah it would be nice to see some of those weapons used at its full potential, also it wouldve added to character depth. For example, if Jet was able to kill people im sure his fighting style would have had him going for every opportune kill shot/hit. Thus showing his vengeance for what happened to his family.

    Those fights were still wonderfully choreographed and epic though

    The reason there wasn't any closure on Zuko's mom is because the 4th season was supposed to be about Zuko looking for his mother but the show wasn't renewed for a 4th(probably for the best). So we ended up with a "sequel" hook at the end of season 3

    You know, it wouldn't be weird if Zuko was still alive, he was like 17-20, the show takes place 70 years after, and most of the fire lords got to their mid 100's...

    (Consider that Roku became like 150, was born on the same day as Sozin, and Sozin obviously outlived Roku)

    What makes you think Roku was 150? He was like half that I'd say

    Edited:

    Yep googled it and he died exactly at 70. However you do have a point since Sozin died at 102 apparently (google), so that means Zuko could be alive but I think for the new series purposes, he's probably dead.
