Next post: Friday, 6/6: The Siege of the North, Part II

Another GIRL POWER!! episode, haha. And ohhh boy, it's time for the first real Zuko and Katara fight!


Appropriate icon is appropriate

I love love love both these episodes. <3 So awesome.

Katara's fight scene with Pakku is amazing. It's so great to see the extent of her skills, and I have to keep reminding myself that she taught herself everything. It's crazy.

And The Zutara fight scene is even awesomer. Finally, Zuko realizes she's more than the Avatar's waterbending companion who he can tie to a tree and have sexytiems with, and Katara once again proves she can fight.

"You rise with the moon. I rise with the sun."

AAAH~! *dies*

Also, Tui and La totally ship Zutara. :3
"Climb on, everyone, Sokka's ready for take-off." [chokes]

A gender equality message in our cartoons? I'm so proud!

Yue has bunny-ear hair. Cute! And also appropriate.

The one thing that upset me about these episodes was the solely negative characterization of arranged marriages. They're portrayed as really backwards and repressing in all scenarios (Yue's and Pakku's) and i can't help but be a little peeved at that. I see the message, and it works out plotwise, but i can't help but wonder if they could have been a little less forceful and one-sided about it.

Fight of Win! [sigh]
