I'm a little skeptical as his focus seemed to be only on the "asian-ness" of the series (and I'm sure that everyone here could agree with me that Avatar: The Last Airbender was a lot more than just 'reflective of Asian culture'), as well as his art-style. But if he tries his best to remain true to the animated series, the story will be pretty good, I presume.
Archsage wrote:That's all fine and good, but again, (and likely because he is Asian himself), I'm weary of his explicit focus on the subject. I'm sure it was more than a "bonus" to the shows points. Notice how his comments all revolved around that specific context -- even his, albiet comical, analysis of the show's overarching plot-line revolved around the "Asian-ness" of the series. Even more, his reason for not wanting to watch the Movie was centralized on "Asian-ness" more so than anything else (as was exemplified in this comic of his). I would argue that if Avatar: The Last Airbender was not set in an "Asian Fantasy World", he would not be anywhere near as interested in this series as he is now.
