Korra's great, but it isn't better than every Japanese animation ever made. Keep your irrational exuberance in check. It's especially ignorant to declare something better than something else when you've only seen all of 2 episodes of it. Not saying it's going to suddenly turn to crap after a few episodes, but you're coming across as a little fanboyish with sudden declarations like this.
See, now this is a good conversation. What Japanese animation do you think is better than LoK (assuming Korra keeps this up -- hard to judge based on only two episodes, you know?). The only area where I can see LoK as lacking is in the evil villian overarching story department, but that's just because this episode wasn't really about that. I already love the fact that Amon isn't some evil Lord, but a social revolution entity (much, much more realistic than melon-Lord... I mean, Fire Lord). Ignoring that, Korra has every Japanese Animation beat in the animation, voice acting (oi), humor, and world.
Oh, and for that silly little 'you only watched 1 anime' nonsense, I guess I should go through the list of all the Anime series that i've watched:
Dragon Ball / Z / GT
Full Metal Alchemist
Gun X Sword
High School of the Dead
Naruto / Shippuden
Bo-bobo bo bo bo-bo (sp?, lol)
Aquarion / Evol
*Spirited Away (I know, not a series)
*Howl's Moving Castle
*Princess Mononoke (sp?)
*[I'm forgetting the last Miyazaki movie I watched, something about some valley?]
That's not the complete list but the stuff I have on the top of my head. But none of those are as good as LoK's first two episodes have been showing. Except for Spirited Away, that's was really, really good to me. Then again, it's not as good as the feeling I got from Iroh's character (the sadness) in TLA, so I wouldn't give Spirited Away too much credit. Hmm. Now I'm thinking of changing my avatar to no-face. Or Ishida from Bleach.
