Hooked on "AVATAR: The Last Airbender"

...the anime version, that is, and not the film.

After the watching the film "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and feeling the anxiety to know what happened during the characters' journey to saving the world, we decided to get a copy of the anime version.  We initially started Book 2 and realized that the film left out a lot of pieces in the story that made sense.  So we got Book 1 and started all over again.  And I swear, it was amazingly addicting.  The anime version is so much better than the film (which really sucked pala).  In just two weeks, we finished Books 1-3 and we're watching it all over again.  Yes, it's THAT good. 

In the anime version of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", you will get to know each of the character better:

Aang - the only Airbender and Avatar tasked to save the world.
Katara - the only Waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe who believed that the Avatar can put the war to an end.  
Sokka - he doesn't have bending abilities but he turned out to be a great warrior and leader of Team Avatar.
Toph - a blind Earthbender who became Aang's earthbending teacher.
Zuko - banished prince of the Fire Nation.  He started out as someone who wanted to capture the Avatar but in the end his destiny was to be Aang's firebending teacher.

If you liked the film version, I highly recommend that you watch the anime version and I'm sure you will love it!

A spin-off from this series is coming out this year, "The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra", and we can't wait to see it.
