Guys. I really like Avatar!

The cartoon, I mean. I was going to say The Last Airbender but now that's confusing, too. Anyway. Not exciting and new, I know, old meme, but I thought you should know.

Because everyone's awesome, especially... *drumroll*...

IROH.

That's right. I adore him. I don't know what it is, though I do know that I often really enjoy characters who like food and/or are sort of philosophical about their comforts. Even though I do not. Like food.

I'm not done with Book 3 yet, I think we're on the second disc, but the scene with Zuko and the shell was probably the best thing ever, and I also love Katara and Aang and Sokka and less so Toph. But Iroh. I need more Iroh.

I hear people don't like Katara. What's that about? Unless it's about something that hasn't happened yet, in which case, don't tell me. But anyway, I love that it's a kid's show that moves, plotwise, and it's got definite goals, and the humor is actually humorous to me, and there are lots of girls kicking ass. It's just great.

These are my profound thoughts.

It is the awesomest show! Everyone loves Iroh.

Katara, um. Possibly it is an outgrowth of the weird rivalry between Zuko/Katara shippers and Zuko/Mai shippers? I generally see a lot more hate directed against Mai, actually. I think Katara is awesome and has one of the best character arcs on the show, personally. (I also love Mai. And just about everyone else.)

I don't know, then. The usual female character backlash?

Booter-Freak
on DeviantArt has a lot of amusing Avatar cartoons, including one that takes on Katara-hate (NSFW).

Did you click through to the long comic? The link is in the description, and it is wonderfully supported with screenshots.

Booter has a bunch of other cartoons which are pretty great.
