Go watch this show.

Nine 24 minute episodes, from the guy who made Airbender and the Director of Uncharted 3.

The animation is a little wonky, but very unique. It took me less than 2 episodes to appreciate it.

I really like The Legend of Korra, but this show is truly, truly the spiritual successor to Airbender.

If the show gets renewed, the animation will be smoother and the seasons will be longer.

I would avoid looking up trailers/reviews before watching, since there are spoilers for the first few episodes in them.

Blooky and I are freaking in love with this series, and if you give it 3 episodes, you probably will too.

Discuss show here, using spoiler tags.

I like bread.

Gonna be entirely honest, I was strongly considering watching this series because it gave me Avatar vibes when I watched the trailer and the reviews are good. I've got pretty high hopes for it and I'll be giving it a shot in the fairly near future.

Obligatory "The Dragon Prince is great and you should all go watch it, then be sad when you binge through it in about four hours."

The animation really irked me for an episode or two, but you'll get used to it. There's some obvious Avatar inspiration, which I can conclude after now having started Avatar because of this show. I know, I'm a bad person for having never seen it. The episodes are short enough that just giving it a shot (with the knowledge that your eyes will adjust to the animation) is really a better use of your time than reading walls of text about why you should watch it, in my opinion.

My weird theory is that the King's soul is currently inside his bird. I wanted Lord Viren to be a complex morally ambiguous character I could still cheer on, but then he ordered his son to kill the Princes.
