Okay. So, wait a minute. Let me be a nerd for a second here.
The first season of The Legend Of Korra was originally scripted and intended to be the entire show. Therefore, the writers intended for the conclusion of Asami’s story arc to be: Her boyfriend leaves her, and then her own father tries to kill her in a heart-wrenching act of betrayal.
I have no problem with tragedy, but here’s the thing: when Korra, in the season finale, loses her bending (And she doesn’t even really lose it—she just becomes an airbender! So, her great tradegy is that he only has one wonderful power that any one of us would kill for?), she cries like a bitch, flees from her friends and sits on a cliff pouting about the unfairness of the world.
Asami, meanwhile, stands strong by her friends even after the two most important men in her life—her father and her boyfriend—have pretty much abandoned her. Not only is she strong enough to still be walking and talking with dignity after her father tried to kill her, but she is still friends with both the guy that dumped her and the girl she got dumped for.
Asami is a way better role model than Korra. Which would be fine, if Korra weren’t the fucking Avatar.
