Ok, people. I know I said I wasn't gonna do this kind of posts, but I needed to take this out of my head.
So, today we watched Legend of Korra Book 4 Episode 8 called 'Remembrance'. We all know each cartoon has an episode full of flashbacks when the series comes near the end and this was ours.
Sorry to Makorrians, but this cartoon was supposed to be KORRAS JOURNEY to become the best Avatar she could be... but half episode was about Mako's failed personal relationships.
I've said a lot of times that I don't hate him, but he needed more character development... I wasn't liking him as much as I wanted. And this episode just came to rub in my face all the things he did that annoyed me.
First he says: "All that changed when I met Korra" but the scene is him passing by her side witthout even looking at her. Wu says that was rude and Mako answers "You know what's rude... interrupting". That's rude, Mako.
Then his telling Wu when he met Asami, Wu is like "You should work on your introductions." and Mako is like "When you have charm like mine, you don't need introductions." What the ACTUAL fuck!
At some point we hear him say: "Hangin out with Asami made things with Korra complicated." What's that suppose to mean? They go out, they kiss... but for Mako that's not dating... or maybe it was... he doesn't know... interesting... maybe they deleted the scene when Mako says Asami 'Whe should be friends with benefits'... although I'm sure Asami wouldn't agree to that.
Oh, and the next scene when Asami confronts Mako about his feelings for Korra, and he's like "Turns out she was right." ... surprise, suprise. Guess what, Mako? Apparently you're always wrong.
At this point I love Mako's cousin... his telling what most of us where thinking back in the days.
Last part was decent.. he says: "I helped Korra defeat Zaheer, and we did it as friends. She showed me the importance of putting other before myself." and "She continues to inspire me." Positive words... but I still have my doubts about he learning to put others before himself... well, he's protecting Wu, so, that's a step.
Now we are 10 minutes into the episode, practically half of it, talking about about the love triangle. I believe that ironically reflects the truth about the series... half of it was the love triangle and that was the worst part of it.
Then we have Korra remembering her fights, thinking that the world doesn't need her, and then comes Asami telling her all the good things she have done and Tenzin talking about how there'll always be an enemy but that she have to learn from them, and that she has grown up so much as a person and as the Avatar.
(Korrasami shipper personal commentary: Did you noticed how Korra says to Asami "You're so sweet." and not "That's sweet." or "How sweet of you.")
Time count: 4 minutes! Are you kidding me! Mako took more than double time just to talk about how he messed up his romantic relationships with Korra and Asami? Preposterous!
Then we have Varrick re-writing Bolin's story... funny stuff... that Giant Spirit Bolin cracked me up!
So, Bryke has, I think, 4 or 5 episodes to make me change my mind about Mako being just a fool with a pretty face... Oh, and remember when he said he knew how to fly an aircraft because he had dated Asami? How idiotic!
