*stares at the actor pics for live-action Avatar*

Gah, Katara and Sokka look so... White. :/ I'm beginning to see what all the fuss was about when casting for the movie; being of Asian descent myself (my parents are Filipino), I'm somewhat disappointed.

Seriously, you couldn't find a couple of actors who looked more like the characters, to play the roles? (I know appearances shouldn't matter, but...) At least Aang and Zuko look more like their parts, I guess (although having a darker-skinned actor as one of the "villains" annoys me, for some reason).

EDIT: I feel I have explain why this ticks me off so much... You rarely get to see any dark-skinned heroines on TV, and since I have fairly brown skin, Katara is a character someone of my colouration could concievably cosplay (or Ember Island Katara, considering my current weight ;P).

Because of this, I also get annoyed at villains being dark-haired all the time; I really want to write a blonde villainess (not white-blonde, just blonde) one of these days...

OMG, I can't believe Avatar is over... Despite the somewhat mediocre first half of the season, the series finale definitely made up for it. Easily one of the best Western animated series ever made, in terms of animation, action and creativity.

Spoilers for the Avatar series finale )

So much love for for "Avatar: the Last Airbender" at the moment. ^_^ It's shown on Nick, and is an American-made cartoon with an anime feel to it, down to the oriental setting... But it has an animation style that looks distinctly Western, and beautifully drawn; almost Miazaki-like. Oh, and lot of the humour is very American, as well.

Cut for cartoon description and squeeage ^_^; )
