>When Samurai Jack handled the themes and idea of balance in under a minute better than Korra ever did in four seasons.

>An old Russian Soviet did more for animation than two douchebag hipsters that pandered to Tumblr with pic related garbage.

Why did it take so long for something like Samurai Jack season 5 to be made? Why couldn't an Avatar follow up have been like it? It respects the source material, it's smart, it's written brilliantly yet the best they could do was Korra.

Aaron Ehasz

EP and Writer. Bryan and Mike had good ideas but if you look though anything describing the making of show, like art books or people's accounts of their time working in the studio, what you conclude is that those two art school guys needed Aaron and other writers to A. Structure their ideas and B. Stop them from doing bad ideas.

Case in point, read the art book for the original series (it's very nice, good coffee table book), and you see that originally Toph was gonna be a Bolin type character to have a love triangle with Aang and Katara.

Aaron (or one of the writers Aaron chose) said fuck that, that's terrible, let's go with a blind girl who uses the earth's vibrations to see, that's much better.

tl;dr Bryan/Mike needed an experienced EP and writing staff to plan out their ideas and also they needed someone to not be a yes man, someone to call them on their shitty ideas.

Look at book 1 of Korra and you see what happens when Mike and Bryan write the entire thing themselves and have no checking up on whether anything makes sense.

This feels like a lesson in attributing success to the wrong people… Kind of like Tim Schafer, who by all accounts is a fucking nightmare to work with, but because he attached his name, front and center, on everything he could, he retroactively became a superstar in the games because some idiots kept claiming he was responsible for everything in any game he ever worked on… And not too long ago, they shitcanned the majority of their employees and everything they've released since has been awful, despite have Tim "Mr Shitface" Schafer there to bless them with his godly dev skills.

Also, as someone who looked over the choreographers, writers, animators and Mike/Bryan's art, I have to say that if you needed a one sentence explanation of why Avatar: The Last Airbender was so good, it would be all those things dovetailing.

>It came out at a time when Harry Potter was popular and Nickelodeon wanted adventure stories

>Mike and Bryan had the art and ideas

>They got paired up with Nick's best writing and producing team

>they got all their three seasons greenlit in advance and knew exactly how many episodes they were gonna make from the get-go. This is not common now where a creator knows they'll get 61 episodes and 4 years of funding. Studios are more risk averse typically and don't like making those promises.

>Bryan/Mike found the right choreographer who was able to find different styles of Chinese martial arts that could be used to represent different styles of bending.

>They got great voice actors and musicians to do the score.

It was a excellent program because everything that needed to happen happened. Part of that is a studio willing to take a risk, part of it is luck. It was the dovetailing of many things.

And I'm not saying the series is perfect, everyone has a least favorite episode and a flaw they can find. But I think you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who wouldn't say it really was something special that was exciting and just all around well done.

>>845442

There's a tragedy in that Avatar's legacy lead to Korra. I think the comparison between it and Samurai Jack feels right. Samurai Jack was popular but when Avatar came out a year later, I think it took the spotlight from it. So now when Korra is nothing but pandering and whoring itself to be relevant, Samurai Jack comes back and is the follow up we hoped it'd be. And it did without having to pander, or try to be relevant, it's just well written, acted, and respectful of its source material.

She's a highly trained assassin who spent her entire life to that point training to kill Jack, who is of course highly skilled and versatile.

Ashi is probably the only real problem with Samurai Jack at the moment.

She's just awful. She looks awful, she sounds awful (Tara Strong is really phoning it in) and she is essentially the Miss Martian of the season, meaning she can do whatever needs to be done at the exact moment it needs doing but then can't do the same thing a few minutes later for no reason.


 No.845468

>>845464

Yeah, this is true.


 No.845489

>>845448

>ot The Scotsman dying while all his daughters survive.

Doing something about the Scotsman was somewhat necessary considering it's been 50 years. The fact he's a sword ghost now is good enough for me. Who knows, maybe we'll get a scene where Jack has to wield the Scotsman's sword and the whole time he'll get his fighting style shit-talked like the old days.


 No.845493

That'd require episodes 9 and/or 10 to be double length to process all that shittalking.


 No.845528

So what's more likely to happen?

>Jack dies and Ashi takes up his robe and sword to continue the legend

>Jack lives and goes back to the past with Ashi (somehow), marrying her and ruling with her

>Jack lives, says goodbye to Ashi (since changing the past means she'll be gone), and goes back to the past?

I'm leaning towards 1 because I got a bad feeling.


 No.845533

>>845528

Anything but 3 is terrible.

Jack isn't supposed to have a love interest, he's not supposed to be an emotional wreck or a sappy lover-boy. He's meant to be a Samurai with unshakeable determination to beat the shit out of Aku, and so far he's seeming to be really non-chalant about the whole "this is the entire reason I continue to live" purpose he's supposed to have.


 No.845535

>>845533

3 seems the most unlikely right now, honestly. Ashi either exists to take up Jack's mantle or exists to get fucked by Jack. That's all.


 No.845537

>>845533

>so far he's seeming to be really non-chalant

He's not being non-chalant, the whole reason he's been depressed is BECAUSE his entire reason for existing is to kill Aku, and he was starting to think he'd ruined his chances at doing that.

>He's not being non-chalant, the whole reason he's been depressed is BECAUSE his entire reason for existing is to kill Aku, and he was starting to think he'd ruined his chances at doing that.

He's not in the most recent 2 episodes sure, but during the first 3 episodes while he was fucking around with Ashi he seemed like he couldn't give less of a fuck. There's also the fact that 50 YEEAAAAARS means he's been doing very little for quite some time given that his sword's gone.


 No.845547

>>845541

>50 YEEAAAAARS means he's been doing very little for quite some time

He's supposedly been saving random groups of people like he always did, he just hasn't been able to directly oppose Aku at all. He was still doing that in the first episode before Ashi started stealing focus.

Is this meant to be a list of good episodes, or only a list of episodes necessary to catch up to S5?

If it's only to catch up on S5, you only need to watch:

>S1

1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 11.

4 is referenced in S5E6.

>S2

17, 19 (give motivation for saving the past), 21 (referenced in S5E5), 23, 12 (probably not needed, this hasn't been crucial to plot yet)

>S3

28, 30 (only to see a location, actual plot isnt necessary), 31, 32, 37, 38.

>S4

40 (purely to watch the final fight scene as it's shown in S5E4), 42, 51 (more backstory on Jack, can be skipped), 52 (not referenced yet, but probably will be)

And if that list is meant to be the best episodes, then the correct answer is all of them save for maybe a few of the weaker ones in S2/3.

Yeah. She was a villain. Hence Korra being so antagonistic towards her.

Of course, she had the issue the rest of Korra's Republic City posse did in that she was designed for Book One's setting and conflict but never found a place for herself in later seasons.

Can't give you a source, but I can justify him owning the IP for a few reasons:

-He came to Mike Lazzo to make it, not the other way around.

-AS and CN are separate entities, but both are owned by WB. If CN owned the rights, they wouldn't/couldn't give them to AS randomly, as they both have to make a profit to justify existing to the higher-ups. (I could make a whole essay on the shit this causes)

-Other shows from that era on CN were owned by the creators: EEnE, Courage (That's why they haven't rebooted them to milk cash)

-CN hasn't rebooted this, yet rebooted other shows from the same period, like PPG. Suggests they can't for some reason.

-Genndy went around trying to pitch the standalone film to conclude the story. He can't go around asking for help to make the film if he doesn't own the rights, and CN declined doing the film in house. Why would he ask other studios to help him if the guys owning the IP said no? Suggests he has it.

Bryke would never retcon their waifu out of existence, the changes made in Korra to the cannon and the damage done to the overall universe were entirely intentional on their part.

They George Lucas'd it. They're idea guys, people who can spout out the occasionally interesting idea here or there that can be worked into something good with a talented enough writer behind them. This lead to their success and people began to build them up as the figureheads behind this giant infallible thing, except that they realized that all of the things people liked aren't actually things that they did.

They essentially took credit for other people's work, and this jealousy/guilt drove them to start shoving their own ideas into the narrative and universe unfiltered. The Legend of Korra wasn't really a sequel as much as it was a hard reset of everything within the Avatar universe, where Bryke got to wave their hands and finally make all of the stupid bullshit they wanted to shove into the first show cannon.

>They essentially took credit for other people's work, and this jealousy/guilt drove them to start shoving their own ideas into the narrative and universe unfiltered. The Legend of Korra wasn't really a sequel as much as it was a hard reset of everything within the Avatar universe, where Bryke got to wave their hands and finally make all of the stupid bullshit they wanted to shove into the first show cannon.

So essentially, censorship and restrictions were what kept Avatar from being complete shit and what turned it into the marvel we loved, and Korra was everything that could've gone wrong and then some, except it did? Korra truly was a mistake… Avatar itself was just lie and a mistake… Fuck it hurts.

>Bitching about a meme

Anyway, you're mixing up Asian culture with the culture of regions with Abrahamic religions (Christian Europe, the Middle East, etc…). Asia is actually very sexually free compared to these places, and were much more so before Christianity spread.

Asian cultures brought us shit like the Kamasutra, anon. Many of these cultures have concubines, because

Japan in particular horrified Christian Europe when they finally opened up their doors to the West. Pillow books (pics related) were unseemly, Geisha were thought of as prostitutes (something not too far off- they had sex with their clients on occasion, and in the Edo period, when a Geisha came of age her virginity would be auctioned off to the highest bidder), and night visits (men visiting women's houses under the guise of night and having sex with them if they were interested) were a common practice especially in Western Japan.

PDA was not really accepted, but sexuality itself was. The samurai themselves are not 'heroes,' they were essentially just knights. They were a feudal class that were given license to kill. Because they were a class, they'd need to have a wife to make children with. There's no reason to assume that it was unseemly for a samurai to be anything but celibate– if he was, that would mean his clan would die out. More likely, he had many children and perhaps even bastard children.

Homosexuality was also really common, especially with samurai. Samurai having sex with men was better and more macho than having sex with women, like you see with the vikings and ancient Greeks. They would molest and fuck their apprentices (shudo).

Outside the homosexuality stuff, you may be interested in 'Amorous Women of the Floating World.' It's a manga about sexuality in Edo-period Japan.

Even less than that, as being a knight was less a caste and more a sort of lofty option upper castes had if they followed the proper steps. Samurai were just a servant/warrior caste who, in exchange for absolute loyalty and obedience to their lord, were given the right to do whatever they wanted to lower castes so long as it didn't annoy their lords.

Again, that has nothing to do with whether or not the Dark Ages were real because that shit was true before and after they supposedly happened. The myth of the Dark Ages is about the Church oppressing people and suppressing knowledge and old literature, stuff that was either made up or exaggerated by scholars during the Renaissance who had hateboners for the church.

>Chivarly? Bushido? Nothing, according to you.

You have no fucking idea what Bushido even was do you? It in no way resembles any idea you have of Chivalry, it's just a code about how Samurai are completely subservient to their lords no matter what. It says nothing about chastity or anything related to sex outside of not letting it get in the way of serving your lord, and even if it did it wouldn't be prudish in the slightest because the Japanese have never considered most of the shit we're talking about degenerate to begin with.

As for Chivalry, just because it existed doesn't mean that there weren't tons of corrupt assholes who violated it, there always is and always will be corruption in any caste or field. Plus most of the loftier shit people associate with Chivalry was actually made up by poets.

>All this talk about how Jack was trained specifically in Samurai Bushido

In the first episode he is sent around the world to learn from the various forms of fighting and culture around the world. The Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, he trains under a bunch of people so he must have a bit of everything underneath his belt and while he probably follows the Bushido stuff more closely due to it being his heritage, he still probably learned from several cultures about their own ways of speaking to or interacting with the opposite sex.

I think it's less about how he was trained and more about who he is as a person - All he did for like 50 years was mope and grow a beard. He may have interacted with people BEFORE those 50 years but it's obvious that he didn't really interact with many people. None of his friends seemed to know much about his whereabouts or how long he's been gone, so it's obvious he hasn't even talked to those that he would call his friends for a while. After 50 years, his only comrade is a sexy ninja woman who's flirting with him and she doesn't know anything about love in the first place - Let's be real, they're a couple of autists who are getting together because they don't really know what their feelings are.

You don't prove this with, you prove it with historical accounts and citations. Honestly I should admit on the European side these are limited and it's mostly conjecture that I was agreeing with because I got too into the argument and allowed myself to make a dumb dichotomy, so sorry about that. On the Japanese side however there is a shit ton of proof because it's common knowledge and no one in Japan ever denied that their culture was like that, they were always unashamed degenerates. I've walked into antique stores with Japanese collections and half the time it's almost entirely ivory carvings of men fucking each other in the ass, there's tons of 'classical' art of this as well as stuff like that historical manga that anon posted above.

Same. I love those season 4 episode where they showed the "other side" of Jack's usual fodder. If these guys had just been fodder in another episode with no real backstory, you never would've thought much about them. Imagine what deep stories his other enemies carry. Also, that Winter episode where Jack easily beats that Troll and his ice sword would've also been treated as "oh Jack kills another monster, good", but instead you get to see his backstory and all he went through to forge that ice sword with his people and to test it against the might of Jack to prove his worth.
