6 TV Shows You Definitely Need To Watch If You Love "The Legend of Korra"
If you're a fan of "The Legend of Korra," then you definitely need to watch these 6 TV shows!

The Legend of Korra came to an end back in December 2014, but fans of the Nickelodeon series are still pining for more.

One of the most prominent things about The Legend of Korra was its female lead character. Korra was strong, willful, complicated, and savvy. She was the kind of character that many avid viewers often hoped for. Instead of relying on a stronger male to take charge, Korra was the first one to rush into a fight, usually without thinking, and could often hold her own against even the most menacing of threats.

While we can’t get Korra back, we can look to other shows that deliver similar characters combined with creative fantasy and supernatural storylines. Here are 6 shows you need to watch if you love The Legend of Korra:

    What a stupid article. Just because theyre animated females doesn’t mean that they’re like korra… Sailor Moon. Really? And ring in the list by including the first series. Pointless and shows that you’ve never watch the damned show.

      First of all, “Hi, Troll!” Secondly, I never claimed that “just because theyre animated females” means that they’re EXACTLY like Korra. The point I made, if you’d read the article, was that that they are all included because they are STRONG characters who are to be admired for their complexities. Finally, I mentioned, quite clearly, that I recognize most people have likely seen Avatar: The Last Airbender, but that I’d include it just in case. I have seen each of these shows and love them all. I wouldn’t include them if I hadn’t watched them. But, thanks for your input and I hope you enjoy your mother’s basement.

    I only recently discovered RWBY, and watched it all in about 2 days! It’s such a great show that I highly recommend. Not a lot of people know about W.I.T.C.H, at least from my experience, but I’m glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
