AVATAR:First of all i think Avatar does not rock becuz it tries to copy Naruto the best anime ever. Like fire nation water nation wind and the rock thing try to copy naruto just like the villages of leaf,sound,mist,sand etc. also avatar is not an anime i dont know why people are saying that. And ang tries to copy how when naruto gets mad he turns to ninetails fox and that girl from the fire nation tries to copy hyuuga neji by disabling the persons chi so they cant do bending. But hyuuga neji disables there chakra so they cant use jutsus (pernounces jitsu) The End.PS: that monster on the episode when ang goes to the spirit world and he meets that one bear yeah....it tried to look like that hallow from Bleach on the beginning of the show.

I hate Kappa Mikey because its so stupid and wanna be so funny but its not....its so dumb and its not even a anime. Anime means Japanese cartoon but kappa mikey is made by some loon and also avatar.and i hate how they make fun of anime becuze kappa mikey is just hating and crap on anime. and they dont even move there mouth right. that cartoon is crap. shuriken school is not cool too and its a wanna be naruto also.of course naruto will kill off shuriken school and they cant even pronounce shurkien right. and the english naruto sucks by the way
Rire Rire Rire Rire Rire and also avatar dont even fight they throw stuff at each other huhahahahaha and its true



Heres a clip of naruto for you noobs link is below

And your point is... (even though I do not watch those, only TRUE Nicktoons. Oh my gosh, I sound like a spammer. Confused )

Well--I've seen some Naruto, and wasn't really all that thrilled with it. I couldn't follow it too much, and it lost my attention span only partially through an episode. Confused

I know that Avatar isn't a true anime; that's fine with. In fact, up until recently, I couldn't even really stand anime all that much. Avatar helped me to find some love for some true anime, and everything transitioned from there.

However, a lot of the CN anime never really caught on with me. InuYasha is probably one of the few that did fascinate me at all. It's all a personal choice I guess though. Some like one thing, while others find it to be ttrash. As they say,
"One man's trash is another man's treasure."

Not everyone is intrigued by Avatar, but not everyone is head over heels in love for Naruto. It's all a matter of opinion.

As for Kappa Mikey..it's okay, but kind of boring. I'm definitely not a diehard fan.

That's a pretty unfair sweeping generalisation.

Avatar draws on some of the oldest oral traditions and philosophies. The story evolves around the mystical four elements that were believed to be the building blocks of life: earth, wind, fire, and water. In that sense, you can't say that it is a copy of Naruto or any other previous cartoon, for that matter. It is just another way to tell an old story.

In my opinion, Avatar is a very interesting cartoon per se. There are many quasy-religious, quasy-mystical and quasy-historical overtones in it, and the story itself, divided in four "books", one devoted to each of these elements, reminds me also of some of the most time-honored narrative styles: here we see a character, endowed with special gifts / powers, but lacking the maturity / ability to control them, evolve as the story unfolds until he becomes a master that brings balance to a distressed universe / world.

Just as a comparison, this layout has been used to tell stories since forever: from The Oddissey, to The Three Musketeers, to modern day stories like Harry Potter or even the Star Wars saga, all of them have something in common: they tell the story of a hero living in a distressed world and how he evolves and grows and matures to become pivotal in the transformation of that world. Pure literary tradition. ^^

I think that the important thing about a cartoon, is that they are meant to entertain. But then there are also different kinds of cartoons, as there are many different ways to entertain. For example, there are cartoons that use funny situations and simple jokes to make people laugh(the traditional Looney Tunes come to mind, and yet those too have their own share of controversial situations; for example, they were used as propaganda during World War II). There are also cartoons that have a general set of guidelines but that don't actually have a "plot" or a story, being basically meant to show a series of un-connected situations or events in a non-continuos timeline. Most Nicktoons fall in this category, though some members might argue against that. And then we have the cartoons that are based on a literary story, with complex characters that interact in complex scenarios and situations over a determined time frame. Each episode is an integral part of the story, just like a chapter from a book, and the story goes through some well-defined stages until it reaches a climax and a conclussion.

Avatar is one of such cartoons. You can see a couple of episodes and either like it or not; but to actually understand it you have to follow the series and watch all, or most, of the episodes in order to see if Ang can evolve and become the real Avatar or not, and see how the story ends. And perhaps that's the problem with Avatar: in our rerun-filled TV networks, it can take a long time to see new episodes of a cartoon, and it could take a very long time to see all the chapters of the story.

Just my two cents.
