    A war?!?! These are good. And Toph is still a bad-posterior. On to the finale.

    This was pretty enjoyable, but still had the sickeningly sweet romance that was in the first book. And there were some other small things I didn't like. Katara and Aang still call each other sweetie, and Katara even gets jealous when they go to a fan club for Aang, full of excited, squealy girls. Based on what I saw from the TV show, I doubt that the romanca would move from a random kiss to calling each other those sorts of names. Nobody really uses those terms when they're in a relationship. Old people call younger people sweetie. People in a relationship don't.I liked how Toph's metalbending school was explored more in this book. It would be difficult to teach students something that isn't really perfected. It's kind of discouraging sometimes, but it really shows all the characters going off onto their own path. There also still is the humor. It can be childish sometimes, but I still love it. I will laugh out loud sometimes. It was just really cute.I wish that there was more of Zuko, since he is my favorite character. He does have to make a hard decision on what to do for the Harmony Restoration Movement. I like the political parts, showing why amd why not the fire nation colonies should be taken out. Man, things would just be so much better if the romance wasn't sickening. It still was a really fun story!

    Sigh...what wouldn't I give to be trained under Toph! This graphic novel was beautifully scripted and illustrated. All my favourite characters coming back, just a teensy-tiny bit older (view spoiler)[calling their bae 'sweetie' and giving Sokka the oggies LOL!! (hide spoiler)] and having their epic adventures :) Excellent!

    "Promises shouldn't be broken. Not ever." Another great Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel! I loved the storyline of The Promise: Part Two, particularly because it featured two of my favourite ATLA characters: Zuko and Toph. I just love Zuko so so much. He is a precious smol bean. Bless him.

    Leído para el 2015 Reading Challenge #40. Una novela gráfica.¡Woooooooow! No, ¿cómo puede acabar así? Se viene otra guerra, omfg. Creo que hubo mucho relleno y cosas que nada que ver, pero el final fue bastante bueno y me Toph y Sokka<3 siempre haciendo reír. A leer el último \o/.

    Introduction: After reading part one of “Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise,” I was excited to check out the second part of this fantastic series and I was definitely not disappointed by the results of this volume!What is this story about? In this volume, after Fire Lord Zuko turns down the Harmony Restoration Movement for the Earth Kingdom, there seems to be an impeding war brewing between Zuko and Earth King Kuei and it is up to Aang and Katara to prevent that war from happening! Meanwhile, Toph and Sokka try to train Toph’s bumbling students in the art of metal bending in order to defend the school against a class of fire benders!What I loved about this story: Gene Luen Yang’s writing: Gene Luen Yang’s writing continues to amaze me with its faithfulness to the legendary TV series! I loved the way that Gene Luen Yang continues to develop each character, especially Aang and Katara’s relationship with each other, which actually fully reached its “CUTE AND HAPPY” and not the “WILL THEY OR WON’T THEY” status at last! I was also sitting on the edge of my seat whenever Zuko confronts his father, since it seems that Ozai has an ulterior motive up his sleeves as he is always smiling slyly whenever Zuko visits and it makes me wonder just what kind of impact Ozai still has on Zuko and how it would affect Zuko’s ruling as the new Fire Lord. We are definitely seeing Zuko starting to crack under the pressure with his present ruling of the Fire Kingdom and I loved the way that Gene Luen Yang portrayed that as it made the situation even more interesting to watch! I also loved the side story about Toph starting a school for metal bending and how she tries to teach her bumbling students how to metal bend. It was such an enjoyable experience to see Toph actually teaching students her abilities and I am interested in seeing how this will all play out in future volumes!Gurihiru’s artwork: Gurihiru’s artwork continues to remain faithful to the characters’ designs and I really loved the images of Sokka continuing to be the comic relief in this series! My favorite artwork of Sokka in this volume was when he and Toph jumped off of Appa to land at Toph’s new school at the beginning and you can see Sokka panicking throughout the whole ordeal!What made me feel uncomfortable about this story: Not really a big deal, but the only problem I had with this volume was that there was not that much action in the story like the first volume. Even though this volume does have comedic situations happening to the characters, such as Toph and Sokka trying to teach three students how to metal bend, I actually did wanted to see some battle sequences in this volume. But, I did enjoy the rising tension with Zuko caving in to pressure of being the new Fire Lord and the possible battle that is about to come between Zuko and Earth King Kuei.Final Thoughts: Overall, “Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise Part Two” is a brilliant continuation of the first volume and I cannot wait to see more adventures from Aang and the gang as they try to undo all the harm that the Fire Nation brought to the world!Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    So many funny parts in this one. Manly were Sokka is concerned.But I think the build up for the potential war was being overshadowed by the metalbending school rivalry scenes and Aang and Katara's visit to see the Earth King. It was nonetheless, very amusing and appealing, I quite liked Aang's little marble Scooters. So cute. And OMG little Zuko, in Ozai's memory, But hold the phone are they trying to back us feel sorry for him? Well it worked on me. We only get snap shot scenes of Zuko kind of like in The day of black sun Part 1: The Invasion. The cover did give us the indication that Zuko would not be a big part of this one, the way he is in the far left hand cover, doing his own thing back there. But the best part was the end, the death stare between the Earth King and Zuko- I got Chills.

    I really love these Avatar graphic-novels. They're a great way to dive back into the world of The Last Airbender, and they're just very fun.The story continues with Aang trying to calm tensions between the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom. Zuko is having struggles with his identity, while Katara is going through some jealous phases over other girls swooning over Aang.On the more funny and lighthearted note, I really liked the Sokka and Toph story line. It was very refreshing and funny to read about their own adventures, and they're the two funniest characters, and it's always great when they are paired together.The way the story ended in this chapter was very exciting, and it makes me eager to learn how it concludes.

    I really enjoyed this second part. It was good to see the characters begin to head towards the roles they'd play in Legend of Korra, while also giving a character who was quite one dimensional in the show some development, which made my feelings towards him change. Overall I really enjoyed this.

    Review for all three parts under the cut.(view spoiler)[YOOOOOO.Each one of these parts read exactly like an episode of Avatar and I LOVED IT!Part one: Oh goddamn. I didn’t even know removing occupations and cultural identity issues would be a thing! It MAKES SENSE THOUGH I just didn’t even think of it! ZUKO THOUGH. ZUKO BBY WHY ARE YOU GOING TO YOUR FATHER. THAT IS THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD TO DO. But really though I’m just so impressed that it’s exploring the mixing of the four nations and that there’s no way everything - and everyONE - are strictly one nation or another. Identities don’t work like that! THIS IS SUCH A GOOD STORY OH MY GOD.Part two: It was good! But not as good as the other two. Toph and Sokka’s part seemed rather unimportant to me and just was there as comic relief, which works fine in anime-format but in a book, it just felt awkward and unnecessary. AND THE OTHER BITS WERE JUST HARD TO READ. I mean don’t get me wrong - the complications and emotions and strife involved are brilliantly complex and amazingly gotten across and is just SO GREAT and fits right in with the rest of the series. But these two feelings combined made this part my least favorite.Part three: MY FAVORITE OF ALL THE THREE. Holy shit what a good message for cultural acceptance and individuality and identity and a DIRECT no-no towards cultural appropriation. SO GREAT. And it all resolved (relatively) smoothly and laid out the story for the next comic and just AAHHH. DAMNIT THOUGH ZUKO WHY OH WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO AZULA. DID YOU NOT LEARN AFTER TALKING TO YOUR FATHER? YOU ARE GOING TO THE WORLD’S WORST PEOPLE FOR HELP AND ADVICE.Overall COMPLETELY AMAZING AND FANTASTIC, and PERFECTLY FITS IN WITH THE MOOD AND AURA OF THE TV SHOW. Do you know how hard it is to translate a show into a comic, and the same for the reverse? PRETTY HARD. BUT I SEE IT DONE PERFECTLY WITH ANIME ALL THE TIME. AND THIS IS NO EXCEPTION. HOLY SHIT SO GOOD. COMIC TWO HERE I COME. (And that much closer to KORRAAAAAA)(hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Wow okay so this comic took me almost 3 months (off by one day!) to complete! That is ridiculous!! But anyway, on to the review. I have to say the illustrations in this comic are just awesome. I have been reading really old Batman comics and returning to this one is like a breath of fresh air. It is so beautiful and detailed and the colours really pull you in. The story line progressed quite well, originally the gang was together (for like the first two pages and that was it) but Toph and Sokka went one way, to build Toph's new metal bending school and Aang and Katara went another, to talk to the Earth King about the events which transpired in the first volume. For Toph and Sokka, it was difficult to get the students to metal bend and for Aang and Katara, they needed to stop the Earth King from waging a war against Fire Lord Zuko. Speaking of Zuko, he continually snuck in to visit his imprisoned father, which didn't always turn out the way he expected it to. Also, Aang and Katara met a 'few' fans of the Avatar and Toph and Sokka were dueled to the sit for the building that housed Toph's new school. It was all very interesting (despite how long it took me to finish this comic). I loved the different types of relationships you saw in this comic. The writers were not afraid to show what kind of person a character was or how they connected to other people. I have a feeling that the next volume is going to get even better and I cannot wait to find out what happens next!

    3.5/5 porque ese final mejoró todo!!Al principio me costaba engancharme con la historia, y además, el archivo parecía mal escaneado o algo, porque se veía borroso en partes, y se notaba que estaba traducido por fans o algo por el estilo, porque tenía algunas faltas (como "llendo").La historia sigue caaaasi la misma línea que el tomo anterior, aunque creo que decae un poco.Lo que más me interesó fue la parte de Toph y Sokka entrenando a maestros metal, y lo que de verdad me dio bronca fue ese final, y lo que pasa y parece que va a pasar. Necesito leer el tercer y último tomo!!!!!!!!!! (aunque no ahora, se me cierran los ojos del sueño, ja)Creo que la entrega que sigue lo dirá todo... aunque, bueno, me está gustando bastante el cómic. (Aang y Katara juntos en la serie me ecantaan y los shippeé de chiquita incluso sin saber el conocimiento de la palabra, pero acá me parecen demasiado meh y me ponen algo incómoda sus escenas de cierta forma. Veremos cómo termina)

    What I enjoyed most about this,was that it took off exactly where the series ended. Also, they mentioned specific happenings and characters which only an "educated" Avatar fan would know the correct answer for. In comparison to "Smoke and Shadow", the characters were given their whole personality in depth. And example can be seen in Toph, who is a bad-ass young girl with a sensible heart. To sum up this review: it is wonderful and I am gonna stop reviewing now so I can read the next part.

    4/5 stars.Not much to say about this one, still really enjoyable. Aang and Katara are literally my favourite couple ever and I weep when they're together. It's sad to see Zuko struggling with being the Fire Lord, but it's so realistic too. All through the show he was questioning what he would do, and now he is! Onto part three!

    Alright a couple of things:1) I'm greatly disappointed Aang and the other nit-wits in on his team, except Katara and Zuko, can't see that removing people that have been there for over 100 years is NOT A SOLUTION- THAT RESTORES NO HARMONY. IT JUST BREEDS MORE HATRED- the people of the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom have made a life together in Yu Dao and they should remain there together. 2) The Earth King apparently grew a pair and wants to defend his kingdom- yeah like 100 years too late for that. What you're doing isn't noble or manly- it's terrible diplomacy. And I thought he decided to travel with Bosco? It's never explained how he came back to be the earth king all of a sudden....can he even earth bend???????????3)TOPH- I loved Toph in the show. Honestly, probably my favorite character, right next to Zuko. BUT SHE WAS SO WRONG IN THIS EDITION. The Metal Bending Academy she started wasn't hers to being with- she just found an abandoned building and used it. The land is not the Fire Nation's, great we got that, but the Fire Nation has worked that land for 100 years and that school was built by fire benders- you can't just waltz in and take it. And of course, her and her students win the fight, they miraculously beat the fire bending pupils, no mention how they did it, just that they did and you know good prevails over evil right? Can't the characters see it's not black and white- STOP BLAMING all of the Fire Nation for the mistakes of their ancestors! Even they didn't kick people off land, they formed colonies and left the earth benders there. Yes, it was not a fair system at first, but it evolved and now they've made a prosperous living together. It hurts both parties to split them apart like this.Why don't they ask the people of Yu Dao what they want??KORI is the only one with sense (and Katara and Zuko...and kind of Ozai but for the wrong reasons...):THIS IS REAL HARMONY AND PEACE- FIRE AND EARTH TOGETHER:But I love the end art:

    I need to try and contrict myself to reading one of these a day, otherwise it'll be over too soon and I'm not ready for that :D These comics capture the humour of the TV Show perfectly and I just wish they would continue the show...I just ordered the next three comics...but these are so expensive. I love them and they are great and the comics and the show are just perfect for escaping reality for a while, which I long to do! The artwork, too, is just amazing!!

    Lo mejor de este volumen son Toph, Sokka y la escuela de metal benders. Es interesante ver todo el dilema de Zuko y cómo, por muy malo y loco que sea Ozai, tiene unos puntos muy razonables y hasta llega a estar en lo correcto un par de veces.Aang me desesperó porque simplemente no escucha.

    Zuko continues to make bad decisions (just stop Zuko!), Katang meets Avatar fans girls throwing jealousy into the relationship, Sokka is apparently a "Motivation Bender" 😂, the earth king grows a backbone, and Mai breaks it off with Zuko (Yay, but it will never last).

    This was just as fun as the first one, and just as filled with stupid romance with lines that feel like the writers didn't even bother to say out loud. The politics are interesting and some of the jokes are funny, but overall it still feels like it's using its full potential.

    I felt the characters in this were more true to the characters in the series. When I was reading the dialogue, I could hear their voices in my head because the way they said things actually was how they would have said it on TV.I really liked how they handle the flash backs. The pictures are almost in a sepia color so it's very easy to distinguish them.The characters all look a little taller, specifically Aang and Toph. I still think the "Sweetie" nickname from Aang to Katara is a little weird. But I enjoy watching Katara get jealous of the Official Avatar Aang Fan Club girls. =)Sokka I have to say was probably my favorite in this book. He was is old, funny self. Loved it. And I really liked how it ended with the metalbending students. I actually kind of like those characters, even though they're slightly annoying. I'm not exactly sure how important those scenes will be to bridge the gap between the Aang series and the Korra series, but it was a good story - especially for an 80 page book.Zuko still bothers me though. He's not in it as much, so that's why I give this 5 stars, because it didn't really focus on the Zuko I don't like. I hate that he is back to questioning what side he is on. He had went through a lot of self discovery toward the end of the series, and I don't like seeing him back pedal. But I do still want to know what happened to his mom! I hope we find out --- though, I'm not holding my breath because the final book in The Promise series will most likely only be 80 pages as well, and I don't think they can fit that in with all the other stuff they will have to tie up.But overall I really like it. I really like the reference to certain key things from the series that everyone loved. My favorite was the "space earth" that Sokka had brought back for Toph. I liked seeing what she did with it, and how it came into play. I feel like this one was done even a little better than the first - at least the characters, Toph and Sokka in particular, were truer to their characters on the show. The illustrations were still great. I really like how they draw the firebending. I think anyone who loved the series will enjoy these books --- we just need Zuko to come to his senses...again....

    I still hold that these are not as good as they would be if they were written and directed by the shows creators. Book 2 was much better than book 1. It was neat to see the characters a little more grown up (something I enjoy about LOK too).Toph and Sokka are much closer to their characters in this book. Toph picking her nose was very funny. I loved that Sokka still cries for his Space Sword. I loved his motivational bending too, perfect Sokka.Aang and Katara go to a fan club full of girls making Kitara jealous. This was done in a previous episode. There was no need for it to take up as many pages for the purpose it served.I am super phsyced about the-would-be assassin, earth bending fire nation girl, I forgot her name. She tried to kill Zuko in book 1… that girl. My money is that she and Zuko make babies named Mako and Bolin, just a hunch.I am not a fan of the dialogues between Zuko and his father. It was ok in this book because they were minimal and impactful. They were productive for about 50% of the dialogue. I still do not understand why he would talk to his evil father when he has is wise uncle, does not make sense to me.I expect the upcoming battle will be stopped by the Avatar and will give birth to Republic City. Not looking for plot surprises, but I really hope they give that meaty, juicy character development that we are all slavering for.If these were stand along novels, they would not earn as high a star rating. They are kind of like back up dancers. No one care about them or knows who they are, but they are cool because they roll be Beiber.

    How could I not read and review a spin off series that takes place where Avatar's third season ended? I have loved the world of Avatar since I was a little kid watching it on the floor of my grandmother's living room. Needless to say, it holds a special place in my heart so I can get a little...obsessive. I'm very critical of any spin offs or fanfiction that stems from my favorite television show (in other words, I think that the M. Night Shyamalan version of Avatar was a disgrace). Still, I pass these graphic novels/mangas on with my stamp of approval. The artwork isn't perfect, but I like the representation. My pet peeve would be the way Zuko and Katara were drawn. They each just looked different in a weird way. Honestly though, that was the only thing that bothered me. The new writer captured the dialogue of the characters perfectly. They're still sassy and funny in the quirky way that attracted me to the show. The character of Sokka was spot on! Basically, if you're a fan of the television series, this is definitely worth picking up. Especially because if you're like me you want to know what happens with Zuko's mother!~Jess

    I loved spending more time with Team Avatar, but I had several issues with both parts of The Promise. The first is that Zuko acts out of character. After all he does to overcome his past, his family, and his own nature, these two graphic novels undo. Going to Ozai for advice? Gah. Secondly, do Aang and Katara really have to call each other "sweetie" that much? At least they could come up with a variety of "oogie" nicknames, rather than both using the same one, so often. But I enjoyed the artwork, and generally I am excited to see these comics bridge the gap between ALA and The Legend of Korra. I hope to eventually see Aang mature and become an adult, because it was incredibly disconnected to see the adult Aang in LoK, who seems like an entirely different character than the goofy Aang we know and love.
