Synopsis

The children's cable network Nickelodeon fashions an American spin on Japanese anime with their original series Avatar: The Latest Airbender. On a futuristic Earth torn between the warring elements of Air, Earth, Water, and Fire, only one special being known as the Avatar can bring peace to the conflicted planet. The trouble is, the Avatar is an immature 12-year-old boy called Aang, who would rather wander the world having fun-filled adventures than settle down and face his heroic destiny. AVATAR ably blends kids-oriented comedy with martial-arts action-adventure worthy of its Japanese counterparts. This collection presents the series' second season in its entirety.

Format:DVD
Avatar, the legend of Aang is superb, but why do DVD Region 2 customers get short changed!?!

I have discovered from reviews, since making the my orders, that the Region 2 version of 'Avatar - The Legend Of Aang - Book 1 - Complete [DVD]' has been made with no subtitles and NO special features, etc, and one disc less,unlike the versions made for the USA and rest of the world. The same is true of 'Avatar - The Legend Of Aang - Book 2 - Complete [DVD]', and the same for 'Avatar - The Legend Of Aang - Book 3 - Complete [DVD]' , not to mention us having had to wait an extra two years for them to come out!

'Avatar - The Legend Of Aang - Book 3 - Complete [DVD]' will be 125 minutes shorter to boot than the Region 1 version sold by Amazon.com!

In protest, and in spite of being an avid Avatar fan, I am therefore cancelling my orders for all three sets! Why should we in Region 2 be repeatedly palmed off with lesser products than those produced for the USA and elsewhere!?! - Playstation 3 being another outstanding example!

Nickelodeon/Paramount Home Entertainment, why treat your customers over here in Region 2 like second class citizens!?! It's not good enough!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice release... but where are the SUBTITLES? 28 May 2009
Format:DVD
Great series, wonderfully animated, but where are the subtitles?

I come from Denmark, where 80% of all television is either English or American and everything is subbed. Although I'm fluent in English I'm used to reading the subs too and getting every bit of dialogue. When I watch movies I sometimes turn on the english subs so I don't miss anything.

I CAN live with it, I just have to turn up the sound. But I think it's very incovenient for people with bad or no hearing. Why should kids who're hard of hearing nor be able to enjoy this show?

5.0 out of 5 stars The boxset yeah!! 10 Jan 2008
By kicky
Format:DVD
It has been hard to get hold of the boxset in the UK. I have waited over 2years for this to come out and without the internet I would still be waiting. So this boxset of the first complete book one was really appreciated.
This anime story follows the Avatar, Aang, who has been lost for 100 years (I'm glad I didn't have to wait that long for the boxset!)The Avatar is the master of all four elements, air, water, earth and fire.
The Fire nation attacked and wants to take over the other nations. Its up to Aang to stop them, but not before he has mastered all four elements and with the help of a few friends along the way he is in for one big adventure. But with the Fire nation hot on his trail will he be able to save the world in time?
Avatar is Classified PG.
It is great family fun and for all those who have abit of kid left in them you will find this adventure really funny with some great scripted lines and entertaining for the whole family. I really enjoy watching them and anime fans won't be disappointed.
This is a 6 disc boxset with a cardboard cover. There is just one sheet of paper as an inlay, where I would have liked a small booklet inlay and for the kids a poster to offer a more visual image, although there is a map on the paper inlay of the whole nations.
It includes all the episodes from book one and with a bonus dvd of the usual 'making of...'and 'behind the scenes.'
Great animation, story line, plots and subplots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Brillliance!! 16 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
"Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished.

A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new avatar--an air bender named Aang. And although his air-bending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he is ready to save anyone. But I believe Aang can save the world."

This monologue is the opening to every episode of the first season of Avatar - the legnd of Aang and I absolutely never got sick of hearing it. This show is amazing, my seven year old sister and I watched it together, she loved it and I loved it. On my own I managed to get through all 20 episodes in 3 sittings. The characters in this show are all endearing, even the enemy Lord Zuko who for his own reasons is tracking the Avatar.

Aang travels the world with his companions, Appa, a huge flying bison, Katara, a waterbender from the south water tribe and Sokka, Katara's brother who has no bending powers. This first season sees Aang and the gang (not intentional rhyme) travelling to the North Pole to find Aang and Katara a waterbending teacher so that Aang can become a full Avatar and save the world from the Evil Fire Lord Ozai, along the way Aang learns what happened to the world in his absence and what he must do to save those suffering.

The animation is brilliantly drawn and the colours are sublime. Every episode is a treat to watch and is vibrant with humour and messages about how our actions can affect others. The rich dialogue gives it a boost and the character voices are well chosen, the actors play their characters well.

Format:DVD
A nice box cover, for an european only relase. Seems a good deal but soon you discover its flaws. Unlike it's US counterpart it lacks most of the extras. More important the overall quality is under the standard of the early era dvd. Interlaced video is unwatchable and doesn't do justice to this awesome show full of action. If you have a way to watch Region 1 DVDs, buy the US version, the only things you'll miss is the box that contain the 3 season boxes.

Update: it seems that even the US version present interlacing artifacts on the book 1 so a worth version of this show doesn't exist in retail. Unfortunately.
