Product Description


Book 1: Water, Vol. 1
Mysterious, visually beautiful at times, and surprisingly funny, Avatar: Book 1, Volume 1 is the exciting story of Aang, a 12-year-old reincarnation of the ancient Avatar, whose purpose (in an imagined world that seems both ancient and futuristic) is to restore peace and order between warring armies of the four elements: fire, earth, water, and air. At one time or another, over thousands of years, the Avatar has been embodied in masters of each of the elements. Aang (who is freed from a century-long sleep inside an iceberg) happens to be an "airbender," capable of using air and wind as powerful forces for moving objects and defeating hostile armies of firebenders. The feature-length Avatar follows Aang and a couple of friends as he becomes reacquainted with the world he knew before his 100-year hibernation--a world now lost to history. The story also concerns internal dramas within the unforgiving world of firebenders, who are intent on destruction and conquest. This engaging story, very pleasant to look at in its rich tones of blue and orange, is for all ages. --Tom Keogh

Book 1: Water, Vol. 2
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 1: Water, Volume 2 continues the adventurous if half-comic journey of 12-year-old Airbender Aang, reincarnation of an ancient avatar, and his friends Katara and Sokka as they seek a teacher to help Aang fulfill his peacemaking destiny in a war-torn world. The four episodes on this disc, a follow-up to the elegant, magical series introduction, find the trio wandering through sundry Earth Nation cities, where they encounter signs of troubles between the once-harmonious, elemental tribes representing fire, earth, air, and water. They also bump into trouble with the occasional evil kingdom, as in "The King of Omashu," where Aang must go through various trials to save Katara and Sokka from a bizarre execution. (They're encased in growing, crystal structures.) "Imprisoned" finds Katara inadvertently responsible for the arrest of an Earthbending boy who dares to use his powers while his people are under Firebender occupation. The ambitious, two-part "Winter Solstice" is the best production in this collection, a pairing of storylines involving the capture of a Firebender war criminal and the hopes of a frightened village that turns to Aang to defeat a monster from the spirit world. The action is still original and fun on this sequel--most of it continues to be based on exciting uses of the elements--and the lead trio's characters (Aang the scamp, Katara the idealist, Sokka the skeptic) are still a pleasure to be with. --Tom Keogh

Book 1: Water, Vol. 3
The Avatar saga continues with four of the anime series' strongest stories yet on Book 1: Water, Volume 3, mixing goofy comedy with mythic drama in the spirit of Avatar's magical debut (Book 1 Water, Volume 1) and engaging follow-up (Book 1 Water, Volume 2). Volume 3 concerns the continuing (perilous) travels of Aang, the 12-year-old Airbender destined to heal the rift between the world's air, water, fire, and earth peoples, and his friends Katara and Sokka. "The Waterbending Scroll" finds Katara so jealous over Aang's quick mastery of complicated waterbending techniques that the trio ends up in trouble with a cluster of cutthroat pirates. "Jet" is an interesting story of an adolescent boy leading a Robin Hood-like rebellion against the firebending occupiers of his land. Charismatic and rakish, Jet makes Katara swoon and becomes a hero to Aang--until his true colors and agenda show up later. "The Great Divide" places Aang and company in the position of mediating a truce between refugees seeking assistance across a great canyon. Finally, "The Storm" is a superb piece which shows us, in parallel narratives, how Aang was fleeing his oppressed life as an avatar-in-training a century earlier when he became encased in ice, and how the driven, seemingly merciless Prince Zuko lost his own boyhood innocence before setting out to capture Aang. This excellent collection carries on the series' imaginative, graceful animation, making Avatar a real pleasure to watch. --Tom Keogh

Book 1: Water, Vol. 4

Book 1: Water, Vol. 5
Chapters 17 through 20 of Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 1 Water, Vol. 5 find Aang, the 12-year-old Avatar destined to bring peace to the world by mastering the four elements, once again in direct collision with the forces of the Fire nation. In "The Northern Air Temple," a sad Aang visits the ruins of a monastery well known to him in his past life. Aang is shocked to discover a tribe of faux Airbenders living there, presided over by an inventor with a dark and even treacherous secret. "The Waterbending Master" introduces Aang to a mentor he would just as soon avoid: an old Waterbender who can teach him to move, shape, and fight with liquid, prerequisites to Aang assuming his place as the world’s savior. Meanwhile, Aang's traveling companion Katara is frustrated by that same master’s refusal to sharpen her own natural, Waterbending talent; until, that is, an unexpected link between them becomes clear. (Aang's other friend, Sokka, stays busy--and crazy--chasing a princess who gives him mixed signals about her romantic interest.) "The Siege of the North, Parts 1 and 2" is yet another epic confrontation between Admiral Zhao's Fire Navy fleet and the Aang gang. The twist this time is that Zhao attempts the murder of Prince Zuko, an action that cannot go without consequences. As usual, Avatar is visually exciting and highly original, an otherworldly yet fully accessible fantasy full of dreams and good humor. --Tom Keogh

It's almost a miracle these days for a popular show to have quality and artistic integrity, but that's exactly what "Avatar: The Last Airbender" is ... a miraculous achievement in animation. The entire series is well plotted; the episodes (or "chapters," as the show calls them) are written with the perfect blend of action, humor, and drama; the entire world is wonderfully rich and detailed; the characters are multidimensional and voiced by one of the best group of voice actors ever; and the animation is simply superb.

I read that the creators originally set out to make a "boy's martial arts cartoon." Thankfully the show turned into so much more, appealing to both males and females. Half the characters in Avatar are female, and Katara, Toph, and Suki are great role models for anyone. Aang is a great role model for spiritualism, pacifism, and vegetarianism. And Appa is loyalty and adorability personified!!

All three seasons of the show are remarkably fantastic (something that can't be said for the pointless and empty sequel series, sadly, and the less said about that horrible live-action movie adaptation the better!) And I've never seen a DVD collection with so many incredible extras! My family and I have watched the entire show many, many times (including once with all the commentaries!)--in fact, it's tradition at our house to watch the series in its entirety every year!

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 16 2010
Format: DVD
Most western animation for children is, to put it simply, really wretched. At best, it's tolerable.

But a shining exception would be the tale of the Avatar of all four elements, and to restore the balance in the world. "Avatar The Last Airbender - Book 1" serves as a solid first season to this series, with its colourful world, vivid action and complex characters. It may be aimed at kids, but it's a solid enough series to be enjoyed by any age.

South Pole Water Tribe siblings Katara and Sokka stumble across a glowing iceberg, with a young Airbender boy named Aang (and his flying bison) sealed inside. All Airbenders were killed long ago by the Fire Nation -- and Aang is the Avatar who mysteriously vanished a century ago, and is the only hope against the Fire Nation.

Unfortunately, a Fire Nation prince named Zuko has been wandering the world in search of Aang, and agrees to let the Water Tribe alone if Aang surrenders. Katara and Sokka manage to rescue their friend, and since Katara isn't experienced enough in waterbending to teach Aang, they set out for the North Pole to find a waterbending master -- with Zuko and his cruel rival Admiral Zhao in hot pursuit.

Along the way, they encounter hurricanes, woman warriors, a loopy old king who seems very familiar, a Spirit World Beast, pirates, teenage rebels, two tribes locked in an eternal feud, a mysterious blue masked man, fortunetellers, a rogue Firebender, and an Air Temple turned into a steampunk city. But when they arrive at the north pole, Aang and his friends find that their time is running out...

The highest compliment I can pay "Avatar: The Last Airbender" is that it's like a thoroughly solid action/fantasy anime.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is an amazing series created by Nickelodeon. Copying the artistic styles from Japan, Avatar manages to tell an amazing story of a boy, Aang, who needs to save the world from an evil tyrant (the Fire Lord). Throughout this journey he meets many people, some who become his allies and others who will become his enemies. In this part of the series, Aang must learn the power of waterbending and must travel to the North while facing many challenges.

Although the story has a basic premise it still manages to be extremely unique due to the charming and endearing characters. Aang is joined by many people, two of whom (Katara and Sokka) become his traveling allies during his journey to defeat the Fire Lord. Throughout their journey, they all learn to depend on one another and often the witty dialogue between the three of them is the main source of comedy. Aang is also being hunted by the Fire Lord's son, Zuko, who while has evil intentions, is still a very well-rounded character whom we feel for.

Many people in the world of Avatar have unique powers that allow them to move the elements of the world (water, wind, fire, earth). Aang is the last being who can bend the element of air (and thus the name airbender) but he is also the Avatar, a being who has the power to learn all four elements. Each element is presented differently and is very noticeable when they fight (earthbenders are more sturdy and powerful while waterbenders rely on flow and fluid movement). The fight scenes are amazing in Avatar and it is very obvious that the animators have spent time studying the fighting styles each characters uses.

While I find Avatar: The Last Airbender to be and amazing series, I didn't give the box set a perfect score for a few reasons.

I have to admit that when I saw television commercials of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", I didn't think much of it. I though to myself:"Another atempt at "American Anime""
Well, I kept hearing more and more about it on the Internet, rave reviews and massive fandom...my interest grew.
I finally decided to buy the boxset, and mind you, I do not regret it (even if I feel the price is a little high).
Avatar is an instant hit. Fans of martial arts movies and fantasy buffs alike will like this title. Its just fun to see the story and its characters evolve from episode to episode. It's an epic "quest" to save the world, and even if has been done before, this one has its own orignal twist with a world all of its own based on ancient China.
Great animation, which is surprising for an American title (must be because all the animating took place in Korea). The voice acting and music are well done too.
Adults and children alike will like this series. I'm 24 (soon to be 25) and I own all of the dvds that have been released to date and I am eagerly awaiting the release of Book III-Fire-Volume-1
