Amazon has no shortage of Blu-ray deals right now, thanks to Cyber Monday 2019. But anime fans may be interested in one particularly good bundle that’s nearly 60% off right now, as it features two incredibly good series all rolled up into one neat package. For a limited time, fans can snag the Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra complete series collection on Blu-ray for $41.49–for context, this set normally goes for a full $100. This Cyber Monday deal probably won’t last long, so now’s the time to grab it for yourself or someone on your shopping list this Christmas.
Avatar and Legend of Korra Complete Series Collection | $41.49 (
Composed of three phenomenal seasons, Avatar: The Last Airbender takes place in a world where certain people are born with the gift of telepathically manipulating one of the four elements–earth, fire, water, and air–by performing a martial art called bending. The series stars Aang, a 12-year-old airbender who’s also the Avatar, a being who reincarnates after death and each time is born with the ability to learn how to bend all four elements.
After accidentally crashing into an iceberg and being cryogenically frozen, Aang awakens over a century after the Fire Nation developed industrialization and went to war against the other three kingdoms. The Fire Nation began its conquest with the extermination of the Air Nation–knowing the Avatar would reincarnate there next–killing every citizen in it and making Aang the last surviving airbender. Aang sets out to learn how to bend the other three elements so he can be powerful enough to stop the Fire Nation, initially only accompanied on his quest by the waterbender Katara and her normal brother Sokka, and then also joined by blind earthbender Toph and disgraced Fire Nation prince Zuko.
The Blu-ray collection also includes Avatar: The Last Airbender’s follow-up, The Legend of Korra. Taking place after the death of Aang, the four-season series follows Korra, the reincarnation of the Avatar after Aang. Like The Last Airbender, the beginning of The Legend of Korra is about the new Avatar learning how to bend the elements she doesn’t have a grasp on (with air, ironically, being the one she requires the most help with). Korra eventually goes out into the world in order to make it a better place, as Aang did before her, though her journey is a lot less black and white, exploring more nuanced themes like racism, sexuality, physical disability, and religion.
