As always, we swim in the wondrous pool of The Legend of Korra: Book 2: Spirits. Our diving board is The Guide, a great episode that shows Korra reuniting with Aang’s family and Jinora revealing her special spirit connection.
And Mako gets arrested by Beifong and the Mustachioed Duo. Bummer.
After that, we discuss the first two episodes of Welcome to the NHK. We meet Satō, a depressed young dude living in Tokyo. He’s a hikikomori and a NEET and he’s befriended by a shy and determined girl named Misaki who believes she can “save” him from his anti-social ways.
Next: Korra: Book 2 episodes 10-12 (A New Spiritual Age, Night of a Thousand Stars, and Harmonic Convergence) and episodes 3-4 of Welcome to the NHK!
