This is a great gateway series to anime, combining American and Japanese styles of animation, while also blending in themes of Chinese mythology. It may have aired on Nickelodeon, but it's not just a kids show! Aang is able to control all four nature elements. He's a loveable goof, but his abilities make him the one capable of ending war against the nations. Together with his friends, they work to save and rebuild the nations. The live action movie may have sucked, but the animated series is full of great storytelling, and gorgeous artistic moments.
Have you seen this series? If not, what is your favorite cartoon series?
