We found a DVD and information page
The Legend of Korra Book Four: Balance
Before we had reviewed Books Two and Three, we had never heard of or seen The Legend of Korra series. We now are familiar with it and have gotten caught up on all of the books thus far. This book, Book Four: Balance, is the end of the series. It was much easier to understand Book Four this time around. The animation in all of The Legend of Korra series is really well done. It isn't really our style of series, but it draws you in and keeps your attention.
Korra, who has been the main character, is once again the powerful female lead, but this time she is recovering from battle. She is trying to regain her sense of self and just survive and while she is doing this, Kuvira tries to take over the Earth Kingdom. These 13 episodes really show the strength that Korra truly has and why she has been the focus of the series, especially the episode Korra Alone. B hasn't had tons of interest in her, but enjoys watching the episodes play out and the Avatar aspects. The whole series has been full of deep story lines, powerful characters, and epic battles. The fighting and battles can be a little much for what I feel is appropriate for B still, but older viewers would probably find them intriguing. This final book seems to conclude the series in a well developed way.
