Just to kick out the last journal... here you have a screenshot of Bolin and Eska ! I know it's a bit late for posting this, Bryan published it in his tumblr about 4 days ago... i haven't checked it lately...


Source

Hmm... interesting... this could approve BolinxEska theory... xD. But, i just cant ship Bolin and Eska because... you know, Bolin is all energetic-goofy-GORGEOUS and Eska seems like the "Mai" of Legend of Korra.
Who knows, maybe a nice girl is behind that "androgynous creepiness"

And another interesting this to note is the background. I does not look like the south pole to me, it's more like they where in republic city. But both of them are wearing that big winter coats; it looks like the South pole has had a lot of reconstruction in the last 70 years...

What do you think about this?

Oh, and here you have a fan made animation based on that screenshot

Source

The first impression i got after watching this GIF got me for a second thinking it was a leaked animation from Book 2, and then after reading Bryan's commentary i realized it was FAN-MADE!
YES, really impressive!

I remember back in the Avatar days… the typical fanart we would get would be a charming, childish crayon drawing stuffed in an envelope. Nowadays on Korra, I take a skewed screenshot with my phone, post it, and shortly thereafter someone un-skews it, crops it, separates the character levels, clones the background, “Ken Burns” it with a multilevel slide, animates the characters blinking and talking, tints it, and makes a GIF out of it, that I then see on the same phone with which I took the original picture. Times they are a-changin’…

P.S. In case it is unclear, I’m not upset, I’m just amused and amazed.

EDIT: Wait, I got it! A more appropriate classification for this: not fan art, but a fan retake.


What are your thoughts about all this?
What do you think is going on between these 2?

I have this strange feeling that if this pairing happens then it could be an excuse just so we could forgive Mako and Korra after what they did to Bolin, and when Bolin falls for this Eska character and he would be happy then we all forget about the douche acts they did on him.

I'm just here doubting and thinking about book 2, and I don't feel like watching it. But sadly the only positives on this show is ONLY the amazing animation. Since I saw the dark spirit it's possible this book will be a lot more improved than the last one. The animation is what keeps me on the lookout for this show, making me want to watch it.

There are some comments on how people ship or don't these two together, but I think opposites attract. So either Eska will fall for Bolin but Bolin wouldn't feel the same way or vice versa.

No, relax thy Mako hate. He's a teenager, that kind of stuff happens. Did you seriously not encounter that sort of drama in high school? It happens ALL the time, petty, teenage love triangles. Cut the guy some slack, it was stupid but cut him some slack. I'm sure Asami will find a more fitting dude, though they looked great together.

Encounter that kind of drama? Yes, though I stayed the hell away from it. Cut him some slack? No. Being a teenager doesn't excuse, but my hate has little to do with the drama that goes on with love triangles. Yes he treats Asami and Korra like they're nothing more than playthings, but the real reason why I dislike him so is how he treats everyone else, especially Bolin.

:iconyourmom10:
yourmom10 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013
Besides the point. I didn't say it excused it. But saying he should be alone for the rest of his life is about the stupidest thing I've heard from a Mako hater so far. I'd say just get over that fiasco. Shit happens. He did not treat them like playthings, he was confused. I'm no excusing the stupidity of that, it's a dick move, but he didn't treat them like playthings -- relax.

And how does he treat everyone else? Because he's not the most friendly person? God forbid someone's different. How he treats Bolin, do you have any brothers close in age to you? Mako's the same guy that linked up with a gang to keep him and his brother afloat, he raised Bolin as best he could. Please enlighten me on how terrible a person Mako is.

I don't think they're in the South Pole at all. If you look at the buildings, it is of the same construction as Republic City. I think the cousins and other relatives are visiting Korra and Bolin has been instructed to giving them a tour of the place.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this as of yet.. until i see some episodes im not budging even though i think they are pretty much shoving it in our faces that there is gonna be a thing between these two.. I think it could be very adorable i would rather see bolin being all lovey dovey with someone than mako because in all fairness we all know he doesnt seem to be down with the romance with all the cock ups he had with asami >:/ and i think bolin could be the sweet charming boyfriend type who will bring a smile to everyone's day :)

I gotta say from this picture eska looks a lot prettier and less creepy than she did in the model sheets we got during comic con last year. I'd like to think shes going to be just a shy, misunderstood character and just gives off a creepy vibe due to being more in tune with the spiritual world like her father who's going to be korra's spiritual mentor next season.

I'm very interested to see what happens between these two even though I'm hung up on Borra even now.. :(

A lot of fellow Borra shippers are hoping Korra may get jealous of Bolin's new relationship and wonder where she went wrong but it probably won't happen it has been said that there is going to be a lot more romantic drama in book 2 but i think its gonna focus more on korra and makos rocky relationship that frankly i cbf to watch..

But overall im still very excited for book 2 and can't wait to see what they have in store for us..

I'm a Borra shipper (just look at my icon), but if Bolin can't have Korra in canon, at least he can be with her cousin. :XD: Maybe it'll work out. I'm trying to keep an open mind about it.

If Eska and Bolin do get together, then good because that means Bolin will be over Korra if he hasn't already. ( I find Bosami and Boleska more interesting than Borra, especially since Korra gets on my nerves sometimes.)

It looks like the fan made Eska say "Bolin". It's amazing that they did that!! As soon as I saw the twins I had a strong feeling that they to do an "opposites attract" kind of relationship. I don't think she's a Mai clone. To me she seems spiritual and uppity (for being the northern water tribe princess) and he's goofy and down to earth.
