  • Hey I'm all for masami and all that buut why does Mako give Asami good advice but when korra needs avater adivce HE TURNS THE WOMAN DOWN

    • When did he turn her down?  He tried to give Korra advice, and she bit his head off for it because she wasn't interested in hearing his advice, she just wanted his unconditional support.  So when he tried to give that, she bit his head off because THEN she wanted actual advice rather than mindless obedience.  The third time he offered his input, she accused him of standing against her. 

      Seriously, what do you want from him?  Do you want him to magically have obscure occult knowledge about the deepest workings of the Avatar Spirit and thus act as a spiritual mentor for her even though nothing has ever been shown indicating Mako is in any way spiritual?  Mako himself rather humbly admited that he didn't know just how to help Korra with her Avatar duties, in no small part due to the fact that every time he did try to help, it and she blew up in his face.

    • Mako is the worst character ever.

    • Was this something that happened in the comics? Or are you talking about Book 2?

      If it's Book 2, then I don't know what to tell you. Mako just made the classic guy/new boyfriend mistake of trying to actually solve a woman's problems when all she really wanted was to know that he would support her. He never really figured that out, and so when Korra was "asking for his adive," he refused because he didn't want to get his head bitten off again.

      For his information Mako is the worst character in the series for cheating Asami and Korra by not showing true love to both of them equally.

      He may have good intentions but that doesn't take away the fact that Mako is a bad boyfriend.

      Yeah, ok, that was kinda douche-y move. Forgot about that one.

      I still wouldn't say he was the worst character, just the most poorly written and underutilized.

      In fact Mako is not a good carácter.

    • It seems to me like during the time when Mako was in the role of the love interest, he was neither lovable nor interesting.

      You're right about that!

      Turf Wars Mako is the worst Mako, followed by Book 4 Mako and Ruins of the Empire Mako thus far. Book 2 Mako was genuinely a great character as he was consistently useful, strong, smart, and he tried his best to be a great boyfriend. He was really lovable as his role of a love interest for the woman he loves. Book 4 Mako just turned that love to dislike and then Turf Wars Mako turned that dislike into justified hatred. But Mako can still redeem himself by hurrying up and getting himself a beautiful girlfriend who’s exactly like him (or rather is exactly like him in Books 1 and 2 when it comes to romance). Hopefully God-willing, his new girlfriend will bring him back to his former Books 1 & 2 self. We all love and miss the good old Books 1 & 2 Mako.

      Doubtful? He does always have good intentions. It’s just a fact.


      … but that doesn't take away the fact that Mako is a bad boyfriend.

      No. That is just your biased opinion. Don’t conflate it with actual facts.

      This comment speaks volumes of irrational hatred for books 1 & 2 Mako.

      Who says books 1 & 2 mako was the target? and how can you not agree that Mako was a bad boyfriend? There's a whole list of complaints you could make against him and if I remember correctly king Wu spent an episode poking fun at Mako for some of them.

      Because it’s nonsensical and prejudiced against him out of irrational hatred. If one deliberately ignores all of the countless good actions books 1 & 2 Mako has done for his girlfriend, he/she is viewing the cup half empty rather than half full. A negative mindset blinds them to the truth.

      There's a whole list of complaints you could make against him

      No. There aren’t a lot of complaints against him. There are only a few complaints, but his haters over exaggerate them without any logic or reason.

      and if I remember correctly king Wu spent an episode poking fun at Mako for some of them.
      

      Man, seriously? Prince Wu is a pervert. He is like the Mineta of the series, only more useless and weaker.

      Let's actually go over some of these complaints in case you're not on the same page.

      1. He foiled Korra's plan to engage the northern water tribe blockade.

      2. "Do you want him to magically have obscure knowledge about the deepest workings of the Avatar Spirit..." She literally asked him specifically for advice that time, unlike the other times when he just gave his input without being asked. Like, how do you misconstrue actually asking for advice as wanting support? This isn't obscure occult knowledge, it's common sense.

      3. After breaking up with Korra he lied to her and pretended it never happened.

    • Mako was a bad boyfriend. For example, he revealed Korra's plan to get the United Republic's forces into the Water Tribe Civil War to help the Southern Water Tribe against the North, to President Raiko.


      If Mako truly cared about korra he would've kept his mouth shut and not said a word to that self serving politician. But he choose to betray her, when Korra was trying to save her parents and her home from her power hungry uncle.

      The real problem here was Korra asking for Mako’s advice in the first place when it comes to Avatar related concerns. She shouldn’t ask non-Avatars for this kind of advice. She should only ask Avatars for this advice or powerful and wise spirits. I mean, at that time, she still had Aang, Roku, and other Avatars to ask for advice.


      3. After breaking up with Korra he lied to her and pretended it never happened.

      It was a white lie with good intentions. He had good intentions for her as he wanted her to keep her feeling happy, not angry or sad. He thought telling her the truth would either sadden her or infuriate her. He even confirms he didn’t want to hurt her accidentally again like previously.


      Mako was a bad boyfriend.

      That’s subjective. I mean, if it were objective, then wouldn’t a bad girlfriend by your standards be perfect for Mako? I see similar arguments against Mako used against other fictional love interests such as Yuno Gasai (Future Diary) and a few others.


      For example, he revealed Korra's plan to get the United Republic's forces into the Water Tribe Civil War to help the Southern Water Tribe against the North, to President Raiko.

      I think you people completely overlook the fact that Korra doesn’t need the United Republic’s forces. She is a one-woman army by herself, and if you need proof, just watch how overpowered the women are in A:TLA. Ty Lee and Mai take out an army of earthbenders by themselves… if that’s not overpowered, then I don’t know what is. Let’s not forget the times Aang used his Avatar state. He was able to take out dozens of fire nation ships with hundreds of fire nation soldiers.


      If Mako truly cared about korra he would've kept his mouth shut and not said a word to that self serving politician. But he choose to betray her, when Korra was trying to save her parents and her home from her power hungry uncle.

      Well, Bryke needed to create a reason out of nowhere to break up Mako and Korra so early in book 2. Again, Korra doesn’t need General Iroh’s troops to save her parents and her home. I think you people overlook or ignore how powerful the Avatar state is.

    • Correction Uchiha, in the ATLA episode, the Drill, Mai and Ty Lee only took out a squad of Earthbenders, not an entire army!



      Korra did need the united Forces help, plus her father told her to get them to help the South defeat the Northern Water Tribe, Korra isn't overpowered, neither are the women in ATLA.



      Could have just had them break up another way, maybe Korra catching Mako, kissing another woman, maybe a woman who Mako was partnered with when he joined the police as an idea. Again, Korra did need the United Forces help to defeat her power hungry, crazy Uncle.

    • I don't think it would have been impossible for Korra to use the avatar state to take out the north but the avatar state is always a last resort and the similarity between northern water tribe people and southern water tribe people could be exploited to make it difficult for Korra to figure out who's an enemy and who's not. A situation like that is not one you want to be in when you're in the avatar state and risk destroying the avatar cycle if you die. It would be better suited to stopping an invasion than dealing with an internal conflict because she can't just wipe out the city with a giant wave or something.
