A is for Aang
Aunt Wu: (telling Aang's fortune) "You will be involved in a great battle, an awesome conflict between the forces of good and evil! A battle whose outcome will determine the fate of the whole world!"
Aang: "Yeah yeah, I knew that already. But does it say anything about a girl?"
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favourite anime shows, and the colourful characters are what make it so wonderful. Aang is the Avatar, the only person in the land able to bend all four elements, and the one who is supposed to stop the war started by the Fire Nation.
Despite the giant weight on his shoulders, Aang is still a goofy kid, which is what I enjoyed about him. He is a master at air bending and has to save the land, but he still just wants to have fun. The romantic relationship he keeps trying to have with Katara is also pretty cute. You can't help but love the guy, and root for him as he tries to master the other three elements!
