I figured, why not? ^_^ I don't think he has one, so I'll slide this in before sleeping. He's made quite the impression to fangirls fans, and I think we can all talk about our new main resident firebender! For instance:

  • His personality
  • His past
  • His interaction with possible other characters
  • His interaction with characters we have now
  • All the Aladdin, brooding Mako looking out window, etc., memes. (j/k)
  • His bending skills
  • Your first impressions
  • What they'll do with his character along the road

So what did you all think about him, guys? Everything you wanted, everything you not wanted, everything you wanted but better?~

He's everything I want in a guy.

I'll even take his mastery in Jerkbending.

He's perfect! (At least for Korra, I think.)

Everything i wanted for his character. I'm glad there is some tension between him and Korra to begin with, wouldn't be as interesting if the group were all ~instant bffs~
sooo looking forward to Mako and Bolin's backstory....one of the main things i'm looking forward to actually.

(We're not gonna make a thread for every single character are we?)

Anyway, Mako is just awesome! I know he's a jerk in the second episode, but I know he comes around! I can't wait to see more of his character!

He is my new favorite character after Tenzin. I was so impressed how he single handedly took down the platypus bears; I don't blame Korra for being starstruck Wink

I don't think he is angsty at all.. just very serious and dedicated in what he does.

hmm, i think the angsty-feel for me is how much his personality differs from bolin. bolin's so light-hearted and mako is yes, serious and dedicated that i think there's a back story about this, how he got to be a lot more mature than bolin
i just like angst tho Tongue

Haha I'm actually waiting for that too- I guess we'll get one maybe after a few more episodes so we have more material to work with  Wink

I'm really excited for Mako and Bolin's livin-on-the-streets backstory to be fleshed out and how I think Mako will be such a foil to Korra's background and personality. My hope is that at first they will butt heads but that she will come to understand why he acts the way he does- because of all the responsibilities he bears and how his past hardships have shaped him. I'm looking forward to many angsty conversations in the future...

This. Now Zuko... Zuko was angsty. Mako's not. He's just a serious guy. He's not as light-hearted or fun/goofy like his brother is. I love Mako! Not as much as Bolin, but I still really like him. I also like the fact that he's so hot. Can't wait to see more of his character!

^^LOL, I love that facepalm. xD

^Methinks he's going to be doing a lot of that in this series.

I agree though-it's not that Mako's angsty and self-pitying like Zuko was- he's just had a reason to be more serious and concentrated on what he's doing. He thinks before he acts and is, in a lot of ways, the opposite of what many people expect a firebender to be like- aggressive and hot-headed. If anything, I find that kind of refreshing, especially since I feel like that makes him a relatable character. From the vibes I'm getting from him so far, it seems like he could be pretty hard on himself and determined to not make any mistakes and keep things planned and calculated-which is where the "chaotic" part with Korra comes in I guess...



This shot is so beautiful...HE is so beautiful  Grin

Words cannot fully describe how I feel about Mako. Seriously. I've had a crush on him since we first saw him all the way back at that SDCC panel, and those feelings only multiplied after seeing him in the show. He's everything I imagined him to be and more. He is perfect X3

I can't wait to see more of him and Bolin's interactions together. He seems like the type to be somewhat overtly overprotective of his younger brother, despite his overall aloofness Cheesy

Agreed. It's about time we get a character who can be good looking and NOT full of angst. Wink

(We're not gonna make a thread for every single character are we?)

I certainly hope not. With Mako having his own thread now (for DISCUSSION people, not for fanclub-style squeeing), I think we're all set on major characters having their own threads.

If I see this thread and the Bolin thread becoming more of a squeefest than a discussion thread, then I'll be merging them into a single thread to talk about the brothers.

Same here! I didn't mind Zuko's angsty-ness because it fit for his story and his character, but I definitely like the fact that Mako isn't angsty. A guy can be brooding and good-looking without being angsty, and Mako is proof of that Grin

In fact, my sis and I were comparing his character to Zuko's the other day. In the instance of when Korra joined the Fire Ferrets and was messing up, Mako just shook his head and moaned while Zuko probably would've gotten more angry at her. He's just an all-around more aloof guy, which I definitely prefer over angsty xP

Training and learning I would imagine. I have a feeling when they were kids, they got bullied around a lot from the other street kids and in order to protect himself and his brother, Mako started to practise his bending from a very young age. Toza being a waterbender, I doubt he taught him those moves.. maybe he learnt by watching other firebending pro benders in action?

I love Mako. He has an interesting character and is on the whole, far more likeable than Zuko. Less whiney, less angsty and he admits his mistakes.

He is also wonderfully attractive, which also contributes to my admiration of him.

On the streets Cool

I like Mako so far. His jerkish nature took me a little by surprise in the same way that Korra's goofy nature caught a lot of people by surprise.

Everyone stop assuming things!
