It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the last season of The Legend of Korra, as it seems like just yesterday when the series started. I’ve had nothing but fun and excitement watching her and her friends overcome many difficulties and hardships with humor and more importantly with some awesome action using their bending abilities. But all good things must come to an end, and so here we are with the final thirteen episodes on two Blu-rays discs in The Legend of Korra Book Four: Balance, which is a perfect end to a near perfect show.

After the events of the last season, things pick up a few years later as Korra is still trying to recover from nearly losing all of her powers and the toll it took on her to save the world. As she handles becoming older, wiser and overcoming the strain of getting back into the swing of things, a military force led by Kuvira (voiced by Zelda Williams) who was once an ally of Korra’s, now has her own agenda and has come to stir things up. With the two of them not seeing eye to eye on how to deal with the Earth Nation’s problems, it will take everything Korra and her friends have to rise up one last time to put a stop to Kuvira, her dominating army and anything else that gets in their way.

As with the previous seasons, this last one was awesome and did not disappoint. The story, characters, animation and acting were all spot on and helped to bring a satisfying conclusion to one of the greatest TV shows out there. Thanks to having the pleasure of seeing this entire show unfold in high definition on Blu-ray, I enjoyed watching everything from the beginning to its end with perfect clarity both audio and visual wise.

There’s also plenty of special features to enjoy after the series finale, such as audio commentaries by some of the cast and crew on nine of the episodes. For those who watched the first “puppetbender” extra that has some of the cast as puppet versions of their characters while going behind the scenes of the show, you’ll be happy know there’s a final follow up with “The Legend of Puppetbender Presents The Making of a Legend: The Untold Story Part Il”. The last of the extras is the “Legend of Korra New York Comic-Con Panel” that has the cast and some of the crew such as the creators/writers, producers and such discuss the series with the fans there.

While I hate to see this amazing show come to an end, it does so gracefully and perfectly just as it began. If you’ve seen the rest of it, then picking up The Legend of Korra Book Four: Balance is a no-brainer, as you’ll want to have the conclusion of this great work in your collection. Those who haven’t seen it or have been waiting for all of it to be released, now is your chance to watch one of the greatest TV shows you’ve been missing. I can only hope another series in this bending universe is on the horizon somewhere soon.
