What Do You Think of the Term Boy Band?

  • It's dumb and insulting.
  • It's insulting but those types of groups suck, so who cares?
  • It doesn't make sense but it doesn't bother me.
  • Its funny

I can't believe no one's made a topic about this, or at least one that I've seen. It had some in tears, and it was all over the anime/cartoon/nerd world. For people who watch the Legend of Korra, what did you think about the finale? Are Korra and Asami and item? Do you think it adds up? One of the creators, Brian Konietzko, confirmed that Korrasami was canon. I just feel bad for Mako that both of his girlfriends ended up going for each other.
