First off, sure, neither of these shows are canon anime - but neither are they pure western, so whatever. I want your input.
I'm looking around for a new show to work on; I'm caught up on most of my old ones. I've known about Avatar for years, but never watched it because I'm not usually a fan of mainstream western shows.
In the past year or so however, I've watched and enjoyed Adventure Time and Futurama, and am becoming more open to trying western stuff. That said, I'm pretty sure both of those are aimed at ages ~18-26, wheras Avatar looks to be more aimed at ~13-18 at best. I don't know much about Korra, but from wiki it seems to have more nuanced characters and story; it might be for older viewers, idk.
Since Korra started, I've been seeing art from these shows everywhere, and iirc they're considered to be among the best quality western shows ever, right?
So: As anime consumers, do you think these shows would be worth my time? I'm considering skipping Avatar entirely and only watching Korra - would I be missing anything important? Do you consider either to be bland / overbearing / dumbed down / pretentious? I'm interested in your thoughts.

What the fuck are you doing?
>The show combined the styles of anime and American cartoons, and relied on the imagery of various East Asian, Inuit, Southeast Asian, South Asian and New World societies.[not in citation given] Due to this style, the series regularly enters the conversation regarding its consideration as an anime work.
worth a shot, whatever, i'll move if no one has anything to say
You're in the wrong board, buddy >>>/co/
Lurk more faggot, Avatar goes on /co/, mods said so years ago don't bother them about it.
I feel physically ill.
Anime isn't defined by style.
No one cares >>>/co/
Shows are defined by who produces them. Avatar and Korra were written, produced and published by a western company, so they are still considered western animation. Even though they are obviously done to 'look' like anime. Hell, the creators outright admitted they made the show to look like anime.
Trying to say Avatar is anime is like trying to say 'The Matrix' is anime.
Fuck off newshit >>>/co/
>he thinks the matrix isn't anime
It's not bad.
