Please, I ask you all to participate in this day celebrating the awesome character that is Azula! If you can make graphics, gifs, art or anything that shows your love for her tag it as “Azula” and “Azula Appreciation Day”. It will just be a day where you just blog about Azula and dedicate one day to her. So if you are interested, let me know. :) It would be awesome if you could reblog this and get the word out!
AZULA WATER YOU DOING
Doing the macarena.. what else did you think she was doing?
I did that the other day. seriously.
omg. everyone in avatar are like awesome dancers. it’s unfair.
I think they all had a bit to much to drink that day.
She probably gets it from Zuzu
I’m rewatching Avatar: the Last Airbender from the beginning
And one of the links I’m using is from Nick.com, where they put in fun facts about the characters and the voice actors and stuff into the episode
I’m watching “The Warriors of Kyoshi,” and there’s this scene where Zuko goes, “nice try, Avatar, but these little girls can’t save you!”
And this is the fun fact the writers put in:
10 December, 1933 - 21 July, 2006
Born in Japan, Mako Iwamatsu moved to the United States following the Second World War. He joined the military during the 1950s and it was around that time that he discovered his love for the theatre.
Mako had a long and successful career in the entertainment industry. He was featured in several episodes of M*A*S*H, he played the role of Akiro The Wizard in Conan the Barbarian, and he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Po-Han in The Sand Pebbles.
The average age of Tumblrs being what it is, I think most would be surprised to learn of Mako’s presence throughout their childhood. Mako did voice work as “The Narrator” in several episodes of Dexter’s Laboratory, as Aku in Samurai Jack, as Uncle Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and as Master Splinter in the 2007 animated film TMNT (the film was released after his death).
Mako made several one-time appearances in many television programs throughout his career. No matter how small the part, however, he always found a way to breathe life, character, and heart into every performance.
Because Mako passed away in 2006 (shortly after recording season two of A:TLA), he was unable to finish his work as the lovable Uncle Iroh. However, the show’s creators honoured Mako’s contributions by naming a character in Legend of Korra after him.
