Amaya's the best. Seeing an image of her convinced me to give the show a shot. No regrets.
Amaya is easily the best part of the show. I find a lot of the writing regarding the main characters to be disappointing (Callum is a Mary Sue and his character arc is just a worse version of Zuko), but scenes with Amaya always deliver.
Yes, she’s one of my favs. The sun elves are so cool too, and Rayla and Claudia and generally all the female characters are really cool. And one of the characters had lesbian queen elf parents!
didn’t Rayla have two dads as well?
Not only that, but Amaya in the first season wore dark gloves, which made her signs harder to read. After some feedback from the Deaf Community, they changed her design to have white/light gloves, so Deaf people could understand her better :)
That's another thing! The showrunners *listen*.
They actually changed up the animation between season 1 and 2 because they were open to audience criticism and decided to learn from it. Neat stuff! :)
Amaya is amazing. You can look up her signs and they give a lot of depth to her character. Would love to watch this show with my kid if I ever have one
I'm just thankful for no boob armour.
The Walking Dead has recently introduced a deaf character too and now all the characters are learning and using sign. It’s really lovely to see deaf character who aren’t only in shows in relation to their deafness.
Is TWD still good? I kinda lost interest, last I checked Carol blew something up which was kinda cool but something must have distracted me from progressing. Can’t remember details
This show is great, just wondering when the fuck the next season is gonna come out
Its actually been confirmed to have 3 seasons coming up, no release date on any of them yet though
And the sign language is actual sign language, too. It’s a rarity within a rarity if you ask me.
Also she's the coolest person, calling out the tsundere firewarrior while she's their prisoner. What's the line, it was something like: "She likes me but won't admit it yet"
I enjoy the armor and armament designs in that show.
I read signing as singing It’s a great show my siblings love it
The whole show is superb, like so many of the recent toons on Netflix. It's also fluid and unashamed about its natural inclusion of many types of people that has nothing directly to do with the plot. People just are what they are, which is frequently separate from the situation they're thrown into. She-Ra is also amazing for this. Also, both shows are just entertaining and well-written.
Dare her to lift her arm over her head with that pauldron though.
She’d probably just lift the arm that doesn’t have the pauldron.
you wouldn’t expect a deaf person to be a powerful general, but we got something good!
I absolutely love general Amaya, shes such a badass.
It’s made by Aaron Ehasz, what did you expect? Dude helped make ATLA.
That's what I was about to comment. And ATLA has an amazing female blind character!
Amaya is one of the best characters in any media ever, a comment I don't make lightly.
>!You guys remember that one scene where she saves one of her subordinates when he uses sign language to warn her about the elves? Iconic.!<
EDIT: I don't know how spoilers work.
Weird, the spoilers should work
* Learning to change her past prejudices
* Probably gay/bi/pan
* Sister of a queen and not jealous
Amaya is amazing
general amaya is such a bad bitch! i love her, best character in the show.
You can tell the show is trying to recreate the magic of ATLA, and while they don't quite succeed, it's still a pretty fun show
When does season 5 come out?
My brother is 9 and this is his absolute favourite show, I’m so glad he’s seeing good representation.
Wouldn’t a deaf general be a liability?
It's actually an advantage in the show if I remember correctly because she can "speak" to her allies far away and without being heard by ennemies
nobig. boob??? 😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡 TINY. TITEE BAD
why are you guys downvoting this
She's the best character because she has no lines
Just because they’re in a language you don’t speak doesn’t mean she has no lines.
People improperly drawing women, be it manga, anime, cartoons, comics, video games, or graphic novels. Whether that is anatomy or having them way too sexualized, that’s up to you.
