Dude, what was the point of Mako and Asami even being together in the first place? Why couldn’t she have been introduced as an independent character outside of a relationship? Seriously, their relationship had no point except to provide forced drama for a really boring and irritating love triangle.
Seriously though. Instead of spending 85% of her screentime making kissy faces and then sad faces at Mako they could have explored her relationship with her father and what it was like to join a group of benders in a fight against an anti-bender revolution.
Yup. Their relationship was totally pointless. They could have done other things with her story. It’s not like she had to be Mako’s girlfriend in order for her father to sponsor their pro-bending team. They could have just as easily been friends as well.
