TMNT Summer Short #1 Review

Ok so I don’t normally do this but I just had to do it fot this.

So the first Summer Short just dropped and it’s called called “"Teenaged Mecha Ninja Turtles”.

Yup you read that right.

Ok so it takes place in the future and it’s all standard fare. The Turtles are giant robots.

It’s pretty standards TMNT fare, they don’t work well as a team and they learn to do so at the end. Normal stuff.

That is until the last minute.

We see that they’re suits! And they’re controlled by…

This adorable kid called Kusana…

Basque (a POC! Played by Cyborg! That Cyborg!)

And Frida! Look at that diversity!

Not only that…

Mikey’s the Sensei! How fucking cool is that???

Overall this was a giant AU and I loved it.

season 1 April: bubbly, well-meaning, tries her best, girl-next-door type friend, snarky but nice.

season 5 April: tired, anger issues, trauma doesn’t exist unless she lets it, zero fucks left to give, “look it was either i stab someone or start crying. i didn’t have much choice.”

TMNT Season 1: Michelangelo saves his brothers from being eaten alive by giant mutant wasps. Nobody says thank you.

TMNT Season 5: Michelangelo leaps over perilous cliffs and dodges fire balls in order to retrieve, repair, and wield an ancient esoteric seal that controls the powers of an invulnerable hell demon. Despite the seal being allegedly impossible to fix and requiring vast knowledge to wield Michelangelo succeeds in his mission, banishing a god-tier demodragon back to the underworld and putting an end to Hell’s invasion of New York City. Nobody says thank you.
