what i love about this mikey apart from being the part dude as always is the fact he has a thing for anime in one part of the show well two mikey does a kamen rider pose and he even watches a ultraman lookalike on the recent episode t.c.r.i
really?! that's awesome ciro nieli to me right now is my new favorite artist on nick i love every nick staff like butch hartman and many other's but to me ciro just has this charm compared to some cartoons you see,tmnt (2012) isn't your kid's show it's a show that has alot of love put into it,btw i heard that one of the writer's for super robot monkey team hyperforce go is also writing the new season 2 for tmnt.
Karai is very different from previous versions, but is a really neat character here. She's bringing interesting things out in Leo's character. Rat King's ok but didn't stick with me much in his initial appearance. I won't see TCRI until it's on Hulu.
BTW: Mikey's Okinawan nunchaku become Japanese kusarigama in the new show. Can we get some ninjutsu love?
Yeah, I suppose Mikey's a no-brainer for comedy. (Obvious wordplay is obvious.) But while we S1 writers did play Mikey for silly comedy, we also created a far richer character for him than in previous incarnations. Mikey is genuine and sensitive and caring and isn't afraid to stand up to his brothers if what he feels is right. Fans will love this about him early in S1.
It's much appreciated, Russ! The thing I like the most about this version of TMNT so far is that they act much more like actual teenagers than in previous incarnations. I have always loved TMNT, but they usually come off as ageless cartoon characters or dudes in their 20s. This time, "teenage" actually adds something!
I agree with you on that; they've rarely seemed like teens.
And there's real ninjutsu, too! Josh Sternin, one of the EPs on the show is a student of ninjutsu, so he made it a point to include actual ninjutsu principles and moves into the show. That'll make S1 really stand out. I always loved our trips to the dojo where we'd see Josh's sensei beat the crap out of his chief student. Flip, smack, thud, jointlock! LOLs!
