    I classified this as tearjerker because it brought a tear to my eye to see the orginal turtles as knew and loved them back on my screen! I think half of my elation was the fact that I was seeing my turtles again restored to the orginal way they where with the same tone and animation style, that I haven't seen before.



    Splinter was back to be being commanding and even a bit insolent as well, which I thought was pretty awsome considering how self important the tribunal members seemed. And speaking of the tribunal this was really the first time I was able to get to see them. They where...interesting. I liked their character designs and their powers, and how they each represented a skill/disipline of ninjitsu. You get to see the tribunal a bit more and learn more of their nuances, but over-all they seem pretty cool. I did however get a little annoyed with their constant insults of how pathatic the turtles and the other acolytes where and how they "don't have any clue about how great the evil is they are facing--you're worthless". So I was rather happy that Splinter came in unanounced and was like "that is because you haven't told them anything, you jerks". And ooh, you could tell Splinter wasn't happy with the tribunal taking his sons, and he didn't care if they knew it. The fact that Splinter was like "screw you! Handle it your self--I'm taking my kids home", when the ancient one (Yoshi's father) was all scared and sheepish about being there, said alot about how intimidating the tribunal are. And Splinter didn't care! Go Splinter! I think my favorite part was the fire demon part. The Fire demon cat was pretty good and it did give a feel of "holy crap how are we goinjg to fight this thing", sort of feel even if it was just a dream sequence. And I know that many fans frowned on the "every one is dead and we lost, and then, BAM it only a psychic dream" is a cliche for this series since it has been done before and at this point is probably seen as a cop out, but I actually didn't think it was lame, and I think it added some dramatic emphasis on what the turtles might be up against. You just got at that point the turtles and the acolytes finnaly grasped on what exactly they may be up against, that if just a subdorant of this demon Shredder is so powerful and frightening, than the threat this tengue Shredder is very real.moreless

    • Con: Perception is not always truth. What you think you know, about this world, about yourselfs, even about reality itself, all of this will be challenged.

    • Con: Like the serpent eating it's own tail, as one journey ends another begins. But now after centuries of vigilance we off the Ninja Tribunal see the journey's end with no new beginning, the end of all things is coming. And so we prepare for battle. The tribunal has chosen eight acolytes, eight warriors from around the globe each of different disciplines and skills, each who have shown potential, A spark that now must be fanned into a flame, a flame to combat the Heralds now free to fulfill their hideous mission, the summoning of the one we have feared all these years. Eight acolytes, if they fall before the upcoming darkness, so shall we all.
