I'm not going to lie for a second, this show is really silly and has grown on me.
I laughed out loud at Leo walking into the pole today wearing two eyepatches.
I love the art style and the animation flows so wonderfully.
My only gripes now are Splinter being a total jerk to the boys and that each episode is way too short.

Well the skeleton pirate makes sense now...but the all-skin sibling was...interesting. For a moment I thought it might have been that they were once one person having become two, over some kind of inner conflict or whatever. (Might have made for an interesting plot later trying to remedy that.)

Nice to actually see a sorta Leo centric one, just wish he'd done it alone instead of being played like a halfwit that can't figure his way through it and actually learn something about this mystic place (and himself) that I had hoped we'd finally learn a little more about beyond "has a pirate area." Was a bit too much the bone guy's ep with Leo tagging along.

I kinda figured his brothers were actually off someplace nice though. Just wish it had been longer, giving them time to actually find each other rather than just falling back through another portal at random.

But wow, they did not give thought for even a second over Leo possibly freaking out at them going missing. This bunch of Turtles, I dunno. lol



Honestly, my only real takeaway from this one is that I'd totally buy a Pirate Leo figure, IF they do it right.

I wonder how Raph, Donnie, and Mikey handled being in Tahiti without being seen by humans.

Leo clearly still has no idea how the sword works.

like I said in another thread. Splinter is a lazy fat ass and a negligent father. Its such a shame we go from the amazing Hoon Lee Splinter to this abomination.

Ok so I finally saw the episode, I loved Leo's characterization in it but like what was said previously wish it was more Leo focused I was really hoping for more leader like abilities to be shown but he did pretty good either way and we did see some. He needs more confidence poor Leo I mean he has all the capabilities of being leader, could be as smart as Donnie and an even better leader than Raph he just doesn't see it yet here's hoping for the season final

Raphenstein's paper monster.

"Eh" on the start and end of it... middle was pretty decent. But damn that foot recruit girl is (still) annoying. Geezus, calm down.

Torn on whether or not this reformed paper ninja will even show up again though. (Pun only intended after realization of said pun.) It feels like it should have a point of existing, but on the other hand it feels random and weird enough to be a one-off thing...

Not sure, but I don't believe we've seen any with the mismatched coloration? Seems like Raph just kind of slapped one together from the remnants of possibly more than one.

But in that case, I guess the paper itself is magic or remains magic? If they can come back to life and become sentient, then maybe the Turtles should feel bad about turning them into confetti. lol

Saw Sparing partner, it was ok. Is it me or does that new female ninja have the same kind of name as Karai? Could she be a new version of that character? She fights with a sword too. It was neat seeing Leo fight on pretty much equal grounds as her. Maybe next time he will actually defeat her, they could end up being rivals in the future but maybe I'm thinking too much into this. I find the paper thing weird, it's like Raph could just make one from scratch and just call him buddy yet it's like it has feelings :/

Next weeks episode man, looks so boss.

What do you mean by "same kind of name"? They've only referred to her as Recruit.

I once again wish this episode was the entire half hour because I enjoyed it but would have enjoyed it more had it lasted longer.
I would totally buy a figure of the Origami Monster.
