Feckin Microsoft doesn't even have When Worlds Collide.

I'm never buying a season pass for a tv show again. Amazon and Sony pulled this same kind of garbage but at I think the longest they ever took was 5 days.

Awesome episode, so intense.

Wow that certainly was a cliffhanger.

It was weird that the turtles didn't appear until 9 minutes of the episode though but it was great that Usagi had lots of focus.

I have a feeling the turtles are still under Jei's spell, coming out of there brainwashing by getting knocked out, seemed too easy.

Oh man, this is even better than I expected, & I say that having had very high hopes. You can really tell how much love & respect for Stan's work & all that inspired it went into this. Did I detect an air of homage in the musical cues, to that of an older TMNT film? Kintaro is really funny. It's great how he's written to be an annoying character, yet doesn't annoy the viewer. Not so easy to pull off (as evidenced via Timmy). Stellar visuals & an awesome take on Usagi. Can't wait for the rest.

It is such a work of art, this series. Bittersweet how amazing the season is. Makes me doubly sad it's at its end. But they are going out on a high note, no doubt.

I thought it was a great episode, its finally great to see Usagi in full 3D CGI glory, The action was also good, they should do an Usagi Yojimbo series in this style.

It looked like Mikey killed 3 evil samurai solders during the horse chase scene

The part where Usagi wandered around the decimated village, it gave me Samurai Jack vibes.

I almost thought that Jei was voiced by John DiMaggio.

Looks like that bear will think that the Turtles and Usagi are dead.

it was really awesome to see "written by Stan Sakai" in the opening credits.

i can tell Stan Sakai really had a lot of respect for Akira Kurosawa's film 'Yojimbo', having named Usagi's Lord - 'Lord Mifune' after Toshiro Mifune the actor who stared in the film.

Obviously survive,

Well probably except the horses.

I noticed a really big tree when they fell, so they probably will manage to get to it to save themselves.

Probably my favorite episode to date that wasn't a season ending episode. Usagi looks so awesome, love his voice as well. I was afraid I was going to hate Kintaro but he's pretty dang funny, really excited for the next episode.

Same here. This episode was excellent. The direction was very good, all the characters were written very well, the action scenes were particular standouts. The dialogue felt a bit off at times, but most of the time they did a good job. The visual storytelling was very good, something I didn't expect from this show, especially this late in.

I don't really have much else to say. It was a very very good episode, easily the best of the season thus far, and I'm interested to see what happens in the next two.

That was an Usagi story alright... Not really sure what to say, it's more or less what I expected.

Enjoyed it a lot, but Kintaro is strangely really annoying to me and I usually don't mind underage child characters in cartoons. I think it must be the VA, he his voice gets really high pitched and squeaky at times. Eh, oh well, it's a minor complaint. Bit disappointing.

I love this portrayal of Usagi, his voice is deeper than expected though. He seems a lot older and more competent than the usual Usagi. Really liked Jei too, although it's weird to me this is his and Usagi's first meeting. Jei also doesn't take the little girl with him like in the comics. I also loved the first 10 or so minutes of the episode had no Turtles at all, it was great to immediately cut to Usagi.

Lastly the horseback riding/battle scene was nice and something we never really got in this show before, unless I'm forgetting something, so it was nice to see.

Loved everything about the episode. Even the little things like the atmosphere and the dinosaurs in Usagi's world all add up.

Can't wait to see what happens next week.

Is the idea of dinosaurs on Miyamoto Usagi's Earth from the Usagi Yojimbo comics?
