How excited are you for Rise of the TMNT

What is your level of excitement for the upcoming cartoon?

While I'm not too crazy about the designs, I admit that I warmed up to some of them. I like that they're going for something that's never been done before (as far as I know). Especially the different species aspect. I normally don't like the "multiple dimensions" excuse because my stance on the PD films still stands that it has to work and be interesting. My only concerns are with the "lighter and more comedic" tone (due to modern cartoons' comedy), the 11-minute length of episodes, and how they'll handle Leo in the beginning.

I'm cautiously optimistic at best. It's more of a just wait and see feeling.

On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being dread and 10 being over the moon, I'd say I'm maybe a 6 or a 7.

I'm not chomping at the bit, but I am very curious to see what all the negative fuss is about.

I think you could just go and read the countless other threads about this show.

Regardless, I don't expect much. There's really only two things I expect, that we get more than twelve episodes before a mid-season hiatus, and that there isn't more than one or two mid-season hiatuses. Those are the two problems I believe they're actively trying to fix from the previous show. Beyond that I don't really care what they'll do, from what I get it's just intended to be another merch-driven show with quality being a secondary priority. I'll watch it if turns out to be entertaining or have nothing else to spend my time on, otherwise I'm just going to drop it. It'll probably only last a few seasons anyway, then they'll move on to the next version, it's just how these things go.

I don't need a glorified toy commercial to get my TMNT fix. IDW is still printing new material, as well as re-printing stuff I haven't read before. There's just no reason to care about this show when a re-print of the Image series is coming out. Maybe it would be a different story if it was the ONLY new TMNT thing coming out but that's not the case.

I'm not so much as excited but curious, admittedly I don't like a lot of stuff from the information that was given to us but I'm at least going to give it a try

I'm very excited to be honest.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

The magic/underworld city theme: 5
April: 6
Splinter: 2
Species variation: 4
Weapon changes: 5 - spared some by Leo still at least wielding a sword of some design. (But odachi my ass, looks a little more European or something else.)
Role change: 2; 4 if temporary.
Changes to who Leo is as a person: -1 (or lower... but don't want to look like a "whiner" that will just get bitched at for daring to not like or accept a thing)

All over I'll give the excitement level right now a 4.

Glaring at the makers, but still watching and waiting to see what happens...

At this point it's budding curiosity. I just want to see a trailer or the first episode just to get the "feel" of the show and see what it's like. I'm not keen on the changes they made so far but who knows, the show might surprise us and turn out really good.

It's too early to say.

I'm somewhat optimistic.

I'm hoping that this show doesn't fail.

I'm dangerously optimistic and excited for this show.

Maybe it's the return to 2D animation, or maybe it's all the little twists the show will have, but I'm 9/10 excited.

I find the comics a bit expensive (for me to be able to get them all) so cartoons and movies (and the ocassional game) are my main source of Turtles fix.

I'm not crazy about the designs, but they'll grow on me. (Especially after the train wreck that was the Bay Turtles movies which was rock bottom for me).

5 for now.
I used to be excited, but not as much as before.
11 minutes? Leo not the oldest? Making Raphael "start out" as the leader for no particular reason? yeah just no.

0 out of 10. Would prefer the 2012 series be continuing.

Probably 8. Maybe I’ll feel different after seeing a trailer or preview. I think it looks fun. I like the colorful and cartoonish tone.

11 minutes does not bother me at all. There’s some really good cartoons with that format.

The super hiatuses were a huge problem. It didn’t just happen with the turtles either. I have no idea what the logical is behind that garbage.

Nothing can survive the will to stay alive, cause if you try, you can do anything.

If it looked more like PApagreg's signature, I would be.
That's slick man.

This would have been great.

During the early episodes, there are usually less breaks as the producers test how well the series work.
Because of continuity and timeline errors, I've given up writing fanfiction based on the 1987-1996 animated television series. Instead, I'm trying to reboot the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story, something many other fanfiction writers already do:

Hopefully, stories will later appear at

Curious yes, excited, no. Don't forget this is gonna be even lighter and more childish in tone than the 2012 series divided into 11 minute episodes. Most of you are gearing up for the next big epic saga where there won't be.

Even the figures look like crap. I wonder where I'll even get them if they were cool once Toys R Us is 100% gone.
"I was down with TMNT once, but then they changed what TMNT was. Now what I was down with is no longer TMNT and what TMNT now is seems weird and scary. And it'll happen to YOU."

Based on what? Haven't seen even one person give that impression.
