Official Episode Discussion S2 #20 "The Legend of Kuro Kabuto"


Alright, the saga continues!

So, Karai knows the truth about Splinter being her true father - and the one she Thought was her father has locked her into a prison cell somewhere in his skyscraper headquarters.

Meanwhile, something strange is going on in the building. Things are moving, vanishing... Imagine Shredder's surprise, when his helmet suddenly disappears! No longer able to hide his face, we'll finally see his true face, for all the distortion, old scars and anger that he holds inside from so many years of resentment and a need for revenge.

Kuro Kabuto... his helmet has a special name? is there some sort of special story behind it? Why would someone want it so badly as to risk stealing it from Shredder?

We've got some new questions now, so make up your own theories, and as always...

STAY TUNED!

I'm going to use Amazon's site this time. I'm curious about the name of this ep, though. Why is it called Kuro Kabuto? At first I thought that maybe it was a name, but since Shredder's helmet gets stolen this ep, I guess it means "Dark Helmet"? Who knows, either way, I'm looking forward to this episode.

The Legend of the Kuro Kabuto

SPOILERS COMMENTARY FOLLOW

Spoiler:
UH-OH we start off strong with the Russian arms dealer. He has excalibur, whoa. OH he wants Shredder's helmet, iiiiiiinteresting. He also has a rhino in a glass display FORESHADOWING!
He hires Bebop, err, Anton Zeck (master thief) to do it! Awesome. And he's responsible for his missing eye, so they are already strongly connected.
Pizza time. Peperoni again?
Mikey using the smoke eggs... again
We are getting a *LOT* of Dominic as Leo in this ep, that's for sure.
Shredder looking more hideous than I remember... whoa
Trying to convince Karai that he was trying to do the "right" thing... uh-hu. Well, I'd love to hear his side of the story.
Shredder hides his helmet under his throne like that? He must really value the thing.
Whoa Bebop's fighting style is wicked.
Backstory on the helmet, awesome.
Baxterfly! Tiger Claw! Rahzar! Fishface! All four on the job.
"Don't get mad at me... you know you look nasty!" Bwahahahaha.
Buzzkill? Will that be Baxter's mutated name now?
Diaper on Leo's head... I thought that was Donnie's lot in life. ("A-wrapa this diap-a around-a ya face-a")
"Why am I smelling... the baby poops?" oh lawdy
Oh crap... what a twist at the end!



Very good episode by my accounting. Great new character with Anton, strong action even featuring 4 on 4 at one point, some of the better funny moments we've had this season, even the sound effects felt above average (tiger claw making cat sounds when being hit :p)

Despite this being somewhat of a Leo-centric episode that also features a voice fill-in for Leo, I didn't find it impacted the quality at all. Dominic's voice, while different, fits the character to me.

My rating: A

SPOILER IMAGES:

Spoiler:

Rhino clearly displayed. What's on the opposite site? Warthog?

Anton Zeck's calling card

"The clan's founder himself, the dreaded Koga Takuza was said to be the greatest ninja in the history of Japan. His skill with a blade was greater than any Samurai. Takuza laid waste to warriors and rulers alike. He stole the sacred totems of his defeated enemies and fused them into an alloy greater than steel! He himself forged the Kabuto, and it has survived undamaged to this day. I am sworn to protect it with my life. You will find it and bring it to me. Understand!?"

Spoiler:

Great Episode but the ending was too abrupt. That and Leo's voice dragged this episode down but everything else was great!

Finally got another Turtles Vs. Shredder fight and it did not dissapoint. Shredder is still too strong for the Turtles and I like how Leo stepped up to him. Bebop & Rocksteady are already turning out to be fantastic villains!

My favourite bit was the conversation between Rahzar and Tiger Claw, just couldn't stop laughing!

Also, the world-building was very strong in this episode. Loved the Kuro Kabuto flashback, brings back the whole 'ninja' feel of the show!

Overall, very good episode with an extremely abrupt ending - (8.7/10)

What a perfect debut episode of B&R!

I like that they are serious in what they are doing and yet being able to provide comic relief

B: Wow to the wow!

R: I'm going to pop your head like blueberry!

Baxter lost his voice in this episode. He just buzzes around

I haven't seen the episode yet, about to, but since this issue bothers me quite a bit, can someone tell me how different and obvious it is that Dominica voicing?

It's all a matter of how much of an ear you have. It's almost a learned thing.

I felt it was slightly more noticeable in this episode than in Pizza Face, but all in all, it's still similar enough that it's not a big disturbance.

Saw it. Overall, good episode. Not as good as the last one, in my opinion, but better than some of the last few: Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman, Mazes and Mutants, and Newtralized.

However, one thing...
Spoiler:
why couldn't Baxter speak? I was confused. Was Phil Lamar not available at episode or something?

Liking the ep so far. Bebop is basically Fatal Fury's Duck King with sci if tech. I hope he can still toss his laser Mohawks as a mutant.

Honestly bebop is a huuuuuuge change in character compare to just rocksteady being Russian.
