When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles acquire Mutastones from Crys-Mu, the spirit of light, they acquire the ability to enhance themselves into Super Turtles for a duration of three minutes. Meanwhile, the evil Shredder and his minions Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon the Dark Mutastone, which transforms them into Devil Shredder, Supermutant Bebop and Supermutant Rocksteady, respectively. But the Turtles have one more trick up their shells: all four of them can combine into their ultimate form—Turtle Saint.

Art: For a show thats only from 1996 it looks decidedly crappy. It looks identical to the original 1987, which makes sense considering it ...

If you have a friend who hates anime, then be sure to advise/ make him watch this anime title.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the quintessence of all the takeaways of anime haters. There's everything they like to talk about here

there are even a couple of hypersexualized fairies, just like we like

I generally like the animation of the 90s, and there is a kind of vibe of cheap titles of the 90s, someone may like it, but I ...
