TEN QUESTIONS ABOUT TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!

matsutzu:

Feel free to reblog this and add your opinions!

1.) Favorite Incarnation of the Ninja Turtles (1987 series, the movies, 2003, 2012, etc)?
2.) Favorite Character?
3.) Favorite Turtle?
4.) Favorite Villain?
5.) Least Favorite incarnation of the TMNT?
6.) Have you read the original Mirage comics?
7.) Do you collect TMNT merchandise?
8.) What is your favorite TMNT movie?
9.) How old were you when you first discovered TMNT?
10.) What are your opinions of the 2014 Paramount Movie (thus far)?

1.) My favorite TMNT incarnation is the 1987 Cartoon. Not only is it the version I grew up with, I generally enjoyed the lighthearted tone mixed with action, and the overall character design ethic :) It also has one of the best voice casts, in my opinion!


2.) Master Splinter :) He balances being a father and trainer well somehow. I think we’d all love a dad like Splinter.


3.) Leonardo, by a very small amount. Hes the responsible leader, and I find that an interesting character. He’s the glue that keeps the team together, as to say. It’s tough for me to choose between him and Donatello.


4.) I am cheating here, I have two— Rocksteady and Bebop. Come on, you have to always have them as a pair.


5.) Controversial Opinion: The 2012 series is my least favorite. I do not say this as an ill-formed opinion— I watched the complete first season and part of the second before I stopped watching the show.  I’m glad that it brought new fans to the franchise, and it has it’s own strengths, but I didn’t like where storyline was going overall.


6.) I own a few of the original comics,and was able to read many of the earliest issues. I can say I enjoy it :)


7.) I do! I have the majority of the original toyline. I’m pretty much only missing some of the alternate versions of the turtles, Shogun Shoate and Shogun Triceraton. Beyond those, I also have many of the new TMNT movie figures and a lot miscellaneous stuff that was based on the ‘87 show.


8.) The first one! I really liked how successfully it blended the original comic books with the ‘87 toon.


9.) I discovered it around the time that the first cartoon came out, so I was mmmm… about seven years old!  I’m practically a TMNT fan for life XD I remember seeing the cartoon’s first episode, THEN getting the toys. Leonardo was my first figure.


10.) I am excited and wary at the same time. Like with any version of the TMNT, I try my best to withold judgement until I see it. I was very turned off by the designs of the turtles at first. However, I will definitley see the movie before forming my final opinion. To be honest.. I am looking forward to it :D

Shredder and Krang Classic Figures were shown at San Diego Comic Con! Admittedly I am slightly bummed because an ‘87 inspired Master Splinter was originally said to be part of this wave last year, but he has been replaced by Krang. However, both Krang and Shredder look good so far :D

For those who like the 2012 toon toys too, check out the source video :)

Awww thank you! This is *sorta* true! Tonight I am not terribly sad (at least, not yet) but I am sort of under the weather and really tired XD It has been a very rough past several months on me emotionally and physically.

Thanks for the ehugs, it means a lot~

I wanna know what people assume about me because of my tumblr.

Put an assumption in my ask. I’ll confirm or dispute it. I’m not gonna be mean or anything, I’m just very interested.

I thought I’d write out everything I am experiencing now. If a post about my health makes you feel uncomfortable, please feel free to skip this! If you use tumblrsavior, i try to tag most personal posts as ‘mat text’ ;)

Tonight I am very ill, with the majority of my symptoms hitting me very hard. It’s the same as usual— bleeding, abdominal pains, chest pains, nausea, shortness of breath and lightheartedness. I’m also occasionally passing kidney or bladder stones (I am not sure which), which accounts for most of my physical pain tonight.

I have indeed seen doctors, but outside of hiatal hernia, no prognosis has stuck. I’ve gone through many physical examinations and tests, but nothing has solved the problem,and I am not closer to determining what it is.

I am under a severe amount of stress right now. The thing is, I want to be more self-reliant— most people I know are able to distance themselves from other people when they are sick. It seems to be the more normal thing. However, I usually really want someone by my side when I am ill, and I become specifically clingy. I feel very bad about this.

I care very much about my friends, but in a way I think I expect way too *much* of friends in this. Most friends don’t come over when you are ill to sit with you, hold you, and distract you with a game or movie. However, in a silly way, that’s what I WANT. I don’t want a romantic relationship at this time (I have a whole bunch of attraction/sexuality issues I should post about another time, that I have been reluctant to talk about) but I instead seem to want comfort from friends with this health thing that may seem outside the duties of friendship to other people! That is my failing, not anyone else’s. It has, however, caused people to accuse me of being attention seeking, and, in severe cases, accuse me of making up my illness.

To all that read through this, thank you. I just REALLY needed to get my thoughts out, and I am finally slightly calmer than I was this morning to be able to write this.. even if my health only got worse through the day.

I’ve privated the personal posts from this morning, so they don’t clog everyone’s dash. Rest assured I did not delete them

Thank you to both sethblizzard and criminalcrow for trying to help me.
