T.M.N.T. in America and in Japan...

Talking about cultural differences, here's what happens when an icon crosses a sea. The Ninja Turtles where created as a parody of Frank Miller's comics in the 80's and as a punk-surf critic ideal. This radical movements that drove USA to the edge in the 80's was way far from the early 90's Japan, that was working hard to be the nation it is today.

There, the Ninja Turtles are sort of the mighty pets of Sailor Moon :P and followed the popular scheme that has worked for decades in Japan. Transformation, mechas, merging powers... turning it all Japanese... even the turtles physic changes and turn into a totally Asiatic look.

Here's the opening of the TMNT cartoon we know and an episode of the manga-like TMNT Japanese kids grew with.
