Teenage Manga Ninja Turtles

jpg0

You sometimes get strange results when you mash up Eastern (ninjas) and Western (super heroes) cultural genres. And there's barely ever been a better example than Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But what happens when somebody decides to reverse the mash up and do an Eastern version?
I think this here comic tells us the answer. It's the manga version of the turtles, complete with magic fairies and everything.
Read on, unbeliever. And I shouldn't have to tell ya's, but manga reads right to left (as if ya'll didn't know), and also this is a scanlation.

Nice upgrade, huh? Well, Bebop and Rocksteady also have an upgrade (and it actually looks good for them):

Before it's all said and done, the turtles still have to face their worst enemy, the ultimate Digimon SHREDDER:

This is merely a preview. Nice guy that I am, I uploaded the whole 100 page insanity for your viewing pleasure (from the gallery, you can use the 'next' and 'previous' buttons to click through the story):

I also left the scanners' tag as the last page so y'all can visit their website and see what else they have to offer. You're welcome.
