I'm in a permanent 'fuck TMNT 2k12' mode right now.
I used to think the way Karai and April were being portrayed was just because the show had terrible writers who can't write three-dimensional characters for BEANS and that it was just more noticeable with their female characters.
But hey, turns out that's a conscious decision, thanks Ciro Nieli!
If you're going to pull shit like this:
“Anytime a girl’s on the show they’re usually too powerful… This happened on Teen Titans… I’ve been fighting it with April to not let her get too powerful… Sometimes guys are a lot cooler and easier to deal with… [With Karai and April as the token bad girl and token good girl] we’re kinda maxed out a little bit.”
Then fuck you.
Fuck this show, fuck the creators, fuck everyone involved with it, lots of middle fingers for everyone around.
And a double fuck off to the people in the fandom that are going to defend this fuckery.
If Adventure Time, OVERLOADED WITH FEMALE CHARACTERS, ALL INTERESTING IN THEIR OWN RIGHTS, can appeal to boys in a certain age group, TMNT should have NO problem doing the same with Karai and April.
