are you fUCKING SERIOUS??!?!?!?
I’m pretty sure these arn’t real. For one, Nickelodeon are very protective over production art. Remember, they don’t let their storyboard artist show storyboards until the episode is aired- the only acception for this is comic-con and then they dont like people filming/taking photographs.
So, if this is real then that artist is/will be fired
Secondly, the style of it.
This is an official storyboard/animatic. As you can see its a lot rougher. This one of Karai is WAY too clean.
Also, its too stiff. It lacks the movement that the official storyboards have (click here to see one by Chong Suk Lee) and the framing is wrong. It doesn’t have the official Nickaldeaon framing and it goes horizontal when it should go vertical. You could argue that they edited to make it easier to read on tumblr, but really, if your working for a big company like Nick then you don’t have time to do that.
This and the other one by Ruolin-Li are fake.
It’s still 50/50 for me.
1. Not all storyboard drawers have the same style.
2. Ciro posted about Dreamworks stealing his team before. Might be new staff/people who did this one.
3. Check this statement regarding the legitmacy: (x)
Ruolin Li, the person who posted them on her official tumblr, is a Storyboard Revisionist at Nickelodeon Animation Studios. Look her up. Those storyboards came straight from the source, because she works at Nickelodeon, and she worked on them. She also deleted them not after posting them, so obviously, she probably wasn’t supposed to post them in the first place.
Some people are apparently saying that Ciro ‘called them out as fake’, but that really wouldn’t make any sense, considering that they came officially from someone who works on TMNT storyboards as part of their job. So if he really said that, then he was almost certainly either lying or confused.
I wouldn’t doubt that he might have said they were just storyboards and that means the story is still only in it’s infancy. Because it is. They could go back and change some things, who knows.
Whatever the case, those storyboards were something fans weren’t supposed to see.”
Normally I don;t add my opinion to a confession, but I will this time.
I know that people are tired of Don’s crush on April and the so-called obsessive level that it’s heading for. I feel that was too. But I say so-called obsessive because his behavior is no better than any other fifteen year old who is socially awkward who is love for the first time. Of course he acted like he did in Fungus Humungous, after everything that April went through and the likely chance that there could have been something or someone int he sewers who could have harmed her, especially since Foot Bots invaded the Lair just an episode before and the one before that April got captured and nearly has a needle jammed into her brain, of course hes going to freak out and be worried. Because he cares about her and he doesn’t want anything to happen to her, especially after all that happened in ‘The Kraang Conspiracy’.
And abusive? If he were abusive he would be using brute force and/or emotional abuse to make her love him. If he were abusive, he wouldn’t show any concern for her feelings. And while I won;t deny that his crush is getting ridiculous at times, the reason eh acted like eh did was because he was worried and scared for her safety. When they found her he calmed down and he was nothing but gentle and calm with her. And I did hate how he treated Casey, but again he was worried and when your worried and scared, you act differently than you would normally. Plus he was jealous, and it’s not like Casey just stood there and let him yell at him, he stood up for himself.
I;m not a Apritello fan, nor am I trying to defend Donnie. How he acted towards Casey was mean. But again he was worried, and besides it wasn’t like Donnie was enjoying watching Casey suffer from his hallucinations or anything, if he was then I’d have a problem with it. But Donnie is a teenager in love for the first time, he’s an outcast from society, and he was raised in a sewer his entire life and therefore doesn;t fully understand the norms of a romantic relationship or how to really make one work. I do wish that they showed more of how the other Turtles react to when something happens to April, but Don having the strongest reaction is understandable since he has feelings for her and all. Also yes Donnie did follow April twice, but he didn;t do it to force her to like him, he’s never tried to outright force her. While following her around was again wrong, he also did it because again he was worried about her, plus there were still bad guys out there targeting her along with who knows how many mutants thanks tot he canisters. He followed her because he wanted to see that she was okay, and since she was mad at him he couldn’t just go up to her and we saw what would happen if he did in ‘Target: April O’Neil’.
Donnie was mean and how he’s been acting at times was wrong, especially how he acted towards Casey (though he only snapped at him briefly twice). But there are reasons why he did, and it;s not due to an obsession. It was out of worry, and there is a difference. The kid is still growing up and we still have a good chunk of the season to go, for all we know things will improve. But I think we need to calm down some because I think that people are over-reacting a lot to the shipping stuff.
Lets just calm down and see what happens int he future, the more we complaint he more upset we’re gonna get.This is the reason I posted this. Thank you for expressing your thoughts. BTW I didn’t make that confession!
Apritello vs. Capril
I think that, given the opportunity, Donnie would be the one most likely to swear the most.
Sure, Raph would do so occasionally, but Donnie would get frustrated. Working on some wiring and he burns himself, breaking yet another staff, not having answers to his brothers’ questions, and so on. I bet he’d get loud and creative about it, too.
For example, I could just hear it in his voice during The Kraang Conspiracy; “It’s a Kraang Sweet 16 birthday party! How the fuck would I know?!”
I dunno. That’s just me speculating, I guess.
I actually accidentally cuss once in a while. While alone in the lab, of course. I normally catch myself, but… Sometimes I can’t help it.
If I ran around screaming the F word, I’m pretty sure sensei would hang me upside down by my toes.
I love how this turned from a shipping thing to Donnie swearing.
This is the epitome of cuteness because just look how comfortable they are around each other like they’re just chillin like best buds that’s rad as hell
Yes! This is why I ship them! They seem conformable and natural around each other. Casey is friendly with her and talks to her normally and calmly, like she’s a n equal. Compare to Donnie, who is always trying awkwardly to get her attention and makes a fool of himself to get her to like him instead of just being himself. Casey acts like himself, no awkwardness or advances, eh just acts like a normal guy.
April cares for Donnie, but she isn;t fond of his advances, but with Casey she seems conformable and actually like show he doesn’t act protective of her and just treats her like a regular teenager. She and Casey act like a regular pair of friends do, and it is that natural reaction that romantically or just as friends, I ship them together.
Okay I appreciate your opinion and am not saying this as a shipper of anything, but as someone who has a ton of guy friends and I understand it’s nice to have someone you’re totally chill with but I sit like this with my bro friends all the time and feel the same way without having to have feelings for them.
I find there’s always awkwardness in having stronger feelings than that and sometimes it’s more subtle, but so far it just seems like Casey and April are just more like really good buds here. Go ahead and disagree, I’m just imaging someone thinking this way about me if they see me like this with my friends and I’m kinda cringing.
I do respect your ship and your opinion, I’m just saying about this in general. But I do agree with you on how Donnie is overbearing. It’d be nice if he could tone it down. It’s not that he doesn’t see her as an equal, he’s just trying too hard to be noticed. After all, he’s probably super insecure over Casey and also the fact that he’s a mutant and Casey isn’t. I get Donnie’s fears and I honestly think we’d all react the same way if we were in his shoes. Er, bandages?
Just some food for thought. Carry on and hug a Mikey.
