Incredibly Japanese Mutant Ninja Turtles

The fine folks over at Japanator have dug up this insane clip of a straight-to-video TMNT special titled Legend of the Supermutants, made and released in Japan only. It’s so Japanese it boggles the mind: there’s transformations into turtle-ish superheroes (well after the one that made them into mutant ninja turtles in the first place, mind you), a group transformation into the Turtle Saint, and so much more. Please watch this clip and no matter how goofy a concept Americans can conceive, Japan can always raise the bar for insanity on us.
