Storyline

Mutant Turtles: Choujin Densetsu hen (Superman Legend) is a two-part OVA series from Japan based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV show. In the first episode entitled "Super Dai Pinchu! Saint Toujou" (Super Great Fairy! Saint's Entrance", the Turtles explored the temple of the lost Muta Kingdom where they met the spirit of light called Crys-Mu, who was contained inside the Muta Stone. In reward, she gives the Turtles the ability to do the Super Mutation, which turns them from regular turtles into Super Turtles for three minutes. When all four Super Turtles turns into one, they turn into the all-mighty Turtle Saint. At the same time, Shredder and Krang manage to find the Dark Muta Rock as they try to awake the demoness Dark Mu contained inside the crystal. In the Second Episode called "Jugojuu Kourin!

Nothing you've ever wanted, and then some
16 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the few shows from my childhood that I still watch and hold in a high regard is the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, these OAVs are the worst things I have ever seen. First, there's this whole back story that was never fully created, involving these things called mutastones. In fact, both parts involve the turtles finding the stones so they can be like sentai action heroes or something. The voices suck, too. Splinter sounds normal, but nobody else does. Krang's voice reminds me of the cat-thing from Mr. Rodgers. The first story involves Krang wanting to awaken this weird thing from a stone, called Dark Mu. She wakes up, causes havoc around the city, and the turtles have to mutate into Super Turtles, then do the fusion dance or something. By far, the best part of the whole thing is the Gainax bounce that Dark Mu has near the end. The second story involves a bunch of inept ninjas, a hidden fortress that was hidden under a hut, and a mirror with mutastones on the back. Personally, I'm glad that they never brought this over to America. This thing ranks way below the new Turtles show on TV.
