The battle has only begun for the crime fighting five, who pack their bags and take off for Tokyo to take on their newest menace. Yet, the City That Never Blinks might be too much for the teens -- and the mystery of Brushogun too difficult to solve.]]>

I will admit that the plot was a bit Robin-heavy, though I get the feeling that was intended. Despite this, the amusing antics of the other Titans (specifically the loveable green joker, Beast Boy) in a strange new place make for a fun-filled adventure of a movie. Starfire and Robin also finally manage to sort through their feelings while in Tokyo; definitely not something to miss, especially if you've been a fan of these two.
The music was also beautifully done, and some of the art was especially captivating. The characters singing their own mangled version of the theme song in the ending credits was also quite a treat, and left me in stitches by the time it was done playing.
Overall, an enjoyable film that's definitely worth buying. Here's to hoping that the Titans get more Direct-to-Videos (or even better- more episodes)!
I'd hate to do this but, let me tell you the top five things you may or may not know about the DVD movie (This depends on any of you seeing the movie when it made it's Cartoon Network premiere last September.):
5. In the "special features", amidst the bonus mini game: "Robin's Underworld Challenge", there's also supposed to be the Titans' "Lost Episode" that was originally released online from Post cereals. I'm anxious to see that because it features a brand-new villain named Punk Rocket.
4. Some of the secondary characters and villains in the movie sound just like Kaz from "Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi". Maybe because it's the same actor that plays him. This principle goes the same to Numbuh 3's dad in "Codename: Kids Next Door".
3. Speaking of which, musical montages abound in this movie, but neither of them is a song by J-pop duo "Puffy Ami Yumi". Darn.
2. Beast Boy sings a rather "lopsided" version of the "Teen Titans" theme song. Seems to me like a translated version of the Japanese version of the song. Either way, it's not at all bad, especially with the fact that ALL the Titans sing it during the credit roll.
1. We see Robin and Starfire - *GASP* - KISSING ?!?! OK... I didn't expect that at first either.
I hope Cartoon Network is planning to rerun the movie again, because I can't wait that long (the beginning of February ?!?!) for the DVD release.
Though the DC Animated Universe's unofficial president supreme, Bruce Timm, was involved as the show's producer and Glen Murakami came on for character design, it was made clear right from the get go that Teen Titans was not a part of the interconnected DCAU properties and nor would it ever crossover with then-airing Justice League Unlimited.
The series' creators initially stated that younger children were the intended audience for the series and this was manifest by a slightly super-deformed (large heads) style, complete with goofy anime-inspired characterizations to express emotions.
Naturally die hard comic fans were less than impressed and complaints poured in with a frequency that Executive Producer and Cartoon Network V.P. Sam Register was forced to step in and justify criticism regarding the style of the show: "The main mission was making a good superhero show for kids. Now if the fanboys happen to like the Teen Titans also, that's great, but that was not our mission."
When I first gave the show a go in season 1 (after being spoiled by the earlier shows above), I was quite disappointed and nearly gave up on the whole franchise. Fortunately, as writer J.Read more ›
