TMNT III manga adaptation Chapter 2 translated!

This one was fun to translate, as you start to get an idea of how much the manga adaptation of TMNT III deviates from the actual movie.  It still follows the same general plot outline, but it's all quite a bit more exciting.  Lord Norinaga now has his own bumbling henchmen (Iron and Silver, pictured above) and the trip down to the dungeon for April's rescue is pepped up with Indiana Jones-style booby traps.

Thanks, as always, go to Adam Winters for the scans and Cryomancer of the Optical Internet Translation Gang for the text editing and clean-up.  I'll probably take a little time off from reviewing in the next week or two so I can translate chapter 3.  In the meantime, of course, that'll mean some Awesome Turtle Pictures to keep the place updating.
