Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #7

It's a date night (of sorts) for the Turtles. Donatello and April spend some time alone together trying some of the city's various food choices, Michelangelo convinces Raphael to dress up to see the latest kung fu action flick in a theater, and Leonardo spends some rooftop flirting with Karai who he attempts to convince they could be friends.

Eventually all three stories merge as Donnie and April are attacked by the Purple Dragons and Dogpound and lead the small army to the theater where the battle interrupts Mikey and Raph's movie night. Eventually the fight even spills back out into the open ending Leo's opportunity to win over the Shredder's daughter just as he was appearing to make some progress.

The ridiculousness of Mikey and Raphael in women's clothing doesn't go unnoticed by both friends and enemies, and Donnie's attempts to shrug off any romantic aspects of his night with April seem only partially successful. And I always enjoy the combination of Leo and Karai, which is one of the TV show's most interesting pairings. Worth a look.
