    • I like her better when she's single *crosses fingers* please stay single, PLEASE STAY SINGLE! I want her to be an awesome kunoichi not just Casey's or Donnie's GF or something.

    • The Donnie and April thing is cute but he's a turtle and shes a human. Casey has a soft side for April but I dont think April likes him that much. For me I just want April to stay single.

    • You put Chris Bradford as the topic? I'll make the topic more accurate :-)

    • In the long run, I guess we'll wait and see, considering I think that there may be some hope for Donnie, but realistically, it may not work out COMPLETELY for him with April due to the fact she's human (even if she also has alien DNA) and Donnie's a mutant turtle.

      Even with that storyboard moment of April kissing him, we just can't immediately say how it will go, considering she is still young and also an epic butt kicking kunoichi.

      Well that's just your opinion man too apparently.  I like April and Donnie together but it would just be better to keep them guessing and keep her single.

      This is true. :) And we haven't seen April also show interest in Casey or Donnie, so we're not so sure if she'll end up with EITHER of them.

    • April really hasn't shown too much of a preference one way or the other as far as returning Donatello's feelings.  I mean, she hasn't said she like likes him, but, then again, she never stated the opposite, either.  Love is an open door, dudes.

      And I'm not necessarily saying there's no hope for Casey, either.  There are many open doors to choose from. 

      Or, ya know, if you're rooting for the "April will stay single forever" route, then I guess she's content with the room she's in right now, and feels that she has no need to go through any of said open doors. 

      I'll respect whatever decision she makes, as long as she doesn't lead anybody on.  But personally, I'm rooting for Donnie. :3  Turtle power!

      Well, they could go there and completely eliminate romance from the series overall, but it wouldn't be very realistic, then.  It's pretty hard to go through life without romance having an influence to some degree, especially when your a teenager with powerful emotions and teen angst.  Mutants are no exception.  Just wanted to throw that on the table.

      It's true, sometimes people can go overboard with the shippings and the romance and the love triangles...and the fangirling.  And I would agree in saying that we shouldn't take it too far, and that we should remember this is an action show, not, as Raph would say, "a romantic comedy."  But love is such a crucial part of sentient life, that it would be kind of hard to avoid it in a relatively serious TV series like this.

      Touche.  That would probably be the smart thing to do.  Then again, the Justice League has a world to save like, every five minutes, and yet that doesn't stop Wally West from flirting at every chance he gets. XD  Doesn't stop Spiderman from falling for Gwen Stacy, or Mary Jane Watson. :9  I guess even heroes get lonely...even when they know it's only going to slow them down, or make them vulnerable, or give the bad guys one more thing to take away from them. ^-^ It's like, so stupid, yet so inevitable.

    • Getting back to the question: AprilxDonnie or AprilxCasey. I've seen so many variations of the story with Casey and April getting together. I think I'd like to see it change tactics.

      In the 2012 version, unlike others (spoilers) April isn't completely human and that presents a opportunity that didn't exist before to connect them. And it isn't as though it's unheard of; Elisa Maza and Goliath on Gargoyles is an excellent example of a relationship built on love despite physical differences; it's a classic "Beauty and the Beast" storyline for April and Donnie that I would like to see develop since it would truly set this verison of the story apart from the rest. So, my thoughts are to go ahead and let Donnie and April take the next step.

    • Hey, Casey's not a bad guy; not my type personally, but he's obviously very dedicated to protecting the people he cares about and that includes April. Donnie's a favorite of mine and I think it's a cute idea to have him crush on April, but I don't think it will come to anything. I think Donnie is going to be facing some major changes in his position on the team (I've heard rumors he'll be facing a position as a leader) and that's going to affect a lot of things.

      Personally, I think April shouldn't be with either Casey or Donnie (or any of the turtles, if I'm honest); the show has a new dynamic with April being a teenager and having training as a female ninja, so I think the rule "never date someone you work with" could apply here. But hey, if a relationship with April and anyone helps to move the story along, go ahead and do it.

      Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of April and Donnie too (Rob Paulsen just makes everything sound appealing) and I think it's cute to see such a switch for the storyline not just diving right into the usual "AprilxCasey" relationship. I just remind myself that it's a kids show and that romance probably won't be at the forefront for our favorite boys.

    • All well-said arguments.  I believe that it could go either way...I don't care for people who say Apriltello is not going to happen, as if they know it for a fact, 100%.  Nothing is set in stone...and, if you pay attention, there have been plenty of inter-species romance plot-lines in kids shows/movies.  Take the aforementioned Beauty and the Beast, for example.  Or Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  Or Teen Titans.  Or Young Justice, or Justice League for that matter. (Now you see how much of a nerd I am). 

      Or Adventure Time...or Regular Show...The Amazing World of Gumball suggests pairing a blue cat with a horned peanut, for crying out loud.

      The list goes on.  I've made my point.  While Casey is adorable/a great guy, I would like to see something new, and Apriltello has the potential to bring something fresh into the picture.

      And if the whole Apriltello thing doesn't work out...I ship Irmatello. ^___^

      Umm, having just watched The Invasion on Nick.com (which I won't spoil for you if you haven't watched it), but I think you might have to rethink Irma as a potentional "ship."

    • I had this dream last night (too much Turtles?) where Donnie was facing down a mutant that was tried to convince Donnie that, if Donnie joined him, he would give him his heart's desire: and shows a vision of April in Donnie's arms.

      Donnie shouts "I love April and I want her to be happy. And if being happy means that she chooses him (meaning Casey) then I will do whatever it takes to keep them together."

      As much as I love Apritello, I'm inclined to think that heartache is going to make Donnie that much more appealing as a character and a better, more focused leader/second-in-command.

      I know it was sort of far-fetched to think that there was going to be any turtle-human romance in this incarnation, but a girl can dream.  Apriltello will still be in my dreams.  (Yes, yes, laugh at my cheesy fangirl-lingo.  I won't be offended.  Okay well maybe I will but I can't really do much to stop you either way, now can I?) 

      I agree on one thing, though...if Don suffers heartbreak, it will only make him a stronger turtle.  And even if it's not with April, I hope he manages to find the right gal for him...be her a mutant or a human...or another Kraang-human hybrid...^.^ 

      A nice guy like Donnie shouldn't be forever alone.

      Not so much "rejected" as "pushed the discussion aside." Donnie never got a chance to say word one about his feelings, but April obviously isn't prepared to tell him how she feels, but it is likely that she'd probably say she didn't feel the same way. But she didn't want to talk about it, so she just stopped him from saying anything.

      Yeah, you have a point.  And, on a related note, I know that she really doesn't want to hurt Donnie, but...Was all that kissing and leading-him-on really necessary?  She didn't have to kiss him.  Never kiss a guy unless you intend to date him, even if it's only on the cheek, because he's going to take that as a sign that he's got a chance with you.  Friendly-hugs is probably where she should've stopped, if she didn't feel anything romantic for him. :(

    • April seems to be pushing both Donnie and Casey away. Until Kraang Prime revealed himself, I might have guessed she was actually closest to Irma or something (or at least was using Irma as a social shield to deflect Casey's advances). But what does seem certain is that April, Donnie and Casey (and the rest of the turtles, for that matter) are all relatively immature, volatile, hormonal teenagers, as the 2012 TV series likes to constantly remind us in such comedic fashion.

      Some of us long-time TMNT fans are middle-aged now, and remember being a teenager as a time when so many things we thought were a lot more meaningful, proved to be more fleeting and impermanent. I mean, the TMNT franchise (except maybe for the never-too-serious Fred Wolf cartoon) likes to deconstruct change and impermanence, with many of the changes not necessarily being for the happier. This April, Donnie and Casey may ultimately not be rewarded with the things they want, but may have to learn to accept the things they're given—that's part of growing up, after all. Really, of this show's main group of characters, I think the one who has been most successful at getting what he wants, has been Mikey, but he's already naturally talented at seizing the moment for all it's worth.

      Also, one moment that stood out to me in Within the Woods, was Casey trying to flirt with April, and April getting annoyed and wanting none of it. She clearly has too much weighing on her, what with losing Splinter, losing Kirby, almost losing Leo, losing both her homes in New York, losing her best friend Irma (if there ever was a real Irma), and many of these events only being possible because of her usefulness to the Kraang in being the perfected half-Kraang mutant specimen herself, of which she is still regularly reminded every time she experiences her psychic powers. I'm willing to guess that entertaining Donnie or Casey is a wee bit too far down her list of priorities right now.

      ...which would effectively make it all the more convenient for the show's writers to continue tormenting Donnie and Casey for comedy and keep punting this question further down the road. :) But their dynamic may have already changed somewhat since The Invasion, Part 2. Casey has to be perceiving a whole lot of mixed messages from April. And Donnie has gone from infatuated, to competitive with Casey, to now outright fearful about his standing or lack thereof. April said that talking about their feelings would only make them hurt more; but I suspect Donnie is already hurting, and distracts himself from that hurt by burying himself in work and in the various tasks of helping the group survive.

      And yes, I know this has been a long post, but there's one more thing I've considered that would make the equation much more interesting if true. It does seems that April has never been ignorant of Donnie's feelings, but not just because one would have to be denser than Mikey not to see it. Her psychic powers are murky and sporadic in nature, and it seems April doesn't fully understand or know how to command them, and yet they're still always there. If this includes telepathy (as seen with Dr. Rockwell), I think it's very possible or indeed likely that neither Donnie nor Casey's feelings are much of a mystery to her. But if she can read them better than she's letting on, then this exposes both of them rather bare to her, and she may not want to humiliate them with such an uncomfortable revelation. At the same time, having them be no real mystery to her also probably means that neither are all that capable of genuinely surprising her the way a romantic interest can. It may also have been why her best friend all that time was actually Irma; April probably couldn't read Irma so easily, because Kraang Prime didn't let April perceive anything but what he wanted her to perceive. If some of April's friends' minds aren't enough mystery to her, then Irma's opacity may have actually made April feel more ordinary, and that made it easier for them to be close. And now she doesn't even have that anymore.

      Thus, for now, concludes my longwinded analysis of the whole April-Donnie-Casey situation. :)

      Well,if this storyboard is true,then maybe there will be a Don x April moment,many fangirls believe that April kissed him on the lips,but if you look closer,it seems like she only kissed him on the cheek, because when she walks away,Donatello seems like he wanted to touch his cheek.And when she really kissed him on the lips.Then why he seems sad in the last panel and says"I understand Nothing"?

      'Course, only reason many people think April's kissing Donnie on the lips, Sugilita, is how the angling is in the shots OF the kiss, which is why they think it could be a kiss on the lips, but thinking about whatcha said, it makes some sense. If it was a kiss on the lips, you think he might touch his lips, not his cheek.

      First of all, though I never watched the 2003 series, I don't know any TMNT fan friends who don't loathe Cody Jones as a mary sue.

      Secondly, Mirage April was revealed to be barren because she was never technically human in the first place and cannot conceive children by Casey or anyone else; their stepdaughter Shadow Jones is their legacy, and Tales of the TMNT suggests that even her future is far from assured. There is no Cody Jones in the Mirage comics.

    • Donatello has always been my favorite turtle and he's the only one to never have a girlfriend or romantic interest in any incarnation. I'd like to see him get some action for a change. This version of Casey is too annoying to be allowed to breed or be a father.

      I see what you're saying, but remember this Casey is a 16/17 year old boy, a high school jock and, in my opinion, just a little bit naive compared to the Turtles and even April; as such, he's bound to be annoying, especially when he knows he can push buttons and get a reaction. As for this Casey being allowed to breed or be a father...I refer you again to the statement that Casey is 16/17 years old in this version.

      PS, Donnie has always been my favorite too. Only once was Raphael also included as a favorite and that was during the 1987 version because he was funny and sarcastic.

    • (Note: This entire post is VERY opinionated and I am NOT trying to hate on either ship. Please note that before replying to me or before getting angry at me. I am only saying what I believe and I am NOT expecting others to feel the same way. Thank You.)


      As much as I'd love to see Donnie happy with April (since he is my favorite turtle), I would rather all three of them stay single. Not because I dislike Apritello or Capril but because I don't think it would be helpful for the series as it progresses. It will cause unneeded stress to the show and would just make things confusing. And Donnie has actually been super creepy to April during this series, going as far as to know her location at all times of day. And while he has said sorry for all that and promised to stop being so stalkerish, that doesn't mean he should get the girl.


      I also believe that April strings him along a bit too much. Take the whole "mutating my father" thing that occured at the begining of season 2... She hated him and went as far as saying she never wanted to speak to them again but at the end of "Target: April O'Neil", she kisses him. I understand they reestablished ties during that episode and she forgave the turtles but its a little too much, especially since she completely ignored his affections later on in the season (noteably in the finale). And then, during "A Foot to Big", she strung him along again, ignoring (or atleast attempting to ignore) the music box Donnie gave her to show his affections only to kiss him and call him "her mutant" by the end of the episode. And now she is ignoring his affections again, as shown in "Buried Secrets". She does the same thing to Casey multiple times too. All this back and forth is very wrong and kind of hurtful to both Donnie and Casey.


      In conclusion, I don't feel Apritello or Capril should become a thing. Both ships are hurtful to all three of the characters and the show. The show would be better without the tension.

    • okay even though I am not in favor of Apritello I'm actually just hoping Casey won't be hurt. I've felt pity for Donnie over his crush long enough. I think the spark or quirk of his crush has lost its charm. It's just kinda old now. I'd be okay if April were single. I want Casey to have his backstory be opened up. I wanna see his dad and sister, find out what happened to his mom. I wanna know how he feels about being held back a few times and being older than most of the kids in his class, does he feel even more stupid that people his age probably already graduated. I know this is a show only focusing on the turtles, but I just hope we slowly learn these little bits of pieces of Casey's life. He's a cocky sweetheart and I really don't like reading people bashing him. I'd just like there to be an episode where maybe Casey doubts his worth to the team and decides to leave and we see the impact of him leaving the team affecting the turtles and April. I mean I can picture him saying something like 'You guys have saved the world before without me, heck you've done a lot without me. I'm just dead weight'. Especially after seeing that clip of Hun coming soon, I wouldn't be surprised if his ego took a serious shot [no pun intended] after that.

      Many people are accusing Venus in being a Sue,but if you look at April (2012 TV series ),she is a Sue too,and she and Venus have many things in common like:1.Both have mind powers.2.Both fight with a Tessen.3.Both are the center of attention in the series.4.Both are love interests and have guys fighting over her.5.Both have pony tails.6.Both are the fifth member of the group.etc,etc. -.-

      I kind of agree with SunsetVolcano wanting her to be single but at the same time also want her with Donnie....

      I don't don't think having a relationship will hert her awsome status.

    • Donnie was in love with April first (plus he's adorable) so I think he should be with her.

      DONNIE X APRIL FOREVER!!!

      No. But then, not all the different characters in the different continuities are exactly alike. They have personality differences, subtle or not. 2k12 Donnie has stronger romantic feelings than other Donatelli, and April is relatively closer to his own age. And while 2k12 Donnie can be painfully awkward, other Donatelli can be far more introverted and that much more antisocial, not always caring about other people as much as this Donnie does. 2k12 Donnie and April seem to have been written from the beginning as a romantic will-they-won't-they comedy.

      In the Mirage continuity, April also met Don first before meeting Casey, and they initially had far more in common—April was Baxter's assistant and a software engineer, working closely together to shut down the Mousers. When Casey was introduced, he initially only befriended Raphael. And though the turtles, Splinter, April and Casey ended up living together in Northampton for a few years, Casey's developing love for April was unrequited. Casey eventually took off, met a pregnant woman in Colorado (Gabrielle), married her, and got ready to start a family. But Gabrielle died in childbirth, and Casey adopted her newborn daughter Shadow. The experience helped make Casey more mellow and more mature. He and April only started a relationship after they met again and be reacquainted a while. But all this time, Donnie had really done nothing to pursue April the way Casey belatedly tried to. Volume 4 later showed that Donnie cared a great deal about April, but like a sister.

      But the formula is very different in 2k12. In many ways, Donnie and April have more in common and greater compatibility, but also each their own baggage. Casey wasn't introduced until season two, though just like in Mirage, his crush on April is mostly one-sided. Since not all TMNT continuities are the same, and 2k12 certainly has a different character balance, it gives the writers the opportunity to be more unpredictable. I suppose it's possible that April could end up with either Donnie or Casey, or even neither of them. But Donnie had a good head start, which is why it's fair that there are so many viewers that want them to be together.

      Also, there's something else to consider. What might happen to Donnie if he's alone for the rest of his life? What if he gives up, retreats inward, and no longer wants to care about other people at all? Then you may get the future Mirage version of him portrayed in Plastron Cafe, where he's no longer with his brothers, and becomes upset when he's forced to remember them. Or even worse, his Mutant Ninja Turtles Gaiden version, which deconstructs an even worse case possible scenario where Donnie cuts out all other people and descends into an amoral madness. Now, I know there are still a lot of readers and viewers who care about Donnie even if they don't want him to end up with April. But I think, if April and Donnie can make each other happy, then perhaps they should. And then Casey could still potentially be written to fall in love with a new 2k12 version of Gabrielle. After all, even Mirage Casey never stopped loving Gabrielle, but he moved on with April only after she died.

    • Donnie & April together reminiscent of Sonic & Elise, both the female human characters have kissed anthropomorphic animals.
