Overview

When Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy pursue the evil Brushogun all the way to the Land of the Rising Sun, the stage is set for a confrontation of epic proportions in this animated adventure that presents everyone's favorite superheroes with an exciting new anime look. Robin has been thrown in jail and it looks as if Brushogun has finally gotten the upper hand on the heroic crime-fighters, but perhaps with a little teamwork the Teen Titans will be able to make the streets of Tokyo safe for the peace-loving population once again.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The Teen Titans -- Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven, Robin, and Starfire -- are in Tokyo, but they're not on vacation. They are in hot pursuit of shadowy figure Brushogun, who sent one of his minions to destroy the Titan home and headquarters. Despite the local police commander's insistence that Brushogun is an urban legend, Robin investigates further. That's the cue for Brushogun's army of manga-inspired, ink-stained monsters to lay waste to Tokyo, and for Robin to run afoul of the law and be thrown in jail for a murder he did not commit (and which, perhaps, did not even happen). Originally broadcast on Cartoon Network, this full-length feature is impressively animated and directed, with bravura action sequences. Trouble in Tokyo is also super funny, with visual gags and clever writing that do justice to each character (the montage of the Titans packing for their Japan trip is a real hoot). More casual Teen Titans viewers, or anyone not proficient in anime or Japanese pop culture, might find themselves at a disadvantage, with in-jokes that will be lost in the translation. But it doesn't take long to establish the character dynamics. Robin, for one, is reluctant for himself and "best friend" Starfire to "be something more than heroes." By film's end, their relationship issues are satisfyingly resolved. And be sure not to miss the end credits, during which each Titan takes a verse on the Titans theme song. Let's just say that Raven, with her Janeane Garafalo-like deadpan, will not be winning any Teen Idol competitions.

I am so sad, this really is the last of RAVEN, BEASTBOY, ROBIN, Cyborge, and Starfire! I'll never see another new eposiode of Teen Titans again. Raven, as always, is my favorite character, and then Beastboy, and then Robin. People should seriously start writing the editor/publisher to make us some more series, and maybe, just maybe, they would actually listen! This was a pretty good one, I'd totally recomend it!
