So, it's official: "Doing machines" is what the people want, as Team Marina's Donatello took the 2 - 1 victory over hot-headed badass, Raphael.

Flag-bearer Hello Kitty defeated Cinnamoroll 2 - 1, despite the latter taking a huge 60% of the public vote. So at least Pearl has something to be stoked about this weekend,
Next week will see My Melody face off against Pompompurin, the winner of which will now face the feline one in the Grand Finals. But, for now, congratulations are in order for Team Marina and her boy, Donatello. Maybe brains really are better than braun.
