Batman: Gotham Knight Sneak Peek

Batman and animation have had quite the love affair. Starting back in the early 90s with the animated series, Batman's success on the small screen has been astronomical. The DC comics icon now travels into new animation territory by teaming popular writers and famous Japanese animators to produce six anime shorts bridging the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Batman: Gotham Knight, will be the next direct-to-dvd release following Superman/Doomsday and Justice League: New Frontier.

Check out this sneak peek preview brought to you by the internet and the soon to be released New Frontier 2 disc DVD:

Now proceed to pick your jaw off the floor before reading on.

While my friends know i usually hate anime, this actually looks promising. I think its because of the lack of crazy faces and bug eyes that usually flood my brain when I think of that style of animation. It also helps that animators from Japan can animate a cape and play with shadows damn well.

What does everyone else think, Batman + anime= success?

You open your damned mind hole to anime, there are so many amazing things to be seen. Thing about it like going to a comic book shop and only reading one type of comic... well, that would just be dumb. You call yourself a lover of film!? More like a racist jerk.......

I went there.

Haha, seriously though, some anime is really good; check it out.

You can ALMOST add Batman to anything and have success, although, that popsicle with Batman's likeness isn't that great, but anime is an amazing avenue for any animated character. The way that the Japanese view anime is akin to the way Hollywood views their Oscar nominees. It is a highly revered form of art. Looking at it from a comic book angle, it's the ultimate comic book on screen. This ain't your Justice League Unlimited! (not that there's anything wrong with that show. It is quite enjoyable)
