Batman Ninja

This seems to be the week of good shows and movies for me. Here is another great one that I got caught up in today. 

In less loving hands it would be an unholy mess, but the passion behind the sheer audacity of what Batman Ninja lays down transforms it into an utterly joyful experience.

I have a thing about watching every single DC animated movie that has been made, much like I watch all the live action Marvel movies. DC Animation has produced amazing productions for decades and this one is no exception. For someone who loves the entire Batman universe and knows little about Japanese anime this is a fresh take on old themes that constantly delights and inspires.

The production design is gorgeous as is standard for the anime genre and still finds fresh takes on characters over 80 years old. It's amazing how the samurai theme and Batman are such a natural fit.
