    So...the man behind Guren Lagann is coming out with a Batman Anime movie. Looks interesting. Excited to see all of the Robins in this one. Should be fun.

    Not just Guren Lagann, but Kill la Kill as well, I think. Should be deliciously over the top. The trailer was strange to watch though. Samurai batman is something I'll have to get used to.

    I mean ... there's not many good things to say about this yet. The premise seems as unrealistic as it does needless, and the trailer was absolutely horrid.

    Fuck.

    Fuck right off with all this ultra-low budget CGI anime, Japan. It looks legitimately awful.

    A comic book movie is unrealistic? Who would've thought? I know when I watched that movie about the guy who could shoot lazers out of his eyes and fly through the air or the woman who could deflect machine gun fire with her bracelets, I couldn't stop going on about how accurate and realistic all the physics were.

    Joker doing time travel probably doesn't break the top ten of crazy DC plots.

    I've seen dumber shit.

    I agree that the biggest problem is the CG art style.

    Yeah the CGI wasn't the best, but still excited as hell for this.

    Honestly, actually looking forward to it. Rather psyched for a Batman movie which has more batman characters other than just Batman and the Joker. Sure, not going to get my wish and see Cass and Steph but I'm okay with whom we have seen and the setting and plot seem fun.

    So yeah, looks good so far and hopefully it will be something that is fun to watch and handles the characters well enough.

    Out of all badly done CG anime, why does this one get so much attention?

    You say that like there can be too much Batman.

    But there can't be too much Batman.

    Why?

    Because he's Batman.

    There can be too much bad Batman, actually, there is too much bad Batman now.

    But the best solution to too much bad Batman is more good Batman.

    Get off this anime's dick for one second and stop embarrassing yourself by pretending that everything is allowed because comic books require suspension of disbelief in the first place.

    Realism in fantastic settings is set by in-universe setup and expectations. You should know this.

    To be fair, Rep, Batman / Justice League has done time-travel arcs and world-hopping a bajillionquintupplefuckingmillion times. The setup usually involves superbeings or supergenius intellectuals, of which Joker is neither, so yeah, a bit of a stretch, but not too out there supposing Joker were to have gotten his hands on a time-manipulating artifact of some sort.

    Exactly this. Time Travel and alternate universes are nothing new to the DCU. Compared to Joker stealing Mr Mxyzptlk's powers, stealing a time machine is pretty easy to pull off.

    After the disappointment that was the Killing Joke animated film, I am actually hyped for this.

    Thanks for reminding me of Gotham Knight, @Sataniel. For some reason, I wasn't keen on it at the time.

    The CG is off putting. I can't understand why even after Berserk's general shit reception, Japan still has a hard on for terribly 3D animated films. Honestly, when I read Batman Ninja, I was hoping for something more like Batman in Hong Kong than this shit.
