It looks like a Jojo OP. It's bizarre that DC animation is better than Marvel's even if it's outsourced to Japan. And when it's using cell-shaded CGI. Even Harley looks good, despite being based on the modern design.

It's probably Grodd or maybe color-swapped and alignment swapped Congorilla.

I am too, but it's written by the screen-writer of Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, so my interest is piqued.

That, and they gave The Joker a ridiculous mustache.

This is without a doubt, the most retarded fucking thing I ever seen out of DC and I seen the Supergirl spinoff movie. Unlike that trite shit, this is more likely he greatest fucking thing I ever seen. Because the Joker is fucking Oda Nobunaga,

I'm glad to see it. I always found it annoying that main samurai characters don't have that haircut, which I assume is due to modern day audiences finding it unappealing.

Because it's two completely separate industries, the people that have been learning how to 3D for decades are not the same people making this. Plus, anime has a distinct style as well, so translating that into 3D is going to be different from simply making the models and animation look as "realistic" as possible.

There was a fucking nigger samurai, there's no way there weren't any badass women samurai.

Luke Price
Luke Price

There were probably no women in the same league as Honda Tadakatsu or Sanada Yukimura but there were some famed for being quite fearsome like Otatsu no Kata, Tachibana Ginchiyo or Ikeda Sen. Folklore tends to heavily embellish some tales and Sengoku Jidai-based fiction goes full stronk wammen with some for no reason other than having vaginas in the cast but there were some.

Back to the topic and after getting a little more informed on the matter, the whole time travel aspect killed my buzz. I think it would have been better with a group of samurai, ninja, etc that all happened to closely resemble Batman characters. My humble two cents anyway.

Nathan Howard

I am not so sure, the way you say it, it would just have been a retelling of a classic Batman story, maybe year one, but set in Feudal Japan, instead of modern day Gothan, but with this we have modern day heroes and villains sent back to feudal Japan bringing their technology and knowledge(the giant robot) with them, so the crazy is dialed-up to eleven.

Liam Gonzalez
Liam Gonzalez

Couldn't we just do a Shanghai Batman series instead? I am not feeling this at all. I want to like it, but it feels like it is going to be a huge letdown.

Yet I am glad that "Bob" is getting more character design work though

Yet this feels even more forced. And so meh. I get the whole crazy aspect due to the Trigger writer, yet I think it will begin to lose its personality just for the sake of being kurazy for no reason. Pretty much it is going to Samurai Warrior/Devil Kings cutscenes with Batman skins on top of them.

As if they would need any time travel excuse to put a giant robot in a fucking anime.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, and I'm disappointed that this isn't the case.

Being a feminist
A drawing doesn't prove shit

Liam Fisher
Liam Fisher

I'll defend the decision. Using a Batman set in the time period would defeat the purpose of "Batman Ninja". The draw of "Batman Ninja" is, literally, Batman becoming a ninja. So they take Batman and his villains, throw them into the past, so that Batman can become a ninja.

Boom, right there you have mystery, conflict, tension, and a character arc for Batman. You've got the mystery of how they ended up in the past and how to get back. Conflict as Batman has to adapt to limitations of medieval Japan. We've got tension since the history of the world is on the line. Finally, character arc, as Batman has to discard his reliance on technology to save Japan and the entire world.

A Batman from the setting wouldn't provide any of that, and by it's nature would have to be an origin story to allow for things like character arcs, tension, ect. It's a premise that would work for a Batman Ninja series, not a movie.

Personally, I hope we get a cameo from Professor Carter Nichols.

PAVERU HAKASE

If by Onna-bugeisha you mean women who were dedicated warriors, then the answer is extremely rare. Tomoe Gozen is the only individul Japanese female warrior to receive any significant description in a Japanese war account (she was described in the Heike Monogatari, an account of the Gempei war of 1180-1185). This account also gives insight into your question about how they were looked upon during that time: Kiso Yoshinaka, the samurai that she served, had resolved himself to death in a dire situation and instructed her to leave, not because he feared for her life so much as he didn't want the dishonor of dying alongside a woman.

Fucking roasties inserting themselves on men's battlefields.

Perfection

Wyatt Barnes
Wyatt Barnes

I see your point but it doesn't necessarily have to be a origin story. Could just about a ninja avenging his clan by fighting a deranged daimyo and his retainers. I think the Batman characters translate well to the feudal Japan setting, Batman as a ninja, Joker as a aristocrat with face paint, Catwoman as a kunoichi/thief etc etc. I really like how over the top the designs are (though I'd strip some modern elements and have it more contemporary). Not saying it's shit, just that it's not my cup of o-cha.

Side note, I think the gorilla will be a stand-in for Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Same kabuto and it would be a play on Hideyoshi's "Monkey King" nickname.

Kevin Brown
Kevin Brown

Yeah, but everything you just wrote isn't "Batman Ninja". It's a Batman Ninja, but not Batman as a Ninja.

Also, much of what you wrote isn't Batman either. Batman's parents would have to be killed by bandits, lead a secret double life, be called upon by the authorities to fight crime, and have a child side-kick. At that point you'd realize they've already made a Batman in Japan, and it was called Rurouni Kenshin.

Aiden Roberts
Aiden Roberts

The point of this isn't to have Japanese Batman, it's to have American Batman in feudal Japan and jack off to how great the country is. This is like seeing a trailer for a Transformers movie and thinking, "This would been better if it was Medabots"

Komusō were a group of monks that wore baskets over their heads as some anti-vanity thing. Ninja and spies would pretend to be them so they could wander the country wearing a mask.

Justin Fisher

Wait Ruroni Kenshin is still going on? I thought it got finished and there was some movie that showed what happened after the series ended but it was considered too depressing so it wasn't canon.

Surprisingly

Isaac Davis
Isaac Davis

Not quiet.

The manga finished in 1998, the anime finished way before the manga, and they made movie/OVA stuff that covered what the anime didn't covered. It was definitely canon.
However, it was announced early this year that Watsuki was doing a sequel, for a part he'd originally planned for the manga but ended up not doing, so the manga suddenly resumed almost 20 years after ending.
After only 2 or 3 chapters, the fucker got arrested for CP like the deviant shitbag he is and ruined the dreams of millions.

You know, ordinarily, I would agree with you.

But when you look at how 2D animation was treated even back then…

Animation would have died without 3D animation man… it sucks, but that's just the way it is.

That said, 3D anime is such a fascinating beast. Its like using claymation to make a bugs bunny cartoon- it doesn't work from like… a physical standpoint, but at the same time…

They did have guns in feudal Japan. Granted it was more like flintlocks but it did exist.

Gavin Williams

What everybody thinks of as "feudal Japan" (the Edo period) was actually a return to Feudalism and a rejection of modernity. While they were deliberately using swords and farming with horses, Europe was building steam-powered ships and factories and, just before the Meiji restoration, the first railways and maybe even telegraphs.
Which must have been pretty amazing when Japan rejoined the modern world. Imagine being some ordinary peasant in a reasonably sized city, getting thrust from the 11th century to the 19th almost overnight. If you were the right age you could have been born in a world of blazing torches and horseback messengers and died in one of electric lights and telephones

Jack Brooks

Gorilla Grodd, Deathstroke, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Two Face, Joker, Penguin, Clayface, and catwoman as far as members of the rogues gallery.
Batman, Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Robin, Robin and Alfred as far as the Bat Family is concerned.

I want DC and Marvel to crash and burn as soon as possible, so I try to avoid supporting their shit. Marvel is shit in both comics and movies, and DC is slightly less shit in comics, even shitter in movies.

But god fucking damn if DC doesn't know how to make decent animated shit. Aside from their new 52 adaptations being pretty shit and the Killing Joke sucking dick, most of their animated stuff is really enjoyable. And this, despite some obvious flaws, looks to be real fun.
Why do they do this NOW of all times when I want to hate DC, rather than years ago when I would have been over the moon about this?

That's Red Hood
Holy fucking shit I didn't catch that

Matthew Bell

I noticed the comics have been going downhill, maybe we're in for a sharper decline?

Noah Collins

supporting their shit
implying anyone on Holla Forums is going to buy it

Spend money only when it's worth money.

At this point, I wonder what the Monkey's Paw could take from DC that actually matters.

DC be bought by Disney and merged with Marvel just as Cebulski is fired.
