Anyone looking forward to it?
I am not looking forward to it. I will watch it. That is all.
does it have loli?
Fuck yeah, I am.
Batman anime, you say?
Now we can have Batman vs. Death Note threads on /a/ AND /co/.
slowpoke here, is there a trailer or something that gif is from?
I could see this working, in a Leon sort of relationship. Replace Robin with loli, and you've got a potentially great anime.
back to /co/ with this horseshit
looks like he's wearing ray romano mask
it'd better be full of GAR
otherwise it'll be failshit
Everyone always forgets about /tv/
It will be like Batman TAS with better art/animation. It's going to be awesome.
From that 11 minute preview thing, it looked fucking awesome.
/a/ material all the way.
whens it coming out anon?
Go ahead and give into the urge to touch the hat. It's only a natural response to a hat so sexy.
95% chance of NO LOLI
which is too bad
It's Witchblade all over again.
95% of sexy hat
which is good
mixes interviews with actual clips
OH right that video, vaguely remember purposely not watching it because I didn't care to hear a 10 minute history of Batman
I'm probably not going to watch the banana batanime , just listen to reviews about how anime is supposed to give this universal appeal.
It'll probably be less entertaining than Batman: TAS.
If I recall correctly, the sneak peek introduced 5 out of six villains. I'll love this more if they include the Joker.
I love the realistic style and thick black lines
very...noir, I guess
>It'll probably be less entertaining than Batman: TAS.
How do you figure? This being directed by Bruce Timm, and animated by some of the best studios, with American money backing it.
I don't see a single path to failure. Not one.
there's also this which is just the animated clips set to some random rock music
They don't even touch anything about Batman. They just spout bullshit like "lol he's a samurai!" and circlejerk each other about how awesome everyone who's working on it is.
The clips they show are pretty badass though.
Ever the optimist, eh Cirno?
>just listen to reviews about how anime is supposed to give this universal appeal.
Why the hell are you listening to reviews? Who gives a shit?
This is picking at me. Define your version of GAR for me please. If it is full of GAR in it's original meaning then I'm all for it.
This show strikes me as a lot like Loonatics Unleashed; some people with deep pockets want to hook in people using something 'cool, edgy and popular' as a hook to appeal to people. I don't think it'll work, the whole anime thing constricts Timm's creativity if anything.
You also have to remember Batman: TAS was not only innovative, it was a creative reengineering of the original Batman franchise - from camp to clandestine. At best, this show will be a stylilsh rehash or a weaker recycling of the ideas from that series since.
Personally, I'm expecting something similar to Afro Samurai, which while nice looking was a pretty dumb show.
Better include this
Kevin Conroy, voice of Batman from TAS will be reprising his role as the title character. Which is fucking awesome.
No words cannot express what I am feeling.
>You also have to remember Batman: TAS was not only innovative, it was a creative reengineering of the original Batman franchise
And the same man behind that is on this project.
Pay attention, and actually try watching the video.
The batman equivalent of loonatics unleashed is THE BATMAN which is utter shit. This is pretty much the animatrix of the batman franchise, and its going to be made for a a adult auidenece which is all good.
Er, it's Batman. Only kids would look forward to this shit.
Paul Dini and Bruce Timm snuck in so much crazy shit past the censors. It's amazing what they got away with in Batman: TAS
>>And the same man behind that is on this project.
You're a little on the thick side.
The only step beyond what Timm did to the original Batman series is making Bruce Wayne an emo, which would disgrace the legacy Timm spent a decade building. It's Japan's tendancy to turn things emo but they have no control over the writing, so instead we'll have this weird mix of American and pseudo-anime.
I'm not a pessimist by any means, but I'm skeptical that this show is going to be as great as people claim. The worst that can happen is disappointment, I'd say it's best not to get hopes up and rage after the fact.
lol just like any cartoon/anime.
You are the stupidest motherfucker on 4chan.
`Well gee, Batman TAS was great, I wonder what will happen if you take the same guys who worked on that, give them shitloads of money, the best studios in Japan, and tell them to make another project? IT CAN ONLY END BADLY! THE SKY IS FALLING!`
I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of all this AWESOME
OH FUCK IF THE SKY FALLS WHERE WILL WE PUT THE BAT SIGNAL
>>10203826 so instead we'll have this weird mix of American and pseudo-anime.
You mean like Batman: The Animated Series?
Because guess who animated that...
I lol'd. Well played
"The Batman" replaced the bat signal for a PDA signal. What the fuck. I know it makes more sense practically, but you don't fuck with classic imagery
This is you.
Gee, I don't know!
I wonder what company did Big O and Cowboy Bebop, because those sure aren't related at all and I mean seriously why do I keep talking about things that don't have any relation to the topic at hand jesus christ.
Alfred better get his own short. He's one badass English butler.
That is a fucking abomination. I am glad I didn't watch that travesty.
RAGEEEEE. And I suspect the a lot of other people (in the mainstream) will too.
It doesn't make sense, honestly.
Which is easier, fish in your pocket for a PDA or LOOK UP
No batnipples, right?
I prefer the term "utility protrusions"
What about the bumps in the day?
Do you mean crime that occurs during the day? Crime was always at night in classic series and comics to emphasize the seedy underbelly of crime Gothem really was.
Batman very very rarely operates during the day. He needs stealth to avoid getting shot, and he needs to sleep/keep up Bruce Wayne appearances.
Really, the only time the cowl see's sunlight is when he's hanging out with Superman.
And yet it won a goddamn Emmy.
What about the bumps in the day?
>Things that go bump in the night
Ah, I get it now.
Do people still care about those? I'm not trying to sound bitter, but seriously, when has an Emmy ever mattered except to the receiver?
So will Nolan be voicing batman in the anime then?
Batman is like Gundam too me. No matter how shitty it is I'll still watch it.
It looks really good to me. I am looking forward to buying it.
No, Kevin Conroy from TAS is.
Holy Shit...this is fail.
I might buy it. But if I see a torrent I won't be able to help myself
I'll probably end up buying it, but I'm torrenting it first.
HOLY SHIT ON A FUCKING SANDWHICH
This can't and won't beat this.
It can and probably will.
MY OPINION ON THIS SHIT JUST CHANGED.
What studio is doing this?
It might, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Studio 4°C, Production IG, and Madhouse.
Looks interesting, I'll be sure to check it out.
Alfred just shot a fucking Predator with a blunderbuss. Jesus.
I JUST CAME
I wish it was Pierrot, Sunrise, and Kyoani :(
CLAMP should do the character designs.
And so inevitably, comes the comparison between him and Walter.
Hirano Aya as Batman would be win.
