    The idea is cool, but anime? Really? Why not just traditional American animation. Lord knows those guys could use the work in this Pixar-overrun world.

    Don’t be a hater, B.L. The inspiration for GOTHAM KNIGHT was THE ANIMATRIX. It’s a novel idea and looks like an interesting experiment whether you consider it to be a bridge between BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT or a stand-alone project.

    I agree with Andrew Laubacher on this. Though the style of Batman: Gotham Knight resemble that of anime, it isn’t true anime style which is what the directors wanted.

    You see in anime, they traditionally use pastel colors, but that wouldn’t work to a Batman animated film very well. Too happy and bright. So they blended the styles together and came up with a great and fiting look for each little episode.

    Batman: Gotham Knight, is something I truly recommend for every Batman fan to buy or at least see.
