Holy Anime, Batman! One of the greatest detectives in comic book history has had an Asian makeover by some of Japan's most celebrated animators. From the producers of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight come six all-new animated shorts written by contributors including Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Josh Olson (A History of Violence), David Goyer (co-screenwriter of Batman Begins) and four-time Emmy Award-winning writer Alan Burnett. Like The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight employs the talents of celebrated anime directors Shojiro Nishimi, Futoshi Higashide, Hiroshi Morioka, Yasuhiro Aoki, Toshiyuki Kubooka and Jong-Sik Nam. The directors have brought their unique style and visions to create six fresh and exciting interpretations for the Batman franchise. Watch Batman take down Russian and Irish mobsters in the slums of Gotham, track down the insane Scarecrow, fight a fierce battle with Killer Croc and dodge the bullets of the assassin Deadshot all in incredible anime action style. The sleek anime style and often bloody images are not suitable for younger viewers but will appeal to the teen demographic. This is not your typical Saturday morning cartoon fare: be prepared for some brutal violence and a whole lot of blood-letting. Special features on the two-disc collector's edition include commentary by Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman, an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming Wonder Woman, a short documentary on Bob Kane, the creator of Batman, and a documentary on Batman's many villains and their relationship with the Dark Knight. Producer Bruce Timms also shares his favourite Batman animated episodes, which are included on the DVD: Heart of Ice, I Am the Night, Legends of the Dark Knight and Over The Edge. This is a great addition to the Batman animated franchise; the only low point is the first story, Have I got A Story For You. This short is a poor remake of Legends of the Dark Knight, an episode from Season Four of Batman: The Animated Series. But even with this blip, this is definitely a worthy investment, if only to see an anime-styled Dark Knight.
