Batman Gotham Knight

Well. What can I say about this other than it is unbelievable! I picked it up tonight on the way home from work and manoman – this kicks ass!

This is probably the best animated Batman since Batman: The Animated Series debuted back in the day. That was 1992, to be specific.

This is Batman at his finest. Tortured, haunted by his parents death, driven to fix things and, most of all, an absolute bad ass.

The premise here was to present a Batman story in six parts – each written by a different author and brought to life by a different Japanese animation master. From the official Batman: Gotham Knight website:

“Six standalone chapters, each with stylish art from some of Japan’s greatest anime visionaries, weave together into a larger story that follows Batman through his transition from beginner to The Dark Knight.”

The stories are superb and the animation simply amazing. I love this DVD. It’s available in three sets, a single disc, a two disc special and Blue-ray – whichever your preferred format, I highly recommend you pick one up.
