Batman Anime Trailer and First look

So an new Batman anime movie is actually a thing and it looks pretty amazing. Our first taste of a Batman anime was all the way back in 2008 with Batman Arkham Knight, which was a compilation of short animations from different artists. It was released as a promotional project that coincided with the Batman: The Dark Knight movie. Personally I loved this idea and always wondered what it would be like to see batman in his own anime movie. Well wonder no longer Nerd Nation because an official Batman anime is coming and it looks awesome. The movie is titled Batman Ninja and we have the trailer and first look posted for you in a video below.

Batman Ninja was created by story writer Kazuki Nakashima (Kill La Kill) and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai). You can definitely see the stylistic animation that is reminiscent of the Afro Samurai series. The premise of the movie is basically Batman, along with a number of his allies and adversaries, find themselves transported from modern day Gotham City to feudal Japan. Pretty simple stuff but it still looks interesting and exciting. As a fan of both Japanese anime and American comics, I am really excited to see this especially with such established names from the industry attached to it.

Batman Ninja is set to release on digital download, DVD, and blu-ray sometime in 2018. So check out the official DC trailer and first look at the upcoming Batman anime movie and as always, let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation.
