Batman: Gotham Knight - First Look
Was just directed to a video of a new first look at the upcoming Gotham Knight anthology animation project. I have to say, I'm impressed by what I see; definitely more excited about this than I was about The Animatrix. As far as underwear perverts go, Batman's always been one of the best, and it looks like the anime directors are going to capture the Batman universe in a very cool way. I'm definitely liking the fact that the look that most of the artwork goes for is on the more realistic end of the scale. Even the images that are the closest to the stereotypical "anime style" look like they come out of the Death Note anime (which is, of course, a bit more realistic-looking than your average Shounen Jump title), and the most hard-edged ones are almost gekiga-looking. Very fitting, I'd say.
I really can't wait to find out more about Satoshi Kon's segment in the project, as well.
