There’s a Chuck Tingle title in there somewhere.

Pounded in the Butt ‘til I birthed a root vegetable. Something like that.

I mean... that could be august instead of may. MM/DD/YYYY instead of DD/MM/YYYY.

Still probably be a wtf due to how far off it would be, but it'd probably involve fewer chronospheres to manage possibility!

They made an anime called Batman Ninja. Batman is a samurai (somewhat confusingly).

... I see the trailer, and can't help but think that looks like possibly the best thing to come out of the batman franchise in years, maybe ever. It looks absurd in the best of ways.

E: Jeez, the pedigree on that thing is actually pretty baller. Jojo, Kill la Kill, and Afro Samurai all have folks that worked on 'em contributing. No clue if I'll get around to watching it any time soon but it kinda' legit looks like it might be one of the best bits of batman media to hit a TV screen equivalent.

It has a low IMDB score, but is pretty high on rotten tomatoes. I'd assume that a lot of people have pre-decided that they don't like it.

Also, it's noteworthy that the English adaptors admit they completely rewrote all the dialogue so they're apparently like two different movies. That's the sort of thing that would be interesting to compare.

I mean, that was a legendary result in the case of Ghost Stories, but I somehow doubt that Shinobatman is going to go the same direction.

I tried watching Samurai Pizza Cats as well, but it just didn't grab me like Ghost Stories did.

Let me clarify the ratings thing: the high ratings are from critics, low ratings are from average viewers.

Which is a similar pattern to e.g. The Last Jedi or something. But this time it can't be brushed off with "well it's fake reviews from alt-right people upset they made Batman a girl this time". The thing is, the alt-right are fairly heavily associated with using anime avatars, so I can't really see it being an alt-right backlash against Batman being made into an anime or anything. Trying to politicize "people didn't like <thing I like>" by implying people who didn't like it are closet Nazis is one of the current pathological ways to debate whether movies are any good.

... What?

I feel like this is the reply to three pages of snarky conversation that exists only in an alternate dimension that I do not have access to.

Different thread, but i'm talking about the general thing where a movie gets good critical reviews but is heavily disliked by fans. Recently, those have attracted people wishing to push politics into the discussion, e.g the female Ghostbusters movie or The Last Jedi.

Batman Ninja follows the same pattern in terms of reviews (critical acclaim, heaily disliked by core fans), however there's no "angle" to hang that hook on. e.g. if someone had made a "female batman" anime, and it was disliked for the exact same reasons that Batman Ninja is disliked by average fans, then you'd have opportunist media jumping in and proclaiming all the fans to be sexist neckbeards. The only reason it's not going to happen with Batman Ninja one is because there's no angle to spin that around.

He's gonna go around telling people: 'Watashi wa Batoman desu.'
What a travesty. Almost makes me want to watch it.

There's just six critic reviews on RT so far. Too low a sample to count on as an aggregate. Of those, they mostly praise the bonkers idea and the gorgeous artwork, but there's little love for the plot.

From the trailer, it looks like a boringly typical anime fare, that takes itself way too seriously for how silly it is.
