Not sure this is going to be any good but it might be weird enough that it doesn't matter. I'm intrigued.

It looks interesting enough, I want it to be good. But who am I kidding, it couldn't be any worse than Batman and Harley Quinn and I paid to see that so I'll watch this too.

This is from the same artist who designed Afro Samurai, so it should be excellent as far as the art goes.

Oh ha ha ha... Why do you guys always have to make fun of Skrillex?*

Also, even though this is from Japan, I keep thinking that there is some form of cultural appropriation going on here and that I should be offended.

*It's a joke. Skrillex does dub-step, "cheesy dubs", get it? get...? ah nevermind...

You are confused because your ideas of what distinguish ninja and samurai are wrong, and have been taught to you by people who did not know better themselves.

This reminds me of the type of anime that was really popular in the early to mid nineties. That is to say, stuff where nobody cared if the story was any good as long as something weird and cool was happening on screen every ten seconds or so.

Teach me, master!


*edit

Could Batman as a samurai be fighting mostly ninja's and THAT is why it's named so?

He's right that the modern conception of a NInja isn't what Ninja were like, but that doesn't really explain Batman Ninja any.

Ninja were just assassins. So just like most modern assassins, they wore regular clothes that were inconspicuous.

The modern conception of what Ninja are thought to look like derives from Kabuki and Bunraku theatre where stagehands, meant to be ignored, would dress head to toe in black cloth garments.

I don't see the assassin tie in with the stagehands. How did that come about?

Maybe someone pissed off one of the stagehands and there was a bad one-sided fight? They were already mad that they were just crew and not actors like they all wanted to be. Never anger the help.

Well, the idea was that, much like western society, people got their idea of what certain things looked like from seeing them recreated in plays and movies. People knew that ninja existed intellectually, but they didn't ever actually SEE ninja creeping around. So when plays called for royals or damiyos to be assassinated, an assassin would come on stage to do the business. They costumed the assassin's in the stage version of what it meant to be "invisible", which was similar to what stagehands wore.



It's a slightly similar concept to how our movie version of a "spy" is a dashing, conspicuous overly-dressed man in a tuxedo. In reality, a spy would go out of his way to be as inconspicuous as possible, flying in the rear of the plane, wearing old clothes and possibly appearing slow witted or disabled in some way.
