I think the animators for this series were the ones who did animatrix. Anyway, I watched the making of this version and it sounds pretty sweet. And the voice actor of batman is Kevin Conroy who did all of the other American series such as The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, which is a plus.

The creators decided to make it anime style because they wanted to capture the emotions and presence of Batman as a character. And you know how anime characters have exaggerated facial expressions. Here's a sneek peak. These guys can explain better than I can:

EDIT: This film is supposed to take place between the live-action movie Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. So there will be no joker. Bummer.

i don't like it, this is just dc's way of trying to get more money from something that has already given them so much. now introducing the japanese for this, is a good idea but the producers will be american and they will want to do everything their way, taking just the obvious bits from the japanese and blending them with their own ideas that don't give as much anymore which makes their project useless.
This will probably turn out nice and fun, no questions about that, but the japanese like to make something out of their stuff. things created by them are their creation, their kids, not something some guy in a suit wants them to make.

how about you look at the link before commenting...
it actually looks good.

just like afro samurai
American and japanese directors and producers are working on a project, not only does it take twice as long compared to other animes, but its on an
entirely different league.

i look forward to the show...

...i got used to the old hunk bruce wayne, not the bishounen bruce wayne. bishounen looks like wimps, they only are pretty face but they're all pathetic! bishounen does not fit bruce wayne's character. the older batman shows proves the fact.

the horror of bruce wayne turned into a bishounen is now realized...

I think it must be kinda creepy (the link says that the video was deleted) because just the idea of having a American Comic story transformed in an Anime makes me think it is not even worth reading about it =/

It's not going to be transformed into an anime. It's a short movie composed of a series of Batman vignettes that is being made by DC where they have a partnership with noted Japanese animation directors.

As for my opinion of this.
Honestly.... I think it's an interesting way for Batman to enter uncharted territory. I will say that for a subject matter such as Batman I prefer the american comic book style drawing of him, but even in cartoons these days I haven't been liking the way he's being drawn. The newest The Batman cartoon which was on wb for a while seemed like it was a caricature drawing of the old batman. These character designs while not the conventional character design of Batman are much more appealing to me on an aesthetic level than the most recent Batman designs have been.
Batman is a character that can work for any and all mediums and quite frankly the animatrix is awesome. One thing, I will admit the Japanese seem better at is just simply plot.
Many of the plotlines in current cartoon shows in say the United States are woefully lacking in substance; something the Japanese with its plethora of plotlines doesn't necessarily have. Granted, that 's more than likely due to censorship laws being different in the countries, but the Japanese have been able to play psychologically with characters that I've yet to ever see in any american animated movie.
Thus, I think in terms of just developing batman and playing out the psychological torment of the character that's going to be something they're incredibly good at, something which the american system I don't know can necessarily.

I think this project will either bomb or work out very well, but either way I'm personally looking forward to it.
The Japanese drawing style is never going to be the same as the United States because the emphasis is different, but there were some pretty masculine variations of Bruce Wayne in there.
