One for the Ladies

August 21, 2008

I watched Gotham Knight, the series of anime shorts that is supposed to be the bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.  Now, I’ve never been much of a Batman fan.  I never read the comic, though I watched the TV series as a kid, and the movies from the 90’s.  But I never got excited about them.  But,it was nice to see in the anime version of the Dark Knight, that someone was looking out for us ladies.

That’s right, I’m talking about the story “Field Test”.  Never have you seen a Bruce Wayne like this!  He is absolutely beautiful.  A bishonen by all accounts.  The moment I saw him, I cried, “He’s a bishi!  It’s Bishi Bruce!”  Needless to say, my husband, a more traditional Batman fan was not amused.  I thought it was freakin’ hysterical!  Especially when he spoke with that deep, darker voice.  Kevin Conroy’s voice, even with his lightened “Bruce” tone totally did not work with that character.  He looks like he stepped out of a YAOI manga/anime!  For the rest of the episodes, I just couldn’t stop thinking about Bishi Bruce.

I wonder what kind of fanfic this is going to inspire…
