Episode 82 is here and it finds the Good Brothers wrapping up their stay in the retro-futuristic Gotham City of Batman: The Animated Series. This week the boys review “Night of the Ninja”, a tale that sheds some light on Bruce Wayne’s past and part of how he trained to become the Batman. Our hosts discuss the choice to make Kyodai Ken’s motivation go beyond straight revenge, another reference to a Batman ’66 plot device, more fleshing out of the Robin character, why Bruce was needlessly secretive about the Ninja and the uncharacteristic respect paid to Japanese culture found in this cartoon compared to others at the time. All of this, plus a breakdown of the excellent soundtrack and a full scorecard on this week’s DCAU Review!
