Ep. 119 – BTAS – Day of The Samurai

Day of the Samurai" | DC Animated Universe | Fandom

The Good Brothers take a break from all of the sci-fi man-beasts for a good old-fashioned revenge tale. The culmination to the Batman/Ninja plot comes to an end as the hosts cover “Day of the Samurai”, the follow up to the Kyodai Ken saga that started in “Night of the Ninja.” The hosts discuss a variety including the sepia-toned bookends of the Wayne/Ken story, inconsistent animation that leads to some high highs and low lows. The hosts also discuss the cultural sensitivity for the Japanese culture being refreshing, the fantastic music and where this episode improved over the previous Ninja episode. Plus, the thread throughout that they believe could’ve been expounded on, an appreciation of Eric Rodomski’s background images, why this Batman feels truer to the character than some recent live-action portrayals, practicing the “fatal touch” as kids, and a discussion on the latest unfortunate news out of DC Comics. A full scorecard and much more await on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!
