The anime production department of Warner Bros. Japan G.K. has released the special PV, key visuals, and staff comments for the original animation “Batman Ninja vs. Yakuza League.” The production of “Batman Ninja vs. Yakuza League” was announced on May 30th, but amidst expectations from all over the world, the production was announced on July 4th (Thursday) 14:00 (July 5th (Friday) 5:00pm Japan time). 00) At North America’s largest anime convention “Anime Expo”, we held a stage event with new information.

As approximately 2,000 people filled the large hall of “The Novo,” an impressive key visual by character designer Yoshi Okazaki was projected on the screen.
In addition to Batman tying the seal, there’s Wonder Woman with an eagle tattoo and a Japanese sword in hand, Flash, who looks like a hikyaku wearing a hat, Aquaman who looks like a fisherman with a twisted headband and a trident, and Green Lantern, who looks like a courtesan with a green lantern. The shocking visual was unveiled, and the venue was filled with cheers.
The Yakuza League in the title actually refers to the Justice League, which has been corrupted by the Yakuza!
A special PV using new footage was then released, and the venue was filled with anticipation and excitement.

My name is Mizusaki and I served as co-director of “Batman Ninja vs. Yakuza League.”
Currently, we are creating an integrated and interesting version of what we received from various people, including scriptwriter Nakajima-san, character designer Okazaki-san, and music composer Kanno-san. It’s already at its best even during the production stage, so we hope to deliver it to everyone as soon as possible. This is a work I am proud of. Please look forward to!

My name is Takagi, and I joined the project as a co-director after being approached by Mr. Mizusaki. I think I had the privilege of participating in the previous work, but Mr. Mizusaki brings out an edgy direction against Nakajima’s script, which is full of
recklessness but has a detailed structure, so it was my job to make sure the work didn’t diverge. I think it’s a role. By combining the cool Okazaki design, Kamikaze Douga’s CG drawing skills, Kanno’s music, and legendary voice actors, I think it will be a Batman movie like no one has ever seen before. Please take a look when it is completed.

Screenplay: Kazuki Nakajima
I’m Kazuki Nakajima, and I was in charge of the script.
In the special PV released today, the new video part is short, but the main part lasts 90 minutes!
I think the content is so deep that it will make you dizzy, so please enjoy that feeling of intoxication.
The content is completely different from the previous work.
I think this work will be fun again, so I hope you will enjoy it.

This time, I’m Okazaki, and I was in charge of the character design for “Batman Ninja vs. Yakuza League.”
I think it’s still a long way from being able to show everyone everything, but I hope to be able to show you new visuals and designs from time to time.
Please look forward to it! !
