In 2008, about a week before The Dark Knight hit theaters, Warner Home Video and DC Comics released Batman: Gotham Knight, an excellent collection of six anime shorts from the studios behind Ghost In The Shell [Production I.G.], Paprika [Madhouse], Steamboy [Studio 4°C], and Noir [Bee Train]. Now, ten years later, we have its spiritual successor in Batman Ninja (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack, DVD, digital; with digital 4K to come), a full-length anime movie that ranks alongside Batman: Gotham Knight as one of the most unique, intriguing, and exciting Batman animated movies.

Spirited Away is arguably one of the best animated movies of all time. But while the new Spirited Away Blu-ray — which comes in a new Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, and marks this film’s high def debut — doesn’t have any new extras, unfortunately, just having this visually-arresting film looking way better than it ever has before makes this new version a must-have.
