The women (Harley aside) and the Joker really didn't look like, well, people
in the redesign. The huge heads and the weird skin-colors on Ivy and Catwoman was really off-putting to me. I didn't really like the new perma-Batman that replaced Bruce either.
Never-the-less, I still like TNBA. I like both Penguins, but I like the human Penguin slightly more. The character redesigns aren't enough to put me off it.
