This. I feel the same way. Kevin Conroy IS Batman to me, just like Mark Hamill IS the Joker. These actors did a great job of defining and living their characters.
What I was disappointed with in the Batmanime was the lack of named villains. I would have LOVED for them to get the Joker in there (voiced by Hamill, of course), but that's really a pretty minor nitpick.
I remember going OH GOD WHAT at the very idea of bishie!Bruce, but, oddly enough, he kind of grew on me. That incarnation of Bruce Wayne is an interesting alternative to the usual blocky-jawed American ideal he's usually depicted as. I kept expecting his teeth to sparkle, though...
