Yes, you read that right. If you didn’t know or didn’t care for it, The CW’s Supernatural series was made into an anime. The Series basically follows the first two seasons of Supernatural where there the brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, search for their father after he goes missing. Even though this is a re-telling of the two seasons, there are also some original tales like the boys childhood, anime-only enemies and some of the secondary charaters as well as the other stuff and it has the privileged of being the first anime based from a ongoing live action series. More on that after the break.
I haven’t checked it out really because I’ve been busy but now it’s being released over here stateside straight to DVD. It also just happens to not only be animated by Mad House but the voice actors from the show, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are doing the voices…well, Padalecki is doing the voice while Ackles is doing the last two episodes due to time. So far, the only way to see it is if you catch it on DVD or download it from Itunes…or other means…but if you are a fan of Supernatural, a fan of anime, both, or just couldn’t get into Supernatural but wouldn’t mind watching it in an anime format, this does seem like a pretty cool thing to watch. I might check it out and have a review. Supernatural: The Animation will be released July 26th, 2011.
