Supernatural Gets Re-Animated in Japan

With the sun having set on the fifth season of one of the most kickass horror shows ever, “Supernatural”, it’s only natural that some spin-offs start popping up.

The Japanese division of Warner Brothers is prepping “Supernatural: The Animation”, a strangely titled (oh, those wacky Japanese) 22-episode series from Madhouse, who also brought us Batman: Gotham Knight and of course Death Note.

According to the Anime News Network: “The anime project will not only remake the best episodes from the live-action version but also depict original episodes not seen in the live-action version. Those original episodes will include prologues of the Winchester brothers’ childhood, anime-only enemies, and episodes featuring secondary characters from the live-action version.”

Warner is planning on releasing the show in Japan on January 12, 2011. No word yet about Stateside distro. For more visit the “Supernatural: The Animation” website.

    Badass! This actually makes more logical sense than a Season 6. The only drawback Supernatural had was its budgets, so now they’ll be able to do large-scale insanity. And Death Note was INCREDIBLE, so if it’s the same creative team, I’m in.

    Ackles and Padelecki had better do the voices though.

    Color me interested if this is insanely unnecessary.
