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.
