Last June we told you about a new animated series based upon the hit television series here in the States, “Supernatural”. Though details were thin, we’ve finally gotten our hands on a preview for you! Dig it!
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.
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.
According to Zap 2 It Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles will be doing the voice work for the series’ Stateside debut. Although Padalecki has signed on to dub all 22 episodes, Warner Bros. Japan says Ackles will only voice his character Dean in the final two. “Supernatural: The Animation” is set for initial release in Japan on February 23rd, and a U.S. version is expected to be released on DVD, though no release date has been announced.
Supernatural creator Eric Kripke is credited as creator of the anime, which is co-directed by Shigeyuki Miya (Lupin III: Green vs Red, Aoi Bungaku Series) and Atsuko Ishizuka (Aoi Bungaku Series).
