Supernatural Goes Anime in 2011

Well this is interesting. Cinema Today is reporting that highly acclaimed Japanese anime studio Madhouse is producing a 22 episode season of Supernatural that will cover the first two seasons of the cult CW demon-hunting favourite starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. According to their website, this would be the first overseas drama to ever be developed by a Japanese animation studio.

‘Supernatural the Animation’ will not only remake episodes of its live-action source, but will also contain original stories never seen before. The new original episodes will focus on the boys’ young lives and the adventures of secondary characters. It’s coming to Japan in DVD and Blu-ray formats on January 11, 2011. Warned Home Video is behind the release, and Supernatural mastermind Eric Kripke is credited as the anime’s creator, which bodes well for those hoping the series is kept firmly in the show’s continuity.

According to the Anime News Network —


The first volume will ship on January 12 with the first two episodes. On February 2, the “Box 1” set will ship with episodes 3 to 12. On April 6, the “Box 2” set will ship with episodes 13 to 22. (There will be a different release schedule for the rental version of the project.)

Shigeyuki Miya (Lupin III: Green vs Red, Aoi Bungaku Series, Buzzer Beater) and Atsuko Ishizuka (Aoi Bungaku Series) are co-directing the project. MADHOUSE co-founder Masao Maruyama is serving as executive producer. Naoya Takayama (Night Head, Liar Game) is supervising the series’ scripts, and Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Trigun) is designing the characters.

Supernatural returns this fall for its sixth season.
