Supernatural from TV Series to Anime

This is a big buzz in the anime world, and it’s been around for almost two weeks, Supernatural the TV series is adapted by the Japanese studio Madhouse  to create the anime version. It’s very rare to see that anime get their story based on a western TV series.

The anime will be a 22-episode season that will cover the storyline of the live-action version’s first two seasons. 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.)

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.

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke is credited as the anime project’s creator, and 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.
