Supernatural The Anime Series takes scripts from different seasons of the TV horror series. If you are a fan of the original, the anime series is fun in a déjà vu kind of way. If you are a casual viewer, Supernatural The Anime Series is enjoyable if you do not mind the odd plot hole. This Blu-ray set features 22 episodes on 2 Blu-ray or 3 DVD discs.
Most of the anime episodes are adaptations of seasons 1 and 2 of the original Supernatural. Since the original was an hour long show and these anime shows are a half hour long the writers took a few shortcuts. This explains some of the holes in the story These get in the way only if you are looking for more than a scary anime show.
The better episodes in Supernatural The Anime Series are those that were written specifically for this series. There are nine of them.
Episode 12, Darkness Calling, features John Winchester in a complete episode involving a young woman cursed at birth by the devil. It is pretty cool but you wish it continued.
Most of the 22 episodes on Supernatural The Anime Series are pretty good but a couple, like In My Time Of Dying are badly written and over the top.
Stay tuned after the closing credits for an extra twenty seconds of story development.
Jared Padalecki who played Sam Winchester in the TV series does the voice for his animated twin. Jensen Ackles does the voice of Dean but only in the last two episodes. The actors introduce each episode, sometimes individually.
Oddly enough the subtitles do not quite match the dialogue.
Special features for Supernatural The Anime Series Blu-ray are a Making Of, Episode Introductions by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, Interviews with the two Japanese voice actors, and Japanese Trailer and TV spot.Supernatural Blu-ray - The Complete Fifth Season
