Editorial Reviews

The otherworldly TV phenomenon that is Supernatural makes history entering another world: as the first-ever live-action television show to be reimagined as an animé series. The internationally acclaimed animation powerhouse Madhouse Studios produces the show with the blessing of original series creator Eric Kripke. With storylines mirroring Supernatural’s first two seasons plus supplemental tales derived from prequels and spinoffs, this 3-Disc, 22-Episode Collection expands the dimensions of the familiar Winchester mythology. Journey down the backroads of America with brothers Sam and Dean as they search for clues to their father’s disappearance, hunt down the supernatural in all its unearthly forms and enter into the unexpected mystery of their destinies – in vibrant, exciting animé.

Format: DVD
My first ever review, and I'm writing this as if the reader is already familiar with Supernatural, so...

Yeah, I would only recommend the anime series to a diehard SPN fan, someone who wants to collect every significant scrap of lore. The show isn't bad, just not necessary.

The show does have some obvious advantages. They can draw the boys in any locale instead of trying to 'build' it in Vancouver, they can do childhood flashbacks and bring John & Mary into the story as much as they're willing to draw it. And being anime, the action is more graphic, the gore is bloodier and the monsters are far less human in appearance.

The animated episodes based on certain live-action episodes are all written a little differently to keep you guessing, but really they just remind me how much better the live-action episodes were. Even some of the cartoon's original scripts feel like retreads of the live-action series. I think it says something that to me the best episode by far is one that doesn't even feature the brothers: John tracks down another psychic kid and comes face to face with the YED. That episode more than any other left me feeling like I'd learned something new about this family.

The most irritating part by far is the voice work. Jared voices Sam, but Jensen doesn't show up to voice Dean until the final two episodes. The primary voice, Andrew Farrar, isn't bad, but it's a little jarring to hear Jared's voice dialoging with someone who's obviously not Jensen.

If you expect this show to fill in some blanks, or take the brothers' story to places the live-action show didn't or couldn't go, you'll probably be disappointed. However, if you want to see another version of this fandom brought to life because you just love all things Winchester, then maybe you should check this out.

P.S.: Jared & Jensen personally introduce each episode, and there are bonus feature interviews with both them and Kripke.

I am a 61 year old fan of the live action Supernatural TV series. Before now, I've never watched anything other than a few bits of anime so I bought this series with a little trepidation. However, it was well worth the money. If you aren't familiar with anime it is similar to watching comic book scenes in a 3D format (very simplistic description). However, this anime was so much more. It is stylized and artistic, with both bold and subtle uses of hard lines, color, and especially shadows. The characters are also fully developed. I haven't watched all of the episodes yet, but the ones that I have seen were very well done, artistic, yet easy to watch, and with very good writing. The episodes based on the live action series do not follow exactly along the same lines, which should keep the fan of the live action series watching and guessing. Each episode is about 30 minutes long. The new episodes seem to be well written, are in keeping with the original series even expanding on some of the characters we are already familiar with, and they also introduce some new monsters. With anime, there is more blood and obvious violence and the monsters are much more pronounced and for lack of a better description, monster-like.

The special features are also well worth watching. I found the two segments on making of the anime to be fascinating. I had expected most of the anime work to be done on the computer but was surprised at how much of the initial scene development was drawn and edited using pencil and paper. Some of the feature interviews are a little hard to follow since you have to read the English subtitles, but I thought it was worth the effort, and occasionally J&J or Eric Kripke will add a comment.

39 of 45 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 8, 2011
Format: DVD
I must confess, I've only seen two episodes of "Supernatural." But when I heard they were making an anime based on the first couple seasons, my interest was piqued -- and the resulting series is a dark, eerie one with golden-eyed demons, splatters of blood, and supernatural mysteries aplenty. The one major downside: at times it feels like you need to have seen the live series to understand what's going on.

Sam and Dean Winchester wander through the U.S., searching for their father and/or supernatural incidents that they can deal with (preferably before anyone gets hurt). Also, they're searching for whatever killed their mother and Sam's first love, Jessica.

Among the things they investigate: a lake monster, a murderous shapeshifter, a girl who may be a werewolf, a troubled young boy with a strange father, a bad luck demon, killer ghosts on a country road, mysterious fires at the old Winchester home, flashbacks to an encounter with "Bloody Mary," the serial-killings of blonde women, an abused boy with a strange power, and others.

But they soon discover that a devil -- a golden-eyed demon -- is following them, and he is linked to Sam and others with similar powers. When they reunite with their estranged father, they discover that there is only one thing that can stop that demon.

"Supernatural: The Anime Series" is a very dark series: lots of blood, graphic violence, and quite frequently the Winchester boys aren't able to save the people who need it most. Even the lighter episodes -- such as the lake monster episode, or the bad-luck-in-Vegas story -- have some dark undertones, and we never forget that the Winchesters are being faced with demonic evil.
