Supernatural: The Animated Series Coming In May

Warner Bros has announced that they will be releasing Supernatural: The Animated Series on DVD on 27 May 2013.

Directed by Shigeyuki Miya and Atsuko Ishizuka, the anime was made with the blessing and creative input of the original TV show's creator, Eric Kripke, and features the vocal talents of the live-action series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.

For those new to the show, it follows the adventures of brothers Sam and Dean Winchester.

After losing their mother under mysterious paranormal circumstances, young Sam and Dean are raised by their father.

Driven by revenge, Winchester Senior becomes obsessed with hunting and destroying the supernatural creatures that target humans.

Years later when their father mysteriously disappears, the Winchester brothers decide to follow in his footsteps, traveling the back-roads, highways and byways of America in search of answers and vengeance.

It is a journey that brings them face-to-face with unimaginable horrors, from demons and vampires to ghosts and shape-shifters.

The anime series covers the events of the first two seasons of Supernatural by recreating many of the original episodes while also introducing a whole batch of brand new material that explores the Winchesters' previously unseen childhoods and expands upon the stories of many secondary characters.

Produced by Madhouse Studios, the anime has the ability to go further with the visuals than any live-action TV show could ever attempt.

The result makes for essential viewing for committed Supernatural fans and provides an ideal primer and introduction for those yet to become possessed by the haunting and action-packed saga of the Winchesters.
