Warner Home Video has just added Supernatural: The Anime Series to their line-up, bringing the show to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in July.
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.
Featuring all 22 episodes of the series on three DVD discs, the release will also include the 2-part Featurette ”The Making of Supernatural: The Anime Series” as well as Interviews with Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Series Creator Eric Kripke, Directors Shigeyuki Miya and Atsuko Ishizuka and Voice Actors Hiroki Touchi and Yuuya Uchida.
Further included are Episode Introductions by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, as well as Trailers and TV Spots.
The Blu-Ray version, arriving on two discs will feature the same bonus materials, though in high definition.
“Supernatural: The Anime Series” will be in stores on July 26 for $49.99 on DVD and $54.97 on Blu-Ray Disc.
