'Supernatural' anime hits U.S. shelves; Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles featured
According to the press release: "SUPERNATURAL: THE ANIME SERIES revisits the Winchester brothers' journey down the backroads of America 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. The SUPERNATURAL anime episodes mirror the story arc of the series' first two seasons, providing supplemental stories ranging from prequels and spin-offs to untold tales that fit within the SUPERNATURAL mythology."
Jared Padalecki provides the voice of Sam Winchester for all 22 anime episodes, while Jensen Ackles appears as Dean in only select episodes. The animated versions of Sam and Dean have been designed to look like Padalecki and Ackles, but other characters, like Bobby and John, have been re-designed.
In the DVD set, Padalecki and Ackles provide a video intro for every episode. They're also all over the special features in a series of interviews -- as is "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke.
We'll be placing our pre-order -- we can't help but be curious about how Dean will sound with someone else's voice. Will "Supernatural The Anime Series" find a place on your shelves?
