Warner Bros Announces UK Release of Supernatural: The Anime Series


Warner Bros Home Video have recently announced that the Anime version of the american TV phenomenon, Supernatural, will be released onto DVD into the UK next month.

Made with the blessing and creative input of the original show’s creator, Eric Kripke, and featuring the vocal talents of the live-action series stars, this animated series brilliantly 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 expanding upon the stories of several secondary characters. The trump card, however, is the anime’s ability to go further, visually, than any live-action TV show could ever dream of going. 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.

As mentioned above, the Anime Series will feature elements taken from Season 1 and Season 2 of the real TV series as well as incorperate brand new storylines to make it an interesting experience for new and old fans alike.

The Supernatural Anime Series will feature 22 episodes and a whole host of extras, including Cast Commentaries and Interviews, across 3 DVD Discs. A Blu-ray release has not been mentioned, so its a DVD Only release, however it was released on Blu-ray in America last year.

Supernatural: The Anime Series is expected to be released on the 27th May 2013 within the UK and it can currently be pre-ordered from Amazon UK.
