Supernatural: The Animation: Impressions of Madhouse's Graphic Creations

10 March 2011 2:10 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Created by: Eric Kripke.

Directors: Shigeyuki Miya, and Atsuko Ishizuka.

Executive Producer: Masao Maruyama.

Character Designer: Takahiro Yoshimatsu.

Debuting to select audiences and currently available in Japan is Supernatural: The Animation. The first few episodes are now out on Blu-ray and DVD. Expectations are high that this series will soon see a North American release. In what is currently available, the show has both an English and Japanese voice track. All 22 episodes are tentatively expected to be available, direct to video, by April 2011.

In the English language version, Warner Bros. Japan confirms that Padalecki has signed on to dub all 22 episodes as Sam Winchester. Dean, however, may sound a little different - Ackles has signed on to voice only 2 of the episodes. He'll be heard on the final episodes... presumably in which Dean trades his soul for Sam's life. There's no word yet on who will fill in for the other 20 episodes, but we hope he's ready to get his growl on.

In the Japanese version, Sam and Dean Winchester will be voiced by Yuya Uchida and Hiroki Touchi, respectively. They're also the voice-actors who dub over the »
