Recommended if you have not seen the TV show, 26 June 2011
Author: Peter Hollo from Hungary

I checked some of the reviews and it seems a lot of people dislike the idea of making an anime spin-off for Supernatural. We get one season (at this point the original show finished it's 6th one) and each episode is quite short with their twenty or so minutes compared to the original's 45-50-minute episodes.

Still, I can safely say it works! I wanted to know what this show was about (the characters, the story) so I decided to give it a try by checking Mad House's piece of work at first. 20 minutes was perfectly enough to tell a story and 1 season could easily summarise the life of the Winchester brothers and their fight against vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, what-have-you.

I was already familiar with Mad House's style in terms of anime: some of the episodes can get quite bloody and of course it is highly recommended to watch the anime in Japanese with English subtitles. I have to admit sometimes it was hard not to laugh when hearing the voice actors pronounce American names, places, etc. (even the curses are pronounced in English sometimes, deliberately).

Some of the guys here criticised the animation - please, it is top-notch for an anime, the only issues here are the overly used dark colours; most of the scenes take place at night. And like I said: the episodes are short and we have only one season.

I don't like starting to watch a new show with its half-a-dozen seasons without knowing how good it will be. Supernatural - The Animation superbly summed up Supernatural so right after I finished the show I moved on to its predecessor. The anime perfectly sums up what you can expect from the show it was based on - highly recommended, especially if you are into anime.
