Wow, Hall H! The biggest venue of Comic-Con was filled with Supernatural fans on the final day of the convention. On this year’s panel were Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Mark Sheppard, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, and executive producers Ben Edlund and Sera Gamble. First, the trailer of the upcoming season:

There were some great funny questions and answers during the panel. When asked why they didn’t use more of the amazing arsenal that the guys keep in the trunk of the car, Ben Edlund said that if they use grenade launchers the episodes would end too early. Maybe the ninja stars though…

Misha was asked about being called the Antichrist by a church group – “I don’t know how they figured it out.”  He was a riot when talking about playing “God,” saying he was surprised it took writers so long to write to his strengths. »

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.

The series is produced by Madhouse, an animation studio better known for titles like Vampire Hunter D (1985), Trigun (1998) and Monster (2004). This company is certainly no stranger to the science fiction/horror genre either. Their production values and their artistry is always visually striking. The tales they adapt are sometimes surreal.

In importing Eric Kripke's property, the company has instilled a unique take into the world of Supernatural. »

Those original episodes will include prologues of the Winchester brothers’ childhood, anime-only enemies, and episodes featuring secondary characters from the live-action version.

According to Zap 2 It Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles will be doing the voice work for the series' Stateside debut. Although Padalecki has signed on to dub all 22 episodes, Warner Bros. Japan »
