Brilliant Adaptation
9 September 2011 | by terryfoskettSee all my reviews

I am a massive Supernatural fan, and I have to say the anime adaptation to the original storyline of seasons 1 and 2 is brilliant, it explains everything and more of the original series. When I say it explains more I mean the episodes in which Dean and John (Sam and Deans dad) are hunting something together whilst Sam is only just meeting Jessica (Sams girlfriend who died) at college, this gives you a deeper understanding of all of their past and also a deeper understanding of the relationships between characters in which you did not get to see in the original series.

However, each episode of the original series was around 40mins (minus TV Ads) with 22 episodes which is 44 episodes in 2 seasons, this anime adaptation is around 20mins long (Minus TV ads) and only 22 episodes adapting the original series season 1 and 2 which would have been hard to do in 1 season of 22 40min long episodes so its even harder to cram it all into 22 episodes lasting 20mins, so because of that some of the detail from the original series has been removed or rushed.

I think Sam and John are played really well Sam's voice is the original seasons star Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam just as well animated or on the live-action show. I was a little disappointed in Deans character, in the original season Dean is physically tough, Mentally Strong and the best hunter you can find, where as in the animated version he is still physically tough but nowhere near as mentally strong as in the original (he cries a lot) and they make him out to be a sloppy hunter too. Bobby is the worst adaptation by far, not involved enough and nowhere near his character in the original.

All in all I thought it was a brilliant adaptation. Same brilliant storyline but episodes are not exactly the same, which helps if you are a supernatural fan that has watched the original, if you have never seen supernatural the original I Don't KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH YOUR LIFE, you should watch that before you watch this. THOROUGHLY ENJOYED
