'Supernatural: The Anime' Comes Home on Blu-Ray


Last year, we told you about an anime series based on the Supernatural television series.  The cartoon did well in Japan, and will finally be available on blu-ray and DVD here in the States.  Hit the jump for all the details.

The 22-episode series "revisits the Winchester brothers' journey down the backroads of America as they search for clues to their father's disappearance, hunt down the supernatural in all its unearthly forms, and enter into the unexpected mystery of their destinies. The Supernatural anime episodes mirror the story arc of the series' first two seasons, providing supplemental stories ranging from prequels and spin-offs to untold tales that fit within the Supernatural mythology."  Jared Padalecki voices his character Sam for all 22 episodes, and co-star Jensen Ackles voices select episodes of the series as his character, Dean.

Extras on the discs include featurettes on turning the live-action series into anime, live-action introductions to each episode, and interviews with Padalecki, Ackles, and series creator Eric Kripke.

Supernatural: The Anime will be available for purchase on July 26th, 2011.
