      Good for the off-seasons

      I bought this item on sale for ten bucks, but it's at least worth twenty. This isn't the greatest series I've watched, but it was good. I'm a huge fan of the live action Supernatural and it was cool seeing the show taken in a diferent light. If you expect just a remake of seasons 1 and 2 in anime, don't. The writers put extra effort in making new anime originals and they even change around shows from the actual series. Sometimes the changes are good and sometimes they're bad. For example, this series leaves out pivital set pieces, such as the Hunters bar and the characters in it, and puts new ones in. They also changed around the designs of the characters, including John Winchester and Bobby. John I could live with, he's still a tough looking SOB, but Bobby looks more like your jolly fat uncle. It's the wrong design for his character. Sometimes, characters should be left alone. Anyway, good news is that the designs for Sam and Dean are the same, mannerisms and everything. My biggest gripe about this series is the voice actor for Dean. He's okay, but don't be decieved by the cover, Jensen A. only does the last two episodes, that's it. Even though the episodes he did were great (last two shows of season 2), I definately wanted more. As a result of Jensen A.'s absence, the series does suffer, especially when it came to emotional scenes. I've always found that anime is great in action and not much else. That especially ran true for this series. When there were serious/emotional scenes, I couldn't help but feel arkward. The only epsiodes that held the best mixture was the last two (surprise surprise). Look, I did like this series and it is a good subst. for the live action during a off-season. The effects were great, and the writers went all out in the anime orginals. The series does offer a comical episode like the tv series does, and in parts it does ring true. Jared P. doing his voice as Sam was great and he was the only character that sounded real. All the other characters had typical anime voiceovers. The men were mostly boring, and the women all had that innocent fake sound to them. The special features are good if your into watching behind the scenes stuff, but be warned, since this show was converted to English, most of the scenes are in subtitles. It can get kind of annoying trying to read subtiltles while watching what is one the screen. On the other hand, there are introductions to every episode by Jared P and Jensen A. They give a brief idea of what the episode is, what it's based on, and sometimes a few other comments. Anyway, Supernatual the anime series is a decent pick, and overall its fun to watch. It's a anime show though, so if you don't like anime, this might not be the pick for you, even if your a fan of the show.

      I purchased this movie as a sweet 16 gift. My niece loves anime stuff and I figured what better gift to get her. We've watched it several times.
