Supernatural: The Anime series. My initial thought? OH JAPAN, BEST LULZ EVER.

Because really though this would definitely be for the lulz, since I cannot think of anyone taking this seriously. However! There are certain benefits that could come from this. I mean, think about. First of all, it could give us more of the mythology, particularly the Apocalypse and angel mythology and background and extending further than what the show provided for us, especially in this last season where it failed at giving us something more conclusive. And because of the production limitations the show has the anime could provide adding onto those things, like badass motherfucking angel wings or even more badass epic fights between angels and demons, and even fulfill certain battles that felt anticlimactic in the show itself. Never mind how they might even provide more homoerotic scenes, with the added blood/gore/violence/etc....

So, I don't really know. It's gonna be ridiculously bad and for the lulz for sure, because how can it not be? And yet these kinds of opportunities, if done well, might actually make for an intriguing thing to see. In all honesty I just wanna see what the voices are gonna be like, it'll be just as hilarious as hearing the dubbing of the actual show.

A supernatural anime could be interesting. On one hand it's not a bad idea, on the other it is. I guess we'll have to wait and see lol.

Yeah, the opinions about this are torn in half. Some are excited about it, others think it's a horrible idea. I'm just in this for the lulz. I don't really care much for anime anyway, but it'll be interesting to see what comes out from this, if anything at all. ;p

An anime series for SPN? Something to make me care enough about the actual series!

Hardcore anime dork with ten plus years under my belt, and my initial reaction to this news is:

01. Which studio's gonna be doing the animation? Cause if it's BONES, I'm gonna be all over that motherfucker.
02. Who's in charge of the music? If it's Yoko Kanno, I may very well die of glee.

WHAT ARE THE FACTS, PEOPLE? I WANT PLACES, I WANT NAMES, I WANT ALL THE INFO I CAN GET. Cause, dude. This has the potential to be absolutely ~EPIC. I'm not even kidding. Just check the openings of my top three favorite anime series of all time:

Wolf's Rain
X Television Series
Ergo Proxy

I'm not that familiar with anime, I've never really been into it. But I kinda love seeing the different sides to how fandom feels about SPN being created into one, and seriously if they get the right kind of people behind it then I think it might become something interesting.

pretty much everything you said already. i hope it doesn't end up lame like the comics
Renée: Castiel + Cell phone = OTP.rogueslayer452 on June 9th, 2010 10:07 pm (UTC)
I think from the lameness of the comics and the fail of the novelizations, I don't have any high expectations of this at all. I am just gonna sit back and see what comes from it. Which will probably be all hilarity, really. XD

It could be wonderful or horrible, lol.

However, when I think of the "free of production limitations" aspect, all I can think of is the fail of the Buffy season 8 comics.

I am getting a mental soundbite of the voices, though. Dean would be the stereotypically gruff bad boy, Sam would have a deep smooth voice, and Cas would probably end up voiced by a woman.
Renée: Castiel. I don't understand.rogueslayer452 on June 9th, 2010 10:05 pm (UTC)
It's gotten me to thinking how "true" they'll be in terms of canon, which I don't think it'll be very. It think they might just take the premise and the basic stuff we know and just use it to whatever they wish, which might be completely horrible but still for the lulz. But hey, if they add in the angels and do some pretty wicked stuff with that, then I'm all for seeing how that might turn out.

LOL That reminds me of when Misha was at a con and they showed him through a clip what he sounded like in the dubbed version. XD
Kevin Jonesmulder200 on June 9th, 2010 09:36 pm (UTC)
I have to admit I find myself intrigued! Yes, it sounds totally LOL but like you just said there is so much MORE they can do in this format than in Live Action.

Hell, at this point I need something to wash the taste of S5 out of my outh, so I am so game!
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on June 9th, 2010 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's something to really consider. I mean, it'll be nothing like the show with the actors or even the main storyline with canon and all, but that kind of freedom of not having normal television limitations like certain special effects and whatnot can be a huge plus having it in this medium.
noybusiness: lolcatbsgnoybusiness on June 9th, 2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
I think it's good idea. And a funny one.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on June 10th, 2010 05:20 am (UTC)
It's a great strategy of getting newcomers into the universe of the show, really.

That was my first thought when reading this news. Anime!Castiel! :D

1st Reaction: OH MY GOD.

See in the anime world, which studio is doing it is important. There were a handful of top studios which churns out high quality animation each season. There's the music composer, the voice actors, etc.

CAN YOU TELL HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THIS? I could pee in my pants right now. :D

I sense the wanking has commenced on this?
Renée: BSG. Cylon women are ftw.rogueslayer452 on June 10th, 2010 05:29 am (UTC)
lol, I can definitely tell you're over-the-moon about this, bb. ;)

I'm unfamiliar with the entire anime community so I'm just sitting back mulling over the idea of having a SPN anime being done, and quite frankly I'm not bothered by it. I think it can go either way of being hilariously bad or surprisingly good depending on, like you said, the studio involvement and everything else.

There's already some dividing opinions in fandom because of this. But it's not like this is going to be ruining the show's canon that we know it so, I'm not particularly worried either way.

I'm going to have to chime in also with a 'It could be awesome or awful'.

And it really depends on the talent they put on it. Supernatural had a pretty decent following in Japan last I knew; at least they were decently represented in doujin, which is how I measure popularity.

And Japan is open to fanservice AND readily available yaoi. So, who knows, maybe Cas/Dean would be canon in Japan. Or *shudder* Sam/Dean since that was the hot pairing last I knew. (that was before season 4 came out, so there could have been a OTP shift following Cas's entrance)

... Sam's hair looks like Spike's from Cowboy Bebop to me.

The thing that I pointed out in the comment above is that I'm very unfamiliar with the entire anime community, I have absolutely no idea about the deciding factor and all this stuff that many people are talking about. All I know is that this can definitely go horribly wrong or surprise us all.

Heh, I'm actually hoping for more of the Dean/Cas because, hello, OTP right there (and the eyefucking would be even more poignant in this format, from the exposure I've seen from certain anime stuff). But who knows? Perhaps they'll go for the fanservice from all sides, which I don't necessarily complain about because it makes everyone happy. Of course, if they are doing Castiel/the angel stuff that is; we don't know if this will have all the mythology or just focus on Sam and Dean, which I hope not. The mythology is far too amazing to not be animated like this. And I keep thinking back to Angel Sanctuary, the only manga/anime thing I was interested in at a time.

... Sam's hair looks like Spike's from Cowboy Bebop to me.

lol, you're like the third person to mention this. XD

There's no way it's gonna be good. I may not even watch it for the lulz; I might get embarrassment squicked!

...I'll watch it if Cas is in it, though. SIGH.
Renée: Dean/Castiel.rogueslayer452 on June 10th, 2010 05:19 am (UTC)
That's my thing, too. I'll probably see what it's like, but mostly if Castiel's in this I'm definitely watching for sure. Also, if they do have Cas I hope there's mountains of Dean/Cas scenes.
(Deleted comment)
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Dominance.rogueslayer452 on June 10th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
More Dean/Cas stuff is guaranteed with that. ;)
