The Winchester Bros. are Animated in New Supernatural Series

As Dean and Sam Winchester (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) prepare to embark on their sixth season of Supernatural, there’s something brewing in Japan.

The Japanese division of Warner Bros. has a website up for Supernatural: The Animation, a 22-episode series from Madhouse (Batman: Gotham Knight, Death Note).

According to the Anime News Network: “The anime project will not only remake the best episodes from the live-action version, but also depict original episodes not seen in the live-action version. Those original episodes will include prologues of the Winchester brothers childhood, anime-only enemies, and episodes featuring secondary characters from the live-action version.”

Warner Home Video is aiming to start releasing these in Japan on January 12, 2011. No word yet on the U.S. release.

The Winchester universe just got a bit bigger…
