Synopsis

Based on the live-action CW show Supernatural, the anime will be a 22-episode season that will cover the storyline of the live-action version's first two seasons.

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.

Before starting, I should note that I am a fan of the TV series, but I will review the anime as a standalone piece. I will put myself in the shoes of someone, who has never heard of Supernatural and evaluate its merits and faults from there.

Story: 7/10
The story is simple and easy to follow. It is about Sam and Dean, two brothers who hunt demons and evil spirits. Most of the episodes are following the “monster of the week” formula… but there is a general plotline that advances slowly throughout the series. There is also a main villain and the Winchester brothers have a read more

I watched the first episode after following progress and being excited about an anime version of my favorite TV show for a very long time. I was not disappointed. Even though it starts off rather different from the show it still feels very similar. The first episode still gives us the basics of the plot, Mary Winchester was killed by the yellow eyed demon when Sam was only 6 months old. But this is seen as a dream by Sam in the Impala on their way to a case (later Sam also sees a dream of Jessica's death). The first episode is an adaptation of read more

Recommendations

Both series are about a pair of brothers fighting against demons. The older brother Dean is more the action kind of guy, attack first, ask questions later, which is like Rin. Sam the younger brother is the more reserved thinking brother. Sam also is very smart and tends to use research and intelligence against enemies rather than brute strength like Dean (though they both kick some serious ass regardless). This is quite a bit like Yukio. In Supernatural one brother also shares a strong connection to demons and Lucifer (Satan) in particular (not going to give away which one). The other brother often tells his demonically inclined brother that he shouldn't use demon powers and that they'll corrupt him (sound familiar?).

In particular there's actually a scene in episode 24 of Ao no Exorcist (spoilers if you haven't watched it all yet) where Yukio is possessed by Satan and when Rin comes to save him Satan starts beating the crap out of Rin but Rin refuses to harm Yukio and believes his younger brother has to be in there still and can hear him and overcome Satan. Though the Supernatural anime has yet to get that far in the story yet, in the original tv series of the same name there's a scene remarkably similar to this one in Ao no Exorcist. BTW Supernatural came first and is a big hit in Japan which actually lead to the anime series being made (a first of it's kind, an anime adaptation of an American live action tv series) so I've actually wondered a few times if they didn't base that scene on the scene from Supernatural.

Anyways if you like series that follow brothers and deal with the supernatural then this is definitely one to try.
If you love Supernatural animes with exciting actions in them, you'll like this
