SPN News for the week of YAY the show's back!

The 22-episode anime series based on Supernatural is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on July 26, here in the U.S. You can read details of the set here. The main storyline follows seasons 1 and 2, but includes new stories.

Misha Collins tweeted a cast-and-crew photo, possibly from the wrap of season 6.

It seems they've changed the order of upcoming episodes, according to a Zap2it article. SPOILERS Whew. I thought I was nuts, that the preview they showed at the end of the last episode was NOT the same preview they've shown for the last few weeks. I'm still a little confused, between the episode title and the images, but I'm sure all will become clear. :)

Dean (Jensen Ackles) is up against Glee's Blaine (Darren Criss) in Kristin-from-E!Online's Alpha Male Madness showdown finale. I'm sorry, I love Blaine/Darren Criss, but alpha male? Not in this universe. Vote for Dean! Poll closes tomorrow.

Buddy TV posted some fan-generated ideas for a Supernatural spinoff.

Jim Beaver returned to his alma mater, the University of Central Oklahoma, to star in a play, "The Guys."

The show returns this week with "My Heart Will Go On." With one exception (May 13), we get new episodes straight through to the season finale. Hopefully, by then we'll know if we get a season 7!

I agree 100% with everything you said about Darren Criss. Love him, but voted for Jensen. As if there's any competition!!

Love Blaine, but how did he ever get nominated in an alpha male contest? I just saw this, unfortunately so I didn't get over to vote.

Supernatural is an anime? Don't know if I'll be able to watch that. One of my fave authors turned her books into manga. I didn't recognize the characters at all because they were drawn as androgynous, super thin creatures with hair down to their ankles. Nothing like they were described in the books.

Melissa, I don't think most people really know what "alpha" means. LOL

I have similar reservations about the anime, but I'm going to give it a try anyway, if I can, because it's Sam and Dean and Jared does Sam's voice and Jensen mostly does Dean's voice. If the art or stories deviate too far, or--more importantly--if the style of animation annoys me, I won't bother.

Like any art, anime/manga appeals to some and not others.

Well, if Jared and Jensen are participating, then I have got to watch the anime. I like anime, I grew up on Speed Racer, but I guess it's the idea of it being my favorite show turned into anime. I don't know if that makes sense, but all I can do is try it and see. :) Thanks, Natalie!

Yeah, I know what you mean, Melissa. :)
