Supernatural Anime

So we love us some Supernatural (even if we were pretty underwhelmed with the season finale this year), but a Supernatural anime? This just seems kinda strange.

MADHOUSE, the anime studio behind projects like Death Note and Vampire D is producing Supernatural: The Animation, which will be comprised of a 22-episode season that will cover the storyline of the first two years of the live-action series. However, while some episodes will remake episodes from the original series, other stories will be brand new, and include, "prologues of the Winchester brothers' childhood, anime-only enemies, and episodes featuring secondary characters from the live-action version."
Supernatural: The Animation will be released on DVD in Japan starting with the first volume on January 12th

Supernatural has a huge scope, anime like story arc so I'm not worried that it won't be a good translation, my main concern is the music. The soundtrack to Supernatural is 70's rock like AC/DC and Blue Oyster Cult, so I'm a little afraid of anime Sam and Dean fighting the Hook Man with J-POP in the background. Of course by the time it gets to America we'll be lucky if the music isn't replaced with rap! (ala DB:GT)

Since this will be an anime version, expect the demons to be a lot hornier (and I don't mean actually having horns, though they might) with long gross tenticles that, believe me, you don't want to see where they've been (or where they're going)! Also, maybe the Colt and the Demon killing knife will be merged into some sweet Final Fantasy evil killing gun sword? One can only hope!
