In new poster art produced by one of the show’s stars, the whole primary cast of Supergirl season 6 has been reinvented as anime characters. The show, which premiered in 2015, will soon come to a close with the broadcast of its last thirteen episodes weekly over the next few months.
Supergirl Season 6, part 1 premiered earlier this year, before putting on hiatus for a few months due to the effects of coronavirus, as well as star Melissa Benoist’s pregnancy. Since then, fans have been eagerly anticipating Season 6, Part 2 in order to finally find answers to their pressing questions.
Supergirl is a superhero show set in the Arrowverse that first aired on CBS before switching to The CW. It follows Kara Danvers, Superman’s biological cousin, as she embarks on her own superhuman adventures.
After Supergirl and Zor-El (Jason Behr) managed to leave the Phantom Zone at the end of Supergirl season 6, episode 7, “Fear Knot,” the heroes will return to National City in the second half of the season.
Benoist reprises her role as Supergirl alongside series regulars Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers/Sentinel, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, and Jesse Rath as Querl Dox/Brainiac, all determined to forget about the Phantom Zone and the experiences she had there.
Nicole Maines, who has recently demonstrated that she has many more hidden talents than her acting ability, reprises her role as Nia Nal/Dreamer in Season 6, Part 2.
Nicole Maines’ gorgeous, anime-styled reinterpretation of the season 6 cast of Supergirl, which she had initially developed for the show’s cast and crew wrap T-shirts, was shared via her Twitter account.
Take a look at the design below:
Maines has redesigned Supergirl’s major characters into stylized anime versions, including Supergirl, Sentinel, Dreamer, and Brainiac 5, to mention a few, along with their characteristic talents and capabilities on display, focusing on the show’s main ensemble.
Supergirl is seen in the center of the poster, demonstrating her trademark power of flying, while Dreamer is shown manipulating Oneiric energy. The Guardian shield is wielded by Kelly Olsen (Azie Tesfai), who takes over the role of Guardian this season, while Sentinel uses her Hand of the Soldier to conjure a whip.
As Supergirl approaches the end of its sixth season, many fans will be wondering if the universe and characters they’ve grown to know and love over the last six seasons can be continued in any fashion.
With the growing number of firms attempting to get into the anime industry, as well as the generally positive reaction of DC’s animated films and TV shows, such as Harley Quinn, now appears to be the ideal time for DC to start producing its own anime titles.
Apart from Batman: Gotham Knight and Batman Ninja, DC have never truly committed to a dedicated anime series based on one of their characters.
As a result, adopting a popular show like Supergirl into an anime could provide DC the boost they need to properly establish themselves in the anime market.
