#Supernatural: The characters are the lifeblood

I am mecha excited by the news (extensively covered by @SuperWiki) that Supernatural is getting the anime treatment.

MADHOUSE will produce 22 episodes set during Seasons 1 and 2, and due for release in January 2011.  It will be a combination of canon and stories written specifically for the anime series.

I kind of love the entire concept, and I'm heartened by the fact that directors Miya Shigeyuki and Ishizuka Atsuko come across as total fanboys in a recent interview on the anime site.  Best of all, they really seem to "get" what the show is all about.
What are the highlights the Directors would impress upon?
Miya: "That's a difficult one. Like the original series that has everything, please enjoy the world of Supernatural. We're going to have fun with it too (laughs)"
Ishizuka: "Whatever the case, the characters are the lifeblood! Please enjoy watching Sam and Dean!"
I want to embroider that last bit on a pillow.  The translated text can be found here, courtesy of focaccina.
