Books & Comics News || Books & Comics News:


Between a graphic novel series, a live-action movie, andan infamous video game, there have been a number of ways for fans to dive into theScott Pilgrimfranchise.As The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Friday, an anime series could soon be part of that list, with an animated project currently in the works from Netflix and Universal's UCP. Bryan Lee O'Malley, who created the original Scott Pilgrim series of graphic novels, is writing and executive producing the project alongsideAre You Afraid of the Dark's BenDavid Grabinski. The pair would showrun the series if it was greenlit. Edgar Wright, who directed and co-wrote the 2010 live-action adaptationScott Pilgrim vs. the World, will serve as executive producer alongside Nira Park, Marc Platt, Jared LeBoff, and Adam Seigel. Animation on the project will be handle by anime house Science SARU, with Abel Gongora serving as a director.

Part action fantasy, part romantic comedy,Scott Pilgrimcentered on the titular slacker living in Toronto and in a garage band named Sex Bob-Omb with his friends. His life is turned upside down when he meets Ramona Flowers, an American girl who is recently single. But before their love can blossom, Pilgrim finds himself challenged by his love's seven previous relationships, and must defeat them in over-the-top fashion. The graphic novels were originally published by Oni Press from 2004 to 2010, and spawned the aforementioned film,an infamous video game, and a legion of fans.

In a 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wright teased that an anime adaptation of the franchise might be a possibility.

"There's some plans — and there's nothing official yet — but there are some plans to revisit the material in an animation way," Wright explained at the time. "We've been talking with Bryan and with Jared for a while [about]: What if we did something with the books in anime form? It's being discussed as we speak."

Given the cult following thatScott Pilgrimhas acquired over the years, the news of a new adaptation — especially one with Science SARU involved — has gotten a lot of fans hyped. Here are just a few of those responses.

I’m ready to see Scott grapple with getting a job, dealing with old flames, moving in with Ramona, THE KATAYANAGI TWINS’ ACTUALLY SHOWING A DROP OF PERSONALITY, and everything else a movie could simply never do enough justice for.

Give me the definitive Scott Pilgrim experience. https://t.co/UxKaRZ0Ss6 pic.twitter.com/fOgfofZn8k
