Scott Pilgrim Really Does Take Off

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is the newest TV show created from the Scott Pilgrim comics
New animated TV show appears on Netflix. Based off an original show this set of episodes didn’t disappoint.

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is the long-awaited reimagining of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World that is full of love. created by Abel Gongora, who also created Star Wars Visions. The show is completely animated, and all the actors from the movie have returned to play their parts.

The story of Scott Pilgrim in the movie and comic is about a guy named Scott Pilgrim having to fight seven evil exes to get with the girl of his dreams. But the story of the show is significantly different from the original story because the trailers did not make that clear, so don’t go in expecting that. Although the plot feels like the next step in the show actually focuses more on Ramona investigating Scott’s disappearance and the aftermath of his disappearance, this is an interesting way to keep this story fresh. This also causes the exes and side characters to become more fleshed out, like in Matthew Pattel’s story arc, going more in depth about Roxie’s and Ramona’s relationship and giving more character to Gideon Graves, which makes you sympathize more with the exes.

While we are talking about characters, it’s important to know that most of the line delivery is amazing, and it feels like the actors loved playing the roles they were given. However, the show would have benefited from more episodes with spoilers about Scott being in the future or an episode going over Scott’s future life to see how he got the way he is, but it’s not a dealbreaker, and the plot is still good. characters,

The animation is amazing and really feels like it captures the anime feeling that they were going for in the movie and comic. A great example of this well-done animation is Ramona dying her hair, which just looks nice to look at and also helps show the passage of time in the story. The fight scenes also feel a lot more fun to watch because they’re over the top, which works a lot better than the movie version’s fight scenes. Some fight scenes also feel very creative compared to the movie, like Lucas Lee’s skateboard fight against the paparazzi or Roxi and Ramona’s fight in multiple movies.

All in all, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is a good show to watch if you liked the original or the book or are just interested in watching something that is mainly comedic.
