Scott Pilgrim Takes Off Review — A-

What if Scott Pilgrim died in his first fight?

I barely remember the movie (haven’t seen it since it came out) but this ruled so hard. I’m kind of shocked. What makes it feel so unique I think is how it’s an international collaboration. It’s animated by Science Saru (heavily influence by the original comic I assume? haven’t read it) and has an American / Canadian sense of humor. It’s probably just because it’s my own culture  but I think it’s much funnier than most anime due to that.

The take on romance is a very Canadian take as well which I appreciated. You never see exes in anime…

I highly recommend this, it’s absolutely not the same as the movie (which you should probably watch / rewatch first).

  • Storytelling – A – Very well written.
  • Voice – A – What style.
  • Characters – A – Love them. My favorite is Julie lol.
  • Attention Grab – A – Couldn’t stop watching.
  • Production – A – Looks amazing.
  • Overall – A-

Recommendations – Watch the Scott Pilgrim movie first!
