The series will be directed by Bryan Lee O’Malley, who also wrote the comic series, and will serve as an executive producer and showrunner. The animation studio Science Saru, known for their work on Space Dandy and Devilman Crybaby, will be animating the series.
The plot of the series will follow Scott Pilgrim as he battles his way through Ramona Flowers’ seven evil exes, as seen in both the comic and feature-film adaptations. While the storylines will be fairly similar to previous adaptations, the anime medium allows for new opportunities and opens new doors in a fight-scene context.
Fans can expect the series to be true to the beloved story while also taking some creative liberties with the overall scale of Scott’s battles versus Ramona’s seven evil exes. While the Amanaguchi Scott Pilgrim soundtrack has not been confirmed to return, fans can expect Amanaguchi to have some musical role to play in the series.
The upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs the World anime series is highly anticipated by fans of the franchise. With a star-studded cast, experienced director and executive producer, and talented animation studio, fans can expect the series to be a worthy addition to the beloved story. The release date may still be unknown, but fans can expect the series to be available on Netflix in late 2023 or early 2024.
