Netflix anime productions are very popular, so it’s no wonder the platform often focuses on the genre. Currently, the owners of the site are working on a project that tells about the adventures of Scott Pilgrim.
The series does not have an official title yet. It is known, however, that it will derive from the source material, the comic book series by Brian Lee O’Malley. The series is a co-production between Netflix and UCP Universal. The project is currently in an early stage of development and has yet to receive an official season order.
This wouldn’t be Mallley’s first comedy adaptation. Scott Pilgrim has already become a Ubisoft video game hero. Scott Pilgrim vs the World was also filmed about him, directed by Edgar Wright.
The anime’s script was written by Malley himself, who will also serve as executive producer and show director alongside BenDavid Grabinski. The Japanese studio Science SARU will be responsible for the animation.
Scott Pilgrim’s life is completely carefree. She is 23 years old, she plays bass in a rock band and is dating an adorable high school girl. But his whole life so far is turned upside down when he falls in love with Ramona’s stunning flowers. To get the girl, he would have to, literally, defeat seven of her bad ex-boyfriends.
