The graphic novels followed the kooky Scott, an idler and bassist living in Toronto. He falls head-over-heals for a girl named Ramona Flowers, but is given the task to defeat her seven evil exes in order to be with her.
Six volumes of the graphic novel have been published, with the latest one released in 2010. The film adaptation was made in 2010 after the last novel was published and has gained a major cult following since its release.

Multiple OG fans had questions as to whether or not Anamanaguchi would be returning to do the soundtrack for the series. In response, Wright replied “You will be very happy,” via Twitter. On social media Anamanaguchi confirmed they not only did the soundtrack, but that they’ve been working on original music for the past year. “Not much more we can say about it for now… but HOW ABOUT THAT CAST??????????? I think this might be good everybody”
In a press release, Wright called the original film “one of the proudest and most enjoyable achievements of [his] career.” He added. “Since the film’s release in 2010 we’ve done Q&A’s, remembrances and charity read throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the whole gang on an actual project. Until now… Original creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, along with writer BenDavid Grabinski have conjured up an anime series of ‘Scott Pilgrim’ that doesn’t just expand the universe, but also…well, just watch it. I’m more than happy to announce that I have helped coax the entire original cast back to voice their characters on this epic new adventure. You are in for a treat.”
