Finished Scott Pilgrim. Highly recommend you do the same, without looking up *anything* else about it
It feels more like a spiritual sequel to FLCL than any of the actual sequels to FLCL pic.twitter.com/fDqZ07Emet

Overwhelmingly, Netflix has seemingly found success, as people heap praise upon the series for its creative direction; remixing the film and original books into a more unique experience. However, some still had some minor critiques for the series.

Okay so Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is not an adaptation that closely follows the comics or the movie. It is more a meta reimagining of the original story that makes some interesting changes. People are inevitably gonna have split opinions. I for one think it’s great! pic.twitter.com/6qdwNxrz9D

Nonetheless, the consensus is clear: Scott Pilgrim is taking off once again and we’re here for this new era nearly 15 years later!
