The opening theme for the upcoming anime adaptation of Scott Pilgrim has been released. The opening theme is titled “Bloom” and performed by Japanese rock band, Necry Talkie. Science SARU is animating the series which will premiere on Netflix on November 17. The anime is bringing back the actors from the 2010 movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to voice their characters.
The key people involved in the anime adaptation’s production include Eunyoung Choi as producer and Abel Góngora as director. Edgar Wright, Nira Park, Marc Platt, Jared LeBoff, Adam Seigel, and Michael Bacall will also receive executive producer credits for the series. The official X (Twitter) account also teases “all-new Anamanaguchi music.”
Scott Pilgrim focuses on the story of part-time musician Scott Pilgrim, who resides in Toronto, Ontario, and plays bass in a band. One day, he falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona Flowers, but he must defeat Flowers’ seven evil exes in order to date her properly.
The franchise started as six black-and-white volumes, originally released by comic book publisher Oni Press. The graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley were later republished by HarperCollins’ Fourth Estate and got full-color editions via Nathan Fairbairn, released from August 2012 to April 2014.
Besides the 2010 movie, several spin-offs came off from the franchise, including the game Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu in 2010. Despite being unlisted in 2014, the game got a re-release titled “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition” on January 14, 2021.
