The anime also holds the potential to attract new fans to the Scott Pilgrim franchise. The teaser features spectacular animation and banger music, all that’s left is the humor. The creative advantage that comes along with anime as a medium is also evident in the potential action scenes.

Despite the existence of all the different mediums, Scott Pilgrim still doesn’t have a faithful adaptation of the comics. Given the time constraint of films. The anime is a great way to get closer to the comics story-wise. 

The choices made by the creators with the animation studios and the crew reflect the dedication of the team towards the anime. Bringing back the entire cast, the band, and the writers is no easy feat. And the fans are appreciating the efforts on different platforms. The reception of the teaser is a reminder of how you can never have enough of your favorite series.
