Everything Is Totally Sweet
Scott Pilgrim’s life is so awesome. He’s 23 years old, in a rock band, “between jobs,” and dating a cute high school girl. Everything’s fantastic until a seriously mind-blowing, dangerous fashionable, rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. But the path to Ms. Flowers isn’t covered in rose petals. Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends stand in the way between Scott and true happiness. Can Scott beat the bad guys and get the girl without turning his precious little life upside-down?

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. This is Scott Pilgram. This is your life.

What happens....so we enter into the world of Scott Pilgram and it’s....ah....
I love it. It’s deep in that air-headed type of way. It’s funny and it’s just this style, not only in the way it’s drawn but also in the way it’s written, how they perceive it, the...everything is just...it’s just...
Man I love it, honestly if you haven’t read this series, but you’ve seen the movie, you should really take a look at the books.

Okay, so its set in Canada with an air-headed 23 year old named Scott, who...he’s just hilarious.  
It’s like a video game vs real life and it’s all in the way they say things like:

“Well...my last job is a really long story, filled with sighs. Maybe we can set into it in a later volume.”
“I don’t even want to talk about my last job.”
“Maybe volume three for that one.”

And that’s what it’s like. Also, Scott gets extra lives, and levels get amped up from whatever reason. When he wins he gets money (in coins). And yet it’s such a normal story, sorta, though the characters are all cool, everything is sweet and it’s something—the around-about-shit is all stuff that can really happen. Everything else, it just makes all this shit more interesting.

Really, it’s really bad, I’m staying this shit. It’s mostly because just a cool as book and something that if you were interested at all in the movie, that you will loooove this series.
Really, it’s so much better and even more so because it’s not done in a 2hour movie.
Really, you should check it out. now!!

When we continue....Does Scott & Ramona’s burgeoning relationship have a future? Isn’t Scott still supposedly dating Knives Chau? Who is Ramona’s second evil ex-boyfriend, and why is he in Toronto? Who are The Clash at Demonhead, and what kind of bizarre art-punky music do they play? Who’s their hot girl keyboardist, and what’s her relation to Scott? Why are they Knives Chua’s new favourite band? Fights! Drama! Secrets revealed! The answers to all these questions and more! It’s all coming in....
