This was pretty good.

The Scott Pilgrim guy did a Sonic the Hedgehog adaptation? Good for him, he's moving up in the world. Here's hoping he flips off Penders at some point.

If you like shitty things.

I got bored of it in the begining then my friend told me what the rest was about. I dont think i'll pick back up again.
>>
>>77484545
I liked it well enough but it's one of those you only need to read once and never go back for seconds
>>

teehee

disappointed by the lack of /u/
Hazel was a qt

>>77484545
I liked, but don't think I could go back again. It's Like Scott is already a monument to bad choices, but ok whatever, he's a twenty something loser, and the whole point of the story is that he's a forgetful prick. Katie on the other hand is just mentally retarded and doesn't have the benefit of being mind fucked to cover for her bullshit.

This

>>77484545
it was solid, but played very safe for the story it was trying to tell; no mind jiggling mold breaking here. Also,
> diversity ahoy!
already forgot her name, but the main lead is such an asshole.
>>
>>77486717
Pretty much. Worse yet she does that shit until the last five minutes when shit suddenly clicks even though she should've gotten the message far sooner. I found it hard to believe that incompetent mess of a womanchild was able to get so much respect from everyone around her
>>
>>77487043
> diversity ahoy!
You mean the whopping 2 nonwhite characters? Wowee!
>>
>>77487116
I was more going for
> short ginger, fat guy, black guy, possible Hispanic girl (or at least has unique family traditions with the while belief in house spirits), gay guy, blonde, etc
>>
>>77487352
> blondes, gingers, and fat people are tumblr now

I mean in a technical sense, but if you mean it in a negative way, was he just supposed to drawn everyone as grey blobs?
>>

Jesus christ fuck off.

I guess I phrased that wrong. Fine, I suppose true diversity wasn't the word I was looking for. Must've just had
> colored person in anime = white person recolor & Caucasian = exact same but with blonde hair
on the mind.
And no, I wasn't triggered. Just pointing out how no characters were the same despite the relative same-face factor the art style has.
>>
>>77487791
She wasn't evil really, just pissed. House spirits in most mythologies generally do come the fuck down if you acknowledge them and give them some respect.
>>
>>77487921
calm* the fuck down, fuck I can type for shit tonight.
>>
>>77487791
She wasn't evil. Why the hell did you think she was evil? If anything MC chick was evil.

I just want a bad ending for once, anon.

Fuck you, man, how'd you know I love Guillermo Del Toro?

god damn it

O'Malley can't write a coherent ending to save his life.
>>
>>77490543
Scott Pilrgim's ending was great.

But yeah, the ending of Seconds ruined the whole thing for me.
And I felt like it needed slower pacing, it should've been in volumes.
>>
>>77490639

I just feel like Scott Pilgrim's ending didn't make any sense. It was mostly the huge crystal pods Gideon was keeping the women end out of nowhere, I guess. And the explanation of the Glow wasn't satisfying and was nonsense.
>>
>>77490677
I'll be honest, it's been a few years since I read it, but I remember it feeling satisfying.
>>
>>77490807
´>>77490677

Made more sense than the game at least.
>>
>>77485112
Literally no taste
>>
>>77485358
Really? I readed the whole thing much more times than the Scott Pilgrim series, but well to be fair the SP was kinda long to read a lot of times
>>
>>77490677
Well, O'Malley himself agrees with you (from the Scott Pilgrim Wikipedia page):

>O'Malley said that the most difficult portion of Scott Pilgrim to write was the ending. O'Malley deliberately did not consider constructing the ending until he began writing Volume 5. He intended for Volumes 5 and 6 to reflect one single story, with 5 being the "darkest hour" and 6 being "the redemption arc."[6] O'Malley said "there was a lot of stuff to juggle, a lot of plot lines to tie up, and I just had to try and focus on the stuff that mattered most in the time I had."[6] In addition, he wanted to create an ending that would "compete[...] a little" with the ending of the film version; he was aware of "how BIG the finale was".[6] About the ending, O'Malley said, "I think the stuff with the girls and the relationships works pretty well and the stuff with Gideon and the glow is weaker. But hey, some people love it warts and all, and it’s not like I’m gonna go back and change it."[6]

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE PORN FOR THIS

THIS RIGHT FUCKING HERE

I NEED HAZEL R34 LIKE RIGHT FUCKING NOW
>>
>>77490639
To this day I still don't get what the point of the glowing shit was about.
I can at least chalk up his giant container of ex girlfriends to "shoehorned videogame reference" but the glow just seemed to go nowhere.
>>
Scott Pilgrim a shit this was ok.
>>
>>77487921
Yeah the house spirit was pretty much exactly like redcaps in scandinavian folk myths. Super nice and helpful on your farm as long as you obey some simple rules and remember to feed it. If you try to fool it, break the rules or forget to feed it, it will kill your cattle, ruin your crops and burn your farm down.
>>
>>77495261
>I readed

Says everything I need to know about the kind of people who like this.

>Just pointing out how no characters were the same despite the relative same-face factor the art style has.

is that...is that bad somehow?
>>
>>77484545
The main character has to be a complete piece of shit for the story to happen. She's the worst character for sure but if she wasn't the main character nothing would happen.
>>
>>77490677

I honestly think the SP movie ending is a lot better. I feel like O'Malley tried to make things in the book too complicated because he didn't want Gideon to be just an evil record producer. Sometimes it's best to just keep things simple.
>>
>>77503394
She shouldn't have got back with her ex at the end.
>>
>>77504142
Scott x Knives ending works better in the movie
>>
>>77504548
how
>>
>>77504680
It feels more developed, since they filmed the adaptation with that ending in mind.
The Theatrical ending was done after filming was done so that it was closer to the book, but since the book and film were quite different, it didn't feel right.
>>
It would be good if it weren't for the bullshit ending.
>>
>>77504846
That doesn't sound right to me, but I haven't seen the alternate ending.
There wasn't really any further development between Knives and Scott after they broke up.
>>
>>77484545
pretty comfy. I look forward to the guy's future works.
>>
>>77484545

I felt the friendship between the two main girls was too thin for it to be really good.
>>
>>77485881

Hazel was best girl by far. Main girl was annoying and a cunt.
>>
>>77484545
Yeah I like it too. Read it a couple of times and everytime I get someone else to read it, after they get passed the initial artwork, they agree it's good too. :)
>>
>>77484676
Gave me a hearty chuckle.
>>
>>77499684
English is not my first language so I don't know what word to use in case of comics you faggot
>>
>>77510884
The past tense of read is still read, you don't add an -ed to the end of it.
You just pronounce it like the "red" instead of "reed."
>>
>>77503394
You really don't understand character development, do you?
>>
>>77514138

yeah but having a complete douche as a lead, that is already an adult, only to have her pass trought some generic arc and have her to act like an adult is lazy writing


Remember Catwoman the movie? They did just that! Have Not Selyna Kyle be all shy and awkward just to have her a couple of scenes later kicking ass in a really forced way

Like, don't go from black to white
>>
>>77484545

It's the shittiest pile of predictable inane drible I've ever read I was furious at the friend who had me read it afterward.

I can't believe all the positive responses to it in this thread. I wish you people had higher standards. There is zero literary value in this fucking trash.
>>
Honestly looks cute, but boring as shit, man.
