No. Credete che si sia accorto che la sua band sta andando in pezzi? No. Credete che lo strano comportamento della sua fidanzata lo abbia in qualche modo insospettito? No, niente di tutto ...more

This volume was a tad repetitive and didn't stand out amongst the others, but I feel like it's leading up to a great ending!
Fifth Level!

This is the fifth book (in a series of six) of “Scott Pilgrim” saga.

Creative Team:

Creator, writer and illustrator: Bryan Lee O’Malley


I don’t care who you are, or where you’re from. Or… what you did. As long as you love me.

I’ve done bad things

We both have. Everyone has!

Scott Pilgrim is now 24 years old (with Birthday party, cake and stuff), and Ramona Flowers revealed in the previous book that she’s 24 years old, so now they both are of the same age
THIS is actually probably my least favourite of the series so far because it felt very repetitive and there wasn't much plot happening. Ramona is mad at Scott, they fight and he sleeps at the houses of his friends. They make up. The twins appear. Lather, rinse and repeat.

I still love the art style and the quirky humour; plus I am really keen for the last volume but this one was kind of disappointing.
Honestly, i was a little disappointed with Twins. I had my hopes up for a more epic battle and the rest of the story line was OK but a bit confusing. Ok, on to the conclusion now...

This volume felt more serious and kind of depressing in comparison to the others and I think the reason for that was the idea that things need to get worse before they get better. In a nutshell.

I also thought that here we saw more mature themes and more sexual innuendo than in the previous volumes and most of all, worse moments for both main characters. This was a defining volume for Ramona as a character and I really pitied her in the bedroom scene. Sc

Scott pilgrim never disappoints. This was such a AWESOME Graphic novel. It opens up and makes it ready for the final volume. This has also got to be one of my favorites in the whole series. So EPIC!!! The ending had me like "I need the final book now!!!" It had everything you need in graphic novel. Epicness, humor, action and much much more. The evil ex boyfriends were AMAZING! And just everything was AMAZING!Overall this book was KICKASS and AWESOME

not sure why I didn't get this on my first read but...

Vol. 4 okay, is a retread of all the moves of the series so far, the ex battle, the game elements, the girl from Scott's past, Scott being clueless & dumb. Amplified, played for laughs sure, but the moves are old, tired and you've seen 'em before. There's a cursory feint towards Scott growing up, getting his shit together which gives it an illusion of change, but really, Vol. 4 is the same ol' Scott Pilgrim, the one you know and love. And

This isn't the last vol. in the series, and yet it feels like the end.

After so many physical fights Scott has endured over his girlfriend Ramona (her ex-boyfriends show up throughout the entire series), it appears he still hasn't won. Her heart that is. Ramona seems discontent with him. She no longer disguises her loss of interest in his band, dislikes his possessive nature of checking her cellphone and seems bored of putting up with his immaturity (Scott is 24 and works part-time. Can't afford

These books man. Sometimes it's like reading about my friends. Here we are, 24 or so, dead broke, trying to make a go of it, hurting each other every time we turn around. My favourite part in this book is when Kim gets on a train:
Scott: Sorry about... everything.
Kim:Not your fault.
Scott: *thinks really hard for a couple of panels* I'm sorry about me.
Kim: Apology accepted.

The moments of realizations, the coming to terms with ourselves as bad people, and then taking those steps and saying the hard

So much like the movie, yet an entire entity of its own. So worth the five stars! What can I say, though, without spoiling it?

This is the book where Scott's voyage through the Seven Deadly Exes really takes a turn. The fight against the Katayanagi twins, Kyle and Ken, was so different and new, I almost thought Scott wouldn't make it to the end of the book--whether he did or not is for you to read. (although, come on, there is a book 6).

There are more parties Scott and Ramona attend, more random

So this is a review for the entire series.
it was amazzzzing by the way.

The characters were so unique and interacted with each other soooo well and it was just awesome!!!
Scott- Funny as hell.
Ramona- Cool as hell.
Knives- Obsessed as hell.
Stephen Stills- Laid back as hell.
Kim- Awesome as hell.
Stacey- Normal as hell.
Wallace- Amazing as hell.
Young Neil- Cute as hell.
Gideon- Annoying as hell.
Natalie(aka Envy)- Retarded as hell.
Lisa- Random as hell.
Julie- Mean as hell.
Mathew Petal- Amusing as hell.

I think what annoys me about the sort of music fandom depicted by the Scott Pilgrim characters is not simply that they value music solely because of their emotional reactions to it, but they act as if this somehow makes them special, as if their emotional connection to the music were somehow more valid than the average jugglette's.

Then there's the obsession with the rarity of music: collecting unknown bands and staking claim, which is a symptom of the fact that most trendy people don't recognize

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

This was the worst book in the series for me. It's Scott's 24th birthday and he has matured a bit like I wanted him to over the course of these books. At least he's no longer using girls and being a major jerk, though he is still a jerk. Ramona's behaviour is suddenly all out of character and she appears to just disappear. o..kay?... Anyone doing the math is not surprised to know that this book's boyfriend will have to be twins, otherwise how do we get 7 ev

After that Lisa Miller encounter in volume 4, everything felt mediocre thereafter. Especially here in volume 5. Not that it would stop me from finishing Scott Pilgrim since there's only one volume left, but volume five is very underwhelming. The Pilgrim vs. the Twins fight is muddled by exposition and uninspired dialogue. I am not interested with this sudden coldness of Ramona towards Scott. Her mysterious disappearance IMHO would have been more impactful if the two were in very good terms.

Another hilarious book from Brian Lee O'Malley! I love the world he creates for the characters. I also love that he leaves no stone unturned. He'll bring back some things from the first couple of books, and it fits so well with the storyline. It's sheer perfection. I love how even though a little faith goes a long way in Scott's fights, he is still so insecure about his relationship with Ramona. There are a lot of really funny scenes. Most of them incorporate what's being drawn around characters ...more

I remember when Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5 came out. The anticipation. The excitement. The drama. The need to read it as son as I got my hands on it. The claim that once again Bryan Lee O'Malley really nailed it and knocked it out of the park.

But having read it again, now, finally, years after knowing how it ends and where it all goes, I find myself very... conlicted.

I'll go back to Harry Potter. That's the easiest comparison. I remember with Harry Potter that I really liked the sixth book, but didn't

En este tomo vemos a un Scott en un ambiente mucho más maduro. Las fiestas, la cruda correspondiente, los celos, el engaño y el empleo forman parte importante en la vida de Scott.

Ramona sigue siendo aquí una especie de fantasma; un poco ausente y desabrida, pero supongo que es en favor de conservar su misterio y poder revelarlo todo al final en la pelea contra Gideon.

Para estos capítulos Scott es mucho más fuerte emocionalmente, aunque sigue diciendo cosas ingenuas y divertidas (¡Vuelvo enseguid

Ramona has twin ex boyfriends? Get out really. What other chauvanistic sexual fetishes can you put on this poor girl?

So now the parasite known as Scott Pilgrim has Ramona for a host. His band is splitting up and he just can't catch a break. Aw.

His stalker high school ex girlfriend fights Ramona in a girls bathroom. Are you sure O'Malley isn't 17 years old?

And the end reveals that Ramona has left Scott (YAY) to go back to her ex, Gideon, to set up the final book.

I read Scott Pilgrim in its original manga-sized, black and white form when it first came out. With the final volume of the color version coming out this year, I thought it would be a great time to revisit the story as well as looking at how the addition of color changes things. I’ll be exploring the story and themes volume by volume. This time, volume 5.

For the most part, everyone’s era of extended adolescence is coming to an end. Some of the blame for this development can be laid upon the shou
