The 2010 queer-inclusive comedy “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” about a young man who has to fight his new girlfriend’s exes as though it were a giant video game, was so wildly energetic that mainstream audiences didn’t quite know how to deal with it. It took a while for the film to find its ever-growing cult audience, but find that audience it did, and now Netflix has taken the story and adapted it into an anime series, “Scott Pilgrim Takes Off,” with the original cast — Michael Cera, Aubrey Plaza and Kieran Culkin (as Scott’s hilarious gay roommate) — returning to provide their characters’ voices. The film was originally based on graphic novels, so this is something of a full circle move. You’ll get to binge the whole thing over Thanksgiving when the series drops on Nov. 17.
