Storyline

Welcome to Neo Yokio, the greatest city in the world. It's the most populous urban agglomeration in North America, but its prestige does not merely stem from its size. Neo Yokio is a diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation at the forefront of global fashion and finance. All of this is cold comfort to the lovesick Kaz Kaan (Jaden Smith), the youngest member of a family of: "magistocrats" - pink-haired demon slayers who once liberated the city. Today, his demon-slaying is barely more than a side-hustle coordinated by his Aunt Agatha (Susan Sarandon) - Kaz himself would rather concern himself with shopping, field hockey and - of course - mending his broken heart. Always by Kaz's side are his faithful mecha-butler, Charles (Jude Law), and his inseparable friends Lexy and Gottlieb (The Kid Mero and Desus Nice) as he navigates the complexities of life in Neo Yokio and tries to stay one step ahead of his arch-rival, Neo Yokio's number one most eligible bachelor, Arcangelo ...

Very Niche, Very Well Executed
27 September 2017 | by russmawSee all my reviews

This is definitely one of those experiences you will either love or hate. It is definitely satire.

The Art should always lend to the production and the design appears very purposefully American with a setting that is a parody of New York, it makes perfect sense. The art took some getting used and is probably the only reason this anime isn't better reviewed.

The Characters are all satirical parodies of real-life dynamics and remain a social dialogue about the bourgeoisie.

There were many interesting elements including the world in which demons exist but the main plot line doesn't seem to actually require them. The music was beautifully classic and lent itself to this darkly hidden subterfuge that maintained an aggressive presence in the undertone while making this ever prevalent facade.

To me the story doesn't appear to be about demons, it appears to be a youths experiences and growing up to see that everyone wears masks.
