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 ...

Neo Yokio is a terrible parody of anime that I just couldn't sit through
23 September 2017 | by speedthehedgehogkingdomSee all my reviews

Neo Yokio is an anime parody, except the jokes aren't funny, and even if the lines themselves are well-written, the delivery and directing ultimately kill the joke.

First, I'll get the easiest weakness out of the way. The animation and design of this show is terrible. At first, the animation seemed poor, but not outright bad. After a while though, it become unbelievably cheap that I'm shocked if it even had a budget. While animation in normal, serious anime can be just as lazy in some places, they at least have the benefit of their key-frames being visually appealing, which is not the case for Neo Yokio. The poor animation in some anime is meant so they can spend more on action and fight scenes, where as in Neo Yokio, the show is consistently terrible with its animation.

The voice acting is terrible, which is especially weird considering that so much of the shows cast are incredibly talented people, such as Jude Law and Steve Buscemi. The poor delivery of the dialogue ruins many of the jokes, and makes it incredibly obnoxious to sit through.

The show tries to be a comedy, but I didn't even realize that they were even telling jokes until halfway through. All of the jokes are delivered as if they were normal dialogue, and go unnoticed by the viewer. It's clear that the joke is that the show isn't as interesting or deep as it's appears to be, but the joke gets old, and because of the terrible directing, none of the other jokes hit, except for minor exceptions.

I know what some people might be saying "Neo Yokio is trying to be bad, so that makes it okay!", but no, that's just incorrect. It might make me less harsh on those involved, but it doesn't mean the show is any better, it just means they were self-aware.

The best way to enjoy Neo Yokio, is to not take it seriously, and keep your expectations as low as you can. However, in my own opinion, Neo Yokio is something I won't ever watch again.
