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 ...

Not garbage, but not anything special. Watchable.
24 September 2017 | by WeebonizedAutismSee all my reviews

I have an inherent negative disposition to Jaden Smith, as if you listen to the things that come out of his mouth that aren't scripted, you'll usually end up finding your face in your palm, but fortunately I didn't know that his was the voice that I was listening to until I finished the series and went to rate it. Overall this wasn't anything special as an "anime" if you can call it that (which I think you can), as I view anime as a medium for telling a story, not some specific set of rules that an show must fall into, to meet the spectacular term we call anime.

In regards to the story, I didn't feel like it was a "One Punch Man" ripoff at all, it was most definitely it's own thing! The plot doesn't revolve around the protagonist having too much power, so much so that he's driven to boredom. This show however was definitely very interesting, to see what a fully americanized anime looks like. This is it, and for that reason alone I'd recommend giving it a watch, but if you're a man or woman with very limited time who doesn't get to watch much TV / anime, I'd advise you to probably not put this one at the top of your list. All in all it was a fun and watchable anime, just for the different American feel it gives, and seeing the generation Z slang in an anime. If you have nothing better to do, it's a quick fun watch, by no means is it the best, but definitely watchable.

Only peev with the show is that the girl's voices were almost all, strangely, very deep... Besides this it a very watchable 7/10 full blown "hip" American anime.

edit- Another user put it perfectly: "Western anime that's not actually trying to mimic eastern anime" which is quite a unique thing, that we really don't get to see much of, so that's why I recommend a watch :)
