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 ...

This is so pretentious it hurts
22 September 2017 | by photonicfabSee all my reviews

Let me just say I made a pointed effort to try to go into this open minded and was almost immediately disappointed. The whole thing is a weird attempt at both mocking and glorifying classic anime tropes, only done so with no real purpose. It's like it's trying to hide the fact it doesn't know what it's doing behind an "artistic" facade that's about as flimsy as Jaden Smiths unfathomably flat voice acting.

This whole thing just sways from pointless whining to incredibly contrived conflicts to just long swaths of pseudo-intellectual mumbling. It's just awful, clearly whoever wrote and directed this was given far FAR too much creative control and there was no one to reign them in cause almost every moment of this show just seems off. In addition this really does have no soul, no point, no gravitas no nothing really, it's literally just a self indulgent foray into anime for the sake of well... I don't know why.

Take away, it's bad, very bad. It tries to be a lot of things and fails to be anything other than incredibly whiny (mostly about the burdens of being rich), about as subtle as a sledgehammer to the face and just kind of annoying.
