Netflix anime parody ‘Neo Yokio’ loads up on star power

An homage to the Shonen genre, the anime offers a serious dose of postmodern style. It follows the exploits of bored teen bachelor Kaz Kaan, a citizen of the fictional city of Neo Yokio (which looks a lot like a futuristic Manhattan). There’s mechs, brash sidekicks (courtesy of Viceland talk show hosts Desus and Mero), couture fashion, bratty rich kids, and a spoonful of black magic. If you ever dreamed of Wes Anderson directing an anime, this is probably the closest you’ll get to that mash-up. – Saqib Shah, Engadget
