Neo Yokio: In Review

Created and written by Ezra Koeing from Vampire Weekend, this is his debut into television maybe that’s why the show feels so completely out of left field. Jaden Smith stars as Kaz Kaan a existential young adult ‘magistorcat’. Magistocrat coined by the show is an elite clan of magician aristocrats that are a controversial component of the Neo Yokio high society. Neo Yokio is the first animated show where the cast is on spotlight, Tavi Gevinson is making her footway in Hollywood advancing beyond rookie magazine and Susan Sarandon who is coming off from her iconic role as Bette Davis in feud. The thing about this show is that it’s a satire, riddled with ‘Kodak black lips’ levels of dry humor the show rubs a lot of people the wrong way. Personally I’m into it, it’s weird, elaborate, self aware, and for some reason no matter how complicated or embellished it becomes in the isolated moment it all seems completely reasonable and logical.

Rating breakdown’s

 

Binge-ability: 3 ¾ stars: you have to be into because it gets weird but season 1 is really short altogether

Investment in the storyline: 2 ½ stars, this is oddly low compared to everything else but it’s very else into the series and this show all in all came out of no where

Animated Eye Candy: 4 ½ stars Kaz Kaan is sulky but I’m kind of into it
