    Whether interest for the series will exist outside of those who share that same innate institutional knowledge remains to be seen. But as a visual playground and an assembly of colorful compatriots, Neo Yokio carries its own singular delights. No robot butler required, but it’s the kind of show that’ll make you wish you had one.

    There’s a fair bit of international pop-cultural cross-pollination taking place in the show, and there’s pleasure in picking out the references. It will be a limited pleasure for many (if they feel it at all), but for the fan of this sort of thing, it will be sufficient.

Loved it because it felt genuinely surreal and over the top without the need to rub it in the viewer's face. Definitely a grower, not a shower. Highly reccommended! Full Review »

The animation is of unreasonably poor quality and a ridiculously low framerate. The voice acting is terrible and flat. And the cherry on top of it all? The main character is an insufferable, petty, upperclass sadboy who's unsatisfied with his life because he's only the second most eligible bachelor in Neo Yokio (as indicated by the Bachelor Ranking Board in the middle of the city) and his girlfriend left him to go live somewhere else. You'd be better off watching One Piece fan animations because it would take a miracle to fix this pile of **** Full Review »
