News & Interviews for Neo Yokio: Season 1
It's also a series that combines critiques of capitalism, demon fighting, and bachelor rankings against a bougie New York-parody backdrop. There's always a lot going on in Neo Yokio, and I love it.
Neo Yokio is a good lesson in what to avoid when translating a digital concept to a digital series. After all, this won't be the last time someone tries to emulate an online personality for a piece of entertainment.
In fact so much of the show is weak social commentary that you might think it was written by a college student who just read about Trotskyism.
Neo Yokio fails to be anything close to an anime parody as it circles back on jokes and uninteresting plot points. It juggles too many unfocused ideas in too little time.
Given the sluggish, almost nonexistent pace of Neo Yokio's first run, it'd probably take several seasons to get anywhere promising, no matter how many times Coco Chanel's memory is blessed.
