Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

This mildly entertaining series mixes elements of anime with some deadpan humor while offering not-so-subtle commentary about urban classism. However, the high-society narrative overwhelms the story world, making the Magician's fight against demon possession seem forced and out of place. Adding to this is Kaz Kaan's self-absorbed personality, which is so over-the-top that it's often hard to like him.

There's an attempt at diversity among the privileged (which is sometimes highlighted by some racially motivated remarks), and occasional social commentary that challenges Kaz's way of thinking. But Neo Yokio lacks any sort of cultural backbone outside of the world of the wealthy. The humor doesn't go far enough, either. As a result, it's just not clear what the overall series is trying to accomplish, which makes it difficult to enjoy.
