Oh, and supernatural powers. The narrator of the trailer describes the city of Neo Yokio as "the most populous urban agglomeration in North America" and a "diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation at the forefront of global fashion and finance".

Netflix describes Neo Yokio as "a postmodern collage of homages to classic anime, English literature and modern NY fashion and culture".

The project is executive produced by Nick Weidenfeld and is a collaboration between Koenig, Production I.G, Studio DEEN, and Studios MOI, with Kazuhiro Furuhashi and Junji Nishimura handling storyboard duties.

All six episode will debut on Netflix on Sep. 22. Will you be checking out this weird and brilliant looking new series? It follows the adventures of Jaden Smith's Kaz Kaan, a broken-hearted, pink-haired demon slayer who cares more about shopping, sports, and relationships than the demon-slaying legacy of his family.

It has fired missiles over the Japanese mainland, and threatened to fire such devices close to the U.S. territory of Guam. Although he said he does not believe the regime now has weapons powerful enough to hit American cities, it will soon.

As for Kaz, his demon-slaying is barely more than a side-hustle coordinated by his Aunt Agatha (Susan Sarandon).

Other recurring characters included at Kaz's side are his faithful mecha-butler Charles, played by Jude Law, and his inseparable friends Lexy and Gottlieb, voiced by the incomparable The Kid Mero and Desus Nice. Jason Schwartzman voices Arcangelo Corelli, Kaz's main competition for the title of Neo Yokio's most eligible bachelor.

The series also includes the vocal talents of Steve Buscemi, Richard Ayoade, Ike Barinholtz, Alexa Chung, Stephen Fry, Katy Mixon, Annet Mahendru, Kiernan Shipka, Willow Smith, and Amanda Stenberg. It is a "postmodern homage to classic anime, English literature, and modern NY fashion and culture".
