Neo Yokio

I gave this a try when it was released on Netflix, and couldn’t get into it. I thought the idea of doing an artsy take on anime to be an interesting one, and I do like the Wes Anderson-like opening credits, which really clash with the bombastic openers we’re used to seeing in anime. But after watching the first 2 episodes, I was just plain bored. It’s supposed to be a sort of parody of anime, but it’s neither funny nor saying anything particularly interesting. It might be a series that finds its footing later on in the season, but I just wasn’t interested — or cared enough — to watch any more of it.
