The lead singer of indie rock band Vampire Weekend, Ezra Koenig, is teaming up with actor/singer/Twitter personality extraordinaire Jaden Smith to create an anime series for Netflix.
That’s a sentence you just read, and yes, it’s completely real.
Neo Yokio is a surreal “postmodern homage to classic anime, English literature, and modern New York fashion and culture” written by Koenig and Nick Weidenfeld, starring Smith as the main character who fights demons and rival eligible bachelors in a city called Neo Yokio. And like the names and ideas that went into this anime, the recently trailer is just as bonkers.
