A new anime called Neo Yokio launched on Netflix last week, starring Jaden Smith and created by Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig. It's pretty quirky.

In an interview with Complex Magazine, Ezra Koenig said Neo Yokio is for fans of Toblerones. He said: "I really just hope people who like Toblerone give it a chance because that's always been the target market."
