Neo Yokio… is the greatest city in the world. It is the most populous, urban agglomeration in North America, but its prestige does not merely stem from its size. From Bronx Prefecture to the aquatic elements of Battery Park, Neo Yokio is a diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation. No wonder we play host to many of the planet’s most prestigious events. Of course, whenever a city becomes the envy of the world, problems are bound to arise…”
So says Charles, state of the art mecha and high-tech butler to Kaz Kaan, Neo Yokio’s foremost exorcist and top-ranked eligible bachelor. Kaz is a “magistocrat,” a well-heeled wizard who specializes in exorcisms, but he’s constantly distracted from his demon-hunting by his obsessions with fashion, field hockey, and romance. Will he live up to his title and be the best-looking, most desirable, and most skilled demon hunter in all of Neo Yokio?
