Jaden Smith‘s character in the new Netflix anime series Neo Yokio has been officially revealed. The show is being developed by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and features Smith voicing Kai aka the “#1 most eligible bachelor and demon slayer.” Jude Law will also be in the show voicing Charles, Kai’s robot butler, partner-in-crime and rocket ship.

Koenig posted images of Kai on Twitter, including the tagline “Things are bubbling in the sea beneath 14th street,” a reference to the world the series is set in, a mishmash of Tokyo and New York. Neo Yokio will be available on Netflix starting September 22. Check out the trailer above.
