Aesthetics Wiki

Neo-Tokyo (ネオ東京) (sometimes referred to as Neon Tokyo and Neo City) is a style of Cyberpunk stylized by its fictional futuristic version of Tokyo and Japanese/Asian culture often depicted in manga, anime, and video games. Neo-Tokyo often features richly bright neon colours overlaid with Japanese text.

Neo-Tokyo along side Cyberpunk are both likely the partial inspiration and anti-inspiration for Solarpunk, where instead of like Solarpunk where its main focus is a brighter and greener future, Neo-Tokyo instead features a larger range of civilization, and often features a some-what of an negative future covered by bright aesthetics.

Neo-Tokyo is often associated with the cyberpunk genre of science fiction.

The Neo-Tokyo setting first appeared in the Akira series of manga, anime film, and games.

Neuromancer writer William Gibson described Tokyo as an inspiration behind his novel and the cyberpunk movement as a whole. He used the Chiba area of Tokyo as the novel's setting.

The Neo-Tokyo setting was later used again in the Neon Genesis Evangelion series of mecha anime, films, and games.
