Obtain Acacia's Full Course
NEO aka “The New Food Utopia” is a secret organization created from an alliance between some of the world's most wealthy and influential individuals, such as Colonel Mokkoi the head of Company Gourdarake, Darnil Kahn the former ruler of the Jidar Kingdom, Mahmai Moi the head of the Gourmet Tourism Public Company, Kousairou the Gourmet Hermit, Zaus the legendary King of Chefs and Joa a legendary chef and the leader of NEO. their goal appears to be acquiring the holy ingredients of Acacia's Full Course Menu.
Originally just an alliance between wealthy individuals, the organization has since become a formidable force on par with both the IGO and the Bishokukai, and their information network has also proven to be far superior compared to either of the mentioned organizations. They have members who work in either the IGO or the Bishokukai and other major organizations, which gives NEO an edge in gathering Intel on ingredients and their rivals' plans.
The organization apparently chooses new members based on their status, wealth, abilities, strength or influence in the world, as the organization is made up of many notable individuals who are either financially or physically powerful or very well versed in their respective field. The organization also recruits individuals who hold a great deal of influence within other rival organizations in order to use them as spies.
However it appears that certain members (or perhaps all of its members) did not join the organization of their own free will, as it is revealed that many are actually brainwashed victims of Joa that have been forced into serving NEO through a special technique known as "Taste Change" created by Joa through the use of his knife Cinderella. Some members who have been hypnotized will show clear signs of brainwashing, such as dilated pupils, blank expressions and a lack of speech as seen by Teppei. Others will show almost no sign of having their minds altered as they can speak clearly and have normal eyes and facial expressions. Those who have had their "taste changed" will have visible scars on their bodies from where Joa cut them with Cinderella in order to change their "tastes".
