The Glasgow-based distributor Anime Limited today announced a partnership with Japanese studio Studio 4°C (Berserk: Golden Age Arc) to produce a blu-ray release of Mind Game, their critically acclaimed 2004 film from director Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy). The release will be funded partially by Kickstarter, which aims to raise £4,500 in a campaign starting at 12:00 BST on Thursday 30th March. Studio 4°C will be providing the remainder of costs.
Anime Limited describes the story of Mind Game, as follows:
Nishi has always loved Myon since they were little. And now as adults, he wants to pursue his dream of becoming a manga artist and marrying his childhood sweetheart. There’s one problem, though. She’s already been proposed to and thinks Nishi is too much of a wimp. But upon meeting the fiancé while at her family’s diner and accepting him as a good guy, they encounter a couple of yakuza, only to have Nishi grasp a certain revelation. And, with his newly acquired look on life, adventures abound as he, Myon, and her sister, Yan, escape the yakuza into a most unlikely location where they meet an old man…
