Anime Limited have partnered with STUDIO4°C to run a Kickstarter aimed to offer Masaaki Yuasa’s surreal animated film Mind Game on Blu-ray and DVD to a global audience. Anime Limited generally work within the UK and France but this specific Kickstarter will produce region free discs available to all interested global audiences who wish to financially back the project. The initial £4,500 goal was hit within a matter of hours and now the project is hoping to hit stretch goals which will allow targets such as subtitles for non-English speaking regions.
The project page describes the film thusly:
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…
The project will run from today until 29th April. For further details including a trailer, please visit the official Kickstarter project page.
