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...

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Its certainly wild....
at the risk of spoilering, there are quite a few sequences that put me in mind of the later stages of Disneys Pinocchio (to detail would spoil)
An interesting film, but not ultimately to my taste, a bit too self consciously wacky for that.
technical quality good, extras limited.

The thing that strikes me about Yuasa's, Miyazaki's, and Takahata's direction is that you can notice the influence from all different media and art-forms outside of just anime, and these influences come together in a coherent, unique way. Although there are other anime films that have incredible emotional stories, they're often too closely derivative of other works in their own medium (stylistically speaking). Yuasa is the king of manipulating animation in unique ways to communicate emotion/story/intentions/personal struggles through clear symbolism.
I don't "hate it" when a simple story is presented in animation, but it's hard not to notice the directors who push the envelope vs those who do not. Yuasa pushes his films visually while maintaining a sense of purpose for his unusual animation and art-style antics. The rationale behind his choices is always clear, but he still manages to surprise you with the way they're presented.
These films are not for everyone, but if you're looking to experience a film with a strong vision behind it, Mind Game will not disappoint you. If you're a fan of animation, you MUST watch this movie.
