Mind Game

Synopsis: The film follows Nishi, a loser who has a crush on his childhood girlfriend. After an encounter with the Japanese mafia, the film follows Nishi as he journeys to heaven and back, and ends up trapped in an even more unlikely place. Nishi (and some friends) attempt to break out of their trap, and discover what it truly means to be alive along the way. This is a mind-bending trip that uses some of the most innovative animation ever created.

'Cause I love the women of the Uchida family!

You were surrounded by

three of the most beautiful women!

I even planned a trip

to your home town last year!

Thinking the place'll be

swarming with girls like them!

Had to see the source!

Myon, maybe you should marry Nishi.

You'd be happier that way.

What're you talking about?

You love him. You wrote about him

all the time when you were in school!

- Wrote what?!

- Oh, Nishi this, Nishi that, Nishi, Nishi...


Ryo's nice too! But I prefer Nishi!





Don't mind him!

This is Nishi.

This is Ryo!

Hi. Heard a lot about you! Pleased to meet you!

Same here.



Did you hear about Kenta's accident?


So please be careful.

Here Nishi!


You do Mangas, right?

Nishi promised to do one about me!

Yes, something naughty and sexy!

Can't wait...

Stop it!

Something nasty and kinky!

I wanna see that!

Good looking guy, great bod',

seems trustworthy...

But wasn't something a little...

...odd when you came in?

We were talking about ME,

'bout how I'm the one for Myon.

You're in the way pal, a third wheel,

can't you see it?

I shouldn't embarrass her by competing

with him. Don't want to make them feel awkward.

I'll get my truck on the 25th!


Carries a 5 ton load! I'll be making money!

- You're a truck driver?

- Thanks.

I used to do things like that! Hard stuff!!!

Had no idea, Nishi.

Well, my body's all I've got going for me!

A real man alright...

Sensitive can mean neurotic. Women are

happier with these rough and simple types!

Nice smile too! I'm history. She's yours...



It'll dry soon!

Something wrong?

Your beer...


- You know this guy?

- The owner!

He's off today! I'm only here part-time!

I'm not sure where he is. Sorry.
