Nishi is a 20-year-old, self-deprecating loser who dreams of drawing manga for a living. Since the age of nine, he has always been in love with a girl named Miyo - but although she has feelings for him, his shyness and inability to confess his love have led her to think about marrying another man. Shortly after learning of this, Nishi is shot through the butt by an angry Yakuza mobster and dies - and thus begins the story of Mind Game, a movie about second chances and living life with no regrets.

* AttemptedRape: Atsu attempts to strip down Myon and violently assaults her, right after beating her boyfriend Ryo into unconsciousness. Fortunately, he stops because Myon mentions Nishi's name - unfortunately, this causes Atsu to target Nishi and [[AssShove shove his gun up their ass,]] which ends up the catalyst for the rest of the plot.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: A variation. Once Nishi, Myon and Yan reach Ji-san's place, they lose their shoes and go barefoot for the rest of the movie.



* LemmingCops: A bunch of Lemming Yakuza are crashing their cars while in pursuit of the protagonists. On the upside, no tax money was wasted.

The whole movie is told in several different styles of animation, visual metaphors, intertwining plots and philosophical messages. Since its release, it has become something of a cult classic, being praised by directors from both the West and the East for its storytelling and visual style(s).

* LaserGuidedKarma: Atsu blows Nishi's brains out through his ass just to be a dick, right after putting a gun to the face of his superior, Aniki, and [[AttemptedRape preparing to rape Myon for the hell of it.]] Aniki [[spoiler: promptly guns down Atsu after proclaiming he was going to spare him, before casually blaming it on the newly-revived Nishi.]]

* [[Gainaxing]]: Myon's got a rather large pair of GagBoobs, and when the action gets going, you can bet the camera's going to focus on it.
