Interview: Director Masaaki Yuasa Talks New GKIDS Five Films Collection and More

Actually, I didn’t realize how many people liked Mind Game, you know? But when I came last year to the United States, and everyone I met, they constantly brought up Mind Game. They’re like, “I love Mind Game. I love Mind Game.” So then that’s when I finally realized. I didn’t know so many people liked Mind Game. That makes me really happy.

Tyler Treese: G-KIDS is putting out such a wonderful set of five of your movies. What’s really cool is that there are a bunch of great bonus features that really dive into your creative process. I love the scene breakdowns. What does it mean for you to have such a passionate fan base that not only enjoys your art but wants to know about the thought process of what goes into the art as well?
