Japan’s Studio 4°C announced today that its films will be available on Netflix beginning September 2nd.

Among the titles that will be made available is Masaaki Yuasa’s influential 2004 masterpiece Mind Game, which has had perhaps a greater effect on the direction of hand-drawn animation than any other project released over the past decade. The other films that will be available are Sunao Katabuchi’s Princess Arete and the omnibus films Genius Party and Genius Party Beyond.

Following that batch of features, Netflix will release Studio 4°C’s TV series and OVA Tweeny Witches, which is tentatively scheduled to arrive on the streamer on September 15.

The films will be available on Netflix in Japan, US, Canada, UK/IE, Australia/New Zealand and Latin America (minus Brazil), as well as other Netflix territories minus China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, and Arabic-speaking countries. Tweeny Witches will not be available in Latin America.
