Japan Flix: Japanese Movies Online

January 29, 2011

Yesterday, a New York/Tokyo based production company called TK Digital has launched Japan Flix. Japan Flix is a digital distribution venture that makes never-before-released Japanese films available for the first time in the United States. Takayama Teru, the founder and president of TK Digital and Japan Flix says:

There are so many great films made each year in Japan, that never get a chance to find an audience who otherwise would not have access to them.

Japan Flix offers a highly convenient distribution method for the movies, as each of their releases will be available to download through iTunes Store, and in HD when it is available. The site enables viewers to browse through catalog that include information and trailers for each film. Japan Flix has began with a number of titles, including AKB48‘s Oshima Yuko in the hit horror movie Teke Teke as well as the popular horror franchise Tomie franchise, Tomie vs Tomie, which is the photo above. Japan Flix  will be followed by new releases every month.

On their Twitter account, they have replied to users on their plans for the future. They plan to use other outlets aside from iTunes in the future and have discussed having J-Dramas on their site!

As far as I can tell, it seems that these movies are not dubbed, but have English subtitles. Hopefully, they will have online streaming for members in the future. If they add J-Dramas, that would be golden for J-Drama addicts such as myself. Check out Japan Flix official website and spread the word!

  1. Seriously? Neftlix has a some jmovies and kmovies that you can stream for a monthly fee, but no drama. This does seem cool, but would be even cooler if they had drama


    • Yeah, I’d definitely would buy some J-Dramas to watch, especially if it’s the J-Dramas that don’t get picked up by fansubbers.
