The Night is Short, Walk On Girl
(92mins, 2017)

Directed by Masaaki Yuasa

From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Adventure Time‘s “Food Chain”) directs this animated film adapting Morimi Tomihiko's identically titled novel, a comedy about one epic night in Kyoto.


Senpai (voice: Gen Hoshino) is in love with Girl with Black Hair (voice: Kana Hanazawa), secretly. He seeks her at Ponto-cho at night, at the used book market at Shimogamo Shrine, at the university fair… But she never realizes how he feels, and each time he "happens" to run into her, she simply says "What a coincidence!" Will Senpai ever get her to realize his love?
