Movie Info & Cast


Fathom Events and GKIDS are excited to bring the subtitled premiere of Masaaki Yuasa’s The Night is Short, Walk on Girl, to select movie theaters nationwide on August 21 and 22. From the visionary Director of Mind Game and Adventure Time's Food Chain, The Night is Short, Walk on Girl, is a comedy about one epic night in Kyoto. As a group of teens go out for a night on the town, a sophomore known only as "The Girl with Black Hair” experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife… all the while unaware of the romantic longings of Senpai, a fellow student who has been creating increasingly fantastic and contrived reasons to run into her, in an effort to win her heart.

It was a fun movie, and after watching it, I just want to go out and have a night fun!

Almost emblematic of the nonsense and insanity that pervades university campus life, Night Is Short, Walk On Girl is a fun and entertaining ride, though its dissatisfying conclusion and weak ability to transition between ideas may leave audiences feeling a little underwhelmed.

Winning and confusing in equal measure, this Japanese animated feature is likely to attract devout admirers but also baffle a significant number of viewers.

Yuasa doesn’t care much for substance, so beyond the film’s surface charms there’s not much to hang onto. But those surface charms are substance enough. Colorful, madcap, and surprisingly sweet, The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl is the best nocturnal romp you never had, and a dizzying reignition of rom-com formula.
