Masaaki Yuasa did amazing work adapting the imaginary visuals of the original novel into visuals on screen. Tomihiko Morimi’s fun and lighthearted story speaks well for his acclaim. Yusuke Nakamura’s character design is simple as always but even more appealing and only adds more to the charm of Studio 4*C’s hard work. This film is a keeper in my book and I’m looking to add it to a growing collection.

A striking visual rollercoaster with sweet and funny elements. An m&m blondie brownie of a film.

Excellent, entertaining, and a whole lot of fun! Great for young adults, but maybe not for anyone younger than a teen.

This movie had a great and entertaining story that came full circle. The art style was also breathtaking and I can’t wait to see it again!

Perfect for any anime fan, especially those familiar with Tatami Galaxy. The story is concise and cohesive, delivering on both visual and musical creativity.

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.
