Animation, Comedy

Night is Short, Walk on Girl takes place over the course of one strange and alcohol-drenched night, as a young woman known only as The Girl With Black Hair drinks her way through Kyoto. Along the way she encounters a panoply of odd and fantastical characters, all the while crisscrossing paths with senior student Senpai, who creates increasingly contrived reasons to run into her in an effort to win her heart. Winner of the Grand Prize at Ottawa Animation Festival, Night is Short, Walk on Girl is an "I guess it's romantic?" comedy for the modern age, and a celebration of the unconventional, confusing routes that love and life can take.
