The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl - Movie Review

Night Is Short, Walk On Girl (夜は短し歩けよ乙女) is a Japanese animated romantic comedy film directed by Masaaki Yuasa.

The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Tomihiko Morimi, Japanese editions of which are illustrated by the film's original character designer, Yūsuke Nakamura.

The story focuses on an unnamed male university student called "Senior" ("Senpai" in Japanese) and his junior ("kohai"), "The Girl with Black Hair" ("Kuroi Kami no Otome"). He has finally decided to confess his feelings to her while she is having a lively night out. He chases her through the mysterious night that seems to last for a whole year, and through many mishaps they end up tangled up with many eccentric people along the way.
