GKIDS AND SHOUT! FACTORY PRESENT THE NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL
ON BLU-RAY™ & DVD COMBO PACK JANUARY 29, 2019
Los Angeles, CA – The inventive new feature The Night is Short, Walk on Girl from anime auteur Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Lu Over the Wall) will be released on Blu-ray™ + DVD combo pack on January 29, 2019 from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. Winner of the 2018 Japan Academy Prize for Best Animated Feature, the film comes to home video following its nationwide theatrical release in August. Bonus features include interview with Yuasa, trailers and TV spots.
From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa comes a free-wheeling 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. Featuring boundless imagination and visual wit, The Night is Short, Walk on Girl is a celebration of the unconventional, confusing routes that life and love can take, from one of the most exciting voices in anime today.
