The Night is Short, Walk on Girl Anime Film Heads to Home Video

GKIDS and Shout! Factory announce release date for Blu-ray/DVD combo


Whether you didn't get a chance to see it in theaters or simply want to add it to your collection, Masaaki Yuasa's acclaimed anime film The Night is Short, Walk on Girl is walking on over to home video. GKIDS and Shout! Factory announced a release date for the feature, which is coming home in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in North America on January 29, 2019. 


Beyond the feature itself, the BD/DVD release packs in trailers, TV spots, and an interview with Masaaki Yuasa.




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.
