I was thinking about Wes Anderson watching this!
I'm surprised people are watching this film without having seen The Tatami Galaxy first. Almost every joke in Night is Short is a direct reference to the series. To be honest, I would've thought the movie was a complete mess without any context. xD
You definitely need to watch Tatami Galaxy, there are many links and references and in my opinion it's better than this movie.
ohhh that intro ,':)
Felt like watching a movie and saw that this was playing. Didn't know anything about it or the director before I saw it. It was a ride
Their names aren't "Otome" and "Senpai", Otome just means girl and Senpai is a title for someone older or of superior ranking
Bought it on blu-ray, don't bother showing this to family or kids, they'll fall asleep from speed reading subtitles because there's no English dub(not surprising there isn't one for a film like this though). I felt like the length of the movie was a bit too long 93 mins, especially for having a non-conventional story, it could of shaved off 10-15 mins and been fine. Some scenes, like the theater singing and the senpai talking to himselves in the auditorium was dragged on for so long.
I love the title just as much as the movie
Thanks for the great review. BTW why isn't this included in the anime playlist?
Yuasa is GOAT tatami galaxy, ping pong, kaiba
Actually 'Otome' means 'lady' and Senpai is a term to refer to someone who's older than you in a respectful way, the director doesn't like to name his characters, just as in Tatami Galaxy, the main character is named Watashi which means "Myself'.
Guys this movie is AMAZING and UNIQUE please go and watch it!!😍
Watch the film high, thank me later
The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Tomihiko Morimi. I've read the novel and it is great too. I've heard other novels written by Tomihiko are great too.
Review My Hero Academia: Two Heros
What is it with this man and great t-shirts?
Hmm~...this movie looks very surreal and interesting. Definitely an instant watch from me!
Have you reviewed Gintama yet? If not, I'd like to hear your thoughts on it
Time to get cuckmanized
Groping boobs and getting punched for it, is HILARIOUS!
Review the tatami galaxy!!
“A man named senpai” lmao
I thought this would be an interesting movie to watch, but I really didn't like it. In fact, it got so weird and annoying that I literally walked out near the end.
Looking at the seiyuus... oh wow this is a star studded cast
Everyone's suggesting Devilman Crybaby here, how about The Tatami Galaxy? It's made by the same guy, and it's just as remarkable.
Hey Chris! I've been a big fan for about a year now and I'm really happy that you're reviewing these lesser known movies that barely make it to the states. To be honest, The Night Is Short was a movie I was surprised made it to any cinemas in the US. It's definitely a movie that affected the way I've seen romance movies. There's an anime series that Yuasa also made which is based in the same world as this movie. It's a 12 episode series called Tatami Galaxy. I won't spoil anything but it's a gem that deserves a lot of credit. I believe it's available on Crunchy Roll. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. Anyway, that's for keeping us away from terrible movies!
The Tatamy Galaxy is an actual masterpiece
Have you read any of Haruki Murakami's books ? I've been a fan of anime for a long time, but there's only so much of them, and then I discovered Murakami's books and oh my god, they're good! Wild sheep chase, Hard-boiled wonderland, and really all of them. they're weird, deep, captivating.. I think every anime fan would enjoy them..
It was a really interesting filmI like the way the night was long and never endingIt made me feel as though I could do more with my time and be more prone to explore the city at night
watch tatami galaxy ! its in the same universe as this movie. and perhaps even better than this.
Just caught it tonight! You’re absolutely right - it’s entirely arresting
Really? Nobody recommending Ping Pong The Animation by Masaki Yuaasa? That kinda little bit dissapointing :)
Please watch tatami galaxy
The real question: Did Chris watch Jojos Bizarre Adventure?
Do sword of the stranger anime review please
Chris, you should review Dragon Super once the dub is over.
Saw it in theatres. The sound track was amazing and that last musical had some hilarious humor. Not s single boring moment visually. Would watch it again in theatres if I could
Watch Tatami galaxy and Ping pong, the other Yuasa great works
Ranuyasha ur probably right
Can you review The Humchback of Notre Dame? I just listened to Hellfire and got chills, and I’m curious about how you fell about it.
Wonderful film, have not seen anything like it before. Had me smiling throughout!
I wanna see this so bad ahhhhhhh
god i love this director, both tatami galaxy and ping pong are probably my favorite series of all time, not just in anime, and his movies are good too
I absolutely love Tatami Galaxy. But this movie wasn't as good. Its pretty and well acted but didn't have the same charm to offset the weridness as tatami galaxy had.
The into. wow
chris watch the berserk trilogy, or the older version(1997).
good review, I might get this on blu-ray
A man named senpai...
This was an extremely interesting film. I loved the traveling musical arc/subplot. The third act looked like it was partially inspired by Paprika, another one of my favorite anime films.
Hope there's a Toronto screening. Masaaki Yuasa is always a delight to see.
I JUST LOVE THE INTRO!
GROPING WOMEN WILL NEVER GET OLD!
I would say the experience was similar to a game of taboo while having a good acid trip.And the whole subconsious scene was A+ for me.
Man, you should definitely review some of the other Yuasa's works, especially The Tatami Galaxy, which is basically the Parent Story for this movie. I think is on Crunchyroll :)
cool, i'll check it out
I've been dying to see this but can't find it anywhere
He also did Devilman Crybaby.
Where is the attack on Titan review, Chris? WHERE IS IT?!
Very nice review Chris this would be a movie to go see for sure.
That intro was lit !
Just got back from watching it in an empty theater. They gave me a shot glass for some reason.
I swear I love ya Chris but the background is to blue and dark and annoys the shit out of me. Your older videos had a nice bright background, so what the hell.
I'm super curious about this now. 🤔
I'm sad I missed it :(
Chris, you sound like you could be describing a David Lynch movie.
So Jeremy Jahns uploads his Happytime Murders review on Wednesday, while Chris is reviewing some anime movie no one’s heard about? Yeah that makes sense. P.S. I am a fan of Chris
Because this movie is good and that movie is shitty
Do the happytime murders review
Review fullmetal alchemist brotherhood or one punch man PLS!!!!!!!
Please review "Violet Evergarden." That show is a masterpiece and not enough people have talked about.
its average. violet was the only somewhat decent character and even her development was too quick and not executed well
Do another blu Ray collection video please
I agree with Chris, the film feels like a dream and the more I think about it and reflect on it, the more and more I want to watch it again!!My only criticism is that the main characters (Otohime and Senpai) could've used a little more exposition as far as their backgrounds, which are a little vague from the get go. That's not to say you become connected with the characters once the film sets in, but I would've loved to know who they were and how they got to the night in question in the first place. Otherwise an amazing film!
4:30 Chris, the Protagonists are young adults college students, not teenagers, but I guess your interpretation works in both ways
Man, watch tatami Galaxy! It's a 12. Episode anime on the same universe of the movie, it almost turns out like a meta history
I am thoroughly ashamed at the theater in my country don't even promote or even bother to show anime films like this which could have been mine blowing or something new and refreshing aside from the constant generic shooting action type of movies that they show almost all the time.Way to go Puerto Rico -_-
Chris, you must tell me, where did you get that shirt, I must have it?
Do a dog pound review
Can you please review an old mosnter THE RELIC, i love it. Came out in 1997. Do it like a TBT. Also, deep impact, anaconda, phantoms, volcano. Movies i grew up with. The Relic.
ARG!!! I am so annoyed that I missed seeing this in theaters! My grandma and I were watching Spirited Away in preparation for a local film discussion group [it went great w/ some pretty amazing insights]. BUT STILL I am soooo pissed I MISSED THIS MOVIE! It looks great and I was fully intending to see it in theaters! DARN IT ALL! Very helpful and great review, though, Chris S.!! Thank you! I love your reviews.
Please do a review for Devilman Crybaby (2018). It's a masterpiece.
It’s like they couldn’t decide between names so they just stuck two together.
Hey Chris! Great review as always......Can you please review Saving Private Ryan.IMO, It’s the greatest war movie ever and its a fantastic film with characters with actual character and they also serve purpose, soldiers with different attitudes and personalities unlike some movies where everyone has the same attitude, great twist at the end, amazing action sequences and also enough dialogue to give character to these soldiers to make us care about them if they die.I cant say if they die or not because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it....My rating=9.6/10My grade=A+Predictions for Chris=A+
