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.
