On a mysterious night that seems to last for a year, an ordinary college student continues to chase one of his underclassmen, a girl with black hair—the girl of his dreams. Up until now, he has been relying on a simple plan, which is to calculatingly bump into her every day while making it seem like a meaningful coincidence. However, his efforts remain futile as their relationship is not progressing at all.

Meanwhile, the black-haired girl believes that everything is connected by fate and endeavors to experience as many new things as possible, leaving it all for destiny to decide. While strolling along the lively streets of Kyoto, she discovers that the very beginning of her fateful journey—a book she had as a child—is currently being sold in a second-hand bookstore. Upon knowing this, the college student eyes another opportunity to run into her "by chance": this time, he hopes to get the book before she does and finally grasp the thread of fate that could connect their hearts.

"Yoru wa Mijikashi, Arukeyo Otome" (or "The Night is Short, Walk On, Young Maiden") is a film by director Masaaki Yuasa based on the similarly titled novel by author Tomihiko Morimi. If you are at all familiar with Yuasa's previous works as well as Morimi's adapations (including the Yuasa adaptation of "Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei"), there's a good chance you'll know exactly what you're getting into by watching this film.

To put it simply: this movie is an utter, frenetic delight.

The story, without spoiling too much, is a perfect match for the big screen. Covering the events of a single lively night in the imaginative world of ...

Mixed Feelings
After I finished watching this movie I felt like I missed something. It was by no means bad but the response to it all around seemed overwhelmingly positive. I didn’t want to be unfair to the movie before reviewing it so I whipped out a notepad++ to make thorough notes for it during a re-watch to make sure I didn’t miss anything. The result of that was pretty predictable, I still don’t think this movie is fantastic but I appreciate what it did right and can definitely see why people would adore it.

At its most basic, Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome (from now on Mijikashi ...

I will preface by stating I have never seen The Tatami Galaxy. This is also only the second work I have seen by Yuasa, Masaaki. I only watched it in the first place because a friend of mine suggested it. This movie has its place, this movie can even be called good. Though to me, a layman, casual anime watcher, this movie was not worth my time.

The art style is insanely unique and something worth commending but it isn't something I would want every anime to look like. At the very beginning I actually found it annoying and because of it, was hard to ...
