Singer Aimer and Director Ryo-timo's original short anime project Night World (Yoru no Kuni) which is a companion animation series to Aimer's album "Walpurgis." The first episode is themed by the song "Trill" from the album.

Welcome to the Night World. Anxiety, scary and sad things that make you think in the dark. Then more you can't sleep, the more you feel suffering. All right. You can't sleep because you're trying to find something. The night is the perfect place to find it. Let's take a break tonight. It's a dark place, but please explore it freely. You see, the night goes on.

So...I basically had no idea this anime even existed until I randomly stumbled across it on a website where I often downloaded anime. I looked up info about it and decided to watch the first episode on a whim...and boy, am I glad I did! Seriously, what the hell is this anime?! Where did it come from?! And why is it so friggin' amazing?! Yoru no Kuni, meant to be some kind of animated promotional vehicle for the singer Aimer's newest album, directed by some dude named Ryo-timo (real name Ryosuke Sawa, who worked on shows like Noein and Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad), completely took read more

The Night. With its darkness, it paves a path for the bright stars. With its darkness, man falls tried, ascending to the world of dreams, in hopes one does not face towards the nightmare realm instead. With its darkness, fears allude and tension arises. The darkness is scary after all.

Welcome to the Night World. Your friend, Yoru, is at your service.

'Yoru no Kuni' or 'Night World' is a short ONA that I found to have greater pleasures than I initially thought it could. It follows a 3 part story about individuals who have faced a loss (not necessarily death) in some shape or read more

I just stumbled upon this hidden underrated gem, and oh boy I didn't regret watching it. I don't write reviews since I'm too lazy to write, but this anime needs some attention, so this is my first review. (it's not gonna be that long)

This is such a unique anime for me because it's not like any other mainstream anime such us today, and it's just shocking that it's not well known considering it's a short anime with such a fantastic narrative and heartwarming story.

The third episode hit me like a truck, It's just so relatable. Finding the path on what you'd love to do, you read more

Yoru No Kuni tells stories about problems kids face like moving on from loss or jealously between friends, its an age old story with very common themes and nothing new or original is necessarily presented, the characters are not especially memorable either.

However the music and visuals are stunning and make this short series stand out in an absolutely magical way, if you enjoy series that are short and to the point but carry strong emotional impact with how they are presented, you will enjoy this story and beautiful night world it takes place in.

This work seems like a first time production for a new studio, read more
