Two summer showings of director Masaaki Yuasa’s romantic comedy about one epic night in Kyoto set for August 21 & 22.

GKIDS has unveiled a brand-new trailer, poster and images for director Masaaki Yuasa’s animated comedy feature about one epic night in Kyoto, Night is Short, Walk On Girl:

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.

Presented by Fathom Events and GKIDS, Night is Short, Walk On Girl debuts in U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, August 21 with an encore showing on Wednesday, August 22 at 7:00 p.m. local time (both dates). The film will also receive a limited theatrical release by GKIDS starting Wednesday, August 22. A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website and (theaters and participants are subject to change). All showings feature the film in its original Japanese language, subtitled in English.

Tickets for Night is Short, Walk On Girl are available at or and participating box offices.
