We recently revealed our plans for the release of the film Night is Short, Walk on Girl that arrives on 25th June. Well today we’re delighted to bring you a full unboxing of our Ltd Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray+DVD set! Have a look below!
MCM London Comic Con attendees: Before getting to tell you about the product itself and whatnot, we’re happy to confirm that the first opportunity to get your hands on this release will be next weekend at the MCM London Comic Con event (25-27th May 2018). We will have copies of this available to purchase (while stock lasts) from our stand, stall #1600 in the South Hall.
ABOUT “NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL”
Let director Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy, Lu Over the Wall, MIND GAME) walk you through an eccentric, colourful journey of love, life and youthful exuberance unlike anything you’ve seen before.
Synopsis: “Senpai” is a man smitten with his inscrutable junior, The Girl with Black Hair. Although he plans to woo her by engineering a series of “coincidental” encounters, he reckons without the exploratory nature of this girl as she roams through an abstract, bustling night in Kyoto. From pub crawls to festivals, book fairs to impromptu musical performances, the night is short and there’s much to take in – how can “Senpai” possibly grab the attention of the apple of his eye?
Check out a trailer for the film (that was also originally published prior to our theatrical screenings last year) below:
WHAT’S PLANNED FOR THE RELEASE?
We will be releasing the film on both Blu-ray and DVD. There will be a Ltd Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray+DVD set, as well as standard Blu-ray and DVD versions available from 25th June 2018.
The Ltd Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray+DVD set will come packed in a rigid case with a digipack to hold the Blu-ray and DVD discs. Also included is a 52-page art book that is divided into three sections; Characters, Settings and then in a change of pace we’re including an essay written by Andrew Osmond (author of 100 Animated Feature Films). It works as a great companion to the film and is a great read whether you’re familiar with the film, or perhaps other titles of Masaaki Yuasa’s, or not.
If that wasn’t enough, on the disc themselves you’ll also get an interview with director Masaaki Yuasa and there’s also some Japanese previews of the film too.
In case you’re not aware, the film is in Japanese with English subtitles only. (No English language dub has been produced for this.) The audio option for watching the main feature is Japanese 5.1.

The rigid case has a spot-uv finish to give it some extra shine in the light! It’s not something you can show off well in static images, so here’s an example of how it will look:
Now let’s get back to showing you more of the finished product:
