    Night Is Short, Walk on Girl

    ★★★

    I was really rooting for her to not end up with the creepy stalker guy (the romantic interest). I don’t think the film needed romance. Just seeing her beating up perverts and getting wasted would be enough for me. 
    The music was good, it was fairly funny, the animation is unique, but it’s not my preferred style. Had to watch in dub, I imagine the sub version is better especially the musical part.

    It’s not my favourite of Kon’s films, but I think this might be the most beautiful anime film I’ve ever seen?? The art, the soundtrack, the story. What a loss to cinema he is. Not just one of the great directors of animation, but one of the great directors of film. I feel so proud that I could see the references to old Japanese films too!

    Watching a Satoshi Kon film is like it’s being injected straight into my veins. I NEED MORE DAMMIT. That chase scene at the end especially was orgasmic.
    Had to watch in dub and my only problem with it was the voice of Me-Mania just seemed wrong for the character. Hopefully I can get hold of the Japanese original at some point

    To say that this is Hosoda’s worst film shows how strong is filmography is at this point in his career. 
    I could of done without the real dad story, that seemed like a waste of time. Just give me more fucking kickass beast fights please.
