Masaaki Yuasa’s "The Night is Short, Walk on Girl" Wins Big at Ottawa Animation Festival
For the first time in the history of the Ottawa Animation Festival, one director had two films in competition for the feature film category. Naturally, the director in question was none other than Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Ping Pong the Animation), and his The Night is Short, Walk on Girl anime film ended up taking the Best Feature award home.
Based on the novel by Tatami Galaxy‘s Tomihiko Morimi, The Night is Short, Walk on Girl premiered in Japan back in April. Here’s a trailer from earlier this year:
The Ottawa Animation Festival was held in Ottawa, Canada from September 20 to 24. The other movie Yuasa had in feature film competition this year was Lu Over the Wall.
