Plot Synopsis via AllTheAnime:

“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?

And that is all of the information revealed so far. This will be the first ever official English supported release of the film plus Anime Limited also have Lu Over the Wall coming very soon in early July this year! If you’re interested to hear more about Night is Short we also have a feature post with AUKN interviewing Masaaki Yuasa himself!
