Japan 2017 93 mins. In Japanese with subtitles

A free-wheeling adventure through college-aged Otome’s (voiced by Hanazawa Kana) alcohol-, passion-, and used book-injected evening as her Senpai (voiced by Hoshino Gen) struggles to put himself in enough “coincidental” encounters so that Otome will realize he’s interested in her. Yuasa (Lu over the Wall) directs this adaptation of the Tomihiko Morimi novel, implementing his distinctive style to push the limits of how much literary abstraction can be drawn out in animated imagery.
