On a mysterious night that seems to last for a year, an ordinary college student continues to chase one of his underclassmen, a girl with black hair—the girl of his dreams. Up until now, he has been relying on a simple plan, which is to calculatingly bump into her every day while making it seem like a meaningful coincidence. However, his efforts remain futile as their relationship is not progressing at all. Meanwhile, the black-haired girl believes that everything is connected by fate and endeavors to experience as many new things as possible, leaving it all for destiny to decide. While strolling along the lively streets of Kyoto, she discovers that the very beginning of her fateful journey—a book she had as a child—is currently being sold in a second-hand bookstore. Upon knowing this, the college student eyes another opportunity to run into her "by chance": this time, he hopes to get the book before she does and finally grasp the thread of fate that could connect their hearts.

Encoder's Notes

This masterpiece got a dub recently along with improved fansubs from MTBB, so I threw them all together in this release. The only thing I changed here is the ending song typesetting because I absolutely hated how unreadable it originally was. Earlier, we had like four encodes for this movie but I felt they could still be improved, so I encoded it again and removed all the old ones.

The dub is… okay? But not something I’d recommend. What I would recommend though, is that you watch The Tatami Galaxy, if you haven’t already. While it’s not directly related, some of its characters make cameo appearances in this movie. And it’s one of my all time favorites.

MTBB for the subtitles
couscous for the ending song
MaruChanSubs for the translation

As a film that includes a dancing slav squad, it’s inherently a masterpiece.


A fantastic movie about living in the present and seeing the connections in front of you. Beautifully animated and fun from start to finish.


Anime embodiment of modern epicureanism. Or if you like it less pretentious; a tribute to all who live in the present.


A joyous, eclectic ride showcasing Yuasa’s endless talent that brims with potent charisma, telling its viewers to live one night at a time.


The Girl With Black Hair is a Mary Sue


Yuasa at his finest. Strange visuals galore support this over the top adventure that at its core is a myriad of metaphors about love & life

    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
