About the Manga
Viz Media licensed the Call of the Night manga, and it describes the manga as such:
Nanakusa is a vampire. That’s okay with human Kо̄. He wants to be one too. But transformation doesn’t come that easily…When Nazuna invites Kо̄ to spend the night at her place in an abandoned building, he’s stoked! But then he awakens to kisses on his neck with a little too much bite to them… Is it just the delicious taste of his blood that makes her meet him night after night for late-night adventures, conversation and…naps? Or something else? Then, when a cute girl from Yamori’s past shows up and competes for his attention, his budding relationship with the undead is put to the test!
Call of the Night is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kotoyama. It has been serialized in Shogakukan’s “Weekly Shōnen Sunday” since August 2019.
