A vampire action rom-com will be hitting our screens soon!
Kotoyama‘s Call of the Night (Yofukashi no Uta) manga is inspiring a television anime that will premiere in Fuji TV‘s Noitamina programming block next July.
Kotoyama drew an illustration (below) to commemorate the anime’s announcement.
Based on the manga by Dagashi Kashi creator Kotoyama, the series is named for “Yofukashi no Uta,” a song by the band Creepy Nuts. The tune originally served as the official anthem of 2019’s “Audrey’s All-Night Nippon 10th Anniversary Tour.” Now, it serves as the score for the upcoming anime’s first PV (below).
An official website opened for the anime on Thursday, and it unveiled a teaser promotional video, visual (below), cast, and staff.
ASSOCIATED CAST & STAFF
Leading the cast will be Gen Sato (Chrome in Dr. STONE) as the insomniac protagonist, Ko Yamori, and Sora Amamiya (Aqua in KONOSUBA) as the flirty “nightwalker”, Nazuna Nanakusa.
Tomoyuki Itamura (Monogatari series) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS with Tetsuya Miyanishi (Josee, The Tiger and the Fish) as the chief director. Michiko Yokote (Bleach, Shirobako, Prison School, Cowboy Bebop) is writing the scripts. Haruka Sagawa (Happy-Go-Lucky Days) is designing the characters.
Viz Media licensed the Call of the Night manga in the U.S., and it describes the series as thus:
One sleepless night, Ko slips out to walk the streets. Life after dark is a revelation! When flirtatious Nazuna invites Ko 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 Ko’s past shows up and competes for his attention, his budding relationship with the undead is put to the test.
Kotoyama (Dagashi Kashi) launched the Call of the Night manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in August 2019.
