What Is Call of the Night About?
Kotoyama introduces us to two interesting characters in an intriguing world through Call of the Night. It tells us the story of a typical schoolboy named Kou Yamori. Kou is friendly with everyone and is a good student since he is up to date with his studies. However, the boring life he was living felt like an act he was putting on in front of other people. Tired of it all, he decides to quit school and do nothing. However, this causes him to develop insomnia. The only way he found helpful in dealing with his sleeplessness was by going on night walks. By doing this, he did not know that his world would change.
On one of his walks, he meets a girl named Nanakusa Nazuna. She appears to be like Kou. However, the reason for not sleeping at night is a result of her being a vampire. After spending time with Nazuna, Kou decides that he wants to be a vampire, too, but for this, he needs to fall in love with Nazuna. This vampire-romance plot thickens when Kou’s childhood friend, Asai Akira, shows up again in his life.
