In case you are missing out on vampire actions ever since the completion of Vanitas no Carte Season1. Here’s good news, you don’t have to wait long for the next vampire anime as Kotoyama’s vampire manga Call of the Nights will be receiving an anime adaptation by July 2022. Apart from his other manga, Dgashi Kashi, this is his only work that got accepted for an anime adaptation.
Be it anime or live-action; vampire shows are something that we simply can’t see enough of. Just like shamans, demons, titans, and ghouls, vampires have become a perennial element in the anime culture. None of us must have expected that a western idea could gain this much popularity in the East. But then again, that’s how versatile these blood-sucking beings are that they can be forged into any genre from horror to romance.
Call of the Night Synopsis
The story centers around an abnormal relationship between a human and a vampire. Ko, the human boy, fell in love with a vampire and wanted to become one too. However, human to vampire transformation isn’t something that can be attained so easily. Nanakusa, the vampire girl, goes as far as inviting him to her abandoned building just to taste his sweet blood from his neck.
However, everything changes when a cute girl from Yamori’s past shows up to compete for Ko’s attention. Ko finds himself trapped in a tug of war between two cute girls. Can his budding relationship with the undead pass this test or love? Or giving up on Nanakusa is something he should really do? So, it’s safe to say that the anime will be a blend of vampire and harem genres.

Call of the night anime adaptation will be premiering on Fuji TV’s Noitamina programming block by July 2022. The exact release date has not been revealed.
