What do we know about Call of the Night?
Call of the Night is about 14-year-old Ko Yamori and his nighttime walks due to insomnia. He meets a mysterious girl who introduces herself as Nazuna Nanakusa and asks Ko if he has sleeping problems.
Nanzuna hangs out with Ko when he says yes, until he admits he’s ready to go to sleep. But Ko isn’t ready to go home yet, so Nazuna invites him to sleep with her.
This turns out to be an abandoned building with a double futon already ready for use. Ko tries to leave, but Nazuna calms him down and Ko pretends to be asleep.
Nazuna steps in and bites Ko’s neck. When Ko sits up, Nazuna says that a very large mosquito has bitten him. He doesn’t believe her, leading to Ko asking if he’s a vampire now.
Nazuna laughs at him and explains how the vampire system works. First comes love, then a vampire comes to drink your blood, then you become a vampire.
But Ko hasn’t been in love, so how does he know when he has? What is the difference between true love and admiration? How can a 14-year-old wander through town at night and not be caught by the police?
I can’t wait to find out!
