Kotoyama's Vampire Manga Call of the Night Gets TV Anime Next July

posted on by Alex Mateo

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. An official website opened for the anime on Thursday, and it unveiled a teaser promotional video, visual, cast, and staff. The video reveals and previews the theme song "Yofukashi no Uta" (Call of the Night) by Creepy Nuts.

The cast includes:

Gen Sato as Kо̄ Yamori

Sora Amamiya as 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.

Kotoyama drew an illustration to commemorate the anime's announcement:

Character designer Sagawa also drew an illustration:

Viz Media licensed the Call of the Night manga, and it released the fourth volume in English on August 10. It describes the manga:

Nanakusa is a vampire. That's okay with human Ko. He wants to be one too. But transformation doesn't come that easily...

When 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 Yamori'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. Shogakukan published the eighth compiled book volume on July 16, and it will publish the ninth volume on November 18.
