An anime adaptation of Kotoyama’s vampire romance manga Call of the Night is officially in the works, and set to land in July 2022.
The manga centers on a man who meets a vampire and is quickly thrown into a whole new world that he must navigate. The anime adaptation got a brief teaser trailer that highlights some of the animation style and what to expect from the tone and music from the series.
A key visual and brief look at some of the character designs were released alongside the trailer. Tetsuya Miyanishi and Tomoyuki Itamura are set to run the production of the series at studio LIDENFILMS, with Michiko Yokote attached as a composer and Haruka Sagawa on board to design characters.
“One sleepless night, Ko slips out to walk the streets. Life after dark is a revelation,” reads the official synopsis for the manga. “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!”
