The Call of the Night manga was licenced by Viz Media, and on September 13 the ninth volume will be made available in English. As it relates to the manga:
A vampire, Nanakusa is. Human Ko is fine with it. The same is true for him. However, change is not always simple…
Ko is thrilled when Nazuna asks him to stay the night at her apartment in an abandoned building! He then awakens to neck kisses that have a touch too much bite to them. Does she just meet him every night for late-night excursions, talk, and…naps because she loves the taste of his blood? or another thing? Then, Yamori’s developing connection with the undead is put to the test when a gorgeous girl from his past appears and vies for his attention!
In August 2019, Kotoyama (Dagashi Kashi) released the Call of the Night manga in the Weekly Shonen Sunday publication of Shogakukan.
On July 15, Shogakukan released the 12th volume of a collected work.
