Kou Yamori is an average middle school student who struggles with grasping the complex concept of love. Because he sees little sense in surrendering to the norm, he soon stops going to school. Plagued with insomnia due to his idleness, Kou begins roaming the lonesome streets at night.

One night, Kou encounters a bizarre girl named Nazuna Nanakusa who believes that people stay awake during the night because they are dissatisfied with how they spent their day and cannot rest until they release their inhibitions. Nazuna offers to help Kou with his sleep issues and invites him over to her place, where she convinces him to share a futon with her. Feeling uncomfortable, Kou only pretends to doze off—which is when Nazuna suddenly bites his neck, revealing herself to be a vampire!

While Kou thinks the bite will turn him into a vampire, the specifics of transforming are not that simple. In order to change, he must be bitten by someone he truly loves. Ready to let go of his dreary mortal life, Kou decides on a new goal: he will fall in love with Nazuna and become a vampire himself.

SO, I might write a better review in the future. But let me get this straight: "THIS ANIME'S FREAKING GOOD." It deserves your try! Especially if you like staying up at night, with cool visuals, cool openings, and a great MC who actually HAS PERSONALITY and SAYS WHAT HE'S THINKING. The visuals are stunning, with an art style that perfectly captures the atmosphere of nighttime adventures. The opening theme is so catchy that you'll find yourself humming it long after the episode ends. The main character is incredibly relatable and stands out because he genuinely expresses his thoughts and feelings. He isn't just a typical, ...

Mixed Feelings
As a viewer, I think I value an interesting plot with satisfying thoughtful conclusions the most. However, if I watch a less plot driven show and rather a character interaction oriented show, I like when the characters are likable or interesting and the situations they are in are done enjoyably. If you are like me, then you may not find the conclusions to the character conflicts very thoughtful or satisfying, or the MCs likable or interesting.

The issue I believe I had with this anime is that at times it seems plot driven, but in others it seems more focused on the character interactions. However, it ...

Call of the Night is one of those shows that the more you experience, the more you realize, how freaking horrendous it is. I am a manga reader, and I am an anime watcher. Albeit a year late, I am still here to tell you why this is such a monstrosity that I think it is. All aspects of this shows aside from the style are something I just can not appreciate. In my opinion, this garbage is one of the worst if not the worst coming-of-age stories ever.

The Call of the Night's plot is terribly predictable. Nothing in the anime surprises or holds ...
