Kou Yamori seems like a typical middle school student on the surface. Relatively good at studies and amiable with his classmates, he puts a lot of effort into maintaining this facade. One day, however, he decides to stop pretending and quits school, developing insomnia as a result of having no daytime outlet for his energy. When taking walks alone at night, he feels marginally better, though he is aware that his inability to sleep should be considered a serious problem.

On one such walk, Kou meets a weird girl, Nazuna Nanakusa, who diagnoses the cause of his sleeplessness: despite making changes in his life, he is still holding himself back from experiencing true freedom. She says that he won't be able to sleep unless he is satisfied with how he spends his waking hours. When it appears that she has resolved his current worries, Nazuna invites him back to her apartment to share her futon. After a while, unaware that he is only feigning unconsciousness, she leans over him—and bites his neck!

Call of the Night is a romcom story that favors a developmental focus over the comedy. Despite the sort of odd direction it went in near the middle, it never fell completely out of line, and the characters would always make up for odd decisions in the writing. This is worth the read if you want cute and fun characters that are still very down to earth with their own feelings they need to work out. The art is also outstanding, for what it's worth with the sort of toned-down mood it offers.

9/10 for a casual read, if you're looking for something "more" then ...

For like over 70 fucking chapters now its been going a completely different direction about all sorts of boring dogshit. Complete change in the direction of the story. Its become a boring stereotypical shounen over halfway through where in the first quarter there wasn't even a hint of such dogshit showing up.

With the anime adaption about to finish a lot of people will be looking to pickup the manga where the anime left off and are in for a complete shift in the direction of the story. If you're looking for more of the same great story from the anime you are in for a ...

The story has an extremely strong start. And if this was all there was to it, this would be a great work. The problem is the author decided to move away from the dynamic between the two main character characters, and decided to change the genre several different times. The story expands to explore all the different outcomes of Vampire's various relationships with Humans, and by god, they're all sad.

Without spoiling too much, there's this MASSIVE digress where both main characters are presented as some kind of exception to basically all the rules established. Then, after the author spends literally over one hundred chapters ...
