A 14-year-old boy named Ko Yamori ventures out at night without telling anyone. He is enjoying the moonlit streets while thinking about his life in "Call of the Night" Episode 1.

However, there is one problem – Ko finds it difficult to sleep at night. During one of his late-night excursions, he comes across a mysterious girl who claims she has come to save him.

The girl, named Nazuna, is a vampire and offers to become Ko's companion and gift him immortality. However, for that to happen, he has to turn into a vampire and has to fall in love with one.

"Wracked by insomnia and wanderlust, Ko Yamori is driven onto the moonlit streets every night in an aimless search for something he can’t seem to name. His nightly ritual is marked by purposeless introspection — until he meets Nazuna, who might just be a vampire! Ko's new companion could offer him dark gifts and a vampire’s immortality," read the official "Call of the Night" anime synopsis, as per Sentai.

"But there are conditions that must be met before Ko can sink his teeth into vampirism, and he'll have to discover just how far he's willing to go to satisfy his desires before he can heed the Call of the Night!" it continued.
