Ko meets his childhood friend while wandering the streets at night in "Call of the Night" Episode 3.

The official Twitter account of the anime has shared spoiler stills and a brief summary of Episode 3.

During his third night out, he meets his childhood friend named Akira. She is walking back home and asks Ko what was he doing alone at night.

In the previous episode, Ko ventured out at night. He was happy about the second night out. He encountered Nazuna again and they started talking about drinking blood.

She said drinking a person's blood under certain circumstances can turn them into a vampire. She added that's how vampires produce their offspring.

Nazuna informed him that sucking blood was like copulating and eating at the same time. Meanwhile, she also reminded Ko about his mission. He told her he remembers it and announced he wanted to become a vampire.

"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.

"Call of the Night," directed by Tetsuya Miyanishi, is based on the original work by Kotoyama. Its music is composed by Yoshiaki Dewa, while the sound direction is by Eriko Kimura.

The opening theme song of "Call of the Night" anime, titled "Datenshi" (Fallen Angel), is performed by Creepy Nuts. The ending theme song, "Yofukashi no Uta," is by Creepy Nuts.

"Call of the Night" Episode 3 is scheduled to air Thursday. Fans in the U.S. can watch the episode online on Hidive. The episode will live stream in Japanese with English subtitles.
