Call of the Night anime has ranked first for the first time in the seventh week of Anime Corner’s Summer 2022 polls. The latest episode managed to impress over 7.7% of the voters and narrowly managed to escape the second-ranked Vermeil in Gold.
The two were followed by Lycoris Recoil, Uncle From Another World, and Summer Time Rendering (which still isn’t available worldwide). It’s interesting to note that Call of the Night is also only the third title to make it to the top of this season’s charts, the other two being Lycoris Recoil and Uncle From Another World (which only managed to dethrone Lycoris once, in Week 4). Check out the top 10 for the past week below:

The Call of the Night (Yofukashi no Uta) is a romance vampire manga by Kotoyama. The manga started serialization in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 2019. Viz Media licensed the manga in English and describes the plot as:
One night, sleepless Yamori slips out of his home to walk the streets of his town. Life after dark is a revelation! Especially when he meets flirtatious Nanakusa… She’s a lot more fun to share the night with than old drunks on park benches. When she invites him to spend the night at her place in an abandoned building, he’s stoked! But then he awakens to kisses on his neck with a little too much bite to them…
