The Call of the Night (Yofukashi no Uta) is originally 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…
