“Call of the Night ss 2”: release date, announcement
The season 1 of the series “Call of the Night” was highly appreciated by the audience: from the visual picture, ending with the development of the storyline. There is enough non-triviality in the anime, there is also a lot of cuteness and romanticism. The few negative reviews are lost in the background of a large number of fans of this story, who are looking forward to continuing.
What do we know about the season 2 of the anime “Call of the Night”? Officially, the series has not yet been renewed, but the high ratings of the released season cannot go unnoticed. Critics are confident that new episodes will come out, especially considering that manga volumes keep coming out. It is too early to talk about the release date of the season 2 of the anime now, but, most likely, the premiere of new episodes will take place no earlier than July 2024.
Ko is an ordinary teenager. He goes to school, has excellent academic performance in all subjects, obeys his parents. But every day he becomes more and more alone. Ko, having received a love letter from a classmate, could not reciprocate, for which he received a rude reprimand and the additional conviction that he does not have romantic feelings for anyone at all.
The night does not bring relief: instead of sleeping and resting, Ko is faced with a dangerous problem — insomnia. There is no point in lying on the bed and waiting for the dawn. On another sleepless night, Ko decides to carefully and as quietly as possible go outside. Walking through the city at night at 14 is a great experience for a teenager. Or can he afford to buy a beer and feel like an adult already?
A chance encounter with a strange girl named Nazuna turns the guy’s world upside down. She turns out to be a vampire who tasted Ko’s blood the first night they met. But the guy was not only not afraid of this — he also wanted to become a vampire. However, this requires only one condition: to fall in love with Nazuna…
