Last month we met Akira Asai from the Call of the Night anime, based on the manga by Kotoyama, and now we have another spotlight previewing a member of the cast. This time around it’s Seri Kikyo, who will be voiced in the adaptation by Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna in Sword Art Online).
Check out her promo below, followed by a closer look at the character design.
As previously reported, the anime director is Tomoyuki Itamura, and the chief director is Tetsuya Miyanishi, who previously worked on Josee, The Tiger and the Fish. The scripts are being written by Michiko Yokote of Bleach and Cowboy Bebop. Character design falls to Haruka Sagawa of Happy-Go-Lucky Days.
The original manga debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump during the summer of 2019. In Japan, the compiled volumes are published by Shogakukan. VIZ Media releases the manga in English, and gave this description of it:
Nanakusa is a vampire. That’s okay with human Ko. He wants to be one too. But transformation doesn’t come that easily…
When Nazuna invites Ko 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… Is it just the delicious taste of his blood that makes her meet him night after night for late-night adventures, conversation and…naps? Or something else? Then, when a cute girl from Yamori’s past shows up and competes for his attention, his budding relationship with the undead is put to the test!
