The vampire anime Call of the Night (aka Yofukashi no Uta) has finally premiered with its first episode.
Being a huge fan of anything vampire, I could not be more excited. Especially as episode 1 was even better (and creepier and funnier) than I had hoped.
Along with the gorgeous art style, one of the standouts of the first episode of the anime, of course, (and subsequent ones, hopefully) is the character of Nazuna Nanakusa.
Right from her cutely braided purple hair, to her chic, sexy looks and the suggestive, naughty way she talks, right down to how she light-heartedly says “Gomen ne” (“I’m sorry”) after she has bitten Kou’s neck and sucked his blood.
A nonchalant way that is superbly voiced by one of Japan’s most successful voice actresses. Even as she then has to act supremely embarrassed two minutes later, as Nazuna blushes as she talks about love.
So, who voices Nazuna Nanakusa in Call of the Night so beautifully? And how many other hit anime series have you heard her act in?
