Nanakusa is a vampire. That’s okay with the human Ko. He also wants to be one of them. But the transformation doesn’t come so easily…
When Nazuna invited Ko to spend the night at her place in an abandoned building, he was hooked! But then he woke up kissing his neck with a bit too much bite… Was it the delicious taste of his blood that made her meet him night after night for late-night adventures, conversations and . .. take a nap? Or something else? Then, when a cute girl from Yamori’s past shows up and vie for his attention, his budding relationship with the undead is put to the test!
