When Nazuna invites Ko to spend the night with her in an abandoned building, he is thrilled! But then he wakes up and feels kisses on his neck that have a little too much bite ... Is it just the delicious taste of his blood that makes her hang out with him night after night for late night To experience night adventures, to chat and ... to sleep? Or something else? Then, when a cute girl from Yamori's past shows up and vies for his attention, his burgeoning relationship with the undead is put to the test!
