Character designer, Haruka Sagawa, created the illustration, which features the vampire Nazuna Nanakusa falling through a starry night sky with a mischievous look on her face. The city is also illuminated below and a full moon hangs in the sky overhead. In some versions of the artwork, you can see Ko’s shoe off to the side.

The new banner for Call of the Night’s official Twitter account features a similar illustration, but you’re able to fully see that Ko is falling through the sky along with Nazuna. (Poor Ko! Hopefully, Nazuna will catch him!)
