Since the death of his parents, Shinpei Ajiro had lived with the Kofune family and their two daughters—Mio and Ushio. Although he then left his home island to continue his education in Tokyo, Shinpei returns after Ushio tragically drowns during the attempted rescue of a little girl. During the funeral, his best friend informs him about bruises found around Ushio's neck, casting doubt over the cause of her death.

Suspecting a murder has taken place, Shinpei reevaluates recent events, but strange incidents only continue to transpire. Disappearing people and other unexplainable occurrences lead Mio to recall an old folktale referring to entities called "Shadows," which may not be entirely fantasy. Supposedly, an encounter with one's Shadow foretells the person's impending demise.

Facing the dark side of Hitogashima Island, Shinpei stands against his grim fate to fulfill Ushio's final will—to protect Mio.

First of all I'm Like "How the Hell it's so Under viewed!!!!!" I guess it's because of Disney+ Streaming Only :/ . The Story is just Way more intriguing than you would expect! All Characters are well Polished and have their unique and important Significance throughout the Show! The Location used in it is Real and they are Kada Port to Tomogashima Islands, Wakayama District in Japan for Real. The MC is different from all other Shonen MC's. Nowadays, Most of the MC's are like Take a Step without even thinking and what they only say is "Daijoubu = Everything will ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime sets up so nicely, and will likely have you on the edge of your seat and guessing every episode. Has a bit of everything, but I think that's the downfall of this anime. What presents itself and sets up as a very intriguing mystery with some elements of horror, just doesn't follow through with that and it causes the foundation set up in the first half of the anime to go off the rails. Yes it's still intriguing, and I enjoyed it. (8/10) It's just you'll no doubt be sighing to yourself at some ...

Summertime Render hooked me in because of the mystery angle, and kept me there as that premise developed further in the first third of the anime. And the mechanic that Shinpei is able to leverage, while certainly not unique, is always a fun one to imagine and play with.

However, as the anime progresses, the level of convolution to the lore which explains this mechanic and related phenomena ends up being off the charts. I felt extremely bogged down by this in the latter third of the anime and couldn't enjoy the story. Maybe that's because the story in the latter third ends up being fantastical ...
