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.

Ya can’t just act on instinct and expect things to work out.
Anger, frustration
View them objectively and they become weapons.

From the outset, Summertime Rendering has the air of a slice-of-life anime with a lighthearted and clean story. But as the story goes on, one can find themselves drawn into a storyline that is amazingly intriguing and engaging.

Mixed Feelings
Summertime Render

I don't know if I wanted to praise the anime for the fact that I could hardly stop watching it. Or to express my sadness about how this show got worse and worse with each episode. This is of course often the case that series lose quality over time, but here it was impressively fast. Especially from episode 19 on, you couldn't talk about quality anymore, it felt like the writer was changed and some amateur grabbed his chair.

And the golden rule... if in an interesting anime, a white-haired evil loli with different colored eyes appears, then you already know that the ...

This anime starts out strong. Good characters, interesting mystery, very nice aesthetic. It has one major flaw which makes it pretty obvious by the middle of the season that it is going to flop really hard by the end. And that obvious flaw is the really soft magic system.

-no spoilers-
It became really boring really fast to watch our heroes overcome their adversaries just to have a "cliffhanger" at the end of every episode because "HAHA bet you didn't see that coming!!" and then the series casually changes the rules of the game as we move along. By the end of the first half of the ...
