After his parents died, Shinpei Ajiro lived with the Kofune sisters, Mio and Ushio, but he has since moved to live on his own in Tokyo. But after Ushio drowns while trying to save the young Shiori Kobayakawa, he returns home to mourn her departure. However, bruises around Ushio's neck bring her cause of death into question.

Taking a step back, Shinpei becomes convinced there must be another explanation. Dangerous entities roam among the islanders, and a vision of deceased Ushio asks him to "save Mio" as her final request. He is certain that something is afoot—and Ushio's death is only a piece of the puzzle.

With the help of Mio and various others, Shinpei struggles to forge a future in which he, his friends, and family can stay alive. But the more he investigates, the more impossible such a future seems. This darkness infiltrates his home island. Just how much more suffering will he go through before finding the right path to save it all?

Story: 9

This is probably one of the best manga I've read in 2021, just because the plot ain't boring at all, the characters are not stupid and really explaining the loop thing and even their plan in fighting the shadows, which I like. I really like how the dimension thingy and how they really use ...

Mixed Feelings
So I decided to give the manga a go because I have seen the first episode of the anime (heard live action are in talks too) and was dying to know what happens with Shinpei figuring out how to solve everyone’s evil doppelgängers. Now I will say that the story was unnecessary long winded and pretty boring at times because it kept repeating the whole situation with Shinpei always been reversed in time without a single hint. It just made me care less about the characters but more on the mystery side of things on why these shadows are appearing on the island in the ...

Preliminary (13/139 eps)
Stop. Lewding. Girls. Under. The. Age. Of. 15. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Summertime Render is a manga that I decided to give a go when browsing in my local bookshop, the cover art was very seaside adjacent and the front cover of volume 1 reminded me of a mid 2000's style that I found in a lot of Shojo manga at the time. I'd held off on reading it for a while, 159 chapters seeming like a mountain to climb when I was just getting back into the Japanese stories I used to love - however I regret not dropping this one sooner.
