Summertime render summary

After the death of his parents, Shinpei Ajiro lived with the Kofune sisters: Mio and Ushio, but has since moved to Tokyo to live alone. But after Ushio drowns trying to save young Shiori Kobayakawa, he returns home to mourn her departure. However, the bruises around Ushio's neck cast doubt on the cause of death. Shinpei takes a step back, convinced there must be another explanation. Dangerous beings haunt the islanders, and a vision of the deceased Ushio asks them to "save Mio" as their final request.

He's sure something is afoot and that Ushio's death is just one piece of the puzzle. With the help of Mio and 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 that future seems. Darkness invades his home island. How much more suffering will he endure before he finds the right way to save everything?
