The original Summer Time Rendering manga is serialized by Shueisha in their Shōnen Jump+ digital manga magazine. The story follows Shinpei Ajiro, a young man whose hometown is a small, isolated island called Hitogashima in Wakayama Prefecture. It's been some two years since Shinpei was last visited his hometown, but he is called back to attend the funeral of Ushio Kofune, a childhood friend and relative by marriage, who died in a seemingly tragic accident at sea. After attending the hastily assembled funeral, Shinpei begins to suspect that something far more sinister is going on...

Each character stands ankle-deep in the water while the island of Hitogashima and a sky full of fluffy cumulus clouds looms in the background.


Summer Time Rendering is scheduled to broadcast in Japan in 2022.
