Summer Time Rendering Season 2 Release Date: What Happened at the End of Season 1?

Throughout the spring and summer of 2022, viewers were kept on the edge of their seats by one of the best mystery anime of the year: Summertime Rendering. Fans of the anime are eagerly awaiting the premiere of the second season, as nearly a year has passed since the premiere of the first.

The manga Summertime Rendering, by Yasuki Tanaka, inspired the anime of the same name. The plot centers on Ajiro Shinpei, a youngster who had left his home island but returned after the death of a loved one. During his stay, he learned several strange and unsettling details about the island’s environment.

Summer Time Rendering Season 2 Release Date

According to sources, Unfortunately for the audience, OLM’s Summertime Rendering will unlikely return for a second season. There was no more material for OLM studios to adapt into an anime because the first season had already covered the complete tale presented in the book.

Despite the tight quarters, OLM was able to adapt the whole tale from the manga’s 139 chapters into the anime’s 25 episodes.

OLM has decided to include more manga material in each episode than is typical for an animation studio, which typically adapts up to three chapters from the manga.

The studio has adapted 5.56 chapters for each episode, which some viewers may feel is too little time spent on each one. However, the audience response has been positive, with the anime garnering an 8.54 average rating on MyAnimeList.

So, don’t get your hopes up, Summertime Rendering fans, for a second season.

What Happened at the End of Summer Time Rendering Season 1?

Ajiro Shinpei and Ushio Kofune reconciled towards the end of the first season of Summertime Rendering after teaming up to vanquish the Shadows. Ushio was a major character in the anime, joining Shinpei in their fight against the Shadows, despite being reported dead in the first episode.

Ushio, realizing that Shinpei had already returned to the beginning of the incident, used her final minutes to travel back in time and leave a voicemail for Hizuru Minakata on her phone, detailing the Shadows’ involvement in the catastrophe. This is how Hizuru learned of the Shadows and made her way to Hiroshima.

Now that the Shadows were gone for good, Ajiro Shinpei went back to the same moment he had originally arrived at Ushio’s burial. This time around was different, though, because Shinpei couldn’t remember the events of the prior time loops. Since no one had died during this cycle and the festival was drawing near, the attitude on the island was generally upbeat.

A promise between Shinpei and Ushio from one of the earlier cycles popped into their heads at the festival, and both of their memories were brought back.

Summertime Rendering Season 2 Plotline: What Can We Expect From It?

Since his parents passed away, Shinpei Ajiro has been living with the Kofunes and their two kids. After Ushio tragically drowns trying to save a little girl, he abandons his studies in Tokyo and goes home. He becomes suspicious about the true reason for Ushio’s death after learning, at the funeral, that bruises were discovered around her neck.

He investigates the circumstances surrounding Ushio’s death but finds nothing to support his suspicion that it was a murder. Mio is reminded of the folktale of “Shadows” whenever something strange or unbelievable happens; according to this tale, if you ever meet your Shadow, it will foretell your death.

Shinpei braves the shadows to carry out Ushio’s dying wish and safeguard Mio.

The likelihood of there being a second season of the OLM production Summertime Rendering seems low, which may come as a disappointment to the show’s loyal audience. Because the whole tale that was described in the manga was adapted into the first season of the anime, there was no more source material for OLM studios to adapt into an anime after that season.
