Shinpei Ajiro is the main character of Summer Time Rendering.

In the anime, Shinpei receives word that Ushio drowned. He decides to return to the island for Ushio's funeral on July 22nd. Along the way, strange things have been happening in Shinpei's dreams as well as in real life.

Ushio's younger sister, Mio, greeted him upon his arrival on Hitogashima Island. She told Shinpei everything that happened after he went to the city. Shinpei runs into his friend Sou at the funeral, who reveals that Ushio died from strangulation rather than drowning.

This is the beginning of Shinpei's suspicions about the island. He also happens to meet a girl who resembles Mio. It was apparently her doppelganger.

Shinpei, who is perplexed by the events on the island, is brutally murdered in the anime's first episode. He discovered the truth about the Shadow Sickness and most likely who murdered Ushio.

He also noticed that the color of his other eye had changed. After being killed on the island, it was later revealed that he possessed the ability to reset time. This is due to the fact that he possesses the eye that was lost by an otherworldly being known as Mother.

Anime-only viewers may be perplexed by the endgame between Shinpei and Ushio in the Summer Time Rendering manga. After all, in the anime, Ushio is shown to be dead before being reborn as a Shadow.

The most likely character for them to end up with Shinpei is Mio, who has a huge crush on Shinpei.

But, as one plot narrative after another is revealed, everything will fall into place, just like Ushio and Shinpei's relationship. They are, after all, mutually interested in one another.

Even if Ushio had returned in the form of a shadow, Shinpei could not deny Ushio's existence. He is constantly struggling to accept the fact that Ushio has died.

On the other hand, if you're a Mio fan, don't be put off watching the anime or reading the manga. In the end, she came to support Shinpei and Ushio's relationship. She is also the last person to point out where Ushio is after Shinpei returns to Hitogashima island for the final time.
