Summer Time Render episode 5 – Nagumo shows how to distinguish between shadows and people. A mysterious figure floating in the sky.
Summer Time Render continues to deliver crazy episodes in episode 5. Impressing should be the first and foremost thing any anime should strive to be. So far, Summer Time Render seems to be the kind of anime I’ve been waiting for since the middle of last year, after so many isekai and harem instant noodles anime.
Leave the script to the best anime directors and you’ll likely succeed with a good product. But material is also a factor, which with a horror movie – mystery is extremely important. I think it’s important to create interest from the first few episodes with this genre if you want to keep viewers.
My suspense and curiosity into Summer Time Render’s sheer appeal, up until episode 5 was intact, nothing to fault. Stunning visuals, good OP and ED, intelligent characters and storytelling, quite tight in construction. Each episode perfectly answering questions and asking new questions is the right balance to strike, and episode 5 of Summer Time Render was no exception.
Starting episode 5 of Summer Time Render with Nagumo, there are a lot of quirks worth considering. First, I realized that she seemed to exhibit two distinct personalities. Nagumo also seems to have at least some skill in time manipulation, although quite different from Shinpei. However, when fighting Shadow Mio, she provides Shinpei with some very valuable information: how to distinguish a shadow from a real person. This is tied to the fact that the shadow is just the shape of a pile of meat above it. It seems Nagumo knows more about these silhouettes than anyone we’ve met, though how and why remains an important unanswered question.
Then we have Ushio, who is just a fleeting moment, but makes me arguably the most important episode of Summer Time Render episode 5. The scene where Sou uses his body to block Mio’s head with an ax also makes me feel more for this guy. Sou’s sincere concern for Mio seems to be real and it’s just a pity that Mio couldn’t notice it after Shinpei reset everything.
As for Ushio Shadow, it now seems clear that she is a willed shadow of the real Ushio. It’s so real, so rogue, that she continues to insist that she’s still human. At the end of the episode, Ushio joins Shinpei in his next loop showing that Ushio will be essential to thwarting whatever scheme the shadows are conspiring. If the current Ushio believes that she is human or at least is open to the people, then she will be Shinpei’s ally – possibly his key ally – even if she is a human. person or not.
Tokiko is also another mysterious link in episode 5 Summer Time Render. The brief scene of the clinic suggests that at least some humans are shaking hands with the shadows and why is one of the shadows in a wheelchair?. We don’t know why these shadows are on the rise, but we do know they have someone in control. We also know that Shinpei’s eyes come from the person they call “Mother”, whom Nagumo calls Haine and also the reason Shinpei I can turn back time. Was the giant shadow trying to revive or using the power to do something else? I suppose the real Ushio stole Haine’s eye and gave it to Shinpei somehow, for the sake of fighting back.
It’s still too early to predict anything, only manga fans know where the story will go. With Ushio’s punch, Shinpei and Nagumo were able to carry out their “suicide” plan and reset the timeline. But this time, he learned quite a bit of useful information. Ushio’s mid-loop warning about the limits of this power almost certainly refers to the starting point that increases with each reset – Shinpei will be too late to save anyone in the end. I was also quite worried about Haine interfering with Shinpei’s ability, because if those shadows knew the existence of a traitor then they would definitely know about Shinpei’s repeat ability from the start.
