Part 2 of TV anime Summer Time Rendering began airing in July 2022.
With the original comic by Yasuki Tanaka and serialized in “Shōnen Jump+”, this is a popular series with over 150 million cumulative views in total. The series has been rapidly gaining attention, and in March 2022, the heroine Ushio Kofune was appointed as an “Anime Tourism Ambassador” for Wakayama City.
This time, the synopsis, scene previews and staff information for the 23rd episode “Eternal Night”, first airing on September 15 (Thurs), have been released.
Additionally, a commemorative present campaign for an autographed script was started just before episode 23 first aired! (Please note: applications from outside Japan are currently unavailable).
【 Episode 23 “Eternal Night”】
Ushio’s fist pierces through Hiruko, and Haine screams as the rock wall shatters!
However, there is still some indication of Haine’s presence: the right eye of both Shinpei and Ushio has turned red. Shide, who they already defeated, appears before them once more as though he were immortal. Karikiri keenly senses the new awakening of Ushio’s “Observer’s Eye”, and aiming to steal it for himself, he invites her to battle. With the darkness cut open, Shinpei and Ushio firmly join hands and plunge forward.
Scenario: Hiroshi Seko Storyboard・Unit Director: Hanako Ueda
