“Shinpei (Natsuki Hanae) with a shocked, partly horridied look on his face,” Summer Time Rendering, “So Long, Summer Days,” directed by Yasuki Tanaka, 2022

Ten years ago, Shinpei lost his parents, but luckily Ushio’s family took him in, and now they are his family as well. But, with him leaving for Tokyo, assumingly for school, two years ago, he hasn’t seen anyone of the Kofune family since he left.

Ushio's (Anna Nagase) ghost talking to Shinpei
“Ushio’s (Anna Nagase) ghost talking to Shinpei,” Summer Time Rendering, “So Long, Summer Days,” directed by Yasuki Tanaka, 2022

Ushio is Shinpei’s childhood friend who recently died. But, whether she died from drowning or murder has become part of the island’s rumor mill due to the markings on her neck, which push the idea she was strangled.

Quotes

Mio Kofune (Saho Shirasu)

“Mio (Saho Shirasu) sad, and talking to Shinpei after taking a bath,” Summer Time Rendering, “So Long, Summer Days,” directed by Yasuki Tanaka, 2022

Mio is Ushio’s little sister who is trying to be the light her sister was to everyone, but it gets hard to smile sometimes when you’re in mourning.

Sou (Kensho Ono) crying and blaming himself for Ushio's death
“Sou (Kensho Ono) crying and blaming himself for Ushio’s death,” Summer Time Rendering, “So Long, Summer Days,” directed by Yasuki Tanaka, 2022

The sun of the island doctor, Sou, like Ushio, is one of Shinpei’s childhood friends and is the first one to push the idea Ushio’s death may not have been an accident.

“Shiori (Rie Kugimiya) at Ushio’s funeral, still silent as she has been since Ushio died,” Summer Time Rendering, “So Long, Summer Days,” directed by Yasuki Tanaka, 2022

Allegedly, Ushio died saving Shiori from drowning, and that is why, when we meet Shiori, she is dead in the eyes and silent, but there might be more to the story.

Despite over 700 people living on Hitogashima, and it being a popular tourist destination, Tetsu is the only police officer on the island and just so happens to be a relative of the Kofune family.
