It's a great watch, really standing out amongst the awful Isekai and Ecchi trash that dilutes the current pool of modern anime. The basic premise is that it's a groundhog day anime with mature themes, an interesting mystery, and engaging villains and protagonists. You have your tropes but what can you do - it's still very good. Definitely add it to your list.
Summer Time Rendering is definitely one of the hits of this season's anime. It won't win any awards but the story is intriguing and will keep your attention through. The premise itself is enticing. Comparing it to the manga, this adaptation is a one to one. The story does have a few holes, but it makes enough sense and will keep you watching. The characters, while intriguing and have interesting character designs, aren't exceptional. The main selling point is the production and it is very polished. You would be hard pressed to find any other seasonal anime with far better production. Overall, highly recommend if you're into the mystery genre. 7.8/10 (Good) 5 is average on this rating scale.

The animators gave a lot of attention to the little details, that really heighten the anime for the viewer.

However, the comedy and expressiveness of this anime is one that I have not seen in a long time. wrote this because some American peanut head said my reviews suck
