Originally serialized in Comic Eros #75 from the November 2019 installment, Summer’s Just Getting Started is an eighteen-page story from creator Dagashi, who has over a dozen other works on the service. I’d really gotten into a couple of Dagashi’s works focusing on some characters in their thirties and ended up checking out another work at the end of their high school life. The artwork continues to be really good, especially with the character designs, but in using some serious tan lines here you get that really odd effect to it. It makes sense and Dagashi illustrates it well but at the same time, it gets weirdly distracting along the way as the action itself picks up.

The story focuses on Yamaishi and Endou as they’re close to wrapping up their final year of school. Figuring it’s best to take a chance, Endou asks her out and she agrees, stipulating that her club activities in swim come first. He’s more than fine with that and a month goes by where they get along well even as she trains. Unfortunately, she comes up short at nationals and doesn’t even get to perform, resulting in her finishing out the club and feeling a bit empty. Which means it’s a good time for them to just go to the beach together as summer should be fun and she’s been training in chlorinated pools for years. It’s a good bit of fun in the setup and movement, especially when he realizes that she’s really very light-skinned where her school swimsuit goes and the rest is a tan when he thought it was natural. It does, however, look weird.

The montage of them enjoying the beach that they end up at, which is pretty secluded and private, is nice because she needed the fun after so much club focus and then the loss. But it’s that lightness and fun that also gets her to wanting to live a bit more and have sex with Endou, resulting in his surprise but quick agreement. There are a few comments along the way about the light/dark element but mostly it’s just two virgins on a beach without any sense and a whole lot of bodily functions. Both are moved more by instinct than anything else but it is amusing in how Endou’s legs kind of give out on him, her hips are moving on their own, and the two are rutting hard and can’t stop. There’s a kind of glassy-eyed aspect at times from Yamaishi that I don’t always care for but it fits well here as she’s feeling more alive than she has in some time and really enjoying her time with him before it reached this level.

In Summary
While not as strong as the Commute storyline that I’m reading, Dagashi does some really good stuff with backgrounds here and provides for some good backdrops and interactions with it during the more engaging moments. I like the time spent on character and setup so we connect with them a bit and how it all comes together with some very hungry and needy passion between the two. It’s a little over the top in some places and I’m not a fan of the two-tone design even if it makes sense. Overall, it’s a fun story with good artwork and a pleasant diversion.
