Okay, so great Idea to extend the roof but instead being who I am, I tried to put up gutter as I thought most of the water was just running down the fascia and down.

We had our first rain storm and the gutter significantly helped but there is still water on the siding. Because of how wonky this thing is I need to go back up there and flash/drip edge fix/caulk some areas but I'm hopeful that when I get that done I'll be in good shape.

The pic looks like there's a "shadow" but that's actually water.

P.S. I hate the plastic gutter that you have to glue... Does anyone have any recommendations on how to glue it successfully? I'm considering just returning the rest and moving on.

I'm also not sure it's not going in the house but if that happens I'll just use a torch to dry that section of the buffallo board dry in the garage after burning through the drywall . Click image for larger version

You just have more water than the gutter can handle and the gutter is not big enough.

... a rain diverter, that's as intuitive as a snubber diode. Thanks, I never thought about how much water would be coming down to that one joint from the whole house. Do you really think the gutter is too small? The rain chain didn't seem to be too full... I can divert first then change the gutter if I need to later. So I fixed the first big problem, now I have to fix the 2nd problem... will there be a 3rd problem? Who knows.

Their diverter may not work, you might be designing your own.
A couple other thought
1 install a corner gutter, al little lower so it fits on and some flashing so water makes it into the gutter.

2 add step flashing down the rake and add a raised fasia board. From the roof it would look like the flashing around a chimney.
