About Rent a Girlfriend/ Kanojo Okarishimasu
Rent-A-Girlfriend is a popular mainstream Japanese Romantic-Comedy manga written and illustrated by Reiji Miyajima for Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Magazine. The series debuted in the magazine in July 2017 and so far has been collected into 26 volumes.
Studio TMS entertainment adapted the series into an anime adaptation which aired in July 2020 for 12 episodes and was followed by the second season in July 2022.
The series also has inspired a Live-action drama which premiered in July 2022. A spin-off manga titled “Rent-A-(Really Shy!) -Girlfriend” centred around Rumi is currently running in Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app.
The story follows Kazuya Kinoshita who has broken up with his girlfriend Mami Nanami after dating for about a month. He uses an online app to rent a girlfriend named Chizuru Mizuhara, a beautiful girl.
However, because she appears to be too perfect, he writes her a low rating, but then Chizuru berates him for that and reveals she is meaner than he expected. However, when Kazuya’s grandmother collapses in the hospital, he brings her along and the grandmother is smitten with how great she is.
Kazuya continues renting Chizuru in order to keep up appearances with his family and friends, but things get complicated when they discover they are next-door apartment neighbours and attend the same college. Later, other girls from the girlfriend business also join in dating and showing interest in Kazuya.
