Another week, another new character trailer for one of the girls from the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Reiji Miyajima’s romantic comedy manga, Rent-A-Girlfriend. This time, we get to meet Mami Nanami, a sweet playful girl who has a bit of a dark side on her. This is the second of 4 trailers that will be released weekly, the first was Chizuru Mizuhara's trailer on March 1.
Alongside the trailer was a newly released character visual showing Mami Nanami offering up some of her Pocari Sweat while being free in her bikini.
The original Rent-A-Girlfriend manga is serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine, with an English version licensed by Kodansha Comics, and they describe the series as such:
In Japan, the lonely have a new way out — online services that rent out dads, children, even girlfriends! When Kazuya's true love dumps him, he's just desperate enough to try it, and he's shocked at how cute and sweet his rental girlfriend turns out to be. But she wants to keep their "relationship" a secret, and there's a complication... she goes to his university... and their grandmothers are in the same home... and they live next door to each other?! And Kazuya finds out she's not nearly as nice in "real life"...
Rent-A-Girlfriend will be directed by Kazuomi Koga at TMS Entertainment, with character designs from Kanna Hirayama and series composition from Mitsutaka Hirota. Music will be created by Hyadain.
Rent-A-Girlfriend will air in the Animeism block on MBS/TBS from July 2020 on Friday nights.
