Rent-A-Girlfriend TV anime will air in the Animeism block from July 2020
After four weeks, the final character trailer and visual for the upcoming Rent-A-Girlfriend TV anime series, adapted from Reiji Miyajima’s romantic comedy manga of the same name, was released on March 22. This week we're introduced to the endearing, but timid, Sumi Sakurazawa, who blows Kazuya Kinoshita away with her adorableness.
As with all three of the girls we've met so far, Sakurazawa has her own visual, which is of her falling on her backside in a bowling alley. She'll be voiced by the arch-wizard of explosions herself, Rie Takahashi.
The Rent-A-Girlfriend manga series is currently being serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine, with an English version licensed by Kodansha Comics. 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 by Mitsutaka Hirota. The music is created by Hyadain.
Rent-A-Girlfriend will broadcast in the Animeism block on MBS/TBS from July 2020 on Friday nights.
