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 will is composed by Hyadain. The anime series will be broadcast from July 10 at 25:25 (or 1:25 AM on July 11) on the Animeism block on MBS/TBS in Japan and on July 12 on AT-X.
