Special exhibition shows off new merch and features
Last month, we reported on a Rent-a-Girlfriend exhibition that would feature an "undisclosed project" voiced by the anime's four main girls. With the exhibit's opening this weekend, it's revealed its plans: a virtual date with your best girl!
Visitors to the exhibit will be able to purchase a color program including an interview with Rent-a-Girlfriend creator Reiji Miyajima. Included in the program will be a four-track CD — one each for Chizuru, Ruka, Sumi, and Mami — to play along with your walk through the exhibit, creating a virtual date with the character.
New merchandise available only at the event has also been revealed. Shoppers can pick up one of four autographed reproduction manga pages:
More T-shirts based on the girls' fashion in the manga:
And a phone case based on the one Kazuya received for Christmas:
Shoppers who spend 5,000 yen or more can pack it all up in a specially designed bag featuring art of all four girls:
Exhibit attendees will also receive one of four randomly-chosen mini sketch papers with the price of admission:
Rent-a-Girlfriend throws recently-single college student Kazuya into a web of lies when a one-time rental date with Chizuru turns into long-term confusion. The two navigate family opinions, romantic entanglements, and Kazuya's possessive ex as they attempt to make the truth known, and figure out their own feelings. A second season has been announced.
The Rent-a-Girlfriend exhibit runs until October 26 in Tokyo, and will run again in Osaka from December 24 to January 4.
