Rent-A-Girlfriend TV anime will be broadcast from July 2020 in the Animeism block
It’s that time of the week to get introduced to yet another girl from the upcoming Rent-A-Girlfriend TV anime series, adapted from Reiji Miyajima’s romantic comedy manga. This week, we’re introduced to the cheerful and sporty Ruka Sarashina who, in the below trailer, confesses her feelings to the lead guy, Kazuya Kinoshita.
The Rent-A-Girlfriend manga 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 will be from Hyadain. The final character trailer and visual will be released next week.
Rent-A-Girlfriend will air in the Animeism block on MBS/TBS from July 2020 on Friday nights.
