Chizuru Mizuhara from Rent-a-Girlfriend Comes to Life With Japan's Top Cosplayer Enako

The shoot appeared as part of this weeks issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine



With the upcoming Rent-a-Girlfriend TV anime premiere only a day away, Weekly Shonen Magazine, where Reiji Miyajima's manga is serialized, celebrated the upcoming broadcast in this weeks issue by enlisting Japan's top cosplayer to recreate a "real date" as Chizuru Mizuhara, the lead girl in Rent-a-Girlfriend, for a photoshoot.

Enako, who has previously cosplayed Rem from Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, and all the quintuplets from The Quintessential Quintuplets, is the biggest cosplayer in Japan, where she regularly nets around 10 million yen (US$91,250) from one Comiket event.

For Chizuru, Enako acted just as the rental girlfriend would during one of her sessions. More photos were released of the cosplay on Enako's twitter account where she said that she hoped "you'll be able to imagine what it would be like if you had a date with Chizuru for a day..."

As much as we'd love to rent Enako as Chizuru for a date, at most we'll have to settle watching the TV anime for Rent-a-Girlfriend, which launches on Crunchyroll on July 10.
