Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 Release Date, Everything we know

It’s time for love, madness and laughter cramps again! Rent-a-Girlfriend has finally announced the start date of Season 2.

Rent-a-Girlfriend has become all hearts for itself in the winter of 2020. The story of Kazuya and his crazy relationship with a rented girlfriend could not let go of the fans. No wonder that soon after the release of the first season, the announcement of a second season made the rounds. Only one start date was missing so far. Fortunately, a new trailer came around the corner, which brings the release date with it.

The trailer appeared today on the DmM Pictures YouTube channel and unfortunately comes without English subtitles. However, a translation is hardly necessary anyway, as the body language of the characters, as usual with Rent-a-Girlfriend, speaks for itself. The main character Kazuya, as well as the girls Chizuru, Mami, Ruka and Sumi appear in the 33 seconds and initiate the next plot section.

At the end of the video, the happy message reaches us: Rent-a-Girlfriend is to be continued in July 2022. On the official Twitter account, this information is confirmed once again. A suitable visual has also appeared there.

The second season is once again being created under the wings of the studio TMS Entertainment in cooperation with Studio Comet. As usual, Kazuomi Koga is responsible for the direction, while the music continues to be by the composer Hyadain. Also the roles of the voice actors should not change so far. Whether the sequel, like the previous season 12 episodes, will receive, is still in the room.

Rent-a-Girlfriend: Action

Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20-year-old college student who has a wonderful girlfriend: the bright and sunny Mami Nanami. But suddenly, he doesn’t. Without warning, Mami breaks up with him, leaving him utterly heartbroken and lonely. Seeking to soothe the pain, he hires a rental girlfriend through an online app. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who through her unparalleled beauty and cute demeanor, manages to gain Kazuya’s affection.

But after reading similar experiences other customers had had with Chizuru, Kazuya believes her warm smile and caring personality were all just an act to toy with his heart, and he rates her poorly. Aggravated, Chizuru lambastes him for his shameless hypocrisy, revealing her true pert and hot-tempered self. This one-sided exchange is cut short, however, when Kazuya finds out that his grandmother has collapsed.

They dash toward the hospital and find Kazuya’s grandmother already in good condition. Baffled by Chizuru’s presence, she asks who this girl might be. On impulse, Kazuya promptly declares that they are lovers, forcing Chizuru to play the part. But with Kazuya still hung up on his previous relationship with Mami, how long can this difficult client and reluctant rental girlfriend keep up their act?
