Rent-A-Girlfriend is one of the most popular rom-com anime of all time that takes its fans on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It makes us laugh and cry profusely while also melting our hearts with the cute scenes between Kazuya and Chizuru.
Due to this, the amount of excitement for the show’s upcoming season is justified. You can only imagine how crazy the hype will get when I reveal that the recent trailer teases an anticipated love confession.
The popular rom-com, Rent-A-Girlfriend, has revealed a full promotional video for the anime’s second season premiering on July 1, 2022.
Chizuru strikes a brilliant shot at baseball, leaving Kazuya in shock due to her skills. As the trailer picks up, it previews the season’s opening theme song, ‘Himitsu Koi-Gokoro’ (Secret Love Heart) by CHICO with Honeyworks.
It then moves on to Kazuya getting into various awkward and compromising situations with Chizuru, Mami, Ruka, and Sumi. Mami advises him to get a real girlfriend, while Ruka and Sumi try to do various acts of service for Kazuya to make him reciprocate their feelings.
We also get to know that Chizuru aspires to be an actress as she promised her late grandpa that she’d become one. Chizuru wants her grandmother to see her granddaughter on the big screen before she passes away due to old age. To this, Kazuya resolves that he’ll always support his girlfriend.
Now here comes the best part. While on a Ferris wheel, Chizuru confesses to Kazuya that she likes him, resulting in a loud explosion. Stuck between so many choices, situations, and chaos, Kazuya cannot figure out what to do.
Moreover, the franchise has also revealed the anime’s ending theme song, ‘Ienai feat. asmi’ (Unspeakable) by MIMiNARI.
We all know how Ruka and Sumi are in love with Kazuya and have shown it multiple times, but it looks like this season, the Kazuya’s lovers club has invited two more members, Chizuru and Mami.
Since things have escalated so much in the last season’s conclusion, I hope they don’t make it a slow-burn romance anymore.
