Rent-A-Girlfriend is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Reiji Miyajima. The series began serialization in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in July 2017 and has been compiled into 14 volumes as of March 2020.
The story revolves around Kazuya Kinoshita, a college student who has recently gone through a breakup. Using an online app, he rents a girlfriend named Chizuru Mizuhara but ends up writing her a bad review. Chizuru gets angry with him because of this.
However, Kazuya’s grandmother is unexpectedly put in the hospital, and Kazuya is forced to take Chizuru with him. His grandmother gets smitten with Chizuru. This forces Kazuya to keep renting Chizuru so that he can keep up appearances with friends and family.
The story gets a lot more twisted when they find out that they are next-door neighbors and go to the same college!
