Sumi is the protagonist of the spinoff series, and her everyday struggles will be portrayed. Being a shy person, she is often unable to communicate properly, which leads her to troublesome situations.
Sumi works at the same rental agency as Chizuru (female lead of Rent A Girlfriend). She is a newcomer to this particular line of work and lacks confidence. She also develops feelings for Kazuya (male lead of Rent A Girlfriend) after she had to practice dating him to improve her skills.
Rent A Girlfriend is being adapted into an anime, which will debut on July 10. It will premiere on the Animeism programming block on MBS and other specified networks. It is being animated by TMS Entertainment and directed by Kazuomi Koga. The official website has released a PV and a new visual.
A special live show was organized on June 13 to commemorate the anime adaptation. The cast of the four heroines appeared to live along with the artists performing the theme songs.
In this time of an ongoing pandemic, a new manga is most welcome. Along with the anime release, this spinoff work has risen due to great efforts from the creators of Rent A Girlfriend.
About Rent A Girlfriend
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!
