The Kanojo – EveKano event officially announced the coming of Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 next year, based on Reiji Miyajima’s manga of the same name. Surely, after the first season ended in 2020, fans are now looking forward to seeing the series again.
The anime’s first season was first aired in July 2020. After 12 episodes, it officially ended in September of the said year.
Since then, fans have been waiting for Kazuya and Chizuru’s return in Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2.
The first season streamed all over the world through Crunchyroll, though except in Asia, Anime News Network noted.
It featured the voices of Sora Amamiya as Chizuru, Aoi Yuki as Mami Nanami, Nao Toyama as Ruka Sarashina, and Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakurasawa.
Shun Horie also joined the cast as Kazuya Kinoshita, Yukari Nozawa as Nagomi Kinoshita, Masayuki Akasaka as Yoshiaka Kibe, and Gakuto Kajiwara as Shun Kuribayashi.
Kazuomi Koga directed the first season at TMS Entertainment, while Mitsutaka Hirota wrote the scripts.
Kanna Hirayama handled the character design, and Hyadain was responsible for the musical score.
Hirayama himself won an award for best character design during the 7th Anime Trending Awards with its success.
Fumiko Ishiguro, Minoru Akiba, Shintaro Sakai, and Yumiko Nakaba were also part of the production’s staff and crew.
The female rock band, The Peggies, also joined the show to perform Season 1’s opening theme song, while the famed singer, Halca, sang the ending theme song. These two both made their own tunes for the anime.
Rent-a-Girlfriend’s manga version started serialization in 2017 in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
As of February 2021, it already has a total of 19 volumes. It also has its own spinoff series, Kanojo, Hitomishimasu, which now has two volumes.
The franchise tells the story of a 20-year-old college student, Kazuya. He already felt that his life is a failure at his age after being dumped by his girlfriend following a month of romance.
“I never want to go through that again,” he vowed, per AniTrendz.
With his desperation to go on a date, he rents a girl to have someone to go out to. When he finally meets Chizuru, he starts to feel something real.
From here, a reckless rom-com anime begins, filled with lots of love and excitement.
Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 is set to be out in 2022.
