2020 summer anime has big hit but among one of the most surprising standouts was the romantic comedy show Rent a Girlfriend that is based on the weekly Shonen. Abema Times reported the success of Manga.
Though the manga itself was a major success, especially in China – the Abema Times reported that in August last year, “Rent-a-Girlfriend” had taken the top spot as the number one manga, with 700,000 digital sales — the anime has soared to new heights, as Miyajima himself even tweeted that the series had taken the fourth spot in Netflix Japan’s highest ranked programs.
What is the release date of these upcoming season?
It certainly didn’t take long for “Rent-a-Girlfriend” Season 2 to be announced. Crunchyroll, which streams the series, stated that a second season was confirmed just as the first was finishing up in 2020. However, a release date wasn’t locked in at the time. Thankfully, that window at least narrowed earlier this year, as Anime News Network reported that Season 2 of “Rent-a-Girlfriend” would have a 2022 release.
Who will be the characters?
Details on the show are still sparse, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some guesses. For one, it seems likely that Season Two will follow a similar release pattern to the first season and air in the summer.
Here are new characters whether they’re rent-a-girlfriends or clients is anyone’s guess. Finally, given the success of Season One, there’s no doubt fans will be eagerly anticipating what comes next for Rent-a-Girlfriend—although unfortunately we’ll have to wait until 2022 to find out!
The lead cast includes Sora Amamiya as Chizuru Mizuhara, Aoi Yuki as Mami Nanami. Nao Tōyama as Ruka Sarashina, Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakurasawa, Shun Horie as Kazuya Kinoshita, and Yukari Nozawa as Kazuya’s grandmother Nagomi Kinoshita.
What will be the Plot?
The final episode of Season 1 ended with quite a few interesting events. Mami actually rented Chizuru, and then confronted her about Kazuya, revealing that she knew the true nature of her and Kazuya’s relationship.
However, Chizuru denied this, saying that Kazuya was really her boyfriend. She then asked Mami if she ever thought of Kazuya as the true love of her life, which didn’t elicit much of a response.
Later, Kazuya meets with Chizuru and sort of confesses that he wants her as a girlfriend, but backtracks a bit by saying that he meant as a rental girlfriend.
Season 2 is likely to further explore these developments between Kazuya, Chizuru, and Mami. And while the first season kept teasing these characters’ true feelings, the second season is likely to give more opportunities for their actual romantic feelings to really push through.
