The upcoming Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 has released its second date-themed visual and character trailer, this time featuring main heroine Chizuru Mizuhara in a school uniform. A July 1 Japanese premiere date for the anime was also revealed.
The previous date visual and character trailer were centered on Sumi Sakurasawa.
The first season of Rent-a-Girlfriend premiered in July 2020. The anime is based on the manga by Reiji Miyajima, which began in 2017 and has 25 tankoubon volumes as of February 2022.
Crunchyroll describes the anime as:
Kinoshita Kazuya is a 20-year-old failure of a college student. He managed to kiss his girlfriend once, but was dumped after a month. “Ugh… Damn it. I never want to go through that again.” Completely spiteful, Kazuya uses a certain method to date a girl. He goes to their meeting place and suddenly hears, “You’re Kazuya-kun, right?” A beautiful girl brushing her long, black hair behind her ear was there, smiling at him. Her name was Mizuhara Chizuru. Something real is born after just a single rental! A reckless rom-com filled with love and excitement is about to begin!
