Fans of the Rent-a-Girlfriend anime—based on the manga by Reiji Miyajima—have been patiently awaiting a start date for the next set of episodes, and we finally have it in a new promo video. Chizuru Mizuhara appeared in the promo and a new visual along with a date, which has the second season kicking off on TV in Japan on July 1.
The second season was previously announced for a July release window back in January. Check out the video and visual while we wait for the series to continue:
The cast and staff from Rent-a-Girlfriend season 1 are back for more this time around, including director Kazuomi Koga, script supervisor Mitsutaka Hirota and character designer Kanna Hirayama.
Crunchyroll streamed the first season of the Rent-a-Girlfriend anime as it aired and sums up the story like so:
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!
