If you’ve ever wanted to go on a date with the most popular character from Rent-a-Girlfriend, an opportunity has arrived. Chizuru Mizuhara topped a character popularity poll that was held to mark the milestone of Reiji Miyajima’s manga hitting 200 chapters, and the life-size figure that was produced as a result is officially done with production.
Thanks to a campaign in this year’s 30th and 31st issues of Weekly Shonen Magazine, one lucky winner will get a chance to take date photos with the figure, complete with the full cooperation of the Asakusa Hanayashiki amusement park that was featured in the manga. The park will be reserved just for the winner during the photo session, so whoever nets the prize will be able to enjoy some time with Chizuru and photographic evidence of said date.
Here’s a closer look at the figure:
And here’s what Kodansha’s press release had to say about it:
“This life-size figure is 162.5 cm tall. With beautiful long hair, white skin, long legs, and outstanding style, ‘a super beautiful girl that everyone will look back on’ has been fully recreated! And unlike regular figures, this ‘Life-Size Chizuru Mizuhara’ wears real clothes! The clothes are custom-made to match Mizuhara’s out-of-this-world shape.”
The second season of the Rent-a-Girlfriend anime adaptation is about to kick off in July, and it will stream on Crunchyroll as it airs in Japan. Here’s the official synopsis:
