The Rent-a-Girlfriend anime—which adapts the romantic comedy manga by Reiji Miyajima—previously announced plans to return with season 3 this July, and now we have an exact date. The new season will officially hit the airwaves in Japan on July 7, with helca providing opening theme song “Renai mm Film” (“Romance mm Film”).

Check out a new visual featuring the always shy Sumi and some lovely flowers below.

The previous visual was all about Ruka. 

Rent-a-Girlfriend season 3 has Shinya Une as series director, with Mitsutaka Hirota returning to write series composition and Kanna Hirayama returning as character designer at TMS Entertainment. Crunchyroll recently announced plans to stream the third season as it airs. 

Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the Rent-a-Girlfriend anime:

A hopeless college student, Kinoshita Kazuya, meets a graceful rental girlfriend, Mizuhara Chizuru, and ends up introducing her as his girlfriend to his family and friends. Time goes on with Kazuya unable to tell the truth, as he’s surrounded by devilish ex-girlfriend Nanami Mami, who keeps coming back to tempt him for some reason, hyper-aggressive provisional girlfriend Sarashina Ruka, who doesn’t know how to take no for an answer, and super shy but diligent and hardworking younger rental girlfriend, Sakurasawa Sumi… beautiful girlfriends of all types! The pub, the beach, hot springs, Christmas, and New Year’s… Having gone through these challenging events, Kazuya’s feelings for Chizuru keep growing stronger. But she reveals a shocking truth that threatens to shake their “relationship” to the very core!
