The folks behind the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Reiji Miyajima‘s Rent-A-Girlfriend manga are ramping up promotion for the series with a handful of character trailers. The first of four made its way online this weekend, putting the spotlight on Chizuru Mizuhara ahead of the show’s July premiere.

Kazuomi Koga is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment, with series composition by Mitsutaka Hirota, character designs by Kanna Hiryama, and music by Hyadain. Check out the new footage below.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English and sums it up like so:

In Japan, the lonely have a new way out — online services that rent out dads, children, even girlfriends! When Kazuya’s true love dumps him, he’s just desperate enough to try it, and he’s shocked at how cute and sweet his rental girlfriend turns out to be. But she wants to keep their “relationship” a secret, and there’s a complication… she goes to his university… and their grandmothers are in the same home… and they live next door to each other?! And Kazuya finds out she’s not nearly as nice in “real life”…
