In Season 1 of Rent-a-Girlfriend, protagonist Kazuya Kinoshita uses a dating app to rent a girlfriend named Chizuru Mizuhara after his ex-girlfriend, Mami Nanami, breaks up with him. Unsurprisingly, Kazuya’s dating life soon gets complicated when he accidentally introduces Chizuru as his actual girlfriend to his grandmother, which results in the two putting up a fake couple facade in front of Kazuya’s friends and family.

Season 2 will likely see the connection between Kazuya and Chizuru continue to blossom as his genuine feelings for her grow stronger. However, Chizuru reveals a shocking truth that will affect their relationship. There will also be more appearances and storylines for minor but colorful characters like Ruka Sarashina and Sumi Sakurasawa. Ruka is a rental girlfriend from another company, but wants to date Kazuya seriously. Sumi is a newcomer rental girlfriend trying to make her way in the industry.

However, there are hints that Kazuya’s situation will grow even more complicated when possible love confessions are made, specifically by Chizuru. The trailer also provides more depth into Chizuru’s character as she reveals why she wants to become an actress.

Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 will premiere on July 2 in Japan and will be officially released in the West on Crunchyroll with English subtitles and dubbed.
