DMM Pictures released a new look at Rent-a-Girlfriend season 3. The third teaser for the ongoing anime series also introduces a new character named Mini Yaemori.
Check out the teaser below.
The Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 3 trailer introduces Mini Yaemori, Kazuya’s other neighbor. Mini is a cosplayer and a social media influencer. She plays a key role in the plot of Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 3, which involves Kazuya and Chizuru’s attempt to make an independent film together.
The Rent-a-Girlfriend anime (a.k.a. Kanojo, Okarishimasu) is based on the manga created by Reiji Miyajima. The story follows Kazuya Kinoshita, a 20-year-old college student living in Tokyo. After being dumped by his girlfriend Mami after just a month of dating, a spiteful Kazuya turns to a certain app for solace. The app allows him to “rent” a date for a limited time, and his partner is Chizuru Mizuhara. After some drama and hard feelings, Kazuya finds that his family and friends love his new “girlfriend,” and he’s forced to keep renting her services to keep up appearances. It also turns out that Chizuru happens to be his neighbor and a student at the same college.
The anime adaption of Rent-a-Girlfriend premiered in 2020 and was produced by TMS Entertainment and Studio Comet. The first two seasons were directed by Kazuomi Koga, who worked on series like Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World– and Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible. The third season will have Shin’ya Une stepping in to replace Koga. Une has worked on previous seasons, as well as shows like Record of Ragnarok and Teasing Master Takagi-san.
Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 3 will premiere in Japan in July 2023. The manga is published in English by Kodansha, and the first two seasons of the anime air on services like Crunchyroll. The series received a mobile game spin-off in 2021.
