Rent A Girlfriend Season 3 gets its first look!
When we hear the words Harem, comedy, and romance, the first thought which enters most anime fans’ minds is a series wherein the popular guys get all the cute girls through cliché circumstances.
We wouldn’t blame anyone for thinking anything differently as most animes under this genre utilize this trope, and the anime adaption of Reiji Miyajima s’ manga series Rent-a-Girlfriend obliges with the same.
The story follows college student Kazuya Kinoshita who suffers a breakup with her girlfriend, Mami Nanami, as she meets someone else.
Alone and depressed, Kazuya decides to curb the pain by hiring a rental girlfriend from the online dating app called Diamond.
He hires the most recommended girl named Chizuru Mizuhara, who manages to gain his attention with her unparalleled beauty and cuteness.
While everything looks smooth in the beginning, Kazuya reads about Chizuru s’ similar experiences with other customers, which frustrates him, and he gives her a one-star rating.
He also complains to her that she fooled him and the whole dating experience was nothing but a charade; however, Chizuru lambasts his nativity for not knowing how a rental girlfriend works.
Their confrontation is cut short when Kazuya finds out that her grandmother has collapsed. The pair rush to the hospital and find out that she is in good condition but notices Chizuru s’ presence.
She asks Kazuya who the young girl is, to which Kazuya declares they are lovers forcing Chizuru to play her part.
Kazuya s’ grandmother is smitten with Chizuru, which forces them to keep up the act. Things get even more complicated when they find out they are neighbors and attend the same college.
Will the pair maintain the ruse amidst craziness is the central plot of the show.
Although a cliché rom-com, Rent A Girlfriend manages to be a decent watch and garner a sizeable fanbase who, after two seasons, are wondering if a third one is on the cards.

Her grandfather tells her a story about when he discovered that her grandmother was an actor. Years later, he passed away in a car accident, but Chizuru remembers his promise of fulfilling her dreams.
Kazuya arrives before a distraught Chizuru, who suggests she make a movie for her grandmother using crowdfunding, and Chizuru agrees.
Rent A Girlfriend Season 2 is covered till Volume 13: Chapter 104 of the manga, which means Rent A Girlfriend Season 3 will continue by adapting the Rental Girlfriend’s Dream Arc.
Kazuya was initially a customer of Chizuru, but now he is the producer, and it’s not sweet sailing as the noisy neighbor Mini Yaemori enters the fray.
Mini notices Chizuru and Kazuya arguing and blurts out why they aren’t in a relationship which just adds extra tension.
She also assumes Kazuya is a playboy since he rents a girlfriend, forcing her to kidnap him as he confesses the truth.
Mini is moved by Kazuya s’ story and decides to become her master and unite him with Chizuru as a real girlfriend.
While Mini s’ intentions might be true, neither Chizuru nor Ruka are thrilled by the overzealous Mini overlapping with love and work.
