Rent-A-Girlfriend is one of several famous anime TV series airing new episodes this summer. The show is hyping up Season 2 of the anime with a spectacular new poster bringing together all of the prominent characters fans will see in action!
The official anime adaptation of Reiji Miyajima’s classic manga series was one of the few series that peaked during the Summer 2020 anime schedule, which was quite impressive given that it was amid the peak of the continuing COVID pandemic and its attendant problems. Two years later, the show is returning for new episodes.
Rent-A-Girlfriend new poster
Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 will begin next month, along with the rest of the Summer 2022 anime calendar.
The series will show Kazuya navigating many more phony and maybe genuine relationships. He got himself complicatedly tangled up in these relationships during the first season.
This means that the four lead heroines are returning and are the stars of the latest Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 poster.
You can see the new poster below from the series’ official Twitter account:
Crunchyroll has confirmed that season 2 of Rent-A-Girlfriend will be streaming alongside its initial release in Japan on July 1, 2022.
Sora Amamiya as Chizuru Mizuhara, Aoi Yuki as Mami Nanami, Nao Toyama as Ruka Sarashina, Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakurasawa, and Shun Horie as Kazuya Kinoshita are all expected to return for the upcoming episodes.
The new opening theme for the show is “Himitsu Koi-Gokoro,” sung by CHICO with HoneyWorks, while the new ending theme is “Ienai feat. Asmi,” performed by MIMiNARI.
Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 expectations and more
Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 has yet to get an official plot outline. However, the first season didn’t stray far from its manga roots, closely following the first six volumes. And, given that the manga currently contains nearly 190 chapters and 19 volumes, with no announcement on a finish, there is a lot from which the new season could draw.
The final episode of Season 1 concluded with several intriguing incidents. Mami rented Chizuru and questioned her about Kazuya, admitting that she was aware of the true nature of her and Kazuya’s relationship.
On the other hand, Chizuru rejected this, claiming that Kazuya was her boyfriend. She then asked Mami if she ever considered Kazuya her genuine love, eliciting little response. Later, Kazuya meets with Chizuru and admits that he wants her as a girlfriend but backtracks a little by explaining that he meant as a rental girlfriend.
Season 2 will most likely delve deeper into these developments between Kazuya, Chizuru, and Mami. And while the first season teased these characters’ true feelings, the second season is expected to provide them with more opportunities to express their authentic romantic impulses.
Kazuomi Koga will once again direct the animation project. In the past, he was the assistant director for Rainy Cocoa and he also worked as an episode director for Akame ga Kill!, Goblin Slayer, The Devil is a Part-Timer!, and Steins Gate 0. (The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 2 is scheduled to premiere in 2022.)
