Rent A Girlfriend Season 2 Possible Release Date & Confirmation in 2022!

The romantic comedy Rent-a-Girlfriend, based on Reiji Miyajima’s Weekly Shonen Magazine manga, was one of the biggest surprises of the summer 2020 anime season. The manga “Rent a Girlfriend” was a great phenomenon, especially in China (the Abema Times said that Rent a Girlfriend manga had reached number one with 700,000 digital sales in August of last year), animation has taken the series to new heights. 

The series has ascended to 4th position among Netflix Japan’s most popular shows.

About the show

After his fiancée, Mami Nanami, rejects him, Kazuya Kinoshita, a 20-year-old, decides to use a dating service that allows him to hire a partner. He decides to rent the lovely Chizuru Mizuhara after reflecting on how inauthentic the experience was.

The scenario abruptly changes when Kazuya takes Chizuru to meet his grandma in the hospital. In addition, Kazuya and Chizuru find that they share an apartment.

Expected release date

Season 2 of “Rent a Girlfriend” was shortly announced. Just before the first season was drawing to an end in 2020, streaming provider Crunchyroll revealed that a second season had been greenlit. On the other hand, there is no confirmation of the release date. According to Crunchyroll, Season 2 of “Rent-a-Girlfriend” will premiere in July 2022, though the specific date is still under the cover.

Season 2 is delayed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This delay upset some fans who hoped for a 2021 release date.

Moreover, because the pandemic influences Japanese animation firms, as reported by Nikkei Asia, a release date of 2022 appears reasonable. Season 2 of Rent-a-Girlfriend could follow the same strategy as Season 1, with staggered release dates based on country — or they could both premiere at the same time.

The cast

The cast of Season 2 of “Rent-a-Girlfriend” is yet to be revealed. As a result, the majority of the original cast is likely to return. Since the official confirmation of the second season, a unique short video was shared, starring several renowned anime voice actors. The official trailer is out.

According to Anime News Network, Sora Amamiya played Chizuru Mizuhara, Aoi Yki played Mami Nanami, Nao Toyama played Ruka Sarashina, Rie Takahashi played Sumi Sakurasawa, Kazuya Kinoshita played Shun Horie, and Yukari Nozawa played Kazuya’s grandmother. 

The company behind “Rent-a-Girlfriend,” TMS Entertainment, and animation director Kazuomi Koga look to be remaining together for Season 2.

According to Crunchyroll, Kanna Hirayama, an anime character designer who produced the artwork for the teaser video, will be making a comeback.

Expected plot

The official plot outline for Season 2 of “Rent-a-Girlfriend” has yet to be released. The first season closely matched the first six volumes of the manga. The manga has approximately 190 chapters and 19 volumes, so there is plenty of material for the next season.

The relationships between Kazuya, Chizuru, and Mami are expected to deepen in new ways in Season 2. In the second half of this season, there are more opportunities for these characters’ actual feelings to emerge than in the first.

Are you excited?

So, let’s hope for its latest release. Do you think there is a chance of a new member entering the cast and bringing in twists to the plot?
