posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of Reiji Miyajima's Kanojo, Okarishimasu (Rent-A-Girlfriend) manga announced the anime's theme song artists on Sunday. The female rock band the peggies perform the opening theme song, while singer halca performs the ending theme song. Both created their songs expressly for the anime.
The anime will premiere in July on MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS on the Animeism programming block in July.
The cast includes:
- Sora Amamiya as Chizuru Mizuhara
- Aoi Yūki as Mami Nanami
- Nao Toyama as Ruka Sarashina
- Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakurasawa
- Shun Horie as Kazuya Kinoshita
Kazuomi Koga (Rainy Cocoa, Welcome to Rainy Color) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment, and Mitsutaka Hirota (Anime-Gataris, Nanbaka, The Prince of Tennis II) is supervising the series scripts. Kanna Hirayama is designing the characters, and HYADAIN is composing the music.
Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
In Japan, the lonely have a new way out — online services that rent out dads, children, even girlfriends! When Kazuya's true love dumps him, he's just desperate enough to try it, and he's shocked at how cute and sweet his rental girlfriend turns out to be. But she wants to keep their "relationship" a secret, and there's a complication... she goes to his university... and their grandmothers are in the same home... and they live next door to each other?! And Kazuya finds out she's not nearly as nice in "real life"..
Miyajima launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in July 2017.
