The official website for the anime of Reiji Miyajima's Rent-A-Girlfriend (Kanojo, Okarishimasu) manga posted a character promotional video and "date visual" for Ruka Sarashina from the second season on Saturday.
The visual depicts Ruka offering the viewer a piece of a pancake dish on a date at a café.
The returning main cast includes:
- Sora Amamiya as Chizuru Mizuhara
- Aoi Yūki as Mami Nanami
- Nao Tōyama as Ruka Sarashina
- Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakurasawa
- Shun Horie as Kazuya Kinoshita
Kazuomi Koga (Rainy Cocoa, Welcome to Rainy Color) is again directing the anime at TMS Entertainment (in collaboration with Studio Comet), and Mitsutaka Hirota (Anime-Gataris, Nanbaka, The Prince of Tennis II) is back to supervise the series scripts. Kanna Hirayama designs the characters, and HYADAIN composes the music. The returning staff also includes sound director Hajime Takakuwa, art director Minoru Akiba, color key artist Fumiko Ishiguro, compositing director of photography Shintaro Sakai, and editor Yumiko Nakaba.
Crunchyroll describes the story:
Kinoshita Kazuya is a 20-year-old failure of a college student. He managed to kiss his girlfriend once, but was dumped after a month. "Ugh... Damn it. I never want to go through that again." Completely spiteful, Kazuya uses a certain method to date a girl. He goes to their meeting place and suddenly hears,"You're Kazuya-kun, right?" A beautiful girl brushing her long, black hair behind her ear was there, smiling at him. Her name was Mizuhara Chizuru. Something real is born after just a single rental! A reckless rom-com filled with love and excitement is about to begin!
The manga is inspiring a live-action television series that will also premiere in July.
