Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20-year-old college student who has a wonderful girlfriend: the bright and sunny Mami Nanami. But suddenly, he doesn't. Without warning, Mami breaks up with him, leaving him utterly heartbroken and lonely. Seeking to soothe the pain, he hires a rental girlfriend through an online app. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who through her unparalleled beauty and cute demeanor, manages to gain Kazuya's affection.

But after reading similar experiences other customers had had with Chizuru, Kazuya believes her warm smile and caring personality were all just an act to toy with his heart, and he rates her poorly. Aggravated, Chizuru lambastes him for his shameless hypocrisy, revealing her true pert and hot-tempered self. This one-sided exchange is cut short, however, when Kazuya finds out that his grandmother has collapsed.

They dash toward the hospital and find Kazuya's grandmother already in good condition. Baffled by Chizuru's presence, she asks who this girl might be. On impulse, Kazuya promptly declares that they are lovers, forcing Chizuru to play the part. But with Kazuya still hung up on his previous relationship with Mami, how long can this difficult client and reluctant rental girlfriend keep up their act?

HEAR ME OUT I know i should not like this, The MC is one of the worst to date, the writing is pretty shit and most of the other characters are just down right stupid. But I was soo hooked. This show didn't let me go, i found myself watching multiple episodes at a time until i realized i was at the last

Art - 10/10 The Animation is actually phenomenal, Expressions of characters are exaggerated but it actually improves on the comedic values of the show.

Characters 5/10 Some real hit or miss characters, Many of the characters dont act as humans normally would. Especially the ...

Rent-a-Girlfriend is a controversial and divisive anime. Some viewers find the plot and characters annoying and off-putting, while others find the story compelling and entertaining. The main character, Kazuya Kinoshita, is a flawed individual who struggles with self-esteem issues and has a tendency to act selfishly. The supporting characters are also fairly developed and provide an interesting dynamic to the story. The music and animation are pretty standard, and the plot has some predictable elements. Overall, Rent-a-Girlfriend is an interesting watch but not for everyone.

Kanojo Okarishimasu is a complete waste of time, especially considering the current state of the manga. The protagonist starts off as unlikable, and unfortunately, there's little to no character development to redeem him (idc that the mc is bad, but make him evolve like fr). While I initially found the girls to be kinda interesting, they too suffer from lack of growth and ultimately become tedious and uninteresting.

The plot, if you can call it that, descends into utter shambles, with no semblance of progression or improvement. It's frustrating to see mangakas start with a promising idea only to become infatuated with their characters, refusing to ...
