An anime adaptation is in the works from the manga world with Rent-A-Girlfriend, which was recently given a formal July 10th, 2020 premiere date for Japan. Crunchyroll recently updated to confirm that they’ll be streaming the series with it set for worldwide availability outside of Asia when it debuts. Now, the official site spent part of last week rolling out some Twitter-based promo spots where the lead, Chizuru, is done up through a dating sim style game so you can get to know her better and go through some light date aspects with her.
The series will be directed by Kazuomi Koga based on the scripts from Mitsutaka Hirota. Kanna Hirayama is handling the character designs with TMS Entertainment working on the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes Sora Amamiya as Chizuru Mizuhara, Aoi Yūki as Mami Nanami, Nao Tōyama as Ruka Sarashina, Rie Takahashi as Sumi Sakrasawa, Shun Horie as Kazuya Kinoshita, Yukari Nozawa as Nagomi Kinoshita, Masayuki Akasaka as Yoshiaki Kibe, and Gakuto Kajiwara as Shun Kuribayashi.
The manga from Reiji Miyajima began in 2017 and has twelve volumes to its name as of its anime announcement. The property is serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine with Kodansha Comics bringing it out in English in 2020.
The Peggies will be performing the opening song while halca will handle the ending theme song.
