The summer 2020 anime adaptation of the manga Rent-A-Girlfriend saw streaming with Crunchyroll handling the series worldwide for audiences outside of Asia. We learned previously that the series is getting a third season and it was set with a July 7th, 2023 debut on the Super Animeism block. Crunchyroll is simulcasting it where the episode numbers are continuing on from the first season.
We also knew that with the first two seasons getting a dub, the third season would as well. While the English dub started previously, Friday saw five more dubs go live on the service with the first episode (also listed as episode twenty-five) with it now French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, and Spanish language options now available.
The English dub has Jerry Jewell directing it from the scripts by Leah Clark. The English cast includes Aleks Le as Kazuya, Lizzie Freeman as Chizuru, Lisette Monique Diaz as Mini, Nicolas Roye as Kibe, Landon McDonald as Kuri, Sean Letourneau as Teppei, and Sarah Williams as Ruka.
