Catch up on the manga before Season 2 of the hit anime! You can rent a girlfriend, but can you buy love? Reeling from a bad breakup, Kazuya rents the beautiful, polite Chizuru for a date. But rock bottom might be so much lower than he thought! Chizuru is much more than the pretty face and sweet demeanor he thought he'd bargained for...THE FIRST REAL DATE?Mizuhara plans to quit her Rent-A-Girlfriend job to pursue an acting career, and Kazuya, finally aware of his feelings for her, is left unsure what to do. Without their pretend relationship, the pair are nothing more than neighbors...right? After taking some time to reflect (and stalking Mizuhara by secretly watching one of her theater performances), Kazuya is ready to let his feelings go. However, a sudden invitation from Mizuhara to spend an off-the-clock evening together throws him for a total loop. Could this be the long-awaited chance to push past the client/rental barrier and become something more?
