What is Rent-a-Girlfriend season 3 about?
Rent-a-Girlfriend season 3 will pick up where season 2 left off, and will cover chapter 104, Rental Girlfriend’s Dream Arc.
We know that this arc includes Kazuya and Chizuru finally fulfilling Chizuru’s dying grandmother’s wish. (Though we expect the journey to have some hardships, and probably won’t be as easy as assumed!)
If you need a reminder of where we are so far, there’s a few things you need to know.
Season one began with Kazuya meeting Chizuru for the first time. Or rather, hiring her. After being dumped by his girlfriend Mami, he rents Chizuru out for a date, only to find her completely intolerable. The two instantly butt heads, but Kazuya is forced to hire her once again when he learns that his grandmother has fallen ill, and he wants to be able to prove to her that he has a good life.
The second season then sees the two characters growing closer, especially when Kazuya promises to rent Chizuru every week in order to help her fund her movie project and become a lead actress. Their romantic relationship should continue to grow and form the arc of the rest of the show.
