Rent a Girlfriend

On Saturday, Reiji Miyajima, the artist for Rent-A-Girlfriend manga announced on Twitter that the manga has printed more than 13 million copies!

Miyajima also posted a celebratory illustration featuring one of the manga’s main heroines, Chizuru Mizuhara.

Since July 2017, the manga has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine, with 35 tankobon volumes published in Japan thus far.

Boosted by the favorable reception of the TV anime adaptation, the manga’s total circulation reached 11 million by July 2023, coinciding with the premiere of the anime’s third season.

This indicates an additional two million copies were sold in the eight months that followed.

The anime is set to premiere on Crunchyroll, and it describes the anime as:

A hopeless college student, Kinoshita Kazuya, meets a graceful rental girlfriend, Mizuhara Chizuru, and ends up introducing her as his girlfriend to his family and friends.

Time goes on with Kazuya unable to tell the truth, as he’s surrounded by devilish ex-girlfriend Nanami Mami, who keeps coming back to tempt him for some reason, hyper-aggressive provisional girlfriend Sarashina Ruka, who doesn’t know how to take no for an answer, and super shy but diligent and hardworking younger rental girlfriend, Sakurasawa Sumi… beautiful girlfriends of all types!

The pub, the beach, hot springs, Christmas, and New Year’s… Having gone through these challenging events, Kazuya’s feelings for Chizuru keep growing stronger. But she reveals a shocking truth that threatens to shake their “relationship” to the very core!
