Rent-A-Girlfriend Sneak Peek
Kazuya Kinoshita, an emotionally troubled college student, uses a smartphone app to hire a girlfriend to fill the void in his heart. Chizuru Mizuhara appears to be the ideal girl, possessing all of his desires, including excellent looks and a gentle, caring demeanor. After seeing contradicting ratings on her profile after their first encounter, and still plagued by his previous relationship, Kazuya comes to the conclusion that Chizuru is solely interested in playing with men’s hearts and gives her a low rating.
Chizuru, enraged by her client’s lack of regard for her, exposes her actual nature: feisty and volatile, the polar opposite of Kazuya’s first impression. Kazuya receives word of his grandmother’s fall at that very moment and is compelled to take Chizuru to the hospital with him. Despite the fact that it turns out to be nothing serious, Kazuya’s grandma is overjoyed that he has finally found a serious partner, as she had always wished. Kazuya and Chizuru are pushed into a sham relationship, behaving as though they are true lovers, because they are unable to tell her the truth.
