As we all know that when it comes to creativity and uniqueness, animes never seize an opportunity to amaze us. The stories of these animated shows are just unique. Whether we are watching a fantasy-based anime that has a lot of fighting, or simply a show based on high school, whether there are aliens involved, or a series based on a simple game like volleyball, we know that it is going to get intense and we all love that.
Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 is coming this summer
Rent-A-Girlfriend was first aired in July 2020 and has received mostly positive reviews since then. The anime has a rating of 7.3 out of 10 on IMDb and 4.4 out of 5 on Crunchyroll. Since the release of season 1, the fans were expecting a second season as the first season covered around 50 chapters of the manga, which is one-fourth (25%) of the complete manga series. So it is being hoped that season 2 will cover almost the 100th chapter, which is half of the manga.
The speculations became true when season 2 got announced from the official Twitter handle of Rent-A-Girlfriend. The show is scheduled to launch in July 2022.
