Kanojo, Okarishimasu (I'd like to Borrow a Girlfriend)



Anime domain for the manga adaptation of "Kanojo, Okarishimasu" registered recently. Looks like an anime is coming.

Plot
Quote:
In Japan, the lonely have a new way out — online services that rent out dads, children, even girlfriends! When Kazuya's true love dumps him, he's just desperate enough to try it, and he's shocked at how cute and sweet his rental girlfriend turns out to be. But she wants to keep their "relationship" a secret, and there's a complication... she goes to his university... and their grandmothers are in the same home... and they live next door to each other?! And Kazuya finds out she's not nearly as nice in "real life"..

I've found the worst MC of the season. It's actually been a while since I've seen one this fucking pathetic. He didn't even manage to hold his girlfriend's hand in the one month they were dating, and after she dumps him he gets boners imagining her getting fucked by her new guy (I even thought he was going to fap at some point. He probably did off screen). Then he rents a girlfriend and starts imagining she fell for him because she held his hand, only to get all butthurt when he finds out she does that with all her clients.

I admire the girl. He gave her a shitty review, yet she still studied her ass off to please him and took their second date seriously. Cute, too.

This is going to be one of those series where I hope my favorite girls won't end up with the MC.

Yeah, Kazuya is pretty pathetic. I guess maybe that's realistic to some extent, but it makes him tough to watch him stumble around awkwardly and be so crude and rough .

At least he can say he dated a hot girl for one month, even if it doesn't seem like they did anything in that one month since the girl kept avoiding it. If she wasn't even into the relationship, I kind of wonder what led to them dating in the first place .

Chizuru seems like she'll be an interesting Heroine. She may not come off as the nice, perfect, girl she presents herself as on the job, but it's a job and she's a professional about it, to where she fully commits to it and will try her best to make the person in the date happy even if she knows they rated her poorly. She's also quite the beauty .

I have to question the exact legality of this "Rent-a-Girlfriend" service. Does it only become prostitution when sex is involved, even though you are basically still paying girls for services? I know compensated dating is a thing but I've never been quite sure about how legal that is. I guess it's kind of like a more active hostess job .

Kazuya's grandma, on the other hand, is a total delight. Being so bold and happy about her grandson's love life and girlfriend while bringing in all the other old ladies into it was hilarious .

Yeah, somehow I doubt most guys could hold it in if they had to be in that kind of compromising position with Chizuru .

And...of course they go to college together. Chizuru in "college" mode was pretty cute, but I'm wondering why she goes out like that when we know she can make herself look like a drop-dead gorgeous lady. I guess she doesn't want to draw attention to herself outside her job? Although Kazuya recognized her almost immediately. I wonder if it's connected to why she's even doing this kind of job in the first place ?

The Peggies really fit well on Opening's for romance anime's that feature a bunch of different girls .

I can understand wanting to fulfill his grandma's wish, but really, getting that depressed just because your first girlfriend of about a month dumped you when nothing really happened, and then acting like somebody died, how immature can you be?

They even went out of their way to point out how his ex refused to meet his grandmother, sure that girl can also have her negative qualities (I doubt she's all that bad based on next week's preview) but that doesn't excuse the way he acted when they broke up, crying while getting a boner (and maybe fapping) imagining his ex getting it on with another guy smh.

But then again I feel like I can give the MC the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he's only this way this episode so that they could set the rental girlfriend thing up, maybe he's really a decent guy next episode, this has potential so I'll stick for a few more episodes.

Given how many rental services there are in Japan (rent a family, rent a onee-san, rent a fiancee to get your parents off your back when it comes to marriage) I'm pretty sure the terms and conditions of this service has a "no sex" stipulation. I mean, there's no law against paying somebody to walk around with you for 6 hours, food included, and maybe hold your hand (leewd) once before the end of the day. The only consideration would be the age of both parties, and that's why this is set in college and they're roughly the same age, since compensated dating usually involves highschoolers who are minors and men who are waaay older than them.

Yeah it's kinda a hostess job with a few extra steps, and doesn't involve getting drunk and splurging on expensive bottles of alcohol

Kind of intriguing but at the same time this looks like a dumpster in flames rolling downhill and picking up speed. There's so few good series set in college.

Wow...so many 1* reviews from your comments here! You guys and gals have such high standards! I found this very light hearted and a good breakaway from all the negativity we're living through right now in the real world.

For starters, think back to when you were in high school or college. Were you that mature back then to handle a breakup? Wasn't your whole world based around only the things and people you knew back then, as small as it was? Today, we've grown older, seen more and learned more, our views and perspectives have changed over time. Should we apply today's standards to someone who has not yet fully grown up simply because they don't know any better yet? (That's the problem with cancel culture and applying double standards on every tweet, quote, or action that have occurred since time began - but anyways, it's a different topic altogether that I don't want to get into).

Back to this anime...

We see that he's a "grandma's boy" and she is revered in the family for her hard work so it's natural for him to want to fulfill her wishes. Dating in school/college tends to be on the shorter term but if that's all he knew, it's natural to be devastated after being dumped. He might have taken things too far or too quickly. Based on episode 1, we don't know yet. Even though it was out of desperation, I actually found him to be quite mature when he was questioning the whole concept of renting someone for a purpose, before, during, and after the whole ordeal.

The episode had humorous moments where they got into awkward (yes I admit it can be cliched) positions/scenarios but my biggest takeaway was that he is surprisingly mature and analytical about what he is doing, what she is doing, and how she is acting. After the hospital fiasco, he says they'll probably never see each other again. That shows that he came to peace with what he did - at least he tried it out and ultimately decided it wasn't for him.

So of course as true hilarity ensues, they meet up at the same college campus. Yes, your typical harem type anime awaits, but I for one am interested to watch an anime about renting people (because it's one of the first), and the MC in my opinion is not really all that bad (they could do a whole lot worse when it comes to scripting his maturity level).

He must have a very low opinion of his prospects if he can't even take any pride in at least having a hot girlfriend by college even if she dumped him...then again, first relationship, first breakup, it's always tough .

I guess Chizuru doesn't need to worry about holding her hands out for payment only to get a pair of handcuffs instead .

Japanese society, though .

Well this went way better than I was expecting during the first episode. I kind of went into this expecting the MC to be such a dumpster fire of a character that I would be facepalming all the way through but Mizuhara kind of stole the show for me.

I'm probably continuing watching this but I kind of expect to end the show with me disliking the characters in this as much as I did in DomeKano but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised? Who knows?

How did he even manage to get a girlfriend in the first place with that kind of attitude? I guess we'll find out next episode lol

I mean its not middle school... apparently they kissed and all but he's not acting like he's rebounding as much as he's acting like he got friend zoned or something... which is pretty much guaranteed to happen going forward for the sake of dragging out the rental "girlfriend" premise. I looked up the manga and it has like 170 chapters which was kind of astounding. I'm guessing the harem must be pretty solid so I'll give it a shot long enough to see how that develops.

another serie with the "peniless", even less than "beta", mcs, which make everyone hates the mc and like the heroines specially the main heroine, while keep hating more and more how low and pitfull the mc is, well i really no wonder why japan birth decline is happening, if this sort of "personality is so common" in japan i can see the nationdisappearing in 2 or 3 generations at best, jk..., well but really the serie will be carried by the girls because the mc no doubts is really trash and it's not even about "alpha vs beta" is about how shy and awkward someone can be, this guy is clear close to be a hikikomori based on how terrible he is at dealing with girls, i can really understand how his "ex-girlfriend broke with him, getting tired to have a "ultra passive" an peniless boyfriend which have even issues to hold her hands...

From the flashbacks, it looks like she resisted any overt affection with him, so I kind of doubt they've kissed.

I don't know what they will show, but I'm sure the anime will try its best to make the girl look like an bitch and that it is a good thing he is separate from her now.
