Mami Nanami

In the upcoming season of Rent-A-Girlfriend, we will follow up with Kazuya as he refuses to change his ways. And likely to the first season, there would be moments where we empathize and regress on his shallow outlook. He keeps suppressing his feeling for Chizuru while she stays the same tsundere she has been throughout the first season. Both have certain feelings towards one another which they refuse to confess. Kazuya fears losing her while Chizuru can’t let go of her ego. This is sure to complicate their relationship as even Mami may interfere as she has a great deal of contempt towards the two. While we are almost certain to see more of Sumi who fans seem to adore and want her to have more screen time.
