Summary of Kanojo, Okarishimasu
Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20-year-old college student who has a wonderful girlfriend: the wonderful Mami Nanami. But suddenly, no more. Without warning, Mami breaks up with him, leaving him heartbroken and lonely. Trying to ease his pain, he hires a girl for hire through an online app. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who manages to win Kazuya’s affection through her incomparable beauty and cute behavior. But after reading similar experiences from other clients of Chizuru’s, Kazuya is convinced that her caring personality and warm smile were just an act to play on his heart, and he thinks badly of her.
Worse, Chizuru criticizes him for his shameless hypocrisy, revealing his true temperament personality. This one-sided exchange is cut short, however, when Kazuya learns that his grandmother has collapsed. They rush to the hospital and find Kazuya’s grandmother already in good condition. When Chizuru is present, Grandma asks who this girl could be. Reluctantly, Kazuya introduces her as his real girlfriend, forcing Chizuru to take the part. With Kazuya still anchored to Mami, how long can this difficult client and reluctant rent girl keep up their act?
