Sinopsis de Kanojo, Okarishimasu
Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20-year-old college student who has a wonderful girlfriend: the brilliant Mami Nanami. But suddenly, not anymore. Without warning, Mami breaks up with him, leaving him heartbroken and lonely. Seeking to ease his pain, he hires a rental girlfriend through an online application. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who through her incomparable beauty and cute demeanor, manages to win Kazuya’s affection.
But after reading similar experiences from other clients Chizuru had had, Kazuya is sure that her caring personality and warm smile were just an act of playing with his heart, and he rates her poorly. Aggravated, Chizuru criticizes him for his shameless hypocrisy, revealing his true temperal personality. However, this one-sided exchange is interrupted when Kazuya discovers that his grandmother has collapsed.
They run to the hospital and find Kazuya’s grandmother already in good condition. Puzzled by Chizuru’s presence, Grandma asks who this girl could be. On impulse, Kazuya introduces her as his real girlfriend, forcing Chizuru to play the role. But with Kazuya still anchored to Mami, how long can this difficult client and the reluctant hire girlfriend get on with their performance?
