‘Rent-A-Grifrleind‘ recently aired its 16th episode “Night and Girlfriend” on July 2nd, 2022, and what a steaming episode it was, Mami-chan taking an interest in Kazuya’s life just to mess with him and sabotage his relationship with Chizuru is such a cheap move, I don’t even want to imagine what she will do next.
I’m still amazed at how pitful of a character Kazuya really is, why does he even care what she thinks or how she feels after everyone she has done to make him feel bad.
However, that’s not the highlight of the episode, Ruka meets Kazuya and decides that she will cook for him, and both of them have a nice time together at the supermarket, shopping for vegetables and meat. Ruka cooks a nice meal for him and both of them have a lovely time together until Ruka starts making advances toward her.
Kazuya tries to make her leave his apartment; however, due to the heavy rain outside, he has to let a dripping wet Ruka back into his apartment and if the thought of having Ruka shower at his apartment isn’t enough, she comes out wearing his shirt and looking cuter than ever before and acting like a real girlfriend.
But before anything serious happens, Kazuya confesses his real feelings toward Ruka which sends her into a love coma and the episode ends just how everyone expected it to.
‘Rent-A-Girlfriend’ Episode 17 Release Date
Rent-A-Girlfriend episode 17 will be titled “Birthday and Girlfriend” which will be released on July 30, 2022, and you can already guess by the title that the following episode will celebrate one of the girl’s birthday and Kazuya will be in the middle of it.
And despite how seeming quietly both Ruka and Kazuya were in his apartment, Chizuru definitely heard lots of what was going on, I just hope it doesn’t affect their relationship but seriously doubt that will happen.
This show is full of romantic and comedic cliches and I love it.
