Rent A Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 8 Discussion (Episode28)

August 26, 2022

We start off by seeing Kazuya eating some food and thinking about Ruka blowing up on Mami.  Then his phone rings and  low and behold its Ruka. As she is talking his head off he is just eating his food, looking very uninterested  like oh yeah, haha, funny. She catches on to this and asks if anything is wrong, after he says no she winds up apologizing for blowing up on Mami the other day. She basically winds up saying that Ex or not she shouldn’t have acted that way and it was childish. Kazuya proceeds to try and tell her that it was ok, and how Mami really doesn’t have feelings for him anyways.  (I don’t believe that). He tells Ruka that seeing her go so far for him actually helped him get over Mami (wrong thing to say to a girl like Ruka) .

Then we see a shot of Mami at her house still lurking on twitter.  She wound up tweeting at Kazuya’s parents sake shop saying how she was excited to learn more about sake and excited to see tweets about their grandson. 

Back at Kazuyas he is getting ready to rent Chizuru, he notices that she actually went up in the rankings at Diamond, (The place that runs the rent a girlfriend site) she is no longer a rookie. But this is bad news for him because that also means the cost went up. By 1000 yen to be exact. That’s literally about 7 bucks in America. 

Right before he books he starts thinking that if he is going to be paying more he deserves to be a little greedy and demand more from her. 

Intro roll

 

After the intro we cut to where almost this entire episode is going to take place. The date between Kazuya and Chizuru.  We learn that his big demand for her was that she wear a schoolgirl uniform. He is a little worried that she will be weirded out by his request. As she walks up to him and they get their date started he asks if she is ok with the uniform and she says yes and how it is normal for the people that rent her to request things like this.  But then she basically says but what is weird is the fact that you wore a school uniform also.  This dude wore his own school uniform to the date also so they could match. Chizuru seems slightly ok after he tells her this because she says well at least we won’t look like school girl and sugar daddy. They are spending the day at the Tokyo Dome Center, Chizuru mentions a couple of times how packed it is and points out that all the Students skipping class go there (This will come into play a little later). 

 

I can easily sum up most of this date like this, Kazuya requested for her to wear a School girl uniform then cant focus because he is too busy swooning over her, Then As his entire thing for this episode was to Be more demanding he flops almost every time and Chizuru has to basically push him along into actually doing it. 

 

He has some notes written in his phone, A guide if you will of things he will ask her to do on this date.  Step one, holding hands. He mentions how he’s wanted this type of date at this palace ever since he was young and went there with all of his guy friends.  Hence why this episode is called youth and girlfriend. He is trying to relive his youth there and do something he never got the chance to do back then.  They start holding hands and walking and he is basically running, I assume because he is nervous. Chizuru even says hey you don’t have to walk so fast. And as they are doing this there are a few guys noticing how good Chizuru is looking and questioning what school uniform that is. They even throw a shot at Kazuya saying how that girl’s boyfriend looks like a dweeb though. Step two was to get and share food. They go to a Churro truck and get a chocolate one but he only gets one. Chizuru even says something about this as he is ordering, wondering why he is only getting one. But I think right here she realizes what he is doing. He starts to wimp out with asking her for a bite, and they show other couples on dates sharing food, Chizuru might have noticed this because she then asks him if he wants a bite. Of course he does, so they share it. 

 

After this he is looking at the notes on his phone kind of off to the side and Chizuru notices and ask what’s next, This throws Kazuya into a little tizzy because he now knows that Chizuru knows he has a plan or is doing something different on this date than he would normally do.  She tells him he does not have to hide it and that it’s actually good to have plans set in place.

As they are walking along by some shops, Chizuru spots Sumi. She ducks down behind a hat rack and pulls Kazuya down. He asks what’s going on and she points out Sumi to him and says how embarrassing it would be if Sumi would see them out and about dressed like that. In his head Kazuya also points out that knowing Sumi if she were to see them out on a uniform date she would probably freak out and cause a disaster. Sumi goes to walk off and it is kind of towards them so Chizuru drops down on all fours behind the hat rack essentially leaving her ass up in the air pointed towards Kazuya, Also remember that she has a mini skirt on….  This does nothing good for him. They wind up running off and getting away without being spotted. 

 

They go into an arcade, Which Kazuya says works out best for him because there is a photo booth in there and that is step 3 of the date. Something he would be able to take home and look at whenever he wanted. (We all know why he wants pics of Chizuru dressed as a schoolgirl to take home) They get inside the booth and right off the bat he is about to flop on his Being more demanding plan.  He can’t choose if they are in there as friends, or a couple, so Chizuru reaches over and selects couple, looking over at him and saying we are a couple right now, remember don’t hold back.  They start taking pictures and I have to say this dude looks like shit in all of them, You could visually tell he is extremely nervous. They get to one pic where they have to hug , Chizuru is like ok come on this Kills him basically she’s like hurry up everybody hugs. As they are hugging first off he is talking but the camera zooms into his crotch area implying that he was probably getting a boner. But also as they were hugging she really leaned into it like it may have been more to her than just a hug as friends. For the last pic the booth asks them to kiss, Kazuya is like a passionate kiss my ass no way no way! Chizuru saves the day by throwing up a sign with her hands that almost looked like the too sweet sign from wrestling and they touched those together into the pic for a kiss. 

 

After he is sitting in front of the machine waiting for the pictures to print and he’s like come on come on come on, but Chizuru notices some girls walking by wearing the same uniform that she is in! She site by Kazuya and is like LOOK he thinks how awkward it would be if they ran into those girls while Chizuru is wearing the same uniform as them while cosplaying. Chizuru drags him off before he can ever get the pics for the booth….  (I wonder if that will come back into play) like maybe Sumi finds them.  

After running off Chizuru says that she is sorry for making Kazuya run, and we see this dude looking completely drained.  He’s like oh it’s ok while huffing for his life. Then she points to the Ferris wheel and says you want to ride that, and points out how it’s private up there and also the carts were closed in ones. Before they get on, some lady takes their picture. On the Ferris wheel we learn that the school girl uniform she is wearing is actually the one she wore when she went to school. They are sitting across from each other and remember she is wearing a mini skirt so our boy is struggling right here. He notices that he is clamming up while wondering where he should be looking and yet again Chizuru saves the day by telling him some Ferris wheel facts. He realized that every time that he clammed up on this date she was the one to come in and keep things moving. 

 

She points out that there is a concert happening below them but Kazuya is looking trying to see and he just can’t quite get a glimpse of it. Right here it shows Kazuya from her perspective and again is filming his crotch.  I think this is to imply that she realized he has the same view from across. So she closes her legs together and puts her purse over her lap. She looks right at him and says there and he says thanks. I assume that’s what all this was about.  Then he goes and hovers over her on her side to try and see the concert.  Something happens and he winds up losing his balance and falling kind of onto her. Then we see it.  His had cupping her BOOB! She Smacks the shit out of him knocking him to the floor of the Ferris wheel house. Quickly she apologizes and says she didn’t mean to hit him.  And he is like no I’M sorry i lost my balance. In his head though right here he says what are you doing you idiot,  sure i lost my balance but falling onto her was not on purpose. I guess mad that he is apologizing for something that he didn’t mean to do but still its just manners to be like yo I’m sorry that was an accident.  Then he realizes that his hand was on her titty. He quickly averts this awkwardness  and starts a new conversation about her being a rental girlfriend. He asks her if she ever runs into any trouble with creeps , then she tells him a story about one client who wanted to show her a picture on his phone but had some porn open when he went to show her. Then she takes a shot at Kazuya saying this other time One guy that rented me Yelled at me at the aquarium. But she says that she is in love with the job regardless because she gets to meet so many people and go to so many places. 

 

After the ride they get out And the lady who took their picture says they can buy it for 1000 yen.  Chizuru says its too expensive but kazuya is like YES ill but it! I guess to make up for the fact that he didn’t get the pictures from the  photo booth. 

 

Credit roll

 

But in this credit a scene plays out while the credit roll is happening, It’s Chizuru telling Kazuya that one of the producers who went to watch the play she was in gave her a call and wants to do some more work with her.  He screams really loud REALLY?!?! She is like Keep it down! Because now everyone is looking . The point of this is the fact that it may not be right now but could have an effect on her being a rental girlfriend, SO she says it’s why she wanted to at least tell him. Then as they are walking home they are holding hands and she says you’re hurting me because he was squeezing her hand too hard. Probably because he was thinking about how she will eventually move onto acting and not be available for rent anymore. She says relax, I won’t up and disappear so suddenly. He’s like no it’s not that I’m just happy for you. 

For the next episode it looked like Kazuya is going to have dinner with Rukas parents, and also looked like his grandma was there. Then he picked up a phone call . Then it looked like two people were kissing because we could see some legs and socks and one was tippy toeing to try and kiss i assume. I think Ruka and Kazuya. It’s called Kiss and Girlfriend.

This entire anime is the meme Kill Fuck Mary. Basically kill Mami, Fuck Chizuru, and Marry Ruka… I’m CONVINCED this is how it goes.

At this point, I’m just hoping the MC spirals out of control in sadness and failure and just becomes a pain ridden recluse as an ending to the show.
