With the anime adaptation having just finished its first season and a second season already announced, it's safe to say that the fanbase for the romantic comedy manga Rent-A-Girlfriend written and illustrated by Reiji Miyajima has considerably grown in recent months.

Rent-A-Girlfriend Exhibition

Those who live in Japan have an opportunity to visit the first-ever Rent-A-Girlfriend exhibition now being held in Tokyo until October 26th and in Osaka from December 24th to January 4th.

If you're not in the Tokyo area or can't visit Japan, we'd like to suggest the next best thing. Thanks to a press release by Animate Holdings, we now have an official report on the exhibition in progress.

Let's take a look!

Inside the Rent-A-Girlfriend Exhibition

To begin with, you'll be welcomed at the entrance with an autographed message by Reiji Miyajima. The exhibition allows you to enjoy audio, video, and manuscripts. You can look back on memories of dates with each heroine through exclusive illustrations, video, and audio. It's designed to give you the simulated experience of touring the exhibition with them. You'll be able to not only trace their character growth and examine famous scenes, but also check out the latest developments of the original story.

You can take a selfie pretending you're on a date with your favorite girl.
