“Rental no Koi (Rental Lover),” premieres Monday, June 15 at 7:35 p.m.
Remi is the most popular “item” at the “Rental Lovers” company where no customer request is deemed too impossible, outlandish or difficult to fulfill as long as certain rules and time constraints are observed. The company motto is “The ultimate rental girlfriend” and they guarantee complete satisfaction and perfectly-met requests. Remi is the ideal girlfriend in every way. But she also exhibits a few distractingly different traits. She absolutely refuses to smile once a date “gig” is over, and she wears an odd-looking bandage on her neck. So who or what is Remi? Cyborg? Alien? Cat? Fully subtitled in English.
