Last October 31 Reiji Miyajimarecognized author of the multimedia franchise Kanojo, Okarishimasu (Hire a girl), shared an illustration of the protagonist Chizuru Mizuhara with legend”Masquerade“, referring to the feast of St Halloween in Japan, although trick or treating is not a custom there.
If the publication had remained only on that, we would not have written about it. Even though Chizuru doesn’t wear a Halloween costume, one illustration of this girl is usually enough to garner thousands of reactions and send fans of the franchise into a frenzy. But then he decided to write the following in response:
- This girl who walked in and said “excuse me” This is Chizuru Mizuhara and she is my girlfriend. We both don’t like crowds, so we’ll spend the day at home. Her outfit seems to be designed for Halloween and is very beautiful today. He even bought me a present.
It is no longer news that the author’s “delusions” are about treatment Chizuru Mizuhara like his girlfriend increase with each new post and even fans began to believe that the manga was stopped because the author “doesn’t want to hand it over to Kazuya”, but this new update definitely took many by surprise. After all, the author never directly referred to Chizuru as his partner, so it seems he had too many cocktails on Halloween to announce it.
Of course, the post attracted a lot of comments, noting:
- «He’s even more pathetic than Kazuya».
- «are you OK».
- «To hell with it! Stop writing your bullshit!».
- «Pills, take pills!».
- «Let the teacher rave».
- «Somebody help him, he’s gone crazy! Or is he trolling us all!».
- «My God, how is this man doing, it’s getting worse and worse».
- «Somebody help this man, he’s gone crazy».
- «Please seek psychiatric help».
- «He pulled Scarecrow 3000».

Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20-year-old 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. Wanting to ease his pain, he hires a girl through an online application. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who manages to win Kazuya’s favor with her incomparable beauty and lovely demeanor. But after reading similar experiences of other clients that Chizuru has had, Kazuya is convinced that her caring personality and warm smile were just an act on his heart and he gives her a poor rating.
Outraged, Chizuru criticizes him for his shameless hypocrisy, revealing his true temperamental personality. However, this one-sided exchange is cut short when Kazuya discovers that his grandmother has passed out. They run to the hospital and find Kazuya’s grandmother already in good condition. Confused by Chizuru’s presence, Grandma asks who the girl could be. Instinctively, Kazuya passes her off as his real girlfriend, forcing Chizuru to play the role. But with Kazuya still attached to Mami, how long can this difficult client and the girl who reluctantly rent him keep up his act?
