TOWER OF GOD STREAM OR SKIP?

  INTRODUCTION The South Korean masterpiece illustrated by SIU that webtoon readers have admittedly been committed to since June 30th, 2010, finally gets an anime adaption through Crunchyroll in 2020. A wave of nostalgia hit fans upon witnessing their seemingly popular webtoon get its own anime. This highly acclaimed anime arguably peaked and hailed its well-deserved title.

Kanojo Okar Kanojo Okarishimasu is quite a fan favorite anime airing this summer 2020.

Kanojo Okarishimasu or just, Rent a Girlfriend is a Shonen Romance anime that has somehow managed to put itself apart from other harem anime in the genre, with a story filled with soo much the realism that even the hardcore anime fans have started to take their hands off this anime. So, let us take a deeper look at the anime and see what makes this show soo appealing, yet soo much perplexing at the same time. Plot: Kanojo Okarishimasu starts us off with a college student, Kazuya Kinoshita, who just lost his first girlfriend.
