Kazuya Kinoshita is a 20 year old student who has a wonderful friend: the brilliant Mami Nanami. But suddenly not anymore. Without warning, Mommy breaks up with him, leaving him heartbroken and lonely. To alleviate his pain, he hires a rental friend via an online application. His partner is Chizuru Mizuhara, who manages to win Kazuya's affection through her incomparable beauty and sweet demeanor.

But after reading similar experiences from other clients that Chizuru has made, Kazuya is sure that her caring personality and warm smile were just an act of playing with his heart, and he rates her poorly. With difficulty, Chizuru criticizes him for his shameless hypocrisy and reveals his true spirited personality. However, this one-way exchange is interrupted when Kazuya discovers that his grandmother has collapsed.

They run to the hospital and find Kazuya's grandmother already in good shape. Grandma is confused about Chizuru's presence and asks who this girl could be. Kazuya spontaneously introduces her as his real girlfriend and forces Chizuru to play the role. But how long can this difficult client and reluctant rental friend go on with their performance if Kazuya is still anchored in Mami?
