Tired of feeling alone, he decides to use an online dating app ‘Diamond’ to rent a girlfriend. Through the app, he meets Chizuru Mizuhara, who seems to be the perfect girlfriend anyone could ask for— cute, cheerful and caring.
However, finding her inauthentic and thinking she is playing with guys’ hearts, Kazuya gives her a low rating. Chizuru is angry at him, and he realizes that her personality is not at all like his first impression of her. At this moment, Kazuya’s grandmother collapses and is hospitalized, and so he brings Chizuru along with him. Though it is not anything serious, his grandmother now believes that Kazuya has finally got himself a girlfriend, and is smitten by her.
After that, he keeps renting Chizuru to convince his family and friends. However, things get a little complicated when they find that they are also next-door neighbors, and attend the same college. They are forced to continue their fake dating relationship, but feelings are bound to develop.
