Until now, I've always had a five star rating! Give me back my five star rating right now, got it!?

― Chizuru to Kazuya Kinoshita[5]

Chizuru Ichinose (いち ちづる, Ichinose Chizuru?), alternatively known as Chizuru Mizuhara (みずはらづる, Mizuhara Chizuru?) in her "rental girlfriend" persona, is the main female protagonist of the Kanojo, Okarishimasu series. She is a college student at Nerima University who is majoring in Literature and she currently lives in Room 204 of Royal Hills Nerima, just next to Kazuya Kinoshita.


Chizuru has waist-length chestnut-brown hair that is most notably tied with bangs hanging on the right side and light brown eyes.

When posing as a diligent student, she wears glasses, a butterfly accessory and she sports double braided hair. It is later revealed that she does have sight trouble and she uses a pair of contact lenses when she is not going out with her friends.

Her presentation is represented as being a madonnna; possessing a beauty that one can only ever dream of having; light clothing, makeup, and accessories.


At first glance, Chizuru easily comes across as very kind and considerate, which positively surprises anyone who considers renting, and makes them give high ratings to her. However, she can be a little irritable, sharp and brash, and has a calculative streak, as seen when she dislikes when her ratings go down. She shows this side of her to people she dislikes or has to put up with, such as Kazuya, who gives her a low rating when he discovers that she treats her customers with the same kindness she had shown towards him.

That said, aside from this, Chizuru is a genuinely kind-hearted person. This is shown when she sees people in need or when Kazuya needs her help. Her genuine kindness is also seen when she becomes friends with Sumi, and she helps her becoming better at her job.

She gets annoyed when Kazuya introduces her to his grandmother. Chizuru told Kazuya immediately to tell his grandmother that they broke up, but she'd blush and get embarrassed when she hears Kazuya talking about her with his grandmother.

According to Chizuru's grandmother, Sayuri Ichinose, she used to be a 'clingy crybaby', something that she has overcome over the years. Still, there is a chance that she just hides it with her perfect facade around others.

During her junior high school years, Chizuru became somewhat rebellious, and often fought with boys. However, her grandpa guided her to believe in her dreams and become someone that helps people. This led to Chizuru greatly focusing on becoming an actress when she found Sayuri's old DVD.

When Sayuri is seemingly close to her end, Chizuru shows more of her weak side, and she refuses to accept a 'sad truth' after Kazuya had decided to give up on keeping the lie as he felt guilty to keep lying to a dying person. The trauma of the sad truth is from how sad she was during her spirit to chase on her dream and wishing her grandpa to see her before his death from the accident.


  • The name Chizuru means "thousand" (千, chu?) and "crane" (鶴, tsuru/zuru?).
    • An ancient Japanese legend says that if someone folded one thousand origami cranes, they'll be granted a wish by the gods, such as recovery from an illness, which is likely a reference to Sayuri Ichinose's illness.
      • It is also revealed that her naming was intended by her parents as they prayed that she would have a great achievement.
  • Chizuru's surname Ichinose means "one" (一, ichi?) and "swift current, rapids" (瀬, se?).
    • Her alias surname Mizuhara means "water" (水, mizu?) and "field, plain" (原, hara?).


  • Chizuru's favorite color is red.[6]
  • She uses Mizuhara as her alias surname to prevent risks of getting recognized.
