A beautiful and charismatic waifu (female lead), a charming and dashing boy. A simple but endearing story… And one of the few anime series focused on the art of cosplay!
As we told you a few weeks ago, My Dress Up Darling is a faithful adaptation to the homonymous manga by Shin’ichi Fukuda, whose name in Japanese would be その着せ替え人形ビスク・ドールは恋をする (Sono Bisuku Dōru wa Koi o Suru) and which is about a boy who wants to be an expert in designing and making dolls Hinamatsuri like his grandfather, when he meets a beautiful and popular gal girl at his school… who turns out to be secretly a fan of the art of cosplay (dressing up like famous characters from anime, manga, and video games!)
And as we told you back then, both the story and the personality of Marin Kitagawa causes some situations ecchi (sensual or sexy) that caused censorship in some regions, but even so the series was placed in the first places of preference in Crunchyroll worldwide, as well as on television in Japan.
Why was it so successful?
Something radical in this process was the commitment of the director Keisuke Shinohara and the screenwriter Yoriko Tomita (tokyo avengers) for capturing Fukuda’s lines and dialogues with great affection in the anime adaptation.
Needless to say, the studies CloverWorks make up high-quality anime, such as Wonder Egg Priority, The Promised Neverland and Fairytailalso counting on the impeccable Japanese cast led by Wakana Gojō and Marin Kitagawa, with an excellent Latin dubbing (by the way) with Erika Langarica (in this corner of the world) What Marin, Victor Ugarte (Harry Potter) What Wakana Gojō and Charles Second (Piccolo from dragon ball) like grandpa Kaoru.
The development of the episodes perfectly balances comedy, romance, touches of fan service and splendid character/scenario design with nice background music and two beautiful songs for his entrance and exit.
Everything is perfect!
Is a second season possible soon?
A second season is expected to arrive in 2023, although the production did not confirm anything (as they usually do at the end of a successful season), but there is enough source material, since the manga work has collected 9 volumes since its debut in 2018, with monthly episodes still in publication.
What a thrill! As Marin’s future cosplays for the small screen are defined, don’t miss the first season of My Dress Up Darling both in Crunchyroll like in Funimation (Japanese subtitled and Latin Spanish versions).
