A girl who loves to cosplay and a guy who’s a pro with the sewing machine is a match made in heaven.
My Dress-Up Darling brings you the slow-burn romance between these two high-schoolers named Marin Kitagawa and Wakana Gojou.
The pair follow my favorite trope of the introvert guy and the extrovert girl and take it up a notch with their unique personalities. So, if you are a rom-com junkie like me, you should look forward to this one.
My Dress-Up Darling anime revealed its premiere in January 2022 and unveiled a cute and refreshing PV along with the announcement.
The PV starts with Wakana generally observing his beautiful and popular classmate Wakana while his monologue plays in the background. For him, socialite people such as Marin are like aliens to him, or creatures he can’t understand.
Wakana loves to make traditional Hina dolls and strives to become a professional doll craftsman someday.
Unfortunately, his passion resulted in a socially traumatizing situation in his childhood that left Wakana as a shy and antisocial person.
One day his ordinary life takes a wild turn when Marin interacts with Wakana, leaving him awestruck and confused.
It is revealed that Marin is a nerd herself who loves to cosplay and wants Wakana to make her costumes and outfits as she knows about his spectacular sewing skills.
He reluctantly agrees to it, starting their peculiar yet heartwarming friendship that soon turned into something more. If you’re wondering who’s playing these two characters, then we have that info right here for you:
|Marin Kitagawa||Hina Suguta||Haruka (AFTERLOST)|
|Wakana Gojou||Shoya Ishige||Yun Arikawa (Godzilla Singular Point)|
The anime is coming out at the perfect time of the year when you can grab a comfy spot, get your favorite hoodie or blanket, pour a hot beverage and watch this fantastic rom-com to enjoy the start of the year.
I cannot wait till it premiers!
