The anime community seems to give a lot of their attention to rom-com lovers these days. Shortly after the announcement of the third season of Rent-A-Girlfriend, My Dress-Up Darling also released the announcement of its animated sequel.
The first season of My Dress-Up Darling aired from January to March this year, with many fans calling it the best romantic comedy anime of the year so far. The show even won a Prices winter 2022 from Anime Trending for Anime of the Season. With the appreciation the show has received from fans and considering its ongoing manga, there’s no reason the creators couldn’t go ahead with the show’s second season. And now we finally have the official announcement for it.
News regarding the sequel to the series comes straight from My Dress-Up Darling’s official site. An illustration by series author Shinichi Fukuda and a promotional video were also released to commemorate the announcement. Currently, the showrunners have not shared any further information regarding the sequel, but we can expect to get more details, including the release date, soon.
The artwork shows Marin Kitagawa sitting on Wakana Gojo’s shoulders, and both have Marin’s cosplay mask on their faces. While Marin’s mask is off to the side, Gojo’s face is covered with the mask. Gojo is also holding a banner that reads, “Congratulations, sequel production decision!” Here is the new artwork you need to check out.
The promo video was released on Aniplex’s official YouTube channel, and it brings back all the great moments of the first season, like Gojo preparing a cosplay dress for Marin, their casual encounters, and the times they shared with Sajuna and Shinju.
In the last episode of the first season, we saw many romantic moments between Gojo and Marin. After facing many troubles, they can finally go to the summer festival, where they enjoy fireworks together. Gojo saving her from drowning, the lovebirds watching a horror movie together, and Gojo carrying her in his hands because of her swollen feet – all those moments stole our hearts. But the one that took our breath away was when Marin confessed his love after Gojo fell asleep. Now the question everyone is asking is whether one of them will confess their love to the other, or do we still have to see them acting like just normal friends. Everything will soon be answered with the release of the second season.
here’s how Crunchyroll describes the story of My Dress-Up Darling –
Wakana Gojo is a high school student who wants to become a kashirashi, a master craftsman who makes traditional Japanese Hina dolls. Although he is passionate about the job, he knows nothing about the latest trends and finds it difficult to fit in with his class. The popular kids – especially one girl, Marin Kitagawa – seem to live in a completely different world. That all changes one day, when she shares an unexpected secret with him, and their completely different worlds collide.
