The manga series My Dress-Up Darling was created by Shinichi Fukuda. The plot centers on the romance between Marine Kitagawa, a cosplay enthusiast, and Wakana Gojo, a high school student with aspirations of becoming a Hina doll maker. This article will discuss a potential second season of an anime series adaptation created by CloverWorks studio that premiered on January 9, 2022.
My Dress-Up Darling‘s second season hasn’t been officially announced yet. We won’t likely learn anything about the second season of the show until after the first season, which is currently airing, has concluded. There is enough material for a second adaptation if the popularity of the anime matches that of the manga, so we’ll probably hear about it this year, with the season possibly premiering in 2023.
Will There Be a Second Season of My Dress-up Darling? Release Date for Dress-up Darling Season 2
Only two episodes of the first season of My Dress-Up Darling have aired in Japan as of the time of writing this article, which was completed on January 9, 2022. My Dress-Up Darling’s first season will now have a total of 12 episodes, as was confirmed on Twitter, though the precise release date was not shared.

We can only make wild assumptions at this point because it is still very early in season one to talk about a potential sequel season. Specifically, season one won’t likely adapt the entire manga; there have been eight volumes published so far, and the first season will likely adapt at most four of them.
There is unquestionably enough content for a second season, especially in light of the fact that the manga is still in progress and that new volumes are on the way. Does that imply that we will receive one?
There is no denying the popularity of manga. Even though it isn’t as well-known as some classic shonen titles, it does have a fan base and its sales are decent for a slice-of-life game. The fans have been waiting impatiently for an anime adaptation, and if new fans begin to enjoy it as well (anime are typically more well-liked worldwide than manga), My Dress-Up Darling will undoubtedly get a second season.
My Dress-Up Darling is a likely candidate for a renewal based on the information we have so far, but we don’t actually know when or if that will happen. We believe it would be best to wait until the first season is over before drawing any conclusions and that we will learn more this year as it progresses.
Trailer for Season 2 of My Dress-up Darling
Now that you are aware of all the information and our opinions surrounding My Dress-Up Darling season 2, you have probably concluded for yourself that there isn’t a trailer available.
This is due to the fact that it is still too early for a second season trailer; at the time this article was written, the second episode of the first season had not even started airing. As a result, we must first wait for a second season to be officially announced before having any expectations of seeing a trailer.
As we previously stated, My Dress-Up Doll may be a strong contender for renewal, but it’s still too early to say. We need to wait and see how well the first season performs before we can accurately predict how popular the anime will be given that the manga is very popular and it has the potential to be as well. But as of right now, My Dress-Up Darling might be a strong contender for renewal.
In light of everything we’ve said, it’s unlikely that a My Dress-Up Darling season two trailer will surface before the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023, depending on when the potential second season will air.
My Dress-up Darling Season 2 Plot
My Dress-Up Darling’s overarching storyline is fairly straightforward and centers on Wakana Gojo and Marin Kitagawa’s day-to-day interactions. It is obvious what the show will be about because it is a slice-of-life anime with comedy and romantic elements. The show is fairly realistic and based on actual events, albeit with the typical anime twist.
Wakana Gojo, a freshman in high school, wants to specialize in making Hina dolls. His well-liked classmate Marine Kitagawa notices him making doll costumes in the school’s dressmaking room one day during his first semester.
Wakana is asked to make a costume of a video game character for Marine, who has been wanting to cosplay for a while and has noticed Wakana’s sewing prowess. Despite the fact that Wakana had never created human-sized costumes, he agrees to Marine’s request after being prodded by her intense emotions.
What Happens in the First Season of My Dress-up Darling?
We don’t really know how much of the first season’s story will be adapted. Assuming that nothing will be skipped along the way and that there won’t be any filler material, we assume that the first season, which will have 12 episodes, will cover the first four or five volumes of the manga. Based on our familiarity with other recent releases that had a comparable number of episodes per season, we made this assumption.
Nevertheless, we could be totally off with our predictions, so don’t really take our word for it. As of the time this article was written, only two episodes had already aired, and there are still a few months until the season’s conclusion, so it will be some time before we learn where season one will end. We must make do with what we have in the interim.
My Dress-up Darling Cast and Characters
We’re still in the first season of My Dress-Up Darling, so it’s too early to speculate about the cast and characters of a potential second season. We really don’t anticipate too many changes in the season two plot, though, given that it’s a slice-of-life anime series. The main characters from season one who is most likely to return for a second season are as follows:
Wakana Gojo is a freshman in high school. He was an orphan who was raised by his grandfather, a maker of Hina dolls, who also served as an inspiration for him to become kashira-shi, a maker of hina doll heads.
Wakana is over 180 cm tall and has a large build, but he is reclusive and suffers from low self-esteem as a result of bitter memories of being told off by a childhood friend who believed that a boy shouldn’t play with girls’ dolls. He also kept his love of making dolls a secret and didn’t have any real friends until he met Marin. Shoya Ishige provides his voice.
Sajuna Inui, a cosplayer who goes by “Juju,” performs. She is a student at a girls’ school in her second year of high school. Sajuna’s physique, however, belies her years, leading Wakana and Marin to mistake her for an elementary or middle schooler. She is, like Marin, an outspoken, active person who will stop at nothing to accomplish her objectives. She has Atsumi Tanezaki as her voice.
Sajuna’s younger sister, Shinju Inui, is quiet and reserved. Shinju attends junior high school, but she is so much bigger than her little sister that Wakana’s uniform almost fits her. She stands 178 cm tall and has a curvy figure. Shinju is close to and highly respects her sister.
Shinju dresses up as a photographer for Sajun’s cosplays and borrows their father’s camera. She is also proficient in using a computer to edit and upload the captured images. She wanted to start cosplaying on her own, but she resisted because she didn’t want to look as good as her sister. Hina Yomiya does her voice.
