My Dress-Up Darling celebrates the anime debut of Marin’s first cosplay with the release of new art and key art from the latest episode.
Marin finally gets to show off her first cosplay in the latest My darling dressing drop of art.
The popular rom-com anime’s chief animation director, Jun Yamazaki, has revealed a new take on the series’ most recent episode on his personal Twitter account. Along with posting several key production images from the episode, Yamazaki also shared a brand new color illustration of Marin in the Shizuku-tan costume that Gojo made for her.
My darling dressing became the surprise hit of the winter 2022 anime season, with Marin Kitagawa’s character becoming particularly popular since the anime adaptation’s debut. The team behind the series also seems to share the fandom’s love for the character, as in addition to Yamazaki, several other animators and designers working on the series have also shared their own budding cosplayer art. Previous art drops include Yamazaki’s original reveal look at the character, as well as a showcase of the various outfits Marin wore throughout the series’ first four episodes.
The show tells the story of Wakana Gojo, a shy high school student who has dedicated his life to creating traditional Japanese-style characters, known as Hina dolls. Gojo went through most of his teenage years without having a single friend, but everything changes when he meets Marin Kitagawa, an outgoing classmate who is one of the most popular girls in his school. The two form an unlikely friendship after Marin discovers that Gojo’s doll-making skills can be used to help him achieve his dream of cosplaying all of his favorite anime and video game characters.
The series is based on a manga of the same name, which was created by author and artist Shinichi Fukuda. The television adaptation is produced at the CloverWorks animation studio (The Promised Never Land, Horimiya), which is also producing two other series airing during this anime season, the action-packed Tokyo’s 24th Ward and slice of life series Akebi Sailor Uniform. The anime is helmed by director Keisuke Shinohara, who previously worked on Little Witch Academy. The series stars Shoya Ishige (Haikyu!!) as the voice of Gojo and Hina Suguta (Bang Dream! Garupa Pico: Omori) as Marin. The anime has been praised for its cast of well-developed characters and its portrayal of the art of cosplay and the subculture surrounding it.My darling dressing is currently being simulcast by Crunchyroll and Funimation, with new episodes premiering every Sunday. The original manga is available in English, in print and digital format, from publisher Square Enix.
