The My Dress-Up Darling anime adaptation is set to continue with a sequel season. An announcement trailer and a commemorative illustration from the manga’s creator Shinichi Fukuda have been released.

My Dress-Up Darling‘s first season premiered on January 8 and ran for 12 episodes. The Square Enix-published manga began in 2018 and has nine tankoubon volumes as of March 2022.

Square Enix describes the manga as:

Traumatized by a childhood incident with a friend who took exception to his love of traditional dolls, doll-artisan hopeful Wakana Gojou passes his days as a loner, finding solace in the home ec room at his high school. To Wakana, people like beautiful Marin Kitagawa, a trendy girl who’s always surrounded by a throng of friends, is practically an alien from another world. But when cheerful Marin–never one to be shy–spots Wakana sewing away one day after school, she barges in with the aim of roping her quiet classmante into her secret hobby: cosplay! Will Wakana’s wounded heart be able to handle the invasion from this sexy alien?!

The first season’s main staff includes Keisuke Shinohara (Black Fox) as director, Yoriko Tomita (Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose) as series scriptwriter and supervisor, Yoshihiro Hiramine (Black Fox unit director) as assistant director, Naoya Takahashi (Wonder Egg Priority animation director, key animator et al.) as main animator, and Kazumasa Ishida (Kiznaiver assistant character designer) as character designer and chief animation director. CloverWorks produced the show.

He still likes video games, but now focuses on writing anime-related news content and the occasional review for Anime Trending. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
