As of the 10th volume of the manga, which was released on Saturday, My Dress-Up Darling by Shinichi Fukuda (Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru) has sold 7.5 million copies, according to the publishing house Square Enix.
On the same day, Square Enix also released the My Dress-Up Darling television anime official fanbook (seen below).
A special gallery from the anime, character introductions and character sheets, exclusive interviews, and an illustration and remark from Fukuda are all included in the official fanbook for the television anime.
A “Marin’s room” acrylic diorama is included in the manga’s special edition 10th volume.
Earlier this month, the sequel to the television anime was announced on its official website. The original anime had a January 9 launch and ran for 12 episodes. The anime was broadcast live by Funimation, who also broadcast the English dub. The English dub and animation are also available on Crunchyroll.
The manga is printed in English by Square Enix Manga & Books, which provides the following plot summary:
Traumatized by a childhood incident involving a classmate who disapproved of his love of traditional dolls, doll-artisan hopeful Wakana Goj spends his days alone and finds comfort in the home economics classroom at his high school. Wakana views individuals like stylish Marin Kitagawa, a lady who is constantly surrounded by a crowd of friends, as being essentially extraterrestrials from another planet. However, lively Marin, who is not bashful, interrupts Wakana as she works on a project after school with the intention of luring her into her hidden interest of cosplay.
In January 2018, the manga made its debut in Square Enix’s Young Gangan publication. On August 16 and January 24, respectively, Square Enix Manga & Books released the sixth and seventh volumes in English.
