The fervor is palpable as fans around the globe anticipate the return of one of the breakout anime hits, “My Dress-Up Darling,” or “Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru” for those of you purists. A darling (pun very much intended) blend of romance, comedy, and a dash of the cosplay world has made this anime a global sensation. The clincher? A second season is no longer a question of if, but when. Here’s what we know and why you should be on the edge of your seat for My Dress-Up Darling Season 2.
From Manga’s Best-Kept Secret to Global Phenomenon
Let’s wind back the clock a bit. Before its anime adaptation, My Dress-Up Darling was a manga quietly wooing a dedicated reader base. Yet, the anime took the fandom from modest to meteoric.
The manga has more eyes on it than ever, and the first anime season did super well worldwide, especially here in the West,
says a source close to the production.

Tension is High: What’s the Holdup?
It’s been a year and some change since we last saw Marin Kitagawa and Wakana Gojou hit our screens. The lack of a second season has become nearly unbearable for fans, especially given that a second season is no longer a mere whisper but an official announcement.
The wait is unbearable when we know the second season has already been announced,
lament a die-hard group of fans.
As it stands, no specifics have been released since the announcement in September 2022. The creators have kept mum about what chapters the second season will cover or even how many episodes we’re in for. Though insiders confirm,
There is more than enough manga material to adapt into another season.

Mark Your Calendars, Maybe?
So when are we finally going to see Marin and Gojou’s continuing saga? It doesn’t look like the second season is slated for the immediate future. Insiders speculate that we might have to wait until at least Spring 2024. But hey, good things come to those who wait, right?
The Adventures Ahead: The Cosplay, The Romance, Oh My!
Season 2 promises to be a rollercoaster of emotions and a feast for the senses.
There are even more cute and tense moments between Marin and Gojou, some great cosplay events, and a pretty exciting plot to end the next season,
reveal some avid readers of the manga.
Our beloved Marin Kitagawa’s journey as a cosplayer will further unfold. She’s poised to grow more comfortable in her cosplay skin and you bet Gojou is right there alongside her. Let’s not forget Gojou himself, who will dive deeper into his past and also wrestle with some serious questions about his future in the world of cosplay. Word on the street is that new characters like Amane and Akira will make their debut, adding a new layer of complexity to Marin and Gojou’s already captivating world.

Will the Manga Outrun the Anime?
With 95 chapters and counting, the manga is still very much an ongoing project. So don’t worry about running out of source material anytime soon. The story has ample room for character development, especially given that
Marin has yet to confess to Gojou properly,
according to dedicated readers of the manga.
So not only can we expect a riveting second season, but there’s also plenty of manga material for future seasons as well.
