The Crunchyroll’s Winter 2022 lineup has a little bit of everything, including a cosplay rom-com! Based on the manga by Shinichi Fukuda, the My Dress-Up Darling anime kicks off on Crunchyroll today, and you can find out what kind of situation protagonist Wakana Gojo has gotten himself into with Marin Kitagawa in our spotlight below.
Launch Time: January 8
Territories: North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, CIS, MENA and India
Wakana Gojo is a high school boy who wants to become a kashirashi–a master craftsman who makes traditional Japanese Hina dolls. Though he’s gung-ho about the craft, he knows nothing about the latest trends, and has a hard time fitting in with his class. The popular kids–especially one girl, Marin Kitagawa–seem like they live in a completely different world. That all changes one day, when she shares an unexpected secret with him, and their completely different worlds collide. CloverWorks is excited to present the long-awaited anime adaptation of Shinichi Fukuda’s popular manga! Get ready for the cosplay story of a lifetime!
