My Dress-Up Darling wrapped its first season, and even in its wake, the series is still growing leaps and bounds. After all, the rom-com is finding new netizens online each day, and it turns out the manga has become a go-to for fans missing out on the anime. A new report confirmed as much this week as My Dress-Up Darling revealed it hit a big record just weeks after its season one finale.
The report comes from the anime's official Twitter, and it confirms My Dress-Up Darling just hit a new sales record. Two weeks ago, the manga reached six million sales worldwide, and now that figure has risen to 6.5 million. Those kinds of sales are pretty wild for a manga with just one season under its belt, but that is the power of My Dress-Up Darling.
According to the report, the manga has also seen a huge rise in stock requests from Japanese bookstores. My Dress-Up Darling pushed bookstores nationwide to order an extra three million copies since its anime began, and a third of them were ordered since season one ended. Clearly, the anime's popularity is still growing, and fans are convinced these sales have all but assured a season two is happening.

Want to know more about My Dress-Up Darling? You can read up on its official synopsis below:
"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."
