My Dress-Up Darling has finally announced that a second season is now in the works, and the original creator behind the series is getting ready for what's next with some special new art for the occasion! Shinichi Fukuda's original manga series has been heating up thanks to the anime adaptation's debut earlier this Winter, and the series has gotten even more popular since the anime ended its run. That's what made the wait for a potential Season 2 all the more interesting as fans waiting to see whether or not the anime would continue the franchise's success.
As part of a special event celebrating the series in Japan, My Dress-Up Darling officially announced that the anime will be continuing with a sequel project. This new season has yet to have a date set for its new episodes just yet (or could end up being a movie project), but to celebrate the announcement series creator Shinichi Fukuda shared a special new illustration featuring Wakana Gojo and Marin Kitagawa celebrating not only one of Marin's major favorites but the fact that more anime will be coming our way in the future. Check it out below from the series' official Twitter account:
The first season of the series ended in a way that could have been used as an end for the anime overall, but a continuation is certainly welcome considering just how hot of a start to the year My Dress-Up Darling had. With 2022 rounding out with some huge franchises, this one might get lost in the shuffle despite dominating so much conversation earlier this year. If you wanted to catch up with the series to see what all the buzz is about, you can now find My Dress-Up Darling streaming with Crunchyroll!
They officially describe My Dress-Up Darling as such, "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."
