My Dress Up Darling Season 2: When Will Season 2 Be Released?

“My Dress-Up Darling” is an anime movie that came out of nowhere and became a big hit in 2022. At the start of the series, the shy Wakana Gojo, whose favorite thing to do is make Hina ningyo dolls, becomes friends with Marin Kitagawa, a popular girl at his school, in a strange way.

Marin decides that she wants to dress up as some of her favorite characters, and Gojo uses his sewing skills to help her make new costumes.

After the first season of “My Dress-Up Darling” came out, viewers loved it so much that at least one “Attack on Titan” fan was angry that “My Dress-Up Darling” was getting close to being as popular as “Attack on Titan.”

The person who made the manga “My Dress-Up Darling” likes the show. They said that watching the first two episodes made them cry.

Given how popular the first season of “My Dress-Up Darling” was, fans have probably been waiting for news of a second season since the first one ended in late March 2022.

A few months later, the official social media accounts for the show announced that Season 2 is just starting to be made.

All About My Dress-Up Darling

Shinichi Fukuda is the author and illustrator of the Japanese manga series My Dress-Up Darling. It began serialization in Square Enix’s Young Gangan in January 2018, and by April 2021, it had been compiled into seven volumes. A new anime television series has been unveiled.

Wakana Gojou, a doll-artisan hopeful, lives alone after being traumatized as a child. People like lovely Marin Kitagawa, a stylish girl, are virtually aliens from another universe to Wakana.

When joyful Marin, who is never bashful, notices Wakana stitching one day after school, she bursts in with the intention of luring her silent classmate into her secret hobby: cosplay!

Will Wakana’s wounded heart be able to withstand this alien’s invasion?!

The Storyline of My Dress-Up Darling Season 2

Like the most well-known anime, “My Dress-Up Darling” is based on an ongoing manga series by artist Shinichi Fukuda. This means that, like the previous season, Season 2 will rely on current material, and fans will be able to tell which stories will be adapted.

To begin with, as Reddit user Ver3232 pointed out in a debate on Season 2’s debut, Season 1 adapts Chapters 1-39 of the manga “My Dress-Up Darling.” As a result, some people, notably Steeldj22, have asked for Season 2 to start with Chapter 40.

The show’s entrance sequence also incorporates footage of a costume from Chapter 40 of the manga, hinting that fans would see this look for the first time in the series proper in Season 2, Episode 1.

According to the novel, “My Dress-Up Darling” Season 2 will center on the developing and blossoming romance between Wakana Gojo and Marin Kitagawa, as well as how the characters delve deeper into the broad and varied world of cosplay.

Release Date of My Dress Up Darling Season 2

While the premiere date for My Dress Up Darling season 2 has not yet been announced, we may make some educated guesses based on the production schedule of season 1.

The anime adaptation of the popular manga series was revealed in the April 2021 issue of Young Gangan magazine, number nine. Ten months later, on January 9, 2023, Episode 1 would premiere on Japanese television networks as part of the Winter 2023 anime lineup.

The only issue is the current quantity of source material accessible to CloverWorks for season 2. As previously mentioned, the first season of the manga covered up to volume 5, with nine volumes published in Japan.

If CloverWorks wishes to keep its 12-episode season duration, they should ideally wait until at least one, if not two, additional manga volumes have been published.

According to Shinichi Fukuda’s current release timetable for new material, fans can anticipate the next volume to be released in approximately five or six months, or around November 2022.

Assuming CloverWorks could maintain a comparable production schedule for the second season, Marin and Gojo may theoretically return in July 2023; however, a return in October 2023 on the Fall schedule is also quite probable.

Expected Cast of My Dress-Up Darling Season 2

The U.S. version of “My Dress-Up Darling” comes in two different versions. One keeps the original language track, while the other adds English subtitles and has an extra cast of actors speaking the dialogue in English. This is how most large anime productions that first aired in Japan are made. It’s likely that the main cast members from both seasons of “My Dress-Up Darling” will return for Season 2.

Wakana Gojo, a lonely doll maker, and costume tailor were played by Shoya Ishige in the original Japanese version, while Paul Date played a role in the English dub. Marin Kitagawa, a famous cosplayer, was played by Hina Suguta in Japanese and Amanda Lee in English.

Another high school-aged cosplayer, Sajuna Inui, was played by Atsumi Tanezaki and Risa Mei in the Japanese and English versions of the film, respectively. At the same time, Hina Yomiya and Jad Saxton both played the character’s sister, Shinju Inui. Misako Tomioka is set to return as the show’s narrator for Season 2 of “My Dress-Up Darling.”

Trailer of My Dress-Up Darling Season 2

Even though the official “My Dress-Up Darling” Twitter account in Japanese confirmed that a sequel is in the works, not much else is known about how it is coming together.

In the tweet about the second season of “My Dress-Up Darling,” there is a link to a trailer on the Japanese-language YouTube page of Sony-owned anime distributor Aniplex.

But this teaser is made up of only the existing video, so it doesn’t give any hints about what’s to come. Instead, it’s more of a tribute to what fans liked about Season 1.

It’s also important to note that the title of the trailer, Gokusen seisaku kettei, suggests that it’s like a choice to keep going with the series. This video doesn’t say anything about how the second season is different from, say, a movie.

But in a Tweet about the news, animation producer Shota Umehara called the sequel “two or Niki,” which suggests that there will be a second season. This gives some background to the first trailer, which wasn’t very detailed.
