The official website of the Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi Wo Suru (My Dress-Up Darling) television anime announced the anime sequel on Saturday, revealing a promotional video. Original creator Shinichi Fukuda made an illustration celebrating the announcement (pictured).
Produced by Cloverworks, the television anime aired in winter 2022 in 12 episodes. Crunchyroll and Funimation aired the first season with subtitles and later with an English dub.
Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi Wo Tsuru adapted Fukuda’s romantic slice-of-life manga, which debuted in Young Gangan magazine in January 2018. Square Enix shipped the ninth volume on March 25 and the tenth volume scheduled for release on September 24.
Square Enix also began releasing the manga in English in April 2020 under the Manga & Books imprint. The publisher shipped the sixth volume on August 16.
High school student Wakana Gojou spends his days perfecting the art of making Hina dolls, hoping to eventually reach his grandfather’s level of expertise. While her fellow teens are busy with pop culture, Gojou finds joy in sewing clothes for her dolls. Nonetheless, he makes great efforts to keep his unique hobby a secret, as he believes he will be ridiculed if it is revealed.
Enter Marin Kitagawa, an extraordinarily beautiful girl whose confidence and poise are the stark contrast of Gojou’s meekness. It would defy common sense to mingle with the likes of Kitagawa for the friendless Gojou, who is always surrounded by his teammates. However, the unthinkable happens when Kitagawa discovers Gojou’s skills with a sewing machine and confesses to him candidly about his hobby: cosplay. Because her sewing skills are pathetic, she decides to seek his help.
As Gojou and Kitagawa work together on one cosplay costume after another, they can’t help but grow closer—even though their lives are apart. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
