“My Dress-Up Darling” might be one of 2022’s most surprising anime hits. At the beginning of the show, shy Wakana Gojo, whose main hobby is making Hina Ningyo dolls, becomes friends with Marin Kitagawa, a popular girl at his school, which seems like a strange thing to happen.
Marin wants to dress up as some of her favorite characters, and Gojo uses his sewing skills to help her come up with new costumes. When the first season of “My Dress-Up Darling” came out, viewers praised it a lot.
At least one “Attack on Titan” fan got mad at “My Dress-Up Darling” because its popularity was getting close to that of “Attack on Titan.” In fact, the person who wrote the manga “My Dress-Up Darling” is a fan of the show and said that the first two episodes made them cry.
Given how popular the first season of “My Dress-Up Darling” was, many fans have probably been waiting for news of a second season ever since it ended in March 2022. Luckily, a few months later, the official social media accounts for the show announced that Season 2 is now being made.
The Release Date of My Dress Up Darling
The release date for My Dress-Up Darling: Season 2 hasn’t been officially announced yet. But in September 2022, the anime’s creators said in a new trailer that a second season is being made. You can watch that trailer below.
Even though it’s good news that the show is coming back, anime production takes a long time, so you should expect to wait at least a couple of years before the second season airs. The most likely year for Season 2 to come out is 2023.

What Happens in Season 2 of My Dress-Up Darling?
Like most popular anime, “My Dress-Up Darling” is based on a manga series by Shinichi Fukuda that is still going on. This means that Season 2 will take stories from the first season, just like the first season did, and fans have a pretty good idea of which stories will be used.
First of all, it’s important to note what Reddit user Ver3232 said in a thread about the Season 2 news: Season 1 is based on Chapters 1–39 of the “My Dress-Up Darling” manga. Because of this, a few users, like Steeldj22, have suggested that Season 2 will begin with Chapter 40.
TierRune even pointed out that the show’s opening sequence shows a costume from Chapter 40 of the manga, which suggests that this look will be seen for the first time in Season 2, Episode 1 of the show itself.
Fans of “My Dress-Up Darling” who want to learn more about Season 2’s plot can, of course, start reading the manga that inspired it in Chapter 40.
If “My Dress-Up Darling” Season 2 stays true to the books, it will show how the relationship between Wakana Gojo and Marin Kitagawa grows and changes, and how the characters learn more about the complicated world of cosplay.
