Marin and Gojou are very good friends, but at this point in the series, they are not yet dating or together as a couple. They are extremely close as both Gojou and Marin share one common interest: beautiful things. Although their questionable closeness did spark up rumors, Gojo denied it profusely as he thought someone as beautiful as Marin would never date him.
Kitagawa Marin and Wakana Gojou are characters in the hit series My Dress Up Darling. The show is a slice-of-life-ish genre that revolves around Marin, who is an otaku dreaming to be a cosplayer, and Gojo, a traditional Japanese doll maker, who never really had any friends. Their paths crossed when they saw each other at the school’s Fashion/Sewing Club.
Desperate to learn more about clothes, Wakana Gojou goes there every day to learn how to properly sew dresses for the traditional Japanese dolls that he makes. One day, while he was scanning for the fabric to use on the dolls, he comes across a girl with a worn-out dress. Upon recognizing him as her classmate, Kitagawa Marin immediately explained the situation she was in.
Long story short, they reached an agreement where Gojou would make the dresses Marin would use for her cosplays. Since then, they began hanging out every day to discuss the needs for their cosplay project.
Just a little after the first cosplay, Marin suddenly recognized that she had feelings for Gojou. Not like “I like him…” kind of feelings but a little something like… “OH MY GOD, I LOVE THIS MAN I COULD MARRY HIM” kind of feelings. Which was all understandable because who wouldn’t love a man who can cook, clean, and who’d support you in your every endeavor?
But Marin never acted upon these feelings, she just kept them to herself. Which actually was quite sad since Gojou seemed like he would have confessed too if Marin just said she liked him. Though there is no romantic connection between these two at the moment, the door is still wide open for a change of pace and some romance.
My Dress Up Darling is geared for a second season, so stay tuned for more updates!
