My Dress-Up Darling Story
My Dress-Up Darling is a story about a high school student named Wakana Gojou who harbors a secret. He actually has a hobby of creating traditional dolls. He aims in perfecting his craft to achieve his grandfather’s level of expertise. He feels that if he shared his hobby to anyone else, he will be ridiculed so he spends his days as a loner. Obviously, someone like Marin Kitagawa who is very popular and pretty would never enter his orbit. But when Marin discovered Wakana’s hobby of crafting dolls and sewing clothes, she admitted that she also has a hobby of cosplaying. She then asked for his help for her outfits, in which they eventually became close despite their differences.
