Gojo was like an invisible person in his entire school, where he had no one to talk to or spend his time with. Due to his lonely personality, his classmates often use him to accomplish school chores. 

That did not happen until he met Marin Kitagawa. Ont he other hand, she was a beautiful, loud, noisy girl who was adored by all. No matter where she went, all of the eyes were on her. 

She is one of the popular characters who is adored by the female demographics as well. Her love for the anime character Shizuka-tan and passion for cosplaying made her closer to Wakana. 

Surprisingly Gojo also came into the limelight. Now, the two of them are collaborating to follow their passion and determination for cosplaying and dolls.

Wakana Gojo

He is a kind young high school student who does not have any friends. Surprisingly, his hobbies and preference are totally different from those of his age.

Marin Kitagawa

Beautiful, hot, and an ideal student Marin Kitagawa is an extrovert character who is a big Otaku. She is proactive, clumsy with details, and head over heels for an anime character.

Marin has six piercings in her right ear and often wears ear accessories. She prefers wearing a hoop on her ear lobe, three studs, and two dynamic ear accessories. 

Sajuna Inui

Despite being a sophomore, her appearance mistook her for a high or elementary school student. She is an outgoing personality and does not step back to get what she wants by hook or crook. 

However, she has a heart of gold and can ask for forgiveness if she feels like it. She appears regular from episode six.

Shinju Inui

The younger sister of Sajuna, Shinju, is the shy one. Just like her sister, she is also into cosplaying. But is afraid to do so because of her sister’s high standards. 

Unlike Sajuna, she has a voluptuous figure, and many mistake her for being an adult. But when it comes to her cosplaying choice, she prefers to be guys.

Well, My Dress Up Darling is not everyone’s cup of tea. If you are a man then it is obvious that you are thoroughly going to enjoy the show because it is solely produced to entertain a certain gender.

However, if you are a girl then some scenes might offend you and eventually ruin your experience. In addition, if you are a cosplayer then this anime must be number one on your list.

Also, we feel that the story development of this anime is pretty slow which might bother some of the viewers.
