My Dress-Up Darling‘s cute and fluffy ending theme is one of the best ending songs of the year so far, and people around the world can’t get enough of it. The music video for the ending theme “Koi no Yukue,” which is performed by debut artist and TikToker Akari Akase, has surpassed a whopping 4 million views in 52 days on YouTube and continues to climb as the season heads into its back half.
Due to Akase’s influence, the “Fuwa Fuwa Dance” TikTok trend has surpassed 1.6 million views on the video platform, after passing 1 million in just 30 hours. The trend started with Akase and is a TikTok version of “Koi no Yukue” that simplifies the dance seen in the music video for the song. Click here to see the dance on TikTok.
The My Dress-Up Darling TV anime is directed by Keisuke Shinohara and features animation produced at CloverWorks. The series began on January 8 and is streaming weekly right here on Crunchyroll, which describes the series as such:
Wakana Gojo is a high school boy who wants to become a kashirashi–a master craftsman who makes traditional Japanese Hina dolls. Though he’s gung-ho about the craft, he knows nothing about the latest trends, and has a hard time fitting in with his class. The popular kids–especially one girl, Marin Kitagawa–seem like they live in a completely different world. That all changes one day, when she shares an unexpected secret with him, and their completely different worlds collide.
