The cosplaying world of the My Dress-Up Darling TV anime has captured the imagination of everyone who watches it and has caused manga sales of Shinichi Fukuda‘s romantic comedy series to skyrocket, with around 2 million copies selling through to physical and digital storefronts since the anime began.


The official Twitter account for My Dress-Up Darling confirmed today that the series has had 5.5 million copies printed (physically) and sold (digitally) as of the ninth volume, which was released today in Japan.





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.
