This year’s 21st issue of Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine revealed the staff members for the television anime of Shinichi Fukuda‘s My Dress-Up Darling (Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru) manga on Friday. The anime’s official website also revealed a new visual.

Yoriko Tomita (As Miss Beelzebub Likes, Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose) is in charge of the series scripts.

Takeshi Nakatsuka (Magical Girl Ore, Brothers Conflict) is composing the music, and Akiko Fujita is the sound director.
Square Enix Manga & Books publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Traumatized by a childhood incident with a friend who took exception to his love of traditional dolls, doll-artisan hopeful Wakana Gojō passes his days as a loner, finding solace in the home ec room at his high school. To Wakana, people like beautiful Marin Kitagawa, a trendy girl who’s always surrounded by a throng of friends, is practically an alien from another world. But when cheerful Marin–never one to be shy–spots Wakana sewing away one day after school, she barges in with the aim of roping her quiet classmate into her secret hobby: cosplay.
The manga launched in Young Gangan in Janaury 2018. Square Enix published the manga’s seventh volume on April 24, and will publish the eighth volume on October 25. Square Enix Manga & Books published the fourth volume in English on June 8.
