In this year’s ninth edition of the magazine Young Gangan it was confirmed that the manga written and illustrated by Shinichi Fukuda, Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (My Dress Up Darling), has exceeded 6 million accumulated copies in circulation. This is 2.5 million copies more than it had at the start of the year, just as the anime adaptation began airing.
The work had exceeded 5 million copies in circulation in February this year. However, it should be noted that this number is not an indicator of sales. That is, the manga has released 2.5 million more copies on the market since the premiere of the anime, but it does not mean that exactly 2.5 million have already been sold.
The anime adaptation premiered on January 8 and had a total of twelve episodes, while the platforms Crunchyroll Y Funimation are responsible for its distribution in the West, also with a dubbing into Latin Spanish. For his part, Fukuda publishes the manga in the magazine Young Gangan from the publisher Square Enix since January 2018.
Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru Synopsis
Engrossed in the family business of traditional doll making, Wakana Gojou is a reserved first-year high school student with no friends. With the painful memory of a childhood friend’s disdain for his interest, Gojou can’t relate to his classmates and his hobbies, causing him to isolate himself. Gojou has not yet perfected the making of the dolls’ faces, but he is exceptionally skilled at making his clothes. His skill with the sewing machine is soon discovered by his beautiful classmate Marin Kitagawa, whose boldness and honesty Gojou both admires and envies. She instantly shares with Gojou his own hobby: he likes to dress up as erotic video game characters.
However, Kitagawa does not know how to sew her own suits, which leads her to seek Gojou’s expertise. Being drawn into the lovely girl’s endless adventures related to cosplay, Ella Kitagawa becomes the first friend of hers who fully accepts her. Thus, although they are polar opposites, their relationship slowly flourishes thanks to her ability to help each other in the intricate world of cosplay.
