With less than 10 episodes currently released, the My darling dressing The TV anime has brought a ton of fans to the fandom who can’t get enough of Marin and Gojo’s serious relationship as they fall in love with each other. One person who loves the series more than most is the manga creator. Shinichi Fukudawho fell in love with the TV anime version of the manga.

“When I received the first two completed episodes of the anime version, it was so good that I was overwhelmed with emotion and cried!” Fukuda says Comic Natalie in a recent maintenance, the very first interview with the private manga creator. “I watched [the two episodes] again and again for 13 hours… I had never been so happy in my life as a manga artist.

Fukuda explained that when pre-order went live for the anime, she immediately grabbed a copy – not only to support the series she created, but to get the pre-order bonus, a lewdly drawn Sailor dakimakura by anime staff. “I could probably get a trial version, but I’ll just say ‘it’s neither here nor there.’ I just want as many Marin dakimakura as I can get!”

Yeah, that would be totally fine!

Corn Fukuda hasn’t always been moved by the anime, saying that when she was first told that My darling dressing would get an adaptation, they “had been up all night and not thinking properly, so I had a vague feeling it was someone else’s business.” Fukuda thought they were going to ‘cry and rejoice’ when she first heard the news, but because they were so tired she ‘didn’t feel it at all’, even though it was the one of his dreams to get an anime from their work. Although she didn’t think they would get an anime due to the explicit nature of the visual novel that was shown in the early chapters.

The entire interview is available to read on Comic Natalie in Japanese, with Fukuda talk about the manga series and how they thought Gojo’s voice actor Shoya Ishige was “too cool” to voice Gojo.

Yeah, that would be totally fine!

the My darling dressing The television anime is directed by Keisuke Shinohara and features animation produced at CloverWorks. The series began on January 8 and streams weekly right here on Crunchyroll, which describes the series as such:

Wakana Gojo is a high school student who wants to become a kashirashi, a master craftsman who makes traditional Japanese Hina dolls. Although he is passionate about the job, he knows nothing about the latest trends and finds it difficult to fit in with his class. The popular kids – especially one girl, Marin Kitagawa – seem to 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.
