Marin Kitagawa is the primary female lead of My Dress-Up Darling. She is a cheerful and playful high schooler who is also one of the most popular and beautiful girls at school. With her likeable personality, Marin is always true to herself, despite some of the males' judgments of her interest in and liking for anime, cosplay, and video games.

Aside from that, Marin is an independent and open-minded girl who doesn’t care less about gender stereotypes. She is portrayed as a very radical and mature girl when faced with social issues, including gender discrimination. For Marin, gender doesn’t define one’s personality and identity.

Gojo Wakana is the primary male lead in My Dress-Up Darling. He is a socially awkward introvert who always keeps to himself. As a result, Gojo doesn’t have any close friends or a girlfriend. He is always seen having internal monologues while assessing his actions in order to not get noticed or not get hated by the people that surround him. Despite his social anxiety, Gojo has an obvious liking for the art of Hina Dolls.


Gojo had been traumatized back in his childhood days. Gojo's childhood friend, Non-chan, despised him after she found out that he likes Hina Dolls, even if he is a guy. As a result, Gojo has prevented himself from making friends in order to protect his secret hobby.

Gojo and Marin initially met in the home economics classroom. They bumped into each other because of the school’s sewing machine. In the middle of searching, Marin went inside the classroom, only to find Gojo sewing. Surprised as ever, both of our main protagonists agreed to have a mutual partnership. As a result, Gojo is tasked with making cosplay pieces for Marin. From here on, Gojo and Marin continue to have a blossoming relationship while juggling their school lives together.

It is very obvious that Marin likes Gojo. Perhaps saying that Marin likes Gojo is an understatement. Notably, in Episode 6 of the anime, Marin realizes she likes Gojo so much that she thinks she already loves him.

It is not unlikely that Marin and Gojo will end up together, as the relationship between them has a solid foundation. Also, Gojo is an extremely likeable character despite his social anxiety and flaws, so we cannot blame Marin that she falls way too hard for Gojo in just a short period of time.

Aside from making Marin’s cosplay pieces, Gojo unintentionally bouts for Marin’s attention and affection because of his personality. He is a cute mess from the way he acts in front of Marin's ridiculous and flirtatious advances. Aside from that, Gojo always put Marin first, before others. Even if it drains him, he has worked hard to finish Marin’s Shizuku-tan cosplay in time.


From the way he told Marin that she was a very beautiful person, her heart could not take it easily because Gojo’s definition of beautiful is unlike any other. Indeed, it was a heart-tugging moment that will always be remembered in the series.

Also, who doesn’t like a good cook? Marin’s attraction level went through the roof as she tasted Gojo’s cooking. Furthermore, Marin is also seen taking some candid photos of Gojo because she loves how Gojo moves with her every time they are together. She even invited Gojo to hang out with her for the rest of her summer vacation just to spend time with him.
