This article contains spoilers for the manga "Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (My Dress-Up Darling)". Discretion is advised to the reader.

There's no denying that "Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (My Dress-Up Darling)" is one of the biggest romantic comedies of the moment, hugely boosted by a successful anime adaptation in 2022 that, sadly, was put on hold despite a sequel being officially promised. What's more, author Shinichi Fukuda has been slowing down her pace of publication, even though the work is currently in one of its most dramatic arcs.

No, no one has died and there is no imminent danger coming, the current story arc has had readers on the edge of their seats as the relationship between the protagonists, Wakana Gojo and Marin Kitagawa, has deteriorated to a point where it is completely in danger. Following a successful performance by Marin Kitagawa with a cosplay of Haniel in the Divine Mandate Arc, Marin received an official offer to become a professional cosplayer through an agency.

However, it is more than clear that the agency wants to hire her, not Gojo, so accepting the proposal implies that the relationship between the two will inevitably fracture, as Gojo will no longer be able to make outfits for her. So far, Marin has kept the subject of the proposal under wraps, but the most recent chapter has featured an unexpected development that has left readers quite worried.

The distance between the two has grown quite a bit, with both clearly suffering in this situation. It's only been a few weeks since Comiket, the event with which Marin Kitagawa became known. However, preparations for the Hina Doll Festival are now beginning, so cosplay activities between the two will have to be paused for a while, or perhaps even longer than anticipated.

Marin Kitagawa, on the other hand, is at her worst emotionally. You can feel his strategy of "doing nothing and letting time give the answer", but he also desperately tries to speed things up and tell Gojo about the proposal, although he doesn't do it for fear of how things might turn out.

Although the preparations for the upcoming festival were the perfect opportunity to get back together, Marin thought she could also use the moment to tell Gojo about the situation. However, it didn't take long for him to change his mind because it would ruin the only time they've had together in a while.

"I must keep faking a smile, am I doing it right?" she says to herself. And then comes a big revelation that some already assumed, because Gojo says that his passion for hina dolls comes not only from the fact that he admires them for their beauty, but because having dedicated time to training in this art helped him a lot to cope with the death of his parents during his childhood.

This is precisely why Non-chan's words hurt him so much in the past, because the hina dolls were what practically helped him survive a tragedy that few imagine. "Even though Wa-chan is a boy, why do you like dolls? You're nasty and I hate you!" were the words Non-chan said to him in his childhood.

In this way, Gojo seems to take it for granted that his relationship with Marin will end the moment their collaborative relationship in the world of cosplay ends. Although he tries to cope with it like any other situation in his past, it seems that this is the most complicated of his life. Meanwhile, this revelation makes Marin see that asking him to continue helping her in cosplay is simply an obstacle for him to realize his dream. How will they be able to come up with a solution that satisfies both of them?

And while the relationship between the two continues to fracture, the most unexpected moment arrives: the return of Non-chan. The same girl who insulted Gojo in the past and called him "nasty" for his taste in dolls. What is the author's intention in bringing this character back? Although it scares many, it clearly could be the key piece of the puzzle.

Many propose that his return was unnecessary, but how will Marin Kitagawa react when he realizes that the girl in front of him was the one who traumatized the man he loves?

  • "Damn, it's the rat girl from before. Just when I thought they were going to solve their problems during this chapter, this arrives. It better that this serves to finally give Marin the courage to speak her mind."
  • "Oh no, why don't they break up at once? There's no point in continuing this drama."
  • "Oh no, the author is going to keep extending this manga now that she's made it monthly, you'd think it's to write longer chapters, but not even that."
  • "After such a long wait, is this the chapter we received? It's too short."
  • "That's great, it's been five months and these two haven't had 'the talk'. And now the author brings the girl who traumatized Gojo to the scene."
  • "I hope that bitch serves as a catalyst for these two idiots to finally come out."
  • "That's probably the author's intention. There's not a lot of progress so far, but if Marin gets on the defensive against a potential enemy, we could have the breakthrough we want."
  • "Is this a sudden love triangle? If it turns out that Non-chan has been in love with Gojo all along, this manga will turn into a fetid piece of shit."
  • "Why does the author feel the need to make Gojo's life more difficult? I guess we'll have to wait another month to finally have a resolution to the issue between Gojo and Marin."
  • "Well, maybe this bitch will help Gojo realize how he feels about Marin. I can't help but think that Gojo is as good as he is a bad protagonist at the same time, there are times when I absolutely hate him."
