Attack on Titan and Demon Slayer are dominating this anime season in the action department, but My Dress Up Darling is the most popular anime of the season when it comes to the romance genre. However, with great popularity comes weird censorship? Well, Something like that is happening in South Korea’s broadcast.
Via a popular Korean blog, FMkorea, some images were shared specifically from the 2nd episode of the My Dress Up Darling where Marin is trying out the swim suit, pointing out the unique censorship. This censorship went viral on social media because it was only applied to the lower part of the body, but not cleavage.
My Dress Up Darling anime is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Shinichi Fukuda. He started the manga serialization in January 2018 in Square Enix ‘s Young Gangan magazine. The manga has already exceeded 3.8 million copies sold.
CloverWorks studio produced the anime adaptation which started airing on January 8 on Crunchyroll. The series is directed by Keisuke Shinohara, and it will only have 12 episodes.
Wakana Gojo is a high school boy who wants to become a kashirashi–a master craftsman who makes traditional Japanese Hina dolls. Though he’s gung-ho about the craft, he knows nothing about the latest trends, and has a hard time fitting in with his class. The popular kids–especially one girl, Marin Kitagawa–seem like they 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
