Gojou agrees to make Marin’s costume. Marin is eager to start and surprises him at his home to take measurements.
Episode 2 – “Wanna Hurry Up, and Do It?”
The gal invasion fantasy continues in My Dress-Up Darling. We’re at the part of h-doujin when the hot chick delivers herself to the awkward boy’s room. Then she strips down and insists he put his hands all over her body. The anime’s premise is a perfect fit for the PG version of the gal invasion story. Just like cast-off figurines and Barbie Dolls, the first thing boys do is look at what’s underneath. Undressing a doll is the same as a gal stripping down! Also, accurate body measurements require the thinnest of garments or nothing at all. CloverWorks, the animation studio for My Dress-Up Darling, loves the fanservice opportunities for Marin’s measurement scene. Jun Yamazaki, one of the Animation Directors, did Key Animation for Marin’s lithe body. Thank you, CloverWorks!
I liked one moment that showed the limits of Marin’s modesty. She accepted Gojou touching everywhere, even her nipples. She assuaged his modesty by measuring those points herself. But the situation of two teenagers, alone in a boy’s room, and her near-total nudity, became real when Gojou began to measure her inseam. A wispy bit of fabric blocked Gojou’s intense gaze of her purity. Marin’s flash of discomfort showed her realization that she could lose control of the situation. She saw Gojou squirm, but when he calmed down and presented a focused face, Marin started to squirm. Marin will become the shy, awkward one if Gojou keeps giving her that passionate look.
When last we left off in My Dress-Up Darling, Gojou needed Marin’s explanation of the god-tier eroge Slippery Girls. Gojou had no idea how self-insert harem games work. Also, humiliation play is key to Shizuku-tan’s character development. And if girls do shameful, indecent acts for love, it’s okay! Wait a minute, aren’t those h-games age-restricted? Lalalalala, Marin can’t hear Gojou-kun!
Gojou wants to help Marin, but he’s never made clothes for life-sized people before. Marin has reference materials! Ha! Good question! If that magazine made the instructions so easy, why does Marin need Gojou to make costumes for her? You can’t ask that! We wouldn’t have the story of My Dress-Up Darling if Marin could follow sewing instructions. Putting that aside, Gojou wants to start working with Marin after the weekend. Come on. Would a gal follow the directions from someone else? Gojou should expect surprises when a confident, pushy gal enters his life.
Surprise! You’re a boy who is home alone, and a hot girl walks right in. What do you do? Eat cheesecake is the correct answer! My Dress-Up Darling will give us many slices of cheesecake, I’m sure of it! Hoho! The first thing Marin does is look for Gojou’s porn stash. I mean, doll decorating tools. Yes, Gojou. Marin has blessed your room with cheesecake. Gojou couldn’t hear anything when the blood rushed away from his other head. Nice. They’re going to “do it.” Calm down. That’s just taking her measurements… in her underwear! Gojou can’t deal, but Marin has a solution.
Tada! She’s wearing a swimsuit underneath! Uh oh. That itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny bikini is not helping Gojou’s sanity. My Dress-Up Darling loves its fans. Wow! Hold on, Marin. Don’t touch Gojou yet. He needs a moment. Turning around doesn’t help either since Marin has a nosebleed-worthy collection of body parts. The booty bangs too hard for Gojou too. Slap! That nosebleed is not from overexcitement. Right? Gojou gets down to business.
Oh, does My Dress-Up Darling have foot fetish fans? Marin is here to help! Hahaha! Gojou can barely keep it together. A beautiful girl’s bare skin is touching his bed! Marin wants him to measure her feet. I like her persuasion techniques. Foot smushing mode: activate!
It’s booby time! Gojou’s heart is not ready. What’s the big deal? Marin sees those babies all the time! Gojou needs to concentrate, just like a reverse game of Operation. If Gojou touches Marin’s sides, his nose will shoot bright red. Oh, no. Gojou’s not done yet. My Dress-Up Darling shows us how detail-oriented costuming needs to be. Why, yes. I would also like to know where Marin’s “bust points” are. How funny. Marin thought it was natural to let a boy she had just met find her “points.” Unless Gojou turns the AC way up, or fingers, er, figures out another way to firm up their location, he would need to look at them! Marin bailed him out.
I like how Marin treated Gojou during his ordeal. It wasn’t an ordeal to her, though. She didn’t tease him about his shy reactions to her bare skin. Her neutrally friendly interactions with Gojou neatly set up her flash of embarrassment. My Dress-Up Darling presented a noteworthy moment of character development for Marin. What is she reacting to? Is it Gojou getting too close to her crotch, signaling her secret virgin status? Did she notice that Gojou can be handsome when he wears an intense look of concentration? Or did she realize how much trouble an almost-naked girl could have had with a boy alone in his room?
Ah, finally. Excellent job, Gojou! He endured until the end. Now, the essential digits of My Dress-Up Darling. Marin’s three sizes! BWH is 86.8 – 58.7 – 84.8. She’s a lean, mean, fanservice machine! Oh, right. Marin brought Gojou the reference material he needs to make Shizuku-tan’s costume. Just love it when a hot chick brings you porn. Ooh, we learned what Gojou likes. He gets more excited about Marin wearing a shirt over string panties! Good to know! Gojou is a man of culture too. No shame at all when he plays an eroge with no headphones. Work is work, after all!
