8 thoughts on “A review of My Dress-Up Darling (Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru)

  1. This is on my “watch next” list. My son told me the Manga was really good and it would be worth a watch. Now, I’m even more excited to check it out. Great review!

    (On another note, I saw a really good artist rendering of Pomu cosplaying Marin.)

    • Thanks! I think you’ll like this one, yeah. I might have to check on the manga now, especially if that second season is a long way off.

      I’ll check out that Pomu as Marin art too for sure. I can see it, especially since they look pretty similar, and Pomu’s into cosplay and a lot of that niche stuff too. It’s a great fit!

  2. I love this review! You were even able to put into words why I liked the fan service in this even though I dislike it in others.

    Just like Yuru Camp, this is another story that gives insight to a niche subject. I think there’s an art into making those stuff interesting for people who have zero knowledge about it. There’s a lot of details there that made me feel like I actually learned something.

    I was pleasantly surprised that you mentioned Highway Blossoms too. I’ve never heard anyone else talk about it. I’m definitely gonna read your post about some time.

    • Thanks! Taking apart why fanservice sometimes works for me and sometimes doesn’t can be interesting. Seems like a lot of people draw that line in different places. Sono Bisque Doll did give some nice insight into the cosplay hobby as well.

      I wasn’t too hot on Highway Blossoms as I mentioned, but there were some things I liked about it too, yeah. Check it out for sure. I’ve reviewed a few visual novels; wish I could get to more but because of my schedule in part I’ve stalled out badly on them.

      • Btw, you were wondering about the “bisque” part of the title. A “Bisque Doll” is actually a porcelain doll. So the title is basically referring to Marin as a porcelain doll.

      • Thanks for the clarification — I’d never heard the term “bisque doll” before, so that makes a lot of sense. I was thinking more of lobster bisque, or maybe I was just hungry considering the other food analogies in the review.
