Engrossed in the family business of traditional doll making, Wakana Gojou is a reserved high school freshman without friends. Harboring painful memories of a childhood friend's disdain toward his interest, Gojou cannot relate to his classmates and their pastimes, eventually isolating himself.

Gojou has yet to perfect his crafting of dolls' faces, but is exceptionally skilled at making their clothes. His finesse with the sewing machine is soon discovered by his beautiful classmate Marin Kitagawa, whose boldness and honesty Gojou both admires and envies. Instantly, she shares with Gojou her own hobby: she likes to cosplay as characters from erotic video games.

However, Kitagawa cannot sew her own costumes, leading her to seek Gojou's expertise. Now, as he is dragged along to the charming girl's endless cosplay-related affairs, Kitagawa becomes his first friend who fully accepts him. Thus, although polar opposites, their relationship slowly blossoms through their aptitude in helping each other in the intricate world of cosplay.

Funny, loveable characters, slow-ish development.

Take two polar opposites, an open, outgoing and stylish gyaru, and an easily flustered, shy, old-fashioned outsider who is into doll- and clothes-making. Even though they sound so extremely different, they click so incredibly well with each other, and I just love their interactions throughout the entire manga. The female lead goes against every stereotype of a gyaru, and does not show any restraint when it comes to showing what she likes, thus being able to completely nerd out over some things.

The manga takes some tangents when it comes to clothes and cosplay, so if you are absolutely not interested in read more

SPOILER WARNING for those watching the anime or not caught up with the manga.

Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (My Dress-Up Darling) is a series I had mixed feelings about. It started off strong but almost as if it were scared of commitment, it falls back to formula. After thinking over what happens (or doesn't happen) in the manga, I found under its pretty exterior very little worth and I thought less and less of 'Sono Bisque Doll.'

My main complaint with 'Sono Bisque Doll' is that it's not aware of what it wants to be. If it is aware then it fails to read more

Another nice addition to the recent trend of Gal/Gyaru manga I've been seeing recently. But I think Sono Bisque Doll has the best potential out of all of them so far with its unique premise. It is rare to see a manga talk in-depth about something like cosplay or dolls as much as Sono Bisque does. The art style is very pretty too, reminds me of Shojo manga in a nice way. Only complaint I have so far is that Gojou is a bit too apologetic/dense like other romcom MCs. Yet I still think Goujou's unique hobby and skill set definitely does set him apart read more

Somehow the most memorable part of this series is the way how Kotegawa (main gal) speaks. I don't even think there's a translation for the word I'm looking for but it's not typical japanese. It's more like 12 yo western girl who says lol after every sentence. If every shows adopted this style of speech for their characters I would hate it, but I haven't seen it anywhere else yet, so it actually feels nicely refreshing.

To be honest the fan service scenes was even more memorable and overall very natural and well done. Noiket l, oops I fell on you and now I'm on top read more
