Wakana Gojo is the main character in the anime series My Dress-up Darling. In one episode, Gojo is asked by her friend Kitagawa Marin to make a complicated cosplay outfit. Marin’s request causes Gojo to feel stressed and pressured, but she doesn’t want to disappoint her trusted friend. Therefore, Gojo works hard until Marin’s cosplay outfit is complete.
In reality, the cosplay outfit didn’t need to be completed as quickly as Gojo perceived. Marin only mentioned that there would be a cosplay event in the near future, and Gojo misunderstood that it would be held soon. However, Gojo finishes making the outfit in record time, despite simultaneously studying for school exams, taking care of her grandfather who was hospitalized, making hina dolls, and serving doll tours for customers.
When the cosplay outfit is finished, Gojo quickly tells Marin, who comes over to try it on. Marin is surprised and thankful to see that the outfit is complete. She tells Gojo that it wasn’t necessary to finish it so quickly, but she appreciates Gojo’s hard work nonetheless.
Marin’s happiness in trying on the cosplay outfit makes all of Gojo’s hard work worth it. Marin’s presence in Gojo’s life has a positive impact on her, as she introduces Gojo to the world of cosplay and shows her beautiful things in life that she has never experienced before.
Marin is the first female friend that Gojo has ever had. She invites Gojo to the beach, a place that Gojo has never visited before because she was always busy making hina dolls. Without Marin, Gojo may never have had these experiences.
In the end, Gojo’s hard work pays off. Not only is Marin impressed with her work, but the two become closer because of it. Through the ups and downs, Gojo’s dedication to making Marin’s cosplay outfit is a testament to their friendship and the value of hard work.
