Masamune Okumura is the president of his school’s manga club and the only member as well. His fixation on 2D characters leads to a lack of acknowledgment for the 3D females around him. Until Lilysa Amano joins the club. Both Lilysa and Masamune share the same favorite character, Liliel. On top of it all, Lilysa is a cosplayer and her cosplays are downright ecchi. 

Lilysa appoints Masamune as her photographer and that’s how the story starts. Her dream to become a professional cosplayer leads to a genuine and consistent progression in the storyline. The characters are also explored as the story goes on. Although the fan service can be a bit heavy in the beginning.

2.5D Seduction takes time to define itself but as the story progresses it becomes more polished. Besides cosplaying, other aspects related to it are also dealt with in the manga like photography. It can be said that the manga blossoms into something more concrete and well-written later on. As it does a phenomenal job of exploring the themes and characters.

The ecchi elements in the manga might come off too strong in the beginning. This makes it a bit exclusive to those who enjoy or at least don’t mind anime fan service. Nonetheless, it can be educational and entertaining whenever it wants.

My Dress-up Darling rose to mainstream heights and has established itself as a cosplay manga. When 2.5D Seduction comes out, both anime will be compared to one another and to an extent fairly so. It is one of those series that takes some time to settle into a proper form. And once it does, it manages to give you entertainment and satisfaction like no other. This also makes it a tricky story for an anime adaptation. 

The anime team already has all the context they need as the manga has more than 100 chapters. As long as they capture the essence and intricacies of 2.5D Seduction, fans will be more than eager to be a part of this dress-up expedition.
