How old is Marin Kitagawa in My Dress-Up Darling? Does she look older than her age?

When Marin Kitagawa first appears on the screen in My Dress-Up Darling she is flying through the air, only to smack her head on Gojou’s desk as she lands.

At that point in time while dressed in her school uniform, she looks like a typical high school girl, except she is much prettier than most, and obviously a gyaru.

When Marin begins to dress up in cosplay outfits, however, and especially when she cosplays as Black Lobelia and, even later, as Veronica and as Liz the Succubus, she looks quite a bit older.

But how old is Marin Kitagawa, and does she really look older than her age?

How old is My Dress-Up Darling‘s Marin?

When the anime series begins, Marin is 15-years-old. Her birthday is on March 5th.

That makes her just a couple of weeks older than Gojou, as he is also 15-years-old, but with a birthday on March 21st.

Marin is also two years younger than Juju, although she looks a lot older, but older than Juju’s sister Shinju. Although we never actually learn exactly how old Shinju is, just that she’s in middle school.

As for if Marin looks older than she is, no, not really.


Not when you see her wearing a sweat shirt and a t-shirt while watching a movie, or when wearing her school uniform, she looks like she’s 15-years-old.

It is only when she cosplays, or when she is in full make-up for fashion shoots she sometimes does as an amateur model, she looks like she is 18 or 19-years-old.

Overall, though, both Marin and Gojou look their age. Except very very pretty versions of their age, eh?
