5 Toubun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets) is a romantic comedy manga written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. The manga began in 2017 and ran for a total of 14 volumes, finishing in early 2020. The series was published by Kodansha under their Weekly Shonen Magazine. The series received a TV anime adaptation in the Winter 2019/2020 anime season, being directed by Satoshi Kuwahara (5-toubun no Hanayome, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) and produced by Tezuka Productions (Black Jack, Sakamichi no Apollon). A video game adaptation of 5 Toubun no Hanayome was released for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in March 2021.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
Fuutarou Uesugi is an ace high school student, but leads an otherwise tough life. His standoffish personality and reclusive nature have left him friendless, and his father is debt-ridden, forcing his family to scrape by.
One day during his lunch break, Uesugi argues with a female transfer student who has claimed “his seat,” leading both of them to dislike each other. That same day, he is presented with a golden opportunity to clear his family’s debt: a private tutoring gig for a wealthy family’s daughter, with a wage of five times the market price. He accepts the proposal, but is horrified to discover that the client, Itsuki Nakano, is the girl he confronted earlier!
After unsuccessfully trying to get back on Itsuki’s good side, Uesugi finds out that his problems don’t end there: Itsuki is actually a quintuplet, so in addition to her, he must also tutor her sisters—Miku, Yotsuba, Nino, and Ichika—who, despite the very real threat of flunking, want nothing to do with a tutor. However, his family’s livelihood is on the line so Uesugi pushes on, adamant in his resolve to rid the sisters of their detest for studying and successfully lead them to graduation.
A sequel film to the 5 Toubun no Hanayome anime has been announced for a 2022 release.
