Quintessential Quintuplets

The upcoming anime film The Quintessential Quintuplets the Movie will open in Japanese theaters on May 20th.

The Quintessential Quintuplets began as a manga which ran from 2017 before finishing 2020. An anime was produced based on the manga in 2019. The series follows a young man who’s hired to tutor the five young daughters of a wealthy family, only to learn they’re five identical siblings that go to his school!

You can find the latest trailer for the film below.

You can read a summary of the series from MyAnimeList below.

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.

The movie will follow the events of the anime’s second season which ran in Winter of 2021. At the time of publishing, an English release has yet to be announced.
