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 anime its a harem at the core,but its kinda relatable if you but away the idea that its a harem.I love the characters especially Miku(for me its the best out of the quintuplets).The ,,quints'' are relatable,they represent a normal lads even though they are rich. The artstyle is stunning making it one of my favourite artstyles.It is full of emotions most of the anime.I still dont understand Futaros decision at the end of the anime(season 2+ movie),im sure you will question him too(or not).The story is kind of unique,yoou rarely see romance animes about quintuplets.Im 98% sure that you will fall in love with ...

An idea that would not occur to just anyone, although it is interesting, the truth is that I do not think they have done it in the best way. It is simple in its story, a high school boy needs money because he is poor, he gets involved as a tutor and gives himself He says that he has to teach a group of girls that they are sisters and quintuplets. The new or the strange will always be interesting to human beings, that is why this series will simply interest anyone, but will it really contribute something interesting? The answer is simpler than you ...

DISCLAIMER: This will be a review of exclusively season 1 content.

The Quintessential Quintuplets is a fantastic idea; for a different anime. As hard as it is to believe from the premise, 5 quirky, failing quintuplets all falling in love with their hard-ass tutor who's just there for the fat pay cheque is the synopsis of a love story that is supposed to be taken seriously. I went into The Quintessential Quintuplets under the impression that it'd be a comedy like Kaguya-sama or Konosuba, where the ridiculousness of the character writing is used to create amusingly absurd plotlines for each episode, instead, I get the ...
