I've read the manga since the beginning and I'm satisfied on how the first episode is animated.


This is also the only romance+harem manga/anime that I want every girl to win because they're all just great in their own way.

Waifu, waifus everywhere. Honestly im on the fence so far who's best girl I need a few more episodes to decide. Does he chose a girl or is this going the true harem route? In on board for both btw

They already displayed it on beginning and ending of episode that he just will mary one girl. Who she is, we don't know yet because they're quintuplets

I was gonna check it out, but after finding out Matsuoka is voicing the guy, I can't.
His voice over and over again in every anime ruins it for me

Sigh, again read the whole avaible manga afer the first episode. I really need to stop doing that. Manga is rather uneven but enjoyable, anime doesn't look very promising (probably will end up as the usual mediocre manga advertisement) and Hanazawa got a really weird casting. Maybe it will be interesting to her outside the usual roles.

Well, at least after a few chapters I already knew who the best girl is.

Oh ye, also funny how anime turned Yotsuba into Shimakaze.

Hmm the mc sure is good at money management. The OP and the visuals that go with it was pretty cute. Itsuki and Yotsuba's personalities sure are total opposites of each other. So instead of simply acting as the tutor for Itsuki Fuutarou is now the tutor for all of the sisters then lol. Man seems that the sisters impressions of Fuutarou was not a good one at all. These girls though sure are rather determined to not study though. But drugged cookies huh thats pretty creative of Nino. Its nice that Itsuki was able to understand Fuutarou's circumstances and while not quite agreeing with him yet is at least willing to allow him to try. A solid first ep that did well in introducing the mc and the five sisters and their unique personalities. Looking forward to see how Fuutarou will deal with them.

I read the first chapter of this a while back and dropped it. Giving the anime a shot hasn't change my impression at all.

Its another shameless pandering harem series that feeds on people's obsession with cUtE aNimu giRLs and gets them attached to a particular waifu in hopes of them buying into the whole "shipping wars" shit.

It seems that people like it over other harems because it supposedly becomes a good character drama as it goes on. Thats nice and all, but at the end of the day, its still self-indulgent wish fulfillment with a teen guy surrounded by a bunch of hot girls who will slowly grow fond and develop feelings for him as the series goes on. Oh, and throw in lots of ecchi and accidental pervert situations to get the audience going. Also gotta make sure the camera angles linger juuuuust long enough on their ass and tiddies. Don't forget the ever so slight boob jiggle physics too.

Yeah... whatever.

Oh,look... Matsuoka is the voice behind the male MC...again... for the 1480412948014284018443rd time (not a bad thing tho)

Looking forward to the next episode - this could turn out to be one of the better Harem-Anime

Pretty decent first episode, really liked the seiyuu choices aside Matsouka, OP song and visuals.

As expected Futarou carried the 1st episode and man seeing best girls Miku and Nino animated was pretty great too. Really looking forward to more.

Wise choice. You can still watch anime after reading manga. Infact it will make you even more excited.

Wow, I mean I know you said that you only read the first chapter, but still wow. This is the pinnacle of a person making a lot of assumptions on the subject matter.

First off, "feeds on people's obsession with cUtE aNimu giRLs and gets them attached to a particular waifu in hopes of them buying into the whole "shipping wars" shit."

This is wrong why exactly? If anything, this should be the ultimate goal for all harem series. It is a legitimate method to get people invested in the characters and the series itself. You may only be focusing on all the shallow ways certain series attempt this, but some series can create well-written characters and the same result will still happen. Like most things, going overboard with the shipping wars is terrible, but they themselves are not a problem. For Gotoubun no Hanayome, the shipping wars are mainly contained within the fandom and it nothing more than a giant meme for the fans. Things like the Miku Church and the Nino Gang are just ways they have fun with each other.

Secondly, "its still self-indulgent wish fulfillment with a teen guy surrounded by a bunch of hot girls who will slowly grow fond and develop feelings for him as the series goes on."

Once again, what is wrong here? You're trying to give criticism by simply describing the situation at hand. What you described in the second half of your sentence is the premise for all harem series. Is there something inherently wrong with self-indulgent and wish fulfillment stories? No. But are there wrong ways to execute self-indulgent and wish fulfillment stories? Yes. You're trying to dismiss the praises that people have for the series, but you're not doing great at it.

Lastly. "Oh, and throw in lots of ecchi and accidental pervert situations to get the audience going. Also gotta make sure the camera angles linger juuuuust long enough on their ass and tiddies. Don't forget the ever so slight boob jiggle physics too."

Just going through episode 1, I counted a grand total of (drum rolls) 2 blatant fanservice scenes, 1 badly phrased sentence that went nowhere, barely any boob jiggle (despite me staring at them the entire time cause subs), and 1(?) accidental pervert situation. That last one is debatable cause usually those kinds of situations involve the MC slipping on air and landing in-between a girl's legs. Here, it is an accident, but it's a hell of lot more plausible. The camera pans are stretch and their butts weren't even emphasized. Their breasts were and it's not series's fault, it's just the anime emphasizing them more. Let's not forget, just because a series doesn't have an ecchi tag doesn't mean it can't have a bit of fanservice from time to time and this series doesn't have a lot.

It's pretty obvious that you hate the harem genre and this is just a guess, but I think that hatred prevented you from ever giving this series the slightest bit of a chance and won't let you at least acknowledged why people consider this series to be good. I may be wrong, but only you know.

A decent start. Only problem with harem anime/manga is in almost everyone I have watched the protagonist ends up with the main girl.

Ichigo 100% may be the exception, although she probably had probably replaced the initial main girl as the main one for a fair while before they ended up together.

That's... kinda bad to assume the intent of the series but also the people that are watching it. Coming from the person that has read a few more chapters of the manga, while yeah there can be a moment where people will be attached to a particular waifu, honestly this is the type of harem that more so just lets everyone grow on their own pace, and from what I've read I like everyone of the girls in there.

Also, based on your own word by interpretation, even if it has positives, it's still a self-indulging series? That... doesn't make sense.

Wouldn't that be less of a self-indulging series and more of a series that's meaningful to some extent or a show that can stand away from the crowd without the reliance? Most people interpret the positives as not a self-indulging anime.

Though I believe self-fufilling anime aren't inherently a bad thing unless it pushes it down people's throats up the ass to no end. Which... isn't really what Gotoubun did over here.

It was a good first episode.

It seems like this is going to be the harem of the season. I haven't read the manga, but I've heard lots of good things about it. The characters seem very likable, so far. I'm interested in seeing how this plays out.

A harem with five cute, stacked girls, is this heaven?

Fun first episode, the premise reminds me a lot to BokuBen lol, I like the protagonist and the girls seem that will be a lot of fun, let the best girl fights start.

Doesn't the marriage scene hints Itsuki is the end game?I know that in the manga they all have same hair colour but the anime seems to hint Itsuki.

Any manga reader can clarify me?

This was actually quite a nice setup honestly. MC doesn't look dense and I don't see a tsundere anywhere (they lengthen every single thing, like a lot). Probably going to be one of the better harem series

a(x-a)(x-B) = a(x^2-Bx-ax+aB) = ax^2+a(-B-a)x+a^2B = ax^2+bx+c

c = a^2b

Did they actually spoiled the ending in the first scene?
In a action anime or so i would understand that but in a Harem,romance,comedy i think its just ruining the show but maybe i am just misundertanding the first scene at least i hope so because that could possibly be one of the better Harem shows with not a complete Character less Protagonist and holy shit just look at the cast all tho girls got the top of the top voice actors....

They didn't spoil anything, bride's identity isn't confirmed, only speculated. Flashforwards happened at least 3 times.

Good first episode!

Quintuplets with varying personalities and a main character whose family is under debt but doesn’t seem too dense, somewhat interesting so far. Uesugi’s little sister is sweet as an angel and seems like she’s done the trick for her elder brother, lol that was nice to see. Revelation scene of the sisters was hilarious but not too many other notable scenes from the episode. Final moments of the episode suggests that he’ll end up marrying one of the redheads so probably either between Itsuki and Nino, I supoose.

To be fairly honest, the voice acting of the show, thanks to the wonderful cast behind the show, is what caught my attention in the first place(as I’m not really a fan of Harem shows) and I’m honestly glad to see that this was undoubtedly top tier. Animation was very pleasing too with the colorful presentation and the Character designs were pretty fine. Op and ED are nothing memorable but nice to listen to, I suppose. It’s been a fairly enjoyable first episode too, so I’ll probably keep an eye at this for another 2-3 episodes before deciding to keep up with or dropping it.

Awesome first episode, it was interesting and funny to watch!

All girls are likable, beautifulls as well, looking forward see more about them! But at first view, Itsuka and Miku are the ones i liked more!

Raiha is adorable as hell!

Curious to see how he will teach them!

Ep. was good, but, ugh Matsuoka, ugh his voice doesn't fit Uesugi at all, and I hoped that Miku seiyuu voice would be a bit lower, but that just my little complaints.
