Manga creator Negi Haruba announced on Twitter on Wednesday that his 5-toubun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets) manga series will end with the 14th volume.

Synopsis
Considered a genius, high schooler Fuutarou Uesugi excels at studying and obtains a perfect score on every test. Due to his intense focus on that regard, he is a reclusive person with no friends. Additionally, he lives in a tight financial state as a result of family debts.

Fuutarou's mundane lifestyle is interrupted when Itsuki Nakano, a new transfer student, contests him for his usual lunch seat. After a short altercation, Fuutarou emerges victorious by insulting Itsuki's eating habits, which angers her enough to leave. However, when Fuutarou learns that he has been offered the private tutor position of a wealthy family's academically hopeless daughters, he immediately regrets his prior encounter. It turns out that the beneficiaries of his tutoring are none other than Itsuki and her four identical siblings: the shy Miku, the cheerful Yotsuba, the devious Nino, and the mature Ichika!

Teaching these quintuplets may prove more difficult for Fuutarou than he initially expected, as the last thing they want to do is seriously study. Now, Fuutarou must face the various challenges of tutoring five beautiful yet eccentric girls. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Haruba originally published the romantic comedy series as a one-shot in Weekly Shounen Magazine in January 2017. Regular serialization of the manga began in August 2017. Kodansha published the 12th volume on November 15 (pictured). 5-toubun no Hanayome has a cumulative 8.6 million copies of its volumes in print.

The manga inspired a 12-episode TV anime adaptation this January by Tezuka Productions, which was simulcast by Crunchyroll. Funimation also streamed an English dub. A second season is currently in production.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in 2018 for both digital and physical release. The tenth e-book volume and the fifth physical volume went on sale on September 17 and November 5, respectively.

It's surprising Shonen Magazine allowed this to end so soon. With nanatsu no taizai nearing its end too, they'll lose 2 big pillars.

Nasty feeling that the ending will piss off plenty of fans given the inconsistencies the story has had thus far but I’m hoping for the very best nonetheless!

Looking forward to the finale!

So the manga is almost finished, huh? I wonder if this means that the second season of the anime will be the last.

Come to think of it, I've only read the first chapter so far.

I would have loved it to drag on maybe 200 or more ch and have an open ending instead of choosing anyone that would have been better than to see my girls crying.

Why is everyone is so pissed about yotsuba?? It’s still unknown if she will be the winner. It could be that fuutarou just visited the girls room one by one. And, if Yotsuba is the winner, doesn’t mean that Negi disrespected the other girls. I mean, she IS the girl that fuutarou’s meet when they’re child, and then she supported the other girls with fuutarou. Last, everyone deserves to be the winner, they all struggles so much and y’all said that one girl doesn’t deserves to be the winner.

Yup, agreed. Then again, i'm curious to see who will Fuutarou end up with. I know im gonna feel sad by the end anyway because i sympathise with all the girls so far. xD have to catch up to the most recent manga chapters.

If he makes Yotsuba win over Nino and Miku (who put in more work to develop as characters and had bigger moments in the manga), it'd be pretty cliche and would fulfill both the "first girl" and "childhood friend" tropes since she met him first before the other quints. At this point if Yotsuba is the endgame, I'm gonna stop reading harem manga's entirely because it's the same shit each time. Author writes better FMC leads that bring in support for the manga, has MC end up hooking with a different girl with less favoritism, and then rinse and repeat for other series.

Yotsuba is a fine character, but no way in hell does she deserve to win over Miku and Nino. They had bigger moments in the manga that made the series popular to begin with, and then we find ourselves back to old tropes that just won't stop being used

This series literally went out of its way to get rid of a lot of harem tropes. And for most of the story, you didn't even know that she was the first girl Itsuki was and that would have been the worst choice if Itsuki one witch he was teasing for most of the manga. Yotsuba earned her place came in clutch and had the most effect on Futarro himself, not just self-betterment. Just because a character puts in a lot of effort that doesn't mean he has to reciprocate. It seems to me that your just agnry the girls you would have picked didn't win and that seems a little shallow. And this is coming from a huge Nino Suporter

Did she? Most of her development was rushed/crammed in after chapter 90 when she was revealed to be Rena. Nino, Miku, and Itsuki at least had more natural development and even most Yotsuba fans were surprised by her win because they knew she had the least amount of actual development. And compared to Miku and Nino, she wasn't that close to them in terms of popularity really from what I saw.

I'm just gonna give up at harems and romances if Yotsuba really does win, because she's two tropes wrapped into one character and even other fans are noticing it

Look at that salty fonboy lol. It ıs ok to be hate Yotsuba end . It is your choice after all. But you cant call it "cliche".It is rare to find genki childhood friend who wins in harem manga. Negi broke the rule “Childhood friend is destined to lose.”

shes not first girl. Thats not how the trope works.Itsuki first girl.

Also Yots is the one who support MC most. She was always there for help him from the beginning, not Nino , not Miku.She did her best for his happinies. She changed him(in a good way).She truly deserved happiness.

Nobody gonna love you because you PuT İt İn EFfoRt.
She is pretty popular to.Check out last poll(best moments)

I hope Negi let them be happy.I love all the quints.Feels bad Nino and İchika to :/

So we're gonna rule out Hinata as a childhood friend? Because I'm pretty sure she was, since they both knew eachother when they were younger

I'm not the only one saying Yotsuba also plays on the first girl trope either, others on the manga websites have pointed this out too. People are just tired of those tropes when it applies to the not so favorite candidate. I still like her, but not as the winner

We will have to wait, I think. Because he has been suffering from burnout syndrome as evident from some his interviews (like he admires mangaka with long running publications etc.), something that led to many mangaka lose their health or stop being mangaka altogether. You will also notice that the later chapters were rushed and the drawing quality dropped here and there.

It's the nature of the job and the demand it makes on the individual's body.

WSM will lose a lot of grounds it made to catch up with WSJ's circulations since GoToubun became popular.

True she is not the First girl, as she never had any of the benefits that come with that title unlike Itsuki.
But you cant label her as a childhood friend either since she only met him 1 time in the past, and in the same day he also play with Ichika so...

Well i dont like it cuz he said that he loves all of them just 3 days ago, but now he decided on Yotsuba all of a suden.

Well i am still interested about what he said to the other 4 before he went to Yotsubas room, maybe Negi can fix this ending so that every one can support yotsuba if she the bride in the end.

Btw for me its
1# Miku, Nino, Ichika and Yotsuba
2# Itsuki
So i have nothing against Yotsuba being the bride, just the way it was handeld

I am fine with any of the sisters winning as long as it is not Itsuki. She fits the typical winning heroine cliches to the max, so any other ending will be fine. I just tired of authors chooseing this stereotype for the main girl.

Well it was pretty good until chapter 100. Kinda felt it was dragging a bit with very little progression. But yeah kinda best to end it right here similar to Boarding School Juliet before it gets stale and uninteresting.
