Considered a genius, high school student Fuutarou Uesugi excels at studying and obtains a perfect score on every test. Due to his intense focus in 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.

Overall, I think this manga had some very good points. I think my only problem I had with it was the ending. There weren't any things I found insufferable (apart from Ichika) and I was hooked on this manga. I think I read the whole thing in 5 hours or something because I wanted to know how it ended

Was that worth it? Yes, because I enjoyed my time, but also no, because I hated the ending. I've never seen a manga apart from this one where I needed doujins (the non-sexual kind of course) to get a better ending. The ending itself isn't poorly crafted. ...

Mixed Feelings
Great writing and charming characters but it can't quite live up to the premise of five equal love interests and suffers from a very rushed ending. Mixed Recommendation

Story: 6/10
Well paced for the first ~80%. There's a long section at the start where there's little to no romcom shenanigans and I wish more manga slowed down at the start to give us a chance to get to know the characters outside of a romantic context.

The author gave themselves herculean task trying to develop six distinct main characters (the sisters + Uesugi) and, for the most part, they manage to pull it off. They manage to portion ...

"They had us in the first half, not gonna lie" is a sentence that could perfectly describe the writing of 5-toubun no Hanayome. For the first 90 chapters, the manga was pretty good. It had some flaws obviously, but was very enjoyable and promised a great future.

But then, the festival arc came, and it only went down from here.

Also, massive spoilers ahead, you know the deal.

For the first half of the manga, I think we can all agree that it was pretty enjoyable. We were promised an ending immediatly, and we had to figure out what girl was going to marry Fuutarou based on the ...
