Kodansha Comics publishes series digitally in English

This year's combined 36th and 37th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine announced on Wednesday that Negi Haruba's The Quintessential Quintuplets (Gotōbun no Hanayome) manga will get a television anime adaptation on TBS in 2019. An official website for the anime opened and revealed the first teaser visual.

A Twitter account for the anime opened in July.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the series digitally first, and the second volume launched on July 24. The company describes the story:

One day, a poor high school second-year named Futaro Uesugi comes across a private tutoring gig with good pay. But his pupils are his classmates!! And they're quintuplets!! A-and they're all gorgeous girls, but they're also troublemakers who hate to study and are on the verge of flunking out! And his first task is simply gaining the sisters' trust?! Every day is a party! The curtain is rising on the Nakano quintuplets' quirky romantic comedy with five times the cute!!

The manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Magazine on August 9, 2017, and Kodansha shipped the fifth compiled volume on July 17. The series has more than 700,000 copies in print.

Update: Visual and release date added.
