1st 12-episode season premiered in January

The special event for the anime based on Negi Haruba's The Quintessential Quintuplets (Gotōbun no Hanayome) manga revealed on Sunday that the anime will get a second season.

The first anime premiered on January 10, and aired for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation offered an English dub.

Satoshi Kuwabara (Dagashi Kashi 2, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) directed the series at Tezuka Productions (Dagashi Kashi 2, Black Jack). Keiichirō Ōchi (Hinamatsuri, La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky) was in charge of series composition, and Michinosuke Nakamura (Hajime no Ippo Rising, Kids on the Slope) and Miyabi Uta designed the characters. Natsumi Tabuchi (Castle Town Dandelion, Clockwork Planet), Hanae Nakamura (Clockwork Planet, Convenience Store Boy Friends), and Miki Sakurai composed the music.

The main female cast members Kana Hanazawa, Ayana Taketatsu, Miku Itō, Ayane Sakura, and Inori Minase performed the opening theme song, while Aya Uchida performed the ending theme song.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the original manga digitally and in print, and it 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 Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in August 2017, and Kodansha published the manga's ninth volume in Japan on April 17.
