Manga launched in 2017, inspired anime in January with planned 2nd season

Manga creator Negi Haruba revealed on Wednesday that The Quintessential Quintuplets (Gotōbun no Hanayome) manga will end in its 14th volume. Haruba added that they had been excited about drawing a manga that would "go on and on" before serializing The Quintessential Quintuplets, but found it to be hard to do so once the serialization began, noting that manga creators who can continue a manga for dozens of volumes are "awesome."

Kodansha Comics is releasing the 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 12th compiled book volume in Japan on November 15. Kodansha Comics published the manga's sixth volume in English on November 5.

The manga inspired a television anime that premiered on January 10 earlier this year for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation offered an English dub. A second season has been green-lit.
