Kodansha Comics is releasing Negi Haruba's 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 Haruba ended the manga in the 12th issue on February 19.

The anime is inspiring Gotōbun no Hanayome Itsutsugo-chan wa Puzzle o Gotōbun Dekinai, its first smartphone game, for iOS and Android this year.
