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 series in February 2020.

The new season was originally scheduled to premiere in October 2020 but was delayed due to COVID-19. The anime featured a returning cast.
Eiga Gotōbun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets the Movie) sequel anime film will open on May 20. The film will serve as the finale for the story. The film's runtime will exceed 130 minutes.
