The Quintessential Quintuplets Anime Celebrates 5th Anniversary in Animated Video

the quintessential quintuplets

The first season of The Quintessential Quintuplets anime adaptation aired in January 2019, so 2024 marks the series’ fifth anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, the TBS Anime YouTube channel shared an animated video, complete with new voice lines from the main cast members. 

The video also covers the first of five events planned for 2024, starting with an anniversary exhibition that’s currently running until January 21. That will be followed by a two-day anniversary event in Yokohama Arena, with day one set for April 27 with a film concert screening. The cast will be on hand for a talk event on day two.

The series started out as a manga by Negi Haruba, and most recently inspired a side story anime. The main TV anime streams on Crunchyroll and the manga is published in America by Kodansha USA, who gave this description for the series:

A high school romantic comedy with five times the cute girls! A high school boy must work part-time to help five sisters study so they can graduate, but the only thing these quintuplets have in common is that they all hate studying!

Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: a high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?! At this rate, the sisters won’t graduate, so if he wants to get paid, Futaro must think of a plan to suit each of them … Which feels hopeless when five out of five of them think he’s a loser!
