Following limited theatrical screenings, there are now broadcast plans in place for The Quintessential Quintuplets~, the new side story special anime that opened in Japan on July 14. The TV version will air in two parts, starting with the first on September 2 and followed by the second on September 9.
The special will then play as one part on BS11 on September 10.
Yukihiro Miyamoto (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) directs The Quintessential Quintuplets~, with Keiichiro Ochi on the script and animation production handled at Shaft.
The series started out as a manga by Negi Haruba. The 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!
