The Quintessential Quintuplets Lands Novel SeriesThe Quintessential Quintuplets, everyone’s favorite manga and anime about five red-headed sisters, is coming to the world of text.

The franchise will be adapted into a series of novels, the first of which is set for March 31. Time will tell if these novels are a straight-up adaptation of the manga, or will add fresh details about Futaro and his pupils.

Negi Haruba’s Quintessential Quintuplets manga ran from 2017 to 2020, and the anime had two seasons. A film sequel is set for May 20.

Here’s how Kodansha Comics describes the original manga:

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!!

Time to beef up on those Japanese reading skills!
