The production of the animated franchise of Gotoubun no Hanayome (The quintessential quintuplets) posted a special music video commemorating the conclusion of the franchise. The video condenses the most important scenes of the two seasons of the anime and the film and reconfirms that the Blu-ray/DVD version of the film will be released in Japan on December 21st.

On the other hand, Negi Haruba published the manga in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine from the publisher Kodansha between August 2017 and February 2020 with a total of fourteen compilation volumes. The work inspired two seasons of anime and a film that ended the story. The play inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions and released in winter 2019 (January-March), followed by a second season in winter 2021 (January-March) and a film in May 2022, both produced by Bibury Animation Studios.

Synopsis for Gotoubun no Hanayome

Fuutarou Uesugi is an excellent high school student, but he leads a difficult life. His distant personality and solitary nature have left him friendless, and his father is in debt, forcing his family to struggle to survive. One day, during his lunch break, Uesugi argues with an exchange student who has "claimed her place", resulting in the two disliking each other. On the same day, he has a unique opportunity to pay off his family's debts: a job as a private tutor for the daughter of a wealthy family, with a salary five times the market price. He accepts the proposal, but is horrified to find that the customer, Itsuki Nakano, is the girl he met before!

After unsuccessfully trying to get Itsuki's approval, Uesugi discovers that his problems don't end there: Itsuki is actually a quintuplet, so in addition to her, he must also tutor her sisters: Miku, Yotsuba, Nino, and Ichika. “That despite the very real risk of failure, they don't want anything to do with a tutor. However, his family's livelihood is at stake, so Uesugi presses on, unwavering in his determination to rid the sisters of their hatred of college and lead them to successful graduation.
