Synopsis of Gotoubun no Hanayome

Fuutarou Uesugi is an excellent student, but his life is difficult. His distant personality and lonely nature have left him without friends, and his father is in debt, forcing his family to struggle for survival. One day, during her lunch break, Uesugi argues with a transfer student who has claimed “her place”, which leads to the two not liking each other. On the same day, he is given the unique opportunity to pay off his family's debts: private tuition for the daughter of a wealthy family with a salary five times the market price. He accepts the suggestion but is horrified to find out that the customer Itsuki Nakano is the girl he was previously confronted with!

After trying unsuccessfully to get Itsuki's approval, Uesugi discovers that his problems don't end there: Itsuki is actually a quintuple, so in addition to her she has to teach her sisters: Miku, Yotsuba, Nino and Ichika. "That despite the very real risk of failure, they don't want to have anything to do with a tutor." His family's livelihoods are at stake, however, and Uesugi is determined to rid the sisters of his hatred of studies and successfully graduate them.
