Fans of the Nakano quintuplets have had lots of reasons to celebrate lately: last month was the lovely sisters’ special birthday celebration, coupled with the announcement of a season 2 for the anime series. Now, we’re getting another good news: the Quintessential Quintuplets manga just reached the milestone of having 5 million copies in print! This was announced by the editorial team of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shounen Magazine’s official Twitter account.
The tweet, which you can read here, says that this milestone was largely due to a big jump in female readership of the manga. The tweet ends on a joke, saying that with this surge in female fans the staff are now hoping to meet real-life female quintuplets so that a live-action adaptation can be planned. Heh.
Quintessential Quintuplets (Go-Tobun no Hanayome) is a shounen manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It is currently being serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since August 2017 and has released nine tankobon volumes so far. An anime adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January 10 to March 28, 2019, with Crunchyroll and FUNimation holding the license for the series’ North American release.
The story revolves around Futaro Uesugi, a high school student who consistently has high grades but is down on every other aspect of his life: he has no friends, his father is saddled by many debts, and he has no mother. He can only do so much to make ends meet for him and his younger sister Raiha. Because of his intelligence the rich Nakano family hires him as a tutor to five girls—quintuplets who are cute, charming, but stubbornly hate studying. Fast-forward to the future, and Futaro is revealed to have ended up marrying one of the quintuplets. But with all five sisters falling in love with him during his time tutoring them, which sister does he actually end up with?
