The new season is officially titled Gotoubun no Hanayome  (I dunno how to read that okay).

A promotional video was also released for this announcement. Watch it here!

A new teaser visual was also released for the new season, which of course features our favorite quints.

The new season is now directed by Kaori (Yuyushiki, How to Keep a Mummy), replacing Satoshi Kuwabara. The series will now also be handled by Bibury Animation Studio (Azur Lane, Grisaia: Phantom Trigger), replacing Tezuka Productions. The series scripts, however, will still be handled by Keiichiro Ochi.

The second season will feature a returning cast: Kana Hanazawa (Ichika Nakano), Ayana Takesatsu (Nino Nakano), Miku Ito (Miku Nakano), Ayane Sakura (Yotsuba Nakano), and Inori Minase (Itsuki Nakano).

Quintessential Quintuplets is a shounen manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It is currently being serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine since August 2017 .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?
