The Quintessential Quintuplets movie (Eiga Gotoubun no Hanayome) has received its third key visual, which depicts the Nakano sisters with blooming cherry blossoms in the background. The movie is set to premiere in Japan on May 20.
The movie’s plot will involve Uesugi facing a series of troubles and the reappearance of his first love, the girl in the photograph, as he tries to tutor the titular quintuplets.
The Quintessential Quintuplets is based on the manga by Negi Haruba, which began in 2017 and ended in 2020 with 14 tankoubon volumes. Crunchyroll describes the anime as:
Uesugi Fuutarou, a high school second-year from a poor family, receives a highly appealing offer to work part-time as a tutor… but his students turn out to be girls from his own class! What’s more, they’re quintuplets… and all five are beautiful, but happen to be problem students who have borderline grades and hate studying! Looks like his first assignment will be to win all the sisters’ trust?! Every day is a wild party in this rom-com centering around the quintuplet sisters of the Nakano household!
