The Quintessential Quintuplets~ TV special will debut on Japanese TV in September with a two-part release. Part 1 will premiere on September 2 at 4.30 PM JST while Part 2 will follow on September 9 (also 4.30 PM JST).

The special initially premiered in Japanese theaters on July 14 for a three-week limited run. It depicts vignettes that weren’t shown in The Quintessential Quintuplets anime seasons and movie. The opening song sequence was released last week.

The Quintessential Quintuplets~ is produced by Shaft, which provided production assistance for the 11th episode of The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 1, with Yukihiro Miyamoto (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story Season 2 -The Eve of Awakening-Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story Final Season -Dawn of a Shallow Dream-) as director. Other main staff include Keiichirou Oochi (The Quintessential Quintuplets 2) as series composer, Masato Katsumata (The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 and movie) and Kazuya Shiotsuki (Luminous Witches) as character designers, and Hanae Nakamura (returning) and Miki Sakurai (returning) as music composers.

The Quintessential Quintuplets anime are based on the Kodansha-published manga by Negi Haruba that began serialization in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2017 and ended in 2020 with 14 tankoubon volumes. Kodansha USA describes the manga as:

Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: a high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?! At this rate, the sisters won’t graduate, so if he wants to get paid, Futaro must think of a plan to suit each of them … Which feels hopeless when five out of five of them think he’s a loser!

The first season of the anime aired in 2019 with Satoshi Kuwabara as director and Tezuka Productions as the animation production company, while the second season aired in 2021 with Kaori as director and Bibury Animation Studios producing. The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie, which was also produced by Bibury, premiered in Japan in May 2022. Masato Jinbo (Restaurant to Another World 2) directed the movie with Oochi as scriptwriter and Masato Katsumata (The Quintessential Quintuplets 2) as character designer. 

The main cast includes:

• Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Uesugi Futaro
 Kana Hanazawa as Ichika Nakano
• Ayana Taketatsu as Nino Nakano
• Miku Itou as Miku Nakano
• Ayane Sakura as Yotsuba Nakano
