What is the plotline of The Quintessential Quintuplets?
Futaro Uesugi, a successful high school student, also lives a difficult life. His father struggles with a great debt, his mother is dead, and he has no friends. Things will change when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school. Futaro is immediately hired as a highly paid teacher.

Will there be a third season of the anime?
The anime’s second season came under the title “The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬“. According to the announcement made on April 18, 2021, Anime is now renewed for a sequel. This news, which was thought to be the third season before, actually pointed to a movie. Although this news pleased some fans, the lack of news for a third season, for now, upset some fans. If the expectations are met with the film, a third season can meet with the audience in the following years. The teaser at the end of our article was shared for the sequel movie. We see sisters dressed in bridal gowns, and the slogan “I was dreaming – I met you, the dream of that dreamy day” comes out. It is known that the movie will be released in 2022.
We attribute the anime’s order for a sequel to its current popularity. About 500k people on Twitter follow the anime’s page. In addition, when we look at the disc sales of the previous season, we see that it remained above the targets. This shows that the anime is enjoying serious popularity in Japan. According to our calculation, the anime’s popularity score is 89.5%, and it shows that it has serious popularity. It is actively talked about on social media and has a high search volume on google. Besides, the squad of the series has a circulation of 14.5m. In this case, a new season confirmation is no surprise. Also, a game of the series was released for PS4 and Switch recently.
- The last update on May 16, 2021: The anime’s second season disc sales figures have been announced. Anime will sell 5 volume discs and the first two volumes of them have been realized. The anime, which sold 3493 units in the first volume, sold 3950 in the second volume. Although disc sales have declined in recent years, it is good data to see the popularity in Japan. Anime ranks 7th among more than 30 anime that are on sale during the winter season.
How many seasons can anime be in total?
How many seasons the anime will depend directly on the manga. Since the anime is adapted from manga, enough source material determines how many seasons the series can be. The manga by Negi Haruba was published by Kodansha from August 9, 2017, to February 19, 2020. 14 volumes have been released for the manga so far, and the last volume, originally published on April 17, 2020, was also the final volume of the series. The third season of the anime will begin in the middle of Volume 11. The fourth season is pretty unlikely, considering the remaining resource material. But now, let’s put that aside and get excited about the third season.
When is the third season of The Quintessential Quintuplets?
A third season of the anime has been confirmed as a movie, and the release date is finalized as 2022. The clear release date for the movie is not announced. However, it is possible to speculate on this issue. Renewal of the anime came just after its second season without waiting for disc sales and the detailed evaluation, and it shows that it was already in the plan or the production phase. After this stage, we do not think it will take years of decision and production. The anime’s first season aired at the beginning of 2019, and despite the studio change, the second season was set for October 2019. Although it comes to the screens in January 2021 after the delay, we think things will move faster this time. Bibury Animation Studio does not have a lot of work nowadays, and it can focus on the anime’s new season. With these accounts in mind, The Quintessential Quintuplets Sequel Movie will likely hit screens in early 2022. Till then, we recommend Eromanga Sensei and Wotakoi in the romantic comedy genre.
