The Quintessential Quintuplets is a beloved anime series in the romantic comedy genre. The anime, which came to the screen for the first time in 2019 with its first season, is adapted from the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. During the anime’s first season, Tezuka Productions, whom we knew with Adachi and Shimamura, was the creative studio. Bibury Animation Studios took part in the last season of the anime, which came to the screen with its second season between January 8, 2021 – March 26, 2021. We know the studio for the Azur Lane anime adaptation. The anime, licensed by Crunchyroll and Funimation, has viewers from all over the world. Besides, in Japan, it is broadcast on famous networks such as TBS, SUN, and BS11. Just after the second season of the anime, fans started to get excited about a third season. So have The Quintessential Quintuplets renewed for a third season? Here are all the details we know…
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. Starting to teach private lessons to a wealthy girl from the family, Futaro will begin teaching her other sisters as well. Some of the sisters are uncomfortable with Futaro’s presence in their apartment. But Futaro’s perseverance is gradually persuading these girls to accept him and improve his grades.
Throughout the series, Futaro develops unique relationships with each of the sisters. It is revealed through a flashforward that he is finally married to one of them. However, who she is is a big wonder.
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, the anime was renewed for a sequel. This news, which was thought to be the third season first, actually pointed to a movie. Although this news pleased some fans, the lack of news for a third season, for now, upset some fans.
As of September 4, 2022, at the time of writing, The Quintessential Quintuplets anime series has not yet been renewed for a third season. Although the anime movie, which was released on May 20, 2022, did not fully satisfy the longing for a third season, it was a sequel movie prepared for the continuation of the story and the reviews were quite positive. Although there is no official announcement about the third season, it is still possible to speculate about whether the anime will have a new season.
Is it popular enough to create a new season?
The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie, released in May, attracted great interest in Japan. The movie managed to sell 290k tickets in its first 3 days and generated $3.06 million in revenue. This income is also a significant plus factor in the anime’s financial need to order a new season.
In general, we say that an anime with 100k followers on Twitter is enough popularity for a new season. About 645k people on Twitter follow the anime’s page, which is still increasing. In addition, when we look at the disc sales of the previous seasons, we see that they managed to reach the targets. This shows that anime is enjoying serious popularity in Japan. According to Myanimelist user data, the anime is ranked 180th among all anime series based on its popularity, which shows that it has serious popularity. It is actively talked about on social media and has a high search volume on Google. Besides, the manga of the series has more than 16m copies in circulation. In this case, a new season confirmation would not be a surprise. Also, a video game of the series was recently released for PS4 and Switch.
The Quintessential Quintuplets anime’s second season disc sales were made in the 2021 winter season. The anime series, which sold five volumes in total, managed to sell 3,853 units on volume average. In general, above 4,000 sales is considered good, but it’s also worth considering the decline in disc sales in recent years. During the 2021 winter season, 45 anime’s discs were sold in Japan, including the second season of Yurucamp and SK8 the Infinity. The Quintessential Quintuplets ranked 8th among these series based on disc sales.
Was the movie final of the series?
How many seasons the anime will have depends 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 rest of the story was the script for the movie, released on May 20, 2022. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be an open door for a new season of the anime series, as the manga series is not continuing. The series is very popular, and the finale made the fans sad. Anime needs source material to have a new season, and what it takes is a spin-off manga series. We do not know if such a thing will happen in the future, but this possibility is not mature enough to evaluate and is quite low. We will inform you again when there is an official announcement in the future.
