For those who are unfamiliar with the series, The Quintessential Quintuplets follows the story of high school student Futaro Uesugi. He is hired as a tutor for a family of quintuplets.

Each of the sisters – Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki – has her own unique personality and quirks. Making for an entertaining and engaging series that has captured the hearts of viewers everywhere.

How was the previous movie of the Quintessential Quintuplets anime?

The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie ends Fuutaro and the Quintuplets’ story, which may come as a surprise to fans who know the original manga’s plot.

The anime’s second season ends with the Sister’s War arc, but the movie starts at the School Festival, leaving a portion of the story untold. However, The School Festival arc, also known as the arc of many confessions, takes an interesting path.

  • It shifts the focus from Fuutaro’s relationship with the girls to the girls’ relationship with him and the conclusion of their stories.
  • Each of the Quints is given a section of the film that intertwines with the others’ stories, building up some mysteries with payoffs in another Nakano plot.
