The Quintessential Quintuplet the Movie is based on Negi Haruba’s Shonen manga of the same name that was serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine. The series ended with Volume 14 on April 17, 2020. Bibury Animation Studios G.K. animated the movie with Masato Jinbo’s direction, and PONY CANYON INC. distributed it to theaters in Japan. The movie is a sequel to the two seasons of TV anime.
Kodansha USA, the publisher of the manga’s English edition, describes the story 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!
